LeBron James Irks NYC Subway Passenger During Cavs’ Ride In Big Apple

Even LeBron James must follow the unwritten rules of public transportation.

The Cleveland Cavaliers superstar angered a New York City subway rider Monday during the NBA team’s unlikely underground journey. James was narrating the Cavs’ six-minute trip for Uninterrupted when he decided to include the man sitting next to him in the video. But the man wanted no part of the social-media fame James offers.

“Can you not” are three words that show how little excitement celebrity sightings generate among everyday New Yorkers.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority was much happier to have the Cavs on board.

The Cavs are visiting the Big Apple for Monday’s game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

Needless to say, James didn’t leave any of his personal tickets for Mr. “can you not” at the arena’s will-call window.
