Even when he's not playing, LeBron James finds ways to be in everybody's mouths. This weekend, specifically, he was the talk of the town on social media. After the premiere of Space Jam: A New Legacy, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar attended Game 5 of the 2021 NBA Finals.
He supported his long-time friend Chris Paul, but people still found a way to make this all about LeBron. The King managed to get a bottle of his Lobos 1707 tequila, "hiding" it under his court-side seat.
After pictures of the bottle surfaced, NBA fans weren't happy, calling out the player for bringing his own booze to the arena, knowing that's not allowed.
Bron even created a special day, "BYOT," to explain why he arrived at the game with his own liquor.
Unfortunately for James and Chris Paul, the Phoenix Suns couldn't take advantage of being at home, losing Game 5 of the series against the Milwaukee Bucks. Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday, and Khris Middleton showed up for the Bucks, taking a commanding 3-2 lead.
Game 6 is scheduled for Tuesday. It's unclear if LeBron will be in attendance again or if the Bucks will let him do the same at the Fiserv Forum. Let's not forget that team owner Wes Edens is a co-founder of Cincoro tequila alongside Michael Jordan, Jeanie Buss, and more.
Perhaps there will be a conflict of interests for Bron and the Bucks, but it's too soon to predict what will happen next.
