LeBron James is a hard figure to miss. Not only is the Los Angeles Lakers star a behemoth of a man, but his celebrity status ensures there’s fanfare wherever he goes. That’s why it’s probably extra impressive that he managed to sneak in a bottle of tequila into Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
The Lakers star heavily implied such on Twitter right after the Suns-Bucks game.
Judging by the amount of alcohol already consumed from that bottle, I’d say LeBron James had quite the pregame experience before entering Phoenix Suns arena. The move was clearly a publicity stunt (and we fell for it) but the just the fact that the Lakers star really decided to bring an entire bottle of tequila into an NBA Finals game is just pretty hilarious.
Did he think that it would seem like a normal thing that people do? Did he intentionally spill some to make it feel “used” and not just an unopened bottle? These are questions we’ll probably never find the answer to.
But LeBron James’ tequila promotion was only the secondary goal on his agenda for Saturday night. The Lakers star was there to support his longtime friend and Suns star Chris Paul.
