LeBron James Ditched His Car And Rode His Bike To Last Night’s Game
With the ING Miami Marathon backing up traffic Sunday, fans were advised to see alternate routes to get to Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bulls. LeBron James took that advice to heart.
You figure that an NBA star with an estimated net worth of $120M would probably go to work in a Maybach with the curtains drawn, right? Nah, not LeBron James. While on his way to the AmericanAirlines Arena for last night’s Chicago Bulls @ Miami Heat game, James decided to ride his bike rather than take a car because of the traffic caused by the ING Miami Marathon. The journey took him about 40 minutes as he weaved in between cars with two of his associates.
Once James was in the building, he’d go onto rack up 35 points and 11 boards in Miami’s 93-97 victory over Chicago. Yeah, you know, just bike to your job then beast out for 30-plus points against the league MVP—what did you do at work today, again?
