This guy most be slow or something to think he could run on the court and dap up Labron James…
17-year-old Anthony Erskine from Mount Vernon, told friends he would meet Lebron that night. Seeing his only chance was fading after LeBron exited the game, Erskine sprinted onto the court and stood face to face with his idol.
“I said yo LeBron, what’s up? I just wanted to meet you, I love the way you play,” said Erskine, in an interview with BET the next morning.
The 6-foot-8, 250 pound James responded, “Oh alright, that’s cool.”
Erskine was quickly surrounded by security and hustled off the floor to a back room where NYPD arrested him. The kid sat in jail for 3 hours until his sister bailed him out.
Proving he is the nicest guy in the NBA, James told reporters, “It was a great feeling. You get a fan to come down there to express the way he feels about you… told me I was his favorite player, that never happens,” James said. “I respect him. I respect his pride and for him to come out there and tell me something like that face to face. It’s like the (most) unbelievable thing that ever happened to me.”
