LeBron James embarrassed by Cleveland Cavaliers

Published Add your comment

Miami Heat forward LeBron James is one of the most famous sportsmen - never mind NBA stars - in the world. However, the person in control of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ scoreboard still managed to spell his name wrong on Tuesday night.

The 29-year-old’s name flashed up on the scoreboard, but one eagle-eyed spectator spotted an error, took a photograph and posted it straight to Twitter.

Although they managed to get his surname right - you’d worry about anyone in charge of a scoreboard who couldn’t spell the name ‘James’ - the typist wrote ‘LaBron’ instead of ‘LeBron’.

No biggie, right? Well, LeBron wouldn’t have been impressed - that guy has a pretty big ego, after all. And when you consider that the Cavaliers are reportedly keen to to sign him in free agency this summer, it could prove to be a pretty costly typo.

James, who probably didn’t even realise at the time, went on to score 25 in the first quarter and 31 in the half, as the Heat ran out 100-96 winners in Ohio.

For the Cavaliers’ sake, let’s hope he didn’t notice - or be alerted to the photo on Twitter.
