You'd think everybody in the city of Cleveland would know who LeBron James is. Surely?

The man who ended Cleveland's 52-year wait for a title in any major professional sport, has led the Cavaliers since 2003 - barring a four-year spell in Miami - and is the biggest name in American professional sports.

Well, incredibly, you'd be mistaken. Despite leading the Cavaliers to the NBA title in 2016 - ending the franchise's long wait for a ring - there are still people in the city who do not know what he looks like. In fact, there are people who confuse him for Patrick Patterson.


That's right. The Toronto Raptors' forward Patrick Patterson. The 27-year-old is currently in Cleveland and went to a Chipotle in the city and was mistaken for the three-time finals and five-time regular season MVP.

Patterson shared the hilarious story on his Snapchat and admitted he was tempted to pretend he was LeBron in order to get some free food. Regardless of how much money NBA stars make, you can't turn down free grub.

However, showing as much surprise as us, Patterson fessed up to the fact he wasn't the 'King'.

Chipotle employee, whoever you are, hang your head in shame.
