King of the MTA: LeBron James, Cavs Ride Subway Before Knicks Game

In a video posted on the Uninterrupted Twitter page, LeBron is shown taking a video on the subway while sitting next to Kyle Korver.
How'd you like to jump on the subway on your way to work, somehow snag a seat and then realize you're sitting next to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers?
Rather than dealing with the pesky Manhattan traffic after Monday morning's shootaround, several members of the Cavs, including LeBron James and Jose Calderon, chose to take the subway back to the team hotel.
Still, it's startling to see a LeBron James-led team being projected to miss the playoffs after seven straight Finals appearances. LeBron said the team's options back to the hotel were a 45 minutes bus ride or a six minute train ride.
Other riders waved to LeBron as the train continued to move along.
