The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge meet LeBron James

The British are angry that NBA Superstar LeBron James broke royal protocol when he met the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last night.

Earlier I told you that LeBron showered before meeting the royal couple at the Barclays Center after a NBA game. Well it seems I was wrong. LeBron was unwashed and wearing sweaty gym clothes when he met the royal couple.

Mr. James did not dignify himself or the royals by at least changing his sweaty clothes before meeting with Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton following the Cavaliers vs Brooklyn Nets game. We British are taught as children that cleanliness is next to Godliness.

Furthermore, Mr. James broke royal protocol by touching the Duchess without authorization. Look at Kate's body language as LeBron put his arm around her shoulder.

We Brits are not the touchy feely sort like you Americans. Touching is not allowed unless by invitation. Sadly, American children are not taught the importance of respecting the boundaries of someone else's personal space.

I'm embarrassed for LeBron. I thought he knew better.

From In Flex We Trust (via UK's Daily Mail):

Etiquette expert William Hanson told MailOnline that although the Duchess is unlikely to give Mr James the cold shoulder, he still should have kept his arm away from her.

‘Americans are much more tactile than we Brits and this is another example of an American being too touchy feely with British royalty. You’d have think they’d have learned by now.’

The 6ft 8in basketball star also appeared alongside the royals in a sweaty top, which some may regard as bad form.

Mr Hanson added: ‘A shower would have been preferable but he had just finished a game – so even more reason for him not have opened his pits by lifting his arm and placing it around Her Royal Highness!’

    Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was injured in a car accident on Tuesday afternoon.
    A car crashed and overturned on the Church Street bridge over I-277 about 12:30 p.m. and ambulances were on the scene. A second car involved in the crash was also in the road, near Hill Street.
    A man appearing to be Newton was seen strapped down to a stretcher, according to a WBTV report.
    "We are closely monitoring the situation of a car wreck involving Cam Newton," the Panthers said in a statement. "We will have more information at an appropriate time."
    Newton did not suffer life threatening injuries in the accident and was conscious when he was transported to the hospital, a source told ESPN's Ed Werder.
    The Charlotte Observer tweeted out a photo of Newton after he was removed from his vehicle.

    Cam Newton is conscious and smiling after crash in uptown Charlotte.

    Updated 1:21 p.m. EST: Police sources are now saying Cam Newton sustained no injuries from the serious vehicle accident he was involved in earlier this afternoon. The Carolina Panthers quarterback was put on a stretcher and taken away in an ambulance as a precaution only.

    Exactly! All those diamonds on her crowd and England has not One diamond mine. I'm not fooled by the pageantry. If we rely on histroy than I know the royals for being obstructionist colonials who will kill at will. They are masters of eugenics. They are masters at genocide. They will take what's yours and make you fight for it back (ask the Asian Indians, Congo, ect).

I can't stand when people come into my personal space uninvited and unwashed to boot... it was very rude of him not to show the respect to the future king and queen of England - I mean dang dude would you meet the president unwashed and smelly... big Neanderthal....

    MsMello 30 - I disagree with you - Americans are the ones who feel everyone should conform to our ways - I travel abroad and I have a lot of friends and family from different cultures and they all say the same thing American tourist are the absolute worst and I believe it cause I've witnessed it myself - getting mad cause signs ain't in English - bish you in Montreal learn French....

    I was watching this old movie last night - reservation road (a movie about a fatal hit and run) anyway there is a scene where dude is emailing someone in a support group and the guy says - I was told you don't get justice in the justice system all you get is the law - that chit hit home to me - yeah it was only a movie but that statement was so true - if you want justice you won't find it in the US legal system because the system is based on the laws and the laws are set up to make blacks (minorities)fail.... so it all goes back to - DO YOU VOTE? If you don't then you can blame all this police brutality and other unfair bullchit on your lack of involvement... and I mean on a state level not just federal elections to vote for your next president - you have to vote in your community where the laws that govern you are made...

  • MzTee

    Hold the hell up. The royal couple went back there to meet him immediately following the game. They probably didn't even allow the man to wipe his frickin' forehead before security ushered in the damn royals for their meet and greet opportunity.

    I don't give a damn how Brits treat the royals who they deify as Gods, which is fcuking stupid. If LeBron was in Englad, he should follow British convention when meeting the royals. But god dammit, the royals are on American soil. They need to adapt to our customs. GTFOH with the BS already. They came back to the Bron Bron...it damn sure wasn't the other way around.
