The British are angry that NBA Superstar LeBron James broke royal protocol when he met the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last night.
After leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 110-88 win over the hapless Brooklyn Nets, LeBron “King” James quickly showered before holding court with The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Monday. LeBron presented the prince with replicas of Cavaliers jerseys for himself and his son Prince George. LeBron and Brooklyn Nets center Kevin Garnett were the only NBA players on the short list to meet the Royals after the game.
