LeBron James posted a video on his social media accounts Monday afternoon.
“On our way back from shoot around,” James said in the video, posted to Uninterrupted. “Decided to take a different transportation this time. Where we at Kyle?”
James’ teammate, sharpshooter Kyle Korver, responded.
“On the train,” Korver said. “We had two options: 45 minute bus ride or a six minute train ride.”
“So we decided to hop on the train with the squad,” James added.
James then looked at the guy sitting next to him, before calling him out.
“I don’t know this dude right here. He tripping.” James said.
“Can you not?” the man asked James, after having the camera pointed at him.
James then shifted focus to Dwyane Wade.
“Where D-Wade?” James asked.
“We out here dawg,” Wade said. “We out here. We on the train. Headed back to the hotel. Getting ready for the Knicks game tonight.”
James later said that it was the first time he has ever ridden on a New York City subway.
“As long as I’m getting on the right [expletive] train, that’s all I care about,” James said in a video for the NBA Instagram account.
The Cavaliers boarded the train at 34th St. and Penn Station.
“Thanks so much for taking the subway Lebron, but the King of this town is @kporzee and we’re riding with the Knicks tonight. #KnicksTape,” the MTA tweeted.
The Cavaliers and the Knicks tipped off at 7:30 p.m. Monday at Madison Square Garden.
