LeBron James got engaged back in January to his long-time girlfriend but as we all know, the Olympics are in a different area code so there is no cheating. Apparently, after posing for a photo with American swimmer Lauren Perdue, LeBron asked her to dinner, only to be shot down.
“He was kind of joking,” Perdue said, “but he was basically like, ‘Would you like to come eat with me at the dining hall?’ And I said, ‘Um, I’m sorry, I have a curfew. So I turned that one down, yeah.”
Perdue did add that LeBron didn’t imply it was anything other than dinner in the dining hall, but hey, I wouldn’t be a sports blogger without making rash assumptions based on partial data.
