LeBron James Sat In A Throne For A Press Conference And Fans Are Loving It

LeBron James Sat In A Throne For A Press Conference And Fans Are Loving It

LeBron James was seated on a throne during an online press conference in Orlando. Rather fitting, don't you think?

The man dubbed 'King James' sent social media into meltdown when footage emerged of him taking his rightful place on the throne while answering questions from amused reporters.

With most press unable to enter the NBA bubble of Walt Disney World, players and coaches have had to undertake their media obligations via Zoom calls.

Only this time, LA Lakers star James decided to mix things up a little.

With LeBron's chair too low for the screen, it's understood surrounding staff acted fast and replaced it with a conveniently-placed throne from the Disney World hallway in which the teams were staying.

The three-time NBA champion was quick to respond when the media asked him if the move was intentional.

After discussing his side's opening-day clash with local rivals the Clippers, James was quickly whisked away and replaced by Lakers head coach Frank Vogel.

But unlike the 16-time All Star, Vogel was supplied with a regular stool for his online press conference - not King James' royal chair.

And as the duo were swapping positions, LeBron hilariously said: "Ahhh, they took away the throne!"
