The surprisingly simple reason why LeBron James didn’t meet with The Undertaker
When the Cavs opened the season at home a few weeks ago, it was tough to miss the dude in the long black trenchcoat.
Judging by the shirt, it seems like LeBron is a fan of the Undertaker, at least a little bit. So why would he give him the cold shoulder? Cleveland.com’s Joe Vardon provided a clear, concise and reasonable explanation.
Here's a life lesson. If you don't have an appointment, don't already know James personally, aren't a business associate or a small child, the odds of “meeting” James before or after a Cavs game in or near the locker room are not great. I once saw Houston Astros stud second baseman Jose Altuve try to get a meeting with James after a game against the Houston Rockets in Texas. The request came through various team PR officials. Let's just say James had no interest.
Another rule. James is not cool with someone purposefully trying to make money or gain fame through him, away from the court. In other words, no PR stunts that don't benefit James. He wore an Undertaker T-shirt. For him, that's enough.
No matter how many WWE titles he has, the Undertaker doesn’t even come close to matching LeBron’s star power.
