LAS VEGAS, NV (WOIO) - LeBron James gave one of his hometown fans something to talk about while partying in Vegas earlier this week.
James was letting loose at Lavo Restaurant and Nightclub inside the Palazzo hotel Monday morning, July 26th around 3 a.m. when Canton, Ohio's Mix 94.1 FM radio personality "Fig" made the comment.
"Eventually I got up front and I said, 'hey man Akron sill loves you' had the camera up snapped it a few times he kind of gave me the bird and smiled," said Fig.
Way to keep it classy LeBron!
Now there's no doubt in Fig's mind that LeBron flipped him off. He said LeBron wasn't real thrilled earlier in the evening when he was introduced and most of the people in the nightclub boooooed, but he never expected this.
"This is unlike LeBron so I think the reaction is pretty negative and its see ya man have fun in Miami," said Fig.
Earlier this week, the Akron City Council unanimously approved a resolution thanking James for 'his extraordinary basketball accomplishments and his continuing involvement in the Akron community.'
According to the Akron Beacon Journal, council president, Marco Sommerville said, ''no matter what his decision was, he's still from Akron, Ohio. He's a hometown person who we need to support.''
