LeBron James Has the Internet Lit for All the Wrong Reasons

NBA superstar gets pelted with basketball during warm-ups.

Published January 11, 2016

Hey, even the greats get caught slipping once in a while.

That was the case Sunday, when LeBron James was drilled with an errant pass during pre-game warm-ups before his Cleveland Cavaliers played the Philadelphia 76ers

As the video clip, which has since gone viral, shows, King James calls for the ball, only to get a second one rifled toward him, hitting him right in the face and knocking him down to the ground.

It's all good though, as James laid on the hardwood laughing off the moment with teammates, probably all realizing that he would have the Internet lit up in a matter of minutes.

It turned out to be a lighthearted moment because James scored 37 points to lead his Cavs to victory.

But still, we'll be seeing this blooper for years to come.

This gives a whole new meaning to throwing rocks at the King's throne.
