After taking a shot at the New York Knicks for drafting Frank Ntilikina instead of Dennis Smith Jr., LeBron James further trolled the squad by riding on the New York City subway with his fellow Cleveland Cavaliers' teammates ahead of the Cavs-Knicks game last night. He then posted a near triple-double (23 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds) to rally the Cavs to a 104-101 road win at Madison Square Garden.
But as much as Twitter is lit with reaction about his performance and the Cavs' win, it's still buzzing about a strap hanger that King James encountered on the train yesterday.
With his cellphone camera recording the video, LeBron panned around to show a white man sitting next to him, jokingly telling the guy, "I don't know this dude right here, he's tripping," to which the man shot back, "Can you not!?" while using his hand to block out James' camera.
The man later revealed himself as James Michael Angelo, a New York City real estate agent and comedian, as reported by USA TODAY, and became known as the "Can You Not" guy.
The viral moment made for instant hilarity, which was upped a notch when Angelo gave an interview. The combination of his moment with King James and his interview drove Twitter insane with these hilarious reactions.
The "Can You Not" guy.
Real tears at him saying he has "no idea" who LeBron is because he doesn't watch football.
You just never know what's going to happen on the subway in NYC.
LeBron needs to make another viral star with each trip to NYC from here on out.
