Olympic Swimmer Turns Down LeBron James’ Dinner Proposal
Rucuss staffAugust 1, 2012
The USA Basketball team may not be living at the Olympic Village, but they did hang out there to meet other US athletes.
The basketball team made their rounds through the village and at one point the players met members of the US swim team last week. Swimmer Lauren Perdue got a chance to take a photo with Lebron James and she even tweeted about the experience.
Perdue tweeted,”Lebron James just invited me to dinner… Um wuuuutttt?!?”
Here’s what Perdue told the Charlotte Observer’s Scott Fowler about the invite:
“He did,” Perdue said. “He was kind of joking but he was basically like, ‘Would you like to come eat with me at the dining hall?’ And I said, ‘Um, I’m sorry, I have a curfew. So I turned that one down, yeah.”
Perdue said LeBron was “gracious” and certainly didn’t imply that he was asking her to anything other than a meal at the Olympic Village dining hall.
Even Kings get turned down. Better luck next time Lebron.
