LeBron James is already showing that he would become an instant hit in Tinseltown
The new LA Lakers acquisition whose move was a surprise to many seems to have already found perfect tour guides to help him navigate the nightlife in Los Angeles: Leonardo DiCaprio and Al Pacino.
The trio was spotted at a Beverly Hills restaurant on Wednesday night.
To make things interesting, Leonardo DiCaprio attempted to distract the paparazzi from the other two stars and he, therefore, exited the building through the front entrance while both LeBron and Pacino left through the back.
This did not help much as they were still swarmed by photographers at the back of the building.
According to TMZ, LeBron’s business partner, Maverick Carter, was also in attendance which gives the impression that the dinner event was more business than pleasure.
Or maybe it was both? DiCaprio is known to be an LA Lakers fan and maybe he just wanted to welcome the new acquisition to town with some dinner.
LeBron already owns two homes in Los Angeles though and is no stranger to celebrity culture.
The basketball legend has also already dined with Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson earlier this week, however, he hasn’t gone out to dinner with any of his new teammates yet.
Meanwhile, LeBron’s agent, Rich Paul, has termed his move to the Lakers as a ‘Basketball decision’, this is after backlash with many stating that LeBron was only in it because of financial incentives.
Paul who was speaking on the NBA TV broadcast of the Summer League on Thursday night, said; “But for him (James), it was just a basketball decision.”
“It was basically about what he wanted to do and what made him happy. And he earned that being in his 16th season,” Paul said. “You don’t have athletes in their 16th season be the No. 1 free agent.
