The Miami Heat hit wintry Washington, D.C., with a majestic bang last night as "The King," LeBron James, graced us with his presence.
When we first spied him and his lady friends (which were dressed for a full-on party), we thought maybe the Wizards and the Heat had already faced off at Verizon Center. But, then, we realized this just the way His Royal Highness and pregames with his royal court.
Not only did LeBron and teammate Dwyane Wade have a dinner fit for a king at Georgetown's Cafe Milano -- a spot where senators, ambassadors and Clintons can be spotted on a regular basis -- the duo also hosted a party at Shadow Room nightclub on K Street , which featured a $50 cover. (Cash is king, they say.)
As bottles popped, LeBron sat on his VIP throne, surrounded by his ladies in waiting; loyal, iPhone photo-snapping disciples; and famous sports professionals (think Baltimore Ravens Player Michael Oher of "The Blind Side").
Around 1:45 a.m., he returned to his five-star hotel with the girls. (We hope he was worth the wait.)
Now, we love us some LeBron ... but, for the Wizards sake, we hope he's plagued with a royal hangover tomorrow.
After all, there is no royal road to learning.
