Lebron James Asks Swimmer Lauren Perdue to Dinner, She Turns Him Down
Lebron is the King of the NBA, but his pimp game needs a little work.
Lauren Perdue is one of the United States’ top swimmers, and on Wednesday she swam the first leg of the 4×200 women’s freestyle relay.
Just before the Games began, she tweeted, “Lebron James just invited me to dinner…Um wuuuutttt?!?” Around that time, the photo at right showed up on Perdue’s Instagram account. That is most definitely LeBron, trendy dork glasses and all.
On Wednesday, just after her relay, she gave the full scoop. Before the Games began, the “Dream Team” hung with the swimmers in a kind of Avengers-meets-Justice-League American hero summit. In the course of that, LeBron did indeed invite Perdue to dinner.
“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.’”
Got shot down by the curfew excuse, I haven’t heard that one since High School. Lebron if you are going to ask a woman to dinner, don’t ask her to dinner in the “Dining Hall”. Even Dollarnaires think that was a bit weak. You are in London find a nice restaurant and maybe taking off those dumb glasses with no lenses might help as well.
