LeBron might be one of the best athletes on the planet and preparing for the NBA Finals, but King James says he’s just like one of us, you guys.
The Cavaliers superstar — whose team, after an eight-day hiatus, faces the Warriors in Game 1 on Thursday night — told reporters that he spent his downtime chowing down on burgers, watching “Pitch Perfect 2” and other totally “normal stuff.”
In fact, LeBron was particularly fond of the acapella flick, calling it “unbelievable,” as well as Rebel Wilson’s character Fat Amy.
“I went to the movies last week at a regular movie theater,” James said during a press conference. “I went to go see, um — what’s the movie with the girls and they be singing? ‘Pitch Perfect 2,’ which is unbelivable. Fat Amy is awesome. I love her, wherever you are, you’re awesome.”
Wilson responded to James’ praise on Twitter.
“Thanks @KingJames for the shout out today, your taste in movies is as amazing as your basketball!” she tweeted on Wednesday.
LeBron isn’t the only athlete to gush about “Pitch Perfect 2” — Texans star J.J. Watt tweeted on May 28: “Can we get a Barden Bellas world tour?”
Even members of the Green Bay Packers made cameos in the movie, flexing their vocal chords.
