WATCH: LeBron James pretends to drink beer on the court

By Michael Dixon

LeBron James nearly gave us the greatest moment in sports history in Monday.

We can confidently say that thousands of people at Quicken Loans Arena on Monday are enjoying a beer or two. James very nearly joined them.

With the Cleveland Cavaliers comfortably ahead, LeBron narrowly missed a layup that would have given him and and-1 attempt. When running towards the sidelines, he spotted a person carrying a beer and thought, what the heck, why not?

LeBron has certainly earned the right to drink a cold one or two — especially in Cleveland.

Next time, though, go all out. If you’re going to grab a beer, chug it Stone Cold Steve Austin style.
