Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James has revealed that he will be honoured to play in front of the Royal Family against the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night.
Prince William and his wife, Duchess Kate Middleton, will be in attendance at the Barclays Center on Monday night as part of their visit of the East coast.
The royal couple will also meet with President Barack Obama on their trip, but James is excited about seeing them courtside on Monday and he has suggested that he would like to interact with them if the opportunity presents itself.
“It’s an honor,” James said before the Cavs practiced in New York City on Sunday.
“It’s a huge honor. The stuff that you read about, people like them are only in books growing up. And to hear that they’re coming to town to see me play and they want to see me do what I do best, it’s a huge honor.”
James still ranks the President coming to watch him play in person as the most special, but he understands the magnitude of the visit from William and Kate.
Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving shared his sentiment while coach David Blatt believes it is fantastic to see that level of interest in the game of basketball from people in different parts of the world and in different parts of life.
Meanwhile, New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony revealed to the media that he appreciated James attending Sunday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers and believes that it shows the level of interest and support that the two close friends show one another.
