Young fan adorably freaks out when she realizes LeBron James is sitting next to her for Lakers-Warriors

LeBron James ruled out with a foot injury for Saturday’s game against the Golden State Warriors may have been a disappointment to many viewers, but it ended up being a year for one young fan.

The Los Angeles Lakers star, who is currently sidelined with a foot injury, ended up watching the game from the bench. It meant sitting next to one fan who couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw who sat next to her.

Imagine “Ichiro girl”, but if she has to spend several hours sitting next to the player. You also have to appreciate the other person sitting next to her who takes quick pictures of her reaction.

The young fan soon went viral, to the point where she was interviewed on ESPN in the second quarter. She explained that she had originally asked for places hoping to see James break Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s scoring record, but was still excited about his performance until he was eliminated. Then she got quite a surprise.

The reaction of the girl to the fact that she is sitting next to James:

“So I asked for these tickets over three months ago because I was so excited, I really hoped LeBron would break the record in this game. And even when he beat him, I thought: “My God, congratulations.” And I was so excited to come to this game… When I heard that he had a foot injury, I was sad and he didn’t know if he was coming with the team to this game or not. Sitting here, I’m obviously not as tall as him, so I could only see his shoes. And then I look up and see LeBron James.

“What goes on in my head is like, ‘Oh my God, the greatest basketball player of all time is sitting next to me. I just go crazy thinking, “Oh my God, this is the best moment of my life.”

She also I ended up taking a photo with James. after a game in which the Lakers won 109–103, 26 points behind Dennis Schroeder.
