Cavaliers Take The New York City Subway After Morning Shootaround

Cavaliers Take The New York City Subway After Morning Shootaround

"We had two options", Kyle Korver said on James' video.

Still, it's startling to see a LeBron James-led team being projected to miss the playoffs after seven straight Finals appearances.

The team, who were nearly too big for the subway vehicle, were squishing together for the ride. James was narrating the Cavs' six-minute trip for Uninterrupted when he made a decision to include the man sitting next to him in the video. And so you shuffle your way through to an open hand rail or clear seat, making as little eye contact as possible with your fellow riders and immediately tuning out any annoying noises. Or, as J.R. Smith put it, "like real citizens".

The Cleveland Cavaliers chose to get the full New York City experience on Monday.

As the Cavs were walking through Penn Station to the underground subway, one passerby said "KP gonna get y'all tonight" as he walked by James and his teammates.

Must've been a Knicks fan. "A 45-minute bus ride or a six-minute train ride".

At one point in the video, James turns the camera to the stranger sitting next to him, who, in true NY fashion, throws his hand in front and says, "Can you not?" to the delight of James and his teammates.

Ironically enough, the Knicks will now battle James and the Cavaliers on Monday evening at 7:30 p.m.
