LeBron James snacks on some popcorn during exhibition game (vid)


It looks like the newest trend for NBA superstars to help pass the time during the meaningless preseason is to make it appear even more worthless by doing a bit of snacking when they should be otherwise occupied.

LeBron James became the latest player to casually feast upon concession stand fare during Thursday’s 119-94 preseason loss to the Toronto Raptors at Quicken Loans Arena.

Mmm … looks tasty.

Kevin Durant seemed to start the snacking trend earlier this week when he partook in a young fan’s nachos during a Golden State Warriors open practice.

There’s a good chance Durant’s former Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Russell Westbrook doesn’t think this is all that “cute” if he were being perfectly honest.

James’ popcorn-popping, on the other hand? Perhaps. If anything, it made anyone watching it develop a hankering for some good old-fashioned snacking.
