NY subway commuter irked by Cavs jokes to LeBron James: ‘I’m coming for you’

The Cleveland Cavaliers made waves Monday for passengers on a New York subway by taking it after a morning shootaround at Madison Square Garden ahead of the team’s game against the New York Knicks. And one commuter who is now enjoying his 15 minutes of fame after saying “Can you not?” to LeBron James during the ride has jokingly took to Twitter to say he’s coming after the Cavaliers superstar.

James Michael Angelo, a comedian and real estate agent, is now Internet famous thanks to unwittingly snagging a bit role in a video James posted to Uninterrupted.

Angelo made it clear in a subsequent interview he simply wanted to mind his own business and was not interested in being part of the scene.

“I noticed a bunch of tall guys getting in the train, but I was listening to U2 and I didn’t want to be filmed,” Angelo told USA TODAY.

“It was first thing in the morning,” Angelo said. “I hadn’t finished my latte and I didn’t feel like being filmed. Plus, it’s not good lighting in the subway.”

Angelo actually wasn’t even aware that the sizeable men impeding upon his personal space were an NBA team. He instead just thought the Cavaliers were some random college basketball team.

“To be honest with you, they got on and they completely squished me and he was really unaware of his space,” Angelo said.

Angelo is taking a lighthearted approach to his newfound Internet fame, taking to Twitter to jokingly issue a warning to James.

“LeBron, I just want you to know, I’m coming for you,” Angelo jokes in the Twitter video. Nicely done.
