LeBron James is probably one of the few people who can bring their own liquor bottle to an arena and not get kicked out.
During game 5 of the NBA Finals, many fans noticed LeBron, who was seen sitting courtside to support his close friend Chris Paul, had a bottle of Lobos 1707 tequila which he co-owns with severe other NBA players.
Hey @suns are fans aloud to bring in their own alcohol? Just curious pic.twitter.com/5znw36nfzV

After fans noticed the half-empty tequila bottle LeBron implied that he snuck the bottle in without the NBA’s knowledge.
They let me??? Ok we’ll go with that! “BYOT” Bring Your Own Tequila! 😁😎🐺🐺🐺🐺🐺 @Lobos1707 https://t.co/HbfenvIK8O

Of course, fans had interesting reactions to LeBron bringing his own tequila bottle to the game.
Ridiculous double standard. Anyone else would be arrested for bringing their own liquor/ glass bottle in. And nice wide stance to infringe upon that ladies personal space next to him. Always all class, Bron… 🙄🙄

No one is allowed to have a glass bottle nowhere in the Arena, let along on the court. So LeBron sneak it in the Arena and out to the court.
