On a humid Tuesday morning, fans began lining up at the Culver City location in hopes of seeing the three-time NBA champion. The line stretched around the business as people braved the hot temperatures.
“He’s a celebrity and it’s a once-in-a-lifetime for me,” said Yolanda Echirivel, of Culver City. “I don’t think I’ll get to see him again in person.”
ABC7 asked Jonathan Argueta if he thinks James will indeed appear at the pizza shop.
“I think so,” the Highland Park resident said. “There’s like a 99 percent chance he’s coming here.”
What will he say to James if given the opportunity?
“Welcome to L.A.,” Argueta said. “And thanks for coming. Hope we win a bunch of championships with you here.”
After the pizza party was announced to be over, LeBron’s wife posted a photo of LeBron chilling at home floating around the pool in a pink donut floatie.
