LeBron James fan Dean Cain thinks getting a hug from the NBA superstar is worth more than $75,000, TMZ is reporting. After working out in Los Angeles on Sunday, the ‘Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23′ star spoke with a photographer from the celebrity news website, after the paparazzo noticed the actor’s LeBron James sneakers. The two began talking about the hug the Miami Heat star gave a fan on Friday, after the fan landed a $75,000 half-court shot.
Cain said getting a hug from James would be an “all-time life highlight.” The actor added that while he always liked the basketball player, he now likes him a little bit more.
But Cain said if he tried taking 100 shots, he would probably only make three, at most. So the TMZ photographer asked Cain what he thinks would be better-making the shot or getting a hug from James? The actor said “the money is a nice bonus … but people would pay more than $75,000 just to have that (LeBron James come out and tackle you on the floor) happen.”
