LeBron James' Steak Must Be Well Done, Cut Into Pieces

All seems relatively quiet on the Linsanity front at the moment, so it's time to get back to LeBron James! Today's fun story has to do with steak, how he treats his servers and what alcoholic beverages the Miami Heat star favors. This is what it's come to.

From Cleveland Frowns by way of Matt Moore:

(S)he also told us that LeBron liked to drink apple martinis, which comes as no surprise because apple martinis are delicious, and if you had a job where you could take a four-hour nap every day to sleep off the sugar hangover, you would drink them, too. Relatedly, LeBron would ask his servers to have his steak (well done) already cut up for him, which corroborates a report by a (former?) server at Johnny's who once told Grzegorek that LeBron would order his spaghetti cut up as well, and also of course enhances the credibility of our source.

The story has evolved into an intense Twitter debate about how to cook a steak and whether it's okay for a wealthy person to have someone else cut up their food. It's a Wednesday afternoon, as you could probably tell.

But if we're going to butcher (food term) LeBron for preferring a cut-up, well-done steak, let's not forget about young Ricky Rubio.

Lamb referenced that when Rubio and his camp had dinner with Kings management that fateful night he visited Sacramento, Mama Rubio cut Ricky's steak for him. Lamb said he knew right there Ricky would not be a King.

This all means nothing. Nothing at all. Carry on.
