LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers take NY subway ride following Monday shootaround

The Cleveland Cavaliers made a decision to get an authentic New York City experience on Monday before a game against the New York Knicks.

"We had two options: a 45-minute bus ride, or six-minute train ride", Korver said, attesting to the remarkable amount of traffic in the city.

A Monday morning subway ride with a team of National Basketball Association players?

In videos posted by both the Cavaliers and Bleacher Report's Uninterrupted, James and his teammates take a jaunt on the railway (with James explaining the trip and ribbing some teammates, too).

Other riders waved to LeBron as the train continued to move along.

Thanks to that famous NY traffic, it was going to take almost an hour to get back to the hotel after shoot-around, so LeBron and Co. chose to take a six-minute train ride instead. Once LeBron turned his camera on the man, he stuck his hand out and say "Can you not" before getting up and moving seats. Fans can be heard saying hello to former Knick J.R. Smith as the team makes their way to the platform.

It was LeBron's first time riding the subway in Manhattan, and it quickly became apparent that he could use some etiquette lessons, courtesy of real New Yorkers.

As New York attempts to improve to 8-5, however, one of the tallest tasks to date is standing in front of it: A motivated Cleveland Cavaliers team.
