If there’s one vehicle that connects as diverse a population as New York City, it’s city’s public train system. As famous (or infamous depending on who you talk to) as it is, the NYC train system hosts millions of people from all walks of life every day getting from point A to point B.

While making some waves in the media by proclaiming that Dallas Mavericks rookie Dennis Smith Jr. should be a New York Knick, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers descended upon The Big Apple for their game against the Knickerbockers Monday night. After a team shootaround this morning, the Cavs fell victim to the insane traffic of the NYC streets to get back to the team hotel. Rather than waiting around, the team did what many New Yorkers would do: they took the subway.

What a sight it must’ve been for normal commuters to see LeBron, Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade and the rest of the Cavaliers walking through Penn Station, and catching a local-bound C train. By the looks of the video, not everyone was thrilled to see King James on the train next to them, and it appears the MTA made it known that it’s stilland will always be #KnicksTape.
