Friday night LeBron James, who recently signed with the Miami Heat, celebrated at LAVO. King James was joined by Chris Paul of the New Orleans Hornets, San Diego Charger Shaun Phillips, Atlanta Hawk Josh Smith, Rudy Gay of the Memphis Grizzlies, Boston Celtic Rajon Rondo and Larry Hughes of the Charlotte Bobcats. Fans of all ages waited outside the hot spot for the arrival of King James, who sat down to dinner at the Italian eatery after walking the red carpet. Favorites including Calamari, Chicken Parmagiano and the Kobe Meatball were served along with Crown and Ginger cocktails and Lemon Drop shots.
After dinner LeBron and friends took over VIP tables on the dance floor in the nightclub where they danced and partied fueled by Perrier Jouet Rose Champagne, Patron Tequila and vodka. LeBron was presented with a cake from Gimme Some Sugar, a replica of his new Miami Heat number six jersey. Miami Heat teammate Dwayne Wade joined the party after hitting TAO earlier in the night and Denver Nugget Chauncy Billups was spotted enjoying the night with his fellow NBA stars.
