When forward LeBron James returned to his Dallas-area hotel after practice Monday, he opened the door to find none other than Rowdy, the Dallas Cowboys mascot, waiting to greet him.
James let out a hearty laugh and gave Rowdy a big hug. A Cavaliers official set up the surprise meeting.
“I was greeted by the Dallas Cowboys mascot,” James said. “That’s what happened.”
James, of course, is a huge Cowboys fan. He attended the first game played at AT&T Stadium when the Cowboys hosted the New York Giants on Sept, 21, 2009.
He also tweeted his approval of the Cowboys’ thrilling, 27-26 season-opening win against the Giants on Sept. 13 last season.
The Cavaliers beat the Dallas Mavericks Tuesday night 110-107 in overtime. James had 27 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists.
