A Corcoran Group agent is enjoying his 15 minutes of fame after a video of him swatting away basketball star LeBron James on the New York City subway went viral.

James Michael Angelo was en route to the firm’s Chelsea office on Monday when the Cleveland Cavaliers forward trained his camera on him. “Can you not?” Angelo said with annoyance, pushing the phone away.

The video has since received 216,388 views on YouTube, 38,586 likes on Twitter and 14,310 retweets — including one from Corcoran CEO Pam Liebman, who wrote: “Even @KingJames can’t stop an agent’s Monday hustle.”

“It wasn’t LeBron James, quote-unquote, that I didn’t like,” Angelo told Inman News. “He was clearly somebody who didn’t ride the subway often, and I probably would’ve had the same type of reaction to anybody else. I had no idea who he was.”

After his run-in with King James, Angelo (who said he’s in talks to launch a television talk show) posted a quippy tutorial on YouTube in which he offers the basketball star pointers for riding the subway and suggested he reach out if he was looking to buy a pad in the Big Apple. [Inman] — E.B.
