Moment Lebron James smartly ran away from slayqueens trying to approach him (Video)

NBA legend, Lebron James is being applauded online after he found a way to prevent any interaction with a group of young ladies.

He was walking out of an event which took place at the mall when two female groupies were waiting for him in front of an elevator.

In a trending video, the Los Angeles Lakers star could be seen fastening his pace and using an escalator to avoid the slayqueens.

The 6ft 9in athlete made it difficult for them to catch up with him as he went down the escalator that was moving in the opposite direction (upwards).

The ladies called out to him and hurriedly attempted to catch up but they could no match his pace and the escalator also prevented them from moving downwards.

Social media users hailed Lebron for avoiding the women as it could lead to temptation that will affect his scandal-free marriage to Savannah James.
