Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is the cheapest guy in the NBA, and his latest Twitter Blue fiasco is just the latest proof of that.
If fans are seeking for further proof that James is a cheapskate, though, then look no further than Chris Fedor's latest revelation about the superstar forward. During his time covering James when he was still with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Cleveland.com reporter saw firsthand how stingy LeBron was when he refused to pay for an ad-free version of Pandora.
“One of the most underrated great moments of covering the 4 straight Finals years was walking into the locker room, listening to music blaring from LeBron's speaker at his locker and hearing commercials play in between because he wouldn't pay to upgrade to commercial-free Pandora,” Fedor wrote.
LeBron James went viral for his blatant refusal to pay for that verified blue check mark on Twitter, and while many thought it was because he's against the policy, it might be simply because he's really cheap and nothing else.
For what it's worth, it's not like the Lakers leader is hiding that fact. Over the years, fans have heard stories on how James tries to save as much as possible, even if that means not receiving the conveniences offered when paying for stuff. Remember when Bron said he's not paying for roaming data or even buying apps?

James may be a billionaire and the owner of multiple businesses and money-making machines, but you can't expect him to spend big on things that he feels he doesn't really need. Perhaps that's part of the reason he's ultra rich.
