The inadvertent flash was witnessed by millions of viewers in Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors.
The incident happened very quickly when cameras caught the player adjusting his shorts as he started to tuck in his jersey. He briefly pulled down the compression shorts he wore under his game shorts, exposing himself to reportedly over 18.5 million viewers.
This wasn’t a good night for James, whose team also lost Game 4 after the star player hit his head on a camera earlier in the evening, requiring stitches.
"I had a slight headache, which I think every one of you guys would probably have if you ran into a camera," James told USA Today. "Like I said, I got a few stitches and I got a slight headache right now, but I'll be fine with that."
