LeBron James is famously a huge fan of Halloween. But on this day in 2021, it was someone else who managed to steal the show while James was helping his Los Angeles Lakers defeat the Houston Rockets.
A photograph taken during the showed an incredibly eerie sight of James playing on the court and seemingly watching himself from the crowd.
That fan is former NBA player Patrick Christopher. He went undrafted in 2010 and played for the Utah Jazz briefly in addition to a number of non-NBA teams.
James himself had an interesting reaction on social media.
The four-time MVP did not have a good night from the floor as he shot just 6-of-19 from the field, missed all six of his 3-point attempts and scored only 15 points.
However, the team defeated the Houston Rockets rather easily because of its defense.
Carmelo Anthony provided a much needed spark as he led the way with 23 points and shot 8-of-14 from the field, including 5-of-8 from downtown.
