LeBron James

Athletes love to get creative with the Stanley Cup. The NBA's Larry O'Brien Trophy? Not so much. But LeBron James isn't content to let it sit somewhere gathering dust.

No, no. He's keeping his eyes on it, and treating it right. That's why, when he went out to dinner with some friends one night, he brought that big, gold beacon of success with him, treating it to a nice seafood dinner at Alley Cat Oyster Bar.

His friends shared pictures of the dinner outing to social media:

Apparently fans watched LeBron enter the restaurant, and cheered for him as he went.

No word on whether the trophy liked what it ordered.
