Look, having a camera shoved in your face during a morning commute on public transit is as faux pas as it gets, but not realizing you're sitting next to LeBron James is blasphemous.

As the Cleveland Cavaliers took over the New York City subway Monday morning, James recorded his neighbor on a cramped seat who immediately ushered the superstar's cell phone away. It turns out James Michael Angelo, the unsuspecting passenger in question, had no idea he was being recorded by one of basketball's greatest.

"It was first thing in the morning," he said. "I hadn't finished my latte and I didn't feel like being filmed. Plus, it's not good lighting in the subway," he told For The Win's Charles Curtis.

After his friends informed Angelo about his newly developed infamy on social media, the comedian and real estate agent called out James for his lack of public transit etiquette.

"So this morning I was on the train and out of nowhere a crowd of ENORMOUS basketball players got on the train and pretty much crushed me," Angelo wrote on Facebook. "The guy next to me kept nearly elbowing me in the face, I nicely asked him to watch my head.

"He wasn't very apologetic, in fact he was kind of a dick about it."
