LeBron Tries to Get Candy for His Daughter Mid-game, Vitaly Potapenko Looks so Sad, Confused

Vitaly Potapenko, the Ukrainian big-man coach who played for the Cavs in the 90s, shook his head no when approached by James. His lips began to curl in remorse as LeBron sought a solution elsewhere. (The candy was eventually procured by what looked like a security guard.)
