James is a longtime friend of Super Bowl halftime performer Rihanna. While he just accomplished one of the most impressive records in sports history and it won’t be broken any time soon, the fans didn’t him much love.

The superstar seemed unfazed by the reaction, however, and responded by putting on an invisible crown as a nod to his « King James » nickname.
This was a fun way for LeBron to proclaim his royalty in front of the tens of thousands of fans who attended the big game.
