No playoffs? No problem!
LeBron James was partying overtime in Miami over the weekend with his hapless LA Lakers out of the NBA playoffs — and even rumors he could be traded.
A source told us that James was spotted out nightly during the celebrity-packed Miami Grand Prix weekend. We hear that when the lights came on at one bash, James was even spotted grabbing some bottles of his own tequila brand, presumably to keep things going after-hours.
Spies told us that James was at Carbone Beach “four nights in a row” — including Sunday night when rap great Nas played the venue.
Said a source : “Lebron was definitely in Miami looking to party… on Saturday night when the lights came up [at Carbone]he was pulling bottles of his own tequila out of the bar and walking out with it.”
James is a backer of the high-end tequila brand Lobos 1707.
“People couldn’t believe he was at Carbone four nights in a row,” a source told us. He’s also good pals with celebrity chef Mario Carbone and frequents his eateries often.
Reports have said that James could be traded after the Lakers’ woeful season. He’s up for a contract extension Aug. 4.
Page Six previously reported that the NBA star was at the Carbone venue on Sunday along with newlyweds Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz, Jamie Foxx, Lindsey Vonn, Kevin Love, Busta Rhymes, DJ Khaled, Rich Paul, Meek Mill, Timbaland and more.
A source said that on another night at Carbone: “LeBron was in a really great mood. He was literally the life of the party… He took a ton of pictures with people and moved around the room. He was the happiest person in the world. Like, really f–king happy.”
We hear that Khaled was at the surprise Nas show “walking around smoking a cigar in a white suit.”
On Friday night, James was seen at Carbone hanging with David Beckham and James Corden.
On Sunday night, James was also seen at GALA Miami along with stars including Jamie Foxx and Meek Mill, who we hear was party-hopping in a purple Rolls-Royce convertible.
We also hear that Foxx performed alongside Tyga at for an “F1 OAK” party at XXIII Club on Friday. We’re told when Foxx was asked about his friend Dave Chapelle — who was recently accosted onstage at the Hollywood Bowl, where Foxx helped fend off the attacker — Foxx said, “My friend was in trouble and I had his back. But tonight’s all about love and having fun. Let’s get our party on!”
Also at the club were Scott Storch, Jonathan Cheban, Logan Paul and UFC champ Georges St-Pierre who spent $10,000 in liquor and tipped an additional $2,000.
Over at SLS Southbeach, “Breaking Bad” stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul served their Dos Hombres mezcal for guests.
A rep for James didn’t immediately get back to us.
