Woops, well there goes his story. Instead, James pipes on about the fact that the kid celebrity is actually in town, and what a shame it is that the folks in Fresno won't get a chance to see the league's second-most famous player after David Beckham-both for the sake of attendance and for the fact that not much happens in Fresno.
