Matthew Dellavedova was trying to be sweet, but LeBron James fans weren't going to let this one go through to the 'keeper.

Delly recently announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend Anna Schroeder, a volleyball player at the American college he attended, St Mary's, by calling his future wife the "best teammate I'll ever have".

Excuse me? Cleveland fans asked. What about "King" James, No. 23, the man who carried you back from a 3-1 deficit against a team with the best regular season record in NBA history to hand you a championship ring?

That feedback aside, it's been a pretty darn good year for Delly.

He's won a title with the Cleveland Cavaliers, signed a massive $51 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks and now he is to tie the knot. The only thing missing was some Rio silverware with the Boomers.
