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?

@matthewdelly yeah but she didn't bring you back from a 3-1 deficit, Lebron did that— LetMeBeGreat (@jublue31) September 11, 2016
@matthewdelly don't act like lebron didn't bring you back from a 3-1 deficit against the 73-9 warriors— Giovanni Paliotti (@wazzguccii) September 12, 2016
@matthewdelly She's not a better team mate then Lebron tbh— me (@Fifa_Bargains24) September 12, 2016
@matthewdelly not true. LeBron got YOU a ring— Zo (@real_zotorious) September 11, 2016
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.
