Olympian Lauren Perdue is one of America's top swimmers, but she's making even more based on some Tweets she sent out - about LeBron James.

Just before the Olympics, Perdue, who competes today in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay, wrote, "Lebron James just invited me to dinner... Um wuuuutttt?!?"

Around that time, this photo showed up on Perdue's Instagram account. That is most definitely LeBron James, NBA champion and Team USA member:

Lauren Perdue and LeBron James

Lauren told the Charlotte Observer today that before the Games began, the "Dream Team" hung out with the swimmers at a USA Olympic function.

At that point, LeBron did indeed invite Perdue to dinner.

"He was kind of joking," she said. "But he was basically like, 'Would you like to eat with me at the dining hall?' And I said, 'Um, I'm sorry, I have a curfew.'"

"So I turned [LeBron] down, yeah."

While unexpected, the request seems harmless enough, and it's unfair to assume any sleazy intent by LeBron, who is engaged to Savannah Brinson.

It's just the dining hall, a very public place. Don't expect him in Kobe's doghouse anytime soon ... unless Savannah is taking cues from Vanessa Bryant.

Poor John Lucas III.

LeBron James' drunk over him was so insane in the first quarter of the Miami Heat's win over the Chicago Bulls Sunday that the defender became an instant trend in the Twitter-verse. He may end up on a poster someday, too ... though not in a good way.

In one of the most ridiculous alley-oops you will ever see - no small feat for the human highlight reel - Dwyane Wade threw a lob to LeBron, who literally JUMPED OVER LUCAS, throwing it down with relative ease no less.
