In a video published by ESPN on Sunday, Feb. 10, Tucker describes when LeBron James was a guest at his church in Los Angeles. According to the hilarious story, James and Magic Johnson sat in the front row, obstructing Tucker's view of the service.
"Get out the way. I can't see nothing, LeBron. And I try to look around him, Magic Johnson's on the other side. I can't see over him neither," Tucker recounted. "And I'm like, 'y'all know y'all tall why y'all sitting up in the front seat? And me and LeBron almost got into a fight."
Tucker then went on to describe a funny mid-service exchange between LeBron and himself that even Magic Johnson couldn't mediate.
"And Magic got into it like 'Come on, Chris he just got to LA man. Let him live... You ain't got to see the pastor, Chris,'" Tucker explained. "And I said 'Nah, you not gonna smooth talk me with your great attitude. It's just ridiculous."
Yet it seems that a higher power was watching over Tucker, as their conflict didn't go past a muffled inter-pew argument.
"I'm glad you're in church, but sit in the back row, man. You're too tall to be sitting in the front. That's all I'm complaining about."
