Found August 03, 2012 on That NBA Lottery Pick:

USA Olympic swimmer Lauren Perdue isn't exactly a household name at this point but she's become one on the Internet since turning down a LeBron James dinner invite.

We'll let the folks over at Global Gazette give you the details:
Just before the Games began, she tweeted, "Lebron James just invited me to dinner...Um wuuuutttt?!?"

"He was kind of joking," Perdue said. "But he was basically like, 'Would you like to come eat with me at the dining hall?' And I said, 'Um, I'm sorry, I have a curfew.'"
Sadly, even getting that elusive championship can't score LeBron James a dinner date.
