LeBron James received an unusual request from an ailing young fan Wednesday when the Cavaliers were visiting Cleveland Clinic.

Lonzo Ball and the Los Angeles Lakers were set to make their first visit to Cleveland on Thursday, and the young fan wanted James to show the rookie who's king.

"Can you dunk on Lonzo for me?" the boy, named Andrew, asked.

LeBron laughed, raised his hand to meet Andrew's and said, "I got you."

Then, not wanting to disappoint, James added, "He might not be in my way. Once he sees I'm about to take off, he might move out the way."

James finished with 25 points Thursday, including four dunks, though none of the dunks came with Ball defending him. The Cavs won 121-112.
