Jennifer Broadbent snapped a picture of the Cavs stars lounging aboard a yacht near Clifton Beach in Lakewood Sunday.

A night earlier, on Saturday, LeBron James was spotted hoisting the Larry O’Brien trophy into the air from a balcony at Alley Cat Oyster Bar in the Flats East Bank. Pictures posted by friends of his also showed the trophy as the centerpiece at their dinner table in a private room at the restaurant.

“We didn’t actually think he'd come out; I mean, it's LeBron James, one of the greatest players of all time, so when we actually saw him we were pumped and happy to see him,” said Matt Morgan, who recorded video of James hoisting the trophy into the air as fans cheered.

Pictures posted by friends of James on Instagram also showed the trophy as the centerpiece at their dinner table in a private room at the restaurant.

One was captioned “Our high school team will still whoop on any other high school team, any era. Bet something.”

Cell phone video recorded later by other fans showed James taking the trophy to FWD Day + Nightclub, where he and his crew partied in a VIP cabana.
