Following his decision to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James teased a potential appearance at a Blaze Pizza outpost in Culver City, California on Twitter.

This sent many Lakers fans into a frenzy and had them line up and wait to meet LeBron outside of Blaze Pizza. Less than 24 hours after James hinted he could make an appearance at the pizza chain he’s poured money into as an investor, Purple and Gold faithful flooded the Culver City location:

Fans flocked and believed LeBron would be at Blaze from 2pm-5pm, but it turns out King James did not appear to his own Pizza Party.
LeBron will not be showing up for the Blaze Pizza party here, an employee just announced.

At least Lakers fans will have 41 regular-season games at Staples Center to see him.
Hundreds of Lakers fans are waiting outside of Blaze Pizza hoping to see LeBron…
