Others quickly recognized that Stevens was the same waitress who was knocked to the ground by James during a Trail Blazers-Lakers game back in December. The NBA star immediately helped her up and gave her a hug following the unintended contact.
“This is the same lady that Lebron knocked over a few months ago….she can’t catch a break this season!!! LMAO!!!” another person tweeted.
While some Twitter users suggested Stevens could potentially lose her job for the spill, most people, however, came to her defense.
“LISTEN major shout out to the court side server at the blazers game who just had the official knock her ENTIRE tray over – the server in me wanted to jump through my screen and help!! i love you so much whoever you are,” one person wrote.
“Courtside waitress at the blazers game it’s ok u didn’t knock the drinks go have a cig it will be ok,” another said.
Another Twitter user wrote: “Waitress in Portland who just had spill at #Pelicans #Blazers game is embarrassed no doubt, but I bet Top 10 waitress/[server] anyone would ever have if lucky enough to have her as a waitress/server @NBA.”
