The USA Basketball squad took a stroll through the Olympic village to meet the other athletes last week before the games got going.At one point, the guys met members of the US swim team.

Lauren Perdue got a chance to take a picture with LeBron James (right) and shortly afterward tweeted, “Lebron James just invited me to dinner… Um wuuuutttt?!?”

Unfortunately, Perdue had to turn down Bron Bron’s generous offer.

The reason?

Well, here’s what Perdue told the Charlotte Oberserver’s Scott Fowler (via Fourth-Place Medal, emphasis ours):

“He was kind of joking 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. So I turned that one down, yeah.

Better luck next time, dude.
