‘Royal Shutdown’ Outside Cavs-Nets Game Greets William And Kate, But Did They See It?
While LeBron was breaking royal protocol by hugging the Duchess of Cambridge inside the Barclays Center on Monday night, here's what was going on outside:
One of the largest "die-ins" was staged on the street outside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn during Cleveland's 110-88 win over the Nets. We presume that William and Kate were shielded from the goings-on by the unwashed masses. But wouldn't it have been great if they had left their motorcade and laid down with the protesters?

Some protesters called for the royal couple to join the protests. They apparently had other plans, however, deigning to stay inside while cops cleaned up the plaza near the transit hub. An NYPD spokesperson said on Tuesday that three demonstrators and been arrested.

Not content with their actions outside of Barclays, the protesters branched off to a nearby Target store and took that over, occupying the escalators.
