Lebron James Asks Fan To Be Respectful In His Taunts

Fans pay good money and should be allow to boo and taunt the opposing team players, but there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed.

Easy to say things as a fan you wouldn’t have the nerve to say face to face.

That should be the general rule, if you wouldn’t say it to the player’s face then don’t say it at all. Lebron had an issue with a Detroit Pistons’ fan and here is how he handle it.

With his two young sons sitting courtside, Miami Heat forward LeBron James made a personal plea to a taunting fan for decorum during the first quarter of Friday’s game against the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

“I don’t care what you say to me. I don’t give a [expletive] what you say,” James said to the fan. “But don’t be disrespectful.”

The fan had heckled James about his mother, using a Valentine’s Day reference.

Lebron can’t tell a fan to be respectful while cursing at him, sort of defeats the purpose.

I am assuming this had something to do with Delonte West or whatever the case would be, have a little respect. Just because they are athletes, doesn’t mean you have carte blanche to say whatever you want cause you are protected by being in the stands.

Don’t be a studio gangster.
