If this is true, they deserved not just to be kicked out of the game but banned for life from all NBA games.
For LeBron to have that type of reaction, you knew it had to be something serious. Either racially or family motivated.
It seems it was the latter.
“When obscene gestures and language come into it, (it) can’t be tolerated,” James told reporters. “There’s a difference from cheering for your team and not wanting the other team to win and things I would never say to a fan and they shouldn’t say to me.”
James, who finished with 39 points, did not specify what the fans — who appeared to be a couple — said to him. One fan, who alleged to be sitting near the two, provided some apparent insight.
With 2:29 left in overtime, James pointed at the two fans and told the referee: “This one right f—king here!”
According to someone who claimed to be close to the couple that was ejected, they routinely told LeBron they hoped his oldest son Bronny died in a car accident.
They also allegedly called Bronny a b*tch while doing chicken chirping sounds at LeBron.
I have always been very clear on what I think about trash talk when it comes to fans. You can say what you want about their game on the court and boo to your voice is hoarse, but family is off-limits.
You should never talk about someone’s kids or family. You should never make it personal or racial. You would never say anything like this to LeBron in the street, so why would you say it in the stands.
Those comments, if true, are as ugly as the woman’s face.
The NBA should make a statement that these types of fans will not be tolerated or welcomed at games.
Flip the pages for LeBron, getting them thrown out and the fan next to them explaining what happened.
