They look like a couple kids who have never earned anything in their life. I'm guessing their parents paid for those seats.

Yeah he's heard much worse than that and never had a fan ejected before, that we know of. This was bad.

If what they said about Bronny is true, then they deserved the toss. I'm curious, has a player ever chucked the ball at a fan's face due to them saying some vile stuff before lol? Just seems nuts that someone hasn't lost their cool in 75 years.

I mean Russ threatened to kill a guy and his wife a couple seasons ago. Whether you believe it was justified or not, it would seem he lost his cool there.

Then there was that whole Malice in the Palace thing.

Vernon Maxwell also punched a fan in the 90s. If what was alleged the fan said was true, I won't blame him for it, but he did punch a fan.

That's absolutely untrue. Any player can do it. And have.

I find it hard to believe the people around her wouldn't be clapping when they threw her out if she was saying vile things about Bronny. Indy is known for good fans.

It's very dangerous to trust random Reddit posts like some are doing in this thread....

Yet we're suppose to trust you that it was probably something innocent and LeBron made a big deal about nothing?


I'm just giving my opinion. I don't believe random Reddit posts without corroborating evidence


Skepticism is good. Nobody should assume some reddit rando is telling the truth about anything. Asses out of you and me, and all of that. But do you not grasp you're doing pretty much the same thing here?

It's most likely something innocent along those lines and he threw a temper tantrum.


Why is that "most likely?" He's in the middle of overtime in what has been an extremely competitive game. He's been the focal point of opposing fans going back to his freshman or sophomore year in high school. He has, almost quite literally, heard it all.

Maybe they really were teasing him about his bald spot, or that he has a tiny dick, or whatever. Maybe he did lose his cool over something innocuous. Stranger things have happened.

But given experience and track record, and the fact that he usually seems to enjoy bantering with fans -- a big reason he was bummed to miss the New York game -- that is absolutely not "most likely" what happened.

Id say that more of a You Problem. You personally probably catch a lot of **** because you wear a Lebron jersey in a sea full of Blue and Gold. People probably the said the same to you when you rocked your Miami jersey too.

Lol. They don’t yell at me, they yell at the players. I don’t wear LeBron apparel to games that he’s not even playing in. And the things they say certainly wouldn’t pass the censors on this website. I don’t even know why you’re upset here.

Lebron has a history of being very thin skinned so nothing would surprise me

I heard the female said something about LeBron's son. And the male was making "obscene" gestures at him. But you know the king starts whining because he's a whining pain the back side and the fans get the boot.

LBJ is a dirty player and he's sneaky about it. I'm sick of his whining I'm asking for an LBJ retirement for Christmas.

Good on LeBron, nobody should have to hear that type of crap screamed at them. If someone on the street yelled that to me unprovoked we’re fighting right then and there. It must have taken a lot to restrain himself and not punch that bitch in the head.

It doesn’t taken any effort to be a good human being, yet here we are.

Know your history. Vernon Maxwell wemt inyo the stands after a fan who heckled his dead daughter.

If this is directed towards me I already said they probably deserved to be kicked out . I have no issues with that you :clown: . I do have an issue with a poster painting a fan base as "extremely nasty" bc of 2 **** people and some anecdotal evidence smh

Because, when it's done well, it's extremely fun. There was a well-known Bullets fan back in the day who was renowned for his great heckling from behind the opposing bench, including reading excerpts of the Jordan Rules to the Bulls when they were in town. That's A-plus. (Even they were laughing.) I remember sitting in earshot of a guy who absolutely murdered ML Carr for all four quarters when he was in the process of coaching the Celtics to a 15-win season; it clearly got under his skin and it was glorious. And the converse is true. I was at another game where Kobe got into it with a couple, and by the end of the night they were the ones who were pissed off.

Those are exceptions to the rule. Usually it's "you suck" and other low-IQ stuff. But when somebody is putting some effort and intelligence into it, it can be great.

The rumor is they made threats against his son. I can understand him not wanting to give more attention that.
