Profane LeBron James heckler was kicked out of Lakers-Cavs game
After fulfilling his promise and winning a title for the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James has been received warmly in his returns to Cleveland ever since leaving the team.
But on Monday’s game between the Lakers and Cavaliers, one fan was kicked out of the arena after holding up T-shirts and signs with offensive messages directed at James. Per TMZ Sports, the fan, a 49-year-old man, shouted profanities and held up shirts with offensive messages toward James during the game between Los Angeles and Cleveland.
According to the report, it was Cavaliers players and employees, including general manager Koby Altman, who reported the fan to the arena security. Some of the messages on the shirts called James a narcissist and a racist, while also making a reference to his mother Gloria.
Later on, even when he asked to leave the arena for his obscene shirts and messages, the fan was still reportedly combative with the security, and it took several minutes before he was eventually removed from the playing venue.
Despite the incident, however, Cleveland.com reports that no charges were filed against the fan. Unfortunately for him, however, he missed an all-time great performance by the four-time NBA champion. In his yearly homecoming, James finished with a season-high 46 points, eight rebounds, and six assists in 38 minutes of play, helping the Lakers to a 115-108 win over his former team.
