LeBron James piled it on against the Indiana Pacers in a vintage performance on Wednesday night. Not only did the Los Angeles Lakers star leave fans in the away crowd with a loss, but he also had two courtside spectators ejected for going too far.

King James had to drag the referee all the way to the unruly fans in order to get them thrown out of the arena. It’s not clear what exactly they said to the Lakers star, but he was visibly irate during and after the game.
“There’s a difference between cheering on your home faithful…and then there’s moments where it goes outside the lines,” LeBron James said after the Lakers win. “When obscene gestures and language come into it — can’t be tolerated.”
LeBron didn’t want to get too specific with what nonsense the fans were spouting, but there’s a rumor going around on social media that it may have had something to do with his son Bronny. One fan claiming to be at the game said that they wished ill of the Lakers star’s son.
I heard they said, “I hope Bronny dies in a car accident.”
If so, that’s shitty and they deserve to be ejected.
To your point, I’m sure Lebron has heard all kinds of vile stuff in his years in the limelight.

While this is just hearsay at this point, if true it would definitely be understandable for LeBron James to react the way that he did. Here’s to hoping fans learn to separate themselves from the action on the court.
