Being part of the big game means handling hecklers on a daily basis. Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James had to deal with a hackler during the game against the Washington Wizards. It was awkward and funny at the same time.
There were some fans in attendance and LeBron got into a thing with one of them.
One of the fans called LeBron “a big baby,” and the four-time NBA champion started crying like one. Just kidding. He was fake crying and onlookers had a really great fun.
The Lakers had a disappointing game and lost 107-116 to the Wizards. LeBron is treating his high-ankle sprain and has yet to return to the floor.
Anthony Davis encouraged players to do better and they may be playing a sense of desperation.
“We control our own destiny,” Davis told reporters on a postgame video conference, per ESPN. “So we have to start playing with a sense of desperation, even though we are in the playoffs as of right now. But we’re not that far off from being in play-in games. So we’ve got to play with a sense of desperation, as well.”
LeBron James has already had a heckler on his list
This Wizards fan wasn’t the only heckler LeBron had to deal with. Remember Juliana Carlos? The poor lady had to leave the game against the Atlanta Hawks in the fourth quarter. She yelled at LeBron and didn’t want to put on her facemask.
Carlos tried to explain the situation, but she only made it worse.
“So, I’m minding my own business and Chris has been a Hawks fan forever. He’s been watching the games for 10 years. Whatever, he has this issue with LeBron. I don’t have an issue with LeBron. I don’t give a f— about LeBron,” she says in the video, per Dave McMenamin of ESPN. “Anyway, I’m minding my own business, drinking my [beverage], having fun. All of the sudden, LeBron says something to my husband and I see this and I stand up and I go, ‘Don’t f—ing talk to my husband!’ And he looks at me and he goes, ‘Sit the f— down, bitch.’ And I go, ‘Don’t f—ing call me a bitch. You sit the f— down. Get the f— out of here. Don’t f—ing talk to my husband like that.’”
