LeBron: Heckler incident 'wasn't huge deal'

Posted on: February 13, 2011 12:36 pm
 
BOSTON – LeBron James said Sunday his verbal altercation with a heckler in Auburn Hills, Mich., “wasn’t a huge deal,” and that he simply reacted the way anyone else would have. 

“I said what I had to say and I moved on,” James said before the Heat played the Celtics. “I didn’t stay on him. I just said what I had to say just like any normal person would if they felt like they’ve been disrespected and moved on. That’s all I did.” 

James confronted the heckler during the Heat’s 106-92 victory over the Pistons – Miami’s eighth straight. Reports indicated the heckler said something about James’ mother, Gloria, and that James responded with something to the effect, “Don’t say anything about my family. Be respectful or we’re going to have a problem.” 

Our Eye on Basketball blog has video of the incident here

“There’s 20,000 people-plus in the arena,” James said. “You can’t single out everyone; that would be a waste of time trying to do that. You understand that you go out there to play the game of basketball and fans are going to be fans.” 

James said he’s faced more heckling than he expected back in July when he made the decision to leave Cleveland and team up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. 

“I understood the situation I was getting myself into, changing teams and locations and changing scenery,” James said. “I understood that a lot of people didn’t like what we did, like what I did and there were going to be some hateful people.” 

Hateful, and stupid, too.

oh, yeah. i almost forgot. about lulu being mvp. the player who would most be missed by his team if they lost him. Rajon Rondo. the real mvp candidate. not lulu. lulu is a fraud.

lebron plays like a girl. he is Lu Lu Bron to me. he pouts. his teams choke while he pouts. remember, he quit in the playoffs against the celtics. he just stood around pouting. the heat will never win it with him on the team.

LeBron is just a "normal" multi-millionaire celebrity athlethe like you and me, who is trying to keep a "normal" situation like his multi-millionaire, bi-polar, guntoting teammate that sleeps with his mom, a private matter.  Like any of us millionaire bloggers would want similar stories about our personal lives aired.

Come on everyone, let him collect his billions from us and never question or criticize him.  Only praise and pay the man, like the "normal"guy he is.  Jeesh already.

For crying out loud, Berger, stop wasting internet kilobytes sucking up to LeBron James' ass. So a hecker said something? Big freaking deal. I'm 100% positive anyone who's anyone in the NBA has had hecklers say rude crap. And most of them just ignore it. Because they're not idiots who bother to deal with the crowd of morons. You think Kobe Bryant doesn't get heckled? Or Kevin Garnett? Or Tim Duncan? Etc.

Be a LeBron apologist somewhere else and write something interesting if CBS is actually going to give you a paycheck.

It probably does hurt to be reminded every day that your mom bangs Delonte West all the time

antoine walker? that will never happen. As douchebaggy as he is, he's still by far the best player in the NBA.
