Why LeBron James drove ‘obscene’ Pacers fans out of the game


LeBron James had his reasons.

The Lakers star explained Wednesday why he threw out two Pacers fans in overtime for his team’s 126-116 win over Indiana, including a clutch 3-pointer that helped them win.

“When obscene gestures and language come into it, (it) is not tolerated,” James told reporters. “There’s a difference between cheering on your team and not wanting to win the other team and I never tell the fans and they shouldn’t tell me.”

James, who finished with 39 points, did not specify what fans – who appeared in pairs – told him. One fan accused him of sitting next to the two. Provided some clear insight.

With 2:29 remaining in overtime, James showed the two fans and told the referee: “He’s the right f-king here!”

The woman who got the shoe shed some fake tears and made a dirty face on the way to the exit, though there were no other objections from the bad-mouth couple.

James was suspended from the Lakers ‘one-game suspension for the Knicks on Tuesday night for beating the Pistons’ Isaiah Stewart in Sunday’s bloody melee in Detroit.

This is not the first time James has thrown fans out of the arena. Last season, James threw four fans out of the game in Atlanta. One of the fans, Juliana Carlos, continued her James hatred on a curse rant on Instagram. This earned her the nickname “Courtside Karen”. Carlos finally deleted her Instagram account as a backlash mount.

There have been no reports of the Pacers couple taking their grip on social media.
