    He’ll probably get suspended for that.

    Kinda of crazy to think after all this “talent” we signed this summer, none of them come close to replicating what the elder statesmen LeBron can still do.

    i think we pretty much all expected them to be around .500 after 20 games

    those OKC losses will come back to haunt them

    It’s the bad habits they are forming now that worry me.
    This team acts like they already have developed the switch they can turn on and start blowing teams out.
    I’m just looking for consistent effort on D from every guy on the floor. Is that really too much to ask?
    I don’t think it is.

    LeKaren got fans thrown out for hurting his fee fees. When does his contract expire? And when is he going to stop dribbling up and taking a 3 without anyone else touching the ball on offense?

    Never liked him. Never will.

    Buying a ticket to a game doesn’t give you license to shout whatever the hell you want at the players, like they’re some kind of circus animals or something. These are some of the rumors out there of what it was, and if it’s true the fans took it too far, and that’s on them, they should show some class or at least some human decency, it a game. Going off how LeBron reacted I imagine even if it weren’t this specifically it must have been pretty bad, I don’t remember seeing LeBron ever do this before, but I know Westbrook has, these guys don’t have to put up with that nonsense, there’s a line.

    ^^^^ I've had worse said to me online, in a bar, on a basketball court, etc. I never had the person removed. But I guess I'm not as sensitive as LeKaren, who has video of him getting dunked on taken from a kid, fans removed, and tried to have ESPN reporter fired for joking about his Boys Club / Miami decision, etc, etc.

    In the words of Kobe Bryant, "no fan ever blocked my shot "

    LeKaren is a sensitive prima donna and I'm beyond sick of his act. I honestly wish he never signed with us.

    I agree with the first part. But... championships count, so I'll survive this.

    He was absolutely right to have them ejected. Having tickets does not mean they can behave like that. Wishing his kids to die? Oh no, we're not going to have that.

    I'll also say that I loved the long threes. Kobe would hit clutch shots without anyone else touching the ball, shooting over multiple defenders. I loved each one of those shots. Sure, he shot us out of some games too, but that's alright. I like having a clutch player on my team who can just take over and dominate when necessary.

    He would have had to come to games with a national guard platoon in the 80s.

    ah yes, the god awful "athletes need to have tougher skin and just take everything people say to them!" take. i'm sure all the people who think that way would have no problem with someone coming into their workplace and wishing death upon them/their families?

    and anyone who says they wished lebron never signed with the lakers isn't an actual lakers fan. i mean, unless you prefer the lakers be competing for the 10th seed with the likes of lonzo and ingram. lebron literally saved this franchise from further mediocrity and you have people out there saying they hate it. incredible. i highly suggest those people root for a team like the t-wolves or hornets where competing for the 10th seed happens every year

    Love him or hate him, it’s simply incredible what this guy can still do on the court after all the mileage.

    You don't get to tell people who is a real fan and who isn't. EDIT

    Let’s not get personal Zen

    so wishing for mediocrity instead of a title is being a real fan?

    that's a good one my man. never heard of a real fan who wants their team to lose

    Seriously? You've had worse said to you than for your kids to die? And he's "sensitive" because he took offence at that and had those a******s removed? Dude...
