Detroit fan to LeBron: ‘Is your mom going to Boston for Valentine’s Day?’
‘Is your mom going to Boston for Valentine’s Day?’” the heckler repeated, sounding both thrilled that he had an audience with LeBron and intimidated by the moment.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Those would be fighting words.
Yesterday, HoopsVibe News reported that Miami Heat superstar LeBron James warned a Detroit Pistons fan not to ‘be disrespectful’.
What the fan said to draw James’ ire was unknown. James, who has a fairly thick skin when on-court, was visibly shaken by by the incident.
Well, today we found out.
The fan referenced a rumor about James’ mother having an affair with former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Delonte West, who now plays for the Boston Celtics.
This line isn’t new to James. It may or may not bother him. However, his kids where at The Palace in Auburn Hills and he didn’t want them hearing rumors about their grandmother and West. So he stepped up.
(Audience discretion is advised.)
