Word to the wise: it may be best to heckle NBA players from behind a TV screen.
As the Cleveland Cavaliers faced off against the Golden State Warriors for the NBA Christmas games, one fan took her displeasure with LeBron James to the Oracle Arena. Seemingly making the attempt to slander the Cavs star by calling him a cry baby, James caught the woman in time for her to rethink her decision. Once being hit with his gaze, the woman proceeded to fall back:
Unfortunately for James, that would be his biggest win of the night, as the Warriors went on to defeat the Cavaliers 89-83, snipping their six-game winning streak. James scored a healthy 25 points, but it was not enough to take down Stephen Curry in the clutch and a powerhouse game by Draymond Green, who scored 22 points and snatched 15 rebounds. The Cavs star gave his team credit for a good defensive effort, according to NBA.com.
“We gave ourselves a chance,” James said. “If we play like that defensively, we’re going to be a very tough team to beat. Offensively, we just didn’t have it. No one had it.”
At least that fan can go home and talk smack to her family and friends…
