LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers are yet to figure things out. Last night the Los Angeles Lakers lost once again, this time, to a fledgling New Orleans Pelicans team without their star player Zion Williamson. It was yet another poor showing from the Lakers, possibly one too many for fans of the Lakers.
Playing in front of their home crowd, the Lakers did not deliver the way fans in LA expect them to. And as a result, Lakers fans booed LeBron James and the Lakers. The Lakers are one of the most successful franchises in NBA history, and playing at this level with the amount of talent available to them is truly unacceptable. And the fans let their disappointment in them be heard.
But one fan may have taken it too far, as he began to heckle his team's players. One fan who was seated close to the court was heard heckling LeBron James and other players. LeBron was not in the mood to hear it, as he shut down the fan by telling him he knows nothing about basketball.
“What do you know about basketball other than the ball going in or not going in? Shut yo a** up.”
It appears that LeBron James was just as, if not more frustrated than the fans in the arena. And he was not going to take any kind of heckling from the fans lying down. Regardless of James' frustration, Lakers fans are not happy with him and the team for a while, voicing their frustration online after the game.
Lakers' owner Jeanie Buss even walked out of the game after sitting through their performance. Buss, who has been vocally positive about the Lakers this season, could not handle it anymore. Things continue to go from bad to worse for the Lakers this season.
