The Lakers season up to this point has been awful to say the least. After four months of the season, the Los Angeles Lakers find themselves 27-33 and 9th in the West Conference. Things got worse last night,
In the middle of the Lakers’ game against the Pelicans, LeBron was heard responding to a fan in the crowd who appeared to be heckling him.
“Tell me one thing you know about basketball besides the ball going in … Shut your a** up,” he can be heard saying in the clip below.
The Los Angeles Lakers players were met with boos from fans hoping to see the team beat the Pelicans. In a post game interview, LeBron James had this to say.
“I don’t have answers for tonight.” He admitted that the team’s performance, from the eighth minute of the second quarter onwards, wasn’t up to standard. “Right now it’s about how we can get better today. … We’ve still got 10 road games in March, so it doesn’t get easier for us.”
He wasn’t the only Laker player to respond to jeers from the crowd on Sunday. In the same clip above, shared by Michael Morales on Instagram, Trevor Ariza could be heard calling someone in the crowd a “b****.” The heckler in that instance was later escorted out of the arena.
