i think he has to. a precedent has been set in the artest situation. stern would look like the greasiest commish ever if he wasn't even close to being consistent with such a blatant violation of the rules.

It's LeBron's kids.



And let me just get this straight. Sorry if I sound like an idiot, but the fan was talking about Delonte West right? I'm wondering because no one has said his name in this entire thread. Or am I wrong?

you gotta learn how to be deaf, fans get loco down there. Ignore, and prove it with the ball. That shut's em up quick. You cannot confront fans, that just adds a notch onto they're freaky insulting cap.

I love how the fan crosses every line when it comes to taste and appropriateness in his heckling and then has the audacity to complain about his kids having to hear a swear word. What a weasely little shitface hahaha.

They're both wrong, but LBJ is absolutely wrong for engaging with him.... it's a mom joke.... get over it. Just because it might be a relevant question, LBJ seemed to better handle what happened in Cleveland. Is anyone saying this was worse? It's his job to be professional and ignore it.... what was he really going to do, threaten to beat him up? Get over yourself Lebron.

huh? he asked the fan politely he swore but he didn't swear at him. lebron might not be the most likable person but come on there is no way this is his fault, and what do you mean by get over yourself lebron seems like you just dislike the guy cuz clearly things could've been much much worse and he held his tempure in check.

huh? You think that is keeping his temper in check? Maybe I just have higher standards of what being professional is. It has nothing to do with it being Lebron. But good on you.

wow he's a basketball player not a 3rd grade teacher at a catcholic school, did u expect him to just smile and walk away? If he lashed out on the media after the game or made a comment about the fan to the media thats a different story, he did nothing unprofessional.

I disagree... he's more than a basketball player... it's ok if you disagree. The guy has been at the forefront of the NBA for years and there were better ways to go about it. I didn't expect him to smile, but yes to walk away... why engage an idiot fan? (don't answer that, it's rhetorical)

I can see the logic in your point.

LeBron is probably the most hated guy around the league, and probably got way worse in other arenas.

I remember that someone made a good point about the issue. He compared the situation to a recent incident when Jared Sullinger got spat on by a fan. Sulligner, an 18-year-old freshman, swallowed his pride and walked away from the incident. He could have retaliated, but had enough self-control not to.

I'm not condoning what the fan did at all. He is the instigator of the situation, and deserves every bit if not more blame than LeBron. But LeBron, who's been in the NBA business in 6 years should have just walked away and let courtside security handle the issue.

true...I think this may have been brought up before by fans of opposing teams and Lebron finally got tired of hearing it, I'm sure a couple hundred in cleveland might've mentioned it lol
