Cleveland Cavaliers small forward LeBron James has never been known for his trash-talking. Sure, he’s been seen handing out some harsh words to opposing players every now and again, but being the role model he is, and him trying to protect his public image, he’s never been one to chat all game long.
But in the Cavs’ 113-91 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Monday, James was filmed dishing out some verbal punishment to a fan sitting near the Cleveland bench. Have a look:
LeBron stays cool, calm and collected as the heckler — a man going by the name of Abdul Razick, who actually owns an Instagram account called “@chicagos_heckler” — tells LeBron to stop crying, and asks where Kyrie and Derrick Rose are, suggesting James runs his point guards off his team.
James retorts with “I hope that ain’t your girl next to you because she’s filming me. Bum.” Who else did LeBron call a bum recently? Oh yeah, that’s right, Donald Trump.
Razick has made something of a hobby out of heckling players when they come to Chi-Town, also posting videos to his Instagram of himself heckling Hassan Whiteside of the Heat, OG Anunoby of the Raptors, and even his own team’s head coach, Fred Hoiberg.
His heckling days may come to an end very soon though, as his video with James went viral, and the majority of people just laughed at how quickly he was shut down by James.
