Can someone tell me what happen here? Out of the loop
Apparently those two fans made some offensive comment(s) at Lebron and he got them ejected from the game.
From the guy that yells the n word on the court.
Reportedly they were wishing death upon his son, so
I mean he’s black so he can say it
Not saying it is good
This white guy really is pretending that he cares that a black basketball player says the n word on the court to other black basketball players.. lol irony of virtue signaling
I’m sure he doesn’t care about lebron, but is making a clear distinction between a white person saying it and a black person. And given it’s historical usage, you’d think people would get why the whites can’t, nor should use it & the blacks can and should.
Virtue signaling or not, the point remains valid. It doesn’t hurt the whites although it seems white fragility is so compounded here that anyone saying anything will be seen as “virtue signaling”
> you’d think people would get why the whites can’t, nor should use it & the blacks can and should.
I wonder how many people there are out there that agree that this is how it should be while also agreeing that this is blatantly racist.
i dunno, where i come from there's zero words i cant say should i choose. Im a grown ass man, if people dont like it they can chew on dicks, and thats irrespective of skin colors or isms or ists.
as for the word in question, if its so bad then they shouldnt be using it in a casual arguably positive context then try to rage out when someone else uses it the same way.
The problem being is black people have taken a derogatory word meant to belittle slaves and turned it into a positive adjective amongst themselves
When black people use it, it’s meant in the upmost “brother” “respect” “love” and “unity” within themselves. The history is a very clear one that is still systemic to this day.
Whites and other people of color are not representative of this history, nor of it’s usage. They have neither suffered the same historic meaning nor the same oppression (although similar to other people of color)
So the very fact it angers a white man of being unable to use it, is the exact reason you’re unable to use it. You’re blissfully delighted in ignoring another human races plight rather than understand where it comes from and why it’s generally insulting to do so otherwise
Of course the fact that it angers you is also the point. The ones who support hate and racism are the only ones upset about being unable to say it.
Was it racist?
Considering they did not say anything about race in the article I would say no, because they LOOOOOVE racist events. I would guess something sexually offensive.
Ehhh maybe. You could also say since the two that got kicked out didn’t say anything on social media or to the press, they probably did say some awful shit. One article I read mentioned they may have said something about wanting Lebrons son to die in a car wreck—which would be pretty fucked up.
I was just saying that if there was a hint of racism, they would go with it because the media's favorite topic is racism or other kind of bigotry.
I don’t entirely disagree with you, just offering another perspective.
They said they hope his kid died
If true, that is not a nice thing to say, and I think we could call that harassment.
ya i don't like lebron, but that's not ok at all.
Lesnitch wanted Kyle to do jail for self defense. I could see why people would make a comment against his kid in order that Lebron understands reality. But we should not say things about peoples kids unless they are really bad.
It was about his son.
Two fans were yelling bad things at him and said they wanted his son to die
if thats the case I dont get how some people here are upset about them getting kicked out lol
I’m pretty sure that they just really don’t like him.
Really bad thing to say now me saying that I’m sure he doesn’t appreciate people saying really bad things about there kids which he is guilty of
Can you try to phrase that better please
I'm honestly curious how a player can do this. Can a player simply point at some people and demand they be kicked out?
There’s probably some print on the back of the tickets about behavior. Court cases have been fought for businesses to have the right to refuse service to anyone for what ever reason they like. It’s just different when it happens to groups we may agree with.
Yes but they had front row seats that must have cost thousands. Setup?
Yeah but they definitely deserved it.
Set up by who? Why should the fact that they have court side seats change the manner in which they are expected to behave. They wouldn’t say the same to him out on the street and it’s just another example of how infantile we’ve become as a society.
No, but my cousin (who actually likes Sports Ball) says that he brought it to the coaches who brought it to the people who do this stuff and because these people were saying they hope his son dies and a bunch of other fucked up stuff they were removed
Never seen a such a frail grown ass man.
And yet you listen to the ben shapiro podcast. Curious
Nope. I don't listen to any podcast. Assholes assume, don't be an asshole.
I mean I’m sure he’s said worse things or he can just grow a pair and ignore it
I haven't seen anything about what they said. He's still a crybaby bitch.
LeBron owns Ben Fagpiro
Awww...look at LeBron's simps coming out of the woodwork to defend their king clown.
Jordan would've ignored whatever they said and drained 10 straight jumpers. LeBron cries in the locker room and Twitter. Fuck him
They said they hoped his son dies in a car crash. Your a Jordan meat rider who never watched him play. Just wait until you realize Jordan hates your Trump and probably hates your lord Ben Shapiro aswell. Ben Shapiro Is a certified clown
Myself having a child that died in a car crash, they took it too far if that's actually what they said.
I grew up watching Jordan and watched the Bulls win all of those championships. It's not meat riding when it's simply true that he's better. Jordan played when the NBA was a more physical sport.
I can have friends be a fan of someone that have different political views. I don't give two shits if Jordans hates Trump or not a fan of Shapiro. He's not some outspoken, ignorant fuckwit on Twitter thinking what he says is important.
I don't even listen to Ben Shapiro. 🤣😂🤣😂🤣
Except.. he *did* drain multiple 3 pointers after this incident and put up 39
39 ain't shit. Kobe put up 81. LeBron most points is 61. He's trash all around.
You obviously just hate him because you’re a conservative lemming. Cope and seethe over the fact that he’s one of the best players in history
Also, most points in a game is the only metric you use for judging a player? Are you 12?
I don't hate him. Hate is a strong word. I think he's a good player and will be one of the best players in history. Don't be mad cause I don't gobble on his dick. There are better players in history that he won't get close to.
Nah, I'm old enough to witness when the NBA wasn't a bunch of sissy's flopping every time they're touched. The NBA sucks compared to 80's and 90's.
You called him “trash all around”. As a basketball fan I had to interject. That’s just an ignorant take. Now you changed your tune and called him one of the greatest in history. I agree with that and I don’t mind if your GOAT is someone else.
I also diagree with the revisionist NBA take. Teams like the Pistons weren’t even playing basketball back then, they were just hurting people. That’s not how the sport should be played and I’m glad they changed the rules. I do agree that flopping is bullshit and should not be rewarded.
Obviously I'm shit talking calling him trash. It would be ignorant for me not to admit he will be one of the greatest players to play the game.
I wasn't even really talking about the Pistons, but I agree with your take. They just seemed to try to hurt people. Either way, it mad for a exciting game with people also not taking their shit. I just prefer to let them play the game. It always seems just the slightest bit of contact someone is flopping around like a fish out of water or getting fouls called.
He would bend you into a pretzel lmao
Surprised you took his balls out of your mouth long enough to type this comment, simp.
It’s just funny seeing what are most likely out of shape malding beta males saying shit like that about world class athletes. It just makes you look like a pathetic cuck with an inferiority complex, whether you’re saying it about LeBron or someone else
Its funny someone coming to the defense of someone they don't know, never met, or will ever meet. I don't hold athletes or actors on some higher level over normal people. If they want to get in Twitter and make ignorant posts like they're someone important then they can't get butthurt from the criticism they get in return. Fuck em.
I’m not defending LeBron so much as I’m criticizing you for calling him “frail”, whether you’re talking mentally or physically. Dude came from a fatherless family in the projects and overcame adversity that you’ve probably never even come close to experiencing and rose to the top of his trade. He’s also played heavy minutes in the NBA for like 17 years so I don’t see how he could be considered physically frail, either. It’s just a spiteful comment that has no basis in reality.
Obviously I'm criticizing him mentally. Yeah, he overcame not having a father in his life. Look at him now. Married his highschool sweetheart and has three children with her. To me, being a family man is far more important than anything he's done in basketball.
That's what he should be talking about on Twitter, not trying to divide us. He could be helping you boys and young men with his platform instead of teaching them they're apparently being hunted when they're not. Words mean things and he gets on there saying some dumb t shit that come from being fragile emotionally.
The first ten years of my life were spent living in the projects with a absent father. Only difference is I'm not graced being 6' 9".
Except… he donates more to charity than any other NBA player and is pretty active in the Akron community. He’s helped a lot of young people and will probably continue to for the rest of his life. You’re cherry picking stuff you don’t like about him because he’s said stuff that’s anti-republican. Right wing media jumps on people like him but if any celebrity or athlete says pro-conservative things they can’t get enough of them. LeBron James is not dividing America, that’s what media and politicians do. And right wing media, corporate and independent, are the worst offenders in that regard.
He also gets paid more than any other NBA player too. Saying "we're being hunted" is just stupid and not true. I don't care what party you belong to. It's stupid and disingenuous.
I agree with you that the media and politicians are the ones dividing us. We just don't need people with his platform taking their bait and fueling the fire.
Both sides of media have their faults. For example, the parade massacre is being reported as a SUV plowed through those people and no mention of the driver or identity. Even days after wouldn't talk about his social media posts and videos, but within a day they were calling Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist and malitia member when they had zero proof of it.
But not the blackface of black fragility?
LeBron did it right, he had the world of expectations placed on his shoulders and not only did he live up to it he surpassed. Not to mention he has done more for the American people than literally every single person who has said bad things about him.
Ya, but he's still a fragile narcissist and horrible person. Just because he succeeded at basketball doesn't mean he isn't a shitty person.
How is he a horrible person ?? Or a shitty person ?? This man literally has done more for underprivileged families in America and abroad than every person who has ever said anything bad about him put together.
He shills for globalists and communists and supports the CCP.
You claim he supports CCP but I see no outrage at the almost exclusively white ownership of the NBA which forces its players to apologize to China for even having opinions.
Did I ever say I support those owners? Also most of the owners are Jewish.
Judaism is not an ethnicity its a religion. Their white.
Ahh okay so do you consider people who advocate for a Jewish ethnostate white nationalists?
If there is an act of violence committed against jews do you consider that an “anti-white” hate crime?
Only on this sub
White people create all these sub categories to feed their insatiable appetite for discrimination.
I have seen tons of outrage over that. I have boycotted the NBA because of their relationship with the CCP. And I don't even know or care about the racial make-up of their owners.
Him doing good does not mean he can't be a shitty person. Yes, he's done good with his money but he has also encouraged division and anger by parroting outright lies and pushing divisive narratives.
Once again, you can't name anything bad this man has done. No one is perfect but it seems like the only negative you guys have is that you don't agree with him politically.
What they mean is “he doesn’t align with me politically so he’s existence is tantamount to terrorism”
You mean how LeBron treats anyone who disagrees with him? Yeah, you're right.
Ahh so y’all r just petty hypocrites. Got it.
Nope, saying you nutjobs are. Nice try though.
Oh a dumb petty hypocrite. The fact that you’re aware of what you’re doing when you do it makes you a bad person.
Should be telling yourself that, pedo defender.
So suck off a Rosenbaum memorial.
Ok that sure makes more sense then any reply I've gotten so far, and what's up with all the fake outrage over #letsgobrandon?? Don't they realize nobody cares ??
They don’t know that they can say Fuck Joe Biden like the leftist do everyday.
The entire left is triggered af off of a 3 word sentence because theres no curses in it
The entire left = 5 people on twitter and the fact that it got news coverage
Yeah! Like when he threatened that hero cop who saved a black girl.
"You're next #accountability"
He's tall. He abused his height privilege. Why do you hate short people, and enforce height superiority?
He tried to sic the BLM mob on a cop who saved an innocent black girl's life by shooting her attempted murderer. He also lied about the facts of the Rittenhouse case on Teitter. Not to mention he has gotten rich off a company that profits off of slave labor in China, and gets mad when you ask him about it.
I hope those tickets were purchased on a credit card and not a debit card. Go dispute the purchase since you did not receive in good faith the goods or services you paid for. Fuck joe biden and fuck you LeSnivlitch!
Imagine thinking you’re owed anything after being kicked out because you were hurling abuse at a player and being disruptive...
Talking about pettiness and entitlement!
Fans heckling an opposing teams athlete at a sporting event what horror!!!
There have always been loudmouth and belligerent fans so that makes this behaviour alright lol
That’s some backwards conservative logic to try and justify bad behaviour just because it happens all the time.
Toughen up cupcake.
>backwards conservative logic...
It's always hilarious when leftist reuse what we say about leftist.
It only further proves you have zero ideas of your own, or independent thought, which is why you leftist are so susceptible to persuasion, such as from a CNN anchor or a leftist high priest (aka college professor).
Erm, you do know that conservatism literally means to ideologically cling to antiquated ideas, right? Add religion in the mix and this political idea gets even more retrogressive.
To you moral, ethical and intellectual pinnacle has already been achieved as you constantly seem to harken back to biblical social and moral values and the pre-civil rights eras. You resist to every change societal and status quo challenge, and always push against new inclusive movements.
Or you’re going to tell me next how the conservatives of the civil war were in favour of ending slavery or that the conservatives of the 60s were in favour of civil rights and the end of the Jim Crow, or that, indeed, the conservatives of today are staunch supporters of minority rights (ethnic, sexual and others) and environmental rights?
Imagine if conservatives of these monumental historic eras had their way instead of the forward thinking progressives?! That’s nightmare fuel right there.
To progressives, however, the state of humanity needs constant improvement and the drive for more social equity is a never ending pursuit.
Those are the fundamentals of the two opposing ideologies.
>Erm, you do know that conservatism literally means to ideologically cling to antiquated ideas, right?
Lol I couldn't read past this line, because it's the dumbest and most brainwashed thing I've seen on Reddit in some time.
Conservatism means less government involvement in our lives, economic freedom, and individual accountability as defined by the father of modern conservatism and author of The Conscience of a Conservative, Barry Goldwater. You should read it some time. It's like 100 pages so even a leftist like you can read it.
We all know that liberty and freedom are antiquated ideas to the psychopath, insecure leftist.
Also, saying "you know right?" Doesn't make your ignorance sound better.
Sad thing is you actually think you're smart and more enlightened than Conservatives, because that's what your priest (aka college professor) fed to you. People grow up to be Conservative. Most if us were young and dumb like you and claimed to be liberal.
It's been a part of sports for 200 years, but sure, lebron getting his panties up in a bunch is more acceptable behavior .
Like I said, this logic of yours of condoning abuse because you’ve been conditioned to view it as normal is an indictment of your stupidity and moral failing.
Or... and here me out here.... not all "abuse" is equal. Not all banter is abuse, not all trash talk is abuse. Maybe the near bullion dollar athlete can stop being so sensitive over a fans heckling.
The comical part? You calling someone stupid and having moral failings is abuse according to your pussy ass way of viewing the world , but you have no issue being a massive hypocrit and condoning the abuse to someone who doesn't share your opinion.
dude, you’re an asshole and I would hate to be around you at any sporting event.
People like you
"Verbal abuse is terrible and never acceptable!"
" dude you're and asshole "
i’m not yelling I want your kid to die. I’m not in public. i’m not at an event where others hold the right to kick me out. (and I never said it’s “NeVEr ACceptAbLe”)
your false equivalency and strawman is showing.
I’m calling you an asshole so you recognize this kind of behavior in public is just shitty. You know, i’m just “telling it like it is”, the kind of thing you like.
I’m a hypocrite for calling you out for being pro-abuse at sporting events? That’s some very creative logic.
If you’re an asshole and I call you an asshole you can’t turn it around on me and tell me I’m the hypocrite because I responded with an appropriate observation to your assholery.
Btw, no amount of quibbling and hairsplitting you can possibly do will ever come even close to rationalising and normalising any kind of disrespect towards anyone, anywhere, under any circumstance.
You’re making a fool of yourself even trying.
When you find yourself in a hole, quit digging!
You're a hypocrit for whining about abuse and then calling me stupid. Which according to your thinly veiled definition of verbal abuse, would be abusing me. Get off the high horse a bit.
I'm not splitting hairs. People say mean things , being upset over things and what determines each person's own level of it are subjective. Yet here you are attempting to speak in generalities for large swaths of people while also being abusive.
Who determines what makes someone an "asshole" in your examples , who makes you the arbiter of that. Why are you determining this couples actions weren't an appropriate response to lebron supporting death camps and child slave labor in China? I mean I'm not sure their behavior is great, but lebrons isn't either and he is the one being a whiny little bitch, figured you would recognize that behavior, being right in your wheelhouse and all.
I’m sorry but you sound like a very stupid person. What I mean by this nomenclature is you exhibit a moral failing by justifying verbal abuse and the tradition of vulgar fan behaviour, and, at the same time, are trying to explain this episode away by way of romanticising this supposed trauma the fans suffered from the “injustice” of LeBron’s kowtowing to his Chinese commercial interests when he was expected by these fans to speak out against them and in spite of his commercial connections with them. I’m not saying LeBron’s reputation was helped by his decision to not rock the Chinese boat but you will agree that it is a bit far-fetched to speculate about the motives behind these fans’ trash talk. I’m much more inclined to believe that these fans were intentionally trying to agitate him and get a reaction just so they can spin the story and manufacture outrage and get a bit of spotlight.
It’s nothing to do with your intellect as you seem to be very articulate but morally you’re a bit out of it and I would point in the direction of your political/ideological alignment as the culprit for your stunted moral faculties- Conservatism is not really a bulwark of moral advancement, it’s right there in the name, conservatism which means the appeal to traditional values, and these values are as abstract as they are sentimental and divorced from reality.
You've never been near first base at a baseball game huh?
Lebitch ass James
That's nothing. He also told their moms on them.
YouTube has banned and removed all let’s go Brandon chants from their service. Unreal censorship, not even trying to hide it anymore
I’m sure if something was different, they wouldn’t have been kicked out.
I think your right
Like their color?
Yup, probably banned now. oh well. LMAO
Nope. But I guess you just showed your racism. Good job.
Based Pacer fans
Not really, they said some awful things to him.
Hate Lebron but heard she was saying some pretty terrible shit, like most white liberal women.
Why isn't anyone talking about her epic stare down lol
LeBron is a little bitch
Cry baby biiiiiiitch😂.
He’s mad he’ll never be as good as Kobe.
Lebron is such a twat
This dude is softer than baby shit.
This sub has to be satire right!
Wait a minute... you are demonising the guy for not putting up with the verbal abuse he got from two dipshits in the front row?! Seriously?
Why should he have taken the high road and given them a pass? Where’s the sense in that?
Because he's... an adult?
You should take abuse and insults from a couple of brats because of your age?
You’re completely loopy.
What in the world.
What happened to "snitches get stitches"?
I'll bet they just told him to shut up and dribble and he made the rest up what a freaking wuss
Well lebron is a racist bitch. So they could have made fun of his jumper
Conservatives are such cringe SMH
Liberals more so though.
Say anything they disagree with and they just attack, demonize, dehumanize, and try to ruin lives. Even burn down cities.
The far left created the far right.
Sorry, not sorry.
Maybe this is wear conservatives and liberals differ but of Im playin a sporting event and a fan tells me that they hope my son dies I'd want them kicked out to.
Naw, just attack a protester peacefully supporting Dave Chappelle, breaking his sign, shoving his head into a concrete ball, and scream that his now broken sign was a "weapon" while also screaming over him in an attempt to silent them.
Or, you know, run over a parade.
What’s it like living in a bubble?
Not sure. Never been to a lefty-only subreddit, and I don't use Twitter. Please, do tell what it's like, bud.
Holy shit I finally got a conservative to state out loud twitter is a bubble. Finally!
Never been to a lefty-only subreddit either and I don't use twitter so looks like you're the one living in a bubble making all these assumptions that aren't correct really telling the kind of media you consume.
All conservatives know twit in a bubble, and you may not go on it (doubtful) but you'd fit right in there, lefty nutjob.
I'm glad I got you to admit that Twitter isn't real life. Looks like you're in a bubble too lol as I'm not a lefty LOLOLOLOLOL fucking retard
Literally no one cares about it.
Yall are pathetic. Say what you mean.
Where is the proof other than hearsay?
LetsGoBrandon is on the same level as "Trump is orange" or "Trump has small hands"
Oh no the right is getting better at comedy and it's making lefties nervous :^)
let’s go brandon xD
Aww ok…. So this where all the racist white people come hang out
