By NewsCore – LeBron James faced down and called out a heckling fan who insulted his mother during the Miami Heat’s 106-92 win over the Detroit Pistons, the Miami Herald reported Saturday.
Amid regular taunts from behind the Heat bench at the end of the first quarter, a front-row Pistons fan taunted, “Is your mom going to Boston for Valentine’s Day?”
After hearing the unwelcome comments, James made his way toward the scorer’s table to send his own message back.
“I don’t care what you say to me. I don’t give a [expletive] what you say,” James told the fan, with the comments picked up by television microphones. “But don’t be disrespectful.”
The fan was then officially silenced after receiving a warning from Detroit security staff.
