LeBron James calls fan who threw debris at his son during game ‘disrespectful’

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“I mean it’s just disrespectful,” he said. “And I mean it was just a little kid, too. I don’t know how old that little kid was. So, I don’t know if he learned it on his own learned it at home or whatever the case may be, but it’s just disrespectful.”James has been protective of his son, a burgeoning hoops prospect who has drawn no small amount of media attention while playing as a freshman for the Chatsworth private school. He has kept Bronny from doing media interviews during his first year on the team.He’s also a proud father, dropping in to several Sierra Canyon games already this season, including one in Columbus, Ohio, swinging through his home state on an off-day between games in Miami and Atlanta.Making the trip on a game day was a new wrinkle for James, who said he hoped during the commute that “the gods is with me,” but acknowledged that his family is his chief priority. After a 139-107 drubbing to the Boston Celtics, he said he felt comfortable about his decision.“My routine was broke today, but I could care less if I’m seeing my family, my wife and my daughter and my kids,” he said. “It was a unique opportunity for me to see my son play, live, that close to where I’m at. … This right here is all secondary when it comes to my family, so it doesn’t matter.” BOSTON — He’s the son of one of the most famous athletes in the world, but Bronny James is still just a kid.After seeing a video of a fan at the Hoophall Classic throwing something toward his son during an inbounds pass, that’s what LeBron James wanted to remind would-be hecklers at Sierra Canyon games.James was a spectator for the game Monday afternoon, driving 90 miles to Springfield, Mass., for the chance to see his 15-year-old son play in the 70-62 Trailblazers loss. But he didn’t realize until later that a young fan had been caught on camera throwing a small piece of apparent debris at Bronny as he was preparing to make an inbounds pass.The video quality of a tweet shared by James makes the item difficult to make out – commenters speculated that it was either a piece of popcorn or a ball of paper. But regardless, James, who said he didn’t see the video until he arrived back in Boston, wasn’t pleased. James said Bronny has gone through a lot as the son of a famous father, but that he deals with heckling well: “He’s better than his mom and dad for some of the things that he kind of lets off his shoulder.”It made James all the more disappointed that a fan, though young, had made the decision to throw something at his son.“I wonder how old that kid is – if he’s an age around Bronny’s age, or Bryce’s age,” he said. “And I would like to see him try that while he’s paying attention.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

It will pit two teams that know absolutely nothing about the other.Yet the two teams have a lot in common. They both have high-powered offenses led by a dominating quarterback. They have had their share of double-digit wins.And most of all, they share the desire to play the next week in the Class 1A eight-man Div. II State Championship in Newton.There really is no reason for the two teams to know one another. Axtell is east of Marysville, west of Sabetha, north of Manhattan and is close to the Nebraska State line. It is also very close to Baileyville,  a school that won the Class 1A-DII title in 2013, but won’t repeat this year because the school no longer exists.This is relatively new territory for the Eagles. The last time the school has been this far in the playoffs was in 2008, when it lost in the semifinals to Hanover. It hasn’t been to the playoffs since — until this year. It opened the playoffs with a 78-28 victory over Sylvan-Lucas then stunned the No. 1 team in the state Chetopa 42-34. It travels four hours and 34 minutes to Argonia hoping to eliminate the upstart Titans – who are in the semifinals for the first time in their two-year existence.Much like the Titans, Axtell comes into the game with a quarterback that has racked up incredible yardage this year. Colton Buessing has accumulated 2,316 all-purpose yards as a junior, 1,680 of those in the air. As opposed to Titan quarterback Alec McDaniel who has had 2,757 combined total yards – 1,359 yards rushing and 1,398 yards passing.“Our defense is going to have to be very disciplined,” said Luke Greenwood, Argonia-Attica co-head football coach. “We are going to have fill the gaps and keep careful eye on that backfield throughout the game.Defensively, they like to crowd the line of scrimmage and mix it up. In other words, they might be a lot like the Titans.This game could be a tit for tat battle with the score skyrocketing.  So what else is new?A&A have scored at least 50 points in all but one game this season, and has not allowed an opponent to score more than 40 points except one.In the two playoff games combined, A&A has outscored its opponents 138-48.“We have done a really good job lately of adjusting to other team’s defense,” Greenwood said. “Sometimes I’ll call a play and the opponent’s defense changes. Our boys have done a great job of adjusting on the fly. That is something they did not do very well at the beginning of the year.”It will be a cold one Friday night and with Argonia’s east-west field the hope is the wind won’t howl. It could be the great equalizer.“We’ve been doing plenty of practice outside this week,” Greenwood said. “So we should be ready for whatever the weather gives us.”This is going to be a big game for A&A so come early to get a seat – even if that means enduring the cold. Argonia last made the playoffs eight years, Attica last made it 16 years ago. This is new territory for every player on the field.“I knew at the beginning of the year we would have a good team,” Greenwood said. “Did I think we would be 11-0 and hosting a sub-state game? I probably would say no to that.”last_img read more
