LeBron James pushes fan who approached him during Lakers game and web reacts: ‘Hello, security?’ | sports

LeBron James, NBA star and Los Angeles Lakers athlete, faced an unusual situation during a match against the Oklahoma City Thunder held in the early hours of this Tuesday (16). While on the bench, the player pushed a fan who approached him even though he was not allowed to be there.

The game took place at the Crypto.com Arena and ended in a victory for the Lakers, the home team, by 112 to 105.

At first, James seemed confused. He had just put a sweater over his uniform, as shown in a video posted on Twitter/X, when the fan approached and said some unidentified words to him.

There was no movement on the part of arena security or the team, and Lebron lightly pushed the man after just a few seconds of interaction. Soon, employees approached and removed the fan from the area.

According to the website ClutchPoints, the man was expelled from the game.

On social media, the video was the subject of debate. Most fans did not show any discomfort with James’ attitude, who seemed focused on the game, but there was criticism for the security team.

“What was that? He thought he could just walk to King James? Hello, security?” one user wrote. “What the f*** was the security guard doing?” asked another. “You can’t just run towards a player while he’s playing. Total disrespect,” a third added.
