This Warriors fan called LeBron James a crybaby during the Christmas Day matchup and was caught on tape. And I’m guessing she now regrets it. But should she have reacted differently?
The Golden State Warriors edged out the Cleveland Cavaliers on Christmas Day in an NBA Finals rematch. But one Warriors fan was caught gloating by LeBron James himself when she motioned “crybaby” to one of the best players in the game.
But when she was caught, she quickly stopped, looked down and wanted nothing to do with the situation.
When I first saw this video, I laughed. Because most fans have been in a situation where you’ve poked fun at an opposing team. I know I have.
But if you have enough bravery to call the best basketball player in the world a crybaby when you’re sitting courtside, perhaps you should own it instead of immediately cowering?
We’ll never know what we’d do in a situation like that until we’re put in it. But I like to think if Marcus Mariota caught me calling him trash during a game, I’d be the first to yell, “YEAH, I SAID IT.”
