LeBron James is one of the great heroes of Ohio, his home state. The forward has always bragged about his birthplace, he gave Cleveland his first and only NBA ring to date and is very involved with the community he has helped in different ways since he became elite. of basketball. However, there are those who still do not forgive his departure to the Miami Heat in 2010 and later to the Lakers in 2018.
It is the case of the manager of the Cavs who during the last visit of the Lakers dared to make fun of LeBron for missing the last shot of the third quarter. An action that awakened the murderous side of James, who responded with 21 points in the last quarter, passing over the Cleveland team: “I know who he is. He is part of the board. He was really excited by my failure. The good thing for him I only come here once a season. “
The manager of the Cavaliers, apparently, was not the only one to berate LeBron James during the last game against the Lakers. A fan (Cleveland already allows the presence of fans in the stands) appeared with several jerseys on which he had written offensive messages against the four-time NBA MVP. A hobbyist who ended up getting kicked out of Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse.
The 49-year-old subject occupied one of the seats on the lower levels behind one of the baskets and was identified by several employees of the franchise, who notified members of the private security of the compound that he was wearing several shirts with offensive messages towards Jamescomo “LeBron is a racist”, “LeBron is a narcissist” or “Gloria [Lebron’s mother] is leaving with West” in reference to the rumor about an old relationship between Gloria James and Delonte West, LeBron’s former teammate on the Cavs.
The individual in question resisted leaving the premises when the security members intervened and even beat one of them before trying to return to her seat. Only when private security threatened to call the police did he agree to leave the Cavs’ pavilion.
The perfect match that makes Jarrett Allen history
Very rarely in the NBA it happens that a player shoots more than seven or eight shots from the field and ends up with 100% effectiveness. Much less, if this player achieves 25 or more points and 15 or more rebounds. So few times has this happened in history that only eight players have signed it. Jarrett Allen is the eighth passenger of this select club.
And it is that the Cavs player became the eighth player in history who achieved at least 25 points and 15 rebounds without missing a single field goal. Allen finished with 11 of 11 shooting from two to accumulate 26 points and 17 rebounds, in addition to putting up three blocks. His only statistical blur was on the free throw: 4 of 7. Well that, and that his team lost to the Thunder, 101-117.
Jarrett Allen joins a prestigious club in which, before him, players like Dwight Howard and Dikembe Mutombo joined, or legends like Calvin Natt, Mitch Kupchak, Wes Unseld, Walt Bellamy and Wilt Chamberlain, the latter did so in seven times.
Jarrett Allen is averaging 13 points, 9.3 rebounds and 67.2% shooting for two for the Cavs this season, meaning that to be part of such a cast of players he had to considerably improve his numbers against Oklahoma.
