LeBron James Does Not Play Nice With Wizards Fan, According To Report

Apparently, it wasn't enough for LeBron James and his Miami Heat teammates to kick the Washington Wizards, ahem, butts 106-89 on Friday night at the Verizon Center. It appears the Heat star also had a run-in with a Wizards fan, and graciously offered to kick that fans, ahem, behind. Local NBC writer Sarah Kogod witnessed the interaction and did some following up with the fan. A full breakdown of the LeBron/Wizards fan exchange, from a series of Kogod's tweets, is after the jump.

Wanted to give Heat PR time to comment on the LeBron fan altercation. I'll update you if they end up doing so, but here's the story...

...I saw a Wizards fan and LeBron in a heated conversation on the sideline during the game Friday night. I spoke to the fan and got his side...

...LeBron was waiting alone in the backcourt when fan Bob Moore made a comment to LeBron about Delonte West and LeBron's mom...

...Accrdng to Moore, LeBron said "The only reason you talk shit is because you know I can't come off the court right now and beat your ass"...

...Also according to Moore, LeBron continued "But if I had a free pass, I'd kick your ass right now."...

...Moore replied "I'm right here baby. Let's go" before security stepped in.

I have no idea why LeBron would interact with a heckling fan. I mean, this must happen to him in almost every arena. It's hard to say just ignore the person, but seriously, ignore the person.
