LeBron James is one of the top contenders in the greatest-NBA-players-of-all-time debate. However, James had his fair share of dark times while playing the sport. As he prepares to come back stronger than ever with the Lakers, he went through a pretty bad injury during the last season.
The star was hated in his time with the Miami Heat as he chose to stick with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. The trash-talking reached an all-time-high in the 2012-13 season, and James completely shocked one trash talking fan with jumper-after-jumper after he was provoked to do so.
It all happened on February 14, 2013, when the Heat took on OKC and James kept going back to one particular side in the court. Upon further investigation, it turned out that it all started with the fan who had provoked James as he explained to the media.
He said, ‘Shoot it. You can’t shoot.’ So, I said, ‘OK,’ and I shot it. I made it, and then I made another one, and then I made another one, and then I made another one, and he stopped talking to me.
The Thunder fan tried his best to bring James’ morale down, but not only was he proven disastrously wrong, but Miami Heat won the match with Akron Hammer having put out an electrifying performance.
