Friday, while everyone was watching the Cavaliers end their 26-game losing streak against the Clippers, LeBron James had a run-in with a heckler in Detroit. LeBron – somewhat nicely – asked the heckler for decorum. What did the fan say? According to the Sun-Sentinel, “The fan had heckled James about his mother, using a Valentine’s Day reference.” What, no mention of the time she kicked out a squad car window? [UPDATE: Four hundred and twenty three people claim the heckler said, “LeBron, is your mom going to see Delonte in Boston on Valentine’s Day,” or something along those lines.]

They met at the NBA conference Finals.
Third legal incident this calendar year.
It’s been less than a year since Goodell needed to hear from Ray Rice directly.
Rest in peace.
