You’ve got to be a pathetic, heartless individual to fire up twitter and then attack the high school son of an NBA coach because your favorite team is struggling. Seriously, who does that? From the OC Register:
some fans’ ire Wednesday was directed at Brown’s son, Elijah, who plays basketball at Mater Dei High. The Lakers coach, though, had no idea his son had received threats on Twitter despite having a friend monitor his son’s account.
Elijah, a 6-foot-3 senior guard for California-power Mater Dei, is a mid-major D1 prospect. He has offers from James Madison, Akron, Toledo and Kent State, among others.
Steve Blake’s wife Kristen rushed to Elijah’s defense when she saw what was happening.
Leave Mike Brown’s son alone. What’s wrong with u people?! Stop attacking FAMILIES! How would you feel if YOUR family was treated like that?

Get a grip, Lakers fans. It’s been a week.
