It’s been a rough 2021 for LeBron James.

It’s about to get worse.

And that’s because LeBron just proved he is the biggest crybaby in sports with this embarrassing meltdown.

LeBron James returned from a one-game suspension for bloodying the Detroit Pistons Isaiah Stewart with an elbow to score 39 points in the Los Angeles Lakers 126 to 116 overtime victory at the Indiana Pacers.

But none of that was the takeaway from the game.

With 2:29 left in overtime, LeBron James dragged the referee over to the courtside seats and pointed at a young couple and profanely identified them to security to eject them out of the game.

As the woman walked off the court she mocked James by making an exaggerated pouty face at James and pretended to cry.

After the game, LeBron James claimed the two fans hurt his feelings.

“When obscene gestures and language come into it, (it) can’t be tolerated,” James whined. “There’s a difference from cheering for your team and not wanting the other team to win and things I would never say to a fan and they shouldn’t say to me.”

James claimed the fan’s profanity was out of line, but dropped F bombs on camera when identifying them.

Many mocked James for “bravely” standing up to two fans, but never having the guts to criticize Communist China for their human rights abuses.

Fans heckling players has been part of the game since owners began charging fans the price of admission to watch a game.

LeBron James proved once again he is nothing more than a whiny snowflake millennial triggered at the first hint of criticism.
