Lakers’ superstar LeBron James gets mixed reactions from NBA Twitter as he shoves a fan at Usher’s concert while going for a picture
The modern-day NBA is not the same as it was back in the 90s or 2000s. NBA players are now no less of media personalities or celebrities as artists or actors. The Internet has given them a bigger stage, and a larger audience who follow and admire them. While this has its own benefits, it can also be a pain sometimes.
Recently, LeBron James was at Usher’s concert. LeBron James, being himself, cannot go anywhere without getting recognized. When he was entering the concert, a fan rushed at him red hot, for a picture. However, LeBron was having none of that and shoved the fan away.

NBA Twitter reacts to LeBron James shoving a fan
LeBron James has had a busy summer. After getting knocked out in the first round against the Suns, the King has been busy promoting his movie Space Jam: A New Legacy. Once that got done with, he would have been brainstorming with the front office about the trade options and the draft. Now that’s dealt with and they acquired Russell Westbrook, LeBron decided to blow off steam and went to Usher’s concert.
From the video, it is clear that LeBron James wanted no part of the interaction with the fan. NBA Twitter agrees on this much. However, they do not agree on the approach taken by the King to deny the fan. While some say LBJ should have just walked away or talked and denied the fan. On the other hand, others argue that it’s the fan’s fault for rushing at the King for a picture.
That’s literally assault

It would be worthwhile to see if this shove has some repercussions for the 4x NBA MVP.
