Richard Jefferson responded to LeBron’s altercation with a couple on the Hawks’ court by ‘liking’ pictures of the woman in question.
LeBron had a mid-game standoff with Hawks fans Juliana Carlos and Chris Carlos in the Lakers’ 107-99 win on Monday. This war of words eventually led to Juliana and her husband getting escorted off the court in order to allow play to continue.
James later began calling the woman ‘Courtside Karen’ on social media, prompting her follower count to take off. This led to an initially disgruntled response from Juliana, but she later apologized earlier on Tuesday. Overall, people should forget about this woman’s existence in a couple of days.

Nevertheless, Richard Jefferson found it fit to add a little bit of zing to the so-called ‘feud’. The internet didn’t take long to figure the identity of the Carlos couple. Jefferson caught wind of this, and promptly went to her Instagram handle to figure out some mischief.
RJ began ‘liking’ all of Juliana’s posts – a fact that didn’t go unnoticed by NBA fans flocking there. Her follower count also began to take off as a result of this newfound publicity.
Wait you guys can see that? 🤬I’m in her side https://t.co/N2XeqB6f4x

Richard Jefferson and James won a title together in Cleveland in 2016, and it seems Jefferson is poking fun at his old friend. James and the Lakers don’t seem too worried about this incident, as they won their second consecutive game and improved to 16-6 on the season.
But this will prompt a few laughs and mentions in the Nets’ announcers booth in the coming weeks. You can be dead sure that Ian Eagle will bring this up at the first opportunity.
