LeBron James Makes Young Fan Cry [VIDEO]

LeBron James accidentally made a young fan cry during a 90-78 win by the Miami Heat over the Orlando Magic on Sunday.  How did he make things better?


Let’s be honest: having fans sit courtside while huge NBA players run full speed after loose balls is pretty much a recipe for disaster.  Think back to when Shaquille O’Neal would dive into the stands after loose balls.  I’m surprised there isn’t a higher percentage of fans who permanently walk funny after being knocked over by NBA players.

I’m not suggesting that fans should sit further away.  I’m suggesting that you better be ready to brace yourself if a 6’8 man-child is diving head-first right at you.  That’s what happened when LeBron James dove after a loose ball on Sunday.  Granted, the fan that LeBron accidentally dove into is about five years old.  He could’ve been bracing himself for impact and it wouldn’t have mattered.

The kid was probably just more scared than anything.  Who can blame him?  I might be scared too if someone five times my size just accidentally collided with me.   LeBron did a great job of checking on the family afterward.  No harm, no foul.  Keep playing at full speed, LeBron, and hopefully everyone will walk away unscathed like this family.
