During the second quarter of Monday night’s Celtics-Cavaliers game, LeBron James yelled at his mother, Gloria, to “sit her ass down” after she came to his defense when got tangled up with Paul Pierce.”I told her to sit down, in some language I shouldn’t have used,” James said. “Thank God today wasn’t Mother’s Day. All I could think about is her. . . I know my mother. It’s fine, we’re good.”
It’s not right but it’s okay. Mama Gloria has been in the news headlines a couple of times for less than stellar behavior [most notably for her 2006 DUI arrest] so I can understand King James’ reaction. Gloria should seriously consider forming a NBA Mama Goon Squad with Ann Iverson. I can see them sneaking in Grey Goose bottles inside the arena now . . .
