Miami Heat star LeBron James, bristling at a fan's comments in Detroit recently, should consider himself lucky.
A fan did cross the line Friday, ragging on James with a moronic rumor-fueled comment -- heckling should never be confused with our current adherence to civil discourse -- about James' mother and Valentine's Day and Boston. James told him not to be disrespectful. James' two sons were sitting nearby.
James' fans supported him for sticking up for his mother and his kids. But non-admirers just thought he needed a thicker hide.
