LeBron lashes out at Celtics fans

LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Cleveland superstar LeBron James lashed out on Thursday at Boston Celtics fans who burned their Isaiah Thomas jerseys after the point guard was traded to the Cavaliers.

“The burning of the jersey thing is getting ridiculous now! The man was traded. What do u not understand?” James said in the first of a string of tweets, noting also that Thomas had shown tremendous heart when playing for the Celtics, suiting up for the playoffs in the wake of his sister Chyna’s death in a car accident.

The tweet from one fan of a video showing him putting a match to his Thomas Celtics jersey prompted the response from James and others.
