LeBron Wants 76ers Fan Surveillance Video Like We Want The Racist Graffiti Surveillance Video

Videos by OutKick

Remember years ago when LeBron James reported to Los Angeles police that someone had spraypainted racist graffiti on his mansion gate? It was a massive story from the usual suspects until it was no longer a story because it quietly went away. “The sports media immediately fell all over themselves to pronounce LeBron a heroic victim and cast the blame upon a presumed racist white person,” Clay wrote here on OutKick six months after the alleged event.

It was an era when fake racism stories were popping up at a blistering pace. It was around the same time when Michael Bennett was proven to be lying about Las Vegas cops profiling him for being black. Video later confirmed that Vegas cops acted professionally during their interaction with Bennett.

Then there was the LeBron graffiti thing. On a mansion gate. Yet there was no footage – ever. Not six months after the incident when Clay emailed the LAPD to get a case update. Not a year later. Never. No surveillance footage from the mansion gate of the most famous basketball player in the world. There wasn’t even proof that someone painted anything on the gate.

“I’m a black man with a bunch of money and a crib in Brentwood, and having the word ‘n—–‘ spray painted over my gate, that lets you know I still have a lot of work to do,” James said at the time.

LeBron wasn’t at the house at the time of the alleged incident. His family wasn’t there. LeBron was just told of the incident. No photo ever emerged. Even TMZ was stonewalled.

Fast-forward to four years later and an incident from Wednesday night in Philadelphia where some knucklehead Philly fan poured popcorn on Russell Westbrook, who was heading to the locker room. Westbrook was furious, acted like he needed to be held back and it has since sent Bron Bron into a rage.

He wants surveillance footage of the fan. “There’s cameras all over arenas so there’s no excuse!” LeBron tweeted Wednesday night. Commissioner LeBron is on the case! Get ’em! Ban ’em for life! Bron Bron wants to cancel a guy for dumping popcorn on Russell Westbrook.

There was a time when Bron had no comment on the Los Angeles sheriff challenging him to put up money to find those responsible for ambushing two cops. But he sure is expending some energy to find the guy who dumped popcorn on Westbrook. Imagine that!

So here’s my trade proposal for LeBron:

(1) 13-second clip showing the fan pouring the popcorn. I know, it’s 2005 grainy footage, but it’s what we have to work with here.


(1) a 3-second surveillance video of the racist graffiti on your mansion gate

Straight up. No surveillance videos to be named later. No 7th round surveillance videos draft picks. Just a couple of 1st round surveillance videos and then we’ll call it a deal.

Here’s your video, LeBron. Now give us the mansion gate surveillance, you fraud.

  1. Hadn’t thought about the BS graffiti story in a good while. Thanks for the reminder of what a lying POS this guy has become. You should just set a monthly reminder to post a story about how he still hasn’t provided one shred of evidence to back up his claim.

  2. So he expects THE POLICE to go arrest this guy for throwing popcorn, the same police he has been shitting on for over a year? The same guy who supports BurnLootMurder Inc and wears their merch on the court. What a fraud.

  3. We The People no longer want you to just ‘Shut up and dribble” LeBron…..we just want you to STFU! Go away. Retire. Get out of America. You’re a hypocritical loser and NOBODY cares about you….

  4. I’m not gonna criticize Westbrook for being pissed about it.

    there is no one on this website that would be okay with some stranger tossing a bunch of popcorn or food of any kind on them.

    I still think the modern version of Lebron James circa 2021 is a truly legitimately racist individual.

    • We are talking about popcorn. This isn’t beer. Even so, with all the stuff former athletes had to go through, this is nothing. The modern NBA athletes are pampered and entitled babies who lash out at the slightest sign of disrespect with violence.

  5. So now LeBron wants the racist police to find the fan who dumped popcorn on Westbrook. The high school dropout doesn’t see the hypocrisy in his comment. This fool needs to shut up and dribble. Every time the high school dropout opens his mouth he proves the old saying that it’s better to keep silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

  6. But the Philadelphia arena operators have already banned the guy from the arena. The 76’ers have suspended the guys season tickets. WTF does Mr James want, for the guy to be put into prison and subjected to capital punishment?

    The guy who dumped popcorn is a d-bag. There’s no doubt there. He’s been identified and punished. Next Mr James.

  7. These weak ass bitches can’t even take popcorn dumped on them without going into a violent rage. A look can be deemed “disrespectful” and they lash out with violence. This is way too prevalent in the black community. Anyways, LeBron, Durant, and others, will eventually beg for fans instead of wishing them banned. People are leaving the NBA in droves. Then again, they’re too narcissistic, have way too much money, and are too dumb to notice.

  8. Wow popcorn. I mean I get it no one wants anything thrown on them, whether popcorn or piss (visiting soccer teams to Mexico City can attest) but really LeBron. This just adds to LeBron’s status as the fakest and least self-aware person on the planet. Meanwhile, all of the country there were hundreds of young black men being shot by other young black men this week but we don’t need police for that, we need police for a dunk ass fan who threw popcorn on Russell Westbrook. Meh.
