Following Thursday night’s Game 6 blowout in Boston, needless to say Celtics fans were a little upset.
One particular fan, coincidentally sitting by the tunnel leading to the Miami Heat locker room, decided to illustrate his frustration by pouring his drink on an unsuspecting LeBron James.
It’s slightly possible that the fan was just trying to cool James off after a sizzling 45-point performance, but either way James showed class and for the most part shrugged off the gesture.
Word is still out on exactly which $9 beer was wasted by the fan at large.
@ByTimReynolds the fan who threw the ball seemed to not have meant it
by the look on his face . The beer was a punk move !

A fan dumped a drink on LeBron as he walked into the tunnel. Let's hold off on talking about great the entire Boston crowd was.

LeBron got a drink poured on him. What kind of drink was it? If it's Bud Light Platinum, the only loser in this exchange is the thrower.

Just got more respect for Lebron for not retaliating on the fan who poured a drink on his head! #Class
