LeBron James has rubbed someone the wrong way through a celebration yet again.
The Los Angeles Lakers beat the Utah Jazz so badly on Wednesday night that LeBron was able to take his shoes off after subbing out with about eight minutes left in the game. James gave his shoes away to some fans and wound up in just socks. After a couple of blocks by Kyle Kuzma, James ran onto the court in his socks to celebrate.
Jazz TV announcers Craig Bolerjack and Matt Harpring were not happy with the “disrespect” shown by James’ celebration.
“Look at LeBron, he’s on the court. With no shoes… that’s some disrespect right there.”

Utah announcers angry LeBron w/o shoes & celebrating on the bench. Jazz announcers complaing that the refs should do something about LeBron allowing someone to come on the court to get some shoes he was giving away lmao.
It’s a Chinese custom to remove your shoes when a guest in someone’s home. Lots of walking on the court tonight. he gave his shoes to a young Utah fan so they should keep quiet.

The real disrespect was James giving away his shoes with time left in the game because he knew the Lakers had already clinched the win.
Over the summer,in celebration of a big dunk and lost a shoe. Some criticized him for being over-the-top with his celebration.
Some people don’t like him having too much fun (and getting away with being on the court when he’s not supposed to be). Of course, James was.
