If you’re an NBA superstar like LeBron James, you’re probably used to getting criticism everywhere you turn. But we’re guessing not even LeBron was ready for the savage burn that came his way Sunday.

James and the Cleveland Cavaliers were in Oklahoma City to take on the Thunder in a nationally televised clash of NBA titans. Late in the first half, James was called for a foul and, as he’s wont to do, began complaining to the official.

That’s when a woman in the front row decided to give the Cavs star a bit of advice.


It appears James was too busy continuing his plea to the referee to react to the woman telling him to “Suck it up.” But we’re sure he heard it, and we hope he takes her kind advice.
