Not only did LeBron James throw down one of the most vicious dunks of the year during his Cleveland Cavaliers’ loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday night, he handed out one of the most vicious disses to a heckler curious as to the whereabouts of a former teammate, Kyrie Irving.
“Hey LeBron, where’s Kyrie?” the patron shouted before one of Damian Lillard’s nine free-throw attempts and makes.
LeBron: “At your mama’s house.”
Kyrie got hit with a $25,000 fine for his graphic response when a heckler posed a similar question to him earlier this season. LeBron likely won’t suffer the same fate.
After the game, LeBron didn’t shy from the incident, even liking the House of Highlights post on Instagram.
Perhaps the Portland heckler’s mom is a physical therapist — Irving exited a March 11 game after 16 minutes of floor time with knee soreness, and hasn’t played since, being listed as day-to-day with knee tendinitis.
The fan wasn’t the only individual on the receiving end of LeBron’s vitriol on Thursday night. He also had a fierce exchange with head coach Ty Lue that appeared to involve the four-time MVP’s pointing at the scoreboard.

LeBron led his Kevin Love-less team in points, rebounds, assists, and blocks, and tied for the team lead in steals, but it wasn’t enough, falling 113-105.
