LeBron James describes hatred of Boston fans: ‘Racist as f–k’

LeBron James isn’t mincing his feelings toward Boston fans.

On the latest episode of “The Shop,” James was asked rather bluntly: “Why do you hate Boston?”

“Cause they racist as f–k,” James responded. “They will say anything. And it’s fine. It’s my life, f–k I’ve been dealing with it my whole life

I don’t mind it. I hear it. If I hear somebody close by, I check them real quick, then move onto the game. They’re going to say whatever the f–k they want to say.”

James went on to recall an incident during the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals

Following Miami’s Game 6 victory at TD Garden, a Celtics fan poured a drink on James while he walked back to the locker room.

“There was like a f–k LBJ t-shirt,” James continued, laughing. “I believe they sold it at the f–ing team shop.”

Klay Thompson, too, expressed his displeasure with Celtics fans following Game 3:

“We’ve played in front of rude fans before,” Thompson said after the game.

Prior to the Nets’ first-round series against Boston in May, Kyrie Irving admitted to hearing racist remarks directed toward him during his Celtics’ tenure.
