The LeBron James-Courtside Karen story just keeps getting funnier by the minute.
During Monday night’s Hawks-Lakers game, LeBron was involved in a heated altercation with a woman and her husband sitting courtside.

After the couple got kicked out of the arena, the woman, Juliana Carlos, claimed LeBron had cursed her and her husband out during the game.
LeBron James looked at my husband during the game and cussed him out and I stood up and I go don’t fucking talk to my husband, talk to my husband one more time and I’m going to fuck you up and he started fighting with me and he goes shut your mouth dumb bitch.
He was like fuck you bitch, sit down bitch, and now all of a sudden I’m getting kicked out?
The Athletic went on to review all the courtside videos currently available and apparently, the only comment that is audible coming from James is of him saying “Ol’ steroid ass.”

Juliana’s husband, Chis Carlos, is a partner at an Atlanta-based liquor distribution company and is pretty jacked for a man of his age.

Despite the on-court beef, LeBron enjoyed the trash talk and didn’t think the couple should have gotten kicked out.
"At the end of the day, I'm happy fans are back in the building. … I miss that interaction. … We as players need that interaction."

“I don’t feel like it was warranted to be kicked out,”
“There was a back and forth between two grown men, he said his piece, I said my piece, then someone else jumped into it and said their piece.
“I don’t think they should have been kicked out…but they might have had a couple of drinks maybe, and they could have probably kept it going during the game and it wouldn’t have been about the game no more.
“I think the referees did what they had to do.”
