I Sense a Chunky Soup Commercial in the Making

LeBron James scolds mom during Cavs-Celtics game

By J.E. Skeets

In the second quarter of tonight's Cavaliers-Celtics game, LeBron James, on a breakaway dunk, was wrapped up by Paul Pierce. The two players became tangled and stumbled their way under the basket near where LeBron's mother sits. Gloria James, being the firecracker that she is, started yelling at Pierce for the hard foul on her son. Here's the video with LeBron's classic reaction — keep an eye on the woman in the white shirt:

Yup. That's LeBron telling his mother to "sit your (butt) down!" Happy Day-After Mother's Day, mom!

Are we supposed to believe this is real? This action smacks more of Vince McMahon Jr. than Dr. James Naismith. Lets face it, the NBA has become a giant snorefest. It's only a matter of time before they start scripting the action. It's a perfect time to bring retired college coaching legend Bobby Knight into the fold as a chair-tossing, powderkeg "special commissioner" charged with cleaning up the league. Bring back Dennis Rodman as a team manager who "don't play by the rules". Script some walk-on spots for superfans Spike Lee and Jack "Seven Iron" Nicholson.

You heard it here first.

It's been a snorefest for decades, at least. Not to mention that nobody plays hard until the playoffs.

I watched about two minutes of the Lakers game Sunday. Or, rather, some one-on-none featuring Bryant
