LeBron James said the lady who told him to “watch his mouth” has “set him straight” in response to an incident where he swore at the crowd.
The Lakers star scored 32 points in the 142-125 win against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday.
But the 34-year-old let his frustrations show when he shouted “f***” at a spectator.
A lady in the crowd, though, called him out on it by saying: “Hey, watch your mouth.”
Footage has now emerged of the Lakers star giving his response to the incident.
James is sitting down for an interview with ESPN reporter Dave McMenamin.
