L.A. Lakers fans broke out in boos at LeBron James and the team as the Lakers lost in a blowout 123-95 to the Pelicans on Sunday.
It was another sign that L.A. fans are beginning to tire of Jams, who is still considered the NBA’s star attraction.

James even sulked off the court before the clock had run out on the game:

The Lakers are not doing well this year, despite having “King James” loping down the court. At 27-33, the Lakers are currently six games under .500.
James reportedly had a few words with unhappy fans during the game, too:
LeBron & Trevor Ariza confronted LAKER FAN hecklers during their blowout loss to NOLA:
LeBron: “What do you know about basketball other than the ball going in or not? Shut yo a** up.”
Ariza: “I don’t give a fu** what you are! You a b*tch! How about that?”

Twitter users were quick to blast James:
