Braylon Edwards vs LeBron & Friends

by Marcel Mutoni

Braylon Edwards of the Cleveland Browns had himself a miserable game against the Cincinnati Bengals this past Sunday. So, to take out his frustrations, he punched one of LeBron James’s friends in the face. Naturally.

For reasons that remain unclear at this point, Braylon got into it with one of LBJ’s friends — a club promoter of sorts — and the victim claimed that the Browns’ receiver assaulted him because of his jealousy of King James.

For what it’s worth, James did not appreciate Edwards’s actions. And the AP was there to capture LeBron’s reaction to the alleged incident:

“I’ve never crossed paths with Braylon before, but it seems like there’s a little jealousy going on with Braylon and me and my friends. I have no idea why,” the Cavaliers superstar said after practice.

“I’ve never said anything to Braylon at all. But for him to do that is very childish. My friend is 130 pounds. Seriously. It’s like hitting one of my kids. It doesn’t make sense.”

I’m not sure what’s more emasculating for Bron Bron’s buddy: getting punked in front of the whole club, or having your superstar friend compare you to one of his kids. Either way, it’s not a good look.

Despite Braylon’s public statement denying any issue with LeBron Inc., if James ends up leaving next summer, Edwards and his dropped catches might want to think about relocating as well. His life in Cleveland will not be pleasant.

    That’s what too much 5 hour energy does to you.

  • tommmyboi

    Bron could take him anyway. He would kill the NFL

  • beergod

    Out all night.Good thing the Browns are doing so well that there is no need for practice or workouts in the morning.

  • heartlandG

    130! lbs! Bron starvin his ni99as hood LOL

  • heartlandG

    Help me out yall 2k10 or Live??? …I been ridin w live for a min

  • Hussman25

    I liked Braylon, but after this “incident” who knows… Alcohol is “truth juice” and now the world knows what he REALLY thinks of Lebron… Hey Bray, if you would catch some balls (we can’t all blame you for quinn or anderson’s play, buy you got to catch it if it’s around you) win some games and show some professionalism, then you too could be the king of Cleveland,OHIO… Grow up!

  • la huey

    @heartland: 2K, no brainer.

  • CSP8

    You have to understand where Braylon is coming from. If one mans off-season has more press than your career, of course you’d want to punch his smallest friend in the face…. DUH!!!!

    I bet that 130-pound friend is Little Dru Joyce (anyone else read LeBron’s book?).

    J.O.S.E.

  • NUPE

    Maybe I missed something. How does punching Brons friend equate to being jealous of Bron?

  • meloMan2.0

    @heartland: 2 years ago i was in the same boat. i felt tht i had to rock with Live because i had for years. but they simply arent producing like 2k. u kno what to do

    I think ballers are cooler than football players. Like more chill because footballers are too pumped up all the time. Even are crazy guys are mostly chill when not in game mode. They know how to turn it on and off

  • rog123

    The worst part of this hole fiasco is that edwards will most likey get off the hook very easily.

  • http://claydefayette@yahoo.com CDef28

    So we are taking LeBron’s side of the story without him even being there? That’s really idiotic. Why couldn’t LeBron’s friend have been talking trash to Edwards? OH NO, because LeBron is such a great guy; see: shaking of opponent’s hand after 2009 ECF Game 6.

  • http://slamonline.com/ niQ

    Well for what it’s worth, I’d like to see them fight it out on TV =)

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Throw up a LeBron post and a stupid party breaks out. Never fails.

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty aka make it reign aka flightschool aka the ghetto Kornel David

    @Seth, i bet its not “little Dru Joyce”, anyone read the linked to article?
    @Nupe, you missed somthing, the part of the story were they say “everyone knows Braylon is jelous of Lebron” and braylon edwards tells lil man that he would be nothin with out lebron…
    @CDef, lebron dosent have a “side of the story” because he heard about it over the phone the next moring. Kobe fan?
    @heartland, 2K10 and its not even close.

  • http://claydefayette@yahoo.com CDef28

    In LeBron’s world, everything happens due to jealousy of him. And no, I’m a Piston fan. Also, that free-rider would be nothing without LeBron.

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty aka make it reign aka flightschool aka the ghetto Kornel David

    Wish i would have read this 5 mins later and Ryan could have saved me some time. Also i love that while the depressed “reciver”(are you still technically a receiver if you never catch anything? or are you Kwame Brown?)was cursing Lebron and punching his small friend in the face, Lebron was boarding a private jet with Matt Damon on Entourage.

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty aka make it reign aka flightschool aka the ghetto Kornel David

    Oh, whatever. Must be nightmares of game 5 then.
    And its “free loader”.

  • http://claydefayette@yahoo.com CDef28

    LeBron can’t act and he isn’t funny. He can get on TV all he wants for basketball but its another thing to ruin a good show.

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty aka make it reign aka flightschool aka the ghetto Kornel David

    He wasnt acting retard. He was playing Lebron James.

  • http://claydefayette@yahoo.com CDef28

    It’s not nightmares. That was how long ago? It took me a minute to even remember what you were talking about. And free-rider and free loader is the same damn thing.

  • rog123

    You know your good when everyone hates on you for any little thing.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    ccef28 has a lot of hate in his heart.

  • rog123

    I agree with Z

  • http://claydefayette@yahoo.com CDef28

    No I’m sick of everyone taking the word of someone who wasn’t even at the scene. Maybe LeBron’s small cling-on isn’t lying, but I’m not going to look for what LeBron has to say about it.

  • http://claydefayette@yahoo.com CDef28

    And Boing, I didn’t say LeBron was acting retarded. The truth is, when I clicked info on the last Entourage episode and saw “LeBron James”, I chose not to watch it.

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty aka make it reign aka flightschool aka the ghetto Kornel David

    You said Lebron cant act, then i said he wasnt acting due to the fact that he was playing himself. Then i called you a retard, which at the time was kind of mean, but now that ive actually had to explain that i was insulting you, its more fitting than it is mean. Im going to stop replying to you now, since your clearly remedial and have some weird hatred towards a man who dosent know you exist.

  • heartlandG

    Even tho 2k jus dont feel right-I might have to checc it out-Dayum I’m I tha only ni99a still on Live!?

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    If I got punched in the face by an NFL player, and all anyone wanted to talk about the next day was how it was because I was some other famous dude’s friend, I’d be pissed off.

  • http://slamonline.com Brad Long

    Witnesses say Braylon caught LeBron’s hobbit sized sidekick with a left hook. Braylon later commented that it was a pretty good feeling considering it was the first thing he had caught since 2007.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    Any word on when Jay-Z is dropping the Edwards diss track?

  • Kevin

    LOL at Lebron making his friend seem like a straight up punk. That dude just came off worse than anybody in this situation.

    Browns suck btw

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty aka make it reign aka flightschool aka the ghetto Kornel David

    Russ, even if it’s true?

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Yes.

  • http://myspace.com/brandnew Bryan

    I don’t care other than to say braylons little ass doesn’t want it with lebron.

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty aka make it reign aka flightschool aka the ghetto Kornel David

    Um.. dunno who that^ was, but it wasnt me. Ill take credit/blame for the rest of it though.

  • roman

    2k10 all day-

    If that guy keeps running his mouth, Braylon Edwards is simply going to shoot him when LeBron leaves town next summer.

  • Jacki Jormp-Jomp

    Look we’d all like to flee to the Cleve.

  • henry

    wish bron would go take braylon’s spot

  • davidR

    way to put your friend down bron. dude gets punked at the club, then punked by you

  • http://www.rich-imaging.com Dutch Rich

    He could have pressed charges but he didn’t so he’s not THAT much of a punk.

  • rog123

    The only punk here is edwards. Hitting a man who is a lot smaller than you. I wanna see shaqs witness protection kick in and give edwards a nice shot and see how he likes it

  • http://claydefayette@yahoo.com CDef28

    Sorry I misunderstood Boing I was reading it on my phone. How would Braylon even know who this guy was when LeBron wasn’t with him? I could almost bet that LeBron’s friend was irritating Edwards. He probably has the little man’s syndrome.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    If you’re acting on a show as yourself, you still need to ACT. Meaning, you still need to know how to portray your emotions and whatnot without coming off as cheesy or unsure of yourself. I’ve heard stories of how Muhammed Ali could not act as himself in one of the first biographical movies about Muhammed Ali…

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    LeBron James could be an All-Star runningback/wide receiver/line-backer/cornerback/fullback/tight end… All those positions could potentially suit him..

  • vic21

    more childish than confiscating those dunk-on-Bron tapes? Don’t think so.

  • Exist4eva

    And this is news because?

  • rog123

    Nike confiscated them. Not LeBron. Get your facts straight. They were protecting their star. I highly doubt lebron rushed over and demanded the tapes be confiscated

  • jay

    TEAM BRAYLON all the way.

  • nicko

    the only time the browns will make it to the super bowl is when i take a sh*t

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    ^LMAO @ nicko.

  • rog123

    BRAYLON EDWARDS WAS TRADED TO THE JETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    Bron can’t have that much pull, right? Right?

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty aka make it reign aka flightschool aka the ghetto Kornel David

    the people in NY already hate Braylon Edwards cause theres no way this helps there cause for 2010.

    To judge Braylon’s performance on a horrible Cleveland team is unfair. He was a stud coming out of Michigan and will ultimately prove to be a great pickup for the Jets.

  • http://slamonline.com/ Spaceship Jay

    Z, I think LeBron does have that much pull. He’s the biggest thing to come into fruition for Cleveland since….?????? I seriously doubt whatever powers at be over there will let ANYTHING interfere with LeBron’s success. I know I wouldn’t.

  • Bishop

    What exactly has James won. He is a punk and as long as he is in Cleveland he won’t win anything. Goes to show what a useless city like Cleveland is that they cater to a no-championship cry-baby.

  • http://www.rich-imaging.com Dutch Rich

    Does this mean that Lebron WON’T be coming to New York??
