LeBron James vs. DJ Fig from Akron

A man who goes by the name of “DJ Fig” tells Fox8 News his story of woe and emotional pain, caused by that mean, mean LeBron James: “Last weekend, DJ Fig, from Mix 94.1 in Akron, was at the Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas. Early Monday morning, he spotted LBJ and his entourage partying at a nightclub. As he took out his camera to snap a picture, the deejay said LeBron gave him the finger. ‘I said ‘Hey, Akron still loves you man,’ and he gave the bird as you see in the picture,’ said DJ Fig. The deejay said he was so shocked that he had to look at his camera to make sure it really happened … DJ Fig said he contacted the NBA to demand an apology and is still waiting to hear back.”

    who the hell is dj fig?

  • JTaylor21

    Don’t this people have a life. Chasing another grown man that’s partying. Who goes to vegas to stalk people, Vegas is for the bit*ches, gambling, and clubs.

    Lebron’s image just keeps getting worse and worse. This guy is gonna be on A-Rod or Kobe’s hate level soon if not already.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    This is just part of the culture of, as Lebron now calls the Heat, “Team Dillinger”.

  • http://google c_cantrell

    so y again is this guy snappin pics of lebron? lol i would prolly have flipped him the bird too

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    Alot of people seem to ignore the fact that this guy has refused to grow up since he came into the league i.e dancing on side lines, refusing to shake hands, and giving people the finger.

  • T-Money

    I’m tired of reporters reporting that they’re tired of reporting about LeBron. / Kap: i don’t like to throw that hollow term around but at this point, you’re just a hater.

  • Kundai

    Kap- stop talking guy, your basically ranting on lebron because he is teh first athlete that shows he’s having fun while playing the game he LOVES! . and for the not talking to teh press even kobe has done that and he even said people need to get over that. You would give people the finger if tehy was following you too. STOP HATING ON THE GUY HE’S HUMAN!!

  • http://slamonline.com Spaceship Jay

    Eboy, you MUST be lying about the “team Dillinger” comment.

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    If you are in the position Lebron is in you cannot be doing childish things like throwing the bird. You guys make think its cool or you would have done it but there is a certain way these guys need to realize they have to carry themselves especially if they are trying to develop a “global brand”.

  • http://www.twitter.com/dfrance21 dfrance

    Nah Spaceship Jay, he sent a tweet out yesterday welcoming Eddie House to “team John Dillinger.” Unless his account was hacked.

    Anyway, who know what this guy said to LeBron to get flipped off. He probably called him a traitor then whipped his camera out.

  • http://slamonline.com Spaceship Jay

    Sigh… Apparently, you were not lying.

  • Kundai

    Kap- are you a kobe brand ?

  • Kundai

    fan*?

  • http://screwjams.tumblr.com cramzy

    word? an apology?..the pussification of America burns my soul.

  • Kundai

    Kap- are you a kobe fan?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    I would think there was a bit of sarcasm to his tweet (since it’s hard to tell that from written word) but if he actually meant it, I think that’s actually gangsta that he is embracing being hated, since he was pretty much beloved for 7 seasons.

  • http://www.slamonline.com fred34

    he should sue for $50 mil – emotional damages and all. heyyyy for that matter maybe all of Cleveland can get in on a class action suit….

  • Kundai

    i agree eboy this new embrassing the hate attitude he may or maynot be true is pretty gangsta haha. Its gonna fuel these guys for real next season because they are hated to the point of almost being underdogs. cant wait for christmas day and the season. your looking at the modern day showtime lakers

  • namik

    He was also grinning his ass off in the pic. DJ Fig needs to grow a pair and move the F on.

  • namik

    Also, wasn’t it here that people said giving yourself nicknames was lame or whatever? Slamonline-Where hypocritical BS happens.

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    Um, can’t someone pose with their middle finger? I mean everyone still does it all the time just for kicks.

  • Lucas

    You’ll never see Kevin Durant do something like this.

  • http://www.dimemag.com Royal

    People need to stop acting surprised when they find out their favorite athletes are douche-bags. News Flash: Kobe’s a douche , Lebron’s a douche and MJ’s a douche. I can’t blame them either, they are living the life.I would
    be a douche too if I just signed a 100,000,000+ contract to play basketball. But on the other hand there are some cool ones in the NBA like
    Derrick Rose, who my father met in Vegas and actually was nice enough to actually have a conversation with him.

  • Kundai

    yea d-Rose is too humble man like its weird haha ive heard he can even be almost ackward at times, real down to earth 3rd fav player after bron and melo

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    Everyone has a docuhe in them, lets be honest. Everyone saying Kevin Durant and Derrick Rose are down to earth, I bet their are people who feel they are douche bags too. What Lebron did is stupid, but if he wants to hold his middle finger up, then he is hurting himself. LeGone doesn’t want Akron turning their back on him too, he can’t live in Miami the rest of his life. People still love him down their, but he has to win something to me to act like a douche. Get a ring first then he can throw his ring finger up, maybe that was what he was trying to do, but his mother wasn’t around to tell him what finger that is. Just saying……

  • Bruno

    I think that’s actually gangsta that he is embracing being hated??? hahaha

  • http://aol.com Run’N'Gun219

    2pac use to pose with his middle finger in pics just for the hell of it.. did it hurt his brand??? lol

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    Yes I am a kobe fan but I’m speaking regarding Lebron improving his image lately…I wasn’t trying to come off as a hater.

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    Well he is supposedly dead now so I guess it did hurt him.

  • Brad

    This is clearly smear campaign. Just take another look – The incident supposedly took place early Monday MORNING while Lebron and co was partying in a nightclub.

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    Why are you guys always defending this guy?

  • Kundai

    Because I was the same guy who defended Kobe bryant during his r**e charges. Or when he demanded a trade to a team becasue he was tired of not getting any help. there people too like they make mistakes but are blown up into epic life changing events. Kobe and Lebron are the same and have gone through the same type of love and hate. to me i respect Kobe bryant but his fans seem to dismiss any other player who is better then him now or threatens to be better than him. So im a kobe bryant Fan hater.

  • http://Badnewzb8ller Badnewzballer

    Lol @fred34 emmotional damages comment. Dj fig newton shoulda got the double finger from a lebron. He just wants an hour long nationally televised apology from the queen, not too much to ask for right?

  • unrel

    wasn’t dilinger hated by the system but loved by the people?.. if he’s embracing ‘hate’ like what you guys are saying.. he’s doing it wrong.. but overall.. who cares if he flipped off the camera.. it doesn’t mean anything.. for all we know.. he could have flipped off the guy in front of Fig or behind him.. and Fig took it the wrong way.. what did HOV say?.. “i ain’t you looking at you dudes.. i’m looking passed you”.. and is that even ‘bron?.. i don’t even go to vegas clubs with tshirts on..

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    I hope DJ Fig can find the strength to cope with his hero flipping him off.

  • Drew

    Wait, we can call the NBA to file complaints? LOL that’s news to me.

    ^Kap..
    y u hating bro? does everyone make it a big deal if u flip the bird to someone? yeah hes figure but as charles barkley says athletes are not role models.. hes a man just like u and i.. let him do his own thing

  • http://theurbangriot.com The Nupe

    For a guy so interested in his global brand, he sure seems to know how to damage it. Various celebs are photographed in clubs, restraunts, malls etc all the time, and it’s actually pretty rare for them to flip the bird. In general they know it’s bad for thier image. I understand LBJ wanting privacy and if he just put his head down or put his hand up to block his face etc, I would get that too. But flipping the bird was just immature. Maybe we are witnessing a change in his strategy from being a ‘fun’ dancing goofball who just loves playing the game to being an ‘NBA Gangsta’ who’s just taking teams out w/o regard for fans and will relish in the boos. “Professional Wrestlers” switch from being fan favorites to most hated all the time, so maybe LBJ decided to take a page out of the WWE book and hired Vince McMahon as his agent.

  • T-Money

    Word on the street is that Bron spat on a sidewalk two days ago. Still waiting on analysts to quantify how much that hurt his global brand. Also waiting on commenters to explain why they give a flying f-ck about his global brand in the first place. / Can we talk about ball in here?

  • JTaylor21

    @spaceship jay, that makes no sense. Please keep joe budden’s corny a** out of this site.

  • http://slamonline.com Spaceship Jay

    JTaylor21, Perhaps you should keep YOUR corny a** out if this sight. I’ve read you arguing over foolishness with nearly everyone that posts on Slam regularly. The fact that you would even waste your time to give me (or anybody’s) your opinion is rather… Telling. Who are you, a divorced woman with menopause?

    HAHAHAHA, those shirts are hilarious.. and well designed.

  • truthteller

    Eboy: I’m still waiting on your order for the “don’t hate the lakers cause they’re great” t-shirts I made this season!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    Not catchy enough.

  • JalepinoSauce

    he still a sic balla too though. Bron that is.

  • JTaylor21

    @truthteller I don’t hate the lakers just their insanely moronic fan base. Bunch of broke-back loving, tight jeans wearing, jerking pansies.

  • http://pardonthedopeness.blogspot.com DP

    DJ Fig Newton, grow up fam. Dude flicked you off. What the hell you want, a cookie with some signed Lebron shoes? Ish doesn’t work that way.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    JTaylor you should make a ‘jerking pansies’ t shirt…. :)

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    haha “jerking pansies”…NOW thats a Tee Eboy could wear.

  • truthteller

    Jtaylor: cavs fans are just as moronic (trust me on this) Celtics fans are just as crazy too!And your friend is starting a trend for bizzarre moronicness (miami heat) so what’s the difference? I think hating the Lakrs has a lot to do with the amount of superstars that franchise has had over the years and as a result, CHAMPIONSHIPS! let’s keep it real!

  • truthteller

    @JTaylor: or maybe it’s just a matter of KOBE!People hate the Lakers ’cause they hate Kobe!!!

  • http://Www.lkz.net Darksaber

    Oui, sounds about right: the ‘hate Kobe’ part.
