Mike Brown’s Son Received Death Threats on Twitter

The Los Angeles’ Lakers struggles this season have brought out the very worst in their fans. Head coach Mike Brown’s son, Elijah, received death threats on Twitter. Yikes … Per the OC Register: “The Lakers coach, though, had no idea his son had received threats on Twitter despite having a friend monitor his son’s account. ‘That’s news to me,’ Brown said. ‘I will alert Lakers security. That’s the tough part about this business. To go after somebody’s family or something like that is, in my opinion, just ridiculous. It’s stupid, crazy, whatever you want to call it. They (family members) have nothing to do with what’s going on right now.’ Elijah Brown seemed unfazed by the comments, posting on Twitter that ‘Coaches fault when they lose but players glory when they win.. I’m not trippin well be straight!’ The coach’s son did receive support from Lakers’ family members — Kristen Blake, Steve’s wife, and Daniel Artest, the brother of Metta World Peace. Steve Blake and his family received death threats on Twitter during last season’s playoffs.”

    lol if you have Danny Artest defending you, then you don’t need any bodyguards. That dude is freaking nuts (well he was back when I knew him).

  • shockexchange

    What are Lakers fans going to do when D12 refuses to re-sign next year?


    He’s still nuts, lol … I speak to Danny every now and then. He’s a good guy; just not to be played with

    The concentration of crazies in LA is ridiculous…

    People who live in LA are fake as hell. No real NBA fan would talk out of their ass like that come on. Ridiculous. An intelligent person would at least threaten Buss. He’s the one at fault.

    I played AAU ball with Daniel Artest one summer. He once came to a game with khakis and these size 15 baby blue suede Hush Puppies, I’ll never forget those shoes cuz I’d never seen a pair that huge. Anyway, we played the game and we’re getting dressed. Danny had just crumpled his pants up and put them in his bag so they were wrinkled as hell. Just picture a 6’6″ man child with wrinkled khakis and powder blue Hush Puppies on. We were in the pizza shop and One of my teammates started cracking jokes. Danny had him in a headlock so fast he almost choked on his pizza.that was the last joke told the rest of the summer.

    humble brag ftw

    I hate this kind of stuff. Those aren’t fans. They are f*cking idiots. I don’t like Mike as a coach but threatening his son, man that’s so low. Sometimes being a Lakers fan is hard with so many idiots spraying gas, threatening other people and behaving like animals.

  • Sean B

    this is disgusting, obviously. but dopes like justin05 using this to blast an entire city also sound pretty dumb

  • theDankerNuggets

    Losing more and more respect for these “fans” everyday

  • vtrobot

    Fake pussies have been some of the biggest winners with all of the new technology.

  • RayJr

    Wow Daniel really like those Hush Puppies lol

  • William

    It was probably a kid himself but whoever should be tracked down and face the appropriate consequences. Nice to know it runs in the family for the Artests.
