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.”
