As LeBron James dribbled out the clock to secure the win in Game 3 of the 2016 Eastern Conference semis against the Atlanta Hawks, Jeff Teague delivered a strong shoulder check on the Cleveland Cavaliers star, sending him flying into the crowd.
"My fault, go James," the 35-year-old explained with a grin. "We was losing. Shit, I'm a sore loser, what the fuck? He was beating my—I ain't win a playoff game against that n***a ever. I was sick of the shit."
The Cavaliers were leading 119-108 with less than a minute remaining when the shove took place.
"The motherfucking fans in Atlanta cheering for him, he running down the court. I said, 'You know what bitch, I got something for you.' Shoulder checked the shit out that n***a, he went into the stands," Teague recalled. "I got so much hate mail—'If he would've been hurt, I would've killed you, bitch!' I'm like, I gotta get off the internet, that's when I first deleted Instagram."
LeBron and the Cavs would not only go on to complete the sweep of the Hawks, they ended up coming back from a 3-1 deficit against the Golden State Warriors to capture their first championship in franchise history.
