LeBron James

Alleged Mishegas at

Jewish Basketball Game

11/13/2011 9:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James
LeBron James
was the target of some Old Testament aggression after a Jewish league basketball game this week ... when a man in the gym UNLOADED on the NBA star over an alleged anti-Semetic comment.

As we previously reported, LBJ was a last minute fill-in for a team at the Mandel Jewish Community Center in Ohio Monday night ... and his team, CRUSHED their opponents.

But after the game, LBJ was verbally accosted by a man who worked at the kosher sandwich shop inside the center -- who claims he heard LeBron telling his buddies, "These Jews suck at basketball."

The man tells TMZ ... he definitely fired off some choice words to King James -- including, "Princess James Get out of Cleveland" and "F**k you, you ruined the NBA."

The man says he was later contacted by his boss, who suspended him from his job for 3 days over the verbal attack.

A rep for James tells TMZ LeBron did not make the comment in question.

TMZ received a statement from a Jewish member of the team LeBron was playing with that night -- who tells us the allegation is "nonsense" ... and insists LeBron couldn't have been nicer to everyone at the JCC, both Jews and non-Jews. 

For the record, LeBron has a pretty good relationship with the Jews -- besides dabbling the in the Hebrew basketball league ... he's also tight with a pretty famous orthodox rabbi.

It's not accurate. We suck at every sport, not just basketball (unless you consider chess a sport)

Web,
By saying Lebron has no talent and his basketball IQ is 15 you have exposed yourself as someone who does not no anything about the Game of basketball. Stay with watching Judge Judy and stay away from sports because you are mentally challenged when it comes to grading sports stars.
