On the latest episode of The Shop, the Lakers superstar called Celtics fans “racist as f–k” in response to a question about places he hates to play the most.

“Cause they racist as f–k,” James responded. “They will say anything. And it’s fine. It’s my life, f–k I’ve been dealing with it my whole life. I don’t mind it. I hear it. If I hear somebody close by, I check them real quick, then move onto the game. They’re going to say whatever the f–k they want to say.”
James went on to recall an incident during the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals when a Celtics fan poured a drink on James while he walked back to the locker room.
“There was like a f–k LBJ t-shirt,” James continued, laughing. “I believe they sold it at the f–ing team shop.”
Prior to the Nets’ first-round series against Boston in May, Kyrie Irving admitted to hearing racist remarks directed toward him during his Celtics’ tenure.
