Cavs fan tied to LeBron tossed for yelling at Matt Barnes


Friday’s Game 4 wasn’t just out of control on the court.

A fan sitting court side, with close ties to LeBron James according to ESPN, was tossed by security during the third quarter, after getting into a verbal altercation with Matt Barnes.

The foul came shortly after an altercation between Zaza Pachulia and Iman Shumpert that led to double technicals. The fan, named Todd Leebow, began jawing with Barnes as the refs reviewed the tape. Both Pachulia and David West commented on the fan after the game.

Leebow frequently sits court side next to LeBron’ friends and business partners. On Friday he sat with James’ agent, Rich Paul, and business partner Maverick Carter. His father, Dennis Leebow, a wealthy Cleveland businessman, was ejected from the Eastern Conference Finals last year.
