Don't be talking about LeBron James' mama unless you want to find yourself on the end of a physical threat from the 6'8" superstar. According to an NBC Sports journalist's Twitter, James apparently got into a bit of verbal smack down with a fan heckling him at Friday's game against the Washington Wizards.

NBC Sports writer and self-proclaimed "Mila Kunis' butt double" Sarah Kogod saw a fan at the Wizards game exchange words with LeBron during the game, and then went to get his side of the story. She then Tweeted what the fan told her.

Wanted to give Heat PR time to comment on the LeBron fan altercation. I'll update you if they end up doing so, but here's the story...

...I saw a Wizards fan and LeBron in a heated conversation on the sideline during the game Friday night. I spoke to the fan and got his side...

...LeBron was waiting alone in the backcourt when fan Bob Moore made a comment to LeBron about Delonte West and LeBron's mom...

...Accrdng to Moore, LeBron said "The only reason you talk shit is because you know I can't come off the court right now and beat your ass"...

...Also according to Moore, LeBron continued "But if I had a free pass, I'd kick your ass right now."...

...Moore replied "I'm right here baby. Let's go" before security stepped in.

Of course, no word yet from Heat PR, but you can't blame a guy for getting upset when someone talks smack about his mama.
