If you’re wondering if LeBron James has softened his stance on Boston since he caused a stir earlier this summer, the answer is a resounding “no.”

James ruffled some feathers over the summer when he declared on his non-stop show “The Shop” that Boston fans were “racist as f—”.

“They’ll say (anything) and that’s fine,” James said. “I mean, fuck, this is my life. It’s s— I’ve been dealing with it all my life. It does not bother me. Like, I hear it. For example, if I hear someone nearby, I will check it very quickly. I go to the game…

“There was like an ‘F— LBJ’ T-shirt. I believe they probably sold it at the f—ing team shop. The Celtics had something to do with that s—.

The Celtics, of course, haven’t officially authorized an “F—LeBron James” jersey.

On Tuesday, however, James fired on Boston again on Lakers media day. During an interview with Spectrum Sports, James described how new Lakers guard Patrick Beverley reminds him of Kendrick Perkins – a player you hate unless he’s on your team.

“I still hate Boston” Jacques said. ” Do not mistake yourself. We all hate Boston here.

James and the Celtics have had many battles over the years, both in the regular season and in the playoffs. The Big Three Celtics knocked out the Cavaliers in 2008 and 2010, but James and the Heat eventually broke through and beat the Celtics in 2011 and 2012. After a brief hiatus after the Big-Three, James – now back with the Cavaliers – has eliminated the Celtics from the playoffs in 2015 and in a dramatic seven-game battle in 2018 before heading west to join the Celtics’ bitter rival Lakers. Most Celtics fans despise James after so many battles over the years.

The feeling, it seems, is mutual.
