NEW YORK (WFAN) — It seems wherever LeBron James goes, controversy follows.
Starring opposite Kevin Durant in “LeBron’s Flag Football Classic,” James showed off his athleticism by scoring a gorgeous pick-six touchdown with 10:11 remaining in the third quarter.
But then, live on Ustream, his inner Stevie Johnson came out.
The NFL fined Johnson, Buffalo’s embattled receiver, $10,000 this week for mocking Jets wideout Plaxico Burress during a touchdown celebration on Sunday. Johnson pretended to shoot himself in the leg, an obvious reference to Burress’ infamous nightclub incident in 2008.
Instead, Johnson shot himself in the foot. He was flagged for a 15-yard penalty, which was enforced on the ensuing botched kickoff — and ultimately turned the game in the New York’s favor.
James’ squad had a better outcome. Team LeBron won, 70-63.
