LeBron James Nearly Decapitated a Rich Lady When He Crashed into the Stands

Oops.

Sitting court side at an NBA game comes with two inherent risks. First, there’s a chance you’ll be caught on camera digging for gold. And second, there’s a chance a giant man will smash your face. 

On Thursday night, a lady in Cleveland learned about that second risk the hard way when LeBron James clattered into her face, knocking her backwards and sending her to the hospital

As it happens, the rich lady is Ellie Day, wife of pro golfer Jason Day, who jumped out of the way when LeBron came careening toward them. Not a good look, fella. 

After the game was delayed for several minutes as Day was tended to by medical staff and LeBron apologized, she left the court on a stretcher. She was later taken to the hospital and was reportedly released Friday morning. 

Day has no significant injuries but she does now have one hell of a story, if she can even remember it.
