                                             Here is yet another example of how some folks take the performance of their favorite team way too seriously.According to the OC Register, the son of Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown has been receiving death threats on Twitter because of the Lakers' 1-4 start. How pathetic is that?“That’s the tough part about this business. To go after somebody’s family or something like that is, in my opinion, just ridiculous," said Brown. "It’s stupid, crazy, whatever you want to call it. They (family members) have nothing to do with what’s going on right now.”The wife of Lakers guard Steve Blake, Kristen, was quick to come to Brown's defense as well when she tweeted: "Leave Mike Brown's son alone. What's wrong with u people?! Stop attacking FAMILIES! How would you feel if YOUR family was treated like that?Brown's son, Elijah, is a senior at Mater Dei High School in California. He is also considered a mid-major D-I prospect, who has offers from the likes of James Madison, Akron, Toledo, and Kent State.So, to the select few who think sending potentially incriminating messages to family of your favorite team does anything positive, know that it doesn't. There is no place for that.Via The Big Lead.
