LeBron James' Yells At His Mother During Celtics Game (VIDEO)

LeBron James gave it to his mother Monday night during a game against the Boston Celtics. It appears he told her to "Sit yo *$*% down." Watch the video below - James' mother jumps up and tries to get between her son and a bunch of Boston Celtics when they fall into the crowd. Underneath the video is a longer description of what happened from USA Today.

Ms. James came roaring into the action in the second quarter when her son was wrapped up on a breakaway dunk attempt by Paul Pierce.

Kevin Garnett tried to calm her down, but it was LeBron who got the job done.

"I told her to sit down, in some language I shouldn't have used," James said. "Thank God today wasn't Mother's Day. All I could think about is her. ... I know my mother. It's fine, we're good."
