Twitter aghast over media telling NBA players about Erin Popovich's death on air

  Twitter aghast over media telling NBA players about Erin Popovich's death on air On Wednesday night, news broke that Erin Popovich, the wife of San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, had died. As condolences and tributes began appearing, one group of people who hadn't heard right away were some NBA players themselves. Following the Cavaliers' 100-97 Game 2 win over the Pacers, LeBron James was told about Erin's passing on air by TNT reporter Allie LaForce. James was clearly shocked, as was Warriors star Kevin Durant, who found out from media during shootaround in San Antonio.Reactions to the immediate broadcasting of those raw responses were met by many on social media quite negatively.

The Cleveland Cavaliers got absolutely spanked by the Indiana Pacers, 98-80, in Game 1 of their first-round NBA Playoff series, and LeBron James was visibly upset about it.

In fact, King James was so frustrated by the butt-kicking he and his teammates received at the hands of Lance Stephenson (who was extra spicy in this one), Victor Oladipo and the Pacers that he walked off the court before time expired.

Not surprisingly, fans on social media were quick to pounce on James for his lack of sportsmanship.
