NBA superstar LeBron James has been accused of making an anti-Semitic comment during a Jewish league basketball game at the Mandel Jewish Community Center in Ohio last week.

According to TMZ, at one point, James, who made a surprise appearance, said to a teammate, “These Jews suck at basketball.”
This infuriated another player who shouted back: “Princess James, Get out of Cleveland!” and “F–- you, you ruined the NBA.”
The man, who apparently worked at the kosher sandwich shop inside the center, was suspended from his job for three days.
A representative for James said LeBron did not make the comment in question, and despite the verbal attack, one of the Jewish members of the team said James was “nice to everyone.”
