LeBron James

LeBron James issued a sincere apology to Australian golfer Jason Day's wife, Ellie Day, after he collided into her on the sideline while diving for a loose ball.

The collision happened late in the 4th quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers' 104-100 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday.

Ellie Day was seated at courtside with her U.S. PGA champion golfer husband when James dived headlong into while chasing the ball. James was able to keep the ball inbounds but all of his 6'-8" 250 pound frame landed on Ellie, flipping her and her chair over.

Ellie lay on the floor for several minutes while the team doctor tended to her. A decision was made out of an abundance of caution to transport her to a hospital.

Ellie was fitted with a neck brace, placed on a backboard and carried out of the arena to a small smattering of applause from Cavaliers fans.

"Ellie Day I hope you're doing okay! My apologies! Hope u guys come back to another game soon. Love LJ!" James tweeted after the game.

James told reporters Ellie Day was doing fine. She was released from the hospital early Friday morning.

"The guys told us she's doing great now,” he told reporters.

When asked if fans should not be allowed to sit so close to the action, James said he thought the court side seats were "a great experience" for fans.

"I mean that doesn't happen much. It's unfortunate it happened tonight but that doesn't happen much," he said.

"If I was a fan, which I am a fan of the game but I would love to sit courtside and watch games," he added.

    He saw it in his peripheral.

    Keeping her overnight just bolstered her case. They will sue the city who owns the court, the owner of the team, NBA and Lebron James. I bet right on the ticket you purchase is a bunch of fine print that waives your right to sue. They will probably get offered some moolah through a settlement ....?

  • abby500

    If he had fell on me like that I would have spread my legs, grinned him and popped up pregnant! How u doin' Savannah, bronny and the other boy? Meet your new lil brother LeCome-Up ??

  • Sincerity7

    That's the risk you take when you sit that close. Get well soon!

  • Miki

    Didn't she know to move when he was coming? It's like she was just sitting there... I think she wants that money personally ...

  • TDW

    She was probably even more afraid when she SAW him coming towards her

  • SpiceGirl

    welp this is what happens when you so happen to have "floor" seats. Glad she's good tho.

  • just being me

    It was really fun to watch but really thats the price you pay for sitting court side but I still think she is about to be paid !!!!! I wonder did she enjoy all that 6'8" 250 black man all over her .. She may get another court side seat soon praying it happens again lol

  • Mz.Capricorn

    Awww....I feel bad now, they said on my local news that she just had a baby 6 days ago.

  • Mz.Capricorn

    @Vanilla. Lol. Girl sometimes you gotta take the initiative.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    What ...... Sandra rofl

  • barbeez

    He could land on me anytime.

  • hoochie?

    I would have grabbed his nuts sack.. I get a free feel!

  • B Zandaz

    That has nothing to do with race lebron's azz is big and tall it probably felt like a tank landed on her...

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Right!!!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    My guess is that there's disclaimer on court side seats but yeah since she's already rich they will give her some money just so they won't to see her lawyers' shadows.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Well until after the case is settled.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    That's why she's going to sue.

    I bet her family lawyers started drawing up the papers for a settlement as soon as LeBron apologized.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    He gave her a$$ and back and his full weight fell on her.

    Oh I bet she has 'internal injuries'.

    She can't have any more children because that big oversized Negro fell on her even though she had her ish tied up and burned after delivered a few weeks ago.

  • Zizzle

    OUCH!!!

    If you've been to a baseball game recently, check the back of the ticket. There's likely a lot of fine print, and if you take out a magnifying glass and read it, you will probably see a general release of liability printed.

    Generally, when you purchase a ticket, you are signing an agreement that the stadium and team cannot be held responsible for your injuries during the natural course of the game. Balls do fly into the crowds -- as do men and sometimes cars. These injuries are usually considered a part of the game and the injured party will be unable to sue.

    Jason Day's agent later said in a statement that she was suffering from concussion symptoms and resting comfortably. Bud Martin added that Ellie Day had no hard feelings toward James, quoting her as saying, "He was just doing his job. Go Cavs."

    "She squeezed my hand and said she was fine. I think she was just a little weary," said James, who was noticeably shaken by the incident.

  • surburbanhello

    girl us poor people ain't giving you sympathy on your court side seats. #carryon she will be fine

  • AJ

    THIS!!! People on the news were commenting on how he "attacked" her and now she is comparing it to being in a car crash. She has obviously never been in a car crash...FOH!! She paid for her up close experience with those expensive azz seats and she damn sure got it.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    There should be a safety net or a cage around the floor to protect the spectators like at car races and MMA fights.

  • AJ

    Agreed. But you know the majority will fuss about not getting the same experience with the barriers.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    They don't fuss at car races and MMA matches.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Did you read my original post?

    I stated that there is probably some disclaimer on the ticket that releases the stadium owners and the players from liability if a spectator is injured, but since she's rich she will probably have her bills paid and given money just to keep her happy.

    The rich in America get more than they deserve just for being rich.

    Right and she just set their and let him do it she could of held his ass up
