Daily Talker: LeBron Crash & Courtside Safety

LeBron James is making headlines again.

Earlier this week, Boston fans praised him for giving his shoes to a special needs fan.

Then, just last night, he plowed into the wife of a golf star, sitting courtside during the Cavaliers-Thunder game in Cleveland.

James was scrambling for a loose ball, when he crashed into Jason and Ellie Day's seats, knocking Ellie over.  
                                                                          Emergency crews took Ellie out on a stretcher, with her head immobilized.
She spent the night in the hospital, under observation.

James says he spoke with her as medical crews were helping her out, and she told him she was OK, just shaken.

The Days welcomed their second child just five weeks ago.

Earlier this month, Major League Baseball issued new safety netting recommendations after several fans were injured this year. Do you think the NBA needs to take a closer look at safety for courtside seats?
