LeBron James appeared to have the perfect response for Miami Heat fans taunting him during the Cleveland Cavaliers' visit to American Airlines Arena last night.

With the four-time NBA MVP sitting out the game as a precaution, mocking chants of 'LeBron is tired' rained down from Heat fans at various points during Saturday night's game.

And, according to one video at least, it looks like James had a very subtle, yet fitting, response for those fans who used to cheer for him not so long ago. Scroll down this article to see the footage of LeBron's reaction).

Now, unless James suddenly felt an itch under that hefty jewelry just as the chants came his way, it certainly looks like the superstar was making reference to the two titles (and rings) he won whilst in the Heat uniform.

Considering his exploits with Miami, LeBron may have expected a little more respect when taking his seat on the bench last night. However, it's not like he is a stranger to being on the receiving end of abuse from the stands down the years.

It didn't get much better for the multi-time All-Star as the night went on, either.

His Cavaliers ended up losing the Eastern Conference game 84-99 and are now in the midst of a three-game losing streak.

The Cavs' sixth loss of the season means that James' current team is now only one game ahead of his former employers. Still, despite their current slump, the veteran is still probably more likely to add another ring to his collection than Miami are to win their fourth title.
