Tom Izzo excited to have Michigan State’s next football-basketball athlete in Keon Coleman

Tom Izzo has had football players play basketball on his team going back to his early years when Nick Saban was the Spartans’ football.

He had them in subsequent years, under John L. Smith and Mark Dantonio, too.

Now, Izzo is set to have the latest player cross Shaw Lane and play at the Breslin Center in the second year of Mel Tucker’s tenure at Michigan State.

Keon Coleman, a three-star wide receiver prospect from Louisiana, signed his letter of intent with the Spartans football program on Wednesday and made it clear that he plans on playing basketball as well as football.

Fans sitting courtside at Monday’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Atlanta Hawks were ejected from the State Farm Arena after getting into a verbal altercation with LeBron James.

According to ESPN, Hawks fan Juliana Carlos and her husband, Chris Carlos, traded barbs with James, 36, in the fourth quarter of the game, which the Lakers won over the home team, 107-99.

In a video shared on Twitter by SportsCenter, Juliana can be seen without a mask — a violation of the NBA’s rules for fans attending games in person — shouting from her courtside seat at James, who could be seen seemingly speaking in response. A security staffer then approached Juliana as she sat back in her seat.

ESPN confirmed that Juliana, Chris and two other spectators were then removed from the game.
