LeBron James had his new teammate Isaiah Thomas’ back on Twitter Thursday morning.

Shortly after news broke that Isaiah Thomas had been traded to the Cavaliers, several attention-seeking “fans” shared videos of them taking matches and gasoline to their Celtics No. 4 jerseys.

(Keep in mind, Thomas played in a playoff game for the Celtics against the Bulls the day after his sister died tragically in a car accident.)

Jaylen Brown called fans burning his former teammate’s jersey “pathetic.”

James had a hot take for fans who burn former player’s jerseys after said player gets traded.

“The burning of the jersey thing is getting ridiculous now! The man was traded. What do u not understand?” James tweeted Thursday morning.

James basically called the fans hypocritical, too.

“If these guys weren’t good, you guys would be the first to say, ‘Get them up out of here.’ Man beat it!,” he wrote. “When ‘we’ decide to do what best for us, it’s ‘cowardly,’ ‘traitor,’ etc. But when it’s on the other side it’s ‘business’ huh!?!?”

Here’s the James’ full thread:
