Former ASU kicker and NCAA all-time field-goal leader Zane Gonzalez became the latest fall guy for the Cleveland Browns -- and Browns fan LeBron James isn't pleased with him.

The 23-year-old Gonzalez, who starred at ASU from 2013-16 and was a unanimous All-American in his senior season, missed two field goals and two extra points in the Browns' narrow 21-18 loss at the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Gonzalez's final miss came on a 52-yard field-goal attempt that would have sent the game to overtime in the final seconds.

Gonzalez also missed an extra point that would have given the Browns a one-point lead late in the game.

"“He better not say, 'My bad.' He might get his ass whooped," LeBron said about Gonzalez via his Instagram page.

The loss was especially cruel for Browns fans, whose team hasn't won a football game in 631 days. The Browns went 0-16 last season and nearly ended their losing streak last week vs. the Steelers, but they ultimately had to settle for a 21-21 tie in Cleveland. Gonzalez had a late 43-yard field-goal attempt blocked in the final seconds of that game.
