LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers are rolling through the league this season. They got in Monday’s video game against the Atlanta Hawks with a 15 -6 record, including a 4-2 mark on their existing seven-game trip. They have actually become specifically skilled at disappointing roadway fans. Through 13 road video games, the Lakers have an 11 -2 record.
And though the Atlanta Hawks made things fascinating during Monday’s video game, the Lakers controlled their battle throughout. That apparently didn’t sit well with an Atlanta fan sitting courtside, who got into an altercation with LeBron James and was ejected from the game by security. Lakers broadcaster Bill Macdonald even jokingly compared the minute to the meme of a Desperate Housewives cast member pointing at an indifferent feline.
As James revealed after the game, the argument was in between him and the woman’s partner, and he did not believe they need to be ejected from the game.
” At the end of the day, I more than happy fans are back in the building,” James told press reporters. “I missed that interaction, I require that interaction, we as players require that interaction. I do not feel like it was warranted to be kicked out. There was a back-and-forth in between 2 grown guys. We said our piece, he said his piece, I stated my piece, and then another person jumped into it and stated their piece. I didn’t believe they must’ve been tossed out, however they may’ve had a number of beverages, perhaps, and they could’ve probably kept it going and the video game wouldn’t have actually been about the game any longer, so the referees did what they needed to do.”
This is not the first incident James has had with a spectator throughout this road journey. In a victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers last week, James missed out on a shot at the end of the third quarter and was unhappy with how a Cleveland executive reacted.
” I felt like he was just a little bit too thrilled about seeing me miss out on,” James informed reporters then.
The Lakers ultimately got away with a success, giving them 12 roadway wins on the year and sending them home for 10 of their next 15 games. Hopefully, it’ll be a bit prior to LeBron enters into it with another road fan with such a long stint in Los Angeles ahead.
