When LeBron James gets two fans kicked out

Taken to task by supporters of the Pacers, LeBron James had these two fans expelled Thursday in Indianapolis. Which was not a first for the Lakers star.

After serving the day before at Madison Square Garden the second game suspension of his long career following an elbow on Isaiah Stewart, the Pistons player who then completely unbolted and was also suspended, LeBron James performed outstanding Thursday night in Indianapolis. Author of 39 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds, the quadruple MVP allowed the Lakers to return to victory against the Pacers (124-116, ap) and to present a balanced record (10 wins and 10 losses) after this road trip in the Eastern Conference.

And it was he who gave the victory to his team in overtime, with an incredible shot from almost 10 meters with less than two minutes left to play. But a few moments before this long-distance shot which allowed the Angelenos to take six lengths in advance, « King James » had gone to see the referee of the meeting to expel two visibly unseemly fans, a young woman and her neighbor, and he then explained it.

« In fact, nothing bothers me, he said after the meeting. But there is a difference between cheering on your team, booing the opponents and doing that kind of thing, not wanting them to are successful, and those times when we cross the line with gestures and words that should not be tolerated in our sport. Things I would never say to a fan, and things that a fan should never say to a player. « Not a first for the 36-year-old. He had already expelled a Hawks supporter who insulted him last January in Atlanta.
