Ref Says LeBron James Was Ejected After He ‘Threw An Air Punch Directly At Me’ (VIDEO)
On Tuesday, LeBron James did something he had never done in his illustrious career: Get thrown out of a game.
After going up strong for a basket in the 3rd quarter, the Cleveland Cavs star became enraged when he didn’t get a foul called. James went off on the referee, which should’ve resulted in just a technical foul, but he got ejected instead.
