Things got awfully feisty between the Los Angeles Lakers and Detroit Pistons, and LeBron James was right in the middle of it, along with Pistons big man Isaiah Stewart.
During the third quarter, Steward was bloodied after taking a hard shot to the face from LeBron. At that point, Steward had a choice between peace and war, and he chose war. The Detroit Pistons big man approached and tried to fight the Lakers star. Of course, players from both teams were quick to get involved.
LeBron got ejected from the game for throwing the elbow. But that wasn’t satisfying enough for Stewart, who was seen running across the court and evading security guards in an effort to take on the entire Lakers team.
The full altercation:
Footage from the crowd shows just how close Stewart got to taking on the entire Lakers team. Somewhere Enes Kanter is smiling while watching someone else do his dirty work.
Stewart was obviously ejected as well, but he did his job getting the Lakers’ best player out of the game. Now it’ll be up to his teammates to do the rest.
