Isaiah Stewart went from relatively unknown young player in Detroit to the talk of social meida on Sunday night when video surfaced of him trying to attack LeBron James.
LeBron James was ejected after what appeared to be his fist and elbow connected with Detroit Pistons center Isaiah Stewart, beginning an altercation that took a few minutes to calm down after Stewart charged James.
It all started when they got tangles up during a free throw in the third quarter before James dislodged his fist into Stewart’s face, drawing blood. Once Stewart felt that punch and saw blood, he wanted to get back at the Lakers star.
That was a mistake in the eyes of Gilbert Arenas.
He took to Instagram and told the young man to be prepared for his final moments in the NBA for trying to square up against LeBron.
“…pack yo winter jackets and boots becuz yo ass is about to be traded to Budapest’
“hey brother, imma just be real with ya here,” Arenas started his message. “
pack all SHIT, pack yo winter jackets and boots becuz yo ass is about to be traded to (Budapest) somewhere
I don’t know what type of bumbaclot blood got in yo eye BUT u can’t charge at the #KING like that on tv
“we don’t do that in the nba” u probably haven’t read the memo on fight attempts in the nba#1 don’t square up with @kingjames @easymoneysniper EVER.
ummm thats it’s, good luck moving forward my man”
Stewart charged at James multiple times, shedding teammates and team security but the two never engaged after.
In the midst of the altercation was the Lakers mounting a furious comeback to win, 121-116.
