The incident with LeBron James and two Indiana Pacers fans took on a life of its won in the wake of the unidentified man and woman being booted from a recent game.
Pacers writer Scott Agness reported Saturday on what exactly those two people actually did that got them ejected and it had nothing to do with a YouTube response that stated something about Bronny James.
“It’s right f–ing here!” James reportedly told referee Rodney Mott as he pointed out the offending fans. “Obscene gesture right to my face!”
Agness, citing sources nearby for the situation, adds that both fans made obscene gestures as LeBron told officials that there was some chatter directed towards him and Carmelo Anthony.
Agness also makes clear in his report that the ejections were ultimately the result of “an obscene gesture, not something that was said.”
It was a week filled with obscene gestures with LeBron as he would get fined for his own gesture in that game when the NBA levied a $15,000 fine on him for making an “obscene gesture” during the Los Angeles Lakers’ overtime win against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday.
James drilled a big 3-pointer in overtime to lead the Lakers to the 124-116 win, and hit Sam Cassell’s iconic “Big Balls” celebration as he made his way down the court.
