The evidence continues to mount against LeBron James, and at this point you have to think he’ll be on the receiving end of some sort of suspension for his actions earlier today.
During the Lakers’ victory over the Detroit Pistons, a fight broke out between both sides in the third quarter after LeBron elbowed Isaiah Stewart, leaving the Pistons big man bloodied. The two players had to be separated after coming face to face, but Stewart was determined to get at LeBron, barreling over security guards in an effort to get some retribution.
Footage continues to emerge from the fracas, with the latest providing us with a better look at how it all started.
In the slow motion footage, LeBron James could be seen battling with Stewart following a free-throw. And at one moment, LeBron is seen throwing his arm at Stewart’s face, and catching the Pistons forward’s mouth with his finger. The maneuver is called a fish hook, and James caught Stewart with a nasty one.
Both players were ejected following the melee, and the Los Angeles Lakers eventually rallied without their star player to take the 121-116 victory in Motown. Don’t be surprised to see some fines and suspensions come out of this.
