LeBron James threw a fist or elbow and was thrown out of the Lakers’ game against the Pistons on Sunday night. In the third quarter, James was ejected for a Flagrant 2 foul after James delivered a forceful backfist to Pistons forward Isaiah Stewart following a foul shot.
Before he could make his exit, however, Isaiah Stewart tried several times to attack him back.
He had to be held back by several players, but even that did not work as video shows him running into the tunnel to try and make it to the other side to get to LeBron.
The teammates who were following Stewart looked like they were trying to prevent him from treying to do whatever he had in mind.
Stewart’s outburst led to an ejection. Westbrook was also assessed a technical on the play.
Stewart, the second-year player for the Pistons, was named to the NBA All-Rookie second team for his efforts last season.
