During Wednesday night’s (November 24) game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Indiana Pacers, LeBron James had two fans escorted out of the arena after they seemingly said something to the superstar baller.
Midway through overtime of the Lakers’ 124-116 victory James grabbed an official and walked directly to the two fans, who were seated courtside. Pointing directly at them, the Pacers fans were subsequently escorted quickly off the floor and out of the arena.
It wasn’t exactly clear what the fans said, though they clearly got on James’ nerves.
Not seeming bothered, the fans walked out of the arena with sad faces on as they received a standing ovation. After the game, James did not specify what the fans did, but hinted that they were either using obscene gestures or language, which he labeled unacceptable.
"When obscene gestures and language come into it, can't be tolerated," James said, according to CBS4's Chris Widlic.
LeBron James scored a season-high 39 points to lead the Lakers over the Pacers. He scored eight of L.A.’s 12 points in extra time. The game was James’ first back after being suspended following an altercation with Pistons center Isaiah Stewart.
