On wednesday, Cleveland Cavaliers player,lebron James got ejected from a game against Miami Heat at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. This is the first ejection for the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player. James told reporters after the game;
“I got fouled and showed my frustration to the ref, and he sent me to the locker room,” J “That particular play, I got fouled all the way up the court, from the time that I stripped [James Johnson] all the way until I got to the rim. So, that’s what it was about. I said what I had to say and I moved on, but he decided I should get two [technicals]. It is what it is. We got the win, and that’s what’s most important.”
With two minutes to play in the third quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Tuesday night matchup against the Miami Heat at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, James drove to the basket looking for a layup that would increase the Cavs’ commanding 23-point lead over his visiting former team. Heat defender James Johnson bodied him up as he drove, and James took the contact, leaned back and lofted a runner that came up empty.
After Miami center Hassan Whiteside pulled down the rebound and the Heat began heading up on offense, James made a beeline over to referee Kane Fitzgerald to complain about not getting a foul call on the play. Evidently, Fitzgerald didn’t appreciate the way the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player registered his discontent, because he quickly hit James with a technical and then gave him the gate, marking the first time in a professional career that has spanned 1,298 regular- and postseason games over the last decade and a half that LeBron James was forced to hit the showers before the final buzzer.
