LeBron James gets two fans ejected from Lakers’ overtime win over Pacers. One fan made a crybaby motion at LeBron as she left.
Another Los Angeles Lakers game, another pair of ejections. Only this time, it wasn’t players. In the middle of overtime in the Lakers’ 124-116 win over the Indiana Pacers.
LeBron James began talking with an official and gesturing to two fans sitting courtside.
After a brief discussion, security was called over and escorted the fans out of their seats. As they left, one of them made a pouting face and crybaby motion in LeBron’s direction.
It’s not entirely clear what got LeBron upset. There was no obvious incident like throwing an object or coming on the court, so you’d have to guess that one of the fans said something.
If you watch the possession before LeBron talks to the refs, he is standing on that side of the court while guarding Domantas Sabonis and is only a few feet away from the fans who ended up getting tossed — circled here in red.
