LeBron James was ejected for the first time in his career and it came against his former team
LeBron James did something on Tuesday night that has never happened before in his 15-year NBA career — he got ejected.
James was tossed from the game in the third quarter against his former team, the Miami Heat. The Cavs were leading by 23 points at the time.
James drove to the basket and felt he got fouled on his missed shot. He quickly and adamantly argued for a foul. The official followed with a quick ejection, rather than just a technical foul.
It is unclear what exactly led to the ejection. Replays appeared to show that James did not bump the official as some had speculated.
