LeBron James finally had enough on Tuesday night in Cleveland when he gave referee Kane Fitzgerald an ear full for not callin’ a foul when it was clear that the dun should have. While the Cavs were up 93-70 over the Miami Heat with only 1:59 left in the third quarter LeBron went up for a layup and was clearly fouled by James Johnson, the ref decided to look right at the joint and not call it.
Well playas…LeBron was, at that point, frustrated for not gettin’ the call and let a boy have it. He went right at the ref and told him some things that Big Momma wouldn’t be too happy to hear. Fitzgerald T’d him up and then threw the ole umpire “You’re outta here” joint at him.
After the game LeBron had this to say, “I got fouled all the way up the court, from the time that I stripped him, all the way until I got to the rim. I said what I had to say and then I moved on, but he decided I should get [ejected]. It is what it is. We got the win, and that’s what’s most important.”
He went on to say, “I think I’m one of the league leaders in points in the paint. I drive just as much as anybody. At this point, it’s almost like they’re trying to turn me into a jump shooter. I can’t be a jump shooter. I’m not a jump shooter.”
Ole boy was talkin’ about how the officials are not callin’ fouls when he’s clearly bein’ fouled goin’ to the rack.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Ninety-nine percent of the time the superstars in this league get the “benefit of the doubt” calls. Especially the generational players, Magic, Jordan, Bird, Kobe etc. You already knew that you couldn’t touch those cats. So why is it that LeBron’s gettin’ treated like the ball headed step child when he one the best to EVER do it?
This season alone his free throw attempts are 5.4 per game which is a career low for him and his field goal attempts are at 19 per game. That’s his most attempts since the 2009-10 season.
Therefore, I can completely understand why he snapped on Tuesday night when a boy is all in his pockets the entire rip down the floor and then he’s fouled on the shot attempt itself.
It’s not like the dun plays crazy and is typically out of control because that was the first time in his 15 year career that he’s been ejected from a game. Bruh…that was the first time he’s been thrown out of a game in 1,082 games. That’s NUTS!!!
Well…now that he’s jumped off of that roof. Look for him to get about two or three more ejections this season because boyz know that he’s sensitive about not gettin’ the calls now. He’s played with the poker face up to this point but now it’s gone. He’s showin’ all of his emotions and that’s a problem.
As long as boyz in the hood didn’t know that you were bothered by foolishness the foolishness didn’t always come your way. But as soon as you let him know it bothered you. It showed up at your door step every day.
So boyz around the league are about to start Hack-A-Shaq-in’ him to death to either frustrate him or get him ejected whichever comes first. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
