15 years in the NBA, LeBron James is yet to be ejected out of a single game. That was until last night when one referee decided to put on some big boy britches and toss LeBron for “punching” in his direction.

Even though LeBron wasway taller than him. This, of course has prompted some interesting twitter responses:
I'd be mortified if I paid money to see LeBron ejected.

NBA League Office directive sent to Refs in order to reduce Bron’s minutes to preserve him for postseason? #conspiracySZN

Ref Kane Fitzgerald on ejection of LJ: "It was a culmination
of a couple different acts. Immediately after the no-call, he turned and threw
an air punch directly at me and then he aggressively charged at me and then he
used vulgarity in my ear a few times."

If this ref was a cop, he definitely would have shot Bron and sprinkled crack on him https://t.co/FehAouTBRE

That’s not nearly as interesting as Lebron threatening to kill him and send pieces of his body to his family. I’m staying with mine. Time will tell us the truth. I NEED ANSWERS.

LeBron has pushed the envelope for years in regard to arguing with officials…… I thought an ejection like this was inevitable.

Nobody knows what he said to him, or what he's been saying all game long, if anything. No ref is going to take ejecting LeBron lightly. Otherwise, poor baby.
