The NBA has suspended LeBron James for one game without pay and they’ve suspended Isaiah Stewart for two games without pay according to League Operations President Bryon Spruell.
LeBron was suspended for recklessly hitting Isaiah in the face and initiating an on-court altercation.
Isaiah was suspended escalating an on-court altercation by repeatedly and aggressively pursuing LeBron in an unsportsmanlike manner.
The shizznit hit the fan on Sunday (November 21) when LeBron hit Isaiah in the face causing him to bleed from his eye and mouth.
Isaiah, in short, completely lost it and sought immediate retribution.
Watch the clip below.
This is the first suspension of LeBron James’ NBA career and Sunday night’s ejection was the second of his career.
Fans took to social media on Monday to react to the melee on the court.
Welp. There’s a first time for everything.
Hopefully, cooler heads will prevail when these two face off again at the Staples Center on Sunday, November 28.
