LeBron James returned to the game against Indiana Pacers after a brief suspension for an incident against the Detroit Pistons. He first led the Los Angeles Lakers to a treasured victory, then met journalists who naturally grind many questions.
It was only the second victory in the last six matches Los Angeles Lakers. For almost the entire match Indiana Pacers chased, but after three valid throws LeBron James in extra time, they were eventually able to tip the scales to their side. James led his team scoring 39 points. He wasn’t playing Anthony Davis, who is struggling with the disease. After the match, James met with media representatives and referred to recent events.
– I thought I would end up being kicked out of the game after all the confusion that resulted from this incident. My continued presence on the court floor could be provocative for the fans – James admitted. – But the suspension? I don’t think it was necessary. The league finally made that decision – added. It was supposed that NBA will not give up getting rid of one of the league’s top players from a scene like Madison Square Garden, but it was decided that the example of James and Isaiah Stewart it will become a warning to others.
Eventually, James ran out of the match against the Knicks and his team did not manage. For the first time in his long career, the LBJ was resting not because of an injury but because of the league’s decision to suspend. It can be seen that recently the NBA has been very strict with any form of unsportsmanlike behavior. This is, of course, to eradicate any behavior that is inconsistent with the spirit of the sport. Even the King himself was not spared.
James came back to the game after injuring his abdominal muscles. He played his best game of the season against Pacers. In 8 games of the current competition he scored 22.8 points, 5 rebounds and 6.1 assists, hitting 49% FG and 35.6% 3PT%. These are the weakest numbers in the player’s career since his rookie season. However, this is not of great importance, as it is crucial for the Lakers that the rotation leader should present his optimal form in the playoffs. First, however, you have to be promoted to them.
