The theme of this season’s NBA seems to be drama and everybody is living up to their end of the bargain, even the fans. Tonight, the Los Angeles Lakers met the Indiana Pacers in a surprisingly gripping matchup. With LeBron James back on the floor after his suspension, he came back with full force and exploded on the offensive end.
However, that wasn’t the only thing he blasted off at. During the game, LeBron got some Pacers fans kicked out of the arena, which was probably the first time an NBA player has gone to such an extent. So, what exactly happened?
LeBron James gets hecklers kicked out
The Los Angeles Lakers road to the east coast hasn’t been the most pleasant. Their inability to get consistent wins has drawn a lot of criticism from fans, despite forming a super team this offseason. Of course, injury woes have been their biggest issue, but this can’t be their excuse for such poor performances.
Before entering into their face-off with the Indiana Pacers, the Lakers had just lost a rather close game to the Knicks. However, an absent LeBron James could have been the reason for it. The L-train had been suspended for one whole game because of what transpired between him and Isaiah Stewart.
But his return to play against Indiana didn’t go perfectly either. Although they won bagged a win, Bron had to teach some hecklers sitting courtside, a lesson. Nobody knows what they said, but it surely pissed Bron off to an extent that he had to drag a referee to get them kicked out.

Looks like playing without Anthony Davis, worked out quite well for the purple and gold. Their road trip to the Eastern Conference has come to an end with a neatly tied 124-116 victory bow.
Although they had a slow start, showering free throws before half-time helped them grab a much-needed lead. And of course, Bron’s 39-point performance was the driving force, along with Westbrook’s 20 points. In fact, some players from the bench provided a big boost as well, scoring in double-digits.
Hopefully, with no more hurdles to get past, the Lakers should focus on getting their record up, which stands at 10-10 right now.
