Enes Kanter doesn't let LeBron live down first-career ejection

Adjust Comment Print

Following the Cleveland Cavaliers' 108-97 win over the Miami Heat on Tuesday night, referee Kane Fitzgerald explained his decision to eject LeBron James in the third quarter.

James poured in 21 points in the Cavaliers' win over the Heat before Fitzgerald slapped him with two technical fouls and ejected him with 1:59 left in the third quarter and the Cavs leading by 23. Johnson took a swipe at the ball and James missed a runner.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Jeff Green scored 14 points on 6-for-12 shooting, to go with 10 rebounds, 3 assist, and 1 block over 27 minutes against the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday.

It wasn't immediately clear what, exactly, James did to earn such a quick heave-ho.

While the Cleveland Cavaliers were playing the Miami Heat, Kanter chimed in on James' ejection by taking a shot on Twitter.

Perhaps LeBron - who was clearly quite heated as he made his way over to Fitzgerald - used some exceptionally magic words very quickly. However, it is more likely that Irving just has more pressing matters to deal with than a former teammate's first career ejection.

"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", James told reporters. He's not going to get big run all the time, but Green has the ability to play on both ends, which is a great asset for the Cavs when they go small. It is what it is.
