The recent Lakers-Rockets NBA game saw a heated exchange between LeBron James and Rockets’ head coach Ime Udoka. The latter’s subsequent ejection from the game led to fan reactions and discussions about their past encounters.

The heated exchange, which occurred in the game’s final quarter, led to technical fouls for both James and Udoka. For Udoka, this was his second technical foul of the game, resulting in his ejection. The Lakers dominated the game, especially in the second quarter whilst the Rockets faltered after Ime’s departure.


Stephen A. Smith, Shannon Sharpe, Skip Bayless, and many others commented on the situation. The reactions varied from person to person. Some supported LeBron, while others supported Udoka.

LeBron James, however, humorously dodged questions about the argument. He told the media their very friendly conversation was about how much fun they had on Thanksgiving. This response hinted at a desire to downplay the incident, focusing instead on the festive spirit. However, King James fans did not leave it at that. They unearthed old clips featuring James and Udoka.
