After countless number of games, LeBron James was finally back in action for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Detroit Pistons but it did not end up the way 4xNBA Finals MVP wanted it to be. Although the purple and gold registered a comeback victory against the home team yet Lebron James saw himself being thrown out of the game in the third quarter when he elbowed Isaiah Stewart in his right eye.
Evidently, Stewart after receiving the elbow was bleeding and wanted to somehow get his hands on LeBron James, which resulted in causing chaos whilst the entire Pistons bench was on the court it trying to stop the starter from doing so. On the other hand, players like Anthony David and Russell Westbrook were too involved in trying to start another altercation witnessing Stewart losing his mind.
