LeBron James and Isaiah Steward engaged in a bloody battle during the LA Lakers vs Detroit Pistons game Sunday night.
The state of the LA Lakers in the national league is no surprise to the public. They are having a very difficult season. With constant injuries and sporadic play, the Lakers were led 8-9 in the rankings until meeting the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons are much worse than the Lakers.
Detroit increased their loss to 12 after the Lakers sealed a win in their favor by a tight 120-116.
But the LA Lakers’ win wasn’t the highlight of this game. Lakers superstar LeBron James and Piston’s Isiah Steward were involved in a very bloody little brawl.

In the third inning with 9 minutes left on the chicken, the Pistons rewarded a free kick. Both teams line up on the contours to get the rebound but while eliminating each other, James and Stewart There was a bit of an argument between them for physical superiority. James only used his arm to push the manager away from him. The arm hit above the manager’s right eye resulting in a cut of the skin.
Although LeBron turned around to see the manager huddled on the floor, the action was taken. Although unintentional as both players jostled each other for dominance for rebounds, LeBron’s strike could have jeopardized Stewart’s entire career.
Stewart didn’t understand it well. It took an entire army to stop Isaish from attacking James in retaliation. He created a chaos that lasted for minutes.
Anthony Davis explains his comments in a post-match meeting and is seen as breaking moves into chunks so everyone knows what’s really going on. He say, “Everybody in the league knows LeBron is not a dirty guy. As soon as he did that, he looked back and told him, ‘Mine sucks. I didn’t try to do that. ‘ I don’t know what he was trying to do. No one on our team, 1-15, is having it. “
he continued, “I don’t know what he’s trying to do. But I know no one on our team, 1 to 15, is experiencing that. We will protect our brother. I have never, in 10 years, seen a player try to do that as long as I am playing. … That is inevitable. You got a cut on your eye, like by chance, it wasn’t intentional. And we will not allow him to keep charging our brother like that. I don’t know what he’s trying to do, but we won’t allow it.”
Lakers coach Frank Vogel also offered his opinion and said that Stewart had already initiated contact. He say,
“[James] have an elbow [from Stewart] to the rib cage, where it was fouled and he was trying to cut off contact. And having casual contact is clearly enough for an unruly 2.”
Pistons coach Dwane Casey also gave his opinion on what happened between both payers and said, “It was a tough play for Isaiah,” “His eyes were wide open, and he was sad for a reason. So I don’t think James is a dirty player, but again, it got them going. ”
The NBA’s Twitter is split into two branches with and against LeBron James.
This unintentional hit sent Lebron James out of the game and his place for the next game is questionable. The Lakers will continue their five-game journey and will play the New York Knicks at Maddison Square on Tuesday.
