Enes Kanter trolls LeBron James after ejection

USA basketballer LeBron James was ejected for the first time in his 15-year National Basketball Association career on Tuesday, in Cleveland's 108-97 win over Miami. Johnson took a swipe at the ball and James missed a runner.

Cameras showed James criticise a referee after he believed he was hit on a drive without receiving a foul call.

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.

Playing in his 1,082nd game - a 108-97 victory against the Miami Heat - the Cleveland Cavaliers talisman was sent off the court by ref Kane Fitzgerald with 1:59 remaining in the third quarter.

Kevin Love had poured in 38 points by that point, including 32 in the first half.

Although Irving's comments may have indicated that he, like everyone else, thought James' ejection was questionable, it does not seem as if he wanted to stir the pot more than it already has been.

Perhaps LeBron - who was clearly quite heated as he made his way over to Fitzgerald - used some exceptionally magic words very quickly.

It was the first time in his 15-year career that he had been sent off.

After the match, the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player repeated his claim that he had been fouled. "We got the win, that's what's most important".
