Anthony Kiedis Ejected From LeBron James’ First Home Lakers Game

Share

Brandon Ingram shoved James Harden, which itself wasn't that outrageous, but shortly after that, Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul started throwing punches at each other, a fight that began after Rondo spit on Paul.

Houston went on to win 124-115, spoiling James' home debut and leaving the Lakers without a win in two games so far this National Basketball Association season.

Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram weren't the only ones to lose their cool during a fight at LeBron James' LA home debut on the weekend. "If you wanted to suspend him one (game) I get it, just to make a statement".

Barring an appeal, Ingram and Rondo will start their suspensions tonight when the Lakers host the Spurs. Rondo claims the spitting didn't happen and Paul instigated.

Paul and Rondo were the main combatants trading blows after Paul stuck his finger in Rondo's face and pushed him hard.

We can only guess that the Chili Peppers frontman said something along the lines of "suck my kiss" or "what I've got you've got to give it to your mama".

Just three games into LeBron James' tenure with the Los Angeles Lakers, they were missing two suspended starters when they faced the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night.

Storming the court, the veteran singer, who clearly has a love for his city, approached Paul with fire in his eyes before getting ejected.

This one incident alone is definitely not something to cause us to run to the NBA Trade Machine and try to work out a deal for Ingram.

There have been longer suspensions in recent years, but none for an on-court altercation than what Ingram got. He referenced the incident, saying "At the lakers game last night with my dear brother".

Anthony, who tried to play peacemaker this time around for the Rockets, is probably wondering if he can call Vandeweghe and commissioner Adam Silver about recouping some of those lost game checks from more than a decade ago.

Paul and Rondo have been adversaries before, going back to 2009 when Paul played for New Orleans and Rondo was with Boston.

Thus, I would advise any fans of the Los Angeles Lakers to take this with more than a grain of salt.
