The Los Angeles Lakers found their rhythm back following their 124-116 victory against the Indiana Pacers in overtime. The reason behind their vital win, LeBron James, made the headlines for two reasons last night. One, for his incredible performance after his career-first suspension. Two, getting two courtside fans ejected from the game because of some heckling.

This Lakers vs Indiana Pacers game came with another pair of ejections. The only difference was that it wasn’t the players who had to see the exit door, but a couple of fans. There is no update on what they said to piss off LeBron to an extent that he decided to call the referee to express his concerns and requested for them to leave.

It’s not like LBJ isn’t used to some heckling and hatred, but they have had to have said something extremely offensive for him to take this extreme measure. Other than that, the night ended on a good note for the purple and gold, who finally improved their record to 10-10 after this victory. But all work aside, the joy of thanksgiving had already started to take over.

So, in the post-game interview, Bron was asked how he plans on celebrating this lovely occasion. “The plan with the family is to break bread, be thankful of our loved ones. Be thankful for the opportunity to be able to wake up and be in the presence of your loved ones and give all our thanks to the man above. Watch some football, have first and seconds, get back up, eat some more and get ready for Friday,” he said.

However, he also jokingly added, “Hope there’s some wine too.”

The last, most memorable Thanksgiving celebration of Bron’s that had made headlines was the one back in 2016. He had called his Miami Heat team to his Ohio house for the lavish meal. And pictures of everyone catching up on some sleep after a full stomach had gone viral.

This is a much-needed break for all NBA players, let alone the 36-year-old. The Lakers are to lock horns with the Sacramento Kings next, which should be the perfect opportunity for them to get started with a winning streak.
