    Westbrook didn't get ejected only because LeBron got right back up. He'll probably get suspended one game once the league reviews the tape.

    It don't think it was maliciously, just a dumb foul that was a little too late, but it looked terrible. Lebron was really lucky.

    Uuhhhh....

    He grabbed his shoulder?

    Am I missing something? I wanted this to be awesome so I'd like Westbrook more, but it was a touch-flagrant? Big deal.




    Lebron does more damage than this every time he charges down the lane to others.

    If he gets suspended for that, I quit watching NBA basketball.


    They aren't allowed to play defense anymore. This is a typical flagrant foul in college.

    It's probably because it was a flagrant...

    he had no chance of blocking that shot so he just went at him.

    Uuhhhh you are missing something. His left hand is on Jame's shoulder and he pulls him sideways which makes the landing more awkward. Watch it again, he starts pulling the shoulder around 39 seconds into it.

    Yeah... he can't block the shot so he just grabs his shoulder...


    Lebron's landing is the only thing that makes it look bad.
