LeBron James is back from serving a one-game suspension but most know that fans will continue to heckle him, probably worse than before.

Aware of that, the four-time NBA champion technically had the last laugh especially against a couple of fans who were seated at courtside at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse on Wednesday, Nov. 24.

The Lakers and the Pacers were battling in overtime when James suddenly pulled a referee and pointed to the couple seated at courtside.

Initially, the two played innocent to show that they were innocent. Both were escorted out of the arena and hardly showed remorse. The female fan could be seen exiting with a sarcastic pout and crying gesture that confirmed both knew why they were getting tossed out of the building.

That incident halted the game at the 2:29 mark. Los Angeles went to win the game thanks to a big night from the 36-year-old. James finished with a game-high 39 points on 13 of 29 shooting. James also had six assists and five rebounds.

The actual words that the tossed fans made have yet to be known. Regardless, James simply explained that the uttered words were something that no fan should say to a player. However, an unnamed fan claims that the remarks regarding the Lakers’ star’s son Bronny James.

“I was excited about being in the lineup,” James said. “Me not playing last night on the second night of a back to back, I knew I could kind of give our guys a boost of energy with me not playing last night.”

The Lakers played sans Anthony Davis who sat out the game due to fever. They will face the Sacramento Kings on Friday, Nov. 26. But the game that is likely to be awaited by most is the one with the Detroit Pistons on Nov. 28 at the Staples Center.

James will come face-to-face again with Isaiah Stewart, the same player he left in a bloody mess that resulted in his one-game suspension.

Stewart, who has served out his two-game suspension, will also be back in action, making the Sunday showdown pretty interesting to watch.
