LeBron James had a very quick reaction after his fight with Isaiah Stewart. The Los Angeles Lakers are a bad basketball team right now. There really isn’t a way to get around that fact as they have looked average or worse from the time the NBA season started. It did not help that the Lakers were missing their leader for a large part of the early season but it still is not an excuse for them to look as bad as they have thus far.
But the play on the court was not the biggest story of the game against the Pistons the other night. Instead, there was a bit of a fight that broke out between the two teams. It all happened after LeBron elbowed Isaiah Stewart during a free throw. Stewart did not take to this well and started a pretty big fight between the two teams.
It was ended pretty quickly but there was a lot said after the fact. Anthony Davis talked about it after the game. Apparently, LeBron was apologetic after the play.

Apparently, the Lakers were able to use some of the frustration after the fight happened as they came back from 15 points down.
“Everybody’s level went up when LB came out,” Davis said.
“Everyone in the league knows LeBron’s not a dirty guy,” Lakers big man Anthony Davis said. “In fact, when he knew he hit him, as soon as he did it, he looked back at him like, ‘Oh, my bad. I didn’t try to do it.'”
“I don’t know what he was trying to do,” Davis said. “But I know nobody on our team, 1 through 15, was having it. We’re going to protect our brother. I’ve never, in 10 years, seen a player try to do that as long as I’ve been playing. … It’s uncalled for. You got a cut above your eye, accidental-like, it wasn’t on purpose. And we weren’t going to allow him to keep charging our brother like that. I don’t know what he was trying to do, but we wasn’t going to allow that.”
