LeBron James posts video of being misjudged round, insinuating Tatum’s hat
In yesterday’s NBA regular season focus game, the Lakers went to an away game to challenge the Celtics. The two teams decided the winner after overtime. On the final attack of the final quarter, James was hit by Tatum in the arm for a layup, but was ignored by the referee, which eventually caused James to fail to complete the lore. The penalty also caused huge controversy.
James updated his social media today, posting yesterday’s Lakers VS Celtics last round where Tatum fouled him but was misjudged. James wrote in the accompanying text: “Good hat @ Tatum.” At the same time James also included five emoticons with different expressions. Tatum also replied to this: “The impression of last night is very vague…a great game champion.” It is worth mentioning that before that, James has updated social media twice, very dissatisfied with the referee’s penalty .
According to today’s referee report, in the last 1.2 seconds of the fourth quarter of the game, James broke through with the ball and went to the basket. Tatum touched James’ arm during the defense. This should be a thug foul. The NBA referee officials also apologized for this. They wrote on social media: “Referees make mistakes like everyone else. Last night’s final missed judgment was painful for us. This game will bring us There is a lot of pressure and we will try to be the best referees possible.”
According to statistics, in the past two weeks, the Lakers have made controversial moves at critical moments four times, but none of them were whistled by the referee. They were against the Mavericks, Philadelphia 76ers, Kings and Celtics. If the Lakers win these four games, their current record ranking will rise to fourth in the Western Conference.
