Fans Ejected After Getting into it with LeBron James in Atlanta

Four fans sitting courtside for last night's game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Atlanta Hawks were ejected mid-way through the 4th quarter at State Farm Arena in Atlanta. Apparently, the group of fans sitting courtside were getting into it with LeBron James throughout the night and he decided to clap back. 


After dropping 21 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists with 2 steals in a Lakers win, LeBron had this to say about the incident: 

At the end of the day, I'm happy fans are back in the building. I miss that interaction. I need that interaction; we as players need that interaction. I don't feel like it was warranted to be kicked out.

And while LBJ didn't seem to mind the interaction, the fans in question - Chris & Juliana Carlos - had a different version of events. 

On another note, below are some wonderful interactions LBJ has provided courtside fans over the years.
