The suspension is a first for James. He has never been suspended before in his career.
“Everyone in the league knows LeBron’s not a dirty guy,” Anthony Davis said per ESPN after the game. “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.'”
Lakers’ coach Frank Vogel said: “[James] had an elbow [from Stewart] to the rib cage, which was a foul and he was trying to shed the contact. And had incidental contact that was obviously enough for a flagrant 2.
