Inabangan at shining number! LeBron James ‘tracked down’ Isaiah Stewart
The Lakers-Pistons match became controversial following a near-brawl between LeBron James and Isaiah Stewart.
To recall, James left Stewart bloodied on the floor after the former hit the Pistons center right in the eye.
A melee happened after Stewart tried to charge the four-time MVP, which resulted in both players being ejected.
During the incident, James realized his mistake and wanted to apologize to Stewart personally.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, LeBron even tried to “track down” Stewart’s number to apologize and explain that it was an inadvertent hit.
It was ABSOLUTE CHAOS in Detroit last night Shams.
