NBA announces punishment for LeBron James after his big balls celebration vs. Indiana Pacers

LeBron James Lakers

Late in the Los Angeles Lakers’ Wednesday win over the Indiana Pacers, LeBron James broke out a provocative dance after making a big 3-pointer down the stretch.

The NBA apparently felt the dance was too obscene and has disciplined James as a result.

The game against the Pacers started out the way too many have for the Lakers this season – with a double digit deficit.

But with James back in the lineup – he was suspended for their previous game and had also missed several games earlier due to an ab injury – the Lakers rallied.

The four-time MVP put up 39 points as L.A. outlasted Indiana in overtime, and he got plenty of help from the bench, in particular Malik Monk and Wayne Ellington.

It was a much-needed win for the Lakers, and with their record at just 10-10, they will likely have numerous other must-win games in the near future.
