Being one of the biggest stars in the NBA comes with its benefits, and LeBron James proved that when he got away with a blatant travel in Wednesday’s game against the Utah Jazz.
Fans got a bit of a laugh shortly following the travel when Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic emphatically pleaded for a call to be made.

James has had an interesting relationship with NBA officials as of late. While he is often vocal about the lack of calls he believes he deserves when approaching the basket, he also certainly gets the benefit of the doubt on occasions such as this one.
Wednesday night’s game versus the Jazz marks the midway point of a three-game road trip. Up next, they’ll head to Portland to take on the Trail Blazers.
After that, they’ll return to L.A. for just one game before embarking on a grueling five-game Eastern Conference road trip.
