Pacers fans react after LeBron James helped get 2 fans kicked out – WISH-TV | Indianapolis News | Weather in Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – What exactly did two Indiana Pacers fans say Wednesday night that got them thrown out of the game against the Los Angeles Lakers?

It’s the issue that is blowing up on social media around the country, primarily because LeBron James asked to have fans removed.

Theories, some from people claiming to have been in the game, abound about what was said. The expulsion of the fans came with less than 2-1 / 2 minutes left of overtime after James asked the referee and the Gainbridge Fieldhouse security guard to remove a man and woman sitting on the pitch.

The woman’s face is a meme in the cast: her sad gaze as she pretends to wipe the tears from her eyes.

Their names are still not publicly known.

News 8 contacted the Pacers for a statement, saying, “Officials made the decision to remove the fans for violating the Fan Code of Conduct. Security helped remove the fans from the playing field without further incident.”

A few basketball fans around the country have used social media to start calling LeBron “LeSnitch.”

Wednesday night’s match was LeBron’s first after serving an exclusion of one match for match.

After the Lakers’ victory over the Pacers, James told the media: “To buh to opponents and that sort of thing or not want your opponents to be successful, and then there are moments where it goes outside the line without seeing gestures and words, and it should not be tolerated in our game by anyone. “

Erick Marquez Jr. participated in the fight. “I said to myself, ‘Man, they must have said something he did not like’ otherwise they could have touched the basketball players or something like that, but I knew that when they were thrown out, it was not good.”

Marquez added: “Part of going to these matches, and what makes these matches fun against our biggest rivals, is that you get to mock them, and in general that heckling is within the confines and limits of basketball.”

Gus Ochoa, a resident of Indianapolis, said of the fans: “We understand the view that you always try to feel like the players from the opposite team, that they are not welcome, but there are ways to do it.”

Pacers fans have also expressed anger over LeBron’s celebration after hitting a game-sealing shot. He grabbed himself as he ran down the track.
