Lebron James Calls Out The NBA Via Twitter For Not Suspending Ibaka
Lebron James has taken ire with the League’s decision to not suspend Serge Ibaka for his groin hit on Blake Griffin in Sunday’s game. Ibaka was instead just fined $25,000 after his actions were upgraded to a level 2 foul after review.
The punishment, or lack thereof led to a backlash on social media with many scratching their head over the lenient ruling. Lebron James himself, couldn’t resist the urge to voice his two cents on the matter:
So explain to me the difference? My teammate gets a 1 game suspension and 150k+ taking away from him for his groin altercation #strangetome

Lebron made reference to the 1 game suspension levied against teammate Dwyane Wade for his groin kick on Bobcats guard Ramon Sessions.
