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.
