Louisiana sports fans got quite an eyeful last week when watching game four of the NBA finals. During a tense moment in the game, superstar LeBron James fell into a broadcast camera during a play and received several cuts to his head. Fans held their breath as James fell onto the floor holding his head. Ultimately, the injury, did not stop LeBron from finishing the game. After pulling himself up off of the floor, LeBron had his cuts glued so that he could continue playing. To help him along, the crowd was treated to a heart-warming kiss from Lebron’s mother after the incident.
However, this was not all that happened during the NBA finals game. Evidently, another rather unsavory event was also recorded during the game between the Lebron’s team the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. The broadcast channel ABC reportedly also showed LeBron privates. Allegedly, fans reported that the cringe-inducing event happened during a filing spot wherein ABC showed LeBron adjusting his shorts.
In the end, the fourth game of the popular NBA series proved to be very competitive and fans got their money’s worth despite LeBron’s unfortunate drama during the game. Many fans in the Louisiana area and across the nation are now placing bets as to whether LeBron’s headband will make a comeback now that his has a head injury.
