LeBron James cracked a joke about being ejected from a game for the time in his career. But everybody else is like – It’s about time! In other news, Timbaland opens up about almost overdosing on OxyCotin. More inside…
Well here’s a first.
Since LeBron James entered the NBA in 2003, he has never been ejected from a game. Y’all know he barely even gets a tech. And plenty of folks say it’s becaus eof favortism.
But that all changed last night.
Referee Kane Fitzgerald ejected King James during the match up between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Lebron’s former team, the Miami Heat. Literally 11 minutes after he was ejeced, Bron hopped on Instagram. Ha! First, he liked a post by injured NY Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. The NFLer posted a pic of King James with the caption, “Dreams unfolding.”

Shortly after liking Odell’s post, Bron made his own Instagram post to address his ejection. And what does he do? He cracks a joke! Check it:
Ha! Gotta love the social media era.
So why did the referee eject LeBron in the first place? Well, it seems LeBron’s anger got the best of him (again) and that’s what caused Kane Fitzgerald to kick him out of the game. Check it:

By the way, the Cavs still defeated the Heat, 108-97.
When the media caught up with King James, he told ESPN, “I said what I had to say and then I moved on, but (Fitzgerald) decided I should get (ejected). It is what it is. We got the win, and that’s what’s most important.”
He’s the king for a reason. There’s that.
In other news…
We almost lost another legendary producer to drugs.
Superproducer Timbaland is opening up about his battle with drug addiction and how he almost died from a drug overdose. In an new interview with Rolling Stone, the VA native opens up about the time he thought he was going to die after taking OxyCotin.
“All I can tell you is that there was a light," he confessed. "I woke up trying to catch my breath, like I was underwater. But through that whole thing I saw life – I saw where I would be if I don’t change, and where I could be if I did…I thought about Michael Jackson. I didn’t want to be old and taking these pills.”
Hip Hop mogul Jay Z even stepped in and offered up some words of advice to Timbaland.
“Music is a gift and curse,” he shared. “Once you’re not popping, it plays with your mind. The pills helped block out the noise—I’d just sleep all day. I remember Jay-Z told me one time, ‘Don’t do no more interviews’—because I was saying crazy shit.”
After almost dying from a drug overdose, Timbaland realized he had to get clean and eventually weaned himself off of the painkiller.
