Chalmers – a usual target of team abuse and yelling – reportedly committed a turnover, missed a three-pointer and committed two fouls during a two-minute span of the third quarter.
This, apparently, triggered off a heated exchange between the two players and LeBron suddenly pounced on Chalmers, getting off his bench.
After the game, LeBron tweeted that there was no bad blood between him and Chalmers and both had sorted it out.
I love @mchalmers15 like a blood brother! I was wrong and apologized to him! We good and will always be good. I ride wit him any & every day— LeBron James (@KingJames) December 19, 2013
Chalmers corroborated the tweet.
All good big bro @KingJames. At the end of the day we brothas and nothin gonna change that— Mario Chalmers (@mchalmers15) December 19, 2013
This isn’t the first time LeBron James tried to intimidate Mario Chalmers. Last year, he told the team’s scapegoat to stop celebrating and start scoring more. Here’s a GIF:
One wonders what King James might’ve done to Tony Romo who threw two interceptions against the opposite team… and helped them win.
