For the first time in his 15-year NBA career, LeBron James was tossed from a basketball game.
It came late in the third quarter Tuesday night against the Miami Heat when James barked at official Kane Fitzgerald following a non-call. To say it was a shocking situation would be an understatement.
Twitterverse was buzzing about James being ejected. Needless to say, the reactions represented a mixed bag.

Of course, Draymond Green’s name had to be brought up. But we digress. Here are the rest of the best reactions from the always reactionary social media site.
