It was an exciting Tuesday night in the NBA as we saw a few intense matchups around the league. One of the most interesting games was played in Cleveland, as the Cavs hosted the Miami Heat. Cleveland entered this matchup having won eight straight games, while the Heat were on a three-game winning streak of their own. It was also a big game for Dwyane Wade as he faced his former team, the Miami Heat, for the first time since he joined the Cavaliers. It ended up being a pretty one-sided affair, as the Cavaliers celebrated an easy 108-97 victory. But it was something that happened during the game that rose some eyebrows around the league.

LeBron ejected for the first time in his career

During the third quarter of the Cavs vs. Heat game, something very interesting happened. In fact, it was the first time it ever happened. With two minutes left to play in the third period of the game, LeBron James drove to the rim and got bumped, but there was no foul called. James was angry he didn't get the call that would've sent him to the line to shoot free throws, so he started protesting and yelling at the referee. It was evident that James was pretty angry and unhappy with the no-call, and his reaction was passionate. The referee gave him two quick technical fouls and threw him out of the game. It was the first time ever in James' career that he got ejected from a game.

LeBron finished the game with 21 points, 12 rebounds and six assists in 28 minutes of action. But if you thought that was the end of the drama, you would be wrong. Ater the game, Enes Kanter of the New York Knicks had something to say about LeBron's ejection.

Kanter trolls LeBron on Twitter

Enes Kanter, the starting center for the New York Knicks, apparently just doesn't like LeBron James at all.

The two of them went at it earlier this month when the Knicks hosted the Cavaliers in New York. Kanter and James exchanged some words during that game, and the tension was obvious.

After LeBron got ejected on Tuesday, Kanter took the opportunity to troll the four-time league MVP on Twitter. Kanter called Kane Fitzgerald, the referee who ejected LeBron from the game, the "King of Cleveland." Take a look:

It was obviously a jab at LeBron and his recent post on social media when he (James) called himself "The King of New York." It will be interesting to see if LeBron responds to Kanter's comments, but it seems we have a new, individual rivalry in the NBA. If the Knicks make it to the playoffs this season and face the Cavaliers, we should expect LeBron to have some special performances against Kanter and his Knicks.
