It's not an everyday sight to see LeBron James getting ejected from the game. In fact, that has never happened until this Tuesday. On Tuesday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers hosted the Miami Heat looking to win their ninth straight game. The Cavs ended up winning the game comfortably 108-97, but during the game, we saw something we had never seen before.

With 2 minutes left to play in the third quarter, and with the Cavaliers in front, LeBron James drove the basketball and got blatantly fouled. The referee, however, didn't think so and didn't take LeBron's word and didn't call the foul.

James reacted aggressively towards the referee and protested, which led to him getting two quick technical fouls and eventually an ejection. It was the first ejection of LeBron's career and it took him 1082 games in the NBA to get ejected.

Irving has an interesting reaction after LeBron's ejection

LeBron's ejection was so interesting and unusual, that many players around the league commented on it. One of the players that were asked about this situation, was LeBron's former teammate Kyrie Irving. As we all well know, Irving and James were teammates in Cleveland for three seasons and they won the championship together. But this past summer, Irving requested a trade from Cleveland as he reportedly got tired of playing in James' shadow and he wanted a team for himself.

His wish was granted, as the Cavs sent Irving to the Boston Celtics, so it seems Irving and James weren't as close as everybody thought they were.

Now back to LeBron James' first career ejection. After it happened, Kyrie Irving was asked to comment on the situation at a Celtics shootaround yesterday. At first, he seemed reluctant to answer the question and just shook his head.

According to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe, he did finally comment on the situation by simply saying, "Tough calls. Some tough calls this year."

Kyrie tired of being asked about LeBron?

Irving looked seemingly frustrated at having to talk again about his former teammate, LeBron James, and his ejection.

It is apparent that, at this point, he doesn't really care anymore about what's happening in Cleveland because he's focused on leading the Boston Celtics to the best record in the Eastern Conference. The Celtics are the best team in the East right now with an 18-4 record, while the Cavaliers are third with a 14-7 record. It is very likely that we will see these two teams in the Eastern Conference Finals again this season, and it's going to be a special matchup. Irving is averaging 22.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.6 steals per game in 22 games played this season. If he can keep on playing at the highest level, and lead his Celtics to the best record in the East, many consider Kyrie to be the frontrunner for the MVP award this season.
