LeBron James and Jayson Tatum had a crazy exchange on Instagram after the incredible missed call


LeBron James and Jayson Tatum had a crazy exchange on Instagram after the missed call incident that took place when the Los Angeles Lakers visited the Boston Celtics on Saturday.

The Los Angeles Lakers have just not been able to get along with NBA officials this season. While there were a number of debatable decisions going against them already before the latest and most infamous one, Sunday’s meeting between the Lakers and rivals Boston Celtics put up the latest in a long list of unjust refereeing decisions that always seem to have gone against them.

With the Lakers leading by three points with four seconds to go, Jaylen Brown made a layup that cut the Lakers’ lead to one. The play still left the Lakers with the ball and the lead – however, in a strange twist, Patrick Beverley was called for one of the latest fouls one will ever see. And just when Brown made the free throw, the Lakers had another opportunity to win the game – denied.

The Lakers drew up a play for LeBron James to attack the rim, and as James got into the paint and put up a layup – Jayson Tatum hit him on the arm. To James’ and the Lakers’ frustration, the referee’s whistle did not go – and the Lakers had lost yet another game courtesy of bad refereeing. The scenes after the Celtics won the game involved a LeBron James reaction that has since gone viral, as well as a Beverley technical foul where he brought a camera to the official.

The pair of James and Tatum have since had an exchange on Instagram after the incident.
