On Thursday night, LeBron James was knocked out of the NBA Playoffs in the opening round for the first time in his NBA career as the Phoenix Suns defeated James’ Los Angeles Lakers by a score of 113-100 to win the series four games to two.
Following the game, rather than shaking hands with the Suns, LeBron decided to imitate the Detroit Pistons Bad Boys team that lost to Michael Jordan’s Bulls as he walked off the court without saying a word to any of the Suns’ players.
Check it out.

To be fair, James did meet up with Suns star Devin Booker after the game and gave him a signed jersey.
