LeBron James Shoves Coach David Blatt To Continue Argument With Ref (Video)

LeBron James might have summed up his return to Cleveland so far in a metaphorical way Tuesday night.

James returned from a two-week absence in dealing with knee and back injuries, and the Cavs did the same thing they did without the superstar: they lost.

One of the oddest sights coming out of James’ return — a loss to the Phoenix Suns — came between the superstar and head coach David Blatt.

James was ticked off in the second quarter when he was called for a questionable offensive call. He quickly went right at the referee and got in his face. Blatt, clearly sensing his best player was about to be hit with at least one technical, stepped in to try and protect James.

James wasn’t done with the referee, though, so he just shoved Blatt aside to continue his argument.

Apparently everything’s all good between the two, though.

Regardless, the Cavs’ struggles continued Tuesday night. Cleveland’s losing streak reached six games, and the Cavs are 1-9 in their last 10 games, dropping them under .500 and to third place in the Central Division.
