LeBron James takes hard foul but doesn't get call (GIF)


The Miami Heat are taking on the Los Angeles Lakers in front of what looks to be five people, but that hasn’t stopped the game from getting intense early on. LeBron James is playing without Dwyane Wade, which actually had some people believing that the Heat might struggle against the lowly Lakers.

If Los Angeles wants to win, they’re going to have to play tough and have some calls go their way, and that has started to happen right off the bat.

Early on, LeBron James took a hard foul but saw no call made. He sold it and sold it and sold it some more, but the call never came.

Maybe he was selling a little too hard, but the could was pretty hard as well and this is clearly being set up to be a physical game.
