LBJ is fum­ing! The King him­self, LeBron James, is call­ing out the Indi­ana Pac­ers for a con­tro­ver­sial deci­sion in their nail-bit­ing Game 1 loss to the Boston Celtics.

Pac­ers Upset, Celtics Clutch Shot Sends Game to OT

Indi­ana had the lead with sec­onds tick­ing down, but a clutch three by Celtics’ Jaylen Brown tied the game and forced over­time. Boston even­tu­al­ly pulled off the win, 133–128.

LeBron Says “FOUL THEM!!”

LeBron, a long-time advo­cate for foul­ing when lead­ing by three late in games, took to social media to blast the Pac­ers’ strat­e­gy. “Why I ALWAYS foul up 3?!” he post­ed, clear­ly frustrated.

The “Mind the Game” Breakdown

James even shared a clip from his pod­cast where he, along­side co-host J.J. Redick, dis­cussed the val­ue of foul­ing up by three. LeBron goes all-in, say­ing he’d foul “before they even cross half­court” to avoid a game-tying three.

Pac­ers Coach Takes the Blame

Indi­ana’s coach, Rick Carlisle, owned the loss, admit­ting they should’ve called a time­out and secured free throws instead.

LeBron Sparks Debate: To Foul or Not to Foul?

James’ crit­i­cism reignites the debate on late-game foul­ing tac­tics. The Pac­ers’ deci­sion might’ve cost them dear­ly, giv­ing the Celtics a cru­cial win at home. âŒ
