Have you ever seen LeBron James get so angry that went after a teammate and had to be restrained? It’s not often that happens, but it did on Wednesday night during the Miami Heat-Indiana Pacers game.
James went after Mario Chalmers during a timeout in the second half of Miami’s 97-94 home win over the Pacers and had to be restrained by a teammate. Was he upset with Chalmers for playing bad defense that led to Paul George hitting a wide open 3-pointer? Who knows.
What we do know is that LeBron later apologized to ‘Rio for the incident:
He also sent this public apology to Chalmers via Twitter:
I love @mchalmers15 like a blood brother! I was wrong and apologized to him! We good and will always be good. I ride wit him any & every day

When was the last time you saw LeBron get that heated at a teammate? The guy is usually so composed on the court. And he also earns more PR points for owning it and apologizing.
