LeBron James has weighed in on the last two minute report from the Lakers 108-107 loss to Miami.
Obviously a one-point loss against LeBron’s old team Miami would have been hard to swallow regardless, but the Lakers thought there was multiple missed foul calls throughout the game.
The franchise even sent clips to the league office for further review.
However, the last two minute report came back with no missed calls, Heat beat reporter Ira Winderman confirmed.
LeBron saw the news on X and posted a response.
“The game isn’t won or lost in the last 2 mins,” James said in a post on X. “If you know the game things happen throughout the 1st, 2nd. 3rd and first 10 mins of 4th that has MAJOR impact on outcomes.”

James, who finished the night with 30 points, four rebounds, three assists, three blocks, and one steal, expressed his frustration after the game.
“What they’re telling me is not consistent with what’s actually happening on the floor,” he said.
James has had his fair share of run in’s with the referees in his 21 seasons in the league.
Who could forget last season when James received a no-call on his potential game-winning drive at the end of regulation against the Celtics.
Referee crew chief Eric Lewis admitted after the game that it was a blown call.
In a wild turn of events, Lewis has since retired from the NBA after a burner Twitter account was looked into.
He also happened to be a Celtics superfan. Very convenient.
Let’s hope today’s referees aren’t closeted Rockets fans.
