VIDEO: LeBron James Chucks Ball At Jermaine O'Neal, Dwyane Wade And Paul Pierce Tussle

LeBron James took a shoulder bump from Boston Celtics forward Jermaine O'Neal in Sunday's game, opting to retaliate by beaning O'Neal in the back with the basketball. James was immediately whistled for a technical, as weapons are not permitted on NBA courts even if they are standard pieces of basketball equipment.

Via @blazersedge:

This leads to a small scrum featuring some shoving and jawing, with the most notable participants being Paul Pierce and Dwyane Wade. QUESTION: if Pierce and Wade ever got in an actual fight, how quickly would it end with both combatants on the ground claiming a mortal wound? Six seconds?

The best part, of course, is the announce team's approval of James employing Calvinball rules. If you come at the King sideways, you best be prepared for him to not miss you from two feet away.
