Sunday saw Isaiah Stewart lose his composure in an altercation with Lebron James. The usually respectful and hard-working Stewart had an outburst after getting into a scrap with James in a box-out. During the entanglement, James accidentally hit Stewart with a stray elbow causing Stewart to start bleeding. Following this, Stewart began attempting to confront and chase the star athlete.
After being led off the court, Stewart tried to make a charge at James through security and other players but was restrained before any further damage was done.
This is 20-year-old Stewart’s second year on the professional court and he has quickly become a fan-favorite in the Piston’s hometown of Detroit. Despite this, the player is still a relative unknown among the wider fanbase and in danger of allowing this to become his defining moment.
