NBA Players React to Los Angeles Lakers-Houston Rockets Brawl
- Updated: October 21, 2018
The ugly side of the NBA reared its head in a matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets in a Saturday night brawl, and players around the league couldn’t help but react.
Though the specifics are somewhat unclear, it appears that the fight began between Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo and Rockets point guard Chris Paul after Rondo spat in Paul’s face. LeBron James did play a minor role in the fight, but it was to try and act as a peacemaker moments after tempers boiled over.
Either way, it seemed stars throughout the NBA were having fun expressing their opinions on the fight on social media.

News about punishments have yet to be revealed, but there’s little doubt that NBA Twitter will have a lot to say once the league’s hammer of judgment comes down on all involved.
