Anthony Kiedis booted from LA Lakers game after verbal spat

Anthony Kiedis booted from LA Lakers game after verbal spat

It's a well-known fact that the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis is fond of California.

Following the game, Kiedis' bandmate Flea took to Instagram to weigh in on the incident.

"All I cared about was trying to get the thing over with so we could get back to the game", James said. "Cerebral, physical, spiritual, emotional, unspoken and telepathic communication".

It's not easy to recognize the mustachioed Kiedis, who has traded in the long hair that made him so recognizable in the 1990s for a hipster haircut and was wearing full Lakers garb over, we presume, one sock.

Ingram was suspended four games, Rondo will sit out three games and Paul two games.

L.A. will be without Ingram and Rondo's services Following Saturday's on-court altercation, Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo have been suspended for four and three games, respectively.

The trio of National Basketball Association players weren't the only big names to get tossed for their actions. He began serving his suspension Sunday night (Monday NZT) and wasn't at the arena when the Rockets played the Clippers.

Footage has since emerged showing Lakers star Rondo spitting at Paul, sparking the ugly confrontation between the pair. The real action started when Chris Paul threw his finger directly into Rajon Rondo's face after taking offense to Rondo's saliva.

Rondo followed with the first punch - a left hook that connected with Paul's cheek - and the Rockets point guard responded in kind.

Ingram was given two technicals, one for starting the fiasco by pushing Harden in the back and the other for a sucker punch from behind on an unsuspecting Rockets player as he charged back into the kerfuffle for round two.

Rondo's teammates said they didn't know whether Paul's claim was accurate. LeBron James advertisements were everywhere, broadcast networks had "LeBron's home debut with Lakers" on the bottom of the screen for days and their opponent, the Houston Rockets, was a game away from defeating the Warriors dynasty last postseason.

The Athletic said that a member of Rondo's family "confronted" Jada.
