Ingram, Rondo and Paul were ejected and can expect heavy fines as well as possible suspensions.

The suspensions for Ingram, Rondo and Paul are truly surprising considering everything that took place between the lines Saturday.

If the fist fight itself was not so focused on the individuals I would understand there not being some sort of tension.

Lakers fans were intrigued to see how well James would mesh with his young teammates, and how much he can help them improve on their dismal 35-47 record of a year ago. Then, Ingram runs out of nowhere and lands a cheap shot on Paul. "I think we take this opportunity tonight to go over the things we could have done better and be frustrated", he said.
