The NBA wasted little time coming down on Charlotte Bobcats player Josh McRoberts after his forearm shot to the throat of LeBron James of the Miami Heat.
The NBA upgraded the foul on McRoberts to a Flagrant 2, which means McRoberts should have been ejected from the game. The foul costs McRoberts $20,000, but he will not be suspended.
McRoberts led with his forearm when he hit LeBron late in the game. The play can be seen here.
