LeBron 'Malfunctions' and Commits One of the Most Blatant Travels in NBA History, Still Gets Away With It

Some NBA fans were left seething after what they perceived as excessive 'superstar treatment' by the referees for the Los Angeles Lakers star.

There are star calls, and there are superstar calls.

Last night, LeBron James was the beneficiary of a superstar call.

During the first quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers' 121-96 win over the Utah Jazz, James blatantly traveled while bringing the ball across half court.

There are star calls, and there are superstar calls.

Last night, LeBron James was the beneficiary of a superstar call.

During the first quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers' 121-96 win over the Utah Jazz, James blatantly traveled while bringing the ball across half court.

However, it went uncalled:

Microphones captured LeBron speaking to a fan about the incident later on in the game.

"Yeah, I know that was bad. That was real bad. I didn't even know I did it until I saw it at halftime. That's the worst I've ever done. Yeah, that was f—ed up. I feel bad for them though," James appears to say as he gestures towards a referee.

After the game, James told reporters, "I think I was ready to pass the ball and my brain just kind of just... I had a malfunction. I really had a malfunction."

Some NBA fans also grew upset after LeBron walked onto the court during a live ball from the Lakers' bench to celebrate a series of blocks from Kyle Kuzma—and in socks, no less:

LeBron finished with 20 points, 12 assists and 4 rebounds as the Lakers cruised to their Western Conference-best 19th victory.
