The Friday night "nickname game" between the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets took a turn for the dramatic in the fourth quarter, when LeBron "King" James got into a scuffle following a foul from Mirza "MT3" Teletovic.

 

James was originally called for an offensive foul for pushing Andrei Kirilenko. Then, as he ran in for a layup, James was wrapped up by Teletovic. James clearly took offense, and a brief scuffle ensued. 

According to Andy Vasquez of The Record, Teletovic's reaction to James' histrionics was one of amusement.

The reaction of Twitter came swiftly and strongly.

Teletovic was charged with a flagrant foul.
