There is no doubt that sometimes there are times when players get angry during a game. That can be due to a variety of factors, such as an opponent's actions or their own team's performance. 

Recently, LeBron James was frustrated during the game against the Toronto Raptors, due to the Los Angeles Lakers performing poorly. A video circulated during the game, where we could see LeBron James visibly angry at the way the game was going for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Another video has recently gotten heavily shared on Twitter, which showed LeBron James throwing a ball at Raptors rookie Scottie Barnes, while he was on the ground. The move was clearly done as an attempt to save the ball from going out of bounds, but some also suggested that it seemed as though LeBron James was taking out his frustration on the rookie.

It is clear that though LeBron James made a good basketball play, the throw at Scottie Barnes seemed a little forceful. However, the rookie seemed to be alright after the play, and it is clear that he didn't get hurt seriously.

The Los Angeles Lakers ended up losing the game, and it's quite obvious that they need to make some changes if they are to finish the season strong. Hopefully, we see some sort of improvement from them in the coming weeks, but it's hard to imagine the sort of drastic turnaround happening that would allow them to compete with the other heavyweights in the Western Conference.

It remains to be seen if the Los Angeles Lakers will end up being a playoff team this year. They could still potentially get to the postseason via the play-in tournament. Perhaps we'll see them make it there, but they need to improve in a lot of areas to do so.
