After Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James was ejected for the first time in his career during Tuesday’s 108-97 win over the Miami Heat, he took to social media and made light of the situation.

"Guess we'll call these 'The Ejected Game' Soldier 11 colorway. Another great win tonight! We're going Streaking!! In my Will Ferrell(Old School) voice. #StriveForGreatness," James captioned his Instagram photo.

James, 32, was ejected by referee Kane Fitzgerald, his first toss in his 15-year career. The ejection occurred after James approached the referee with grievances regarding a previous play in which he felt he was fouled. He appeared to make hand gestures and followed Fitzgerald, who then issued a technical foul, tossing James out of the game.

"I got fouled and showed my frustration to the ref, and he sent me to the locker room," James said after the game. "That particular play, I got fouled all the way up the court. That's what it was about. I said what I had to say and I moved on, but he decided I should get (ejected). We got the win, that's what's most important."

Fitzgerald, after the game, explained what led up to the ejection.

"It was a culmination of a couple different acts," Fitzgerald said. "Immediately after the no-call, he turned and threw an air punch directly at me, and then he aggressively charged at me, and then he used vulgarity in my ear a few times."

James averages 10.8 drives to the basket per game this season, according to NBA Stats. However, he currently has the lowest free-throw rate of his career at .282, which could pose an issue for a player who is constantly banging in the paint and not receiving free throws. James finished the game with 21 points, 12 rebounds, six assists in 29 minutes, but only attempted one free throw.

"I think I'm one of the league leaders in points in the paint," James said. “I drive just as much as anybody. At this point, it's almost like they're trying to turn me into a jump shooter, I can't be a jump shooter. I'm not a jump shooter."

Despite not having James on the court, the Cavaliers defeated the Heat, pushing their win streak to nine games. They now sit at fourth in the Eastern Conference. The Cavs will take on the Atlanta Hawks Thursday at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
