“(Referee) look right at me and said, ‘I didn’t see a foul.’ Man what! I give up man,” James wrote.

The incident occurred in the third quarter as James was being defended by Trail Blazers rookie Scoot Henderson. The guard appeared to take the ball away from James, and the Lakers star lost control of it as it went out of bounds.

He finished the game with 28 points.

The Lakers are set to play the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night. James was already ruled out of the game due to an ankle injury.
