In case you couldn't tell, in that same picture, Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo literally is in the stands. We know it's close to the bench, but yeah, that's not where players sit. 

The controversy even made Rob Perez go into full detective mode. 

You be the judge here on what really happened. No matter what, though, the Lakers (27-27) currently are the No. 10 seed in the Western Conference, and all is far from perfect during LeBron's first year in Hollywood.
