“I tried to swim move down on his arm, the left side of my hand grazed his face. I knew right away…I went over to apologize to him, and you guys see what happened after that. Definitely accidental…definitely not that type of player. I hated to see that, what escalated after that.”
At this point, everyone from Washington Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma to Brooklyn Nets big man Blake Griffin has weighed in on that little squabble, so it’s good that James finally weighed in with his thoughts on the matter.
Now that the dust has settled, suspensions have been served and all the necessary information is out there – hopefully everyone involved can just move on with their lives.
