INDEPENDENCE, OH (WOIO) - LeBron James isn't buying in to the Pistons' claims that he gets all the calls from the officials, and he made it clear on Tuesday that he isn't about to change his approach.
"I would never change my game, no matter what a player or coach said," James told reporters following the Cavaliers practice. "My main thing is how I can help my team win. I think it's a non-issue."
Well, not to the Pistons, who complained during the game (head coach Stan Van Gundy was fined $25,000), and after it as well (Stanley Johnson wasn't quiet).
"At the end of the day it's not about me versus Stanley Johnson, or me versus Stan (Van Gundy), it's about Cavs versus Pistons," James said Tuesday. "I'm trying to help this team advance and get another home win so we can protect home."
Maybe it's a matter of maturity. The Pistons are young. James has been there and done it many, many times.
"Listen, I'm 31 years old," James said. "I don't get caught up in no shenanigans."
