LeBron James: I Don’t Need To Make Statements
Dillon Brooks called LeBron James old after the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 2, which setup a highly anticipated matchup in Game 3.
James and Brooks had brief words before the game, and Brooks was ejected 17 seconds into the second half after the Memphis agitator struck James in the groin while guarding him near midcourt.
“I didn’t make a statement,” James said. “I’ve been doing this too long. I’m not making any statements. We had the opportunity to come home and play well on our home floor, and we did that. No statement was made. We just wanted to play well, and we got a win. I don’t need to make statements.”
