And that was about the extent of how far James was willing to discuss the topic following Thursday’s practice at Cleveland Clinic Courts.
After his quick retort to the reporter’s question, James was asked if the pair of tweets was aimed at any of his teammates.
He once again replied, “No.”
The exchange was in response to his original tweets from Tuesday, which stated: It’s ok to know you’ve made a mistake. Cause we all do at times. Just be ready to live with whatever that comes with it and be with….. those who will protect you at all cost!”
And if you believe his responses may have lost something in translation, you can watch his quick answers here:
James’ twitter was not the only internet controversy created over the Cavs’ recent two off days. During their brief break, James worked out with his close friend and ex-teammate Dwyane Wade in Miami, causing the twitterverse to explode in all sorts of theories about why.
James was asked if he understands why it became a story.
“Yeah, I don’t care,” he said.
LeBron was asked why he makes periodic trips to Miami.
“Because I want to,” he said. “I would love to go to [Los Angeles], but I’ll take 2 1/2 [hours] over 4 1/2 [hours]. I’ve got a house in LA but it makes more sense for me to go south than go west. But I go because I want to.”
After circling back for more clarification on his tweets — which James once again said were not directed at a teammate — the 31-year-old guard offered this final response before leaving the media scrum: “That’s cool? I’m OK to leave when I want to leave? Be back at my work on time, two hours before? OK. Last one to leave the gym. OK. Thank you. Love you guys.”
Love is probably one of the last words anyone would use to describe the entire exchange.
The Cavs welcome the Washington Wizards on Friday night at Quicken Loans Arena. If you are not able to watch the game, perhaps you can read about it on twitter.
