“Sucks that it was him, too,” James said. “I like him. I’ve been talking to him since he was in high school.”
James was driving the rim when McLemore tried to take the charge.
“Just knowing LeBron, I knew they weren’t going to call that,” he said, according to The Palm Beach Post. “I was just playing my defensive principles- going in, being the low man and taking the charge. Even though they didn’t call it, I didn’t let that stop me or mess my game up. I still went out there and did some things to help the team.
“I really don’t know what happened over there. I was just doing my defensive principles on the weakside low man. I just went over there to try to take the charge. He dunked the ball. Afterwards, I thought I should have fouled him.”
