Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a story about Thunder center Kendrick Perkins taking umbrage with Lebron James over his Twitter remarks after he got posterized by Clippers forward Blake Griffin.
As you may figure, Lebron when asked about the remarks decided to defend his actions and state that he saw himself as an easy target after by comments from both Larry Bird and Kendrick Perkins:
“I would never apologize about anything like that when I’m connecting to my fans,” James said. “Did I call him out? I mean, did you read the tweet? Did I call him out? I can see why he felt embarrassed. I don’t think I was the only one to react to the unbelievable play by Blake and that’s what it was all about.”
“If someone wants to get a point across — just throw LeBron’s name in there,” James said after the team’s loss to Orlando on Wednesday night. “You could be watching cartoons with your kids and you don’t like it, you say, ‘Blame it on LeBron.’ If you go to the grocery story and they don’t have the milk that you like, you just say, ‘It’s LeBron’s fault.”
