LeBron James after tweaking his ankle by stepping on cameraman: ‘His foot was out further than it should be’


LeBron James tweaked his ankle early in the third quarter of his team’s Game 1 win over the Hawks, after appearing to trip over someone who was situated on the sidelines.

That person was a cameraman, according to James, who said afterward that the person’s foot was out further than it should have been.

It’s inconclusive from the video that was presented, but we’ll go ahead and take LeBron’s word for it.

Either way, player safety should be at the forefront of any decisions made to have cameramen on the sidelines or along the baseline, and we as fans would do just fine without the pictures provided from that angle as long as the game’s best players remained injury-free.
