In case you think the additional information has LeBron rethinking his position…
For the first time in memory, James didn’t take questions from reporters, and instead issued a 25-second statement in which he praised his team for going 3-1 on the road trip and Russell Westbrook (who registered a triple-double with 29 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists).
A media relations official asked reporters to disperse from James’ locker, while the player headed toward the shower. But then he came back and shouted: “Oh, I missed one. Charles Oakley for president.”
LeBron also said he called to Oakley to check on him. Oakley has been around the Cavaliers organization in recent years and developed a relationship with LeBron.
We still don’t know exactly what happened Wednesday, but it’s becoming increasingly clear where sympathies lie in the Knicks-Oakley feud.
