LeBron admits he stepped out of bounds, cracks joke at OKC's expense
LeBron James was surprisingly light-hearted following his team's latest defeat.
The Cleveland Cavaliers relinquished a 22-point advantage to the Indiana Pacers on Friday, ultimately losing 97-95. The Cavs had an opportunity to take the lead late, but James stepped out of bounds, causing a turnover with two seconds remaining.
He owned up to the error after the loss - Cleveland's third straight and eighth in its last 11 contests - and even tossed in a joke.
Definitely stepped out by a tiny bit after seeing it over again! Great call. Needed to be in OKC on that drive. Lol. Live and you Learn— LeBron James (@KingJames) January 13, 2018
James is referring to an incident two weeks ago when Milwaukee Bucks phenom Giannis Antetokounmpo got away with stepping out of bounds before converting on a game-winning dunk against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Wondering what LeBron meant by 'Needed to be in OKC on that drive' 🤔
He's referring to the time Giannis got away with a baseline call against the Thunder 👀 pic.twitter.com/oWli2hBkmY— theScore (@theScore) January 13, 2018
