With the Los Angeles Lakers in Cleveland and rumours running rampant that LA is one of the possible destinations for LeBron James when he’s a free agent in the summer of 2018, the media would have been licking their lips.

That is until James threw a curve ball of his own … by refusing to speak to the media.

Unless he is injured, James always makes himself available to the media so this is unusual for the King.

To add fuel to the fire, as first reported on Cleveland.com; James and Lonzo Ball’s dad, LaVar, were engaged in an intriguing back and forth through the media last season over LaVar’s comments about his sons being better professional prospects than James’ sons.

Either way, James wasn’t talking.

“Draw your own conclusions,” was a Cavs spokesman’s explanation.
