“It’s something I am accustomed to,” James told “It’s something that I feel like is, that it’s okay for me to kind of always go back and know that I can refocus. I can get my guys ready, get myself ready but you hate to continue to put yourself in these positions.”

“But at the end of the day it’s still just basketball, man,” the Cavaliers’ small forward added. He said it was what gave him comfort and he was more comfortable about it because it was “just a game.”
