Solomon Hill issues statement after backlash for LeBron James play

Solomon Hill LeBron James

Solomon Hill issued a statement on Twitter Saturday after receiving negative attention for his play that injured LeBron James.

The Atlanta Hawks forward collided with James during the second quarter of Saturday’s game against the Lakers. Hill rolled into James’ right ankle, causing LeBron to leave the game (video here). James underwent an MRI and has since been determined to have a high ankle sprain.

Hill defended himself and assured everyone that nothing he did was intentional.

Few objective observers would look at the play and think Hill was trying to injure James. However, that didn’t stop some Lakers players from being upset about it.

The collision and contact seemed incidental and not intentional. We’ve seen much worse when it comes to questionable plays.
