LeBron James is apparently still unhappy with Atlanta Hawks forward Solomon Hill.
Back in March during the Lakers-Hawks game, LeBron suffered an ankle injury after Hill collided with the Lakers superstar’s legs while trying to grab a loose ball.

Since then LeBron has been in and out of the lineup due to the injury which has cost his team a ton of wins and eventually led to the Lakers being forced to play in a play-in game with the Warriors on Wednesday night.
After the Lakers’ final regular-season game on Sunday, LeBron let out some of his frustrations about the Hill incident. According to LeBron, he was having the best career of the season until he had a “grown man diving at my leg for a loose ball.”
LeBron said he was playing some of the best ball of his career before the ankle injury.
“I had a grown man diving at my leg for a loose ball.”
Said there is frustration about what could have been that he’s tried not to focus upon. But defending title obviously the big goal.
