LeBron James doesn't care about the fight and jokes about him and Chris Paul "not being friends anymore"

The incident between Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo, and Brandon Ingram was the most talked about topic in the last couple of days among the NBA community. Everyone had different opinions about the whole situation and all the players involved got suspended and also getting substantial financial penalties from the league.

LeBron James also waived in on the whole situation based on the fact Chris Paul is his close friend while at the same time Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo are his teammates.

In a recent statement, he mentioned who he can't wait for the whole thing to get over with and how everyone should stay focused on the game.

“Nah, all I cared about was trying to get the thing over with so we could get back to the game. That was all on my mind at the end of the day. Separate the whole altercation and help the referees out.”Nah, actually we’re not friends anymore.”

Lakers should definitely focus on the upcoming games ahead of them because they didn't start the season they probably wanted to go 0-2. The whole problem with suspended Rondo and Ingram won't help their cause because they lost two starters.

It was announced Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma will take their place in the starting lineups tonight in a game against San Antonio Spurs. Lebron seemed confident they would be good whoever plays with him.

“I didn’t think anything of (the suspensions.) That’s the rule. That’s how the league came down so next man up. Everybody has to do their job and whoever’s gonna get more minutes than what they usually get will have to do their role and do their job.”

Don't forget, this is LeBron's 15th year in the league and fights is definitely something he saw before so he is not predominantly worried about the whole incident.
