LeBron James angry at being target of hard fouls

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James insists that he may need to protect himself from hard fouls in future.

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James has revealed that he is frustrated by being the recipient of hard, non-basketball fouls in recent games.

James was the victim of a second flagrant foul in his past three games on Wednesday night against the Toronto Raptors, and admits that he may have to start protecting himself by retaliating.

"Maybe I got to protect myself a little bit more, too," he said, ESPN reports.

"I don't want to get too much involved in it because I don't want to cry about it because it's not like I'm not able to get back up, but it's a lot of plays that are just not basketball plays."

Cavs coach David Blatt claims that opposing teams wrongly get away with fouls against the two-time NBA champion because of his strength and aggressiveness.
