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.
