LeBron James Dove Into Cameraman On Purpose, Andrew Bogut Says (Video)

Andrew Bogut believes LeBron James has only himself to blame for the head wound the Cleveland Cavaliers star suffered during Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

James came up bloodied Thursday night after a Bogut foul sent him careening headfirst into a baseline cameraman during the Cavaliers’ 103-82 loss to the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors big man, however, provided a different explanation for James’ tumble.

From USA Today’s Sam Amick:

“I think he jumped into the cameraman,” Bogut said when asked to give his perspective on the play. “Yeah, I think he came down and took two steps and then fell into the cameraman. I definitely, definitely didn’t hit him that hard.”

When the reporter replied by saying, “That’s how you saw it?” Bogut said, “No, that’s how it was. If you look at the replay, you can see the two steps being taken and then him falling into the camera. That’s what we saw on the replay, and that’s what my teammates saw.”

Did James embellish his fall a bit? You be the judge:
