When James took an elbow to the throat from McRoberts in Game 2, Haslem was on the bench. He immediately tried to get in the game to handle it, but coach Erik Spoelstra knew better than to put him in. Later, James dissuaded him from retaliation. “LeBron came to me and told me, ‘Don’t do it. They’re gonna be watching you. It’s not worth it,’” Haslem said. “That was the end of that conversation.” Palm Beach Post

After taking the shot from McRoberts, James said his only objective was "trying to catch my breath" after getting "elbowed in the throat," so he could make his free throws. "I had no idea what the call was," James said. "I knew it was a foul, but I didn't know if it was going to be a flagrant or not. I haven't seen it again. I don't need to see it again. The most important thing is we win the game." His coach, Erik Spoelstra, said that he received an explanation from the officials for forgoing the flagrant, but "nothing that seemed rational to me."

Bobcats forward Josh McRoberts, who played on the same AAU team as Oden, said he’s kept in touch with his friend and can’t imagine going through what the former Ohio State star has encountered. “It looks like he’s still finding his rhythm,” McRoberts said. “It’s going to take him a while, he hasn’t played in a long time. If he can (return to form), I just feel like his size alone can change a game, and also his athleticism." “Everybody has a lot of respect for a guy that comes back from something like that,” McRoberts added. “It’s been a tough time with the injuries, and to stick with it, he really deserves to have success.” Sporting News

In a recent commercial to encourage Bobcats fans to donate packs of socks to needy families, Cody Zeller and Josh McRoberts put on a wonderful mini-skit using some sock puppets. The video, while pretty amusing, is definitely for a good cause and comes with an incentive: Fans who donate to the sock drive get a free ticket to the Bobcats game against the Raptors on January 20. “I feel fortunate for how I was brought up and people don’t realize socks are so important especially as the weather is getting colder here,” Zeller said in a video posted on the Bobcats’ website.
