SLAM: The way information spreads these days leads to a ton of noise around basically every single thing you do. What do you do to block that out and just focus on the things that matter? LeBron: I really don’t get involved in it, man. If I send out a tweet, I don’t read comments. I don’t go in to look at how many—what is it, retweets, or likes, or whatever it’s called. If I send out an Instagram post, I don’t really check to see how many likes I get. When I send something out, it’s either from the passion of how I’m feeling or what I think needs to be said. I know it’s a lot of noise out there, but it’s all white noise to me. I don’t really get involved in it and I don’t really pay attention to it.

Phoenix rookie Josh Jackson got caught making a very strange gesture towards a heckling fan during the Suns’ 130-88 road loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday. Many people assumed he was making a trigger-pulling motion almost like he was shooting a gun. Jackson has cleared up the air however and clarified that he was not making a gun motion towards the fan. He was actually trying to flip them the bird, but he felt like he was being watched so he gave them a halfhearted version of it instead. He also doesn’t regret it, because if fans are going to heckle then they’re inviting a response.
