“He knows they value him. That’s definitely something he values,” Conley said. “(Clifford) allows him to be the player he can be.” Conley, father of Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley, Jr., is more than just McRoberts’ agent. He was McRoberts’ AAU coach on an Indianapolis-based team that included Conley’s son and center Greg Oden. Charlotte Observer

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."
