He said he didn’t learn of what the Bucks had done that afternoon by seeing it on TV. He called a Lakers meeting and, after talking to his own circle of advisers, said to his teammates that they shouldn’t play their Game 5 that night against the Trail Blazers.

There was no way,” LeBron said. “That was it.”
