LeBron James and Isaiah Stewart have been the hottest topic in this past week’s headlines. If you are not aware, the two had a minor scuffle during the Lakers vs. Pistons game. The altercation happened because Lebron hit Isaiah in the face with his elbow.
LeBron has since said the hit was an accident; however, Isaiah is calling that fake news. In Stewart’s return to the Piston’s lineup, he briefly spoke on the situation.
In a video clip, Isaiah says, “I watched the film. Me personally, I didn’t feel like it was an accident, but it’s my last time addressing it. My main focus right now is on my team.”
Stewart also makes it clear that this is his final time speaking on the altercation, and he’s not going to let the situation define him.
“I’m not going to let that define who I am. I’m going to let what Detroit drafted me for define who I am and the way I play basketball,” Isaiah adds.
Watch Isaiah’s full response below.
