LeBron James' manager, Maverick Carter, said that he believes race played a factor in how James' decision to join the Miami Heat was covered by the media.
In an interview with CNN on Wednesday night, Carter said race "definitely played a role in some of the stuff coming out of the media
" during coverage leading up to and after "The Decision
," a heavily-criticized ESPN special in which James announced his free-agent choice.
James had little to add Thursday after practice.
"I think people are looking too far into it,"
James said. "But at the same time, sometimes it does play a part in it. I've said what I had to say, and I'll continue to move on."
Through a representative, Carter declined comment Thursday.
"I don't walk in LeBron's shoes,
" Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra
said. "From our standpoint, we've moved on from the summer."
