LeBron not taking the bait

Kevin Durant weighed in publicly about how LeBron James should play, or in Durant's case what it's like to play with him. 

After a big win, where LeBron scored 20 in the fourth quarter to help the Lakers erase an eight-point deficit with 8 minutes, 46 seconds remaining. 

Afterward, James was asked if his performance was fueled in anyway by all the talk surrounding him in recent days.

"No, for what? I'm past the [taking things] personal stage," James said after his third game of 40-plus points this season. "I can do whatever. I can have a huge workload, I can have a not so huge workload. ... It doesn't matter for me. What's most important is seeing my teammates make huge shots in the fourth quarter. ... That's what's most important to me. I can care less about the narrative about me. It doesn't matter. I'm a staple in this game."

After Wednesday's win over the Spurs, James declined to comment on Durant's remarks.

LeBron is too smart to rush an answer, especially because he needs to understand what KD was actually inferring. 

Durant has 100% taken on the villain role.
