Dave McMenamin of ESPN:

Should James really get credit for Lamar opening up his library or was the timing just a happy coincidence?

“That’s what it’s been documented, as of now,” James said. “Yeah. That’s what they said. They said to thank me. So, appreciate it. You’re welcome.”

“That’s how it works sometimes,” James said with a laugh.

Thanks, LeBron.
