CLEVELAND, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Lebron James acknowledged that a tweet he sent Saturday was in fact a subtweet to fellow Cavs player Kevin Love after having problems with him on the court.
James tweeted that people should try to fit in rather than "fit out" -- a reference to a previous statement from Love about how he works on the team.
"I'm comfortable and just not trying to, I guess, fit in so much," Love said. "I had a talk with the guys on the plane ride over [to Brazil] and also at different practices off the floor, and they told me to fit out, just be myself."
James told a small group of reporters his tweet was no coincidence.
Stop trying to find a way to FIT-OUT and just FIT-IN. Be apart of something special! Just my thoughts— LeBron James (@KingJames) February 8, 2015
This is after he tried to convince reporters it was just a general thought that people " try to encrypt it and 'Da Vinci Code' it and all that stuff."
The reaction to Love's comments is suspected to stem from tension after Love's second five-point outing in the span of three games in a loss to Indiana on Friday.
Love has re-signed with the Cavs and has denied rumors he might move to another team.
