INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — LeBron James disdains the notion he's a coach killer.

Widely criticized in basketball circles for a perception that he pushed for Cleveland's front office to fire David Blatt last week, James said the criticism that he undercuts coaches is unfair.

"But what can I do about it?" he said following shootaround on Wednesday as the Cavs prepared to play the Phoenix Suns.

"I've never, in my time since I picked up a basketball, ever undermined a coach, ever disrespected a coach," he said. "You ask any of my little league coaches, my high school coaches, coaches I've played for in tournaments, camps, my NBA coaches, I've always respected what they wanted to do."
