LeBron James Says He's Too Tough For A Concussion

Wednesday March 21st, 2012

When asked if he had ever had a concussion, Miami Heat superstar LeBron James told reporters; “No.  I’m too tough for that.”

The question came after James suffered a collision with small forward Grant Hill in the final minute of a 99-95 win against the Phoenix Suns. According to reports, James was on the ground for nearly two minutes after the blow.

James’ teammate Dexter Pittman told Fox Sports that he wasn’t worried about his star forward.

"Not really," he said. "I know the guy is like the Terminator, he bounces back up. He's like this creepy, scary guy, Mike Myers, in a movie whenever he gets knocked around. I knew he was going to get up."
