Following LeBron James' injury during Saturday night's game, NBA fans around the globe began questioning the intentions of Solomon Hill, whose dive for the ball led to James spraining his ankle.

Fans have been debating ever since whether or not Hill deserves some sort of punishment. But, responding to all the noise and accusations of malice on Twitter, Hill insisted he would never disrespect the game like that.

“Would never disrespect the game and take a player out purposely. He knows that. that’s all that matters to me. Praying for a speedy recovery,” Solomon Hill tweeted.

Obviously, only Hill himself knows the true intentions behind that play. For us, all we can see is him diving for the ball -- and we can't really do much else but take his word for it.

Still, when you mess with LeBron, there will be some fallback, and Hill is finding that out the hard way.
