LeBron James said he didn't see Cam Newton's postgame press conference after Super Bowl 50, but shared what it's been like for him to talk to the media after an NBA Finals loss: "I know it's very difficult to play in one of the biggest games of your life and come out on the wrong side of it and then have to automatically answer questions.
