Lebron James looks on during a game against the Milwaukee Bucks at American Airlines Arena on April 6, 2011 in Miami

*After the Miami Heat finished practice on Thursday, LeBron James finally broke his silence about the arrest of his mom in Miami Beach.

As previously reported, Gloria James was arrested for allegedly slapping a valet parking attendant outside of the Fountainbleu Hotel. She was processed and released.

Asked about it by reporters, LeBron said: “You have to move forward … It is my life and there’s certain things you have to deal with. You try not to let it be a distraction. I have a job to do, still.”

He continued, “It’s very sensitive because it’s your mother. Of course to have an incident, it’s very sensitive. But the people around me are helping me.”
