Should the NBA's baseline cameramen be moved back? More than a few players think so.
Following LeBron James' scary fall in the second quarter of Game 4 on Thursday -- one that sent him tumbling into a photographer, the camera cutting the crown of his head -- a debate was ignited on whether photojournalists should be that close to the action in the first place.

Players been complaining about that for years— Lou Williams (@TeamLou23) June 12, 2015
My bad. I forgot how many of Yall have ran into a cameraman during a game lol. Continue— Lou Williams (@TeamLou23) June 12, 2015
I have people mad at me for something they've literally never experienced 😂😭😂😭. How does that work?— Lou Williams (@TeamLou23) June 12, 2015
Such a huge problem that people don't realize. Size and strength of NBA players is off the charts. Media cameras are too close to the court— Meyers Leonard (@MeyersLeonard11) June 12, 2015
No knock to them at all. It just needs to be changed somehow. Bad for players crashing into each other around the baseline/under the basket— Meyers Leonard (@MeyersLeonard11) June 12, 2015
Boy I hate to see Boguts mentions right now— Mitch Rapp (@24Bazemore) June 12, 2015
Get those damn camera men out the way— JARRETT JACK (@Jarrettjack03) June 12, 2015
Finally, now maybe they will do something about the camera people under the hoop.— The Needle (@spencerhawes00) June 12, 2015
