LeBron James turned 35 on Monday.
After the Lakers' 108-95 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday at the Staples Center, James was not ready to hear any journalist say "Happy Birthday."
"If I came home, I would be 35," laughed James, who referred to the three-hour time difference in Akron, Ohio. “I live in Los Angeles now. Don't tell me yet. "
James was asked to share his birthday wish and gave a hilarious response.

"I have no birthday wishes," James said. "I'm not a birthday wish boy."
Journalist: Are you going to have a party?
"Yes," said James. "I'm going to have one of those, but that's not a wish because I have to pay it."
The NBA star was in a good mood after scoring 13 points, 13 assists and six rebounds in the victory. He also joined the 9,000-assist club.
