LeBron James did speak at the podium after the Heat Game 1 loss, after the 36 loss The King decided he didn’t have time to get on the podium.

This isn’t the first time has done this after a loss. In general, you want your superstars to speak regardless if it is a win or loss, but sometimes they aren’t in the mood.
It is LeBron’s decision, but if the Heat do lose this series, it is something fans and media will hold over his head. He won’t be fined because he made himself available to the media in the locker room, but not at the podium.
