08:38 AM ET 08.23 | It seems the folks at HBO's "Hard Knocks" were slightly concerned about Larry Johnson's quote in the Star on Wednesday, a quote explaining why he finally chose to sign. The guys on the "Hard Knocks" staff would tell me and show me interviews from guys on the team saying they missed me," LJ told Star columnist Jason Whitlock. "That really got me." The implication is that "Hard Knocks" went beyond the boundaries of coverage and somehow influenced LJ's decision to sign. Not the case, said HBO spokesman Kevin Flaherty.
