After the Chicago Bulls ended the Miami Heat 27-game winning streak, a rather dejected LeBron James found his way down the visitor's tunnel at the United Center.Before he disappeared from view of the rowdy Chicago crowd, one Bulls fan attempted to jack his headband right off his head:Nice try dude...Nice try...
After losing to the Bulls on Wednesday night and watching their 27-game win streak come to an end, LeBron James voiced his frustration with the physical play of the Bulls and referred to the no layup-minded fouls committed by Kirk Hinrich (watch here) and Taj Gibson as non-basketball plays.
LeBron James to Sun Sports/FOX:
“Let me calculate my thoughts real fast before I say anything...
LeBron James released some his of frustrations on fouls towards the refs following the Miami Heat's loss to the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday.
The Chicago Bulls, without Derrick Rose, Marco Bellineli or Joakim Noah, ended the Miami Heat’s massive 27-game winning streak Wednesday night and LeBron James was just a tad upset. When LeBron was leaving through the tunnel, a random fan tried to grab his headband and LeBron wasn’t having it. H/T SBNationThe post Fan Tries To Grab LeBron James’ Headband; He Ain’t Havin’...
This Miami Heat team has always needed failure to help find and define how great they can be. And so, in the end, with its near-historic winning streak halted at 27, it's true again: Their setback allows us and them to sit back, marvel at what they accomplished and fully grasp just how much LeBron James has transformed himself, his team and his league.
Two years ago, the Heat...
LeBron James was in perfect position for the rebound he needed for a triple-double. Near the rim, no Orlando opponents in his way, he readied his hands as he gazed toward the basket.
Only problem was, E'Twaun Moore made the shot.
James' night was complete a few moments later. No triple-double, the 24th time he fell short of the feat by exactly one assist or one rebound...
LeBron James and Taj Gibson spent together last summer.
The Miami Heat are working towards quite a feat in trying to break the record for most consecutive wins. (The record of 33 games was set by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.) If the Heat get the record and win this year’s championship, they will undoubtedly be recognized as one of the greatest teams in NBA history. If they don’t get the record, but still get close to it and end...
The Miami Heat won game #26 in a row against the Charlotte Bobcats on Sunday beating them 109-77 in Miami. Dwyane Wade sat this one out nursing a sore knee but took over commentator duties interviewing LeBron James following the game.
Of course it’s not a proper Miami Heat postgame interview without a video bomb from Chris Bosh!
Sidenote. It’s Spring. They’re in Miami...
For the next 48 hours, the sports media will be on fire as we all lament the death of the Miami Heat's winning streak.
For historical purposes, we all enjoy watching our generation of legends detonate history so that we can be a part of something special.
These things define us just as much as it defines the players that get the job done.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — LeBron James left one rebound shy of a triple-double, feigning a bit of frustration as he checked out of the game., http://juicedsportsblog.com/sports-news/news/heat-win-27th-straight-run-away-from-magic-10894-yahoo-sports
For the past month, two teams have been streaking alongside the other: the Miami Heat and the Denver Nuggets. One of those teams’ streaks ended – in a dismal way – Monday evening. Hint: It was the team that does not possess LeBron James. The New Orleans Hornets deserve all the praise in the world; [...]The post Denver Nuggets: Can’t Afford Lackadaisical Energized Games...
Two of the most gifted athletes in our generation were in attendance at the Amway Center on Monday as the Orlando Magic played host to the surging Miami Heat.
Seen here is retired Reds outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. engaging in conversation with Heat forward LeBron James just before Miami ran their epic winning streak to 27 games with a decisive victory over the Magic.
“Let me calculate my thoughts real fast before I say (what I want to say),” James said. “I believe and I know that a lot of my fouls are not basketball plays. First of all, Kirk Hinrich in the first quarter basically grabbed me with two hands and brought me to the ground. The last one, Taj Gibson was able to collar me around my shoulder and bring me to the ground. Those are...
Earlier this year our buddy Adam went down to New Orleans for the Super Bowl. While in town he was able to pull off a feat that every man in America dreams of. He got to attend the hottest Super Bowl events with Candice Swanepoel (yes, the Victoria’s Secret Angel) as his arm-candy. Did we mention he was dressed as a paparazzi lightning rod for the entire thing? We got to see...
