Found March 27, 2013 on
LeBron almost went Gloria James on the fan, but cooler heads prevailed. The fan should know that LeBron’s hairline can only be shown under perfect circumstances, so I understand why The King was a bit upset.
From a practical perspective you shouldn’t try to steal gear off a player’s body, while they are walking to the locker room. In the streets that might get you punched in the face.
The streak is over and it was impressive. As I said on the last Boss and Rob Show, it would have been interesting to see the Heat win out, only because it would have made the playoffs more interesting, but 27 games in a row isn’t too shabby.
In the end it is still The Heat vs. the field in regard to winning the NBA Championship, so there will be some intrigued. Give the Bulls credit, it wasn’t a fluke win, they just outplayed the Heat. The Heat had been playing with fire for several games, so it was just a matter of time before it caught up with them.
But it is was a hell of a ride.

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.

“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.
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 and Taj Gibson spent together last summer.
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...
Baseball has August. The NBA has March.
They are the dog days of the season. But at least it was nice of the Miami Heat to liven up this past month.
When the Feb. 21 trade deadline passed, it looked to be time to count the days until the playoffs start or at least until there was a last-ditch fight for No. 8 seeds. Yet the Heat kept winning.
And winning. And winning. And winning...
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.

In what has become a postgame tradition with the Miami Heat, LeBron James showed us all his best “27 straight wins” face, while videobombing Ray Allen’s interview:
“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...
In so many ways, the Celtics resemble the spirit of Dante about to enter his journey into Hell to rescue his beloved Beatrice. Beatrice is of course Banner #18 and Hell will surely be surviving with success to the 2013 playoffs entering as a 6th seeded team at best in the East. We could continue with the analogies with Dante´s marvelous opus by giving the role of the Devil to LeBron...
