The suggestion that he's a flopper drew a grin as wide as his wingspan from LeBron James.
Miami's superstar shot down the accusations from the Chicago Bulls, saying they reminded him of the days when some claimed he was overrated and questioned his ability to lead a team to a championship.
''It's kind of the same (as when) I heard people say I was overrated,'' he said Sunday. ''It's kind of like the same response.''
The Heat are trying to repeat as champions after a dominant regular season, and if they keep this up, they won't have to worry about Chicago much longer. Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals is Monday, and Miami has a chance to take a 3-1 lead in a series with no shortage of hard fouls, technicals, ejections and fines. One thing in short supply is healthy bodies for the Bulls, with Luol Deng still recovering from a spinal tap and Kirk Hinrich from a bruised left calf. The odds that either would play seemed sli...
BEST OF MAXIM
LeBron James was shoved to the floor as the testy series between the Heat and the Bulls boiled over in the second quarter of Game 3.
James took exception to an intentional foul by Chicago's Nazr Mohammed and flailed at him, which provoked the Bulls big man to floor James with a two-handed shove to the chest.
Mohammed was ejected while James received a technical foul, however...
Nate Robinson may have been blessed with talent rather than height, and the man sure knows what to do with his talent. The 5'9" guard proved that once again Friday night with a block on LeBron James as the superstar was trying to go up for a layup.
As icing on the cake, King James was knocked to the floor in the process and a foul was called on Dwayne Wade!
The physical nature of the Heat-Bulls second-round series -- which was on prominent display in Game 2 -- was evident again during Game 3 on Friday night in Chicago.
During the second quarter, Bulls center Nazr Mohammed planted a hard foul on Heat star LeBron James. James responded by pushing off Mohammed after being wrapped up.
Mohammed escalated events when, after picking himself...
After blocking Yao Ming when he was a member of the New York Knicks, Nate Robinson already proved that his short stature doesn’t mean he can’t swat an opponent. Watch as Nate chases down a LeBron James lay-up attempt in game three of the Heat/Bulls second round playoff series:
Chicago Bulls center Nazr Mohammed was ejected from Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Miami Heat on Friday night after shoving LeBron James to the court.
As James dribbled up the floor early in the second quarter, Mohammed reached in and tried to steal the ball near midcourt. Their arms got tangled and Mohammed fell.
He then got up and shoved James to the...
CHICAGO (AP) -- LeBron James came on strong down the stretch to finish with 25 points, Chris Bosh added 20 points and 19 rebounds, and the Miami Heat followed up the most lopsided playoff win in franchise history with a 104-94 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Friday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Norris Cole scored 18, and the Heat pulled out a tight...
So far in game three between the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat, things are getting a little shovey.
First, Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah pushes Miami center Chris Anderson to the ground which warranted a technical for Noah and then, Chicago Bulls center Nazr Mohammed shoves LeBron James to the ground.
Nazr’s shove earned him an ejection and apparently, flopping still exists...
Tom Thibodeau spoke his mind about the NBA’s refs, and in return, the Bulls’ head coach’s wallet will be a little lighter on Sunday.
The NBA fined Thibodeau $35,000 for comments that were critical of the refereeing in Game 3 of the Bulls-Heat series, according to the league’s official release. Thibodeau wasn’t happy with a call that got Nazr Mohammed ejected from the game...
Andrew Wiggins is widely considered one of the best high school basketball players we have seen since LeBron James, so you can imagine there were plenty of anxious folks waiting to hear where he would be attending college. Andrew made his announcement on Tuesday at 9:15 a.m. pst that he will be playing ball next year for Kansas University.
As soon as the announcement was made, Twitter...
A lot of comparisons to LeBron James and that is a big burden to carry on your back.
We will see if Wiggins lives up to the hype.
Announcement at 12:09 pm that he will be going to Kansas with Bill Self and Kurtis Townsend.

In a bit of a surprise the number one basketball player in the country Andrew Wiggins is headed to Kansas to play his college basketball. Most experts thought Wiggins was headed to Florida State, where both of his parents went to school. The other two schools that were finalists for Wiggins were Kentucky and North Carolina.
Wiggins is a 6’8” small forward with freakish athletic...
