Roy Hibbert has been handed a $75K fine for his comments during the post-game press conference Saturday night following Game 6. The world expected it to happen the second the curse word and gay slur slipped out, and sure enough it happened.
What the world probably did not expect was for some enterprising individual to discover a video clip on YouTube of LeBron James making the same comment--and not getting fined.
I first saw this clip on BlackSportsOnline (who had a great post with the clip). To be fair, it is hard to tell when the comment was made. The video itself was posted to YouTube three years ago, but there is another clip of just the Spike Lee interview that was posted back in 2007.
So I don't know when LeBron made his comment, but here it is anyway:
This clip is bound to find its way into main stream media and when it does I am sure there will be a nice little storm over the double standard that the NBA appears to apply fining someone now and not fin...
BEST OF MAXIM
Thanks to former Redskins QB Joe Theismann, the Internet just about blew up with the notion that reigning league MVP LeBron James could potentially play the same position one day. With as big of a freak athlete Bron Bron is, it got us thinking, “Could he actually be successful at it?” Though there’s about a [...]
Following Saturday's game 6 loss to the Pacers, when discussing his technical foul for running the complete length of the court after being called for a rare foul, LeBron James said this to the media:
“I had to run down the court to stop from being kicked out,” James said. “I thought it was a pretty bad call. I don’t complain about calls too much. I thought me and Hibbert...
Let’s face it…we all know that NBA players flop and one star that has been guilty of that sin is the Miami Heat’s LeBron James.
After his floptastic performance against the Indiana Pacers in game four, the fine folks over at RSLVTs.com decided to put together a video supercut of LeBron’s best flops:
LeBron James best flopping moments [With Leather]
LeBron James busted out his go-go gadget legs in following up on a Dwayne Wade miss for a thunderous put-back dunk during the first quarter of Game 7 between his Heat and the Indiana Pacers.
There has been plenty of talk about the Miami Heat and the Big Three going into Game 7 tonight. LeBron James appeared bound and determined to have not just a good night, but a dominant one with this slam for his first basket of the night.
Of course time will tell if his night will be a dominant one...
LeBron said that there is nothing wrong with flopping if you gives you a competitive advantage. LeBron practices what he’s preaching.
After butting heads throughout the Eastern Conference finals, LeBron James gave Lance Stephenson some words of encouragement following the Heat’s Game 7 win over the Pacers Monday night.
According to the Indy Star:
“He said I played hard this season and he’s happy with my progress,” Stephenson said. “He said I helped changed the Pacers organization, made us stronger and...
TOWELIE ALWAYS SAYS...
Hey, maybe Shane Battier didn’t contribute the way some would have liked during the seven-game series between the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat that came to a definitive end Monday night with Miami headed to the NBA Finals. After all, Shane Battier averaged 2.3 points on 12.5 percent shooting (.3 FGM on 2.7 attempts), 13.3 [...]The post Shane Battier Randomly Drying Off LeBron...
MIAMI (AP) -- No more sitting out stars, and for the San Antonio Spurs, no more sitting around.
Finally, the NBA Finals matchup is set, and the Miami Heat will either win a second straight championship or the Spurs will go a perfect 5 for 5 in the title round while denying LeBron James a ring for the second time.
The Heat earned their third consecutive Eastern Conference title...

For the first time since LeBron James left, the Cavaliers won something. While it may have been a winning ticket to the worst lottery in years, it was enough for the Gilbert family to celebrate raucously (and somewhat embarrassingly). What should Cleveland do with the pick? I covered the Cavaliers for RotoWire this past season, so I have a pretty...
Ever since the Heat came together on a stage in July 2010 with the pyrotechnics and bravado of a team that was pre-ordained to do great things, intense scrutiny has focused upon them. Every mistake, hiccup, shoulder bump, missed shot, injury, misspoken word, tweet, gesture and breath has been dissected and examined to an unreal and unfathomable level.
The Pacers seemed to expose...
Game time: 8:30 p.m.
MIAMI (AP) -- Standing on the cusp of the NBA Finals has tended to agree with the Miami Heat in each of the last two seasons. When the Heat have gotten a game away from the title round, they've finished the task as quickly as possible.
And here they are again.
A third straight Eastern Conference title is now just one win away for the reigning champions...
MIAMI (AP) -- Their season, their legacy, their reign atop the NBA was all at stake, and the Miami Heat responded to all of that in a manner befitting champions.
With a blowout.
It's onto the NBA Finals for the Heat after they put away the Indiana Pacers, who saw their hopes of a storybook upset simply fall apart in a hurry.
LeBron James scored 32 points and grabbed eight...
