LeBron James spoke out about the way he gets officiated on Wednesday night, saying he is starting to get concerned about how physical he believes some opponents are against him.
James made the comments to reporters huddled around his locker in Chicago not long after he and the Miami Heat had their 27-game winning streak snapped, with the Bulls prevailing 101-97. He cited two specific plays he thought merited flagrant fouls, one involving Kirk Hinrich in the first quarter and another by Taj Gibson late in the fourth.
The only flagrant assessed in the game was one against James himself with 3:52 remaining, when the Heat were trying to mount a comeback.
"I'm not sitting here crying about anything," James said. "I play the game at a high level, I play with a lot of aggression, I understand that some of the plays are on the borderline of a basketball play or not. But sometimes, you know, I don't know ... it's frustrating."

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...
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...

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...
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.

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:
Miami Heat forward LeBron James said Friday that he doesn't care what other people think about the comments he made over the hard intentional fouls he encountered Wednesday night. "I actually
“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...
