When Chris Bosh and Mario Chalmers engaged in an argument on the floor about a mistaken defensive assignment in Game 3, Joakim Noah elevated the situation by demonstratively clapping in their direction.
"Those are called, 'Miami Heat huddles,' 'Miami Heat exchanges,' 'Miami Heat dialogue,'" said Erik Spoelstra on I get much more concerned when our dialogue is not passionate."
The Heat responded to that exchange with a 34-point output in the fourth quarter.
"That was a healthy conversation that was very demonstrative and animated," Spoelstra said. "But it was very specific and detailed to our spacing. I actually very much like that dialogue."
"We had a specific game plan that we talked about," Bosh explained. "I made a play and he didn't follow that game plan. I was going to be in a specific place and he thought I was going to be in another place. And I had to talk about it.
"We got over it. We talked ...

PULL UP YOUR SHOES!
Tweet I’ll make this brief… We get that some NBA players are looking to make fashion statements with their pre/post game attire, but this outfit Dwyane Wade left the hotel wearing is over the top: Come on, man. Give your son back his pants, Dwyane. -ALR
ON SECOND THOUGHT
Despite recent speculation, Bulls point guard Derrick Rose reportedly "strongly considered" playing against the Heat, but "ultimately decided against it."
Dwyane Wade attempted just seven shots in the Miami Heat's Game 3 win over the Chicago Bulls, but he made it clear once again that he is willing to accept a lesser role as part of a championship favorite.
“You can only play this game for so long, and when you leave this game, what memories are you going to have? That’s what I asked myself. What memories do I want to have...
Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade came to the United Center for Monday night's Game 4 against the Chicago Bulls wearing capri pants and no socks. Not exactly a popular fashion choice, but to each his own.

In response to Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau accusing LeBron James of flopping on the shove from Nazr Mohammed that sent the MVP down to the hardwood, James says that while he will do whatever it takes for his team to win, he is not a flopper and never has been.
According to NBA.com:
“I don’t need to flop,” James said. “I play an aggressive game. I don’t flop. I’ve never...
Again, as we said last week, hate the Miami Heat all you want, and it’s easy to hate a team that’s on it’…
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...
Dwyane Wade is struggling with a gimpy knee. It hasn't hurt Miami
yet, but it might later in the playoffs.
After the Chicago Bulls lost game three of their series against the Miami Heat, Tom Thibodeau and Nate Robinson both shared some words about Lebron James. They were talking about an incident where Nazr Mohammed shoved Lebron causing him to “fall” down. Heres what they said: “From my angle, I just saw a guy basically [...]

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...
It was the shove heard 'round the basketball loving world! I''m talking about that moment in Game Three of the Miami Heat/Chicago Bulls series when Nazr Mohammed took offense to what he believed was LeBron James trying to trip him and sent the league MVP to the floor instead.
And now he is saying he is sorry. Sort of.
On Twitter Nazr did apologize for his actions...
Things just aren't going well for the Chicago Bulls. Too much attention has been paid to when/if Derrick Rose is going to play, the injury bug has really hit these guys hard, and the Miami Heat now appear to be set to end their season barring a miraculous comeback.
In Game Four they could barely buy a shot making just 19 of 74 (Nate Robinson went 0-12). With shooting woes...
