When I first heard about this I was like, 'Wait when did the Pacers get (LeBron nemesis) DeShawn Stevenson?' Pacers benchwarmer Lance Stephenson pulled the choke move after a LeBron missed free throw on a Danny Granger technical foul.
Now if some scrub did this to Michael Jordan, he'd drop 50 on them the next game, all the while pointing at the opposing bench after each bucket. KG would put up 30 and 15. As for LeBron? Well he's no MJ (or KG for that matter).

PHILADELPHIA -- The Pacers have exposed the Heat's weakness, and it is not that LeBron James is unwilling to take the last shot or that Erik Spoelstra is overmatched or any of the other explanations thrown at us by pundits who form their opinions after watching only the final 90 seconds of a basketball game. The Pacers have battered the Heat in the last two games of their Eastern...

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Pacers no longer are just a nuisance. Instead, they're threatening to topple the balance of power in the Eastern Conference. On a night LeBron James was merely good and Dwyane Wade anything but for the Heat, the Pacers moved to a 2-1 lead in this best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series with a 94-75 victory Thursday night at Bankers Life...

The Heat are receiving a lot of criticism as of late, after losing two consecutive games to the Indiana Pacers during the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Also, Dwyane Wade’s and Coach Erik Spoelstra’s confrontation during the game as well as Dwyane Wade’s inability to produce during Game 3, but this just adds to the conundrum.
