Taj Gibson rolls to the basket off the pick and throws it down over the Magic big man.
There’s always been some sentiment that the Miami Heat are coddled and Lebron James is commissioner David Stern’s golden child. Often people complain about the fouls called or lack there of when it comes to Lebron. However to actually hear a coach and team hint at the very thought is a little shocking. It is fitting though that coach Tom Thibodeau and the Chicago Bulls would be the ones to address the elephant in the room. The Bulls and Heat have been in a dogfight of a playoff series and I’m sure there’s some resentment since the Bulls ended the Heat’s 27-game win streak and stopped them from creating history. Last night things came to a head in the already physical matchup when Nazr Mohammed was ejected for shoving Lebron to the floor. While Nazr was ejected, Lebron was given a technical and allowed to continue playing. While the shoves were clearly different, the Bulls think there’s a conspiracy going on considering all the dirty plays that have gone on between the two. Read more after the jump.
ESPN describes it: After nine technical fouls, two ejections and a whole lot of extracurricular pushing and shoving, the end results were as follows: The biggest postseason win in Heat history, the biggest postseason loss in Chicago Bulls history, and tons of fresh venom pulsing through the veins of this now-tied Eastern Conference semifinal series. Miami won 115-78, a stunning outcome for a game that was basically back-and-forth for much of the first half.
A couple of the highlights came from LeBron James and Joakim Noah (almost fight over ball) along with Taj Gibson (loses it after getting ejected). Check’em out…
If you haven’t heard, Lil Wayne has picked the Heat to take the title this year. He may no longer be a fan of the team, but that’s not clouding his judgement. Of course since he’s allegedly banned from the Heat games, we didn’t see him courtside during game 1 against the Bulls last night. BUT don’t worry, that doesn’t mean Tunechi isn’t going to party. He was spotted out with a few NBA players. Who exactly?! Find out after the jump…
It has not been a good week for Kris Humphries, you almost feel bad for him. First, after all that time battling his ex Kim Kardashian in court for money from that sham of a marriage, he wound up walking away with nothing in the final settlement. Now his Brooklyn Nets do not look so good against the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the playoffs. Last night his week got even worse when Taj Gibson turned Humprhies into a poster for years to come. Check out the mean dunk after the jump.
It still blows my mind when any player in the NBA has the nerve to talk sh*t about Lebron. Now let me be clear, I am NOT a Miami Heat fan, I am not even a Lebron fan. But I am a realistic fan and at the end of the day at this point in time, Lebron is clearly the best player in the NBA followed closely by Kevin Durant, Kobe, Melo and a couple others. It just seems at times dudes can’t keep Lebron’s name out of their mouth and it is usually some average player. Well it happened again in the wake of the Heat finally losing a game to end their streak of 27 straight to the Chicago Bulls. Read more after the jump to see who was talking nonsense now.

This video is absolutely hilarious, well not so much if you’re a Chicago Bulls fan. Taj Gibson was spotted out in Hollywood as the Bulls were in town to take on the Los Angeles Clippers. The night before the game Gibson was out on the town with his friends completed wasted. Check it out after the jump.
