Miami Heat managed to escape with a victory against the Chicago Bulls Friday night, which saw them regain home-court advantage in the second-round series. However, one of the most talked about stories from the game was Nazr Mohammed’s ejection. After the game, the Bulls didn’t necessarily agree with the decision.
After the game, Nate Robinson took a shot at James:
Clearly, Robinson thought that James flopped and according to K.C. Johnson, Tom Thibodeau agreed.
By saying that, Thibodeau could very well get fined as he indirectly criticized the officiating.
Looking back at the clip, you can tell that LeBron falls relatively easily. He takes the push and acts a little surprised before he goes down. The push clearly put him a little off-balance and was hard enough to force James to go backwards, but he could probably have stayed on his feet. Still, what Mohammed did was somewhat unwarranted. It is understandable that he was upset with James on the play, but to get up and shove him like that was uncalled for to say the least.
What do you think? Was ejecting Mohammed for the shove the right call? Let us know in the comment section below.
