When it comes to basketball, it’s safe to say LeBron James of the Miami Heat is one of the most competitive players in the NBA who sometimes let’s his emotions get the best of him. So when James discusses with the media his frustration over some of the hard fouls from Wednesday’s game against the Chicago Bulls–it shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise to anyone.
The Heat saw their 27-game winning streak come to an end on Wednesday after their 101-97 loss to the Bulls and even though the players may not want to admit it–it’s safe to say this team was excited about the possibility of setting a new NBA record. What Miami’s accomplished during their winning streak was nothing short of amazing and they have every reason in the world to be frustrated over their loss to the Bulls.
However, there’s no reason for James to be complaining about the hard fouls like he did while addressing the media following the game.
Obviously, there’s nothing James or the Heat can do about some of the calls from Wednesday’s game–so it’s best to just move on from what happened and prepare for the next game. The game of basketball can get physical at times and James should have known the Heat would be in for a difficult matchup against a very talented Chicago team.
Instead of complaining about what happened in the game when it comes to the hard fouls, James should focus on using Wednesday’s game as motivation if these two happens to meet in the playoffs–which could easily happen.
