Are we supposed to feel sorry for LeBron James now because he didn't like how hard he was fouled in his Miami Heat's streak-ending 101-97 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday?
Nah. Not me, anyway.
But James might have made a smart move by voicing his displeasure. Will officials now tend to call flagrant fouls against defenders that go after James aggressively? Or maybe it works the other way.
The Maui Invitational got bragging rights over the Diamond Head Classic today in the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 action. Marquette, the fifth place team in the Maui tourney, ousted Miami, the runner-up team in the DHC, 71-61 (and it wasn't that close).
Also today, Ohio State knocked out DHC champion Arizona 73-70 in a thriller.
