Daily Shootaround: Players, Coaches Voice Opinion on No Call


Here are today’s most interesting stories about the Miami Heat from around the Web.

  • Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel wrote of LeBron James’ reaction to the no call at the end of the Heat-Nets game.

Takeaway: These are some rather juicy quotes, with LeBron clearly bothered that no foul was called. More interesting, however, is Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd saying that his team was “lucky.”

  • Bleacher Report’s Ethan Skolnick wrote a column on how the Nets sweeped the Heat in the season series.

Takeaway: Chris Bosh, for someone who was outplayed by a rookie in Mason Plumlee, was awfully vocal.

  • Plumlee admitted that he was going for the foul.

Takeaway: He wanted to foul! Jeez, how did the refs screw that up?

  • Tom Haberstroh of ESPN.com writes that LeBron James doesn’t see any parallels between this season’s Indiana Pacers team and his first season in Miami.

Takeaway: While this is a rather “duh” thing to say, since the Pacers basically represent everything that the Heat aren’t (at least in the opinions of Pacers fans), it’s still noteworthy that LeBron is taking notice. Especially with the game Friday night.
