11:39 PM ET 05.12 | In the middle of a hard-fought series, the last thing Heat coach Erik Spoelstra cares about is what the opposing coach is saying about the officials. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau blasted the refs after Game 3, earning himself a $35,000 fine. When asked about Thibodeau's comments, Spoelstra brushed them off. "I don't care," Spoelstra said when the issue of Thibodeau's comments was broached after his team's Sunday practice at the University of Illinois-Chicago. "I don't spend a lot time thinking about what Tom is saying. I don't. This game, this series, will be decided between those four lines, and no one can deny that." Thibodeau also called out LeBron James for flopping after getting shoved by Nazr Mohammed, a characterization James took offense to. "When you're comfortable with who you are as a player and as a person, nothing really bothers you," James said. "I don't need to flop. I play an aggressive game. I don't flop. I've never been one of those guys.'' Tensions are sure to be high again when the Bulls and Heat square off on Monday at the United Center.

James is a champion, but nothing wrong in accepting that he did flop. James, that thing you did, is the definition of a flop. Now you can try to redefine "flop" like Clinton tried to refined sex. But other than that, Yes you flopped. Get over it!

Nice one Mick! LeBron is a major liar and a flopper. Here's a guy who bulldozes his way to the basket but complains so much about touchy fouls.
