LeBron James and Mario Chalmers had a heated moment during a timeout on Wednesday during the Indiana Pacers-Miami Heat game. James jumped into Chalmers’ face as they argued over defense. Later, James apologized to Chalmers for the outburst, saying, “Yo, Rio. I was wrong. My bad.”
It’s good to see Miami Heat still have that fire, but it’s even better to see LeBron squash the argument even before the game ended. That’s true leadership, as Doug Collins said. Teammates arguing is just part of the game of basketball.
The Heat went on a late run to beat the Pacers, 97-94.
