Chicago Bulls fans cheer after LeBron James appears to be hurt (Video)
Midway through the fourth quarter of the Miami Heat’s 86-67 win over the Bulls, Chicago guard Nate Robinson ran into LeBron James to stop the Heat forward from getting an easy fastbreak basket. James began limping after the play, which triggered cheers from several fans at the United Center.
TNT announcers Kevin Harlan and Steve Kerr immediately got on the Bulls fans for cheering. Harlan called it an “ugly moment” for Bulls fans. Kerr even compared the poor display to Philadelphia Eagles fans infamously cheering while Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin lay motionless with a neck injury.
The cheers didn’t last for longer than a few seconds, but that was enough for many people to express disappointment with Bulls fans.
Bulls fans were ticked off when Philadelphia 76ers fans cheered after Joakim Noah got hurt, but it turns out that some of them aren’t much different from Philly fans.
