Miami Heat: NBA rescinds phantom technical against LeBron James during preseason win against Charlotte Bobcats

Miami Heat: NBA rescinds phantom technical against LeBron James during preseason win against Charlotte Bobcats | NBA Action! | Scoop.it

KANSAS CITY— Never mind. That essentially was the NBA's verdict when it came to Heat forward LeBron James being called for a technical foul while being the victim of a foul in Tuesday's exhibition victory over the Bobcats.

 

On an odd sequence that appeared to involve a block-charge scenario, no sooner had James received the call in his favor then referee Marat Kogut whistled James for a technical foul seemingly for thrusting his chest into Bobcats guard Gerald Henderson.

 

An incredulous James tried to plead his case, but amid the chaos, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra also was called for a technical foul.

 

Wednesday, the Sun Sentinel learned that the league rescinded James' technical. Actually, the officials had informed those courtside at halftime that the incorrect call was made on the James technical foul, leading to the league's Wednesday action...

In the 1970s, when rap music was just taking off, legendary DJ Afrika Bambaataa of the Zulu Nation outlined the four pillars of hip-hop culture: MCing, DJing, breakdancing and graffiti writing.

Today, while most of these elements have gone mainstream and already been integrated into NBA entertainment, one pillar has yet to fully reach the sports masses.

That would be graffiti and street art, and the Public Works Department is looking to change that with its "Art of Basketball" project.

Since 2010, through a licensing agreement with the NBA, the PWD has featured a growing collection of NBA-themed pieces by leading graffiti and street artists from around the world. Their work includes player portraits, canvases expressing elements of the game and official NBA backboards transformed into works of high-impact art -- all representing hoops culture from streetball courts to the pro hardwood.

"Our passion is graffiti, street art and the urban landscape, and then coupled with sports and fashion," PWD curator Billi Kid told ESPN Playbook. "For the last two years, we've been focusing on 'Art of Basketball' because we feel there's so much meat on that bone.
