Dirk calls Wade, James 'childish ... ignorant'

Dirk Nowitzki, who was bothered by a sinus infection throughout Game 4 of the NBA finals, called the antics of Miami's LeBron James and Dwyane Wade "a little childish, a little ignorant," after the pair of Heat players were caught seemingly mocking the Dallas star by simulating being sick during the shootaround prior to Game 5.

"I've been in this league for 13 years. I've never faked an injury or an illness before," Nowitzki said. "But (the video) happened. It's over to me. It's not going to add anything extra to me. This is the NBA finals. If you need an extra motivation, you have a problem."

Wade explained that the video -- which was taken by the CBS affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth and shows the guard coughing and then saying to James, "Did you hear me cough? Think I'm sick" -- was taken out of context.

"First of all, it wasn't fake coughing," Wade said. "I actually did cough. And with...

Nate Robinson cited for public urination
By: admin

Former Celtic guard Nate Robinson was cited for public urination early Friday morning, leading to a summons being issued a court date of June 22. According to the Associated Press, the offense normally carries a $50 fine.

According to AP, a White Plains, N.Y. officer spotted Robinson urinating on a sidewalk outside a bookstore around 2 a.m. Posting on his Twitter account, the guard wrote he made a "silly mistake," promising it would never happen again.

Robinson was traded from Celtics to Oklahoma City last season in the deal which also sent Kendrick Perkins to the Thunder. He played in just four games with OKC, averaging 7.5 minutes per game, having undergone arthroscopic knee surgery in early March.

Lapierre: Goal 'little lucky but we'll take it'

The game-winning goal off the stick of Maxim Lapierre was a "lucky" break by the admission of the man who scored it. Lapierre was positioned to the right of Tim Thomas when he took a pass off the end boards and flipped it off the backside of Thomas. The puck trickled off of Thomas' pads and dropped over the goal line, providing the margin of victory in Vancouver's 1-0 win in Game 5. 

"I was actually going backdoor for a tip," Lapierre told Versus in a postgame interview, referring to a pass he was expecting from Kevin Bieksa in front of Thomas. "That was a good play. We got a little lucky but we'll take it."

"The puck got across the line by a couple of inches and that was the difference," added Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault in his postgame press conference. 

As for coming out stronger and outhitting the Bruins, 47-27, Lapierre said the Canucks were more in control.
