LeBron James is lucky he still has all his teeth right now. Josh McRoberts did his best to knock every single one of them out.

You've probably heard that the Los Angeles Lakers are playing the Miami Heat tonight. It's kind of a big deal, and it may even be an NBA Finals preview. At the very least, it's a chance to see LeBron, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Chris Bosh out on the same court.

But McRoberts got it in his head to steal the spotlight by giving King James an elbow to the face. 

If you missed it, direct your eyes to the above video. In it, you'll see McRoberts do his best Andrew Bynum impression, much to LeBron's chagrin.

McRoberts was T'd up for throwing the elbow, and he also had to put up with some jawing from King James himself, who was not happy at all.

I wouldn't be very thrilled either if I was in his place. He's King James. Seriously, who the hell is Josh McRoberts?

Answer: He's a guy who's not good at anything. Maybe that's why he decided to make like Sean Avery and do a little enforcing.

Hell of a lot of good it did. The Heat had a six-point lead at the time, and they're now poised to take a double-digit lead into the half.

The lesson here, Mr. McRoberts, is never to do anything. Just take a seat on the bench and think about what you've done.

And rest assured, if you elbow King James again, David Stern won't be pleased. After all, we already know he doesn't like the Lakers.
