It's not every day that NBA coaches exchange words with superstar players during games. However, that's exactly what happened during Wednesday's game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Miami Heat.

Tempers flared in the middle of the meaningful game.

During a timeout late in the second quarter, Thunder coach Scott Brooks had to be pulled away from Heat superstar LeBron James after this play:
