LeBron James Stares Down Joakim Noah After Dunking Over Him, Gets Technical

It's safe to say LeBron James and Joakim Noah aren't exactly big fans of one another.

After getting past Chicago Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler in Game 3 on Friday night, James threw down a ferocious dunk over Noah. Following the jam, LeBron stared down Noah, earning himself a technical foul.

Noah wasn't too happy about the display and tried to get in LeBron's face, resulting in a technical for him, too.

After the game, James explained to reporters the motivation behind his staredown: 

I'm a father with three kids. It got very disrespectful. I'm OK with competing against Jo. I love the competitive nature, but we should leave it there. The disrespectful words that he said to me were uncalled for.
