Chuck Hayes Hates LeBron’s Dancing, Too

James has already ticked off Joakim Noah, and now Chuck Hayes has voiced displeasure with LBJ’s dancing on the sidelines during blowouts: “Yeah (it was wrong), but if Joakim Noah and the Bulls have a problem with it, beat him, he won’t dance,’ Hayes said. ‘I notice that the Cavs, they do all their sideline acts in the game when they’re up big. When it’s a close game, they don’t do that. Make them respect you and they won’t do it. To showboat another professional, it’s disrespectful. If you feel disrespected, do something about it within the game, nothing dirty. Eventually, all the dancing and acting will stop. They only do it when they’re up big.’ Shane Battier, however, had another theory about why James danced. ‘Dancing With The Stars is quite the platform to launch a career,’ Battier said. ‘Maybe, he’s trying to launch a career. LeBron’s a smart businessman. I wouldn’t put anything past him.”’

    and yeah the dancing is pretty annoying just focus on the game lebron not 2010

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    thank you, chuck hayes! if you don’t want him to dance, just beat him. don’t tell him it’s corny when you’re on the bench down 20. beat him. you don’t want kg to bark in your face? beat him. back in the days if you didn’t want to see antoine’s shimmy? you just had to beat him.

  • riggs

    gotta love shane, he’s a funny dude.

  • Kadavour

    well said Chuck, spot on. Shane is to PC for my taste. Great defender though. Last time Bron was in Houston they shut him down, lets see what happens tonight.

  • PrimeSinister

    I miss seeing Antoine do his little shimmy dance, it used to crack me up!

  • Bruno

    who doesn’t hate lebron dancin’

  • vtrobot

    shane is funny. a funny, good defending dork.

  • Sparker

    shane battier gets all ironic on ‘bron

    Ladies and Gentlemen, here’s Lebron, the man who won’t shake your hands but will dance in yo face.

  • LA Huey

    I heard Lebron set up Amanda Knox. He’s such a bastard.

  • Rob

    God, I hate Lebron “Dancin’ Queen” James

  • Peteroc

    Lebrons Homo. Straight up.

  • kudos

    of coures lebron only dances in games he’s up big. he doesn’t have the ball’s to dance if he knows their boutta lose.

  • http://www.yahoo.com logues

    how come he never dances against the good teams?

  • tavoris

    Kevin Mchale said it best…knock them on their asses if u feel disrespected. They wont’ dance anymore if they know they bout to taste the floor.

  • Nigel

    Giving a little jig at the after a big shot is cool. But don’t bring the shoultrain line to the free throw line. Or on the bench for that matter. Just keep your class throughout the game and respect the opponent. Noah was 100% right. If the Bulls were up big and Noah turn the court into a disco, everybody would be all over him. Especially after LeBron said some words about him.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    logues: he does.

  • Clark

    Well at least Mike Conley got back at LBJ for Joakim… Noah’s Bulls loosing to the Cavs is much much much less embarrassing than Lebron’s Cavs loosing to the Griz…

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Chuck is that dude!
    Beat the Cavs tonight, Rockets!!

  • somedude

    Lebron’s just been coming off…douchey the last year or two. I guess that’s what happens when someone’s talent is adulated(and really, rightfully so) from such a young age. But even MJ could hold back from making displays like that.

  • jeremy

    cmon lebron

  • Tommy Patron

    I really enjoy watching the close ups of LeBron every time a call goes against him. At his first opportunity he gives the offending ref a full reenactment of the play with his ridiculous wide-mouthed talking with his mouthpiece still in.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    you enjoy odd things.

    Jordan was the biggest trash talker EVER, maybe in the history of basketball. Jordan definitely loved rubbing his success in the face of his opponents. I’m not going to judge whether that’s a good thing or not, but it did make for some entertaining basketball.
    I don’t think he danced, though.

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    How wonder how many more d!ckhead acts LBJ is going to commit before those with his meat stuffed in their mouth are going to be able to discontinue long enough from their manlove to see the man has absolutely no class

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    Hayes’ take on it shows sportsmanship and positivity. That said, some would question Lebron’s behaviour when his team is at the wrong end of blowouts, like after last season’s Orlando series. Sportsmanship has to go both ways. I also think it’s a matter of time before an Orlando or Denver or another good team beats Cleveland and rubs it back in their faces by mimicking the dance routine.

  • http://www.slamonline.com barnabusb

    Maybe someone will just punch him in the face and take the suspension one day.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Who knew Shane Battier had a sense of humor?

  • BostonBaller

    Jordan did talk a lot of junk but he was talking back and forth with his opponents and I don’t remember hearing that he disrespected them with his mouth. Trash talking usually goes both ways during a game. My man Bird talked a lot too. Dancing is a bit much if you ask me (you didn’t) and it surely is disrespectful then again I thought the who;e picture taking thing was tasteless too (harmless but tasteless)

    He would have already been floored in the Mahorn/Laimbeer days. lol.

  • http://youknowhec@aol.com Hangtime Hec

    Trash talking and dancing are two diffrent things teddy. Jordan was talking to get into his opponents head, while Dancing Queen was just….Dancing. Its humaliting. But like Chuck put it, if you dont like it, do somthing about it.

  • Rob

    @Joel O’s. Can we please fast-forward to that?

  • tavoris

    @360-I’m wondering the same thing, dude.

  • http://www.youtube.com/tripledouble TripleDouble

    I’m with Noah. Lebron just isn’t ‘cool’. Jordan, now he was cool.

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    @Rob: You have to be able to take it… if you want to give it, right?

  • don

    chuck’s right, if lebron is too busy trying to win the game, he won’t dance. problem with that game against the bulls was, bulls weren’t keeping james busy.

  • http://www.sixers.com 360vue

    @don Oh yeah, the problem was the Bulls; for being unable to step up to a team who went .800+ last year and are only stronger this year… Yeah, that’s the problem here!

  • Kelly

    It wasn’t like Lebron went over to the Bulls’ bench and danced. He was in his own area, and was just feeling good, and maybe listening to some dancing music. Who can say what he was thinking. He may have not even been thinking about the Bulls (or maybe not even thinking at all). Why make such a big deal out of it. He was dancing in his own area. From what I’ve seen of Lebron, he likes to dance. Don’t always assume a wrong motive of someone.

  • knock knock

    Who the hell care’s if lebron likes to dance. Kobe likes to ride bmx bikes and throw rocks at cars, but he wouldn’t be doing it at the same time the lakers are up 25 on the knicks. Lebron acts like a lil’ girl, one who has no idea how to dance.

  • Ghost (of Oliver Miller)

    Maybe he’ll get Charlie Warded – or was it Chris Childed – (same difference). Whoever two pieced kobe

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Childed. Definitely Chris Childs.

  • http://www.youtube.com/ The Promise

    Sorry Bron, you are a great player, but you sure cant dance. And Chuck, truer words have never been spoken. Have you ever seen Lebron dancing in a game when he is down? Didnt think so. So, smoke him if you dont want him dancin.

  • nicko

    wait wait wait….HOW THE F*** can joakim noah talk about dancing…does anyone remember this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQ3y5hTHuP4

  • Shem

    Chuck Hayes is right but come on guys, you ALL have to respect Joakhim Noah standing up when absolutely noone on the team did anything. Everyone called this guy a bust, he’s playing good getting angry i like him. One thing that I just HAD to say… Gotta wonder why Slam put D Rose at 18

  • MikeC.

    Where in whole wide world have all the Charles Oakleys gone? Somebody out there can’t be afraid to say “Hey Lebron, if you dance against our team, I will bite your face.” No flagrant foul. No in-game fight. Just walk away from the game while it’s still going on, saunter over to the Cavs’ bench, and bite a chunk out of the dude’s face.
    @Joel: I agree. I wonder if Lebron would be so eager to get jiggy with it if Marcin Gortat busted out the windmills and headspins during a Magic blowout.

  • http://slamonline.com niQ

    Houston just beat the Cavs. Anyone see if Lebron danced?

  • Baguma

    those bulls and thier symphasizers should stop whining like little b*tches. beat lebron and he won’t dance. did they see him dancing in houston?

  • http://slamonline acethat

    chris childs and Charlie Ward…I thought I was the only that got them mixed up.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    I mentioned this to John Krolik on twitter earlier but .. “I really hope the Rockets beat the hell out of the Cavs today”. I was right.
    No dance for you!

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    LMAO @ Mike C.

  • http://www.gmail.com rushmelo

    Lebron James is one of the most over rated basketballers!
    I did not know that not going to college had such a negative impact on people
    Dancing against a team that cant beat you
    not shaking hands with a team that exposed you.
    you phony!you fake!big nose loser!
    why wasn’t chyu’ dancing den?
    or did you take dance classes with your mother this summer?
    losing by 10 to the rockets without McGrady and Yao.the 2 stars of the team.
    actually lebron cant hide the fact that he’s gonna get a $150 million contract this summer by the knicks.
    so mite as well start celebrating now.

    HATERS smh…If u don’t like it Ball Up..if u were hoopin on the concrete you know people showout and what do you do? BALL UP…

  • Juice20

    yea if u want him to stop dancin shut him up plain and simple

  • Bud

    Chuck is right: Beat him and it doesn’t happen. In fact, the last time the Bulls and Cavs played this year, LeBron wasn’t dancing, he was CRYING. Whining that he got fouled at the end of the game. A game he lost… to the Bulls… bad as they are right now. I’m all for knocking him down, too. Hard fouls. Every time.

  • Celboogz

    Battier and Hayes and Noah suck anyway lmao. Stop bit**ing and D’Up. Plain and Simple.

  • D-mac

    if u beat the Cavs, they wont dance, simple as that. he didnt dance last night agaisnt the Rockets. Noah danced on tv after winning the NCAA championship, is that not throwing it in opponents face? besides, Lebron wasnt dancing to throw in Bulls face, he was acting silly like he always does but i guess losers take everything personal. Noah needs to take his weak game personal and improve on his flicted set shot and cut that dirty hair off! lmao
