Snapshot: Michael Jordan and LeBron James hug it out as Miami burn off Bobcats

Miami marched into round two of the playoffs while San Antonio levelled their series with the Mavericks.

THAT’S IT DONE and dusted. Now, move along, nothing to see here… right?

That certainly seems to be the message being presented after LeBron James celebrated his 31 points in Miami Heat’s decisive game four playoff win over the Charlotte Bobcats by embracing the one and only Michael Jordan.

On Saturday, it looked suspiciously like James had stared down the Bobcats owner in the middle of finishing off a powerful counter-attack move in Game 3. The Heat star denied that was the case and then sought out Jordan last night for a visual display of respect.
