HoopsHype Nazr Mohammed rumors

A few minutes later, Chicago forward Carlos Boozer had finished complaining about a noncall inside when James dribbled into the Miami forecourt. Mohammed tried to grab James to prevent a transition basket. James extended an arm to create space and sent Mohammed tumbling to the floor. “I seen him hawking me down for a long time, and I seen him come with one of those club fouls, which was unnecessary,” James said. “I basically just tried to protect myself, stand my ground.” New York Times

Mohammed said he'd be "shocked" if his shove of the Heat's LeBron James that led to Mohammed's second- quarter ejection Friday draws a suspension. The Bulls felt James embellished Mohammed's shove, with Thibodeau even calling it a flop. "Nazr is a quiet guy. My father always told me the quiet ones are who you have to worry about," Nate Robinson said of Mohammed's toughness. "I wouldn't put it past Nazr to move him out. Nazr is a great guy." Chicago Tribune

When everyone else watched Chicago's Nazr Mohammed make a run at James, shove him tumbling onto his back on Friday night, the Bulls witnessed something else: confirmation of a conspiracy. Mohammed earned the ejection, and the rest of these Bulls earned the indignation and outrage that they need for public retaliation. "We're well aware of what's going on," Thibodeau seethed late Friday. "I'm watching how things are going. I watch very closely. What I'm seeing is… "…We'll adjust accordingly." Yahoo! Sports

“I’m sitting back here looking at the play and I’m just disappointed,” Mohammed said. “I wanted to be out there so bad. I wanted to help my teammates win the game, and to be back here watching over something like a push … I’m disappointed I let somebody else cause a reaction like that when I knew there was going to be so much of a microscope on the game and the physicality.” CBSSports.com

Nazr Mohammed started at center for coach Gregg Popovich when the Spurs defeated Richard Hamilton and the Pistons in the 2005 NBA Finals. Beyond that bond, Mohammed has fond memories of the 1½ seasons he played for Popovich, who sounded a bit like Phil Jackson with his unconventional methods. "Pop's great. He's a terrific coach. Everybody knows that," Mohammed said Sunday. "The success of his teams and the respect that he gets from his players and ex-players says it all. He's a good person and a good man. "He did some unbelievable things. Sometimes he comes in and you think it's going to be about the game and he might talk to you about current events. And this is after a loss. You're like, 'Oh. Cool.' I got a lot of respect for him and how he operates." Chicago Tribune
