LeBron James blasts Reggie Evans after Heat victory

Reggie Evans found himself mired in a bit of controversy last night. After comparing Miami Heat forward LeBron James to teammates Joe Johnson and Andray Blatche, saying that he was “no different” from those two, he added that the Heat’s championship wasn’t a “real” championship because it occurred during a lockout season.

James responded with a LeBronian 24 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 assists in a blowout victory over the Nets, and had some sharp words for Evans after the game. Via ESPN:

“You can’t just come out and say something like that versus a champion,” James said. “No one knows what it takes unless you’ve done it. You can’t sit here and judge and talk about a team winning a championship unless you’ve done it. (Evans) hasn’t done it.”

James then looked down at the post-game stat sheet.

“Let me look at his numbers real quick — he had no offensive rebounds, so we did our number on him,” James said.

Evans had six defensive rebounds and did not score in 20 minutes. James said he did not speak to Evans during the game.

“For what? I let my game do the talking,” James said. “I’m not going to sit here and give Reggie Evans a lot of press, because that is what is going to happen for the next couple days.”

After hearing of Evans’ comments before the game, James tweeted this:

Thankfully, Evans has a good sense of humor, as evidenced by his Twitter feed after last night’s loss:
