Knix Tix Posted December 2, 2011 Share Posted December 2, 2011 ORLANDO SENTINEL December 1, 2011 Miami Heat star LeBron James had a little fun mocking Buffalo Bills receiver’s Steve Johnson controversial touchdown dance during a flag football game in which he competed against Kevin Durant. Johnson pretended to shoot himself in the leg to imitate Plaxico Burress’ shooting incident. The dance didn’t work out so well for Johnson’s reputation, but is LeBron James’ dance funnier or equally offensive? ESPN NFL analyst Hugh Douglas hit a nerve with @KingJames fans in the twitterverse after he ripped LeBron James for the dance mocking Burress’ legal troubles on ESPN’s First Take. Douglas looked into a camera, grabbed his neck to signify choking and said “how about this, because that’s what you did in the Finals. First and foremost, why don’t you learn how to play your game first instead of worrying about somebody else’s?” “That really bothered me making fun of Plaxico Burress. This man got shot and went to jail.” Douglas added, "Plaxico Burress played in the Super Bowl and he got a ring. Get a ring first before you talk about anybody, bottom line." In slight defense of James, it appears he was making fun of Steve Johnson’s touchdown celebration rather than Burress. But details, schmetails. http://articles.orla...plaxico-burress http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqrsjibykUc&context=C2ef86ADOEgsToPDskIxzyhnzn_DkogFg7invOtB Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
