Hey Josh McRoberts, that's Andrew Bynum's move. Except LeBron James is a tad bit bigger, stronger and faster than J.J. Barea.
In the first quarter of the Lakers showdown with Miami, LeBron drove hard to the basket. Metta World Peace grabbed him from behind and then McRoberts came over the top to meet LeBron. But instead of even remotely going for the ball, McRoberts threw a forearm right into LeBron's grill.
McRoberts was assessed a technical for the move. I don't know if he was trying to send a message, but there's a difference between a clean hard foul at the rim and a total cheapshot, which is what McRoberts pulled.
