GIF: Melo kicks off Super Bowl weekend by tackling LeBron

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

In the midst of the Heat's 106-91 wins over the Knicks, LeBron James burst out in transition and Carmelo Anthony, faced with the same impossible decision so many defenders have been forced into against James, opted to give the foul.

It didn't look good. It wasn't that bad. But it didn't look good.

It looks like Melo throws him down, but it in reality, James just slips out of his grasp. Honestly. it's pretty impressive that Anthony can even stop him to that degree. There's a reason everyone says it's like a freight train. No flagrant was called on the play, but after the game, James had some attitude about it.

James finished with 30 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and six steals.
