Did LeBron bump into his coach on purpose? [video]

Yesterday, in a loss against the Mavs, it appears that LeBron James may have intentionally run into his head coach, Erik Spoelstra, out of frustration heading into a time out. Take a look:

ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, who used to cover LeBron in Cleveland, says that a similar incident happened when LeBron ran into Mike Brown against the Knicks.

I don’t think this is a big deal, though it certainly appears in both situations that LeBron didn’t make any effort to get out of the way of his coach. The thing I don’t get is why head coaches always make a big show of walking out onto the court looking frustrated when they call a time out. I realize that’s where they wait to talk to their team, but when you cross paths with frustrated players 200 times a season, you’re bound to have a collision or two.

Or maybe this is LeBron’s way of saying he’s ready for Pat Riley.
