After the Heat pulled off a shocking comeback against the Bulls last night (they used an 18-3 run to close out the game), Chicago forward Joakim Noah called Miami "Hollywood as hell." (Since Hollywood is the home of acting, the comment has some merit after this embarrassing display by LeBron James.) This did not sit well with Dwyane Wade's girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union, who tweaked Noah with a Tweet.

This Should Cause A RuckusScottie Pippen said this morning that LeBron James may be a better player than Michael Jordan. We eagerly await M.J.'s response.
