LeBron James didn't take too kindly to pre-game comments made by the Nets' Reggie Evans who said that beating the Heat wouldn't mean anything because they won a title during a lockout season.

James said to reporters after Miami beat Brooklyn for the third and final time this season that Evans has no right to make those comments because he has never won a championship and therefore he has no idea what it takes to win one.

"You can't just come out and say something like that versus a champion. No one knows what it takes unless you've done it. You can't sit here and judge and talk about a team winning a championship unless you've done it. (Evans) hasn't done it. [L]et me look at his numbers real quick -- he had no offensive rebounds, so we did our number on him."

The Heat won 105-85, with Evans grabbing 6 rebounds and 2 steals in 20 minutes. James also took to Twitter to fire back at Evans. https://twitter.com/KingJames/status/296734425683726336
