LeBron James appeared to stare down Charlotte Bobcats' owner Michael Jordan on a breakaway dunk in the third quarter of the Miami Heat's Game 3 win.

After picking up his dribble and taking flight, James had his head turned in Jordan’s direction and kept his stare as he ascended toward the basket.

After the game, James denied giving the glare to Jordan.

“No, no. Don’t start that. Absolutely not, man. Absolutely not,” James said. “I was able to read McRoberts, get a steal and push the lead back up. I absolutely didn’t look at MJ, for sure.”

Whether or not James started down Jordan on the dunk was made more interesting by the Donald Sterling situation. James said there's "no room for Donald Sterling in our league," while Jordan declined to comment.
