Oh, Tom Thibodeau, you sweet-talker, you (Video)

Ball Don't Lie

And here you thought all Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau ever talked about was rebounding, blowing up pick-and-rolls and taking away corner 3s. Nah, man. Sometimes he's smooth.

Luckily for the Brooklyn Nets, referee Tony Brothers seems unsusceptible to Thibs' rakish wiles — the Nets took only three more free throws than the Bulls (17 to 14) in the first half of Saturday afternoon's Game 4, and Chicago leads Brooklyn 58-55 at the break. Let us never doubt the integrity of NBA officials again!
