Did Jimmy Butler kick LeBron James in the head on purpose? [video]

You have to think that Miami Heat star LeBron James, if only for a moment, wished he was still wearing his protective mask during Sunday's game against the Chicago Bulls.

James, who broke his nose two weeks ago, got tangled up with Chicago's Jimmy Butler during the game. As each man fell to the ground, Butler's foot swung around and hit James in the side of his head. They sort of wrestled with each other while getting up and both were given a technical foul.

The Bulls defeated the Heat, 95-88, in overtime.
