Cleveland Cavaliers pounded the Miami Heat last night - 102-90 - and even more will laugh at LeBron James for being "in the bathroom" during player introductions, after showing up to the arena wearing a jacket saying "Long Live The King". Nobody will have enjoyed the win more than boxer Floyd "Money" Mayweather, who dropped $50,000 on the Cavs to cover the +12.5.
If Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski will ever leave that program to take an NBA job, you'd have to think this summer and the LA Lakers might be the time and place with Phil Jackson seeming committed to retirement. He's been close before to heading to the Lakeshow, by his own admission, and certainly is tight with Kobe Bryant by all indications.

If you didn't get your final vote in for Colin Cowherd's Rock Band March Madness, you're too late. The winners are...The Beatles.
Why the Ottawa Senators, and their fans, suck:
I love that Chad Ochocinco loves soccer, as you can see in the joy on his face when told he'll get to play in a reserve game, and spoke in glowing terms about the talents he's seen while working out with Sporting Kansas City, but watching this background vid below, it is clear to me he should be around a pro soccer about as much as Michael Jackson belonged around a kids tee-ball game.
