UFC fighter Chael Sonnen, never at a loss to try to draw attention to himself, appeared on "Jim Rome on Showtime" on Wednesday night, and decided to call out LeBron James and the NBA Finals. "I think LeBron's a dork," James said. "I don't understand this whole thing. It frustrates me to hear that these guys are world champions. He won one world championship, and it was in the Olympic Games. It's so aggravating to hear a title be called a world championship when it's only done in America.

Don't call Pau Gasol soft. On Sunday afternoon, the 250-pound 7-footer stepped in front of LeBron James and nudged him when he saw James acting aggressively toward one of his teammates. The tussle happened at the end of the third quarter after James, frustrated over a non-call, gave a forearm shiver to Troy Murphy. Gasol immediately intervened and dealt James a bit of push. "I saw that he elbowed a little bit or shoved Troy," Gasol said. "At one point you have to say, 'It's enough.'" "If the officials don't make a big deal about it or don't make a certain call then you have to force the issue a little bit and make them understand this is going on, we're not going to take this kind of thing here.

Bryant looks to make the game-winner, no matter the obstacles: the shot clock winding down, poorly run offense, swarm of double teams. Usually nothing stops Bryant from taking the last shot. A courageous act for some, selfishness for others. James looks to the make the correct basketball play, no matter how much the public expects him to take the final shot. If he sees a double team, James finds the open guy, such as when he found Udonis Haslem open for a 16-footer in the Heat's loss Friday to Utah.
