One fan at Chicago's United Center clearly did not get that memo. As the Miami Heat's LeBron James walked into a tunnel toward the dressing rooms after the game against the Bulls, a fan in the stands reached down and attempted to snatch James' headband from him. James, a 6-foot-8, 250-pound forward, was not feeling the surprise assault on his head, and did a turn to stare down the fan for a few moments.

But as the Lakers get deeper into the schedule, their coach can't help but think he might never again return to certain cities. Chicago won't be one of them, but Friday night marked the Lakers' only scheduled game this season in the Windy City, where Jackson, 65, coached the Bulls to six championships. When he decided to coach again this season, Jackson said it would be his "last stand" on the bench.

National identity is a fraught issue for the country's Arab Israelis, who often feel like outsiders in their country.
