Cheap Shots: LeBron gets his shirt sleeves in a knot

Also, Dennis Rodman says fans can tell him where to go

Tuesday, March 11, 2014 - 12:01 am

Miami Heat star LeBron James complained last week that the short-sleeve jerseys the team wore contributed to a poor shooting night. Also, his headband was kind of tight, his socks kept bunching up around his little toe and some guy in the crowd was chewing his nachos too loud.

As the Worm turns

Former NBA player Dennis Rodman said he will not go back to North Korea if the American people don't want him to go. As long as Rodman goes away, I'm not sure most people have a real preference for the location.

Paging Dr. Phil

Former Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson might return to basketball for a front-office job with the New York Knicks. I truly believe Jackson could fix the Knicks, assuming he has a time machine and access to Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant in their 20s.

The opposite of perfection

Detroit Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler told ESPN The Magazine that he hopes his former team, the Texas Rangers, go 0-162. Informed of his comments, the Houston Astros said, “Wait, we called dibs on that record.”

Slow down, Tex

The NCAA tabled an idea that would have slowed college football offenses by requiring 10 seconds to run off the play clock before a snap. Alabama coach Nick Saban, one of the rule's proponents, will be forced to try to promote another alternative, such as allowing coaches of big, slow, lumbering defenses 25 timeouts per game.

Upon further review

Major League Baseball will not use its expanded replay system for the season-opening series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks in Sydney. Controversial calls Down Under will be reviewed the old-fashioned way, with managers kicking dirt on the umpires' shoes.
