The King came to play last night. As you know by now, LeBron James finished with 45 points, 15 rebounds and five assists (highlights here) to keep the Heat's season alive. Of course, all this does is set up James to get crushed by people if he fails to lead Miami to victory in Game 7 on Saturday. ESPN reporter Doris Burke did a nice job asking James about that after the game (although her closing line of "it was our pleasure tonight" was a little over-the-top). After his interview with Burke, James then had a beer thrown at him by a Celtics fan. But back to ESPN to close out this lead item: Despite letting LeBron hijack their network for a one-hour infomercial when they aired "The Decision," the Worldwide Leader in Sports needs to be reminded that he's not on the Cavaliers.

In honor of the Subway Series, I have one pair of Yankees headphones and one pair of Mets headphones to giveaway. In order to win, you must e-mail me (Jimmy_Traina@simail.com) the answer to the following question and put "Contest" in the subject line. If you fill out the form below, you won't be eligible. The first person to tell me who the last player was to wear No. 2 before Derek Jeter wins the Yankees headphones.
