LeBron James needs one more win to silence critics, at least temporarily. It looked like James and the Heat were in trouble during Game 4 of the NBA Finals last night when he went down late in the fourth quarter with cramps, but he returned to hit a huge three-pointer and Miami never looked back. Say what you want to about LeBron, you can't deny that he really shined after the game when he called out teammate Dwyane Wade for wearing ridiculous glasses. As for the Thunder, it's a shame Russell Westbrook's magnificent 43-point effort was tarnished by a late gaffe in which he mistakenly fouled Mario Chalmers. Based on this remake of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit, we imagine the folks in Seattle were doing cartwheels at that moment.
Bryce And The Biebs
I guess it would only make sense that 19-year-old phenom Bryce Harper would use the music of 18-year-old phenom Justin Bieber for his at-bat song.
Inside Information
Rays reliever Joel Peralta was ejected from last night's game against the Nationals after umpires discovered pine tar on his glove. Peralta pitched for Washington in 2010, so there's a decent chance someone on the Nats may have ratted him out. This did not sit well with Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon, who had this to say about Washington manager Davey Johnson asking the umps to check Peralta's glove: "It was kind of a p---y move."
