• Calling Card
Announcer Dick Enberg, 75, who's already been honored by both the pro football and basketball halls of fame, is back to covering baseball as play-by-play man for his hometown Padres. He told me he believes any announcer who can call a baseball game—especially on radio—at a high level can call any sport. "There is less action, but there's also an opportunity to be able to ... appreciate and report the subtleties and nuances of the game," he said. "It's an announcer's game."
• Flop Sweat
Heat forward Chris Bosh insists he never considered going to Cleveland had LeBron James chosen to stay with the Cavs. Bosh says it was Pat Riley, and not James or Dwyane Wade, who persuaded him to sign with Miami. He also acknowledged what will be at stake next season: "We need to win a championship. It's not going to be easy, but if we don't achieve that I would think that everybody would feel like they had failed."
• Line of the week
Magic center Dwight Howard, who last week headlined an NBA promotional tour to India, on the highlight of his trip:
"Seeing tigers [in Bangalore]. I've always wanted to own my own. Just to see them a couple of inches away—it's amazing."
THE FINE PRINT: Don't feel bad for Dustin Johnson. PGA rules are clear. You cannot ground your club in a bunker. Or in the rear window of a Cadillac Escalade.
