Wednesday Mixed Bag
- Some guy wanted to make a documentary about LeBron James, so he loaned the James family a bunch of money a while ago. Now, he says, the James family is renegging on the deal. He's suing for lost profits to the tune of $5+ million. UPDATE: LeBron James testifies he never told the man to make the movie.
- The same article above, by Phil Trexler in the Akron Beacon Journal, makes it clear that LeBron hasn't yet mastered the top performance diet, although he does have the tipping thing down already: "For the record, James, 20, ate two breaded chicken sandwiches, two small bags of Doritos and one package of vanilla Hostess cupcakes. He washed it all down with an iced tea and paid his tab with a $100 bill."
- The Dallas Morning News sends off Michael Finley.
- When he's not commenting on TrueHoop, ESPN's Darren Rovell is writing about people putting LeBron James on the hood of a NASCAR car. (Is it just me, or did they make his skin significantly lighter?)
- Anybody want Willie Green? He might be out 6-9 months after surgery. He still hasn't signed his contract with Philadelphia. Maybe someone could swoop in and nab him. (Now I'm trying to dream up interesting NBA news.)
- This guy could be Allan Houston's uglier, less Christian, cousin.
- Derek Anderson is visiting Houston.
- Tracy McGrady knows baseball.
