Tweet of the Day: The Miami Heat Are WWE Champions

The old adage has always been that “it’s great to be the King.”

However, for some, it is great simply to be around and next to the king—as would be evident by being teammates of King James. He has helped in leading his team to three-straight NBA Finals and two-straight NBA championships.

He is a benevolent king.

Not only does Miami Heat star LeBron James get great gifts for himself, he rewards his team with great gifts of their own. Wednesday afternoon he graciously gifted his team with championship belts (courtesy of World Wrestling Entertainment).

Tweet of the Day: LeBron James Acknowledges Wakeup Call

Not for the faint of heart among two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat fans, Wednesday night—after a two-day trip that included a stop by the White House—the “Heatles” fell to the Washington Wizards in disastrous fashion. The loss was their third straight.

Many have insinuated that the Heat have been coasting through the early part of the season. Prior to Wednesday’s game against the Wizards, reigning MVP LeBron James addressed the coasting talk, “We’ll see Wednesday how I’m coasting. You’ll see the numbers I’ll put up on Wednesday. Just watch.”

Famous last words? Pride before the fall? Pick your cliched idiom.

The Heat fell behind 43-18 in the first quarter alone, giving up a lead as high as 34 before attempting to flip their proverbial switch. They drew within nine before finally falling 97-114.

Tweet of the Day: NBA, Players Remember Nelson Mandela

Many amazing men have walked the earth having had a profound impact on the world with their lives. Men like Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr.. Their deaths were monumental and the cause of grief to many.

Former South African President Nelson Mandela died Thursday at the age of 95.

Mandela was instrumental in bringing about the end of Apartheid (racial segregation) and ushering in an era of ethnic equality in South African politics. His efforts earned him the Nobel Peace Prize.

Addressing his passing, United States President Barack Obama spoke to the press from the White House.

He achieved more than could be expected of any man. Today he’s gone home, and we’ve lost one of the most influential, courageous and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this earth.”

Amidst a crazy day of sports — that included the top team in college football losing on a last-second field goal return for a touchdown — one of the top stories circulating on the Internet Saturday was that of the untimely tragic death of actor Paul Walker.

Walker, 40, who was best known for his iconic role as Brian O’Conner in The Fast and the Furious films, died in a fiery single-car crash in Santa Clarita, California.

The combination of TMZ having broken the story and a death-related hoax involving Walker having just circulated the Internet made the news hard to believe.

However, hours after the crash, his reps updated both his Twitter and Facebook accounts confirming the horrifying news.
