LeBron James and the Miami Heat just couldn't get it done. After all the promises, hype, fanfare and general hoopla that followed "The Decision," LeBron's maiden season with the Heat ended on Sunday night when the Dallas Mavericks outplayed them in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
To his credit, LeBron did lead all Heat scorers with 21 points. But just as it was in the first five games of the series, he could have and should have done so much more.
Meanwhile, there are no such complaints to be made about Dirk Nowitzki. The Mavs' sweet-shooting big man finally earned his first ring, and he was also named the Finals MVP. As many have already pointed out, he can now be counted among the greatest players in NBA history (although the Larry Bird comparisons really need to stop).
In the football world, Terrelle Pryor is still weighing his options as far his future is concerned. Earlier on Monday, he took a major step toward finding a job by hiring uber-agent Drew Rosenhaus as his representative.
It's a busy day around the world of sports. For all the latest news and notes, just keep it here and wait for updates.
