LeBron James Picks the Miami Heat: Announcement and Reactions (VIDEO)

LeBron James Picks the Miami Heat: Announcement and ReactionsWho is the greatest basketball player of all time? Is it Michael Jordan? Kobe Bryant? ... Or is it LeBron James? For the past year, basketball fans have been engaged in wondering where LeBron James would end up. He's clearly one of the finest players of his generation, and he was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers -- a famously terrible basketball team. LeBron is actually from the great state of Ohio, and he started out by playing for his "home" team from Cleveland. But now, his contract is up. And so the greatest current basketball player can move to a different city, if he feels like it.

Speculation about LeBron's move was unending. First off, before we even got to LeBron's actual decision, there was constant guessing about what he would do. On tonight's 'Larry King Live' (weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN), Larry had on a couple of so-called "experts," who predicted that LeBron would move to New York. Incorrect! Very incorrect! Still, it's interesting to watch "experts" be immediately proved wrong at something, so that's fun.



Then, LeBron James actually told us what city he was going to. It was presented as a one-hour special on ESPN. (Thu., 9PM ET). Mr. James chose the Miami Heat. Chris Bosh also just joined that team during this free-agent period. So it'll be James, Bosh, and guard Dwayne Wade on the team.

The LA Lakers Are Very Concerned About Their Hair -- and Their Groins (VIDEO)

The LA Lakers Are Very Concerned About Their Hair -- and Their GroinsThe Los Angeles Lakers are now your 2010 World Champions. What will they do next? Will all the players stay on the team? Will coach Phil Jackson return next year? Will they manage to 'three-peat'?

Strangely enough, when the Lakers appeared on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC), they didn't seem all that focused on these questions. Rather, they discussed guard Sasha Vujacic's obsession with making sure that his hair looks awesome. Vujacic was caught primping on camera in a clip that host Jimmy Kimmel shared. The clip got plenty of laughter from the team. Then, the conversation moved on to groins -- and testicles.

A Busboy Defeats the NBA on 'Jimmy Kimmel'Busboy Ricardo Reyes is the 'Pop-a-Shot' master. He has defeated all challengers at the mini-basketball game, and his challengers have included NBA All-Stars Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. (You can see his victories here for yourself.)

Jimmy Kimmel and his staff discovered 'Pop-a-Shot' prodigy Reyes in a local bar, and brought him on the show. In addition to beating LeBron and Kobe at the game, Reyes has also beaten Charles Barkley and Carmelo Anthony. And so, what reward does Reyes get for his mini-basketball dominance?

Why, a new car, of course! On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC), Kimmel awards the unsuspecting Ricardo with a brand new Ford Mustang. And then, Reyes drives off into the sunset, the undefeated champion of 'Pop-a-Shot.' Perhaps one day he will return -- if his title ever needs defending. Until then, Mr. Reyes, we bid you adiós.

Kobe Bryant Is Defeated by a Busboy in BasketballLos Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant shows up on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night' (Thu., 8PM ET on ABC). Kobe tries to compete at what he's best at ... basketball. And then he loses to a busboy.

Though most people will agree that Kobe is one of the greatest NBA players of all time, he can't match the awesome skills of busboy Ricardo Reyes. The writing team of the 'Kimmel' show discovered Ricardo at a local bar, and learned that he is fantastically amazing at the mini-basketball game of 'Pop-a-Shot.' So now, Reyes takes on former MVP Bryant to discover who is the true champion.

And ... Kobe loses. Actually, Kobe gets destroyed. Ricardo beats him by the score of 82 to 58. Total dominance!

Spike Lee and Elvis Costello talk new projects - TCA Report

by Kristin Sample, posted Jul 11th 2008 4:23PM
Spike LeeAt TCA yesterday, two very big stars were on hand to discuss their new shows. Spike Lee attended the ESPN Films panel to promote his documentary Game Day with Kobe Bryant. And Elvis Costello was on hand at the Sundance Channel panel to talk about Spectacle: Elvis Costello with..., his new talk show.

ESPN announced several film projects, both documentary and theatrical. The network will be presenting four documentaries this fall, one of which is by acclaimed director Spike Lee. On the surface the film seems pretty bland; it's just cameras following Kobe Bryant around on game day. But I'm sure you want to hear what Lee said about his film.

Family Guy: Road to Rupert

Stewie Griffin - Family Guy(S05E09) For the first time in a month and a half, we finally have a new Family Guy. I'm not sure I understand the thought process behind the programming at Fox, but the bright side is it means we'll have plenty of new episodes for the second half of the season.

The FG team went back to familiar territory this week, bringing us another "Road to..." episode. If you close your eyes really tight, you can almost see the eventual special edition DVD commercial. Like "Road to Rhode Island" and "Road to Europe" before it, this one was split into two separate stories that had virtually nothing to do with each other. And also like those that came before, I preferred the Stewie and Brian story.
