* Say what you want about he screwed Cleveland, butchered his announcement, and lost his playful on-court demeanor. As for me, I kind of like this version of LeBron: cold, edgy, even villainous.
* In a season in which he held the Vikings franchise in suspense about being able to return as starting quarterback, played like horsecrap all season, and sent inappropriate texts and photos to an Internet starlet who looks strikingly like a younger version of his own wife, I yet think the lowest point for Brett Favre was hawking autographed footballs commemorating the end of his consecutive games started streak on his website for $499.
