For your Monday reading...

--Thanks for visiting as always, should you have some more free time I've got a new ESPN story, or as LeBron would call it, a new ESPN joint up here.  Also if you have an ESPN Insider membership you read my Five Observations.


--By the way, in the picture on ESPN that's Gatorade LeBron is drinking...shhhhhhh.


--I've gotten more calls from Israel over the last few days than Condolezza Rice.  There's a ton of interest over there about the Cavs game with Maccabi Tel Aviv tomorrow.  Maccabi is one of the best teams in the Euroleague, but they've lost their best players for various reasons (including this summer's little mini-war).  I don't expect it to be a game (read more American pigheadedness).


--Truehoop has the new LeBron commercial.  Not only does LBJ refer to dunk contests as bourgeois (did he learn that from Warren Buffett?) there's also a Sanford & Son reference.  Now, there's a theme song I'd love to hear at the Q.


--I was at Verizon Wireless Arena over the weekend in Manchester, N.H.  Much to my surprise there was no, ahem, wireless network!  However, the media who was there did get treated better in that minor league venue than we now do at the Q.


--Saturday night I was asking Daniel Gibson where his nickname Boobie came from.  He told me his mother, who pronounces it more like Booo-beeeee.  Anyway, the Plain Dealer's Branson Wright, a proud Cincinnati native, asked if he knew who Boobie Clark was.  Gibson said no, and Wright told him to "look him up."  Which I have done for all of you.  Gibson's reply: "He should look me up."


--Col. Nathan R. Jessep (Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men) said: "You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls. And those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You?"  NBA players need guns, too.
