Following an embarrassing Decision and an abysmal 2011 NBA Finals performance, a humbled, ridiculously talented LeBron James captured his first professional championship last night, as the Miami Heat finished off the Oklahama City Thunder in five very impressive games.

The closeout was a blowout, with LeBron notching a triple double and Miami winning 121-106.

"I did it the right way; I didn't short-cut anything," James said, responding to critics who have argued he did take a short-cut by joining two fellow stars on the Heat. "It's the hardest thing I've ever done."

It would be difficult to argue that James, Dwyane Wade and the Heat didn't work hard for this title. They became the first team in league history to win it all after trailing in three separate series, easily dispatching a Finals opponent who looked unstoppable leading into the matchup.

Even Cleveland Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, who positively went off on LeBron after his departure in 2010, had to send congratulations to the growing legend. Sort of.

"Great NBA season," Gilbert Tweeted last night. "Enjoyed playoffs. Congratulations to Miami & OKC for an exciting Finals. Back to work on next weeks promising Cavs draft."

Michelle Rodman says NBA great Dennis Rodman barged into her house drunk last month, attacked her, then insisted on taking her and their son out for breakfast.

There, he proceeded to slam 4-6 J├Ągermeister shots, according to TMZ.

Dennis' ex-wife, Michelle has obtained a temporary restraining order against Dennis over the May 28 incident. She wants to make the order permanent now.

Michelle claims Dennis had shown up to her house wasted at 2:30 a.m. that way, completely unannounced, and demanded to see his 11-year-old son.

Michelle said Dennis attacked her when she refused, shoving her onto a bed, then took off - only to return hours later, still intoxicated, for breakfast.

Dennis wanted to take his son out to eat, and Michelle obliged on the condition she came with. At the restaurant, Dennis proceeded to do the shots.

She claimed Dennis then repeatedly made comments about her boyfriend, saying, "You're f**king this white guy!?" Rodman clearly has some issues.

It's unclear if Dennis will testify, but he is due in another Orange County courtroom later today to fight his $51,000-a-month child support payments.

Chicago Bears cornerback Charles "Peanut" Tillman did not take kindly to learning that a Windy City-area girl's teacher was disrespecting his team in a math problem.

Tillman was recently supporting his Cornerstone Foundation at a sporting goods store. He received an autograph request from the daughter of the store's owner.

The teenager was doing her math homework at the time, and showed him one of the problems given to her by her teacher, John Amrein of Round Lake Middle School.

The problem did not sit well with Tillman.

Tillman

"The Packers play the Bears 4 times in two seasons. The Packers, being a much better team, have an 80% chance of winning each game," the question read.

Ouch. Given that assumption, "What is the probability that the Bears win all four games? What is the probability that the Bears win at least one game?"

Tillman did give the autograph to the girl, but he also wrote a note to the teacher in question, calling him out for bashing his NFL team. He wrote:

Dwyane Wade is currently battling the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals.

But the elite shooting guard was faced with an obstacle far greater than guarding Kevin Durant this weekend, when his estranged ex-wife attempted to kidnap the former couple's two children.

A rep for the Cook County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that Siohvaughn Funches-Wade was arrested for allegedly trying to abduct the boys, saying in a statement:

"Siohvaughn Funches-Wade was charged with two counts of attempted child abduction, two counts of unlawful visitation interference and one count of resisting arrest."

She posted $10,000 bond and will appear in court again this August.

Dwyane - who is dating actress Gabrielle Union - has legal custody of the children and will reportedly use this incident to limit Siohvaughn's visitation rights, considering it's not even her first foray into seriously shady behavior.

In the past couple years, Siohvaughn has sued Union for causing emotional distress and also accused Wade of giving her a STD.

Dottie Sandusky, whose disgraced husband Jerry Sandusky is accused of 52 felony counts of child sex abuse, took the stand in his trial Tuesday afternoon.

Dottie Sandusky has stood by her husband, posting his bail, accompanying him to court and issuing a statement last year that proclaimed his innocence.

Whether her remarks will change the direction of the case is an open question, but her testimony, at least early on, focused on how she and Jerry met.

One witness has testified that he was attacked the Sanduskys' basement and tried to cry out for help when Dottie was upstairs, only to be ignored.

Dottie, who is not charged with any crimes, says all the accusers are lying.

Also Tuesday, Sandusky's attorney closely questioned two Pennsylvania state police investigators about whether they coached Jerry Sandusky accusers.

One of the troopers, Cpl. Joseph Leiter, now retired, acknowledged to lawyer Joe Amendola that he told at least one alleged victim of the former Penn State coach that they "wouldn't be alone" if they came forward because "there were others."

Sandusky is accused of molesting 10 children over a 15-year period.

A crazy, self-proclaimed Jungle Bird Man crashed the U.S. Open trophy presentation last night after unheralded Webb Simpson won golf's prestigious title.

Somehow, this odd UK Bird crept past security and stole the show, cutting off NBC's Bob Costas on live TV and doing his bird call before being hauled away.

The Bird admits he had a few beers beforehand ... big surprise.

Jungle Bird Man - see his official Facebook page - says it was a premeditated mission to raise awareness about global deforestation. Makes sense.

"I want people thinking about saving trees," he said.

Hilariously, after security handed the interview crasher over to the San Francisco police, he and the officers were making bird noises at the station together.

They eventually cut him loose because U.S. Open officials did not want to press charges. Classy move on their part. Next on the hit list for the avian wonder?

"The House of Commons," he says, "is the next port of call."

Better beef up security over there fellas.

Roger Clemens may never make it into the Hall of Fame, but the legendary pitcher doesn't need to worry any longer about making it through a prison sentence, either.

He has been acquitted on all counts of lying to a grand jury.

Roger Clemens in Court

Clemens was on trial for six counts of perjury, stemming from a 2008 statement in front of Congress that he never took steroids or Human Growth Hormone.

British police are investigating David Nalbandian for injuring a linesman while kicking an advertising board during Sunday's tennis final at Queen's Club.

Officials ruled that the Argentine had to default the match to Marin Cilic after smashing the sign - and the lineman's legs behind it - with his right foot.

Judge Andrew McDougal could be seen cringing in pain as the player sent part of the sign flying into his leg. Watch the video of his Nalbandian's outburst here:

McDougal was bloodied in the encounter but suffered no other injury. Nalbandian was leading 7-6, 3-4 at the time but was forced to default the match.

By doing so, he forfeited significant prize money and rankings points in the process ... all while injuring a linesman for no reason. Definitely worth it.

What's more, criminal charges may be in the offing.

"We are aware of an incident at the Aegon Championships on June 17," a Scotland Yard spokesman said. "A complaint has been made and the Metropolitan police service is investigating the incident. The allegation is of assault."

NFL star Pacman Jones, the poster child for pro athletes behaving badly, must pay $11.6 MILLION in damages to the victims of a Las Vegas strip club shooting.

Pacman (real name Adam) had been sued by Aaron Cudworth and Thomas Urbanski, two security guards who were shot outside Minxx strip club in February 2007.

The now-famous incident began when Jones "made it rain" with THOUSANDS of $1 bills ... then got pissed when a stripper began taking it without his permission.

A fight ensued outside the club and three people were shot, including Cudworth and Urbanski. Pacman was sued, even though he was not the actual shooter.

A Nevada jury found Pacman Jones responsible and awarded Cudworth $1.3 million in damages. Urbanski, who was paralyzed from the waist down, got $9.6 million.

Urbanski's wife sued for loss of marital relations and won $750,000.

At the time Pacman pleaded no contest to conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct, receiving just a year's probation and 200 hours of community service.

He was suspended for the entire 2007 NFL season and part of 2008 as a result, and is currently a member of the Cincinnati Bengals ... at least for now.

Tony Parker of the NBA's San Antonio Spurs was apparently collateral damage in the wild fight between Chris Brown, Drake and their entourages Wednesday.

Eva Longoria's ex suffered a serious eye injury!

Parker was inside club W.i.P in NYC Wednesday when bottles and fists began to fly in a Chris Brown-Drake fight that began as a war of words, but got physical, and ugly.

So ugly, Parker's career was close to being jeopardized.

Tony Parker Watch

Parker addressed the media and said he got shards of glass in his eye during the melee. He will recover, but it was VERY close to being VERY bad.

"I was there with a bunch of friends when a fight broke out," the All-Star point guard recalled. "They started to throw bottles about. I got it all."

"My cornea has been touched. I can't do anything for seven days. But I was lucky. The injury won't prevent me from competing the Olympics."

We're glad to hear that and wish the Frenchman a speedy recovery. As for the main instigator? It looks like a gang-sign flashing posse member.
