When LeBron James joined the Miami Heat last year - essentially admitting that he couldn't handle the burden of leading the Cleveland Cavs to a NBA title - he became the most polarizing figure in professional sports.

Therefore, when the favored Heat lost Game Six of the Finals last night to the Dallas Mavericks, critics around the country celebrated.

That's Karma for screwing over Cleveland, they cried, pointing to James' subpar stats in the series (18 fourth quarter points... total) as proof that he can't handle the pressure.

Yes, the Heat did... hold an unseemly, premature pep rally that crowned themselves champion before a single game was played.

At the podium after the game, James was asked if he cared about such reaction. His reply likely didn't make him any new fans:

“All the people that were rooting me on to fail, at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life they had before,” LeBron said. “They have the same personal problems they had today. I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things that I want with me and my family and be happy with that.”

In other words: hate on, haters. But your life still sucks compared to mine and, get a life, this is just sports.

Were you happy to see the Heat lose?

LeBron James has struggled in the NBA Finals, scoring 11 points total over five fourth quarters and looking disinterested in action on the court during Game Four.

Might such poor play be blamed on the action off the court by girlfriend Savanna Brinson?

For the second time in two years, following his second baffling, passive playoff performance, an Internet rumor claims that a fellow basketball player has slept with someone close to the Heat superstar.

Last season, sources said teammate Delonte West got it on with LeBron's mom, Gloria.

Now, at least one website is reporting that Washington Wizards forward Rashard Lewis recently slept with Brinson, LeBron's long-term girlfriend, during a trip to Miami.

Tim Tebow has a lot of free time on his hands these days, as NFL players remain locked out.

But how much time the Denver Broncoes quarterback has spent in the gym is the topic of online controversy today, as a friend of the athlete Tweeted a photo of Tebow at the practice range before a charity tournament at the St. Jude Classic golf tournament in Memphis.

Holy muscular driving power, is the former Hesiman winner truly this ripped?

At least Mark Grace has good taste in scotch.

The former Chicago Cubs star was arrested for DUI in Scottsdale, Ariz., the weekend before last, after an officer observed his 2009 Jaguar weaving in and out of his lane around 1 a.m. He admitted to "having a few drinks."

Quite recently, too. Grace said he consumed two glasses of Macallan scotch earlier that evening, one about "five minutes before the stop."

Mark Grace Mug Shot

Grace, 46, is now an announcer for the Arizona Diamondbacks, with whom he won a World Series in 2001 after spending most of his career with the Cubs.

He shed tears of joy then, but on this night, his "bloodshot and watery eyes" and lack of drivers license on his person earned him a ticket to the slammer.

When the officer asked, "How do you think you did on the field tests" ... Grace replied, "Not well enough." He was handcuffed and taken into custody.

He was booked on DUI with a BAC of .08 or more, DUI impaired to the slightest degree, improper right turn, and not carrying his license or registration.

Normally, Kim Kardashian loves attention ... but not this kind of attention.

The professional celebrity is PISSED that In Touch Weekly is running a huge cover story claiming she has been cheating on her fiance, Kris Humphries.

They even name her supposed male mistress: NFL player Bret Lockett!

Kim Kardashian Caught Cheating?!

Kinky texts? Wild phone sex? Was Anthony Weiner involved?

Kim says she has never even met or spoken with Lockett ... but in the story Lockett is QUOTED PERSONALLY as saying that Kim pursued him, and that, "I knew this was a game to her ... this is what she does."

Yeah. Kim's rep says she's gonna be suing both In Touch and Bret.

A demand letter from Kim's lawyer has already been sent, threatening legal action and putting In Touch on notice, calling the cheating allegations "are, at a minimum, damaging, defamatory, and an invasion of her privacy."

The tabloid is running the story anyway. Lawyer up, In Touch.

THG POLL: What do you think? Did Kim have an affair?

Miami Heat star Chris Bosh wants his two-year-old daughter to watch him play in the NBA Finals, but his estranged ex, Allison Mathis, isn't game.

Now he's looking for a judge to force her hand.

Bosh and Mathis have a contentious relationship, battling over custody and her appearance on Basketball Wives, which he put the ki-Bosh on.

Right now, there's a temporary court-ordered arrangement in place in which they share custody, and the daughter, Trinity, is with Allison.

Last week, Bosh filed a motion asking the judge to temporarily alter the terms so that Trinity could come to the Heat-Mavericks games.

"I am embarking on a new chapter of my life by making it into the finals for the first time in my professional career," writes Bosh.

"It's very important to me to have the people closest and dear to my heart to be able to share these moments with me."

Former MLB star Lenny Dykstra was just formally charged with multiple felonies this afternoon. We're talking 23 felony offenses for those keeping score.

The L.A. County D.A. is accusing Dykstra of auto theft, identity theft, filing false financial statements, possession of cocaine and Ecstasy, and so on.

The D.A. says police found coke, Ecstasy, as well as Somatropin - a synthetic human growth hormone - in the former ballplayer's home April 14.

Law enforcement sources report that it was a small amount of coke and Ecstasy for "personal use," not distribution. Phew, he's totally off the hook!

Charlie Sheen bailed him out after he was arrested following the search of his home. The Warlock may get another change to help out his friend.

Dykstra's accountant and a friend were also charged. All are set to be arraigned today, with the D.A. asking for bail set at $500,000 for each party.

If found guilty of all charges ... Dykstra faces up to 12 years in state prison. Oh, and he's ALSO under indictment for federal bankruptcy fraud.

That's from an entirely different, federal case. Just FYI.

Plaxico Burress was released from prison this morning. The former New York Giants star served 22 months for myriad weapons violations.

The NFL standout left the Oneida Correctional Facility in Upstate New York, hugging his agent, Drew Rosenhaus on his way out the door.

Burress pleaded guilty in August 2009 to attempted criminal possession of a gun after accidentally shooting himself in an NYC nightclub.

HE'S OUT: After nearly two years in the slammer, Plax is a free man, but not before making our celebrity mug shots gallery one last time. Well, hopefully.

"It's a beautiful day," he said. "It's a beautiful day to be reunited with my family. I want to go home and spend some quality time with them."

Wearing shades, Burress thanked God as well as "all my fans all around the world for the thousands of letters, for their unwavering support."

Burress wants to play again if an NFL team will roll the dice. We'd tell him not to hold his breath, but does anyone remember Michael Vick?

Speaking of, Plax rocked a Phillies cap as he departed. Might he be hinting at a possible trip down I-95 to join forces with Vick in Philly?

We've all been there, right fellas?

Sometimes, when a foul ball is headed your direction, tantalizingly within reach, tunnel vision kicks in and you just don't think straight.

That's about the only explanation we can think of for this guy who, while holding his daughter, attempted to snare one the other night.

He ended up fumbling both the foul ball and little girl, resulting in a meeting with security. Double fail with a side of embarrassment!

Two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash is in the news for two reasons today.

First, the recently-divorced star was spotted with a woman believed to be girlfriend Brittany Richardson at Game 2 of the NBA Finals last night.

Nash was bombarded by texts after ABC showed him on TV, to which he responded on Twitter: “How can I watch the game when I just got a thousand texts for being on tv?! Been there before people. #kindofabigdeal”

Steve Nash and Brittany Richardson

Steve and Brittany watch the Mavericks' 95-93 win over the Heat.

Nash and his wife divorced in November - the day after their third child was born - and he and Brittany Richardson have reportedly been dating since.

Meanwhile, the Suns point guard Steve Nash made news by telling the New York Times that he does not think an NBA player admitting to being gay would be a “big issue” and that it would be “surprisingly accepted.”

Here's what Nash had to say about it ...
