Keith Strudler: King James Goes Home

Life doesn’t always go according to plan. If it did, I’d be writing this from my ski chalet in Switzerland while my 7 year old cures Cancer. Things haven’t gone exactly according to plan for the sports fans of Cleveland, either. That’s pretty much true for all of sporting history, but particularly true at this very moment, where their beloved Cavaliers are now 1-2 to start this NBA season. That wouldn’t be entirely unusual, if it weren’t for the fact that this season marked the return of the Chosen One LeBron James, who returned from Miami to finally bring a title to beleaguered city. And he brought all-star forward Kevin Love with him, who, along with point guard Kyrie Erving, would form the new holy trinity of power in the Eastern Conference, something the Heat managed for the past several seasons.

Sports Report: Germany Beats Argentina For Fourth World Cup Title

World Cup:

Mario Goetze produced the piece of individual skill that Lionel Messi couldn't muster.

With two quick, deft touches, Goetze ended Germany's 24-year wait for another World Cup title — and denied Messi the one title he needs to forever take his place among soccer's all-time greats.

Goetze scored the winning goal in extra time to give Germany a 1-0 victory over Argentina in a tight and tense World Cup final. Goetz beat Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero in the 113th minute.

LeBron James Sets New High With Miami Heat

In the NBA, the Nets had a 96-80 rout of the Chicago Bulls in Brooklyn. Deron Williams scored 20 points and Joe Johnson had 19. The Bulls committed 28 turnovers and lost for just the second time in 11 games.

A person with knowledge of the situation says the Brooklyn Nets will sign Jason Collins to a second 10-day contract. After that, the Nets would have to sign him for the rest of the season if they wanted to keep him. Collins signed his original deal on Feb. 23, becoming the NBA's first openly gay player, and it expires today.

Keith Strudler: Sports Mount Rushmore

So for the record, there are no actual Mount Rushmores for sports. There’s no baseball Rushmore, with Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron chiseled into some rock ledge. And there’s no mountain with Johnny Unitas next to Jim Brown. So any discussion of the Mount Rushmore of any sport is purely hypothetical, as are many sports debates.
