Saw this today, thought it was interesting:

Comparison between the "leaders" of the current champs in the NHL and NBA.

In Jonathan Toews' Stanley Cup post-game speech, he said 'we' 14 times and 'I' 0 times.

In LeBron James' NBA title post-game speech, he said 'we' 0 times and 'I' 18 times.

It is interesting. I mean, it's not true, but it is interesting that people are spreading this around and what that says about them. Here's the clip of Lebron's post game press conference:

The very first question he gets asked is "Two things how does it feel to be a multiple champion and how does this compare to last year?"

This is his answer.

It feels great. This team is amazing and the vision that I had when I decided to come here is all coming true. Through adversity, through everything we've been through, we've been able to perservere and win back to back championships. It's an unbelievable feeling and I'm happy to be a part of such a world class organization.

Looks like it was a pretty busy day in the NBA too. Dwight Howard will go to the Rockets, Andre Iguodala to the Warriors.

Blockbuster trade between the Celtics and the Nets.  To Brooklyn go Paul Pierce & Kevin Garnett, along with Jason Terry and D.J. White, while Brooklyn shipped Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, Keith Bogans, Kris Joseph, MarShon Brooks along with three first round picks and some extra option.

Well, apparently with a simple majority vote today the rumoured name change of the Bobcats to the Hornets will be set for the 2014-2015 season.

I'm a little unsure of how to deal with this as it's a decision by Michael Jordan's ownership group that seems pretty smart.
