♦ So much for speculation about Tim Tebow‘s triumphant return to Florida.

In the silly story of the day, Bruins star Tyler Seguin, who played for the Swiss team EHC Biel during the NHL lockout, responded Wednesday to a report in a Swiss tabloid newspaper claiming that the 20-year-old left a major mess behind in his rented apartment.

Two days after Rob Parker went on a Detroit television show and attempted to convince people his comments about Robert Griffin III were taken out of context and that he was not questioning RGIII's "blackness," ESPN announced that it was parting ways with the "First Take" panelist.

"Rob Parker's contract expired at year's end," a statement from the network read. "Evaluating our needs and his work, including his recent RGIII comments, we decided not to renew his deal."

On the same day it was revealed that Dwight Howard has a torn labrum and will join Pau Gasol (concussion) on the sideline for at least a week, Lakers star Kobe Bryant tried to downplay rumors of discontent on the team.

Responding to a report that he and Howard did not get along and almost got into a fistfight, Bryant on Monday tweeted a picture of the two pretending to square off in the trainer's room with coach Mike D'Antoni smiling between them.
