Mashup: Cavaliers owner tweaks LeBron

The city of Cleveland is smirking Monday, following LeBron James' latest failed effort to win an NBA title. About 15 minutes after the Mavericks knocked off the Heat in Game 6 Sunday night, Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert sent a congratulatory tweet to Mavs owner Mark Cuban and it included this line obviously intended as a shot at LeBron: There are NO SHORTCUTS. NONE.

In his postgame press conference, LeBron responded to his critics. "At the end of the day, all the people that were rooting on me to fail, at the end of the day, they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that they had before they woke up today," he said.

Meanwhile, Wizards forward Rashard Lewis took to the airwaves to deny a rumor that he had an affair with James' fiancee, Savannah Brinson. Lewis said he had no idea how the rumor started and insisted he has never met Brinson. "Those rumors are 100 percent false," Lewis told a Houston radio station...

Red Sox deal minor leaguer to Pirates

The Red Sox traded catcher Mike McKenry to Pittsburgh on Sunday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. McKenry, 26, had been acquired by Boston from Colorado on March 29.

Mavericks finish off Heat for NBA title

The Mavericks won the first title in franchise history Sunday night, taking Game 6 of the NBA finals by a 105-95 decision over the Heat and capturing the best-of-seven series, 4-2.

Despite an uncharacteristically poor shooting night from Dirk Nowitzki, the visiting Mavericks were in control most of the evening. Led by Jason Terry's 27 points off the bench, Dallas led for most of the game, and behind some clutch shots down the stretch from Nowitzki — who ended up with 21 points on 9-for-27 shooting — the Mavericks closed things out in the fourth quarter. Nowitzki was named MVP of the finals.

LeBron James led Miami with 21 points.

Wilfork (35) and Mankins (39) in Top 100

Two Patriots players highlighted this week's edition of the NFL Network's "Top 100" series, a players-only poll on who's the best in the game. Offensive lineman Logan Mankins was slotted at No. 39, while defensive lineman Vince Wilfork was at No. 35.

Mankins was presented by coach Bill Belichick, who said New England's first-round pick in 2005 was the Patriots “most durable and consistent performer on the offensive line for several years.”

“There are tough players and then there are the super-tough guys. I’d say Mankins would go into that [second] category,” Belichick said. "Both physically and mentally, he’s as tough as they come. ... You could honestly pick out any one of 30 plays of him in any game and find him really dominating guys.”

Wilfork was presented by former college teammate and current New Orleans linebacker Jonathan Vilma.

“He was...
