That NBA Lottery Pick:
USA Olympic swimmer Lauren Perdue isn't exactly a household name at this point but she's become one on the Internet since turning down a LeBron James dinner invite.
We'll let the folks over at Global Gazette
give you the details:
Just before the Games began, she tweeted, "Lebron James just invited me to dinner...Um wuuuutttt?!?"
"He was kind of joking," Perdue said. "But he was basically like, 'Would you like to come eat with me at the dining hall?' And I said, 'Um, I'm sorry, I have a curfew.'"
Sadly, even getting that elusive championship can't score LeBron James a dinner date.

There is no doubting that Lebron James has been scrutinized over the last two years.

But it's easy to say that among Robinson's favorite memories and one of the things he is proudest of is representing the United States in the Olympics...
David Stern has had much to say about flopping recently. He's been threatening to do something about it for the past couple of years. In the meantime, LeBron James has made flopping into an art form.
The refs too often fall for the acting jobs and reward the flopper with free throws. If they fell for the academy award winning performances in the video above, how will they...
