Found January 19, 2012 on NESW Sports:
The Miami Heat wore their NWO uniforms for their showdown vs the Lakers. The Marlins owner, Jeffrey Loria, did not take heed to this omen. He was sitting first row mid court. LeBron was chasing a loose ball and knocks him down, but he did pick him right back up. I did not recognize him [...]

The Miami Marlins and Reality TV, A Match Made in Heaven

Some consider reality TV to be the lowest form of entertainment on earth (after the "comedy" Whitney, that is).  Some of us absolutely eat that stuff up.  Whatever camp you fall into, I think we can all agree that watching a reality TV series featuring the Miami Marlins is an absolute must-see.  Lucky for all of us, such a series appears to be on its way.  From Variety...

Marlins, P Juan Carlos Oviedo reach one-year deal

Reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo, formerly Leo Nunez, avoided arbitration with the Miami Marlins by agreeing to a $6 million, one-year contract.

Video: Miami Marlins target Yoenis Cespedes hits first winter league homer

Does this mean Yoenis Cespedes’ price is back up? Off to a slow start in the Dominican winter league, Cespedes on Wednesday showed what all the fuss is about.

Cespedes still is just...

Video: LeBron James has jarring encounter with Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria

Courtside seats can be hazardous. Just ask Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, who took a charge from LeBron James during Thursday’s Heat-Lakers game.

LeBron James Falls Into Miami Marlins Owner Jeffrey Loria's Lap During Heat Game (Video)

LeBron James, meet Miami Marlins Owner, Jeffrey Loria. The Heat star was hustling for a ball when he landed in the lap of the baseball team's owner. James was able to save Loria before he fell to the floor and later said that he's hoping to get a hat with the colors of the newly placed Miami Marlins.

Video: LeBron James meets/nearly obliterates Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria

Baseball owners, like their NBA contemporaries, are a pretty anonymous lot. So you can't blame Miami Heat All-Star LeBron James for not knowing what Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria looks like at first glance.
