It didn't take long — after the Miami Heat finished off a 95-88 win over the San Antonio Spurs in an epic Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals to earn their second consecutive NBA championship Thursday night — for the league's online store to put up a treasure-trove of title-themed items up for sale while Heat fans were still in their frenzied state. There's lots of the usual collectibles — pennants, rally towels, magnets, decals — but the real prizes are the collectible bobbleheads depicting members of the Heat cradling the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy in their arms. In its haste to market the win, the league's $29.95 bobblehead version of reserve center Chris Andersen seems to be missing something important. At first glance the Birdman's mohawk is fairly accurate and the bobbleface sort of looks like the player, but the mini-version of Anderson is devoid his most visible feature — the tattoos!  All 324 of them! We know these collectible figures, made in the likeness of the players, are more cartoon than lifelike, but how can you forget Andersen's famous ink work? My guess.  The Birdman bobblehead comes with a coloring kit where you get to play tattoo artist and draw your own designs on the bare-skinned plastic body. Where's that tiny brush? [Yahoo! Sports]

Bulls GM: No teams asked to talk with Tom Thibodeau

Tom Thibodeau may be difficult to work with, but the Chicago Bulls are doing a better job of turning him into a sympathetic figure than they are of validating themselves for firing a head coach that reached the postseason every year he was in charge.

The team is undergoing a sort of transformation offensively this offseason with the play-calling duties falling now to Tom Clements. Head coach Mike McCarthy has been the man behind the mic, so to speak, since taking over in 2006. But an abundance of blunders caused him...

Chip Kelly: Tim Tebow is a quarterback

If Tim Tebow somehow makes the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster out of training camp, it will be as a quarterback and no other position. At least, that’s what Chip Kelly wants us to believe. “He’s a quarterback,” Kelly told reporters Thursday, per NFL.com’s Marc Sessler. “That’s how we’re looking at Timmy. We’re not looking at him...Read More

Eagles players don't share McCoy's views on Chip Kelly

Without saying a word, LeSean McCoy made big news on Thursday when Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly revealed the running back hadn’t returned his calls. Kelly tried getting in touch with McCoy to discuss his former player’s comments regarding racism, but he was rebutted with silence. When asked if he’d discussed the matter of race with the players in his locker room...
