The NFL lost a legend in Hall of Famer Deacon Jones, the Bruins took a 2-0 lead on the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals, and Cliff Lee acknowledged that he very well could be traded -- again.
As for the rest of Monday's sports news, here's some of what you may have missed:
-- A future USC long snapper has a pretty sweet trick shot video:
-- The Maloofs, after being forced to sell the Kings to a local buyer instead of one who would move the team, thanked the fans of Sacramento with a newspaper ad. I'm sure they appreciate the gesture.

BEST OF MAXIM
MIAMI What happened: As they often have done over the past two seasons, the Miami Heat made it very interesting.
As they always have done in such situations, they won.
The Heat trailed in their last three series last year en route to the NBA title and they were forced to a Game 7 in these Eastern Conference finals.
But the Heat broke open the game in the second quarter Monday...
Dwyane Wade has scored under 20 points in 12 straight games – the longest streak of his career. Chris Bosh has failed to reach double digit scoring in three straight games for the first time since his rookie year. Point blank, they’re struggling, but Wade says the cure is they need a bigger role in the Heat offense going into Game 7.
According to ESPN:
“We’ve got to do a...
Bosh and Wade haven’t been playing well and LeBron hasn’t been shy in saying that they have struggled and he needs them. They had just enough to get by the Pacers, but the Spurs are going to be a bigger challenge.
Wade is a curious guy, part of the reason he has been successful is because he is so brazenly arrogant, whereas Bosh is a lot more sensitive. I wonder what these conversations...
The NBA Finals are upon us and the Miami Heat’s bandwagon haters and lovers are making their feelings felt everywhere you go.

ONE WAY OF PUTTING IT
LeBron James confessed that Heat teammates Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade aren't playing well, saying, "We can state the obvious: They’re both struggling."
The defending champions came to play in Game 7. The Miami Heat destroyed the Indiana Pacers 99-76 Monday night in Miami to advance to the NBA Finals for the third straight year. The Heat will attempt to win
I joined Justin Hull on "The Home Stretch" this afternoon to vent about the mess the Miami Heat find themselves. We talked about why Indiana looks poised for an upset, Dwyane Wade not aging well, Chris Bosh being a ghost and why Miami might be smart to deal Wade or Bosh this summer because LeBron James may bolt in 2014.
Brian Windhorst has an excellent article about the dilemma facing Lebron James in tonight’s game 7 showdown in Miami versus the Pacers. Should he try to take over the game and save the Heat like he did in Game 5, or should he try to stay with the program and find ways to get Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh involved.
Against the front line of the Pacers, the formula that worked in the...
And then there were two.
For the third straight year, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat made their way to the NBA Finals. And for the first time since 2007, it's the San Antonio Spurs representing the Western Conference in the championship round, with the same three-man core that won a title six years ago and had heard plenty of whispers since that they were too old...
