The Rock appeared in-studio on ESPN SportsCenter Thursday promoting his “Journey 2″ movie and WrestleMania 28 on April 1. Rock mentioned his opponent, John Cena, by name and described him as WWE’s biggest star before resuming the theme of their Twitter battle by questioning Cena’s manhood. “Dream come true,” Rock said about wrestling in Miami at WM28. “I quietly retired and walked away.

He then dropped an uncensored “bulls—” before repeating his “boots to Cena’s ass” line after SportsCenter host John Buccigross flashed a Cena action figure. Bucci concluded the interview by joking they might be

One stingy defensive stretch was enough to carry the Miami Heat past LeBron James' former team once again. Might have gotten the Heat prepped for a daunting road stretch as well. Dwyane Wade scored 26 points, James added 24 and the Heat said farewell to their home floor for nearly two weeks by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 107-91 on Tuesday night.

I'm absolutely shocked that I could find a picture of Perkins smiling. You know, I’ve always had trouble pinpointing exactly why I don’t like LeBron James because I actually do like showmanship and hype from great players – I used to love watching TO’s touchdown celebrations – so that’s not the reason I hate "King James". Luckily for me, Kendrick...

…Kendrick Perkins vs. LeBron James.
Perk’s got a point. It would really have surprised me to see Jordan tweeting. Especially in 1994, 2 years before I owned a computer. I bet he’d be tweeting a lot about NAFTA and Alice in Chains...
