Team USA narrowly escaped an exhibition game against Team Argentina and San Antonio Spurs' Manu Ginobili winning 86-80 but the game wasn't without its testy moments.
During the game Chris Paul handed out a bit extra on a foul, Luis Scola and Kevin Durant got in each other's face and LeBron James got mixed up in the confrontation. And though I am sure he didn't mean any harm, Ginobili handed out a hard foul on James when James was driving to the basket. Check it out.
Seeing how once James gets going to the rim, it is very hard to stop him so perhaps this was the best Manu could do to prevent the easy basket. But did anyone catch how when Manu is a good sport and offers to help up James but LeBron doesn't take the offer?
Lebron James is arguably one of the most gifted athletes of all time. Most marvel at his speed, jumping ability and just the way to break down everything in slow motion. To succeed at all levels that he has is simply breath taking. Did he really have a choice? What if you were told that you had no choice but to be that good. What if you were anointed the next Dr. J and you...

Just think how many hours it took some guy (because this is something that guys waste time working on) to create this LeBron James Gmail account screencap. HOURS! Sure, once you have the Gmail fonts it comes down to creativity. And this creative guy even created a great Google email ad for LeBron’s account. Our favorite email on this screencap: that message from Pau Gasol.
