■ LeBron, you remember Cleveland. And Cleveland, you remember LeBron. And while Cavs' fans will be snarling, that's TNT grinning.
■ Maybe LeBron will pull a Pitino tonight, and enter the floor from the opposite side.
■ Folks, North Carolina is not very good. Have seen three Heels games on TV, all three losses. Roy Williams' team has more turnovers than your neighborhood bakery.

■ UK hit 10 of 16 three-pointers in bashing Boston U. on Tuesday night. That's 62.5 percent. You have to go back to the Billy G. era (error?) for a better three-point performance by a UK team taking at least 15 threes. The Cats made 12 of 19 from three for 63.2 percent in a win at Tennessee on Jan. 13, 2009. That was the night Jodie Meeks scored a school-record 54 points.
■ I can believe that Cameron Newton did not know his father was shopping his services. I'm not sure I can believe that makes him eligible.
■ How come there is not a WikiLeaks for sports?
■ I like South Carolina's chances Saturday. Auburn's defense is vulnerable. Steve Spurrier still knows how to game-plan. Better yet, Carolina defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson now has experience scheming against this Auburn offense.
■ Did you see where Alabama fired the part-time employee responsible for playing Take the Money and Run when Auburn quarterback Cameron Newton came on the field for the Iron Bowl?
So, were you about-to-be-fired employee, what songs would you play when Bruce Pearl steps on the floor in Rupp?
My top three: (1) White Liar, by Miranda Lambert; (2) Liar, by the Sex Pistols; (3) Lyin' Eyes, The Eagles.
■ BTW, Tennessee is the only unbeaten SEC team left in men's basketball.
■ Speaking of songs, aside from the student section, is there anyone seated in the lower part of Rupp Arena who can name a single song they play during pre-game warm-ups?
■ The Sagarin computer football rankings have Kentucky at No. 65, Louisville at No. 66.
■ Yes, I know that the Mike Hartline-Derrick Locke exchange fumble killed UK's momentum at Tennessee, but the Cats did come back to tie the game 14-14. After that, UK had the football four more times, and did nothing. Guess that was Steve Brown's fault.
■ DeMarcus Cousins to the Sacramento Bee: "It's very hard. I mean, you come into practice, you can just feel it in the air. The negativity. It's like a black cloud hanging over ... I'm mad, I'm frustrated about losing. I am a big part of this team, and Coach (Paul) Westphal has been saying it. I've been terrible. It's the truth."
■ When Kemba Walker got on the UConn bus after the Huskies beat UK in the Maui finals, his teammates gave him a standing ovation. UConn Coach Jim Calhoun told Sports Illustrated's Seth Davis he had never seen that happen before.
■ If the Dallas Cowboys can be in the NFC East, what's wrong with TCU being in the Big East?
■ Florida Coach Urban Meyer blew off his post-game radio show after the Gators lost to Florida State. This is (not) known as accountability.
■ If Kentucky ends up in the BBVA Compass Bowl, Jan. 8 in Birmingham, the Cats can say they have been to another January bowl game.
■ Michigan says it will take time to evaluate football coach Rich Rodriguez. Time it needs to find a new coach?
■ I am equally uncomfortable with athletes thanking God for wins, as I am with them seeming to blame God for dropping passes. Poor Stevie Johnson.
■ Not to go beyond playing them one game at a time, but Kentucky does play Notre Dame in the SEC/Big East Invitational next week. Notre Dame beat California in the Old Spice Classic last week despite making just one of 20 three-pointers.
■ Please stop it with all this stuff about how now-fired Miami coach Randy Shannon graduated his players. Aren't you supposed to graduate your players?
■ Tweet from John L. Pitts, sports editor of the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal: "I have learned exclusively that Dean Wormer has put Auburn football team on double-secret probation. In response, Chizik plans toga party."
