Starting Five

1. LeBron’s Lay-up Line Quality Game Winner

LeBron James beats Paul George one-on-one (the HalfBeatles had been heroic until then) and then immediately searches for a Staples “That Was Easy” red button.

2. Brian Urlacher Retires

Played middle linebacker for more games, and had more tackles, than fellow Chicago Bear legends Dick Butkus or Mike Singletary. And you gotta love a middle linebacker who has “ache” right in the midst of his surname.

3. Yuichura Miura, age 80, becomes the oldest person to summit Mount Everest. “Mandelbaum! Mandelbaum! Mandelbaum!”

4. Terrific story by Berry Tramel. Don’t you think this photo should be put on the front of a T-shirt, a T-shirt that Sergio Garcia would have to wear for all four rounds of the U.S. Open?

5. Clay Bucholz of the Red Sox pitches five-hit ball over seven innings and moves to 7-0. Matt Harvey of the New York Mets is not very sharp versus Cincinnati, but gets his fifth No Decision to remain unbeaten at 5-0.
