Rattling off the list of autographs he received during a recent trip to Washington, D.C., 10-year-old Loderique Gordon named a who's who: LeBron, Denzel Washington, Ashanti, Ron Howard and Roxanne. As impressed and excited as he was to meet National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James and Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington, it was a talk about helping others by Roxanne Spillett, president of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, that led Loderique and Naquan Chung to discuss the possibilities on the ride home.

Let me get this straight. Jamaal Magloire is a better player than LeBron James. Am I reading that right? Because if Magloire made the NBA Eastern Conference All-Star Team, that tells me he's better than LeBron James. Fine. According to the NBA's logic, Britney Spears is a better singer than Aretha Franklin, Jack Black is a better actor than Robert DeNiro and Tom Brady is a better quarterback than Joe Montana. Yeah, right. Magloire should not be an All-Star and James - even at 19 - should.

Thumbs up to all of the Washington County teams that won Maryland District 1 Little League Baseball tournaments over the past several weeks. The winners were Clear Spring (9-10 Division), Halfway (10-11 and 11-12 divisions), Conococheague (Junior Division) and Maugansville (Senior Division). Thumbs up to U.S. Army Col. John Thomas Smith, a Hagerstown native who will attend the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pa. The assignment is the latest in Smith's more than 25 years with the Army, which included a stint as an artillery officer in operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm and two tours of duty in the more recent conflict in Iraq.

This week, a few short takes. When are the people surrounding LeBron James going to let him accept some responsiblity for his actions? Everyone except the 18-year-old superstar has had an accusatory finger pointed at them, from his coach to his school to the store owner who gave him two "retro jerseys" to the media that put him on a pedestal. Certainly all of the above share some of the blame, if not for his accepting the gifts then for exploiting the kid. But as savvy as all have been in promoting James, can anyone believe that he didn't know the rule that said he could not accept such gifts?

They got us again. We sit there and say we won't ever be duped again, but it didn't work. It never does. We sports fans proved again how gullible and vulnerable we actually are. On Thursday, LeBron James turned his choice of NBA employment into a telethon event. Hidden in the guise of a fundraiser for The Boys and Girls Clubs was the King's decision to make Miami his next castle and unearth his hometown roots with Cleveland and Northeast Ohio. The announcement shocked and upset so many people on so many levels, but none more than we who actually took time to watch it. In the words of Britney Spears, one of the great philosophers of our times -- OOPS, we did it again.

Even though I'm not a hardcore fan of the National Basketball Association - except for following Lebron James - I have to be amazed at the recent 81-point performance by Kobe Bryant. Watching the highlights with shot after shot going through the twine, I wondered whether his 46 attempted shots were out of selfishness or necessity. Probably a little of both, with Kobe being the one-man team that he is and his Lakers team having a sub-par record. That was nearly 1.7 points per minute off of nearly one shot per minute in an NBA game.

Rarely has a collective gasp been more audible than the one which swept the sports world shortly after Nike signed LeBron James to a $90 million shoe deal. It went something like this: I must have misheard you. Did you say $90 million? For a high school kid?!? At least, that's the reaction I had. You know what I would do with $90 million? I'd take my wife-to-be on a 50-year honeymoon. Surely, no high school kid is worth that much money, right? Think again. The truth is Nike hit the jackpot here.

BEIJING (AP) -- LeBron James and his teammates easily shoved Angola aside. Now come the teams that can push back. Dwyane Wade scored 19 points, James dominated the game with his size and strength on both ends, and the U.S. Olympic team wrapped up the easy portion of its schedule with a 97-76 victory Tuesday night. Dwight Howard added 14 points and James finished with 12 for the Americans, who had another rough night from 3-point range but don't appear to be stoppable in the open court.

Last night, I did something I've never done before and probably (if not definitely) will never do again. I taped an NBA game. You want to know why LeBron James received $90 million from Nike? Because even people who can't stand to watch regular-season NBA basketball will tune in just to see this kid play. I would have watched James' debut live, but my dad and I had a prior commitment to go watch the awful Washington Capitals play his favorite team of the moment, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.
