Skip Bayless @RealSkipBayless

Good news: LeBron's going back to his headband tonite! Doesn't need to "look like teammates." Needs to play like King James. This will help.

Sarah Spain @SarahSpain

First time in months he's back to the headband. Either he's having a bad hair(line) day or the Bulls are in his head a bit.

LeBron's been here before vs. Bulls
NBA 

The Bulls took Game 1 on the road against the Cavaliers, but that's no reason to count out King James & Co. LeBron has fallen behind 1-0 in two previous playoff matchups with the Bulls, and his teams never lost another game in either series.

Cards claim ex-Pat CB off waivers

The Cardinals have claimed CB Alfonzo Dennard off of waivers, a league source tells ESPN's Field Yates. Dennard was waived by the Patriots on Tuesday.

Brian Dawkins: CB Dennard a fit for Cards
NFL 

"Because that system is such an aggressive man-to-man scheme that needs corners to be able to bump and run, I think it's a great place for [Alfonzo Dennard] to go and let's see if he can handle that."
