Dorfman: The Heat Is Turned Down…But It May Rise Again

I had no idea June 13th was a national holiday. I thought the calendar was bereft of celebrations between Memorial Day and July 4th. But it seems all of America is honoring this day, or at least all of America outside of South Beach.

Wisch: Forget MJ vs. LeBron, What About Pippen vs. Wade?
