SORRY, IT'S hard for me to shed any tears over the recent exile from high school basketball of LeBron James, a senior at St. Vincent-St. Mary's in Akron, Ohio, and the best scholastic basketball player in the nation. The Ohio High School Athletic Association not only had the right to strip him of his amateur status, but an obligation to do so for the thousands of other high school athletes in this country. When James accepted $845 worth of retro jerseys from a clothing store, he should have known that he was forfeiting the rest of his high school career.

LeBron James scored 24 points, and the Miami Heat had a rebounding edge for a change on Sunday to beat the woeful Washington Wizards, 99-71. The host Heat, beaten on the boards by a total of 38 rebounds over the previous three games, this time enjoyed a 50-39 advantage. Udonis Haslem led them with 12 rebounds, and Chris Bosh had nine. James extended his streaks of scoring at least 20 points to 32 consecutive games this season, and 53 in a row including last year's playoff run. Elsewhere: Kemba Walker had 20 points and Ben Gordon added 18 points as the Charlotte Bobcats beat the Detroit Pistons 108-101 in overtime in Auburn Hills, Mich., for just their second win in 21 games.

High school basketball star Le-Bron James selected Aaron Goodwin as his agent. The decision comes a week before 13 NBA teams hope to land James in the draft lottery. Goodwin, who represents Milwaukee Bucks guard Gary Payton, was expected to be the choice. Still, the announcement ended a nearly 2-year courtship by sports agents trying to sign an 18-year-old client who soon will be worth millions. James, who starred at St. Vincent-St. Mary in Akron, Ohio, will forgo college in order to enter the NBA. Goodwin first saw James play in an AAU game 2 years ago and has been part of his inner circle for some time.

TATTLE HAS always thought there was a problem with basketball players in movies - basketball players are vertical; movie screens are horizontal. Oh, yeah, and they can't act. Yet the legends of the NBA keep trying. Remember Shaquille O'Neal in "Kazaam" or Julius Erving in "The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh"? We thought not. Aside from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in "Airplane," can anyone recall a good movie performance by a pro hoopster? LeBron James hopes to change that. LeBron will make his feature- film debut by playing himself in the comedy "Fantasy Basketball Camp.

LEBRON JAMES has endorsed McDonald's, Nike and State Farm, but there's one product right now on the streets of Philadelphia carrying his name that he most certainly did not endorse - heroin. Upper Darby police said that they busted a major heroin dealer from Philadelphia on Thursday who had 140 packets of the deadly drug - all of which were stamped with the silhouette of a basketball player and the name "LeBron James. " "I don't think LeBron James would be too happy with this drug-dealer dude using his name on these street bags," said Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood.

OK, LET ME get this straight. The Phillies pull off a heart-stopper of a win in the 12th inning. Meanwhile, LeBron James gets the most disgusting ego massage I've seen in years, getting a one-hour special on ESPN to make a 10-second announcement. ("Oh, but it raised money for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. " Write a check, LeBron!) And you put the egomaniac on your back cover? The one who doesn't live here, doesn't play here, who likely has few to no fans here? Putting James on your back cover is a slap in the face to the Phillies and their fans.

LeBron James needs 18 points to become the 38th NBA player to score 20,000 in his career. If it happens Wednesday when the Miami Heat visit the Golden State Warriors, James (28 years, 17 days) will be more than a year younger than Kobe Bryant was when he got there at 29 years, 122 days. James would be the seventh-fastest to the 20,000 club, in his 726th regular-season game. Wilt Chamberlain needed 499 games, followed by Michael Jordan (620), Oscar Robertson (671), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (684)

Somehow, some way, the San Antonio Spurs seem to have discovered a secret that every team in the league desperately searched for all season long. They have figured out a way to slow down LeBron James. Whether it's Kawhi Leonard's incredible wingspan, Danny Green's dogged determination, or a stash of kryptonite that Tim Duncan happened upon while taking a walk along the banks of the San Antonio River, it's working. And yet the Spurs return home for Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night perhaps feeling lucky to have earned a split in Miami.

NEW YORK - Derek Fisher sat in his slightly darkened office at Madison Square Garden and, as usual, reviewed videotape. It was 3 hours before his Knicks welcomed the Clippers to MSG on Wednesday. The video showed the Clippers' usual array of monster dunks and fastbreak thunder, but it also revealed a maestro at work. Fisher, less than a season removed from playing in the NBA, couldn't help but be awed at the deftness with which Chris Paul orchestrated the movements of every player on the court.

LOS ANGELES - It has been 62 years since someone averaging fewer than 11 points per game won the NBA's rookie-of-the-year award: Fort Wayne Pistons forward/center Don Meineke averaged 10.7 points to win the inaugural award in 1953. This season, 76ers center Nerlens Noel is making a case to follow in his footsteps. The 6-foot-11, 223-pounder is averaging 9.5 points and leads all rookies in rebounds (7.9 per game), blocked shots (1.9), and steals (1.8). He is also the only player to rank in the top 10 in blocks (seventh)

NEW YORK - Sometimes at an NBA All-Star Game, you will see something you haven't before. Though the lack of defense is always a given, some things are not. That came in a few forms last night at Madison Square Garden. Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook scored a record 27 points in the first half, eclipsing the mark of 24 in one half set by Glenn Rice in 1997 and Kyrie Irving last season. Westbrook finished the game with 41 points, leading the West to a 163-158 win. The record for points in a game, 42, was set by Wilt Chamberlain in 1962.

WE DON'T KNOW if LeBron James has a craving for savings. But he definitely has a passion for fashion. The Cavaliers forward is producing the NBA All-Star All-Style runway competition that will air tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. on TNT. The show, which will be taped tonight at New York's Hammerstein Theater, features several All-Star models, including Klay Thompson, James Harden and DeMarcus Cousins, who on Sunday will play for the West squad. In addition, there will be plenty of female contestants, including models Erin Heatherton and Rachel Hilbert.

CLEVELAND - This is the homecoming JaKarr Sampson dreamed of while he was growing up in Akron. The 76ers' starting shooting guard will take the court Monday night at Quicken Loans Arena to square off against LeBron James and his once beloved Cleveland Cavaliers. "I might clown around with [James] on the court," said Sampson, an undrafted rookie free agent. "I'm sure I'll be guarding him a few possessions. " Don't be surprised if the always jovial Sampson breaks out in laughter during pregame introductions.

LeBRON JAMES had to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. When he became a free agent at the end of the 2013-14 season, he could have re-upped with the Miami Heat, made as much money as possible under the NBA's collective bargaining agreement and likely won several more titles with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as his wingmen. James, who is out for 2 weeks with knee and back strains and will miss tonight's game against the Sixers at the Wells Fargo Center, could have gone to New York as the conquering hero who would finally bring championship glory to the Knicks after 4 decades, or he could have helped Kobe Bryant win one more title in Los Angeles while taking the Lakers into another era of greatness.

THE PHILLIES might want to recall their 2015 calendars. You would think they would only include players they expected to be on the roster next season. But lo and behold, there - big as life - is Jimmy Rollins on the June page. Makes one wonder whether any of the other players featured in the calendar are safe. They include Ryan Howard (January), Cole Hamels (March), Chase Utley (April) and Cliff Lee (May). And, should Marlon Byrd be concerned that he's nowhere to be found?

WHEN WE first heard Stephon Marbury was starring in a musical in China titled "I Am Marbury," we briefly morphed into Tom McGinnis and let go with a lusty, "Are you kidding me?" The 37-year-old Marbury, it seems, is a megastar in China. Bigger than Jerry Lewis in France or David Hasselhoff in Germany. Heck, there's even a statue of the two-time NBA All-Star outside the MasterCard Center in Beijing where he led the Ducks to the Chinese Basketball Association title in March. The musical, which opened last night in Beijing and runs 11 days, is sold out for the first three shows.

Dion Waiters was en route to Los Angeles last month for a weeklong workout session with pro basketball trainer Rob McClanaghan, an annual West Coast trip that had become as much a part of Waiters' offseason routine as the trade rumors that always seem to include his name, when his cellphone buzzed. He answered it. "Be ready," LeBron James told him. James had not yet announced that he had decided to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. So he was coy in his brief conversation with Waiters, who grew up in South Philadelphia and has been the Cavs' starting shooting guard since they drafted him fourth overall out of Syracuse in 2012.

THE RUMOR that Delonte West slept with LeBron James' mom first surfaced in 2010 when the two were teammates on the Cavaliers. West, who starred at Saint Joseph's University and went on to an 8-year NBA career, recently discussed the alleged relationship and how it affected him on a video on Vice Sports. "I named my son Cash after Cassius Clay and Johnny Cash," West said. "His middle name is Delonte, but I didn't want to name him Delonte West Jr. just because of [the rumor]. I don't want my son going to school and people making fun of him for something his daddy did. He goes to school and [they say]
