No Flipping Way
Caught underneath the basket and harassed by the Celtics' Kevin Garnett, LeBron
James used his off hand to flip in this shot during Game 2 of the Eastern
Conference semifinals last Thursday in Boston. James had 21 points in the
Cavaliers' 89--73 loss; at week's end they trailed two games to one.
Troy Dumais pulled himself together for this somersault off the three-meter
springboard at the USA Diving Grand Prix in Fort Lauderdale last Saturday.
Dumais finished second (page 78).
