In an interview with GQ magazine, LeBron James said the highly critical letter written by Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert the night James announced his decision to sign with the Heat will give him "a lot of motivation" when Miami plays Cleveland. Of Gilbert, James said: "I don't think he ever cared about LeBron. My mother always told me you will see the light of people when they hit adversity. You'll get a good sense of their character. Me and my family have seen the character of that man. " James also told the magazine that growing up in Akron, about 40 miles outside of Cleveland, he and his friends didn't like people from the bigger city.

At a ribbon-cutting in November to celebrate the completion of an 11-year, $9 million streetscape improvement project intended to bolster retail businesses in Parkville, Baltimore County Executive James T. Smith Jr. invited shoppers to take advantage of free holiday parking at the newly landscaped lot on Lavender Avenue. Five months later, the Baltimore County Revenue Authority is trying to sell the 56-space lot — and with it, the only metered parking in the area. "The lot made less than $900 last year and less than $14,000 for the five years before that," said Lynnie Cook, the authority's executive director.

Their defense has allowed the fewest points in the league. Away from the field, they have received an outpouring of support for defensive tackle Devon Still and his 4-year-old daughter, Leah.

Last weekend, Towson students jammed into a parking lot outside Johnny Unitas Stadium, drinking and partying in a pre-game tailgate bash that university officials said left a police officer injured and a girl needing stitches after she attempted a backflip off a pickup truck. None of that was evident Saturday before the Tigers' football game against the Maine Black Bears, after university administrators cracked down on hard-core partying and set new rules for student tailgating.

Students who wish to tailgate for Towson University football games must attend a "risk reduction workshop" before getting a parking pass, one in a series of stricter new rules put in place after officials opted against a full ban this week. At last Saturday's tailgate in the designated student lot, Lot 14, students were dancing on the roofs of cars and were "hostile" and "uncooperative," according to Towson officials. Deb Moriarty, Towson's vice president for student affairs, was so concerned by the behavior and the potential risk to student safety she asked a group of other top officials to consider a ban on student tailgates Wednesday.

NEW YORK -- Right-hander Chris Tillman said he was honored to be named the Orioles' starter in Game 1 of the American League Division Series. “It means a lot,” Tillman said. “I'm excited about it, looking forward to it. I still got one more start to go [in the regular season], so I'm pretty focused on that, but at the same time I know it means a lot to the team, means a lot to me and hopefully get us going in the right direction.” The Orioles have won each of Tillman's last 11 starts, and Tillman is 6-0 in August and September, all from a pitcher who didn't pitch in the postseason in 2012.

In his appearance this morning on ESPN 's NFL Countdown, former linebacker Ray Lewis defended Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and general manager Ozzie Newsome, but he added that the organization probably would like a do-over in its handling of the Ray Rice fallout. "I've known Ozzie Newsome now over 19 years over my career. That's half of my life. I've known Steve Bisciotti over 15 years of my life. And each one of those men, bottom line, has never lied to me once," an emotional Lewis said.

I have to admit I was not overjoyed at the thought of spending the Ravens' season opener with the fourth-string CBS broadcasting team of Spero Dedes and Solomon Wilcots. But I only wish now that the Ravens had done as well Sunday as Wilcots, Dedes and CBS Sports did. While the Ravens lost 23-16 to the Cincinnati Bengals thanks to too many mistakes to even keep track of, CBS Sports had a solid opener from its revamped pre-game show with Bart Scott and Tony Gonzalez to the game coverage from M&T Bank Stadium.

Terrence Brooks wasn't having any fun. Seven months after helping Florida State win a national championship, he was just another NFL rookie, lining up as the Ravens' third-string safety during training camp. He was struggling to master the defensive playbook and fulfill all the responsibilities the coaching staff asked of him. He was distracted by things off the field and bothered by factors he couldn't control. Fellow defensive back Chykie Brown saw a teammate who wasn't taking football seriously enough.
