Sun-Sentinel: all the news you can't use

I'm not sure what to make of this.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel, it appears, has ventured into previously uncharted areas of Totally Useless LeBron James Trivia.

While visiting the Sun-Sentinel's website this morning, my eye was immediately drawn to a prominent headline informing me that a truce has been brokered between Lil Wayne and LeBron James.

MIAMI — LeBron James and Lil Wayne apparently are back on speaking terms.

At least that was the appearance at Tuesday night's Miami Heat-Indiana Pacers game at AmericanAirlines Arena.

In a Rolling Stone interview last month, the rap star expressed disappointment about not being greeted by James and teammate Dwyane Wade while he sat courtside at a Heat road game in New Orleans earlier this season.

"Come holla at me," the rap star was quoted in one of the less-profane portions of the interview. "At least come ask me why I'm not rooting for you."
The story, by the S-S's Ira Winderman, was posted on the paper's website yesterday at 1:58pm. Five minutes later, at 2:03pm, the item was picked up and posted to the Miami New Times blog, Riptide 2.0.

It's not surprising that New Times would deem this kind of stuff newsworthy. New Times is where I usually expect find all the latest news on Previously Incarcerated Rappers.

But why the Sun-Sentinel would consider this kind of crap worthy of any kind of coverage is bewildering.

The fact that the link is prominently displayed on its website almost 24 hours after the story first appeared, is beyond comprehension.

Look for more LeBron James scoops from the S-S in the weeks to come including a story that will reveal that James puts his pants on one leg at a time, usually his left leg first.

And the paper is still working to confirm that James prefers mint-flavored dental floss to regular.
