Tweet of the Day: "Carmelo just thanked me for coming. Nobody has done that after a #lockout meeting this summer." -- briancmahoney (Associated Press' Brian C. Mahoney)

Rick Friedman Reader Comment of the Day: "If this is all some elaborate act, he deserves an Emmy. I, however, think that Ron Ar...uh...Metta World Peace has undergone a serious transformation over the last few years. He went from an immature, self-serving thug known for "the Brawl" to a team-first, unselfish contributor on a championship team, as well as an advocate for mental health issues. I'm glad to see he's changed his ways (for the most part), and I think more athletes should get involved in their communities more often." -- Ryan Hopkins
