MELO AND LALA VASQUEZ FINALLY TIE THE KNOT

Although it’s been several days since basketball star LeBron James made his fateful free agent decision and signed with the Miami Heat, the fallout continues-particularly in New York. On the same day that the New York Post ran a headline calling LeBron a “jackass,” James was booed while attending the wedding of Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony in The Big Apple. James married longtime girlfriend and former MTV personality Lala Vasquez.

Meanwhile, Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert was blasted by civil rights leader Jesse Jackson on Sunday for treating James like a “runaway slave.” Jackson played the race card chastising Gilbert (who also owns Quicken Loans) for thinking he is the “owner” of LeBron James and not simply the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Given the opportunity to back down from his original remarks, Jackson reaffirmed them in a speech to the United Auto Workers in Detroit Monday. The Washington Post ran a weekend column comparing James to the “Roots” tv character Kunta Kinte.
