• Does Bill Belichick treat all his ex-assistants-turned-NFL-head-coaches the same way?
• Speaking of, Eric Mangini is making drastic changes with the Browns - such as moving the video room up one floor at a cost of $500,000.
• DC Comics’ lawyers come down faster than a speeding bullet on the NBA for marketing “Krypto-Nate” T-shirts without their permission.

When we attended All-Star Weekend and saw all the trappings that are now required to participate in a dunk contest, we had two thoughts. First, will next year’s dunk contest cost more to mount than “Cleopatra“? And second, how did the NBA get away with using so much of DC Comics’ intellectual property (including the Hall of Justice!) without irritating Time Warner?

While we may not know about the former yet (though we hear Michael Bay is helming LeBron James’ first dunk next year), we now know the answer to the latter: the NBA didn’t get away with it.
