Five Spot / Quick hitters on the light side

1. WHAT GOES AROUND

LeBron James (above) wrote on Twitter that "Karma is a [pain]" after his former team, the Cavaliers, lost to the Lakers by 55 points. A guy who compares his Heat team to the Beatles is talking about karma? Say hello to Dwyane Wade's new girlfriend, Yoko Ono.

2. CAM IN FOCUS

Auburn's Cam Newton is pondering whether to enter the NFL draft. It's tough to turn down the money and endorsements. Drew Rosenhaus has promised Newton that if he goes pro, he'll never have to pay for another box of Fig Newtons.

3. LET THE CHIPS FALL

Brady Hoke was introduced as head coach at Michigan. He said he's got a three-year plan to get the Wolverines playing "for all the Tostitos."

4. VINTAGE PLAYBOOK

David Letterman on how the Jets will be motivated by their coach Sunday: "Just before the game, Rex Ryan will be reading them the entire U.S. Constitution."

5. HEAT OF THE MOMENT

The following line, "Heat not a furnace for your foe so hot that it do singe yourself," was spoken by:

1. Tom Brady, reacting to Antonio Cromartie's trash talking;

2. Norfolk in Shakespeare's "King Henry VIII";

3. The guy in charge of the sideline heaters at Soldier Field.
