Five Spot / Quick hitters on the light side

1. TIKI TORCHED

Tiki Barber (above), who left his pregnant wife for a former NBC intern, lost his job as a contributor to "The Today Show." Bobby Valentine says he's not a candidate for Barber's job.

2. NOW AND ZEN

Lakers coach Phil Jackson is thinking strongly about retiring. Jackson is so stressed out by it that Ron Artest offered him the use of his shrink.

3. GRASS-FED DRAMA

How about that marathon tennis duel at Wimbledon: 10 hours and counting. It's such a milestone match that Sarah Ferguson wouldn't even scalp her tickets.

4 THRASHING ABOUT

Sources say that the Chicago Blackhawks are trading playoff hero Dustin Byfuglien to Atlanta. So it's goodbye Stanley Cup, hello Max Afinogenov!

5. WALL TO WALL

Everyone says John Wall is a sure thing as the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft tonight -- unless Rolling Stone reporters get to him first.
