LeBron James actually does a very respectable job rockin' out a rendition of the Rick James hit "Super Freak."  

Most of the time when athletes attempt to do renditions of songs, it all goes horribly wrong.  LeBron James actually does a pretty good job with this Rick James song though.  LeBron even rocked out a wig during his routine.

LeBron's teammate, Shane Battier, hosted a charity event called "South Beach Battioke."  Get it?  Battier.  Battioke.  I dig the title, Shane.  Nice touch, bud.  The event was in Miami Beach at the Eden Roc Renaissance Hotel.  Heat President Pat Riley also sang a song during "South Beach Battioke."  Riley performed "My Girl" by the Temptations.

On a side note, while I'm thinking about music, there is something that I have to address.  During my first ever visit to the Times Union Center in Albany, NY, I glanced up to the rafters and saw a banner for Billy Joel.  Really?  Look, nothing against Billy Joel.  The guy is a very good musician and entertainer, but does he really deserve a banner.  Plus, it's one of the only banners in the rafters.  It looks so odd when you're watching a sporting event and you see the Billy Joel banner.  Maybe it's just me, but the standards have to be a little higher, Capital Region.  Seriously.
