Dwyane Wade finally showed up Monday night, as the Miami Heat thumped the Indiana Pacers to move on to their third straight NBA Finals, and elsewhere in the NBA, Jason Kidd called it a career after 19 incredible seasons in the league.

The NFL lost a legend in Hall of Famer Deacon Jones, the Bruins took a 2-0 lead on the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals, and Cliff Lee acknowledged that he very well could be traded — again.

— The Indiana football team unveiled several new helmets to its players.

— Dwight Howard lost a free throw shooting contest to the daughter of an LA Times columnist:
