LeBron James crushes Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria

For a second Thursday night in Miami, worlds collided. Kind of literally.

In the second quarter of the Heat's game against the Lakers, LeBron James was trying to chase down a loose ball by the sideline and lunged for it, crashing into a fan sitting courtside. But it wasn't just any old fan. It was Jeffrey Loria, the owner of the Miami Marlins.

TNT's Craig Sager asked LeBron about it at halftime to which LeBron responded he didn't know who it was he nearly crushed. And then after being told and acting like he knew, LeBron said he wanted to "get me one of those new hats they been wearing." Now that you know who he is, I'm sure you could just ask Mr. Loria after the game.

As an Expos fan of yore, I was really hoping to see some more damage done to Loria, even though it could never be the same as the damage Loria did to baseball in Montréal. The fact that this guy was allowed to take over another franchise after effectively pulling the plug on the Expos is another in the long list of Bud Selig's many mistakes as commissioner -- head owner.

Kinda thinking use of the word crush in the title is a bit of an embellishment, more like grazes
