Lawyers for convicted murderer Oscar Pistorius hope a South African parole review board will release him to home confinement today.

Pistorius, 28, was found not guilty of murder and convicted of the lesser charge of culpable homicide in the shooting death of his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day 2013.

Pistorius claimed he thought an intruder was in his Pretoria mansion when he fired five shots through a bathroom door.

Miami Heat superstar LeBron James tweeted this pic of himself wearing his gold medal after Team USA defeated Spain 107-100 in final round play at the 2012 Olympics on Sunday. The win didn't come easy for the world's #1 team. They had to come from behind to secure the win against Pau Gasol and Spain's best playmakers.

"We knew it wasn't going to be easy. We didn't want it easy," LeBron James said. "A lot of teams have won gold easy. We didn't want it that way. We're a competitive team, and we love when it gets tight. That's when our will and determination kind of shows. It was the same way in '08."

The United States won the gold race, taking home 46 of the precious metals.

What happened to the dress code that the NBA instituted a while back? I have never seen LeBron James cleaned up nicely except in that Vitamin Water commercial. Anyway, thanks to Greg for this shot of LeBron arriving in China for the Summer Olympic games.

About the only thing stylish in this photo is the Louis Vuitton Monogram Keepall LeBron is wearing. So he gets a pass for the rest of his getup.

Greg pointed out the $350 Beats By Dre headphones that LeBron has -- and that all the Olympic basketball players received for free from Apple. LeBron is wearing his with the red accessory wire for his iPOD. The Beats By Dre headphones use the same noise canceling technology as the BOSE QuietComfort Noise Reduction headphones which, coincidentally, also retails for $350.

EDIT:

If you missed it, Oprah briefly interviewed convicted felon Marion Jones on her show today. Apparently, Jones is already in federal custody and was not able to fly to Chicago to appear in person on the show.

As predicted, Oprah went a little easy on Marion (probably due to time constraints). She asked Jones only one tough question about lying to the feds. Jones told Oprah she "made a mistake" and said God would forgive her even if people didn't. According to radio host Ryan Cameron of the Ryan Cameron Show on V-103, Oprah said it "kills her" when people call on God after they get into trouble.

Jones also told Oprah she and her husband didn't plan to tell their 4-year-old son that mommy was going to jail. Jones choked up when she recounted how her son was upset that she couldn't take him to school this morning.

On Friday, Jones was sentenced to 6 months in the federal pen for lying to the feds about her steroid use and a check fraud scheme.
