Gold Rush: James, Walsh, May-Treanor Make Post-Beijing TV Rounds

James Discusses Beijing Olympics Experience
During Appearance On "Late Show"
Cavaliers and U.S. F LEBRON JAMES appeared on CBS’ “Late Show” last night, with host David Letterman apologizing for going long with his interview with headline guest U.S. Sen. Barack Obama. James: “No problem. Y'all were good.” When asked for his thoughts on Obama, James said, “He can play for us too.” When asked about the difference between his first Olympic experience in Athens in '04 and this year in Beijing, James said, “The main difference was we finally understood what it meant to represent our country. To be an Olympian is a privilege, it’s an honor, and I don’t think the first team understood that in 2004.” Letterman at one point said, “Tell me about the (NBA) season. The Knicks are still not in the league so tell me, what does that mean for Cleveland?” (“Late Show,” CBS, 9/10).

Volleyball Lessons During Apperance 
DAY AT THE BEACH: U.S. beach volleyball duo KERRI WALSH and MISTY MAY-TREANOR appeared on yesterday’s edition of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” wearing U.S. Olympic jackets and their Gold Medals from the Beijing Games. Walsh said wearing the Gold Medal “makes every outfit sassier.” May-Treanor talked about the "butt slaps" Walsh gives her during matches, saying, "I don't notice it because I'm on the receiving end. … It's like a high-five now." Actress Pamela Anderson followed Walsh and May-Treanor and asked host ELLEN DeGeneres, "Are (Walsh and May-Treanor) coming out?" Anderson then proceeded to remove her dress to reveal a bikini, saying, "I can't help myself." Walsh, May-Treanor and Degeneres played volleyball at the end of the show, with Walsh and May-Treanor wearing bikinis (“The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” 9/10).
