BAREFOOT IN THE PARK: Heat F Mike Miller made a three-pointer during Game 6 of the NBA Finals Tuesday night wearing only one shoe, and ESPN's Tony Kornheiser called the shot "money, because he's going to get a shoe deal." Kornheiser: "A shoe company is going to say, 'We make sneakers so good that Mike Miller can't throw them off.' And he's going to get a sock deal.
