Here's what you missed last night in sports:

Taking Over
LeBron James was completely right when he said "nobody" could stop Kevin Durant -- not even LeBron or his team. Durant put on an MVP show, leading the Oklahoma City Thunder to a resounding 112-95 win over the Miami Heat.

Positive Signs
Doctors are bringing Formula One legend Michael Schumacher out of his medically induced coma to slowly begin waking him up after he's showed signs of recovery from a skiing accident.

The Professor Is In
Edmonton Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens set a new National Hockey League shutout record, making a whopping 59 saves to blank the San Jose Sharks.

Astro Landing
Six-time All-Star Lance Berkman retired after 15 years in Major League Baseball.

Hawk's Eye
Someone may have identified the direct origin of the Seattle Seahawks' logo -- the answer could lie in the native population of the Pacific Northwest.

Judgment-Free Zone
The New York Post pulled this incredibly offensive front page featuring the New York Yankees' new Japanese pitcher, Masahiro Tanaka. You'd think they'd have learned their lesson not to anger the Asian-American population after this Jeremy Lin doozy.
