LeBron James, Emmy Nominations And Lindsay Lohan In Today’s Twitter-Wood

Emmy nominations for “Lost” may have exceeded those by other programs, save “Glee” and “The Pacific,” but posts in Twitter-Wood today didn’t care about the numbers. Some folks congratulated their friends, and others, like Conan O’Brien and Steve Agee, offered more sarcastic, bittersweet responses.

Feelings about LeBron James’ hour-long ESPN special and his prolonged decision over which NBA team to play with next season tended to be quite a bit more unanimous, meanwhile. I’ll let you click on down and see what Patton Oswalt and Michael Ian Black said, as well as who called James the “Justin Bieber” of the NBA.
