King James got one and decided to share the love and gifted his Miami Heat teammates with replica belts.

"Always wanted to be the WWE Heavyweight World Champion so today I surprised my teammates with their own for their collection," he wrote on Instagram, along with a photo of the defending NBA champs posing in their new belts.

Supermodel Carol Alt, who appeared on magazine covers before Kate Upton was born, told HuffPost Live she does not understand what all the "hullabaloo" is about the 21-year-old model.

"I like Kate, she's a pretty girl," Alt said. "But all the girls are nice, and all the girls are pretty."

Alt went on to tell HuffPost Live that perhaps social media played a role in the rise of Kate Upton and "that's why she's had more word of mouth than anybody."

A verdict has been reached in the civil lawsuit filed against Lisa Kudrow by her former manager, who claims he is owed residuals from her days on "Friends."

A 10-2 decision was reached in favor of Scott Howard, who was Kudrow's manager from 1991 to 2007, saying the actress was liable for breach of contract, KABC reports.

The jury awarded the plaintiff $1.6 million for past and future economic losses.

In a statement, Kudrow's attorney Gerald Sauer said, "The jury's verdict is merely one step in the legal process. This case ultimately will be resolved at the appellate level. Ms. Kudrow has faith in the judicial system, and she believes that the eventual outcome of this contractual dispute will be in her favor."
