The top story is about Real Madrid’s signing of Kaka and what it will bring to the rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona, with Kaka and Lionel Messi, two of the best midfielders playing today and both South Americans, now pitted against each other.

Forgive us if we are a little skeptical about the MVP runner-up’s motivation for creating a photo op with a player who’s been relegated to the D-League and just happens to be one of three NBA players from China.
