Lisa Leslie leads LA to the WNBA title, the Williams' sisters keep on rolling and Karl Malone steps inside a monster truck. Here's a look at the latest chaos from the world of sports.

Los Angeles takes another basketball title, hockey's superstars warm up for the Winter Olympics and Karl Malone gets ready to rumble in a brand new monster truck. Here's what happened in the world of sports over the 2001 Labor Day weekend.

1Mike Mussina of the New York Yankees came one strike away from pitching a perfect game against the Boston Red Sox on September 2nd. Carl Everett spoiled Mike's party by hitting a single off Mike with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. But it doesn't really matter. The Yankees still won and ended any chance the Red Sox had of making the playoffs.

1Venus and Serena Williams are rolling through the US Open tennis tournament in New York. Venus is the defending champion and has yet to lose a set in this year's tournament. Serena could face Martina Hingis in the semi-finals which would be better than a WWF cage match. Martina began the trash talking by saying the Williams' sisters, "are able to get more sponsors because they are black." The Swiss Miss vs Momma Smash - let's get ready to rumble.

1Why are NHL superstars already playing hockey when summer isn't even over yet? They're getting ready for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Canadian and American Olympic hockey teams are holding four day training camps in the first week of September so they'll be used to playing with each other when the Games get underway in February. Mario Lemieux, Steve Yzerman and Joe Sakic are some of the guys who'll be playing for Canada while Brett Hull, Jeremy Roenick and Brian Leetch will be playing for Team USA.

1Lisa Leslie is winning everything this year. Lisa the LA Sparks won the WNBA title with a two game sweep of the Charlotte Sting. Lisa scored 24 points in the deciding game on September 1st and was named the Finals MVP. In 2001, Lisa has also won league MVP and MVP of the All-Star game.

1Karl Malone is becoming a two-sport athlete. When he's not slamming and rebounding for the Utah Jazz, the Mailman will be crushing cars and flying over jumps with his own monster truck team. Karl's truck will be black with a picture of him holding a basketball painted on it. The truck will also have number 32 painted on it - the same number Karl wears for basketball.
