Kevin James: This exhibition with Adam Sandler, James, John McEnroe and Jim Courier -- played in advance of the men's quarterfinal between Djokovic and Del Potro -- was a complete waste of time. But can we stop and give the King of Queens star some props on the air he got on his tweener? And should that be before or after we tell him you're actually not supposed to get any air on your tweener?
