Sports video charts from North America's YouTube, China's Tudou, and France's Dailymotion on December 7 2010 show an ESPN studio spat, LeBron's unwelcome return to Cleveland, and Tevez' substitution for Manchester City.

Top of YouTube's chart, ESPN's Matt Millen refuses to accommodate the opinion of co-analyst Steve Young, leaving host Stuart Scott to recover the conversation.

Dailymotion viewers preferred the reaction of Manchester City's captain and top scorer Carlos Tevez after being substituted against Bolton Wanderers on December 4 - his goal won the game and moved City up to fourth in the Premier League.

In China, Tudou users watched Miami Heat's LeBron James greeted by a cauldron of jeers at his previous club (Cleveland) on December 2 following a controversial summer transfer. He went on to notch a season best 38-point game.

Also popular this week are goals and highlights from Barcelona's 5-0 drubbing of derby rivals Real Madrid.
