NBA Championship Winners Cleveland Cavaliers

 Cleveland Cavaliers win NBA Championship

It’s another NBA Championship for LeBron James and a much awaited victory which Cleveland Cavaliers fans have longed for since 1964.

And this is how it had to go down: James leading the Cavaliers back from a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals to beat the Golden State Warriors, the team that won an NBA-record 73 regular-season games, on the road for the NBA championship.

The Duchess of Cambridge Caught on Video Rolling Eyes

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton,  was left rolling her eyes in irritation after being tapped on Kate Middleton Rolls Eyesthe shoulder by a pesky New Yorker and being told to ‘keep wrapping.’

The incident which occurred at the Northside Center for Child Development in Harlem was caught on video.    Kate was joined by a group of local grandmothers, the Duchess was helping to wrap presents destined for some of the city’s poorest children.

 This incident came hours before she suffered the indignity of being hugged by a sweaty LeBron James following a charity basketball match. During that incident, however, the Duchess showed no sign of irritation, instead smiling at Mr James and sharing a joke.

Sport Shorts – What the hell is going on here?

Typically, this is a down time in the world of sports. The NBA is finally over, most of golf’s majors are done, the chance of a triple crown winner has once again vanquished, and we as a nation are desperately waiting for the upcoming football season. Usually, the only thing that keeps our sporting interest this time of the year are a few MLB pennant races. But lately there have been several intriguing stories to occupy our time.

sports news and UpdatesThe NBA had has it’s share of headline news the past few months. The Sterling nightmare is a soap opera/black eye for the league and just won’t go away. Please Donald, sign the sale papers and go to some nursing home where you belong! The summer of big name player movement perked our interest for the last few months. Melo did his dog and pony show only to remain in the Big Apple. I thought it was about winning for him? Let’s be real. The only thing that matters to 99.9% of all players is the check! Stay in NY where it is all about you. ‘Bron toyed with the media for months and finally said adios to the fun in the sun to return home to sunny, warm, rich, titletown…..CLEVELAND! OK, he has a sense for family, home, and giving back to his community. I admire that. He has his rings now and the thought of winning an NBA title in C Town will certainly add to his legacy. Even if he does win an NBA title there, he will still be behind MJ…SORRY! Cleveland is in the midst of making a huge move by shipping off their #1 pick this year, their #1 pick from last year, and possibly their #1 pick in ’15 or ’16 to bring in Kevin Love. With LeBron, Irving, Love, and a mix of other off season free agent pick ups, Cleveland has gone from the outhouse to the penthouse in just a few months!

Staying with the NBA, I can’t believe Kevin Durant walked away from Team USA citing being tired and worn out. Was he afraid of being injured like team mate Paul George? Look, these guys play year round, they have to so they can stay in shape. The chances of getting hurt on the playground is much higher there than on the court with world class athletes. This just smells like the build up of his summer of 2016 dog and pony show whens he becomes a free agent and the world will be kissing his…..I want to go home….to Washington for a BRINKS truck full of $$$$!

There is no “I” in team but there are 2 “I’s” in Miami

Finally, normalcy was restored in the NBA with the Spurs dismantling the Heat in 5 games to win the NBA Championship.

The concept of buying championships just reeks in all professional sports these days so it was a breath of fresh air last week when the ultimate team, the NBA finalsSan Antonio Spurs, shredded LBJ, D-Wade, and Chris B. You grow up playing sports with the understanding that the team wins – not the individuals. However, when you get to the NBA, it’s all about me. So when you see team defense, team offense, team rebounding, a single mind set, a coach not afraid to bench or confront an athlete, and the love they all have for each other, you got to believe it is still ( and always will be ) the right way to play sports.

Here is the reality. Stop trying to compare LeBron James to Michael Jordan. MJ is the best ever and LBJ is a distant 8th or 9th. Period. End of discussion. ‘Bron wilted in the San Antonio heat and could not put the Heat on his back and carry them to another title. The theory in the NBA is that you have to have 3 stars to win a title. The great Laker teams of the ’80’s had 3 plus a great supporting cast.
