Muhammad Ali’s Legacy, Djokovic’s Historic Win, Williams Loses In Final, Warriors’ Defense Crushes Cavs


Muhammad AliThe most charismatic and greatest boxer of the ages, Muhammad Ali, died over the weekend at the age of 74 due to respiratory issues related to his Parkinson’s disease. Ali was a three-time heavyweight champion but transcended the world of boxing and became known for his anti-war stance and his opinions on the world.  One of his assistants captured Ali’s presence in the ring with the now famous saying, Mr. Ali would “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”



By winning the French Open, Novak Djokovic accomplished what no male player has in over a decade, won all four Grand Slam titles at once. The last player to accomplish this feat was Rod Laver in 1969.

In the women’s draw, top seeded Serena  Williams lost to Garbine Muguruza. The win was Muguruza’s first Grand Slam title.



The Golden State Warriors certainly made a statement at home in game 2 of the NBA Finals. Their defense simply crushed the Cleveland Cavaliers for a decisive win. On offense, the Warriors’ Draymond Green was the star with 28 points and 5 3-pointers. The Warriors are up 2-0 in the best of seven series. Game 3 is Wednesday in Cleveland 9:00 pm EST ABC. Warriors 110, Cavaliers 77.
