BASKETBALL

The NBA Finals start tonight and, not surprisingly, the Golden State Warriors face the Cleveland Cavaliers for the 3rd straight year. Golden State won two years ago and Cleveland claimed last year’s title. Shockingly, LeBron James will be playing in his 7th straight NBA Finals (4 with the Miami Heat (winning 2) then 3 with the Cavs (winning 1).

While LeBron is busy preparing for one of the biggest games of his life, he had to respond to a racist incident. According to the police department, someone spray painted the N-word on LeBron James’ home in Brentwood, Los Angeles Wednesday morning. LeBron wasn’t there at the time as he’s in SF preparing for the Finals, but police are looking into video footage to see if they can catch the perpetrators of this hideous crime. In an interview during media day, LeBron told the media, “No matter how much money you have, how famous you are, how much people admire you, being black in America is tough.”

HOCKEY

The Pittsburgh Penguins scored three goals in three minutes in the third period to take a 2-0 lead over the Nashville Predators in the second game of the best of seven Stanley Cup Finals. Penguins 4, Predators 1.

Nike’s tag line, “Just do it” is iconic and has inspired many athletes and non-athletes alike. But in a ridiculous turn of events, a Russian hypnotherapist, Marina Rybnikova, is suing the company for an ad inspiring women to be all that they can be. She reportedly believes“Women need to be beautiful, not made of ‘bruises and punches.” This woman is seeking $9300 for causing “moral harm”. OY!!!
