Where do I begin? Even without I'll Have Another, the Belmont Stakes was terrific. Great finish. The "big three" of Miami played like a big three, so you have another whole series to root against LeBron James if that's your bent.
The Celtics failed to show up Thursday night and tried to defend James with a bundle of different looks; will LeBron come out in Game 7 with the same mindset? Or, will he fall to 0-3 all-time in Game 7s?
I'll watch that. Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Masters Champ Bubba Watson will play together for the first two rounds of next week's U.S. Open.
Sports have created a worldwide community where almost anyone can feel connected with one person based solely on a love and passion for a game.
LeBron and Spoelstra are easy targets to throw under the bus when the Heat eventually get eliminated but not the right ones. You can't win in the NBA without depth, and the Heat has none. That's on Riley.
Paul Pierce did it again, ladies and gentleman. In a series full of young superstars, Pierce -- as he has throughout his entire career in Boston -- provided yet another dagger in the biggest of playoff games.
For weeks now, the Celtics have given Bostonians every right to root and dream even as national NBA analysts and hometown sports reporters dissected their aches, their age and their weaknesses.
Their win on Sunday night put the pressure back on the Heat and, more importantly, back on LeBron James. Pressure bursts pipes and the Celtics have seen him crack before.
Nationally, while all eyes on Florida, Miami Dade's local elections, which take place in August, are going rarely noticed. This is more than a shame considering the impact these local elections will have on all of us.
It was not supposed to be this close. Boston was not supposed to be this good; Miami, not this vulnerable. Four games through what has already been a grueling Eastern Conference finals, Miami and Boston are dead even at two games apiece.
Although this was his best season statistically there are other players whose individual contributions were more vital to their respective team's success.
In a new segment with Noah Coslov of CineSport, I break down why the Celtics' swing-and-miss Game 2 effort was a necessary but wildly costly risk, even as the series shifts back to Boston. Rajon Rondo was magnificent with 44 points, but he played all 53 minutes.
Night after night, game after game, on offense and on defense, they are now working together as never before to produce plays that sometimes defy belief.
LeBron James is going to get his. And if Game 1 against Boston in the Eastern Conference Finals was any indication, he'll have an easy time of it.
The number of people unhappy with Obama exceeds the number of people who comprise the very rich. So why are many of the non-rich unhappy with Obama? Perhaps the answer is similar to a story frequently told about sports fans.
In a new segment with Noah Coslov of CineSport, I break down why LeBron, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat remain vulnerable against Indiana in Game 6.
