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.
If Miami gets eliminated tonight in Boston, the "heat" will be on LeBron James. He was involved in the biggest play of the game the other night. Boston might win, but the bigger story will be "Miami loses."
When the Dallas Mavericks upset the Miami Heat in Miami on Sunday, millions of Lebron-haters around the world experienced the greatest exhilaration of their lives.
The past two weeks have probably not been the best fortnight of Lebron James' life. And yes, he's brought that upon himself. But here's what I really don't understand: What did LeBron James do that was so terrible?
Well, it's good thing for Dallas that Dirk Nowitzki took his talents to America. When all was said and done, Nowitzki was the true fourth-quarter superstar who rose to the occasion.
As someone who has studied Buddhism (read: slightly above Wikipedia-level knowledge), I see several important concepts that resonate in the outcome of the series.
After "The Decision," Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert publicly pledged to Cleveland fans that the Cavaliers would win a title before James. He chuckled after James latest season ended Sunday night, leaving him still without a championship.
The Mavericks won the last three games by dominating the fourth quarter. They aren't the most athletic or explosive team, but they know how to play the game, and they are champions.
The Dallas Maverick's demonstrated that a passionate, determined, gritty and talented team could prevail over a group of superstars. This should be the biggest takeaway for the Miami Heat.
Not everyone agrees that we should continue to harbor such ill will against LeBron. Here, a roundup of what sports columnists are saying about "The Decision" as the Heat sit on the brink of elimination.
If Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks win this year's NBA Finals, as I fully expect them to do, it will be a huge step forward for U.S. sports and U.S. attitudes about the rest of the world.
In an offensive slugfest the Dallas Mavericks closed the game on a 15-3 run to defeat the Miami Heat 112-103 and take a 3-2 lead in the NBA Finals as the series shifts to Miami.
This may be the season that seriously tests the Yankees resources. OK, we know they have deep pockets, but how deep are they willing to dig into them?
It's not often I find myself siding with Iran, but here goes. Their women's soccer team had to forfeit a qualifying match for the 2012 Olympics because of their head scarves.
We now have a best-of-three series for the title, with Miami having the home court advantage. The Mavericks still need to win Game Five to have a reasonable chance of hoisting the championship trophy.
Hotshot minor leaguer Bryce Harper hit a long homer. Instead of hustling out of the batter's box, he stood and admired it. If that wasn't bad enough, as he neared home, he blew a kiss to the opposing pitcher.
