Game 7. Here we go. The Cavs have fought back from the brink of elimination after two legendary performances by LeBron James, and tonight the final game of the NBA season at 8 p.m. ET will decide who wears the King’s crown. The Warriors are all too familiar with 3-1 series comebacks after OKC’s epic collapse in the Western semi’s, and they understand the pressure sits firmly on their shoulders to complete the best season in NBA history.
The Cavs have flipped the script on the series. They have all the momentum, the Warriors have home-court, and Game 7 is undoubtedly one of the greatest professional basketball games that will ever be played. It’s the world’s best team versus the world’s best player, it’s going to be a classic. And in case you hadn’t heard, LeBron seems alright with playing the role of party crasher in Oracle Arena tonight. It truly doesn’t get any better than this.
Hey now…I didn’t forget, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
Not to be upstaged by an NBA game, shout out to all the men out there making a difference in their child’s life. Biological, step-parents, and all the women out there playing the part of both parents, we salute you, and thank you greatly for the profound impacts you have made on our lives. Our good man, Mr. Freddie Maggard, will be by a little later to post a Father’s Day tribute, be ready for one hell of an article.
Stoops grilled the offense
Some steaks on his Green Egg charcoal grill yesterday. The team got together for a little camaraderie and cookout/pool action on a hot June day in Lexington. No word on if Chef Jojo gave Stoops some relief at grillmaster.
Courtney Love is an awesome dude
UK sophomore linebacker Courtney Love posted a great tribute to Trey Blair, a local kid who is challenged by Down syndrome. He and Marcus McWilson spent time with Trey, and subsequently befriended one of Kentucky’s finest young fans. It’s always nice to see our players in action in the community, being role models, and bringing BBN together. Well done, Courtney!
