Ray Allen is the best three point shooter in NBA History, period. Even at age 37 he proved that he was able to bring his clutch shooting ability to a championship team. Case in point, the shot that tied Game six, which you can see below:

The Chicago Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup with the most improbable final moments in Stanley Cup history.  The Boston Bruins were leading 2-1 with 1:16 left in the third period of game 6, when the improbable happened.  Brian Bickel tied the game up for the Blackhawks and then Dave Bolland put them ahead 17 seconds later.

What a phenomenal game and series this was.  Congrats to the Chicago Blackhawks for winning their second Stanley Cup in the last four years. Check out the videos of the fantastic finish after the jump.

Dirk-Nowitzki4We all know Dirk Nowitzki as the 7-foot sharpshooter on the Dallas Mavericks.

What we don’t all know is that he also likes to play a little bit of soccer in his free time.

Just about a week ago, Dirk commented on the NBA’s flopping policy, saying “We’re never going to get rid of it,” he said recently. “But you got to limit it. It’s part of sports. It’s part of winning. Some people are smart and do a little extra thing to kind of sell the call. To me, that’s part of sports.

“You don’t want the obvious ones, the really, really bad ones. I think we’d love to get rid of those.

“But if somebody really does get shoved or hit a little bit, just to sell it a little for the referees so it does get the call, I don’t have a problem with that. I think that’s part of the game.”

Clearly Dirk feels the same way about flopping in soccer. Read the rest of this entry »

Bubba Watson Travelers Championship

Oh Bubba.  We’ve all been there before.  Whether you are a Sunday golfer or a seasoned pro, there comes a time when you just want to blame someone else instead of yourself when you hit a bad shot.  And that’s exactly what Bubba Watson did on Sunday in the final round of the Travelers Championship.

Bubba was leading by two strokes when he hit his tee shot on the 16th hole.  Watch the video after the jump to see how the whole scene unraveled.

Doc Rivers

Add Doc Rivers to the list of managers/coaches who have been traded.  A list that has never paid off for either side of the deal.  The Los Angeles Clippers and Boston Celtics agreed in principle to terms of a trade that would send Celtics coach Doc Rivers, to the Clippers in exchange for an unprotected fist round draft pick in 2015.

The Celtics will void the remaining three years and $21 million left on Rivers deal, and the Clips will sign him to the exact same contract.  The feeling is that with the acquisition of Rivers as coach, this will all but seal the deal to keep all-star point guard Chris Paul in LA with a 5-year max contract.

Contrary to reports swirling around the Internet, New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera would rather not be the starter for this year’s MLB All-Star Game.

When asked why he’d rather not start the game, Rivera said, “And the reason why I say that is it’s not what I do. What I do is close the games, I don’t start the games. It’s a privilege and honor, but I’m not contemplating it.”

Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland has the honor of picking the starter for the American League. Read the rest of this entry »

Miami-Heat-NBA-champion-2012-516x340

With their 95-88 victory in Game 7, the Miami Heat are the 2012-2013 NBA Champions.

The game was tight from start to finish, but Miami had just a little more left in their gas tank from Game 6, and that proved to be the difference at the end of the game.

LeBron James found his shooting stroke, hitting 5 3-pointers and multiple midrange jump shots, including the game clincher from the right elbow with about 30 seconds remaining.

LeBron James finished the night with 37 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals.

Here are some of the big headlines from Game 7.
