1. Boston took it to Cleveland in the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals, but the Celtics now need a readjustment heading into Game 4.
  2. Another week of NBA basketball is in the books. Outside of the Eastern and Western Conference Finals and the Draft Lottery not much happened this week. So, I decided to take the role of GM for 10 NBA teams and decided who on that team I would trade…….let me know how I did!!! The NBA Draft Order is Set After much anticipation, we now know who is drafting where June 21st at the Barclay Center. Now be prepared for the endless stream of mock drafts and draft chatter for the next month and a half. Except from me as this is the last time I will be mentioning it. Mike Budenholzer is the new Milwaukee Bucks Head Coach Mike Budenholzer is probably the happiest guy on the planet. He was able to leave the
  3. After a few years of the now-historically remembered, all-out, bottom-out rebuild, 2015 was the year the Houston Astros started to bear the fruits of their endeavors. The farm system was sufficiently stocked and General Manager Jeff Luhnow had successfully gathered more young, talented parts than he could ever need. That meant a trade. It was nearly veteran pitcher Cole Hamels, but the Philadelphia Phillies all-star pitcher chose the in-state rival Rangers instead. Future Astros Carlos Beltran and Josh Reddick were dealt, but not yet wearing Astros orange, as that would come in free agency following the season. For their first big splash since tearing it all down in 2011 with the Hunter Pence
  4. IndyCar's marquee names turned a day of qualifying for the ''Greatest Spectacle in Racing'' into a throwback, nail-biting, bumping affair. Helio Castroneves, seeking a redemptive record-tying fourth victory, was fastest around Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Danica Patrick was fast, too, and she averaged 227.610 mph to snag the ninth and final spot in the next round of qualifying, the Fast Nine.
  5. Mary Babers, mother of Warriors star Draymond Green, has never shied away from voicing her opinion on social media, and she's not afraid to be critical of Golden State. Draymond tried to keep his mom, who has " no chill," off Twitter entirely back in 2015. During last year's Finals, Babers famously accused the referees of being paid off, and she clapped back at Charles Barkley earlier this year. Like any Warriors fan, Draymond's mom wasn't happy with the team's performance in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. Babers criticized last year's Finals MVP Kevin Durant, in particular, for relying on iso ball. Some interpreted Babers' commentary as an attack on Durant, and ESPN's Stephen A. Smith
  6. Jordan Spieth's putting struggles were on full display alongside Tiger Woods last Sunday at the Players Championship, most notably at the 72nd green, where the three-time major winner three-putted from five feet for a quadruple-bogey 8. Perhaps a trip to his home course, Trinity Forest Golf Club, for the AT&T Byron Nelson this week would be just what the doctor ordered to break out of his slump. After carding a first-round two-under 69, Spieth was even through four holes on Friday as he lined up a 22-foot birdie putt at the par-4 15th to get into red figures for the round.
  7. With the Astros and Cleveland Indians tied in the seventh inning, Tony Kemp ripped a fair ball down the right field line that was destined to score two runs. Marwin Gonzalez easily scored from second base to give Houston the lead, and trail runner Derek Fisher was right behind him from first base with an all-important insurance run.
  8. The Celtics are in great shape. The Hornets are in terrible shape. Wanting to get Justise Winslow, the Celtics reportedly offered six picks – including four potential first-rounders – for the No. 9 pick.
  9. Staff Growing tension has emerged between NASCAR and its teams despite efforts to collaborate more in recent years. NASCAR stakeholders have worked to improve the team owner model to make the sport more valuable to current investors and attractive to prospects. That included implementing the charter system in 2016 for team owners in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series to form enterprise value. It's also included working collaboratively on issues ranging from marketing, to rules changes, to controlling costs. ` But several team owners and their top executives are frustrated by the slow pace of change, which has strained their relationship with NASCAR. This comes as this year's season
  10. Cleveland Browns free safety Damarious Randall has been hitting the media circuit the past couple of days. First, let’s start off with his interview on SiriusXM Radio, where he said he was “definitely quite surprised” when the Green Bay Packers traded him. But at the same time, he felt wanted in Cleveland, since some former Packers front office people had just gone there. Randall said when he was a cornerback, he found it hard to watch tape because he just had to focus on the wide receiver and, as a football junky, he “likes to see the whole play.” He feels his return to his “natural position,” free safety, will allow him to do that this year. Regarding his new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams,
