23 GIFs to Explain The NBA Finals

I'm not happy with the result, but I'll take it.

Miami Heat are World Champs.  I'm glad to see certain dudes on their team will get a ring, such as Mike Miller, and Shane Battier.

Lebron definitely learned his lesson from last year.  I guess it was just his time.  I'll give props where it's due.

With that said, the folks at Buzzfeed are at it again with these hilarious GIFs that break down the series.

NBA Commish David Stern Responds to Jim Rome's "Loaded" Question


NBA Commissioner David Stern made an appearance in "The Jungle" today, otherwise known as the Jim Rome Radio Show.

To say that things got testy during their discussion would be a gross understatement, as Stern took major offense to Rome's question about whether the NBA Lottery was "fixed."

Good on Romie for asking the question.  He meant no disrespect, and was throwing out a question on an issue that a lot of NBA fans (and sport fans in general) would love to get to the bottom of.

For the Commish to reply the way he did only showed his true character.

Shame on you Stern.

2012 NHL Playoffs: Unpatriotic Report And Final Thoughts

I read this week that Bell and Rogers are gunning for the "Hockey Night In Canada" rights, which are up for renewal in 2014. So after 60 years of broadcasting into Canadian homes, there's a chance that the CBC will lose the televised Saturday night tradition. Surprisingly, I'm not upset about this. Not even close. Ask the "10 years younger" version of Paqman and that dude would be raging. "Tradition! Legendary! Institution!" is what he would've said (note to younger Paqman: Chill out homeboy!). All I see today is a sub par product that needs a make over and new talent (I'm talking to you Cole...we cool MacLean. We cool.) I prefer the TSN team right now, and NBC for the Cup Final.

End Of An Era: The Detroit Red Wings' "Perfect Human" Nicklas Lidstrom Retires

(Photo via slapshotcentral.tumblr.com)

Stanley Cup Champion. Olympic Champion. World Champion. Norris Trophy Winner. Conn Smythe Recipient. All Star. After 20 dominant years, "Mr. Perfect" Nicklas Lidstrom retired from the franchise that drafted him 53rd overall in '89. He was selected after Sundin, Holik, Kolzig, Foote and Zamuner to name a few. He is the most decorated player of that draft and arguably the most important d-man of all time.
