6.20.16: Cleveland, this is for you

Game recognize game, and seriously…what a game. Let’s give it up to the Cleveland Cavaliers, NBA World Champions.

QUIPS FOR THIS WEEK

NBA

For the first time in 52 years, Believeland has come true — the Cleveland Cavaliers have brought a championship back to Cleveland. Down 3-1 and with the end in sight, LeBron James willed his team back to life and ultimately to a championship by defeating the Golden State Warriors 93-89. LeBron James had a triple double and said it best: “Cleveland, this is for you.”

And just like that, the season is over…but don’t worry it’s not all June gloom, the NBA Draft is on Thursday!

Soccer

On Thursday, the United States beat Ecuador 2-1 in the Copa America quarterfinals, after goals from Clint Dempsey and Gyasi Zardes. The USMNT will play Argentina in the semifinals tomorrow at 9pm EST in Houston. The other semifinal, Colombia v. Chile, will take place on Wednesday at 8pm EST in Chicago. Then, on Sunday the 26th, we’ll see the winners of both match-ups play in the Copa America final.
