Rooks and Brian Williams are the biggest guys I've ever seen in person 

I've met 3 NBA players (all Spurs at the time) - Danny Green (6' 6"), Sean Elliott (6' 8"), and the tallest of the three, Antoine "Big Dog" Carr (6 9").

Carr is shorter than both Rooks and Brian Williams (Bison Dele) though.

Tragic and bizarre death for Williams/Dele on a boat in the South Pacific.

No surprise then that so many end up broke.

I'm ready for Game 7 and for a Cleveland win. We'll see. This town needs a win. Especially right before Trump gets here and bums us out.

Cavs all the way!  They are showing they have the sheer willpower when they need it the most.

I would never have expected the season to end the way it just did, though probably the Warriors lost game 5 due to Green's suspension.  He is definitely going to have to find a way to play with passion but not quite so out of control, since it arguably cost his team the title.

What an amazing game, and what a great day for NE Ohio. Too many decades without a win, well that's changed!

It is absolutely history!  A great, great Finals.  Look at that defensive clampdown in the 4th quarter.  This team simply had the will to win.

I tuned in at 10 o'clock, and watched the last hour.  It was tied 71-71 at that point.  It seemed to me that much of GS's offense was Curry attempting three-pointers that didn't come close.

I read a few days ago that GS's center Andrew Bogut was injured and out for the series.  Certainly it was remarkable that Cleveland came back after being down 3-1, but I don't recall a team winning a championship without its starting center for the last two games either.

I had good friends in school from Cleveland, so I'm happy for them.  Bay Area sports fans have enjoyed a number of championships in recent years.

Another interesting stat in this historic finals is that, with less than two minutes remaining in game 7 and the game tied 89 - 89, Cleveland and Golden State had scored the same amount of points (699 points each). An amazing series.

Looks like the Bulls are trading D Rose to the Knicks 

Party Time in the Land today

Be careful what you wish for, Knicks fans. Derrick is pretty much washed up, almost certainly can't run the Triangle (which might be a blessing, I know), is a potential locker-room cancer (wait till you encounter Derrick's brother and the rest of the entourage), and he has a rape lawsuit on his docket, the details of which are nauseating.

BTW, if the Bulls has the brains and the balls for it, they now should trade Jimmy Butler while he has a good deal of value. A fine player for sure, but not the centerpiece of championship team, and last year he openly refused to play coach Fred Hoiberg's offense.

Somebody (not an authority) told me today that Durant might go to Golden State.

The Knicks have traded for Rose and there is talk that they may try to sign Noah. I'm sure that the Bulls are happy that someone wants their cripples.
