NY Giants are gonna have to do the ‘Right Thing’ and pay the man….
Odell Beckham Jr. came back to the Giants and said he never wants to leave.
About a week ago, co-owner John Mara told a Town Hall assemblage of fans that he wanted Beckham to be a Giant for the rest of his career. On Tuesday, Beckham’s first day back on the field with the team since his conspicuous absence from voluntary OTA workouts, the receiver said that would be fine with him.
“I think we’re on the same page there,” he said after the first practice of the three-day mandatory minicamp. “Obviously, this is one of the best organizations in the league and I would love to be here for the rest of my life.”
Good. That’s settled.
In an abstract way, at least. The reality is that Beckham has two seasons remaining on his rookie deal, will be underpaid compared to similarly productive wideouts in 2017, and was absent from voluntary OTAs the past three weeks. That last part caused many to connect dots — some of which Beckham seemingly placed there himself on social media — and assume he was angling for a new deal by staying away from the team…..
The Cleveland Fav’s NEVER really had a chance THIS year…
The Golden State Warriors got ran over last year after having the lead….
But THIS year?
They aquired Kevin Durant as their muscle…
So the Warriors out ran the Cav’s in the first 3 games….
The Cav;’s found some adrenaline in the last game and come out winners…(Kyrie Irving carried them on his back)
But in the end?
Lebron James could NOT do it all….
Even with more than 39 points…
The Golden State Warriors ARE the Champ’s…
And they clinched at home….
And tonight’s game was pretty damn GOOD!

Patric Hornqvist corralled the rebound of a shot that had bounced off the end boards and banked it off the left arm of Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne with 95 seconds left in the third period Sunday to lift the Penguins to a 2-0 win and a six-game triumph in the Stanley Cup Final.
The goal by Hornqvist — formerly a member of the Predators — was challenged by Nashville on the basis of goaltender interference but the call on the ice was upheld and the goal was good. Carl Hagelin added an empty-net goal to clinch the victory.
It was the second straight game in which the Penguins shut out the Predators, who began the playoffs as the No. 8 seed in the West but won hearts and respect around the NHL for their resilience and grit as well as the exciting atmosphere created in Bridgestone Arena and around the city by fans who have fallen in love with the sport….
The Cleveland Cavaliers MUST form up behind Lebron James and somehow last long enough to ick out a win or it’s OVER!
Top Story Lines for Game 4
The 2017 N.B.A. finals may not have been particularly competitive so far, but the rubber match between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors has certainly captured the public’s interest, with ESPN reporting that the series has had the highest viewership for an N.B.A finals since 1998. With the Cavaliers on the brink of being eliminated on their home court, all eyes will be on Golden State to see if they can finish a perfect postseason.
■ The Warriors are trying to be the ninth team to complete a sweep of the N.B.A. finals and the first to do it without having lost a single playoff game. In his long career, LeBron James has only been swept out of the playoffs once, and that was in 2007 when Tim Duncan’s Spurs crushed James’s inexperienced and dramatically outgunned team in the finals.
■ Coming back from a 3-1 deficit last year was unprecedented, but the Cavaliers have an even bigger task this year, down 3-0. No N.B.A. team has ever come back from such a deficit in a seven-game series. It has been accomplished just four times in the N.H.L. and once in major league baseball.
■ The Cavaliers proved once again in Game 3 that when LeBron James and Kyrie Irving are at their absolute peak, they are able to keep up with or even surpass the Warriors. Unfortunately for Cleveland, they were only able to do that for 45 minutes, rather than all 48, with Coach Steve Kerr of the Warriors reassuring his players all game that they simply had to wait for the Cavaliers to wear down. For an upset in the game, or the series, Cleveland will have to find a way to have its stars go all out without running out of gas….

But in the end?

And Golden State did it on the road….
Warriors take 3-0 lead on Cavs
A late 3 from Kevin Durant helped push Golden State past Cleveland as the Warriors win their 15th straight playoff game.
The Warriors simply outplayed the Fav’s for the second game in a row….
Lebron James is one of the best Pro Basketball players ever, but?
The Golden State Warriors with Kevin Durant is just better….
Even when working at full capacity, the Golden State Warriors made basketball appear effortless in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night, whipping the Cleveland Cavaliers 132-113 to take a 2-0 lead in the series.
The Warriors are a team constructed to attack their opponents relentlessly in the open floor, and every time the Cavaliers looked up — off a miss, off a turnover, off a make or even a dead ball — Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston or Klay Thompson was driving the ball down their throats. In a game that featured more than 100 possessions, the Warriors used pace as lighter fluid. At one point or another, each of Golden State’s principals functioned as a ball handler, shooter, slasher or drag screener, keeping a beleaguered Cavs’ defense on its heels….Share on Facebook
Boston lost , as expected , to Lebron and the Cav’s 135 to 103 in game 5 of the semi-finals…
The first of the finals series games is June 1st @ 9:00PM on ABC….
The Celtics started this season with hope and optimism and a belief they would be capable of joining the league’s elite. They returned most of the young core from last year’s 48-win team and then added four-time All-Star Al Horford and the draft’s No. 3 overall pick, Jaylen Brown.
And, in a sense, they did ascend to the top tier. They won 53 games, secured the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, and then surged into the conference finals with home-court advantage against the Cavaliers.
But then this series served as a cold, hard reminder that there is still a sizable gap between the Celtics and the top.
Cleveland obliterated Boston in the first two games at TD Garden, and even though the Celtics were able to steal a win in Cleveland, the Cavaliers treated it more as a hiccup than a reason for concern.
In Game 5 on Thursday, the Cavaliers stomped on the Celtics early and did not lift their feet until they felt like it, as they coasted to a 135-102 win that was just as thorough as it appears….

Sport Sailing will begin around the beautiful island of Bermuda….
The Cleveland Fav’s lost to the Boston Celtic last night….
The odds of this happening I heard was 45 to 1 in Vegas …
Lebron James just didn’t have it….
Boston pulled the rabbit of the hat in the last minute of the game to win by a 3 pointer….
Anybody think tomorrows game will play the same way?
The Boston Celtics’ best player was unable to take the floor, and the Cleveland Cavaliers just needed theirs to show up.
With point guard Isaiah Thomas out with a hip injury, the Celtics’ 2-0 hole in the Eastern Conference Finals seemed ever deeper heading into Sunday’s Game 3, especially in Northeast Ohio. With LeBron Jamesenjoying perhaps his greatest statistical postseason, a third straight sweep for the Cavs seemed inevitable.
But then the Cavs stepped off the gas.
Boston overcame a 21-point deficit in a 111-108 victory when Avery Bradley sunk a decisive three-pointer with 0.1 seconds left. It not only marked Cleveland’s first postseason loss, but the first time in 50 games James has blown a 20-point lead in the playoffs.
In 23 second-half minutes, James registered just three points, one rebound and one assist. He shot 1-of-8 from the floor, including 0-of-2 from deep. But it wasn’t his poor shooting that was surprising. It was the lack of killer instinct.
“I had a tough game, period,” James said as he finished with just 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting in 45 minutes….
