Lue says Love, Irving helping LeBron in ways he's never been helped -
A smart decision by James, which is starting to pay off. The Cavs got to the Finals last year but that was due in large part to James as both Irving and Love were injured for large parts of the postseason. Love was out after the first round and Irving missed a few games of the Eastern Conference Finals and then got injured in Game 1 of the Finals, ending his postseason prematurely. This year though, things are much different.

Curry on LeBron's MVP comments: 'I've gotten good at ignoring people' -
However, that doesn't mean we needed to do this with the 2015-16 MVP. Golden State Warriors' demigod Stephen Curry controlled the story of the entire season. Whatever he did on the court had the most interest and it wasn't even close. He had the highest selling jersey. He had the biggest moments. He had the highest ratings. And he put up a historic season that seemed impossible prior to his ascension into historic stardom.

David Ortiz has collected a lot of clutch hits throughout his Red Sox career, including many of the double and home-run variety. Few, if any of those were triples.

Draymond Green says talking trash to Tim Duncan is pointless -
"I do have a Tim Duncan story. My rookie year I kind of talked junk to everybody. In the middle of the game I started talking to Tim, and I had already got into it with somebody on their team. I don't remember who it was. But I started talking to Tim and he kind of just stared at me. I just kept talking junk to him and he kept staring at me.
