The huge rivalry between Nike and Adidas will play out at the 2016 Euro tournament that started yesterday. The amount of buzz and money on the line is staggering for these sneaker and sports brands with a tournament of this size. The video above gives a rundown of the rivalry in the context of this tournament.
“The Greatest” has passed. Muhammad Ali, one of the icons of the 20th century that transcended sports, died at the age of 74.
In his prime, Ali was an incredible fighter. He was also an entertainer with his original rhymes and hysterical antics with Howard Cosell, though there was also a dark side with his “gorilla” taunts of Joe Frazier.
He stood up to the US government at the height of his career when he refused to join the army and go to Vietnam War, sacrificing much of his boxing prime. Still, his most epic fights were still to come with the Thrilla in Manilla and the Rumble in the Jungle.
This series is a huge opportunity for Lebron James. Many are contemplating what will be said of him if he goes 2-5 in the NBA Finals, but he will truly enhance his legendary career if he can bring a championship to the City of Cleveland.
The oddsmakers have the Warriors as the favorites, but most experts expect a close series.
Frankly, if the Cavs play as well as they did in the Toronto series, dominating the paint and nailing three-pointers, then they should be able to topple the Warriors, who have not been playing their best basketball.

The Oklahoma City Thunder were poised to pull of an epic upset as they sat on a 3-1 lead on the 73-win Golden State Warriors. That now seems like a long time ago.
The Thunder had an incredible opportunity to close out the series last night as they nursed a lead in the fourth quarter, but Klay Thompson went wild with 11 three-pointers, which seemed to inspire Steph Curry to return to MVP form as well.
