Cavs stun Warriors to win NBA Finals!

Many of us expected an epic series, and Game 7 certainly delivered.

The Block – The video above will be replayed for generations. This highlight will forever be one of the iconic moments that define the greatness of Lebron James.

The Shot II – Cleveland fans have had to endure a 52-year championship drought, along with the never-ending montage of failures including The Shot from Michael Jordan. Now Cleveland fans have their own “shot” to celebrate for generations, as Kyrie Irving delivered the three-point dagger over Steph Curry to give the Cavs a three-point lead with under a minute left in the game.

The Comeback – No team had ever come back from a 3-1 definite in the NBA Finals. Also, the Cavs were facing the record-setting 73-win Warriors and had to win two games on their court, including game 7. This was a comeback for the ages. Much of this comeback was fueled by the arrogance of the Warriors as they called out Lebron James after game 4, only to see Lebron rise to the challenge and make them eat their words.

The Collapse – Speaking of Steph Curry and the Warriors, this one has to hurt. The either choked or they were exposed. Either way this was an epic fail. The Cavs turned up their defense on the Splash Brothers and dared them to try to take over the game. They wilted under the pressure.

This series, and this Cavs championship, will be talked about for years to come.

NFL Week 5 MVP, COY and ROY power rankings

You think it’s hard to predict the games and standings from week to week? Try picking MVP candidates. There are five or six different candidates emerging every week. We’ll do this as one post again today and start separating them out next week. And I’m sure by this time Tuesday everything will be turned upside down again. Enjoy the games today everyone!

MVP Power Rankings

1. Michael Vick, Philadelphia Eagles—He didn’t play last week and yet the Eagles still won, but barely, on the road in San Fran. Against a team that still hasn’t won a game yet. And hence my case is made again. And when Kolb and the Eagles lose at home to the Falcons today, fans in Philly will be chanting Vick’s name, which will have made my case again.

Q&A with ESPN’s Mike Golic

If you listen to ESPN Radio’s “Mike & Mike In the Morning,” you know that former NFL defensive lineman Mike Golic is one half of the equation and the counterpoint to long-time “Sportscenter” anchor Mike Greenberg. While both share a passion for sports, Golic takes the role of the “man’s man” and frequently discusses his passion for food and in particular, his love for grilling out. Well, lucky for us, Golic recently teamed up with Kingsford Charcoal to promote their new and improved briquets (and their new flavors of KC Masterpiece sauce and marinade), as well as with chef Chris Lilly, who owns Big Bob Gibson’s Bar-B-Q and is an award winning barbecue chef. So we’ve got some of their special recipes on our Grub For Guys page on Bullz-Eye.com, but we also had the opportunity to interview Golic about ESPN, grilling out, and of course, football:

The Scores Report: Hey Mike, we know you love to eat and love to grill. What is your favorite KC Masterpiece new flavor and why?

Mike Golic: I’m an original flavor kind of guy – no bells or whistles needed for me. But, I’ve tried the new KC Masterpiece Smoky Bourbon Barbecue Sauce and the smoky, sweet taste gives the original flavor some good competition for best sauce.

TSR: What are your thoughts on the new briquets, and do you use your grill year round?

MG: I have a fairly busy schedule with “Mike & Mike in the Morning,” ESPN analysis, and my family, but I definitely try to keep my grill fired up year-round whenever I have down-time. There is no better way to bring family and friends together than over the smokey flavors of a charcoal grill. In fact, when my boys where in high school, I used to travel to their football camps in early-August and grill for their entire teams during two-a-day workouts.

Kingsford MatchLight is my go-to charcoal – it has lighter fluid built into the briquet formula so it lights quickly and easily – which is especially convenient when I’m tailgating. I’ve heard that Kingsford briquets now light easier and faster, which I can also appreciate since I’m always crunched for time with my busy schedule.

TSR: Do you have any go-to items you like to grill for Super Bowl Sunday, or are you usually too busy working to cook that day?

MG: I will be working the whole week leading up to Super Bowl in Miami, but I’m excited to be able to go home and watch the actual game with my friends and family. But, while I’m in Miami, I will be firing up the grill with my buddy, world champion pitmaster, Chris Lilly earlier in the week. Chris has taught me quite a bit about grilling over the years and has inspired me to create a few tailgate recipes of my own. I will be demonstrating my BBQ Blitz Chicken Wraps for a few TV interviews with Chris before sharing a little tailgate with the lucky winner of the “On the Grill with Golic” sweepstakes that took place earlier this year. The recipe is attached in case your readers want to try it at home. For more great grilling recipes become a fan of Kingsford on Facebook at Facebook.com/KingsfordCharcoal.

LeBron James takes one from Dwyane Wade

Last night’s battle between LeBron James and Dwyane Wade turned into a classic, as both men put on quite a show. LeBron got the last laugh as he stole the ball from Wade at the end to give the Cavs the road victory. Brian Windhorst of the Plain Dealer summed it up well.

If the league really wants to get high ratings over All-Star Weekend, it should scrap the Slam Dunk Contest and just have LeBron James and Dwyane Wade play 1-on-1.

If not, they could just show a replay of Monday night when James and Wade added another chapter to their already strong rivalry. In the first half they started a “anything you can do, I can do better” campaign at the offensive end, a few precious minutes that are sure to be some of the most memorable played in the NBA this season.

Then, as a contrast, they flipped it over to the defensive end in the second half, each attempting to one-up the other until the very end.

Finally, it took a collision and a last-second shot to settle it. James came out on the winning end of both. Therefore, the Cavs escaped AmericanAirlines Arena with a 92-91 victory over Wade’s Miami Heat (23-21).

The Cavs have been on quite a roll, and they are again staking their claim as the best team in the NBA. But we all know little matters until they meet Boston or Orlando in the playoffs. Is this LeBron’s year?
