The San Antonio Spurs beat the Miami Heat 4-1 to win the NBA championship.: Amidst all the drama (and great basketball) in the early rounds of the playoffs we were left with a repeat of 2013, Spurs versus the Heat. However, this year the results were markedly different as the Spurs dominated the last 3 games of the series in an unquestionable way. Kawhi Leonard is my new hero; a young man whose father was murdered 6 years ago and on Father's Day carried his team to a championship and won the MVP award. Oh, and he doesn't really want to talk to the press.

There are buzzer beaters and then there are BUZZER BEATERS: In the New York Section 1 AA championship game New Rochelle was on a 9-1 run but still behind by 2 points. Only 2.9 seconds left on the clock and they have to take out the ball on the opposite side of the court. The long lob down the floor was picked off by the opposing Mount Vernon, things didn't look good until Khalil Edney had something to say about it.

Boston Red Sox off to worst start since World War II: This might not be such a big deal but it comes after an off-season where the team owners came in third in the league for payroll ($160 million). Some of that hefty payroll is heading into prize free agents Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford's pockets. These two additions led many to anoint the Sox as favorites to win 100 games and/or the World Series. So are they feeling the pressure? Are their high paid pitchers too fat and happy? Or maybe they just need a boost from good old Fenway Park where they have their first home game of the season on Friday against old pals: the New York Yankees.

Dock Ellis & the LSD No No: Somewhere in the archives of Sportsfilter must be some mention of June 1970 when Dock Ellis threw a no-hitter while under the influence of LSD. Even if you know the story, this is a great 4:30 animated recounting of the feat.

Rasheed Wallace wants to be a team player in Boston next season.: In what will be an interesting test of chemistry, the Celtics will have Rasheed Wallace on the floor for them next season. Does this create a Fantastic Four? A permanent sub for Kevin Garnett? What is undeniable are the stats. The Celts had two of the top 30 3-point shooters last season (House and Allen), a top 20 scoring leader (Pierce) a top 20 rebounder (Garnett when he's healthy) a top 10 assist and steals leader (Rondo). So how will Wallace fit in? His famous temper aside, is his body simply breaking down, and is this why the Celts could get him for roughly $8mil less than his last year in Detroit?

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

I haven't paid much attention to either SF or KC until now,but last night's game was anything but dramatic.

LeBron Taking His Talents Out of South Beach

Yeah, seems like an obvious pressure move to get Miami to do something meaningful. In addition to the endorsements mentioned above, the sale of Beats to Apple apparently delivered $30 mil on his doorstep.

Game is starting to have the feel of the inevitable, SD would do well to get some points on the board before halftime.

Red Sox Even World Series at 2

Ooh, ooh. Just one more scenario, I think this one would be pretty amazing, honestly.

Game ends on hidden ball trick.

Like this. Oh and with Matt Carpenter of St. Louis as the victim, no less.

Red Sox Even World Series at 2

Can I add my scenario to the strange ending pool?

I would have to say this falls into the "Would Suck" category, but we need an option for "Player forgets to touch home base after hitting a home run".

If we were being extra nasty, this could happen during extra innings on a walk-off homer.

Red Sox Take Game 1 Over Cards

I dunno, I think the first conspiracy was that Wainwright and Molina clearly have been paid off. How else to explain this:

You need to do a mashup between that Gif and the Mark Sanchez butt fumble.

Celtics Hire Brad Stevens as Head Coach

I think the only sure fire "win" here is the Boston sports media. Assuming Rondo stays, his relationship with Stevens will take place in a spotlight tracking their every move. It's already being set up. The headline in the Globe today was "Rondo has 'open mind' on Stevens". This of course was from a "reliable source" not a direct quote. As noted above, the star player culture of the NBA is deep.
