The Justice Department has ended its criminal case against Barry Bonds.

That was delicious. I read every comment.

Rust belt? Never heard of it!

What's the over/under on fouls to Jordan by the Mavs in the first regular season meeting? 10? 15?

I'm hoping for the over. A full game of Hack-a-DJ sounds like the perfect petty revenge in this case.

Zach Lowe's NBA Free-Agency Winners and Losers

The Clippers were already the most hated team in the league, I can't imagine this is going help matters. What do the Mavericks do now? What a disaster. Could teams use this to their advantage? If you have a free agent that you know is solid in staying could you send him out to commit to a conference rival only to have "second thoughts" and utterly ruin a franchise's free agency designs.

Zach Lowe's NBA Free-Agency Winners and Losers

The Knicks situation is interesting, and doubly so when your rooting interest holds a 2016 pick swap with them. Lowe seems to think they have a chance to be decent but I don't see how they are going to compete even in the weak East. They won't be able to stop anybody and I have a hard time believing that a group of strangers is going to progress up the learning curve of the triangle fast enough to get anywhere near a top ten offense. Now add in Melo coming off an injury (or possibly pouting) and Fisher having yet to prove that he's a competent coach and I think that situation could go really poorly.

Golden State Warriors Win NBA Title

Iggy wins the MVP because the Cavs ignore him on defense for the entire series. Warriors minus Iggy have a tough time in this series, the Warriors without Curry aren't even recognizable.

Great series. I was hoping James could pull it off just for how crazy the story would have been.

I'd watch that, but only if they pronounce GIFs correctly.

Warriors Win Game 5, Need One More for NBA Championship

I think we should be grateful that LeBron James doesn't play the cynical draw a foul game that James Harden does. LeBron had only 9 free throws in a game where he went to the rim constantly against very physical defense. If he wanted to accentuate the contact he was getting we'd be in for a much less watchable game. Though, if he was a better free throw shooter maybe he would be more interested in drawing fouls. Whatever the reason, I'm glad we don't see a parade to the stripe.

Warriors Win Game 5, Need One More for NBA Championship

I do not understand playing Mozgov for 9 minutes last night

If you have a stiff at center, sure, try going small. Mozgov has been the only dependable Cavalier out there so it's surprising to me that they decided to limit his minutes. It seems like an overreaction to Iguodala making shots last game. I'd let Iguodala shoot because if he misses his first couple he gets really tentative about shooting threes and then he becomes a liability in the half court.

On the other side of the ball, I think they need to put Curry in some PnR. Whoever Curry is guarding is the screen man and make Curry have to deal with LeBron coming off a screen.

Golden State Exposes Cleveland in Game 4 Rout

That and the fact they got entirely away from his post game

I thought Golden State did a lot better job denying post entry. It felt dangerous and a lot of effort to get the ball where he wanted it and even then they would often be left with little time on the shot clock.

The supporting cast, sans Mozgov, was horrible last night. Just abysmal. Shumpert doesn't want to shoot anymore. JR couldn't hit anything. JR is great right up to the point that you need him to be great, I've been being disapointed by JR for nearly a decade now.The fact that James Jones is getting minutes in the finals is utterly absurd.

LeBron James Puts Cavaliers Up 2-1 on Warriors

As good as the story is, I feel like the Warriors are one great stretch from restoring order to the universe. They'll hang 20 in a row on the Cavaliers to make a game a laugher and Stella will get her groove back.

I agree but I felt that way after games one and two as well. I'm starting to waiver on if it will come or come in time.

Whatever happens from here on out, this is going to be a memorable series. Either the series goes long or the Cavaliers pull a monumental upset. Even if the Warriors blow their doors off for three straight we'll remember the first three games stretch out of LeBron.
