LeBron James First Player to Average a Triple Double in NBA Finals Cleveland Cavs Golden State Warriors 2017 28 points 29 39 41 31 FIRST PLAYER NBA FINALS SERIES HISTORY FACTS ESPN FOX SPORTS NEWS record Michael Jordan

I am a Michael Jordan fan but I’m continuing to sway towards LeBron James as he continues to prove himself playing against teams like the Golden State Warriors.

Well, I’d disagree and say things are only heating up. I’ll do a post comparing the two now that the season is over but one key difference between LeBron James and…

DEE-1 “the UnDefeated” Theme Song Official Music Video / The Undefeated Website Brought to you by ESPN

I love this. I have so much respect for the brother Dee-1, so it was especially dope to see this premiere on ESPN. Then as I looked into it, theundefeated.com is actually owned by ESPN, which should drastically help this video and the actual website with getting more exposure. The Undefeated site will help to explore the intersection of race, sports and culture, which doesn’t happen enough so I’m glad to see that ESPN is making an effort to create some traction in this area.

Keeping Your Eyes on the Prize and Giving it Your All/ UFC Fighter Kongo Won’t Stay Down – Video

Feel like you got knocked down and need some motivation, well look no further. This UFC fighter, Cheick Kongo, is a great example and inspiration of taking a hit and getting back up.

Man Builds Small Home for Homeless Women (Video) / Share The Good

Freddie Gray is the most recent black American to have his life taken at that hands of a police officer. Justice needs to be served. And the continued misrepresentations of the black community within the media doesn’t help. Only showing images of young black men rioting and acting like thugs, is what the media does best, we all know that. And of course they fail to focus on the young black men and women that were peacefully protesting. But there are many articles and videos out there that touch on…

Push It To The Limit, On And Off The Track / Oregon University Track and Field Runner Celebrates Too Early and Loses (Video)

Simply put, I love this video. Not only is this a lesson for track athletes, but this is also a life lesson. From the jump, in Track101 you learn to run through the finish line- so I don’t know what Tanguy Pepiot of the University of Oregon was doing?!? Probably watching Usian Bolt way too much lol. Runner Space interviewed Pepiot after the race… “I thought I was by my self, like, far in front of the second guy,” Pepiot said. “I saw [Simon] on the screen, I tried to pick up, he…
