- Twice as Nice in Miami: Last Thursday, the Heat closed out a hard-fought 7-game series with the San Antonio Spurs to win their second-consecutive Larry O'Brien Trophy. How did LeBron and company manage to pull it off? Hear our take.

- A Stanley Cup For the Windy City: Trailing 2-1 late in Game 6, the Blackhawks pulled off an improbable rally Monday night, scoring two goals in the final 1:16 of regulation to win 3-2 and secure the fifth Stanley Cup in the history of the franchise. What adjustments did Chicago make late in the series to swing the momentum in their favor, and what mistakes did the Bruins make that ultimately led to their demise? We break it down.

- Trouble For New England's Rainmaker: Last Tuesday, the body of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd was found less than a mile from the residence of NFL tight end Aaron Hernandez, who has been at the center of a police murder investigation ever since. We review the timeline of events over the course of the last week, and discuss how Hernandez could have possibly put himself in this type of situation to begin with.


We decide if the recently streaking Toronto Blue Jays are now serious playoff contenders in the AL East, and if the Los Angeles Clippers will be better next season with Doc Rivers at the controls!
