- NBA Championship Series Preview: The Miami Heat punched their ticket to their third-consecutive trip to the NBA Finals on Monday night, wrapping up a hard-fought 7-game series with the Indiana Pacers. Awaiting the Heat is a veteran-laced San Antonio Spurs squad who will have had nearly 10 days off by the time Game 1 tips off Thursday. What are the keys to success in this series for both clubs, and who will ultimately walk away with the Larry O'Brien Trophy? We'll tell you.

- Stanley Cup Playoff Talk: The race for Lord Stanley's Cup in down to four teams, with the Blackhawks, Kings, Penguins and Bruins battling it out in the conference finals. Can Los Angeles and Pittsburgh rally from 0-2 deficits? Of the four teams remaining, which is playing the best hockey right now? Who will meet in the Finals? Hear our take.

- Analyzing Mayweather-Alvarez: Last week, Floyd "Money" Mayweather announced that the second bout in his six-fight deal with Showtime would be against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, who is unbeaten in 43 professional contests. Was this the right decision on Mayweather's part, and is Alvarez the man that will finally put an end to Floyd's reign as boxing's best pound-for-pound fighter? We break it down.


We discuss Gordon Gee's statements in regards to the SEC, Louisville, and the University of Notre Dame, and examine the likelihood of Grant Hill eventually being named to the Hall of Fame!

All this and much more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
