Cavs v Dubs finals. First time same teams have reached the finals three years in a row. Both have breezed through, finals should be closer. Dubs in six.

Cavs stop Dubs having perfect playoff record. Surely they can't come back from 3 down?

I was in Cleveland during the finals two years ago. I tried to get a ticket but was unable to.

Chris Paul traded from the Clippers to the Rockets. Not sure how it'll work with him and James Harden in the same team. Rumours that they're also trying to add Paul George.

Chicago Bulls forward Bobby Portis has been suspended for eight games for breaking team-mate Nikola Mirotic's jaw when he punched him during practice.

Are the Chicago Bulls the Newcastle Utd of the NBA ?

Greatest upset in Men's College Basketball. The first time that a Number 1 seed has been defeated by a Number 16 seat in the NCAA Tournament

Warriors beat Cavs again, this time with a sweep.

I've been following the playoffs through reddit quite a bit and I find the narrative of "Durant broke the league" quite interesting. There seems to be a distinct lack of respect for a great player joining a great team and being great. He should have tried to build a franchise somewhere himself seems to be the consensus.

Be interesting to see where LeBron goes next. Will he try the West?

That's the strange thing about the NBA, more credit is given to a great player winning with the aid of a squad of journeymen players that to team building, either through the draft or by selecting the right free agents.

As for LeBron, he could try the Lakers

2019 Men's NCAA Bracket

http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/tournament/bracket

Great to see Farleigh Dickenson (aka Fairly Ridiculous) in the tournament because that's the alma mater of one of my best Colonial mates.

They're in one of the 'play-in' games, so they might get at least two games in the competition, albeit the second would be an annihilation by Gonzaga
