There were a lot of big discussions this week, and it was difficult to choose only three. So you get an extra one this week!
They did it! After waiting a long 45 years, the LA Kings have clinched the Stanley Cup. Here's a team that, very early this year was practically on nobody's radar. Then they started winning a lot of games and that got people interested. The Kings' ascension has shined an even more powerful spotlight on Los Angeles, as the city of the stars is usually only well known for the Lakers. Will the Kings make LA a sports haven to rival some of those on the east coast? I guess we'll have to wait until next year to find out.
How long will it be until we're asking, "Who shot John Ross?" The classic TV drama Dallas is back after 21 years off the air. The show, a continuation of the old one, centers around J.R. and Bobby's sons, John Ross and Christopher, and promises to re-ignite the old family rivalry that made the original series popular. J.R. and Bobby are also back, and played by their original actors.
Lance Armstrong is in the news again, and not for anything good. The seven-time winner of the Tour de France risks having every one of the titles stripped from him and being banned from cycling if it is proven that blood samples from 2009 and 2010 show evidence of doping. Armstrong denies the allegations, and is currently trying to clear his name.
Should the ref have called a foul on LeBron James? That's the mini-controversy to come out of last night's Oklahoma City Thunder-Miami Heat game. The lack of a whistle from the officials, as expected by Kevin Durant of the Thunder, robbed the team of a chance to tie up the score at the free-throw line. In the end, the Heat won, 100-96. Check out more of our coverage on the final series: Game 1; Game 2.
That's it. Have a good weekend, everybody!
