It ain't bragging when you can back it up, and with Cavaliers superstar LeBron James' otherworldly NBA Finals numbers of 37 points, 12 rebounds and 9 assists, what more is there to say?
And so, even with his team down, 3-2, and on the brink of elimination, who's really going to argue when James boldly declares he's still the best the game has to offer?
Besides, regular-season MVP Stephen Curry and his Golden State Warriors will gladly cede King James that distinction for the right to hoist the franchise's first Larry O'Brien title in more than four decades.
Quicken Loans Arena will be rocking come Tuesday night when the two teams collide before what's almost certain to be an overflow crowd that will be ready to pull out all the stops in aiding the host Cavs in trying to extend the series to a winner take-all Game 7. Game 6 tickets' average prices at the moment are $670.01, with a get-in price of $264*.

This upcoming weekend will be one of the busiest in 2015 in terms of sports. There’s the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao bout, NBA playoffs, NHL playoffs, and Red Sox vs. Yankees. But there’s one sporting event being overlooked; the Kentucky Derby.
Coined as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports,” the 141st Kentucky Derby is gearing up to be a great one. While two of the 20 horses competing in the race at Churchill Downs have been yielding the most attention, this year’s entire lineup is one of the deepest seen in years according to Odds Shark.
The 2014 World Series began last night with Game 1 in Kansas City. After just five batters, the Giants already had a 3-0 lead and never looked back, taking a one game to none lead in the series. For the Royals, losing the first game of the World Series hurt, but would losing Game 2 be the death-blow to their chances of being crowned champions?
Yes - Game 2 is a must-win for the Royals
No one wants to lose the first two games of a postseason series, but losing them on your home field hurts even more. The Royals have the home-field advantage in the series thanks to the American League's win in this season's All-Star Game (a ridiculous reason, but that's a discussion for a different day), and if they lose Game 2, that will completely blow a great opportunity. San Francisco's AT&T Stadium is one of the toughest stadiums to play in for a road team in Major League Baseball, and winning at least two games there would be a tough task.
Since the league went to the 2-3-2 format for the World Series, there have been 13 teams that lost the first two games of the series at home. Of those teams, eight of them ended up getting swept and only three ended up going on to win the series.
If you hadn't noticed, the NHL dropped the puck on its 2014 preseason schedule this week with games beginning last Sunday. It's the time of year that hockey fans have been waiting for since the Los Angeles Kings lifted the Stanley Cup last June. In celebration of the start of the preseason, I thought it would be nice to watch the Top 10 plays of last season with the help of the good folks at "SportsCentre." Yes, "SportCentre" - the Canadian version of ESPN's "SportsCenter." With them being a show from Canada, I'm going to trust their judgement on these.
Any plays they missed?
