IT’S ONLY LeBRON AGAIN

By Marc Lawrence — LeBron James will be playing against the team he helped win a pair of championships. This scenario will get heavy airplay in the build-up, as it should; LeBron was a solid favorite to return to the championship round once the Lakers got Anthony Davis, while the Heat make for a surprise guest. The Lakers bring a pair of All-NBA first-team members while Miami hasn’t had anyone on that level since … LeBron left town, six summers ago. So it’s the Lakers Big Two versus Miami’s Jimmy Butler and it’s young shooters. The LeBron-AD tag-team is awfully difficult to defend or stop. Miami must be the bully almost every minute of every game. With it LeBron can hear his legacy calling and he’s about to answer. To read more on this preview of the NBA Finals from NBA.com click here.

The long-awaited MLB playoffs are finally underway and the questions begs… Can anyone overthrow the Los Angeles Dodgers and win this year’s World Series. My calculated guess is yes. With a 16-team field it’s important to remember that the Dodgers best pitcher (Walker Buehler) has the worst ERA in the rotation. Yes, their .717 winning percentage is the best in baseball since Cleveland went 111-43 in 1954 – and you saw what happened to them. Dodger Blue hasn’t won a World Series since 1988. The pressure is squarely on them to do so this year. I love fading pressurized teams.
