The Things We Learn In Sports June 6th -June 13th

This week in sports stars history on the tracks of New York. American Pharoah was able to complete the Triple Crown this past Saturday and gave horse racing a shot in the arm. American Pharoah was the first horse to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and the Belmont, since Affirmed in 1978. With history as the main player, these are the things we learn in sports.

7. Dez wants to get paid.

Dez Bryant for the Dallas Cowboys is considering skipping the start of the season if he doesn’t receive a contract extension. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen   reports that Byrant, 26, is considering skipping game 1 against the New York Giants to prove his point. Bryant had the franchise tag placed on him during the off season. Bryant can receive a long term deal only until July 15. Micheal Silver of NFL.com can confirm that this isn’t a rumor.

Mortensen noted Bryant has not signed his franchise-tag deal that guarantees him $12.8 million. Bryant’s agent, Tom Condon, said, “Our goal is still to get something done on a long-term basis by the deadline.” Bryant is coming off a Pro Bowl season, and expectations are high for Dallas. Dallas can’t afford for Bryant to not be on the field at any point this season.

6. Kanye West doing Kanye West things at the NBA Finals.

Kanye West  try’s to takes some shine away from the NBA Finals as he pretends to be an NBA player and answer questions. O you mad Huh? It now you move Riley Curry.

5. Will the Real J.R. Smith please sit down

JR Smith
JR Smith

Cleveland Cavilers guard  J.R. Smith is having a terrible NBA finals, or as he would put it, he played like Horse Sh*t. He missed 10 of his 12 shots, and became the first player in finals history to go 0-8 from three. His problems in the big moment are one of the reasons he was packaged with Iman Shumpert in the deal that sent both of them to Cleveland. Smith has always had the ability to get hot at the dribble of the ball, and if he want Cleveland to win a title, he will have to start heating up.

4. Hey Ladies, USA Women’s National team seek a World Title.

 USWNT-WWC-roster-2015

The United States remained unbeaten at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup after playing out a scoreless draw against Sweden and former coach Pia Sundhage on Friday night in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The women’s team wants to bring back home the title for the first time since 1999. Even with the problems that surround goalie Hope Solo, the team is still poised to be the best in the world.

3. 27 up and 27 down, Pitcher Chris Heston throws no-hitter against the Mets

San Francisco Giants’ pitcher Chris Heston threw the first no-hitter of the season against the New York Mets. Bleacher Reports’ Jacob Shafer writers that after Heston’s masterful 11-strikeout performance against the New York Mets on June 9, he became the first Giants rookie to throw a no-no since Jeff Tesreau in 1912. Not a bad way to begin your career in the MLB.

2. Riley Curry getting this work even when she’s sleeping

There will be at least one more game played in Oracle Arena as the series between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers is tied at 2 games apiece. Riley Curry has really been the star of the playoffs since her arrival on the scene in the Western Conference Finals, but she has been a no show since the star of the NBA finals, until now. Steph Curry’s wife, Ayesha Curry decided to troll the Cavalier fans by posting this picture of Riley on instagram.

1. Run, Run, Run

American Pharoah has won the Triple Crown something that  hasn’t been accomplished since 1978. Racing has clearly taking a backseat to every single sport that is played in America, but a win like this might jump start the sport once again. David Hill of The New Yorker explains how racing use to be the main sport in this country.

“For more than twenty years after the Second World War, horse racing led all American sports in attendance figures. In 1973, the year that Secretariat won the Triple Crown after a twenty-five-year drought, attendance at North American race tracks topped seventy-six million. (By comparison, the combined attendance for American League and National League baseball that year was just over thirty million, a high-water mark for that sport.) Attendance at race tracks has since plummeted to a small fraction of those numbers. (Hill)”

But it seems that if a star can be born within the sport, then eyes will go to the screen. If that happens then Horse Racing has a heart beat once again.

Historical moments in sports have transpired over the past couple of days as you had to be glued in front of your television to experience it live. #SportsTwitter was all the way turned up as the premiere best of the best gave another reminder to fans of why he’s capable of strongly being considered the G.O.A.T. to ever lace up a pair of basketball sneakers. A seasoned vet to the tennis game continues to add on to her legacy amongst the all time greats while another rare Triple Crown feat has been conquered and it did not happened in the sport of baseball. The Source Sports’ own Omari White was able to become a witness of these moments of epic proportions and he took valuable time out to explain why him and all the fans worldwide had every reason to get their Daniel Bryan on and scream out YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!

Game 2 Of The NBA Finals (Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors)

Game 2 of this highly unpredictable NBA Finals can be looked at as a turning point of what maybe considered as the beginning of a bright light shining through the door of greatness the Cavs can walk through. It seemed like everything was going right for Cleveland as they was able to make tough plays and stops without their All Star point guard Kyrie Irving. Shumpert and Smith showed glimpse of why they are a part of this finals run as they made some clutch 3’s towards the end of the game. Mazgov was able to take full advantage of times when the Warriors went small. Matthew Dellavedova is slowly developing into a reliable defender, as he was able to hold Steph Curry to 5 for 23 shooting. Meanwhile, he was able to be a play maker during crunch time, grabbing a outstanding rebound and showing he has ice in his veins by knocking down two clutch free throws. Lastly, the King himself formerly known as LeBron James gave another masterpiece performance as he was able to go for another triple double, 39 points, 16 rebounds and 11 assists. Granted, he may be the most disliked hooper in the league but you got to give credit where credit is due. Being sworn and hacked by Andre Iguodala, Draymond Green, and Harrison Barnes and referees missing foul calls, James was able to play through the physicality. Bron Bron was able to show fans that he was able to learn how to be a more clutch player during crunch time thanks to his previous NBA Finals experience at Miami. This is something essential everyone has been looking for in James as the entire sports world all knows he literally is fighting for his life to add some major resume worthy performances to his legacy and a spot of the Mt. Rushmore of basketball greats. Through three games, LeBron scored a total of 123 points, the most by anyone in NBA Finals history. The King is on a entirely different level by attempting to prove the sports fans that Meek Mill is accurate when he said it’s “levels to this shhhh”. The king is on the rise of becoming the immortal one, watch out Golden State.
