For the second consecutive season the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers will meet in the NBA Finals.

Golden State beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 96-88 in game seven of the Western Conference Finals. Golden State found themselves down 3-1 but we're able to remain calm and eliminate the Thunder.

Clay Thompson and Steph Curry kept the Warrior fans hopes alive with great 3 point shooting.

Now they face a very good Cleveland team led by LeBron James.  Things will be different than last season with Irving and Love being healthy this season.

This should be a good series and a fun one to watch.  I'm taking Golden State in 6.

The past few weeks have been focused on the graduate in our lives.  You have heard many stories of students overcoming the odds to earn a high school diploma.

Well I too have a story for you.  This story is about a young man that was always told he was too small to play football.  J.J. Lyons proved the naysayers wrong by starting on varsity all four years while in high school.

On May 18, 2016 he graduated from Copper Canyon High School and is now headed to Kansan to play at MidAmerica Nazarene.  I had the privilege to attend a dinner to celebrate his graduation.

The dinner was amazing.  The food was great and the family of J.J. Lyons was even better.  While my wife and I sat eating our dinner I realized something.  Lyons was where he today not just because of his out effort, but the effort of his parents, John and Malinda.

J.J. will be a success on and off the field and he is living proof that with family support and if you set your mind to it, it can be achieved.

The Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Golden State Warriors 108-102 in game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.  The game was played in Oakland and many people expected a different outcome.

The Thunder were led by Russell Westbrook, who had 27 points and 12 assists.  OKC came out with the win despite shooting just 35% in the final quarter.

The big problem for Golden State was their shooting.  They are usually a throw any shot up and it goes in team, but this time that did not work for them.  Steph Curry,despite having 26 points shot just 9-22 from the field.

Golden State should be able to bounce back in game 2 so brace yourself for an incredible series ahead of us.

Phoenix fighter Joey "The Boxer" Ruelas will fight in Vegas this Saturday against John Vera Jr. for the vacant WBA-NBA USA Super Welter Weight Championship.  The fight is scheduled for Saturday night in Las Vegas.

This is a big opportunity for Ruelas to showcase his talent.  The fight will be televised by CBS Sports Network.

Ruelas is 10-1-1 and faces an undefeated opponent in Vera, 13-0.  This should be a great contest between two up and coming fighters.

Ruelas has proved he can fight through adversity, he has won his last two fights after suffering his only loss.  He is arguably Vera's toughest opponent to date.

I give the edge to Ruelas in this fight because of his mental toughness.  He will bring the title home to Arizona!
