Is it safe to say this one is probably over now?

NBA: Finals-Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

After Wednesday night’s 118-113 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Golden State Warriors are just one victory away from a clean sweep of the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

The Sixers worked out six players on Wednesday

The group was highlighted by a pair of Oregon Ducks and St. Joe’s Prep’s own Steve Vasturia.

There’s another great commercial featuring Kobe Bryant and Jalen Rose

I think this one is much funnier than the 81 olives bit they released the other day. The commercial aired during Rose’s new scripted show, Jalen vs. Everybody, on ESPN.

Josh Jackson’s agent spoke about the Sixers

Zach Gelb of 920 The Jersey had an extensive conversation with Josh Jackson’s agent, B.J. Armstrong. Among the topics discussed were Jackson’s potential landing in Philadel
