When you've been there, done that. In a lackluster NBA finals, the Golden State Warriors swept the Cleveland Cavaliers to win their third championship in four years. After the series, it came out that Cavs’ LeBron James played the last three games of the series with a hand injury from punching a white board after their game one overtime loss. The Warriors may have won but the focus is now on King James’ impending free agency and where he’ll play next season. THE ODDS
On Saturday, Justify became only the 13th horse in history to win the Triple Crown (the Kentucky Derby, Belmont Stakes and Preakness Stakes). Justify's trainer Bob Baffert had the same good luck charm, the Burger King, present at this race as he did when his last horse, American Pharaoh, won the Triple Crown. The creepy mascot may have been lucky but there’s also some controversy around another horse that Baffert trains running interference for Justify to retain the lead for the win. KING ME

The Washington Capitals claimed their first NHL (National Hockey League) title in the franchise’s 44-year history and they’re celebrating enough for the 44 years of pent up frustration. The team and their new friend, the Stanley Cup, have gone from the Vegas clubs, to a drinking tour of D.C. with party buses, tattoos and swimming in a fountain, to beers in a suite at the Washington Nationals game (MLB – Major League Baseball), to The Tonight Show this evening and somehow they're going to make it to the championship parade tomorrow. Their livers are the true champions in this story.WHERE IN THE BAR IS THE STANLEY CUP?
