WGR Sports Radio 550. You're going to triple ninety. I'm 52 seconds remaining. And Iguodala is bound to Hillary's side stepped up pretty fired. You're missing rebound controlled and tip my faith 12 left baseball fan. I think we've. 8389. Haves are the world champion. We've written so let that person these last years. I just knew restatement will be a bit down 31. Of course the greatest regular syndicated. Also victory in nine and everybody count myself as best we strive polls when everybody count us out the best government announced profitable for everybody on the. Best player on the planet right there as you can see with the final of the beating he took us home tonight. That's when he does that's a great players do and the latest in an abrupt. I'm sure yesterday's newspaper and the demise real answers from different so the degree tomorrow come on come home. From all arsenals are doing this we learn from would've liked to Wear this issue last year was that they may have the best very astute team history. And learn. Well. We get back possessions. He's not even the Mets getting swept by the brave thing. And even bother me at all. Very happy for Cleveland sports fans that I as they said it when Harry met Sally I'll have what they're having a pair phrase that a little bit. Very happy for Cleveland sports fans great series for LeBron. I couldn't get the sleep last night I was so pumped up I felt so good for the folks in Cleveland. I the we have one problem now there's a problem about feeling good for we have the longest drought no luck and that's part of it but no. Are you going to miss. Brown's fans. They all like the cavs are. They don't get to beat. The sad sack woe is us factory of sadness that kid a whole horrible pull for us now no I won't. But right now and we've been we I I was thinking last night as I watched. Sports editor at 1130 last night in their live in Cleveland if the bills are in position to win the Super Bowl at the sabres are in position to win the cup but it's a road game. Is ESP enliven downtown buffalo and John which grunt despite being mad I didn't probably not. And on the gets his big deal is LeBron bringing about a back to Cleveland so probably not. But whatever bat I add on and a very good place cut by his. Gonna miss those fans. If the browns haven't won anything it doesn't matter they go 0116 owns gonna care if they lose in the colossal fashion like here. Baltimore kick return touchdown on the final play of like. Yeah that it but LeBron I mean they're fine they're not that upset any more than not a lottery that for about ten years bomb probably point you know you probably right. Ray Rangers won a cup in 94 and I don't know that carried for a long time and probably does. It really does it it makes up for anything else that's going on with your other teams were. I mean the Mets lost to the World Series in 2000 mean it was you know it just it carries for a long long time. But still. It's great for that I. Ice I can't tie how much from them from waking up yesterday morning I just could not get Cleveland sports fans out of my head. And lots. And what what they're feeling what the day was like. Was it like waking up the morning of one of the soup bowls in the early ninety's how you felt during the day how you felt leading up to the game I felt during the game. Caps go up seven in the third quarter I'm thinking our Cleveland sports fans. Enjoying it are they sitting there OK what painful way every gonna blow this game to lose this championship. I I just. I just kept thinking about them and us and them and odds and Irving hit the three and I still don't think they're gonna win the basket blog I like it when they're gonna find a way to the break the hearts of their fans and when. You know the Golden State Warriors missed at the end and states grabbed the rebound as 12 left right. Despite couldn't believe Cleveland actually won the game early and then I did not think they're going to whip I thought Golden State would win I thought Korean Thompson would go off. And it and the warriors would like run away with this game last. There are some. Sites that I've month hold. During a game you can see with the lines. And I checked with the batting line is when the cavs were down eight. It looked taste Eagles they was little run together there I thought. Cleveland was never out of it I it's I don't say I thought they were gonna win the whole time it just looked like the warriors. For whatever reason. This whole series. They really didn't look like the team they were all year long and that's a credit to the cavs who played great defense against them but they missed open looks it's a make or miss league. And the click through look at the three pointers throughout the game the warriors attempted 41. Did hit it in the in the first half they were about 50% yes. In the second half in the hit and miss all the in the Heatley couldn't and anything. And the cavs by contrast missed all of theirs in the first half. They hit six overall. You can count them and remember them Golden State went because I wrote down halftime stat from three point range is gold stay with Tenet when he won. Cleveland was one of fourteen so 55 point 45 of twenty. They went fifty or carry 158 but went five for one on the for a second half and LeBron. The game turns game seven turns three and one series. Why is fest this is Healy back in the game it best this product it's a huge loss for them to be without Bogut. You know green in his view lead down low are decent and protectors greens and the bass is healing goes back in the game and they called it out on the broadcast. The cavs get is Helio and LeBron and then LeBron pump fakes and gets is deleted jump. That's this is really thinking it's gonna do block LeBron outside the three point arc. That's three free throws and then maybe not the next trip but two trips later another three for LeBron. That moment that's where the cast came back was and that. Moment because that it became a tie game got right down to it and the warriors went ice cold down the stretch in school for the final 439. And the cavs. In all the credit to. LeBron. Tyreke Irving was incredible in the series absolutely growth for him in the series and last night's game was like oh. It feels like a two it's less than if it feels right LeBron was so good in this series after game two so good that. If it had been in a loss. He would have been the finals MVP the warriors would want to get the warriors when that game last night I think. There's that this empty feeling to people would not have been able to call them would have been. Eager to call them. The best team ever notice that while they got pushed to seven by the cavs and you know I don't know why I I just feel like it didn't look great if they were to win this game on home court the seventh game it just would have felt a little different from what I have whatever reason. I think it ends up the right Andy and LeBron was absolutely incredible on the structure it's. It's an amazing story we always talk about it in sports we're always looking for great stories they're sold many things that played out in this series. You know all of that for me the big picture Cleveland winning the championship battle that we're watching the highlights back. That's right thought oh my god imagine this for a curse and the way your team to find a way to lose when LeBron went to the slam dunk. And he hit the floor hard he's holding his right hand and they thinking hey this is a new one run gets hurt he leaves the game because he's injured. Golden State comes back to win the basketball game when LeBron goes down on the floor. Once once he made one of the free throw and he just didn't get to a four point exactly. But but I mean think about it for they win their title okay first title in 52 years they win their first NBA championship ever. They are the first team to come back with 31 deficit against the team that had the greatest regular season ever. They won two games in Golden State against the team that was almost unbeatable at home this year. LeBron last three games were just incredible and here's the Ohio native. I thought about one when they give them the trophy the chip to drove up the finals MVP. They handed him the trophy he's in tears in the first thing I thought about I'm sure this is not going through its head at that moment. But the first thing I thought about was a few years ago they were burning his jerseys in downtown Cleveland and hearing is. Just holding on to that trophy like he's never gonna let it go and I mean it's an amazing story that Ohio native. Leaves town are. Goes to Cleveland loses in the files leaps down comes back. It's been their first championship in 52 years and as you said stat of the day. Does something known as ever done down in history the NBA class knowing it's his balance our budget the heat let everybody. In points assists rebounds steals and blocks no players ever done that in any playoff series in league history. Well the return of the chase down block was there you mention the guys that probably burned his Jersey. I've got to comparison fours I thought about this and how it applies to us. It's also odd that they hand the owner Dan Gilbert the trophy. Daniel wrote that letter about LeBron I thought about that to go to Lou Erin were gonna win without you you to watch you know so the relationship. Certainly. A that's a huge part of the bronze. Legacy the story of his career I think about it this way. For Cleveland fans last night. You might have two years ago three years ago when he was coming back had Cleveland fans. Arguing with each other hey man you won a lot of good games you burned his Jersey you bailed on this guy. Is that. Anti tank conversation here tonight if there's people that will say hey if we win the Stanley Cup you're not allowed to be happy because you. Called everybody names you were real jerk about it in the the other person would say it rooted against George. If you had infighting among fans when the sabres went through the tank the idea being we all want to see him win a championship so when LeBron returns. Whether people are still bitter and said screw it I don't want him back he's past his prime I don't like him anymore he looked me I'll never forget you know. That you probably had some of that going on. And my guess is that by the time you get to this stage everybody's friends and they're doing just fine. I think all is forgiven. If if if we ever get to the point where the sabres win a Stanley Cup. I'm just gonna say is now publicly all welcome to celebrate I'm I guarding I'm all inclusive when it comes to a team winning a championship here. I couldn't even believe. Yeah I would never do that anybody did pay OK you can celebrate you can't you can't you can't you I mean attest. I wouldn't do that but it's hard not to think about that I I. The I thought about Dan Gilbert who you're right we do bring up the trophy ceremony and he got the trophy. It's hard not to think about you know what that hold the decision. And I'm going to South Beach and you know. They day at their burning jerseys tees you know public enemy number one in northeast Ohio. And now he comes back and get them a championship in. Crazy fashion you know against the team that was 73 and nine. And looked like. It was in great shape lead in the series three games to one right now Michael all the state didn't lose more than two games that are all season regular season playoffs. Gonna beat him three straight games. And he Italy as the 41 point game and has the great gaming game six at the triple double last night it was it's amazing. You know he's one of the game's greatest but yet you can still be. Amazed that a guy put on that kind of forms to the pressure he was armed. The bring a championship back to Cleveland I mean it's it's all on you know I mean. We Irving you're right had a great series JR Smith it's a big shots sure you know Tristan Thompson. In the capital of played well last night after you know doing nothing the last two games. About rock I mean if the appeal loses its popular two and five in the finals your own three with the cavs. It's all on him to bring a championship back to Cleveland. And to calm through and the way he did at the last three games in the weight played in this series. That's just that's an incredible story even for one of the game's greatest players to do. You want him play again next year in the finals these two teams the. And I think I I would make I'd sign up for the thing is. I mean the series. They said would note that with the closest game of the series the previous six game drop side by double digits in points but you wanted to set on that guy that's. Going into this that's going into game seven. Each team had scored the exact same number of the water yeah it's likely it editors if you don't in multiple ways and each team had exactly 610 points going into this final series are going into game seven. So seven games were played and the caps scored four more points. Or seven games now I get another stat I don't know if you guys saw the site I think I have this right I I saw a stat that said there was only. In the first six games there was only 14 quarter lead change. Now last night it was given at twenty lead changes in the whole game last night at army captain in the fourth quarter but. Last night's game the ratings for this are going to be outstanding right when last I guess people were watching if you were on Twitter or someone told you. Pay the games close it's the fourth quarter you know it's. I mean at high game with just a few minutes left in game seven of the NBA finals this is fantastic story line to play out last night ratings have been great. Magic number for that is thirty million. Can they get to thirty million from last night's game because that those of the numbers that the Jordan bulls used to put up against the jazz it was 29 million for. The final game where they where he won it with a child or Bob Byron Russell. They're a bit of a million stats out there. It's funny about championships though on how things are remember you do need to have breaks go your way yeah like dream I agree getting suspended here's my step forward. Full warriors team against the cats three in one. Minus either Bogut or grain all in three. A look at little luck LeBron is a great player. But I mean last night he hit jump shots his points came from driving to the basket and hit the late straight. If Bogut is in there. They're just they're not driving to the basket now saying I mean it just with you know I it's still LeBron I get it but there's a presence in the middle that was lacking for them and greens. You know I give dream angry credit meaning I watched some of his post game comments and he said. Blame me. Mean at that 31 they're in firm control he gets suspended for doing something stupid he should additional self control. That turned the series around that opened the door for Cleveland green missing game five which he very vague. And in game five that's when Bogut got hurt. And he could goggles it Iguodala had planned on as a lot of sad fact is like how do you take down a team that has the chance to be the best team of all time. While you have their MVP not shoot well through the entire series because you didn't know he might be hurt but. What are about trying to take anything away from Cleveland is it's it's true of every single championship last year's warriors part of the reason they want is because I re Irving gets hurt. We only got tiring in the first game of the finals last year like Kevin Love leading. That's not as big as they look imagine Irving not in this series of of of a round of LeBron could have done what he did they still wouldn't they a threat they would have won the third out of down the carrier. Look at LeBron mean it's. There's a lot of today there's a lot of this I hope all the people that say he's not any good finally goal way where are those people anyway. Right where are the it's skip Bayless. And that's that we've all except that skip Bayless is does this that his life its ultimate apparently this is a form go to making millions of dollars. I don't know I know people that don't like him and that's fine but they would never say these not any good. Or he's some kind of lose or or bomb they just say I don't like him I'm rooting for the other guy and hurting it. It's the same way that people over the course of the series started rooting against the warriors you know it's. Taken aside and a series where you don't necessarily have a dog in the fight is. That's what's worked as both to be about it's pretty fun you mentioned Kerry I'm waiting to see what comes out all you gotta go wasn't the same guys he's not good anymore now he. His one trick pony status has been established. And he won't be effective anymore. Now that the book is out as the effect that it alike on a playing a great team 82 games Nixie I'm just predicting what it which are gonna hear that now the cavs have given the script. This is how you defend curry he'll fade into obscurity you'll regarding. Not because will be nights next series playing the knicks or other teams in the league and you'll still have is thirty point to well but but clearly he knew he he and Thompson. Were just great month green is why Golden State was in the game last night he had. He was out of his Gordon the first step I kept waiting for curry and Thompson to just often just never happened. Well there's a lot of there's a lot them probably be reported after the fact. Is there an injury for curry do we ever find out exactly how he felt the the warriors worked five and all the more stats here I'm sorry five L against the cavs and thunder before curry got hurt in the playoffs. And then they went 77 against those two teams from five and now to seven and seven they speak is cavs team by 34 in Cleveland in the regular season. And that got David blatt fired. So. I think I guess like you look back and say we should take it easy on that day because that David plywood over the coaching. In a Chiron Lou is an NBA champion now. And that the storyline about. Teams ditching their coach and going on to win. It's a nice little story line one of the things about LeBron that is most fascinating about scorer but if you want the do a comparison to Michael Jordan and you mentioned that because of the penguins went in the car yes element. One of the things about. Jordan's career how many coaches that he play for. Phil Jackson. Right he had his his success it was Phil Jackson or his teammates and there are some that came in and came and went but Scottie Pippen with their four. All of it right. You had a brawl players coming in but he always had. USA which Graham was a heart artist grant right yup you had used earlier are right in spots guys on team. It great players you role players like Ron Harper. With Jordan one team one city one coach dominance they were great he left for two years they weren't great he comes back the great again. LeBron didn't do it that way LeBron showed up as the number one pick went to a team brought them out of the dregs of the league Q. A premier franchise left. Went in one with a different coach different teammates different city then comes back to Cleveland different coach he's got two coaches in the finals in two years. How many coaches to get the first Mike Brown right he got Mike round of the finals. In Mike brown and coach of the year I think this is it yes he did and this is not a LeBron is better than Jordan. Point here is just think of the differences there. LeBron took such ownership of his career took it from Cleveland to Miami and then given the choice to go anywhere took it back to Cleveland. Right he decides who the coaches he decides who they pursue when he goes there they trade wigand's away and they do it because LeBron says I want that player. So the level of control abroad has had on the ownership he's had over his career. That is a monstrous. Feather in his cap. It's it's also something that had they lost. You know you could taken to task contact yet you're the one giving coach is fired and players traded and you're the one wants to design this team around you. He did that and he came away with a win right that's why I think it's an amazing story even. Even you know when you maybe you'd maybe year and you don't think so when you talk about LeBron or Jordan or Gretzky of the you know the elite of the elite of the elite. So hot I mean New York you know we we sit here and talk about how we freak out. And we hold like each coach that comes by with the bills there's more pressure and each guy because they all inherit the previous guys drop. The GM the coach is. You know anything that goes wrong. It's ten years twelve years fourteen years sixteen years. All of frustrations and problems are all on the guy who's currently in the job like oh will blame the current GM for. Everybody's draft will blame the current head coach for all of the losing coaches that have been here. It's that's a lot of I mean this guys carrying. You know he LeBron imported at outlets not much in his interview with Scott van pelt last night. Any asked about you know winning for northeast Ohio and your LeBron starts rat and off despite our. John outweighs drive Jose Mesa in the ninth inning Greg below Lebanese through all the stuff from believe and basically. It's 52 years of all this stuff when he mention Jose Mesa that he say that he wears Yankee hats the Cleveland in it and I needed Mazie Yankee fan. I don't care and say that let me that's. You know so he's. The expectations are. Not only he's got to come back and when you went to Miami new one now you got to come back here and win for us. Plus make up for 52 years of nobody winning a championship in Cleveland Ohio. And now he probably doesn't leave. He may be was considering leaving again. Because he probably wants a win more titles that that's that's been a story what's gonna happen here he he can opt out and do whatever he wants and many speculated he'd go somewhere. And try to win maybe because. They do like the senate in Cleveland. I won it. They wiley you got these in east Michael out west you know you're going anywhere definitely have these he's you've carrier Irving who took the next step in the series for his career. Tweak your lineup and try to repeat. And the warriors expect them to be back right there what a great great overall year. For the NBA their owner that orders owner last rhetoric amounts that we're going to be aggressive this offseason good there so they're not what we're gonna chase Kevin Durant and why not needs birdies available. One quick text asking if will be talking basketball all morning. And I would say we're definitely going to reserve some time to yell at the US tomorrow like I. I the US I can't I don't get that the NHL was covering its eyes that old man this is awkward this is terrible.

I stepped away I was out running a couple of errands like came back and here's Joe Buck talked about this crazy controversy I noticed it. Like to exit polls. To have him explain to me and I looked at the tax I said what do you mean they're not telling us whether we write a stroke of. Why are not. Me right I turn it on right when the rules guy came on set and gave that explanation that's what I joined the final round coverage of an out of them.

Perhaps giving the cabs more statues to build their blog because of the block. Is the new Cleveland thing.

It has never get a nickname that's out of Hilo over you yes sir with the shot okay 'cause that you gotta have a nickname the Irving to drive the fumble.

The eyes of the Lehigh Valley they're home tonight 705 to open up the series. Where Louisville. Well the year oh hang on Steve Stamkos update Toronto sun Steve Simmons reports. Quote a lot of hockey people. Expect stamp goes to be traded in the next few days so a team can have a chance trying to work out a new contract for him. Bulls would be your sports had the next update coming up at 7 o'clock Twitter pull hook. I told our guys before a game listen there is a game B playbook. There's not many guys just nominee teams to get an opportunity to be an NBA finals in the game seven is just not and this is my second one and a neighbor says I've been victorious twice in game seven so it does sort of I don't take for granted the take for granted let's go out and you know of course that gave us a great plan. I was going to execute. This one endlessly more memorable than the game seven when they got against the spurs which. I'm gonna capture it or call a single place to prevent it or the series for that matter that triple cavs warriors round three. Would be. Great sign me up. OK or lame new faces are needed. Well clearly I don't. Sign me up and it's it's Ali Frazier park three curry has to redeem himself yes he does it it's honestly it's a great story line for him to. Back to back MVPs to be a revelation around the league and then in the biggest moment and of the series that probably more people seen in any games he's played. It I got lots people tweet me I have I've watched him in ten years but I mean for the series final watch this. Staff Corey did not have that he did not have his a game and even opium is be close game. And he talked about and post game how this will fuel them and now the warriors have that thing that the patriots had when they went eighteen you know witches. No matter how good you are next year but nothing matters until you when the title again you gotta get back to the top of the mound you've been look all the flash you want the regular season. But that's what happens when you have a great record aside Greg Gabriel tweet right away that 73 and nine means nothing. I won't quite say means nothing nothing but they did when it ship they might win and the chip at a tax right away does this mean we can't consider the warriors one of the best teams of all time. In in American sports. Yet. I think of that patriots team is the best football team I've ever seen but will it bring it but you gotta finish the job right when you bring it up. They they didn't win the championship title you can still appreciate that what their their regular season was incredible what they did 73 and they play the giants ten times if I would be at nine mediate. Yeah whether the best team ever. I think they work. But if you don't finish the job yeah that conversations really tough. Have a part of it to end and that I don't wanna give back to curry for one in a moment to remind. I think part of it too is also the road you get to the championship. And it's no offense the Cleveland but come on I mean they strolled through the east right before Cleveland Golden State had to deal with a Oklahoma City. That that was a really off. Physical and mentally emotionally. Draining series and and they were down 31. You know the loss carry in the first round against Houston and still won. The had to battle through it against Portland with Hillary in and out of the lineup that'll Casey takes them up 31 a much tougher road trying get to sixteen wins having an and it doesn't it anyway from Cleveland a they came back from 31 down. Against. You know the greatest regular season team in NBA history statistically so I don't think anyway from them but. It had a much more difficult road at least in the conference final opponent to opponent sorry raptors fans. I wanna say one thing about curry immediately you know team he made shots that you just expected and it all for four on three pointers in the final 439. It was one for six in the fourth quarter overall shoot. Mean he's hit those shots and you know the guys were talking about on the telecast. Those are shots he hits all the time whether reason that he was he was a roller coaster through the final series he was up and down. But I give him credit you know me I'm not the handshake guy in the in the group here. But I was really impressed. That he's stayed on the court any and dream on green long after the game was done. You know that the caps are celebrating going crazy and all of a sudden they're step curry Hoggan some caps players and even after key is to win it cream was on the court. Weeding for the cash players to finish celebrating so they could walk up to them. And congratulate them on the win and doc you know just I thought was a really really classy move by both guys. I am I gotta be us with a if I'm in their shoes I might have been so angry and depressed or would have gone right the locker room. I'm not the best sport when things don't go well for me fell. I would I wanted to give them credit I was really impressed both guys stayed up there that's classy involved that it's so what does this mean for buffalo. Well look at now and look what happened here they are with me on this one believe land came out. And they won a championship. Or more falls and buffalo came out dot dot dot. One of my smell of the championship I don't know what it means for I mean it. I still believe someone's gonna win the title here even if Clinton didn't win I still believe at some point the bills of the sabres. In my lifetime will win a championship. Without saying. I don't believe in the bills when this conversation comes up when's our turn. I only think about the sabres with him because well the sabres haven't they ever great player that the right they have their franchise guy to hold the trophy. They have more pieces that I believe are required. That that are clearly definable. While I think the sabres earned better achieve better shape I mean if you follow the two teams you know. Between Michael and Bristol like that they've got a long way to go but if when's it gonna be our turn I think. Hockey seasons is gonna take to get this thing done yet and let's be honest the NBA is now has a much bigger footprint so. We whatever we talk who would you rather see when the bills the sabres people say bills because they want the country. To feel about buffalo the way that appeals Buckley on right now and if it happened for the Stanley Cup. I don't think it's the same it's not the same for the entire country saw I understand that point for me on the Akinori about how many people watch once it's. Our teams in there. Put thinking about Cleveland there is a sense of pride in being the most tortured team Boston used to have this as their identity. Boston sports fans were miserable. And all the time they got their heartbroken. Now there are annoying as they went all the time. So they changed entirely how does this change Cleveland. An Arab Phil went all the time by. For broad bills fans here I think there's a there's a pride you see probable operates San Diego is the is on the clock. Them does the sign I get from that from bill spends his resentment like no they're not that I. And we'd need to be the team we want people blow for us we want to be known as the city that deserves it finally. Not just any old sports city but a sports city where people pay attention people watch the ratings for. Hockey basketball. Over the ratings are pretty good for every sport around your sock her everything this keep these people love the bills they feared losing the bills for the longest time. And we've endured a sixteen year playoff drought so. I do get the sense and view that the fans if they were here. This other team is now the most sports fan base is the most tortured bills fans and sabres fans rise up and say no way we we got that. It's not even close it's not a cult flick we had this discussion when believe land air and remember we you and I talked about. You know who said it works Cleveland sports fans are rots. I honestly feel Cleveland sports events at work you know yet the Braves left town lost the browns the Braves were here for power many years they were here right less than a decade. Love their football team that had been around forever and they've had incredible. Painful losses I I think Cleveland had a worse than not. Did the number for San Diego is larger than the number for buffalo its not even close. I don't know painful Padres lost. And it got us chargers playoff games when Marty shot I was at the blues some playoff games but now. You concluded that there getting me it never they've window once suitable to got blown up ice Francisco yeah. And the Padres got the World Series got slapped by the Yankees and they need responders got there at the tigers they win in what that's right 85 or 84 maybe 84 yeah yeah Iraq. But but it's critical that they that San Diego has the number but they don't have. The team and the misery and the nobody that I'm not as Tony it's like we replica bad. Nobody can compare with Cleveland winning. There's an there's no race for number once it goes up their number wise who would edit the Milwaukee was lifted up there to get the others that you might have in Minnesota the clots. Super balls no goal mean everything we've experienced that nobody nobody. Can hold a candle to us when it comes to flop. Curious. Like I don't have the bills her rent the sabres won a Stanley Cup it would not be a big national story like this is in Cleveland. It beat her if it was the bills but I still don't think. It wouldn't have the same effect as LeBron bringing a championship to Cleveland. But that the twist at the won a super ball the nice thing would be. I'm sure they would be like. You know Jim Kelly would be their Thurman Thomas will be there Bruce Smith the bring back guys you lost all these balls and people might feel good for them outside of buffalo. But there's no way if the bills won a suitable. It would compare LeBron bring in at the championship to Cleveland and it. From a national perspective I don't I atop this. That's a great story and the way it played out series played out and the fact that he did you know let everybody in points rebounds blocks assists steals. It's an incredible story you can't. You can't put that thing together on paper and say. This'll actually happen I can't believe the bills winning the Super Bowl with top that's. Adam silver should light up a giant cigar. Great year they had in the NBA the numbers are all there to prove it's news that. A great year for the sport of severed got booed last night when he handed out the trophy. Was up because the dream and green's suspension is that OK there's always get booed I didn't know what it could've been because I thought trip mongering being suspended makes sense right Adam silver seems like it's a pretty popular commissioner jerk. Why and they but it go to night that's on thing I could think up. Because they were ticked off that green men in game five they're not hockey fans they don't know what it's like but that's a lot I act they. 8080550. To join us 888550. Q 550. Buffalo sports fans how are you feeling up you stayed up last night as a sports fan to watch the story with Cleveland winning. And maybe you're like mean your kept thinking about us all night long. As a buffalo sports fan how you feel about Cleveland championship web poll WGR 550 dot com I'm happy for them and I believe our day will come. Or I'm very depressed now we are suffering all by ourselves you can vault there you can call us 8030550. 80885525. If you talk more about this over the course of the morning we'll get to the US open will get some hockey rumors got some other matters to get through as well. Here on WG. And inconvenient. I think is well deserved it off everything you have been through in the majors. You know knocked on the door launched solved if only gets. You know to get them vigilant it's huge. You know it's. Because through a lot more confidence going and everybody knows I can wind. Okay that's a cool story through but it's just. Hails a little bit in comparison with LeBron in Cleveland winning a championship Dustin Johnson who. You know blue last year's US open comes back wins this year's US open I'll be honest and I didn't watch a lot of it because. And that you know there was no no Jordan's speech. He really wasn't a factor. Mickelson missed the cut right did nothing McIlroy missed the cut. I know it yet. Worries still in a way one yesterday a with a streets with his tweets he's not I wouldn't it another shot until they told me what happened with the penalty Mac -- Matt -- file or speak. If Allard and make the cut not I'm saying the with tweets I'll Ernie Els Tiger Woods everybody tiger tweeting I circled it up parks definite. Which usually he's on Magic Johnson par for not saying anything or Hurt Locker is right he tweeted he's he'd basically treated right I wouldn't have taken another shot until they told me what the decision. How do you play out the rest of the round. Knowing okay I've got a three shot know I got a two shot. No I don't. How did it it changes your strategy would go to every or how you're playing. I felt bad for fox because they kept talking about it and you could tell it's an awkward thing to talk about. How do you accurately portray how ridiculous it is there. A guy hit a plot to forget who was in the that all our missed the putt all that could have brought him within one or two of the leader. That's right what is that apple was said do you put the leaderboard up on TV with a asterisk now yeah little asterisk on the screen to say. Well he's got four under maybe. Well there's a number of ways that they messed that up one is it a penalty or not decide. And rule on that right and then that they hold him about it so he's got to gonna last six holes thinking. I don't know if I'm up one or I'm tied I don't know from tighter on down one. And that would affect Q so greatly are going to the eighteenth with a one stroke lead is different than going the eighteenth tied. I hear play for par and win the tournament like right. -- it was amazing to watch it was really amazing to watch that wrote the rules guy on and everybody just kind of Twitter is where this this all plays out its its work becomes your second screen with television. And watching good the golf greats. Chime in on this and stared out the US GA. I appreciate the fact that they can do that right if this ever happen in the NFL the NBA you do that you make a fine. US GA they've got no jurisdiction over you yet now it well they write to golfers could find. If NFL players were the PDF stuff out they would've gotten far right the PGA could finding guys supposed threat but not about to for US GA event. But it just it it tainted the rest of the tournament it you know whenever you found out about like I said I didn't see it live right tune back in I was watching left came back to back and it tainted the rest of the round. Because you have no idea. Boy if if who was it would have been while he was second RE were second at what you have no idea well he gets a birdie here but then. Well as he three shots Packard. I was very happy for Dustin Johnson that he extended lead to a point where it didn't matter that when he got to eighteen Lowery was avenues troubles one group behind. That it would the whole weathered out of the penalty didn't matter because that would have been imagine. You can't even celebrated eighteen. I mean. There's a you know the guy behind him is still in play but. Imagine the TE one. But then he's sitting at the scorers table or waiting in the to come and say listen we decided it is a penalty. Were you guys are coming back tomorrow what is an eighteen hole playoff at the US open it up a lesson don't celebrate it tomorrow. That's the worst part even beyond pay were gonna have you total playoff. For the television viewer and it's going to be tomorrow yeah eighteen holes out okay great seal literal month. Amid Archos is just absolutely crazy for as much fun as we make of the NHL. I can't even imagine having someone compete in the championship not knowing what it's yeah. 80305 if they join us Cleveland wins the championship that it buffalo sports fans and wanna hear from you are you feeling about championship.
