UVA alum Joe Harris headed to NBA Finals

Cleveland finished off a four-game sweep of the #1 seed Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals with a blowout win on Tuesday night.

I don’t live in, nor am I a fan of the basketball teams based in, New York, New Jersey, Cleveland, Chicago or Miami. With apologies to Michael Vick, I’ve got no dog in the fight. My take on the LeBron James saga: ahem, if I’m The King, I’m packing my bags for the Big Apple. […]
