The remarkable Golden State Warriors have done it again. For the third time in four years, the remarkable squad has brought the NBA championship back to the Bay Area. Following a narrow, overtime Game 1 NBA Finals victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Warriors reeled off three more in a row to sweep the Cavs and take the title. Kevin Durant, for the second consecutive year, was named Finals MVP — averaging 28.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 7.5 assists for the four game set. Durant was brilliant throughout, but his 43 points in Game 3 — including a late game 3-pointer from about 30 feet out with the shot clock winding down — helped dash any legitimate hopes Cleveland had of winning. Durant, on Tuesday, will join his teammates — including Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green — for the official victory celebration.

After 43 years of futility, the Washington Capitals claimed their first-ever Stanley Cup last week — by virtue of their four games to one series victory over the Vegas Golden Knights in the Cup Final. Undoubtedly, the key moment of the series was the miraculous Game 2 save in the closing moments by Caps goalie Braden Holtby. With Washington trailing 1-0 in the series and only leading by one goal in the game, Holtby’s save helped preserve the key victory, and help completely turn the momentum in the series. Now, the Caps make a triumphant homecoming — led, of course, by their all-world superstar Alexander Ovechkin. The left-winger was scintillating in the postseason, scoring an astounding 15 goals en route to winning the Conn Smythe trophy as playoffs MVP. Expect Ovechkin to get the lion’s share of the face time during the victory celebration. He’s certainly been, um, enjoying his Continue reading "WATCH LIVE: Washington Capitals Celebrate Stanley Cup Title With Parade Through Streets of DC"
White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow will substitute for Sarah Huckabee Sanders today by holding a press briefing to discuss the upcoming G7 summit. The briefing is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. ET. Kudlow will surely be asked about President Donald Trump‘s tariffs — which have not been well received by the international community. In a phone conversation with the president earlier this week, British Prime Minister Theresa May said she believes the tariffs on steel and aluminum from her country are “unjustified” and “disappointing.” Kudlow, while working in the private sector, was less enthusiastic about the idea of tariffs. But now, as a key member of the president’s cabinet, he’s hopped on board. The idea of the United States negotiating separate trade deals with Canada and Mexico outside of NAFTA has also surfaced in recent days. Expect Kudlow to address this at some point. Watch above, via Continue reading "WATCH LIVE: Larry Kudlow Briefs Press Ahead of G7 Summit"
President Donald Trump is holding another big rally in Nashville, Tennessee tonight. The President is expected to throw his full support behind Congresswoman and Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn, but it’s a given POTUS will also want to weigh in on a few other big news topics. His claims of “SpyGate” and attacks on the Mueller probe have continued into this week, and he may reiterate his criticisms tonight. Trump could also very well talk about ongoing negotiations with North Korea or trade with China. But then, of course, there’s Roseanne. The prospect of the President talking about the controversial star after her show’s cancellation by ABC isn’t entirely impossible, seeing as how he gave Roseanne Barr a shoutout on the debut ratings of the revival series.

President Donald Trump will address the 2018 graduating class of the United States Naval Academy on Friday morning in Annapolis, MD. The speech is expected to remain mostly apolitical. But it’s worth noting that last year, while giving the commencement address at Liberty University, the president took the opportunity to blast critics. “[T]he fact is no one has ever achieved anything significant without a chorus of critics standing on the sidelines explaining why it can’t be done,” Trump said at Liberty. “Nothing is easier or more pathetic than being a critic, because they’re people that can’t get the job done, but the future belongs to the dreamers, not to the critics.” The ceremony began at 10:00 a.m. ET.

NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series champion Martin Truex Jr. and his team are being hosted at the White House today by President Trump. It was just three years ago during the campaign that a minor tiff between NASCAR and Trump briefly broke out during the campaign, but the President praised NASCAR last year over its response to national anthem protests. Per NBC Sports, this is the Trump’s first White House visit from a NASCAR champ, and he may very well welcome it today as a distraction from some other big news items.
