Welcome back to CSPN’s Know the Score !
This week, we mourn the loss of The Greatest Of All Time, Muhammad Ali, who passed away at the age of 74. A significant icon in sports, culture, race, and history, Ali pioneered and trail-blazed much of what we talk about today in the sports world.
We also review the end of the Western Conference Finals, with the defending champs pulling out a Game 7 victory to punch their ticket to The NBA Finals. We then talk about Game 1 of The Finals between the Warriors and the Cavs and the uphill battle Lebron & company face in this series. Finally, our roundtable talk about their favorite and most memorable NBA Finals moments from recent years.
All of this, plus our nominees for the weekly #KTSPod awards.
