Westbrook averaged 23.5 points and 10.4 assists last season, in what was the most efficient year of his thus far tremendous career.

As per tradition, a group of UC Berkeley students ran through Moffitt Library and Main Stacks the Wednesday of dead week naked.
The UC Berkeley Naked Run happens every semester during the week leading up to final exams, fearless UC Berkeley students shamelessly streak through main library while shouting and blowing horns as onlookers cheer them. It seems for these students exposing their privates is about celebrating their freedom on the UC Berkeley campus. It last for 20 minutes.
Others complain about the noise and disruption, and most complain about the naked runners smell.

Even without MVP LeBron James and Stephen Curry, the USA is still the favorites to win the gold for third consecutive time at the Rio Olympic Games. The Americans have won 17 consecutive games at the Olympics dating back to the 2004 bronze medal game at the 2004 Athens Olympics
USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo has chose Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Paul George, Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Harrison Barnes, Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, DeAndre Jordan and DeMarcus Cousins to represent the country in the Olympics.
Durant and Anthony are the only players with Olympic experience after a number of stars, including James, decided to skip Rio.
Players who withdraw from consideration were MVP LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge, John Wall, Blake Griffin, Anthony Davis and James Harden.
“First of all, you have 12 dedicated guys who have committed to be part of this and represent their country and that in itself is a big statement,” Colangelo told USA TODAY Sports. “Some just came off a championship series. We’re appreciative of that commitment.
“Number two, this is a very strong team. There’s been a lot said about those who are not participating, and it should be more about who is participating and what they bring to the table. It’s a deep roster. We have a number of guys who could play 2-3 positions, and it gives Coach K (Mike Krzyzewski) several options of how we can play.”

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers became the first NBA team to overcome a 3-1 deficit in the Finals and ended Cleveland’s 52-year, major professional sports championship drought. LeBron James had a super performance contributing 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in a 93-89 victory in Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Sunday that clinched the Cavaliers’ first championship in franchise history.
Both teams do what they best at to try to win the game Cleveland was physical, bullying Golden State on the boards (48-39) and in the paint (48-28). James who had a 41-point was assertive, racking up 12 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists in the first half. While all eyes were on Stephen Curry, it was Draymond Green who provided a first-half spark, piling up 22 points and making all five of his three-point attempts.
Curry scored nine-points in the first half, but needed eight shots to get them. Klay Thompson was worse. Curry’s sidekick scored five points on 2-of-9 shooting in the first two quarters. Fortunately for Golden State, James received less help. After scoring 64 points the last two games, Kyrie Irving could muster just nine in the first half. And Kevin Love, desperately in need of a breakout performance, had five points on 1-of-5 shooting.
The battle between James and Curry, already chippy, continued in Game 7. James blocked a Curry layup in the second quarter, lingering in Curry’s vicinity for a few seconds. Curry turned, bumped into James chest and began barking at the Cavs star. Green interceded, and referee Mike Callahan needed to step in and separate them.
Draymond Green had 32 points, 15 rebounds and 9 assists for the Warriors, and Stephen Curry had 17 points but shot just 6 of 19 from the field. In the final minute, Curry missed a 3-pointer that would have tied the game. With 10.6 seconds left, James made 1 of 2 free throws to seal the win.
LeBron James was named Finals MVP.
