Tony Kanaan,Indy 500

Tony Kanaan ended his 12 years of winning drought with one anticlimactic last lap as he win the Indianapolis 500.

Kanaan is a champion at last. It was one of Indy's most popular victories.

The losing drivers were pleased with the win, evidenced by a scene similar to rivals lining up to congratulate Dale Earnhardt when he finally won the Daytona 500 on his 20th try. Dario Franchitti, whose crash brought out the race-ending caution, stood grinning by his crumpled car, two thumbs up as Kanaan passed under yellow.

"When I saw who was leading, it cheered me up a little bit,'' said Franchitti, last year's winner. ''He's a very, very deserving winner."

The fans gave him a standing ovation as they scream "TK! TK! TK!" when he and team owner Jimmy Vasser went by during the traditional victory lap. It felt magical to Kanaan, like he had given the crowd at Indianapolis Motor Speedway a gift.

LeBron James flopped in Game 3 of Heat vs Bulls

Like game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals series between the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat game 3 didn't lack of as Lebron said "not basketball plays."

Tensions went high again when at 9:29 in the second quarter, as LeBron James drives the ball Nazr Mohammed come from behind him and hugged him for an intentional foul. James, twisted and shoved Nazr to the ground that earned him a technical from Referee Joey Crawford. LeBron then immediately began to complain to the referee. Nazr jumped to his feet and hit back with a light shove to the chest that shockingly thrown a 6' 8" 249.1 lbs LeBron James five feet away. It was ridiculously funny. And the referees decided to eject Nazr after a review of the play. Seriously? how does the NBA employ a referee?

On a separate play, Joakim Noah shoved Chris (porn) Andersen when Andersen fell on top of Nate Robinson who drived to the hoop and received a hard fould from Andersen. Check out the clips!

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau on post game said "From my angle I just saw a guy basically flopped, and I'm gonna leave it at that. We're well aware of what's going on. I'm watching how things are going. I watch very closely. What I'm seeing is… We'll adjust accordingly." Thibodeau noticed inconsistent officiating in the Bulls' conference semifinal matchup with the Heat and that he saw LeBron flopped.

Floyd Mayweather is still unbeaten with a perfect record of 44 victories as he won by unanimous decision against Robert Guerrero to retain his WBC welterweight title.

This is Mayweather first fight after serving his jail time for three months. He was convicted of domestic violence after beating his ex-wife. The score card for the 12 rounder were 117-111 for all the three judges in favour of Floyd.

Overall it was a slow and boring fight with little action. In the first round Guerrero was aggressive but Floyd seize control in the third round and later rounds just like every Mayweather fight.

In the eight round Mayweather hit Guerrero with a power punch that shocked and wobbled Guerrero. Mayweather continued with straight rights and counter punches that cut Guerrero eye.

Floyd Mayweather failed to knockout a clearly overwhelmed and over-matched Guerrero. This fight was a snooze fest.
