Game 3 Warriors vs. Cavs in Cleveland

Lebron James 2018 Finals

Scribe: Lucy Osbourne

Email: lucy@thethinkering.com

 

Game three is slated for tonight and The Cavaliers have made a great showing on what appeared to be a marginal season. If anyone had any questions as to whether James is one of the best players to ever lace them up then that should be answered. James has made clear he is a dominant player and is playing peak basketball.

Fans and pundits all agree the western conference is decidedly more competitive than the eastern conference and the lopsided contests are becoming hackneyed.

Remembering back when James was a high school standout, I along with many others became sick of hearing about how great this new young player coming directly into the NBA was playing. Fast forward to 8 consecutive finals appearances and serious dominance with no hint of slowing down the rumors were not as demonstrative enough.

A well known college basketball coach was recently asked by Southwest Airline to prove that her 1-year-old son was hers.

Head coach Lindsay Gottlieb runs the show at the University of California Berkeley and was on a flight to Oakland from Denver when Southwest asked her to show the child's birth certificate. She explained that she did not have the official document but offered his passport which was a problem due to the child's last name being different.

The airline then asked the young mother, “She said, well, how do I know that you’re the mother?” Gottlieb is considered white and Jordan’s father is called black.
