Tony Parker (R) of the San Antonio Spurs defends against LeBrn James of the Miami Heat during the fourth quarter of Game 6 of the NBA Finals at the American Airlines Arena June 18, 2013 in Miami, Florida.

Time for our weekly romp through sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky, brothers who have covered sports for the L.A. Times and ESPN. 

The NBA Finals game 6 was in Miami last night. The Spurs had a 10-point lead to start the fourth and final quarter. Lebron James and the Heat have their legacy on the line. 

The Heat went on to win in overtime and force a winner take all game 7 tomorrow.

Three years ago when Lebron infamously made his nationally broadcast decision to as he said, take his talents to South Beach, the Heat threw a huge party complete with pyrotechnics a hydraulic stage.  

Lebron James is one of the greatest players of all time. But if tomorrow the Spurs wind up champions, what will most of America be saying about Lebron?

The Clippers, who for decades have been the running joke of the sports world are now stepping up their relevancy.

The Major League Baseball All Star Game is in New York is a little less than a month from now. The Dodgers Cuban sensation Yasiel Puig has played a grand total of 13 games but he's hitting .479 with four home runs. Is this enough to make worthy of being an All-Star or should people just calm down a bit?

All-star Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw is upset over something that would make most people overjoyed.

American Olympian hurdler, now bobsledder, Lolo Jones is also upset over her check.

The Oakland A's have an awful ballpark from the inside out. They want to move, another California city wants them but why can't they leave?

Serena Williams is catching some heat over some comments attributed to her in Rolling Stone.
