Press week has descended upon us again as quickly as Shannon Brown on the fastbreak dunk. No sooner than we started this issue was it already press deadline. It is a sports-lovers dream season right now: the NHL Playoffs just wrapped up, there's only one game left to decide the 2010 NBA Champions (Come on Lakers!), the MLB is in full swing, the World Cup is kicking off, and just four days left to the Wimbledon Championships. Seeing as my creative juices have been drained (all to good use towards the July issue of The OC Gazette - it's gonna be a GREAT one), I have compiled some of my favorite sports blog posts from this week- and there have been so many good ones to choose from. So enjoy SoCal Sports fans. Enjoy.

Title: Jen Plays A Game
These female Ducks bloggers play the old "Kill, Bang, or Marry" with the entire Ducks Roster. Hilarity ensues. (Author's Note: Credit must be given to Eric Doerr for the Anaheim Ducks blog post.)

Title: Behind the Box Score, where the Lakers left it all out there
This NBA blog is edited by Trey Kirby and is full of witty insights. It's funny, it's enlightening, it's awesome. This is a good run down of last night's game.

Title: Kobe's Legacy Nearly Complete
David McMenamin proves that despite Kobe's cool demeanor, he is in fact taking down names. He won't be finished until he's beaten all the records and outshined all his competitors. One thing on the list? That fifth ring.
I'll let you part with this inspiring video of last night's game highlights to get everyone pumped for Game 7 tomorrow night. (Fun Fact: This is just the 2nd Game 7 in the last 16 years of the NBA Finals. The last was when the Spurs won in 2005.)
