    Many of you reading this weren't alive in 1965. I was 13 then and remember it as a time full of discord and racial tension.

    Yes, America seems more divided now than ever, but trust me, things were worse in 1965. It was two years after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and three years before Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy would be gunned down.

    Most of the South, and much of the rest of the country, was segregated. Riots in Watts tore apart Los Angeles.

  • ESPN.com: 'It's how you make history': The run that punched Toronto's first Finals ticket

    TORONTO -- There's very little about Kawhi Leonard that screams "mindfulness guru," but as the Toronto Raptors gathered on the bench during a timeout in the midst of the team's big 26-3 run in the second half, he told his teammates, "Enjoy the moment, stay here, stay together, we're good," according to Raptors guard Norman Powell.

    The Raptors did enjoy the moment, did stay together and we're so good they erased a 15-point deficit late in the third quarter in less than four minutes of game time. This explosive spurt was the most consequential stretch of basketball of the NBA postseason, vaulting Toronto to a 100-94 win over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals, and the first Finals appearance in Raptors' franchise history.
