It’s NBA Finals night, and admittedly, this Gossip column is a little late due to all the buzz and excitement. But we still have some stuff that you might have missed either around the World Wide Web.
DELLAVEDOVA: I SPEND A LOT OF TIME AT CHIPOTLE
Matthew Dellavedova wasn’t a big name before the Playoffs began.
But since the Australian international came into the spotlight during the post-season, we’re finding out a bit more about him.
Via Bleacher Report:
Dellavedova’s 19-point performance in the Cavaliers’ close-out win in Game 6 in the conference semifinals and his physical hustle plays against the Bulls and Hawks have made him a cult hero in Cleveland. The team shop sold out of his merchandise, and local rapper Mizzery Jones of A.I. produced “Hustle Like Delly,” with the words “I’m just tryin’ to stay ready, ’til I die I’m gonna hustle like Delly.”
The 24-year-old Dellavedova wasn’t aware of the song, as he’s turned off the outside noise.
“My life is just the same,” he said. “I still do the same things. I spend a lot of time at Chipotle.”

LEBRON THE GREATEST SMALL FORWARD EVER?
Former Warrior Rick Barry says so…
Via CBS Radio:
“I think LeBron is the greatest three to ever play the game. And as great as he is, he still has room for improvement. If that was ever to happen and he really refined his game more, they may have to outlaw him, he’s so good. He’s an anomaly, I mean he really is. There’s never been anybody like him with his size, his athleticism, his feel for the game.”
