LeBron James and Kevin Durant battled it out in the NBA Finals last month, with James and the Miami Heat coming away as the victor. While preparing for the upcoming Olympics Games, James once again got the best of Durant as they traded some unique trick shots.

Sticking with basketball, a college basketball player performs one of the coolest in-game dunks I've ever seen. Elizabeth City State University guard Angelo Sharples was participating in the Ben Wallace Summer Pro-Am game in Richmond, VA.

Injuries are synonymous with sports. Even the best athletes in the world, no matter how careful they are, are prone to some sort of injury over the life of their career. On Wednesday, Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie attempted to catch a foul ball, but wound up in the camera well.
