Jun 23, 2016, 01:00 AM

The ascendancy of the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James to the top of the mountain has captivated hoop fans everywhere, including us. First, Dave Zirin sings the praises of LeBron and the Cavs, and then speaks with Cyd Zeigler, founder of the website Outsports and author of the new book ‘Fair Play: How LGBT Athletes Are Claiming Their Rightful Place in Sports’ about how the sports world responded to the massacre of LGBT people in Orlando. Finally, we take it to church…seriously…with a recording of Dave’s Father’s Day sermon, as delivered to Plymouth Congregational Church in DC on "Muhammad Ali, Orlando, and the Light of Understanding."Cyd Zeigler: https://twitter.com/CydZeiglerFair Play: How LGBT Athletes Are Claiming Their Rightful Place in Sportshttp://www.akashicbooks.com/catalog/fair-play/Outsportshttp://www.outsports.com/ | https://twitter.com/outsportsPlymouth Congregational United Church of Christ.
