On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin," we have a show filled with NBA playoff and baseball talk! The Cleveland Cavaliers came back to win Game 4, 112-99.  Kyrie Irving scored a playoff career high 42 points. LeBron James rebounded nicely from 11 point performance, by putting in 34 points.  What percentage of credit should Irving get for the big Cavs win? Then Al and fill-in engineer Brad Walker speak on the NFL owners meeting  in Chicago the new rule changes.  Plays that previously showed "excessive celebration" will now be allowed.  The league will still penalize celebrations that go on for extended periods of time.  The overtime will be cut down from 15 minutes to 10 minutes in an effort to improve player safety. To wrap up the show, Al interviews Rick Curti, founder and CEO of the Charlotte Bats.  They discuss the idea of brining Major League baseball to Charlotte.  Enjoy!
