Golden State Warriors / Toronto Raptors Game Five; Kevin Durant Injury; Forbes' Highest Paid Athletes

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin we recap game five of the NBA Finals. How were the Golden State Warriors able to survive against the Toronto Raptors, at least for another game? Also, some unfortunate news concerning Kevin Durant, who returned to action last night after an extensive right calf injury, but went down again...this time, much more severe. What does it say about Durant's competitive spirit? Also, Al has an interesting take on the Toronto fans who boo'd Durant when he went down with the injury. Lastly, Al gives thoughts on Forbes' latest list of highest paid athletes in the world. That, and more!
