We give a recap of game two of the NBA Finals, as well as discuss the improbablity of Lansing hoop product Bryn Forbes, who is playing on basketball's biggest stage. Also, we discuss COVID-19 at the Tokyo Olympics and Sha'Carri Richardson being left off the 4x100 relay team. 

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin, we dive into last night's Phoenix Suns victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in game two of the NBA Finals. Al also tells of the remarkable journey that Lansing hoop product Bryn Forbes has had, now playing on the Finals stage. Also, Japan has declared a state of emergency due to COVID-19, meaning that no spectators will be allowed at the olympic games. We react, while also discussing why Sha'Carri Richardson was left off of the 4x100 relay team. 'Reflection Friday' closes the show as we salute the first African American winner of the 2021 Scripps National Spelling Bee; Zaila Avant-garde.
