Sports fans, good day to you all.

We’ve got plenty for you to peruse in the way of breaking news and information on your beloved NBA and NFL so it’s only right that we get straight to it.

Read on below for all the latest. Alternatively you can watch the video above for visual delivery.

GM's pick Cavs

The poll has been taken, the results are in and the NBA’s general managers have spoken.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will win their first NBA title next June, derailing the Golden State Warriors dynasty before it’s even up and running.

That’s right, 53.6% of the league’s GM’s picked the Cavs to win the title, with a majority also electing for LeBron James as the man most likely to win the coveted MVP award.

The championship selection is interesting due to the fact that the Warriors were statistically the best winning franchise since Michael Jordan’s Bulls, but there you go.

Buss hits out at Bryant criticism

Next up, Los Angeles Lakers executive Jim Buss has hit back at those criticising his franchise for handing Kobe Bryant a $50million, two-year contract, suggesting that he was more than worth it.

The deal, given to Bryant in 2013, was seen as an oversight by some, but Buss has hit out at that concept, insisting that the franchise was right to reward the superstar for his long service.

Jackson accident

Meanwhile, in NFL, Seattle Seahawks running back Fred Jackson was involved in a car accident today but has confirmed he is fine.

The police statement said he had lost control of his black Chevy Corvette and hit a stop sign, with the man himself later tweeting to insist that he wasn’t racing against teammates.

Brady fearing Revis?

In other news, Tom Brady is concerned that former teammate Darrelle Revis knows enough about how things are done at the New England Patriots to hurt the franchise when his new side, the New York Jets, take them on this Sunday.

Brady said his old teammate had an intimate knowledge of the Pats and implied it could be detrimental when the two sides meet at the weekend.
