This week saw the first full week of the NBA Playoffs and no surprise the headliners were Cleveland’s LeBron James, Golden State’s Steph Curry and EBONY Cover star, Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook. Still no telling who will cut down the net, but these ballers are offering a clue.

But that wasn’t the only hype sports event this week. On Monday, the Kenyans took back the Boston Marathon with Geoffrey Kirui winning in the men’s category and Edna Kiplagat winning for the women.

Meanwhile, the Force was with us as the trailer for Lucasfilm’s “The Last Jedi” was released. John Boyega, who will reprise his role as “Finn” made an appearance at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando to talk about all things related to the galaxy far, far away.

Finally it was BAWSE night as Rick Ross headlined the show at the launch party of Eclipse at the Daylight Beach Club in the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas.

Check back next week for more Black excellence captured in the Black Lens.
