5- Enjoyed the British this weekend. Early broadcasts are a beautiful thing. Any comparison of Rory to Tiger/Jack is grossly premature however. Right now he's a lot closer to Phil; big wins big losses. If he gets the Masters in the next year or two though he is on a whole new level. 5 yesterday I heard you say the Opens were a tie with the Masters way out in front. Taking emotion out of it how can the Masters with all the amateurs and past champs (no chance) be in front?
Mailbag: Should Tom Watson reinstate the player/captain role and name Phil, Tiger and himself to the Ryder Cup team?
5- The NBA version of musical chairs is pretty fascinating so far. In sports business or life in general most of us want to deal with winners if possible. The Cavs owner is savvy in business for sure but as an owner not so much. (winning #1 pick twice is pure luck). The organization has to come in to consideration for Lebron right?Pat Riley won titles as player coach and executive and is highly respected league wide. Dan Gilbert..seems like a no brainer where James would sign. What's your guess?
5-Kinda surprised at how many SF/PF went before J Stokes last night. I don't catch a lot of college hoops anymore but both times I saw him live last year he was pretty much unstoppable. 3 years in college better each year 15/10 average with little to no help each night, those aren't good stats those are great. Seemed humble and a genuine good guy in interviews too, maybe I'm missing something..
Jomo- Based on your logic why haven't they already done so? 6 months sounds like a minor commitment.
Jomo-That is funny thanks for the laugh! Seriously you are kidding though right? Right? 4.9 is real fast not to mention body control and incredible footwork. If soccer was so easy to master more people would do it. Other countries laugh at our version of station to station futball too. Outside of a couple of NFL QBs any MLS team would romp on the Seahawks.
5- Game 4 was strange but fun to watch. The officials really let them play which played into Leonard's hand the whole game. He seemed to gain confidence and aggressiveness each quarter and was the best player on the floor. He was on the bench with fouls in game 2 or it would be 'Fo up Fo down'. The heat could use a rebound or two.
Tiger doesn't just move the needle he is the needle.
Isn't Elin a twin?
5- You named many wonderful scribes. Frank Deford and Grantland Rice belong there somewhere and for current topics everyday Bill Simmons-Grantland is terrific.
Lefty has somehow sucked all the oxygen out of the open. If he doesn't win or at least contend it will be another snooze fest for the tour.(hurry back Eldrick). If he does win though he cruises past about 10 guys into top 10 all time. For sure the 2nd best player of his generation which isn't bad. Never a Varden trophy money title or world number 1, but man 45 plus wins and career grand slam,6 majors hope he pulls it off.
MT, I'd say it's big for him first US win and all. Kinda like a college degree, if you don't have one it's meaningless and if you do you don't give it back. Mocs' Robb really showed out too.
Golf wins the weekend for finally showing a pulse. Monty wins a major, Rory goes low on last day to win, Korda battles Wie (-20)is getting it done, Scott beats Bozo the clown in playoff. Bravos without leadership are circling the drain. James has done it all year and keeps doing it but the real key is Wade playing like a champ. Spurs are too deep though. I'll put a 'tall boy' on the spurs in 7. Racing..naaah.
A lifetime ban is justified and probably overdue for Sterling. Forcing him to sell or assuming control of his business is not. Transfer of ownership to his spouse is equitable for all and he's out of sight out of mind. Market value on the Clips is around 1.5 billion says Bill Simmons. That's great return on investment.
