This and That PDF Print E-mail

Week of April 24th, 2017 

Each week I'll write about the world of sports:

*No doubt for me when LeBron James says bye to the NBA,  he will be in the debate as being the best of all- time. He led the Cavaliers to a sweep of the Pacers.

*Duke was happy that Grayson Allen decided to return for his senior season. He should put up good numbers. 

*Hard to believe the Chicago Blackhawks were swept by Nashville. Chicago scored three goals in four games. Give coach Peter Laviolette credit for a great gameplan.

*Tough break for the Giants with pitcher Madison Bumgarner injured on a dirt bike. He could miss up to two months. 

*Hoping that Warriors coach Steve Kerr can get well soon. He missed game three vs. the Blazers.
