This and That

 

Week of May 19th, 2019

 

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

*Zion Williamson? has created hoops hysteria in New Orleans. Word has it that it hasn╒t changed the mind of ?Anthony Davis, who requested a trade. What a dynamic duo they would be. Yes, thunder and lightning, baby.

*When you look at the 2019 draft, basically there is a major talent difference from top three instant-impact PTPers such as Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and RJ Barrett. Quality is available, but not much difference in talent from a #4 pick & a let╒s say #15.

*I see Texas Tech coach Chris Beard╒s name in jobs like Michigan, but he told me it is flattering will take a special, special offer to get him away from the Red Raiders.

*Nick Kyrgios threw a chair to earn a disqualification at the Italian Open. Tennis should suspend him big time. Yes he is multi-talented, but the guy needs help.

*Brooks Koepka put on a clinic for three rounds and hung on to win his fourth major in 23 months. That puts him in pretty great company.

*Rafael Nadal won his first tournament on 2019, beating Novak Djokovic in the final at Italy. Rafa is ready for the French.

 

*Rafael Nadal has lost three semifinals on clay this year. Is he vulnerable at the French? Novak Djokovic won at Madrid last week.

Quote of the Week

"I feel Juwan Howard would be solid choice for Michigan head coach."
