This and That

Week of June 1st, 2020

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

*The  2020-21 season of ⁦Iowa hoops will be determined by the decision of ⁦Luka Garza. He’s unsure if he'll stay in the NBA draft or return to Iowa.

*I don’t think Gerrit Cole will miss on paying his bills if he gets the lower salary. I just hope baseball comes back as my Rayscould be the best in the AL East.

*Sonny Vaccaro has never received the credit and dollars he deserves for putting his neck on the line to get Nike

 to sign Michael Jordan before he starred in the NBA.

*So sad to hear of the passing of Chris Dufresne, who was a 40-year guy with the LA Times. Over the years, I had several chats with him about hoops. Yes, he was a legend in football. Chris had strong opinions but always great integrity and was so fair. Please RIP.

*This is an ugly soap opera for ⁦Kansas athletics as they should have just paid off Dave Beaty, the ex-football coach, after firing him instead  of embarrassing the school.

*Great news for ⁦UCLLA, having Johnny Juzang eligible as he will help Mick Cronin.
