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.
