I would have loved to bet on Giancarlo Stanton or Aaron Judge but they were only paying 1.8-1 which are basically bet 1 to win 1.80 not really great odds. "You got to have a formula and everything just like hitting in a game, but it more reminds me of when my dad was throwing to me back in the day", Stanton told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

    His contract will be restructured. For any teams that thought they might have the chance to bid at the All-Star it is a false alarm. While the position is not terribly important in Golden State's systems, both Zaza Pachulia and JaVale McGee could use their title pedigree to pursue greater riches elsewhere this summer.

    I broke down so I couldn't really finish my speech. Kerr said Durant's career has been incredible, but during the Finals he took it to another level. Durant came to the Warriors to be the guy who could allow them to meet and overcome James's unrelenting talent and will. Irving finished 9/22 from the floor with 26 points and four turnovers after a 40-point night in Game 4 .

    Sixers fans are frothing at the idea that Simmons and Fultz could become the next great backcourt combination, feeding a healthy Embiid and forming a playoff core next season.

    Sport

    Paul George might be demanding a trade now, so the Pacers will find a suitable spot to move him later on. Now, it's important to distinguish between discussing a trade in theory and seriously getting down to brass tacks. Cleveland on the other hand is going to be making changes and they might be the only trade option if the Los Angeles Lakers decide to hold off for now.
