“Remind Me of Chris Bosh”: Former NBA All-Star Praises Warriors’ Possible Draft Pick – EssentiallySports

Anthony Edwards, LaMelo Ball, James Wiseman, Tyrese Haliburton, and Obi Toppin. These are some top names that are ready to receive the earliest picks as soon as the NBA Draft 2020 kicks off. Timberwolves, Warriors, and Hornets would like to sign the best from these prospects so they leave no big shark for the others to own. Discussing specifically the curious case of Golden State Warriors, they seem more interested in James Wiseman than any other name. The 6-time champion franchise would love to give a center boost to their already strong lineup of Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson. But how good is Wiseman? Is he Joel Embiid good or Chris Bosh good? A former NBA All-star weighs Wiseman against Chris Bosh 4-time NBA All-star and 2-time NBA first...

Plaschke: Justin Turners act of selfishness leaves stain on Dodgers championship moment – Los Angeles Times

In the interest of public safety, millions of Americans who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 have voluntarily isolated themselves from friends and family for two long and lonely weeks. Justin Turner wouldn’t quarantine for two hours. In the interest of common sense, millions of other Americans have been purposely absent for many deeply personal events, canceling weddings, postponing funerals, missing births. Justin Turner wouldn’t skip a trophy celebration. And so one of the greatest team accomplishments in the history of Los Angeles sports has been marred by a singular act of selfishness, the divine tinged with disappointment, a lovable leader now bathed in disillusionment. In his seven years as a Dodger, the red-bearded Turner has become everybody’s favorite hometown kid. He’s like...
