A FEW THOUGHTS FROM THE WORLD OF SPORTS

From time to time a few thoughts come to mind from the world of sports.  Just a few to share:

NCAA......One of the biggest corrupt organizations in this country.

NBA.....Steph Curry just signed a 201 million dollar contract with the Warriors.  Is he worth it??
              Probably not since there is no one worth that kind of money.  Is He the best the NBA has to                       offer today??  Probably
             
Lebron James stated that he never played on a regular season team that was made up of all star caliber players like the Golden Warriors displayed this year.  How soon he forgets about all the back door dealings that put him together with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh.  It was not that long ago when the 3 appeared on stage and promised 5 upcoming championships  for the Miami Heat.

Lonzo Ball ..... Drafted by the LA Lakers and named as a player by his father as being better than Curry and Michael Jordan, the transition from college to the NBA will not be an easy one for him.  Opponents already have their sights on him.

NFL and MLB.....  Curry may be overpaid in the NBA but think about how many NFL quarterbacks and Major League baseball pitchers make multi millions and do not perform nearly to the degree of Curry.

GOLF.....Needless to say, the future for Tiger Woods when it comes to competing once again looks grim.  At age 41, with all of his medical issues are of major concerns.  At best he should take care of all of his problems, take several years off and maybe, just maybe could possibly compete in a few years on the Senior Tour at age 50..

Another golfer whos future is not that bright today is Phil Mickelson.  Withdrawing from the recent US Open to attend his daughters high school graduation was admirable, but missing the competitiveness of a major tournament may not have been in his best interests.  Put that together with the recent separation from his caddie,  Bones Mackay after 25 years certainly will not be a plus.  Miakelson takes more time off and with all of his success, he does not need to play as much, but to be competitive, one must play.

Fox Sports along with lead commentator, Joe Buck creates a bland and boring presentation when it comes to broadcasting the US Open.  Stick to maybe baseball and bring back NBC for the event.
