The College Advisory Committee recommended Malik Jefferson return to the University of Texas. He threw away the papers.
“It’s not really good feedback,” Jefferson said, via Max Olson of The Athletic. “If a guy wants to come out early, they have to make a decision on their own. Really, if you’re not like a top-10 guy coming out early, it’s just up in the air from there. You just don’t know. Anything can happen.”
The Bengals made the linebacker a third-round pick. Jefferson has no doubt he could have gone higher next year, but he doesn’t believe the CAC accurately reflects the entire league’s judgment of him.
On a more basic level, the Cavs ran more of the profitable two-man actions that had been staring them in the face since before the series started. George Hill and LeBron screened for each other off the ball — what a concept! — forcing the Celtics into a choice: switch Rozier onto LeBron, or stay home and risk someone popping open. When Boston stayed home, the Cavs jaunted into dunks and open 3s. When the Celtics switched, LeBron went to work.
Bryant, the franchise’s all-time leader in touchdown catches, spent his first eight seasons with the Cowboys but remains unsigned after Dallas released him in April. The All-Pro had been linked to the Ravens earlier in the offseason before Baltimore signed former Saints wide receiver Willie Snead to a two-year deal.
Gallup, 22, was selected by the Cowboys out of Colorado State in the third round of last month’s draft.
Kyle and his three younger brothers were all born in Los Angeles. Kyle grew up a Lakers fan and loved going to the beach. When his father accepted the senior pastor job back in the town where he went to college, Kyle, who was 12 at the time, cried for two days on the move across the country.
When the boys played on the court after school, they rarely played 2-on-2. But when they did play a game, Kyle and Kirk would be on a team together. Kyle was almost 10 years older than Kirk, the youngest. Often they’d play shooting games to test one another’s skills.
