Welcome to another roundup, where we recap all of the biggest headlines of the day!
As we enter July and the NBA gets closer and closer to their Orlando return, the Clippers still await an answer from one of their own. Lou Williams has reportedly been torn on a decision to play or to sit out, and time is running out for him to make a decision. In what may be seen as a sign of hope, head coach Doc Rivers has said that he firmly believes that Williams will be in Orlando with the team. This would certainly go a long way in strengthening the Clippers’ chances this season.
The Lakers, on the other hand, have officially found their replacement for Avery Bradley. The team announced today that they had signed J.R. Smith through the end of the season, filling in the last roster spot before they head to Orlando. Smith and James share plenty of history, which the team is banking on as they search for their first title in a decade.
Much has been made about the legitimacy of the 2020 World Series title, and with good reason. This season will be unlike any other in so many ways, but should the winner be seen in lower light? Former Dodgers‘ pitcher Rich Hill gave his take on the matter, stating that it couldn’t possibly be any less legitimate than the 2017 Astros, who still get to call themselves champions somehow. Many other players feel the same way, stating that a title is still a title, regardless of how many games it took to get there.
Our final story of the day features an all-time great, former Ram Kurt Warner. It has been rumored that a film about the QB was in the works, and those rumors have been put to rest with the official announcement of the film. Shazam! star Zachary Levi is set to portray the Hall of Famer, and he is excited to bring his story to people around the world. Warner will always have a place in the hearts of Rams faithful, but now his story will be amplified for everyone to see what makes him so special.
