Blake Griffin has no hard feelings toward Chris Paul as he takes over as Clippers’ leader

With Chris Paul out of the picture and a five-year, $172 million contract now signed, the Clippers are officially Blake Griffin’s team. Griffin, at least publicly, is ready to move forward without CP3.

He said Wednesday he has no hard feelings toward Paul for orchestrating an offseason trade to the Rockets. The two played together for six seasons, at least when one or both weren’t sidelined by injuries.

I really care about the bus drivers, Barkley said after Durant’s decision. On every team, there’s a bus driver. Most of those guys are just bus riders.

Towns still stops himself when he thinks about the position he’s been put in, he said. It was only in 2014 that he gave an emotional, memorable speech upon winning the Gatorade Athlete of the Year award.

In it, a teary Towns thanked his parents, and said his most memorable day was when his father told him they were taking all their savings and putting in a basketball court in the yard for him. We didn’t have enough money for a real hoop, Towns told his father. But you made sure that you built one, by hand, so I could practice.

He’s come a long way.

I went up there with a lot of emotion, Towns recalled. I just was thinking about all that I had gone through to get there, and it was truly special. Three and a half years later, and I am still thinking about it. I felt so young when I won it, but now I feel so old like it was decades ago.

2014 NFL draft was one of the best ever, unless you’re the Browns

Conventional wisdom in the NFL says that you need at least three years to properly judge a draft class. Sure, giving out grades right after the fact is always fun. But there’s a lot to be said for waiting to see the players actually take the field before we can truly see if they pan out or not.

The Rams admitted their mistake this offseason, signing Andrew Whitworth to play left tackle. Robinson will have one last chance to save his career at guard or right tackle next year.

Nick Coomes is forced to perform nearly a full split to get the last out of the inning at first. Definitely not a good defensive outing from LSU, but it only results in one run. Florida can credit its 2-0 lead to LSU’s three errors.

ANOTHER error from LSU, this time from third baseman Josh Smith. Dalton Guthrie reaches, and Florida has runners on first and second. Florida up 2-0,

Gators capitalize on another mistake from LSU. Deacon Liput singles to center, scoring Nick Horvath from second.

Why he’s here: The All-Star Game might be in Miami, but this exhibition will be a celebration of the young stars for the AL’s best team, the Astros. Springer is the fifth guy we’ve mentioned here, and second baseman Jose Altuve (27) and closer Ken Giles (26) could make the squad, too. Worth noting that Springer has those 22 homers with all 70 of his starts as Houston’s leadoff hitter.
