MR. DESTINY: In DC, Deron Snyder writes the fact that LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony have become free agents makes the NBA offseason "a lot more interesting, filled with drama, suspense and intrigue that otherwise wouldn't exist." The Bulls, Rockets, Clippers, Lakers and Cavaliers all can "fantasize about landing James and Anthony, giving everyone else plenty to talk about" (WASHINGTON TIMES, 6/26). In Akron, George Thomas writes under the header "'Decision II' Begins Its Sports Domination" (AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 6/26).
GIRL POWER: In Boston, Michael Whitmer writes LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan “must be thrilled with what he has seen in 2014, because his tour is having the best year -- viewed from a US golf fan’s perspective -- of all the professional circuits.” Whitmer: “Imagine Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Bubba Watson, Adam Scott, and Sergio Garcia taking turns winning every week, at the expense of each other?” That is what the LPGA “has delivered -- at least its version -- almost every week” (BOSTON GLOBE, 6/26).
