Meanwhile, the Boston Globe's Bob Ryan said of Bud Selig's stance on the anticipated punishment of Alex Rodriguez: "This is a vindictive thing on the part of the commissioner, who is trying to protect himself and clean up his own legacy because he's responsible for what happened in the nineties." Ryan said Selig is "going to make A-Rod the example" (“The Sports Reporters,” ESPN, 8/4).
NOT FIT FOR A KING? ESPN’s Howard Bryant on the idea that Heat F LeBron James could be the next president of the NBPA: "He did not even for one day attend college, and yet thinks he should represent his fellow players in negotiating a collective bargaining agreement.

Bryant added, "It’s admirable that James may be thinking beyond himself. But wanting the job is one thing, being over-matched at the bargaining table is something else" (“The Sports Reporters,” ESPN, 8/4).
