The Man Behind MJ’s First Nike Deal Says LaMelo & BBB Can Revolutionize the NCAA
With the exception of perhaps LeBron James, there’s never been a 16-year-old athlete with a large enough platform to realistically sell a sneaker like LaMelo Ball. And as a result, there’s been no pre-collegiate basketball player in a position to challenge the NCAA like the youngest Ball brother.
Sonny Vaccaro, the marketing legend known for his time at Nike, where he signed Michael Jordan to his first sneaker deal, says LaMelo is the perfect person to challenge the NCAA’s amateurism guidelines with the release of his new sneakers. Should the NCAA rule LaMelo ineligible because of his financial relationship with Big Baller Brand and his signature sneaker, the Melo Ball 1, the Ball family could sue the NCAA, and turn college sports on its head.
Dodgers Advance to World Series over Cubs Behind Enrique Hernandez’s 3 HRs
For the first time since 1988, the Los Angeles Dodgers will play in the World Series after defeating the Chicago Cubs, 11-1, in Game 5 of the 2017 National League Championship Series at Wrigley Field.
Enrique Hernandez was the offensive hero for Los Angeles with three home runs and seven RBI, including a grand slam in the top of the third inning. Clayton Kershaw exorcised his playoff demons with one run allowed on three hits with five strikeouts over six innings to lead the Dodgers to their first NL pennant in 29 years.
Kershaw’s playoff shortcomings have been well-documented. Coming into Thursday’s game, the three-time NL Cy Young winner had a 4.57 ERA with 15 home runs allowed in 100.1 innings over 20 starts in the postseason.
