Emoni Bates’ strengths are the real deal
Emoni Bates, widely regarded as the best basketball hope in the country and perhaps the number one pick in the NBA draft in 2022, surprised many on Monday afternoon when he appeared on ESPN and announced that he s was engaged in the state of Michigan. Chances are he can’t make it because he’s just finished his second year at Ypsilanti (Mich.) Lincoln High School and plans to start his father’s new prep school. Time is on Bates’ side and there are still many options on the table for career direction before he even walks on the East Lansing campus.
Because there is only time for Bates and sports fans in the midst of a pandemic, now is a good time to review some of his recent mixtapes to see what kind of generational talent Michigan State should hope for. .
Tim Tebow still considered for 60 Mets men
It’s been a while since we’ve heard much of Tim Tebow’s aspirations in the Major League Baseball, but they are still alive. New York Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen hasn’t shut the door on the possibility of Tebow being added to the team’s 60 players list. There are still 10 spots to determine who will join the Mets training camp pool.
He was at camp with us at the start of camp last spring “, Van Wagenen said. “He was sent to the minor leagues camp a few weeks later. But he, like many other players who trained in the spring for us, will be in considerations to bring back. But we didn’t make these final decisions. ”
Tebow turns 33 in August.
