The Eagles just handed out Super Bowl rings, and they’ve made some changes involving long-time staffers.
I think you get into that tendency where everyone is looking for that 18- to 19-year-old kid that can be the next Giannis [Antetokounmpo], instead of maybe taking the next — and I’m not saying Mikal Bridges is Draymond Green — where you’re taking a player that has been in school, is maybe a little bit older where maybe the upside is not there, Marks said. I think that’s where you get in trouble a lot, when you start looking at an age. Maybe an older player that you bypassed based on ‘you know what he is’ instead of a Kevin Knox that maybe you think you do, but are projecting out.
Knox said after a recent interview he feels he’s what the NBA wants — a long guy who can really handle the ball and shoot the ball and make multiple decisions.
Michael Porter Jr., doing a series of interviews to promote his new sponsorship deal, hinted on SiriusXM Radio he’s got a near guarantee from a club selecting high. If true, the Knicks could be out of the running. There’s some teams out there that really like me that are high up there, Porter Jr. said.
Winslow was arrested for burglary at a trailer park last week as well. Winslow’s lawyer and agent strongly disputed the charge with his agent saying that he was house-hunting for his mother-in-law. He was scheduled for arraignment on that charge on Thursday before the second arrest.
Wilkins also claims she worked hours — many of them in AT&T Stadium, team owner Jerry Jones’ $1.2 billion football temple — for which she wasn’t compensated, and that she wasn’t paid overtime for hours worked in excess of 40 per week.
She’s not the only ex-cheerleader on a crusade for change. Earlier this month, five former Houston Texans cheerleaders sued that team for failing to compensate them fully and for creating a hostile work environment. Former cheerleaders on the Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints have also filed similar complaints.
But this is the first time the behemoth that is the Dallas Cowboys, beloved as America’s Team, has entered the conversation. The organization’s cheerleaders make up what is easily the most legendary and high-profile squad in the NFL, and certainly the only one to have had two TV movies made about them (in 1979 and 1980) and to have had their uniform — that iconic blue-and-white vest and shorts look — added into the Smithsonian’s collection.
