I don’t throw 60 pitches in any bullpen, Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price said. A former Cy Young winner himself, he has known Scherzer since their college days, when the two played together on Team USA. Even back then, Price could tell Scherzer was unique.

What will these rookies do for an encore?

The 2017-18 rookie class was one that will go down as one of the best we have seen. Tatum, Simmons, Donovan Mitchell, Kyle Kuzma, Lauri Markkanen and more all performed beyond what was expected in their rookie seasons.

Before his trade, George had told the Pacers that he planned to sign with the Lakers in Womens Eddie Vanderdoes Jersey free agency this summer. Nevertheless, Oklahoma City GM Sam Presti, coach Billy Donovan and Westbrook have made a strong case on a future with the Thunder and moved the franchise into contention with the Lakers.

George, a native of Southern California, and LeBron James are the focus of the Lakers’ free-agent recruiting efforts. The Lakers also are working to acquire San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard in a trade.

With Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid leading the way, the 76ers won 52 games this season and entered the 2018 NBA playoffs with the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference.
