Michigan had a 2017 draft pick in damn near every professional league

Michigan folks can be, uhh, a bit full of themselves sometimes. But credit where it is due, because when you do something this cool it’s certainly worth bragging about.

Michigan swept the big four professional sports with players selected in each 2017 draft, but it bested even that achievement by adding two other sports.

UM has a men’s soccer team as well as a lacrosse team, and had players drafted in both the MLL and MLS drafts. In total, 26 Michigan athletes have been selected in drafts this spring. The only major professional sports drafts the Wolverines got shut out are the WNBA and the NWSL drafts.

But Michigan truly stands above here with a wide array of exceptional athletes across a ton of sports. Maybe the Leaders and Best thing isn’t so corny after all? (It definitely still is.)

All true. It turns out that Tebow really is good for the box office, so there is certainly logic to Tebow being moved up to the Florida State League. It turns out that Tebow is mildly popular in that particular state, which means he’ll make money for the St. Lucie Mets, who are owned by … the New York Mets.

Naturally, you’d look toward Paul Goldschmidt and production as a big reason why the Diamondbacks are currently where they are right now (and you’d be right to do so), but they’re also getting solid production from the trio of Jake Lamb, Chris Owings, and David Peralta. Plus, it helps that Zack Greinke has been pitching well. Robbie Ray has been keeping up with Greinke, the duo of Zack Godley and Taijuan Walker has nicely rounded out the rotation, and Archie Bradley has shined in the bullpen.

Arizona may not be at the top of the NL West, but there’s still a chance that a certain fan in Washington D.C. and the rest of the fan base in the desert will have good reason to pay attention to them for an extended period of time this summer.

Kristaps Porzingis: I hope to spend my whole career with Knicks

Kristaps Porzingis has further opened up about his love for the Knicks, even though the team has made headlines this offseason for all the wrong reasons.

The Knicks forward was in South Africa for the NBA’s Africa Game, where he gave some insight in how he has dealt with the changes and instability with the team over the past couple of seasons.

So far it’s been tough in New York, but my journey is only beginning and I hope to stay there my whole career, so as a city we can have some fun and win some games and do something big, Porzingis said, via NBA.com. For me, it’s now home.

The Latvian, 22, has been present when the Knicks fired the team president, underwent a new general manager search, and has dealt with the back-and-forth drama with Carmelo Anthony.

For everybody, a lot of things were surprising and a lot of things were unexpected, he said. We’ll see when I get there and start working out with the guys. We’ll see what has changed. It’s hard to say with everything going on in New York but once I get there I’ll see things more clearer.

As for Anthony’s role with the Knicks, that remains to be seen. Reportedly, the only way Anthony will opt out of his no-trade clause is if he is sent to the Rockets. But it’s no secret Anthony is unhappy with the Knicks.

He’s an All-Star, an incredible player and I’ve learned so much from him, Porzingis said. There’s still so much for me to learn from him. I would love to have him around and keep playing alongside him. But it is what it is. It’s a business. If it ends, well … I don’t know, it’s out of my hands.

I’m really thankful for these couple of years I’ve been with him, just seeing how he works during the summer. It proves he wants to win and he wants to be great. I’m sure he’ll make the right decision for himself.
