Velasquez was hit in the second inning just below the elbow on a liner back up the middle by Washington’s Adam Eaton.

Snellings: It all comes down to the ring. If LeBron leads the Lakers to a title, then it is a huge benefit to his legacy. This would be the third team he has led to a championship, and he’d have done it for the most glamorous organization in the league. But he must lead it to that title. Anything short of that and one of the most rabid fan bases in the NBA would be disappointed and the King’s legacy would be tarnished in ways it wouldn’t have been had he stayed in Cleveland. This was a high-risk, high-reward move for LeBron, who has set himself up to be compared to the ghost of Kobe Bryant every day from now until he wins a ring.

I will just say stay tuned that next week there will be news on Kap and on Eric Reid, Geragos said on a podcast released Saturday, June 23, but taped before that. That’s all I can say right now. I’m going to say, as you’re listening to this, there will be news next week.
Geragos likely wasn’t referring to the news that the NFL hopes to short-circuit the entire case via a summary judgment motion (more coming on what that means). So the questions remain: Where is the news? And who, if anyone, is going to dime out the NFL?
