Tiki And Tierney Weekly Rewind 6/22-6/26

JAY BUSBEE – 6/22/15
Yahoo! Sports golf writer

“It’s rolling. There’s no way around it. Golf loves this stuff. Golf is a sport built on superstars. It’s been that way. That’s why golf broke big in the 60s. It was Arnold Palmer and then later Jack Nicklaus. Golf loves to have that one or two superstars to look up to. And in the wake of Tiger, Rory McIlroy – who is doing it for the rest of the world – really wasn’t doing it for America. Spieth is the kind of golfer that can be that replacement superstar, that next generation superstar for America, if you will. So yeah, the idea of him going over to Scotland and taking the oldest tournament in golf, that’s going to be too much for a lot of people to resist hype-wise.”

Fox Sports NFL analyst

“There’s facts, and then there’s opinions. The fact is, Pete Rose was a great baseball player. Now, do you like him personally? Do you agree with some of the things he did as a player or manager? You might have an opinion about that, but to me, it’s about the facts – and the facts are he’s great.”

JON ROTHSTEIN – 6/23/15
CBS Sports college basketball insider

“The other three did not play in college basketball last year: Emmanuel Mudiay, who was supposed to play for Larry Brown at SMU, Mario Hezonja from Croatia and Kristaps Porzingis. Kristaps Porzingis is somebody who could go as high as No. 3 overall to the Philadelphia 76ers. He’s not physically ready to compete at the NBA level, but from everything I’ve gathered, this is the guy that executives feel has the second-highest ceiling in the 2015 NBA draft behind Karl-Anthony Towns.”

TIM HARDAWAY SR. – 6/23/15
Former NBA guard

“No truth at all to that. It’s just rumors. A lot of rumors happen (around this time). There’s a ton of rumors about somebody’s going to get traded here, somebody’s going to get traded there. It’s totally untrue right now, and that’s all I can tell you. Everybody’s been calling me. I’ve been telling them the same thing: It’s not going to happen. I don’t know where that comes from. I don’t know who said it. But that’s not true.”

STEVE NASH – 6/24/15
Former NBA MVP

“One, because you don’t know how healthy Kobe is going to be, and two, you don’t want to mortgage the future to give one more shot to Kobe, who, frankly, is just trying to get back on the court. I wouldn’t put it past him having a great year. At the same time, you never know how injuries pan out. So I think (that the Lakers), as painful as it is, should start with a long-term plan to try to develop some of these young players. Kobe can mentor them, teach them and be a part of that culture moving forward. At the same time, if a great opportunity came up to acquire an All-Star-caliber player now, I think the Lakers are the type of franchise that would go for it.”

BEN WATSON – 6/25/15
Saints tight end

“I don’t look at this as a moral issue like marriage or civil rights or human trafficking or abortion. I look at it as kind of like an American issue. We have people that are seriously offended by this emblem. Let’s put it aside. Let’s remember the history, but let’s not flaunt it in public space.”

PAT WILLIAMS – 6/26/15
Magic senior vice president

“So our coaches and their staffs are doing a lot of teaching, they’re doing a lot of educating, they’re doing a lot of life skills that we never worried about before. It’s just the nature of what pro basketball is. It’s not going to change. So last night really was a teenage draft if you’ve ever seen one.”
