This old quote from Hank Aaron in The NY Times obituary just left me speechless. I had not seen this before. pic.twitter.com/Wdoj5li3Vy— Stephen Holder (@HolderStephen) January 22, 2021
As a child, Hank Aaron hid under his bed when the KKK stormed through his neighborhood.— Paul Hembekides (@PaulHembo) January 22, 2021
As an 18 year old, he left Mobile, Alabama with two sandwiches and two dollars.
He retired as baseball's home run king and died today a hero. So inspiring.
Iconic HR 715 Video.
I guess it was just those two guys who "mobbed" him on his way around the bases. But I can picture an actual mob in my mind!
Scully: "A Black man is getting a standing ovation in the Deep South."
Hank Aaron was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1982, named on 406 of 415 ballots. Nine writers did not vote for a player who had more home runs and RBI than anyone in the history of MLB, a player who finished with 3,771 hits, three Gold Gloves, 25 All-Star appearances.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) January 22, 2021

According to KC, the Bulls have no interest in trading Zach LaVine.— Josh J. (@JoshJBullsHoops) January 21, 2021
zach lavine the playmaker is a thing. he's averaging about the same number of passes per game (40.6, up from 39.4 last year), but his potential assists have gone from 8.5 to 11.1. the bulls are shooting 39.7% on 3s off his passes (38.3% otherwise). his jump dimes are kinda fun. pic.twitter.com/tpbWNkZ6zj— Dan Favale (@danfavale) January 21, 2021
