ESPN reports that the NBA’s board of governors and players are currently meeting somewhere within the bubble to discuss how the league’s postseason will continue.
From ESPN’s report on the historic moment: “The meetings will come after a historic day in the NBA, as all three playoff games scheduled to be played Wednesday — the Milwaukee Bucks vs. the Orlando Magic, the Houston Rockets vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Lakers vs. the Portland Trail Blazers — were postponed after the Bucks chose not to play Wednesday afternoon. Milwaukee is about 40 miles north of Kenosha, Wisconsin, the city where 29-year-old Jacob Blake, a Black man, was shot seven times by police on Sunday. Blake was shot as he attempted to enter the driver’s side door of his vehicle with three of his children inside. Video of the shooting was distributed on social media.”

- Texas senior offensive lineman Sam Cosmi made ESPN analyst Todd McShay’s list of top 2021 NFL draft prospects, at No. 10. From ESPN: “Cosmi shows some quick feet for a 6-7 lineman and can redirect really well in pass protection. He isn’t overpowering, but his hand placement is very good and he doesn’t fall off many blocks. As a run-blocker, his angles are strong, and he frequently walks defensive linemen off the line. Cosmi has 26 career starts, playing both sides of the line.” It’s also impossible to ever forget the play featured below.
