This basketball league wants to beat the NCAA at its own game. It offers high school players $100,000 to bypass college on the way to pro careers. https://t.co/x78wNdpR9l

Fire up your thoughts on the NCAA and amateurism! The high school highlight powerhouse @overtime is making a run at the best 16-18 yo NBA prospects and offering them $100,000/yr in salary to skip college to play in a pro development league. @kevinmdraper: https://t.co/eOVIYENL81

Congrats and welcome to @nytimes, especially to @tracicarl, who encouraged me to go from reporting to leading reporters as an editor, then backed it up by hiring me as a news editor in Hawaii. https://t.co/aY5X9KKbRu

. @alanblinder and I with some hot clickbait for you: A long story about communicable disease insurance featuring spicy quotes like “It was one of the simpler claims processes” and “for a number of years, we have undertaken a risk management process.” https://t.co/wsSTqnb3M4

Pandemic insurance! Actually this story by @alanblinder and @kevinmdraper is quite interesting on the implications of the wonky realm for sports in 2021 and beyond. The NCAA got $270M, Wimbledon just settled its claim and the Olympics are a big question. https://t.co/yZD1AtVPes

Excited for my old friends that @annajobratton is getting promoted to AP's US enterprise editor. She's an incredible editor who cares deeply about thoughtful coverage and supporting the people she works with. More people will get to see that! https://t.co/9v8lldoz5F

A former coach of the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team was charged with criminal sexual conduct and human trafficking on Thursday. The coach, John Geddert, owned a gym where athletes said they were sexually assaulted by the former team doctor Larry Nassar. https://t.co/eDbzpmGcqv

It is quite obvious that Tiger Woods was seriously injured in the car crash, but this paints a pretty bleak portrait of what he is up against: https://t.co/lsFxk0QFeU https://t.co/wDUiC5ApI6

There’s trying to deceive antidoping investigators, and then there’s this: Russian officials invented fake doctors, fake medical certificates and even a fake hospital in a doomed effort to clear its star high jumper @NYTimes https://t.co/Z5uDWxC7LS
