'No' For MJ: So the Bucks will not be sold to Michael Jordan. One of the more interesting plotlines of the otherwise boring draft was whether MJ was really behind the Bucks' moves. I guess we know the answer to that now.

Kidd Narrows The Field: So Jason Kidd has it down to four teams: the Spurs, the Nets, the Mavs (if they sign Zo) and the Nuggets (!). From the sound of things...say good-bye, NJ. He plans to visit Texas and make a decision by the middle of July.

MNF's New Sideline Reporter: Lisa Guerrero of FOX Sports? What, are they going to add Tom Arnold to the booth next? I know we're not supposed to take sideline reporters seriously, but c'mon...

Are Fans Still Allowed To Boo?: More and more athletes are slamming fans for their booing. Even Sammy Sosa! Good column on when to boo and when not to boo, and some funny jokes after that rant. For example: "Cell phone maker Nextel has replaced R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. as the sponsor of NASCAR’s championship series. Racing officials also announced this week that brain had replaced lung as the Official Cancer of NASCAR…"

Could Marketing Defense Save Hockey?: Interesting concept in this column: that the NFL and MLB both successfully market defensive players (pitchers in baseball), but that the NHL has squandered the chance to market guys like Brodeur and Pronger because it pours millions into Mario and the other offensive "stars" in the league. In any event, it's odd that Bettman is now defending 2-1 games after years of slamming them.

ESPN's most underrated athletes.

Mashburn underrated? Puh-lease. Completed overrated. If you're talking NBA, I say Stephen Jackson, formerly of the Spurs.

JKidd says he won't stay with the Nets ... unless they dump coach Byron Scott.

I think there's a side to this story that hasn't been given much thought, which is that the Nets could sign Kidd, sign Zo, fire Byron and then hire Rick Rick Carlisle, a former Nets assistant coach. Does that make them a better team? Yes.
