  • Turpin leaves us while ESPN...

    Melvin Turpin left us; ESPN sells out to LeBron. Last week in sports was a Coney Island roller coaster.

    Baseball fans got Cincinnati’s Joey Votto onto the National League roster.

    Patrick Patterson’s debut to NBA summer league was stellar.

    LeBron James bought ESPN’s integrity for an infomercial. And, Jesse Jackson grabbed headlines and an hour with Larry King before Al Sharpton. Jackson called Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert a slave master and LeBron a runaway slave.

    Close to home, Melvin Turpin left us at age 49.
