Good morning, Sports fans!   It’s your buddy Davey Mac here with a new edition of the Sports Report!   We’ve got the baseball!   The basketball!   The hockey and football!   But first!   Breaking news outta the NBA!

According to sources at ESPN…the New York Knicks have shockingly cut ties with General Manager Scott Perry.   This comes after a major surprise following a season in which the Knicks not only got to the playoffs…but won a series…making it to the Eastern Conference Semifinals.   They ultimately lost to the Heat…but it was pretty much recognized that the Knicks had a really good season.

While Perry isn’t getting fired…his contract is running out…and the Knicks apparently will not extend it.   So he’s gone.   Perry acquired Jalen Brunson…who had an incredible season…and also made some good deals like getting the likes of Josh Hart, Evan Fournier, and other role players who contributed well to the team.

He also appeared to be relatively well-liked…as opposed to other team presidents or general managers of the past with the Knicks (like Phil Jackson and Isiah Thomas).   In any event…while the Knicks’ future is bright…they’re now on the hunt for a new G.M.   Hopefully they hit this one out of the park and keep the good momentum in Madison Square Garden going.   I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents!

  • Yanks Beat Seattle---Judge Homers Again

    The Yankees won their fourth game in a row by crushing the Mariners last night…10 to 2.   Aaron Judge slugged his 18th home run of the season as he’s been on fire…in fact…he’s at the exact same total at the same point as last season!   WOW!   Rookie shortstop Anthony Volpe also hit his 8th homer of the year…and Greg Allen slammed his first home run as a Yankee since being re-signed with the team.   The Yanks are now 34 and 23…five games out of first.

    Meanwhile, the Mets shut out the Phillies…two to nothing…behind excellent pitching from Met starter Kodai Senga and the bullpen.   Francisco Lindor hit his 10th home run of the year.   David Robertson picked up the save…as the Mets improved to 28 and 27 for the season…the Phillies drop to 25 and 29.

    Staying with baseball for a second…released, former Yankee outfielder Aaron Hicks has signed with the Baltimore Orioles…who are in second place in the A.L. East…two games ahead of the Yankees…so this will be interesting competing against Hicks for the rest of the year.
