South Africa have problems of their own. Faf du Plessis is no longer the captain, their yesteryear legends are long gone, and their administration is in tatters. Furthermore, after a long home summer, their predicament can be put down in numbers: lost 1-3 in Tests, and 1-2 in the T20Is. There was a little blip, with a tight 1st T20I, in which they thought they shook the "choker" monkey off their back, only for the persistent ape to come salivating back in the two remaining T20Is.

Not now, anyway. Aldridge has also never been the kind of guy who courts the spotlight or has seemed attracted to a big market for a big market’s sake, so a pitch centered around that aspect of the Lakers wouldn’t be that effective with him. Multiple reports say he’s still going to take the rest of his scheduled meetings before deciding, but the smart money is on San Antonio at this point. They have the money after trading Tiago Splitter, and he will not find a better basketball situation anywhere. … [Read more...] about Report: LaMarcus Aldridge rules out Lakers in free agent decision
