Mac Engel: He is the best soccer player to ever come out of Fort Worth. But he couldn't stay.
FORT WORTH, Texas — Dallas-Fort Worth is loaded with some of the best soccer players in the United States, and you’ll find few to zero of them actually playing in Fort Worth even though this the 13th largest city in the country.Fort Worth parents and their children are all too familiar with the drives east associated with the sport.This city has traditionally been loathe to court pro sports because they are a sucker’s play, but a town this large should not have to migrate to play high level soccer. Youth soccer in the U.S. is a giant scam and it’s also not going anywhere.There is no reason why...

Second-round surprise: How former top recruit Nico Mannion can help the Warriors win immediately
Bob Myers was surprised Nico Mannion was available. On the clock with the No. 48 pick of Wednesday night’s draft, the Warriors’ general manager quickly made his selection, excited to nab a point guard he had hoped, but didn’t expect, would fall to him.“We had him higher than 48 for sure,” Myers said during a news conference Thursday.One of the top recruits in his high school class, Mannion averaged 14 points and 5.3 assists per game last season as a freshman at Arizona.

Patrick Reusse: Ricky Rubio's return: Timberwolves order a second helping of Rickymania
MINNEAPOLIS — The Timberwolves were so excited to hire David Kahn to run their floundering hoops club in May 2009 that he was given the title as “president” of basketball operations.A month later, Kahn had back-to-back early selections in the NBA draft. He took point guard Ricky Rubio from Spain at No. 5, followed by point guard Jonny Flynn from Syracuse at No. 6.In classic second-guessing, there has been a degree of criticism aimed at Kahn for selecting Flynn and leaving another point guard, Steph Curry, to be taken at No. 7 by Golden State.The problem with Rubio was that he was 18 when draft...
