Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about on Tuesday.
Ben Simmons shows off passing skills during pro debut. Simmons, the top pick in the NBA Draft, is a work in progress, with the biggest knock being his ability to hit outside jumpers. But the one thing Simmons is already gifted at is passing the ball. Simmons made his pro debut on Monday in a summer league game for the Philadelphia 76ers and immediately had fans buzzing with this pass between three defenders on a fast break.
Kris Bryant remains red hot on the Fourth of July. The seemingly invincible Cubs have cooled off substantially. After starting 27-8 and looking like they were going to cruise to a 110-win season, the Cubs have gone 25-22 since. But Bryant is one player who has not cooled off. Over the last eight games, starting with his 3-home run game against the Reds, Bryant is 12-29 (.414) with 6 home runs, 2 doubles, and 5 walks. His latest home run came in Monday’s 10-4 win over the Reds, and it was a bomb.
Iceland’s Cinderella run at the Euros came to an end, but their greatness did not. Iceland’s incredible run in the European Championships came to an end on Sunday with a 5-2 loss in the quarterfinals to the host country, France. But the fan-favourite had one last Viking War Chant in them when they returned home to a rally in front of thousands (via RT).
