At the time of filing the report, DeOssie said he wasn’t sure if he was the victim of theft or what, but a neighbor’s find on the side of a nearby street soon during a morning walk offered some clarity — and half of a return.
I’m hoping I get another email from a neighbor, DeOssie said, but it’s been two months at this point. Some people leave coffee on top of their cars, I unfortunately left my ring.
The DeOssies are board members of the New Jersey chapter of America Needs You, with Kate serving as CEO and Founder. Click here to find out more about donating to the cause.
It’s a mentoring program, and I think at some point in everyone’s life they have had a helping hand along the way, said DeOssie, a Brown University graduate.
It’s important to give back: America Needs You is a great way for us to help those who don’t have a support network around them, so they will be able to be in a better place and achieve their goals.
Yes, the highly-recruited Missouri star could slip in the draft. The reason: An injury-plagued freshman season in the Big 12 that cost him all but three games. If Porter Jr. goes in the first eight picks, it won’t be a surprise. But it also wouldn’t be a shock to see teams scared off and choose a prospect that played more in college.
That could be part of NBA insider David Aldridge listing Porter Jr. to the Knicks as a possible Knicks target at No. 9.
The Knicks like their point guard group and think one of Frank Ntilikna or Emmanuel Mudiay will ultimately take hold of the job, with Trey Burke looking like he’s found a niche in New York as a backup. So even if Sexton is available, it’s likely New York will pass on him and go for the best perimeter guy left on the board. Either of the two Bridgeses or Porter could step in at the three right away, though each may have to play some four as well, at least at the start of the season, while Kristaps Porzingis continues to rehab his torn ACL.
Porter Jr. stepping in right away at the power forward spot, then eventually going back to small forward? Sounds like an ideal situation for a young, athletic player. If healthy, he and Kristaps Porzingis could create one of the most exciting pair of forwards in the sport.
