S. P. N.'s Tim Kurkjian with a shortened season on the horizon Major League Baseball is taking the opportunity to toy around with some rule changes among those changes the National League will employ the DH this year and in extra innings a runner is going to start on second base to try to expedite the end of games that will not lead into the post season in twenty twenty in basketball the Milwaukee Bucks will officially get back together today they're starting training camp ahead of the NBA's restart on July the thirtieth today's also the day the players around the league have to inform their teams whether or not they're going to be making the trip down to Orlando the latest player to decide that he's going to set out his Lakers guard Avery Bradley Bradley started forty four games for the late show this season he's citing family concerns as the reason he's not going to make the trip this was a decision made really on behalf of their children ever they have three children a six year old son who has a history of respiratory issues and illness and they didn't believe he would be cleared medically to be able to go in the bottle Avery Bradley worried about leaving and bringing perhaps bringing something into his home coming out of the bubble and he just said as much as I love playing for the Lakers I want to win a championship I'm gonna put my family first and didn't want to do three months away from them that's E. S. P.
