Spurs’ Tim Duncan Retired, UFC Sold For $4Bill, Stanton Makes History In HR Derby


Tim DuncanAfter 5 NBA Championships and 19 years with the San Antonio Spurs, Tim Duncan is retiring. The soon to be Hall of Famer was awarded 3 NBA MVP Finals trophies in his time with the Spurs. The team grabbed him with their #1 pick in the 1997 draft and never looked back. Duncan is only one of 3 players to stay with a team for at least 19 years. Kobe Bryant and John Stockton were the other two players. At 40 years old, Duncan holds almost every Spurs’ record and is known as one of the best power forwards of all time.


The organization which promotes mixed martial arts, the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), just sold for a whopping $4 Billion dollars. Considering the owners of the company bought it in 2000 for $2.1 Million, that’s a pretty good profit! UFC has grown in popularity (particularly with millenials) with breakout stars like Ronda Rousey.


The Miami Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton became a legend in Monday’s Home Run Derby (part of Major League Baseball’s All Star events). He hit 61 home runs in only 13 1/2 minutes, an historical feat.
