— Former MLB commissioner Bud Selig was voted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday along with MLB executive and current Braves president John Schuerholz. The two will be inducted into the Hall in July 2017.

They were voted in by the Era Committee on the the “Today’s Game Era Ballot” spanning from 1988 to the present.

Former players are considered for induction along with non-players involved in the game.

Others being considered for induction but who missed the cut included Lou Piniella, Mark McGwire, Orel Hershiser, Albert Belle and George Steinbrenner.

— Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis is the latest NBA player to weigh in on Donald Trump, but unlike others around the league Porzingis indicated he thinks the country should give Trump a chance as president.

In an interview published in Complex Magazine on Friday, Porzingis said he doesn’t know much about the current political climate but can relate to Trump’s situation of being doubted.

“Honestly, I didn’t follow it that much. I don’t really know the positive things and the negative things that this whole thing has but, anyway, you have to give him a chance, you know?” Porzingis said. “People are saying like [the] same thing with me — they booed me at first, you know? So you never know. You know, you have to give him a chance. [But] I don’t try to get involved in the political things too much, that can only cause trouble for me.”

ICYMI: Last week Dr. Oz explained the physiology of Rob Gronkowski’s back injury. If you’re still not quite sure exactly what happened to Gronk, here is a breakdown, courtesy of TMZ Sports:

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Like I’ve said, I’ve watched him play since I was like in eighth grade and I’ve been here for eight years. That tells you something. To get to see him do this, couldn’t happen to a better guy or a better player. Everything he’s done he’s deserved. He should be the face of this league with how his story, how he prepares — he’s a family man. Couldn’t happen to anyone better.” — Patriots receiver Julian Edelman, on Tom Brady reaching 201 career wins, the most for any quarterback in the history of the NFL 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: LeGarrette Blount (29), Jim Plunkett (68)
