After a two-week hiatus, welcome back to What I’m Watching! Here’s what I’ll be keeping an eye on this week:
Thursday, 6/22—The NBA Draft—7 p.m., ESPN
Dallas is slated to pick 10th, which is not only their best position since drafting Luka Doncic in 2018 but likely the best pick they’ll have for the foreseeable future. Provided, of course, that they don’t take Iztok Franko’s advice and trade their pick. He’ll have more leading into draft night; I’ll have something for you Friday morning.
Friday, 6/23—Wings at Sparks—9 p.m., ION
This is the first of a road two-step next weekend against the Sparks, who will be a little over a week removed from downing the Wings in Arlington. Will a Dallas squad struggling for momentum pick some up on the West Coast?
Sunday, 6/25—Rangers at Yankees—12:35 p.m., Bally Sports Southwest
The Rangers will have a tough test in the final game of this three-game set, with Yankees ace Gerrit Cole on the hill. How will the American League’s second-best offense hold up against one of the game’s best starters?
