There’s also the whole MVP thing: Brady and Curry are the only players in history to unanimously win an MVP in their respective sports. Brady was unanimously named the MVP of the NFL in 2010, and Curry followed him up in 2016 by being named the NBA’s first and only unanimous MVP.
The two are also tied together thanks to Under Armour: Brady and Curry both left Nike to join the company.
“I’m a big fan of [Curry’s],” Brady said in the email. “I know how hard Steph works and how great of a team player he is. He must be really smart for choosing to sign with UA — nobody is more up and coming than them. Makes for a great team.”
Brady pays close attention to Curry. The Patriots quarterback also congratulated him after he won the NBA MVP last season.
Thanks to his MVP this year, Curry has now done something that Brady hasn’t: He’s been named MVP in back-to-back seasons. If Brady’s going to pull that off, he’s going to have to do it soon. To tie Curry, the 39-year-old would have to win two MVPs in a row between now and the end of his career, which isn’t going to be easy.
The Angels received some bad news earlier this month when they learned ace right-hander Garrett Richards has a torn ligament in his elbow and will require Tommy John surgery. The injury more or less sinks their season.
Plans have now changed. Richards will not have Tommy John surgery and will instead attempt to rehab the injury.
Garrett Richards has chosen not to undergo Tommy John surgery. Is getting something similar to a PRP shot today, shut down six weeks.

A fully torn ligament is beyond rehab, so Richards must have a relatively small partial tear, otherwise the doctors would not have recommended rehab. And that’s the important thing to remember here: The doctors recommended rehab. Richards isn’t making this decision on his own.
“It was really cool,” Tannehill said. “A guy that had his career, the living legend he is, coming off a Super Bowl winning season — it was really cool just to be able to sit and pick his brain about things he’s done in this offense and football things in general: snap counts, things you like, the way you want guys to run routes, little details about the game. We really just got to talk the game, which is something we both love.”
Apparently they didn’t get too much into the nitty, gritty details of the offense, though.
