>> of course is always taking the high road and with his departure, of course that leaves a vacancy. to say the least. a huge vacancy. many will compete and we will see. it will take a village i think to re-create what he did but one of the guys, alec work with these highlights with the cavaliers, he's one guy who could step up. remember this, back in 2011 he was picked just one slot after ty thompson in the 2011 draft. in 2014, alec burke signed a $42 million extension with utah.

so many things he could play. and he talked today about some of the reasons he agreed to sign with golden state on a one year veteran minimum deal. >> it is a collective effort. but i saw that and i felt it was the opportunity and i chose the opportunity, took the opportunity plate playing basketball the fans are amazing. that is pretty much it. >> center court at wimbledon. i watched most of this match. rafael nadal, king of the clay found himself on grass. at center court against 38-year- old roger federer. who seems to have found a fountain of youth today. he hit another gear dominating the spaniard in four sets. federer in search of his ninth singles title at wimbledon which would be a record. 14 aces to differentiate himself with the spaniard today.
