Stock Watch: FAST-GLANCE WEEK IN REVIEW
May 23, 2005 | Dick's Stock Watch provides a fast-glance review of the past week in the world of sports, charting whose stock is up and whose is down ...
STOCK UP: Finally, it's Miller's time to retire
Reggie Miller Reggie, Reggie, Reggie! Reggie Miller was a class act as he played all 18 of his NBA seasons with the Pacers. He enjoyed a classy farewell when Pistons coach Larry Brown called timeout late in Detroit's series-clinching Game 6 victory in the Eastern Conference semifinal Miller received a standing ovation. Now Reggie should become a broadcaster, but just don't take my job!
Tim Duncan, Tony Parker Duncan and Parker offset Amare Stoudemire and Steve Nash as the San Antonio Spurs won Game 1 of the Western Conference finals on the road vs. the Phoenix Suns.
New York Yankees The Yankees are 12-2 in their past 14 games. The Bronx Bombers took two of three from the New York Mets at Shea over the weekend. The Yanks will be in first place by the Fourth of July.
Afleet Alex The horse survived a scare when he clipped heels with Scrappy T, but jockey Jeremy Rose rallied his horse and Afleet Alex won by almost five lengths at the Preakness.
Kenny Perry The golfer won the Colonial by seven strokes.
STOCK DOWN: Golota falls in 53 seconds
Andrew Golota Golota lasted just 53 seconds in his three-knockdown loss to WBO heavyweight champion Lamon Brewster in Chicago Saturday night. Enough of the Foul Pole getting title shots.
Houston Astros The Astros have lost five in a row and are 2-19 on the road this season.
Giacomo The Kentucky Derby winner was never really in contention at the Preakness, though he finished third.
Los Angeles Angels The Angels aren't the same team with Vladimir Guerrero injured.
Dick Vitale coached the Pistons and the University of Detroit before broadcasting ESPN's first college basketball game in December 1979. Send him a question for possible use on ESPNEWS.
