Chief Justice Roberts’s lifelong crusade against voting rights, explained

  Chief Justice Roberts’s lifelong crusade against voting rights, explained He has fought to undermine voting rights his entire career.It was 1981. Roberts had just completed a prestigious clerkship with Justice William Rehnquist — then the most conservative judge to serve on the Supreme Court in decades — and, as an aide to Attorney General William French Smith, Roberts was tasked with making the case against one of the most consequential voting rights laws in the nation’s history.

The NBA on Saturday released the official voting results from all the awards. One voting result that stood out was Taylor’s All-NBA ballot.

The ESPN reporter omitted Anthony Davis from her list. She even voted for Joel Embiid and Bam Adebayo at center over Davis. That made it pretty clear that she had just flat-out forgot about the Los Angeles Lakers big man.

Frank Vogel: Lakers may start Dwight Howard in Game 2

  Frank Vogel: Lakers may start Dwight Howard in Game 2 Howard proved to be a difference-maker in Game 1, posting 13 points, three rebounds and two blocks in just 16 minutes. The reasoning makes sense. Howard is a vertical threat who makes life difficult for Nikola Jokic with his rolls to the rim. On the other end, he is also a slightly more disciplined and versatile defender than McGee is.Howard admitted he had a hard time with his limited minutes last series. Now however, it looks like he could really be getting his moment to shine.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

After receiving attention for the issue, Taylor admitted that she had made a “mistake.”

The rest of Taylor’s ballot made plenty of sense. Here is what she had:

1st team: James Harden, LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nikola Jokic

2nd Team: Luka Doncic, Damian Lillard, Jayson Tatum, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid

3rd Team: Chris Paul, Jimmy Butler, Khris Middleton, Pascal Siakam and Bam Adebayo

Leaving Davis off seemed like a clear oversight, because there is no way she would have Adebayo ahead of him.
