Although Thomas Tull's group has added Tony Gwynn and Phil Mickelson as a piece of the Peter O'Malley effort, Steven Cohen remains the frontrunner in bidding for the San Diego Padres.

" That uncertainty also applies to the New York Knicks, who recently fired coach Mike D'Antoni . Jackson won 11 NBA championships as a coach — six with the Chicago Bulls and five with the Lakers.
