(APCSN) Jose Canseco calls Barry Bonds' perjury trial in federal court "ridiculous."
Canseco says he hasn't started following the trial, but plans to keep an eye on the proceedings in San Francisco.
Canseco says Bonds isn't the only former major leaguer who has lied under oath. He wonders if federal investigators will pursue other ballplayers for the same crime.
Canseco says he doesn't know if Bonds ever used steroids.
The former AL MVP has kept his name in the spotlight since writing his tell-all books. He's competing on Donald Trump's television show, "The Celebrity Apprentice."
He also plans to play again this summer for an independent minor league team. On Saturday, Canseco puts the gloves on for another celebrity boxing bout.
Canseco hit 462 career home runs. He played for the A's from 1985-92. He was named the American League Rookie of the Year in 1986.
Warriors rookie Jordan Bell made an instant impact for the team this season. But as of late, his playing time has dwindled. In four of the Warriors' last five games, Bell has been inactive.
“It's just the life of a rookie,” Bell said to The Athletic. “That's what Steve Kerr always tells me. It's not because I'm playing bad. Just gotta be professional about it and stay ready. It's like being a freshman all over again.”
While Bell wants to be on the court with his teammates, what he appreciates most from Steve Kerr is his communication. Kerr is always honest about when he won't play Bell and he keeps the former Oregon Duck encouraged.
“He talks to me about it every time he sees me,” Bell said. “Lets me know I'm not going to be active. Keep doing what you're doing, you're doing good. But it still f------ sucks. You're playing well and it doesn't mean anything because you're younger. It sucks, but you got to be professional about it.”
Bell has played in 12 of the Warriors' 18 games this season. The 22-year-old is averaging 3.2 points and 2.2 rebounds per game over 8.3 minutes per game.
The Warriors bought the 38th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft from the Chicago Bulls and selected Bell. On Friday night, the Warriors, and perhaps Bell, play the Bulls for the first time this season.
