LeBron, 'Melo ready for NBA

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

June 30
Dick's Stock Watch identifies whose stock is up and whose is down over the past week across the world of sports.

LeBron
Anthony
Carmelo

LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony -- LeBron and Carmelo will have fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Denver Nuggets really excited. They could be what Bird and Magic were to the NBA in 1979, giving the league a real boost.

Arizona Diamondbacks -- The Diamondbacks have won 11 in a row, and manager Bob Brenly's team has done it without Curt Schilling or Randy Johnson.

Albert Pujols -- Pujols has been a three S man -- super, scintillating, sensational! He's batting .391 after getting four hits on Sunday.

Gabe Kapler -- Kapler is finally living up to the potential he was labeled with earlier in his career. He went 7-for-9 in two games for the Red Sox, including two home runs, two doubles and a triple.


New York Mets -- The Mets have been an embarrassment, being swept over the weekend by the Yankees and dropping all six games in the Subway Series. Where is the real Roberto Alomar? What has happened to this franchise that signed so many veterans in the offseason moves?

Lleyton Hewitt -- Hewitt was shocked in the first round at Wimbledon. The top seed and defending champion lost to a qualifier who was ranked 203rd in the world.

Dennis McKinley -- McKinley, a fullback for the Arizona Cardinals, was released by the team after being arrested and charged with being part of a drug ring.
