June 9th, 2021 features just one Second Round matchup as the NBA MVP Nikola Jokic leads the Nuggets into Phoenix for Game 2 against the Suns where they try to even up the series. Rangers ace Kyle Gibson, who is 9th in ERA (2.06), faces off against the MLB’s best San Francisco Giants (38-22) amongst a full slate of MLB games. As mandatory minicamps have started to kick off across the NFL, the Packers have started theirs without reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers.

See what happened in sports on June 9th last year, headlined by RB Todd Gurley officially becoming an Atlanta Falcon and the MLB agreeing on a July 10 opening day for the 2020 season (with many other details still TBD). This daily sports article includes real headlines only (no clickbait rumors), all of the best highlights, interesting facts from around the NFL, NBA, & MLB, the main games to watch, top performances of the day, notable birthdays, and a quick recap of significant events on this day in sports history.
