Question: will KD still be playing in 2027 and 2029? How about 2025?

In keeping with the times, the British royal family has announced that they are trading Prince Harry to a NBA Western Conference team.

By the time the final provisions of this deal are completed, I will be riding an electric AARP scooter with an oxygen tote and the Mets will no longer be paying Bobby Bonilla.

And Howard will still be attending Celtics games

Howard got traded in a final-hour deal before the deadline. He's rooting for the Orlando Magic now.

LOL. Poor Howard. Did Boston have to retain any of his salary?

I had a no-trade clause in my contract that allowed me to refuse a trade to anywhere that did not receive at least 4 inches of snow per year. Celtics were to continue paying my full salary, but since it was peanuts the Orlando squirrels were not happy. My side gig of Social Security, a small pension, and a 401K that I have been drawing on for 15 years and still has more in it than when I started keeps me upright.

My son and I finally got to last night's game vs 76ers. No Al Horford, no Robert Williams, Jalen Brown gone in the 2nd quarter, and they still win by 7. Blake Griffin starts and nails 3s all night (15 points), Derek White and Malcom Brogdon have 19 each, and White makes a terrific run-down block. Jayson Tatum is double teamed all night, gets only 12 points, but he has 9 assists and 8 boards. One great game for my first one in 3 weeks. Covid sucks.

In our regional high schools, the concept of continuing to do the same thing and expecting different results is being taught as the Doc Rivers Theorem.

I don't watch much NBA these days, but I did watch that 76ers/Celtics game the other night and it was a good one. Outside of the superstars, I don't really know who is who in the Association these days, but the 76ers Tyrese Maxey was fun to watch. He didn't score much, but he was all over the place and is quick as hell.
