Congrats to Golden State. Cleveland next. So you'll have a wash between James and Durant. Can Kylie keep up with Curry? Is Love vs Thompson or Green a wash as well? Warriors are more talented, plus Durant is going to be playing out his mind in route to his first ring.

Two scoops of ice cream, or actions taken, leading nations toward the elimination of a growing and deadly plague, currently affecting 60% of the world's population -- What should we talk about?

shadow, normally I tend to agree with your most things and would even pass on commenting further but for your "by miles" add-on. All of us who debate past vs recent or even current players always have to factor in differences of all kinds, e.g. - physicality, training, competition, etc. That Jerry West was a better all around shooter? Perhaps. I could give a nod to Jerry over the fact that his 2-point percentage was just .005 lower than Kobe's while having to rely mainly on layups for his close/to-the-basket game. We all understand why Centers tend to have high completion percentages. Yet, if "The Logo" was the better shooter, how do you account for Kobe's better FT percentage of .837 to Jerry's .814? No need to cloud the argument by citing Kobe's many other gains - 20 vs Jerry's 14 years in the league, 3rd vs 20th all time scoring, 81 points vs 63, Championships, etc... I will give Jerry his due for averaging with 27 ppg. Only Surpassed by Wilt, MJ and Elgin. Still, the topic is the jump shot, and while JW might have had the more aesthetically pure shot, I give the vote to Kobe for delivering multitudes of highly athletic shots, while falling backwards with two defenders draped all over him.

Now THAT is impressive: "Myron Rolle, the former NFL safety and Rhodes Scholar, added to his know-how as an American Renaissance man graduating on Saturday from the Florida State University College of Medicine with a degree in neurosurgery. Next month, the 30-year-old will begin his residency program at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital."

Best Lakers jump shot? That, along with so many other categories...Kobe.

shadow, my memory bank visualizes Michael Cooper delivering a slightly more dynamic set shot than Magic's version. For real jump shots Laker fans had to rely on others within a long list of 339 players. Many forgotten names, I'm sure you would agree. Here are some of them: Nick Van Exel, Tony Campbell, Keith Erickson, Jeff Blake. And one of my all-time favorites. A guy who should remind you of your favorite player (Kawhi Leonard) Eddie Jones.

I'm not happy about the possibility that LaVar Ball stands a chance at being associated with the team.

Im not over the moon, but.....anyone other than Jim Buss has to be considered an improvement. Regardless, next year is all about getting their young core more experience and to see who is expendable.

Funny that you bring up Coooop! MC's shot was very much the same as how Ball shoots.

BB, just for the record. Magic Johnson is President of Basketball Operarions and Rob Pelinka is the General Manager. Kinda of similar deal the Dolphins have with Mike Tannenbaum/Chris Grier.

FZ, are you pulling out of the 305 completely or will you rent out your home and keep an anchor?

Also sad to hear that Chris Cornell committed suicide. Cornell had a very distinctive voice. Shame.

Simply put: the "establishment" is doing everything to overturn a duly elected President.

Of all his campaign promises, the moment he adopted the "drain the swamp" theme... well, that was going to be perhaps a mortally self inflicted wound. Consider that 96% of the people who voted in Washington DC this past Prrsidential election voted AGAINST Donald Trump. Think about that for a second. Many of these people hold high paying jobs in DC. They send their kids to expensive private schools and have to view Trump's threat to slash and eliminate THEIR jobs as a fate that must be stopped -- no matter at what the cost. Self preservation! The other aspect to Trump's smear is the fact that every media outlet originates from uber liberal precincts: The New York Times, Washington Post, and every single cable and televised news outlet headquartered in NYC. Not to be minimized by the entertainment industry located in liberal Hollywood and liberal NYC. Democracy is controlled by the status quo, corporate interest, globalism, and every possible "traditional" crushing means THOSE in control choose to use to maintain power. We have become a banana republic, albeit, with better cars.

shadow, may I recommend an alternate way for you to view Republican support or lack thereof. Start viewing it as the "establishment" vs gov-by-the-people.

It's hard for me to understand how so many people fail to see and thus misinterpret our current political reality. I and like so many others, place blame for this on the media; at least 95% of it, anyway. All of them who, increasingly so, propagandize a progressive agenda. Dad.

I know, I know. Just dreading what looks like an obvious direction that the Lakers are going to take. Don't get me wrong. Lonzo with LaVar is going to be ugly.

BB, if you've got any local influence tell them to pick Lonzo Ball. You guys already have a pretty good guard in Thomas and would be better balanced with a passing, defensive-minded guard. Lavar's baggage is overrated.

shadow, thatand the fact that Worthy just complemented Magic's fast-break game better than even Wilkins. That year the selection was pretty obvious.
