BB, my son recently graduated Magna Cum Laude from UCLA, the wife did her Masters in Communications from UCLA and I frequently bought chips from the vending machines at UCLA, hahahahaha...

You're wrong. I always gave The Truth a pass.

Im sure Magic sees a bit of himself in the pick: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=67PQjiN4WQw

I actually liked Russell. He's going to shine for the Nets.

Please, let's not talk about wasted (DionJordan) picks! Again, addition by subtraction.

Of course it does, BB. Maybe not from a team standpoint, but it makes a big difference to me. I've always cheered louder for Bruins. Kareem, Wilkes, Farmar. Even when not Lakers: Westbrook. Davis, Kiki, etc...

I'm onboard with it, BB, and from a number of fronts. First, Ball is a Bruin and LA guy. I place his dad in the Earl Woods camp. Overtly zealous, but look at the results. Second, "addition by subtraction." Ball will be able to develop much faster without having Russell around to share the lead. Third, they got rid of that incredibly stupid contract they (Jim Buss) had with Timothy Mozgov. When you crunch the numbers you see that the Lakers are on the hook for $2M Given this move. That's $15.3M + $5.6M respectfully to Mozgov and Russell, versus what they picked up with Lopez ($22.6M). However, Magic and co. Would have been saddled an additional two years and $33M for Mozgov. All points considered, I like were they are. They have two of the last two year's overall #2 picks in Ingram and Ball, solid young support with: Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle and Larry Nance jr. And I really, really like the young center - Ivica Zubar. Toss in Brook Lopez and a few oldsters to keep the team blended and like I said, I'm good. Oh...let's not forget about that gain of $33M salary-cap relief to use to go fishing!

Jimbo, Funny stuff there. Gives new meaning to the term - pink dumbbell.

shadow, The "Frenchy" screwup Open actually took place in Carnoustie, where Jean van de Velde was trying to become the first Frenchman since 1907 to win the tournament. "Frenchy" had a three stroke lead going into the final hole and entertained a multitude of golfers everywhere but France, where his bravado (hardheadedness) crushed his dream.

shadow, Next up is The Open, or The British Open, as was once known before those tea sipping snobs declared that there was only ONE Open. The Open Championship returns to Royal Birkdale. Birkdale will actually be a return to England for this tournament after a two-year hiatus in Scotland. Just over 7,000 yards, it's a short course whose only defense is the winds. Advantage Texans.

Here's the thing...if you play regularly then you appreciate things like what Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas delivered on 18. Hitting two shots from 663 yards away, and in Thomas' case, making eagle! Well, that level of appreciation only comes from golfers. Sorry, BB.

BB, Consider yourself comfy hanging around with FZB at the 13th windmill hole, while banking it off the turtle's shell.

shadow, James always being compared to the great MJ, processing more physical gifts, but perhaps lacking that extra refinement that comes from playing, being coached, and winning at the highest level of college ball. Sour grapes Kool-Aid needs a new brand face.

shadow, Let's not overlook the fact that all these guys have the benefit of a thousand folks tracking where their balls land in all that rough. You and I would have to reload if we were to see our shots heading into the hay. Btw, Brooks Koepka now leads at -9

I take that back...Woodcock would have to hit from the red tees!

shadow, The weather forecast shows only scattered showers and a chance of 25 mph gusts on Sunday. This means that the only way the USGA can ratchet up toughness is by setting up really difficult pin placements. That's it. Given the football-field wide fairways, both Mr. Woodcock and I could hit 3woods all day off the blue tees and score respectfully.

Hehehehe...if they really wanted to make the course punitive they would have lined each side of the rough with Democrats and lefties!

Fairways are lllllll. . . W I D E . . .lllllll between all that hay. We are talking about the best players in the world, so no complaints here concerning the course or the player's ability to distinguish themselves. This, as evidenced through those graphics which show tight grouping of dots were the player's balls landed. Note the ideal placement. Unless the wind picks up, the Sunday winner will be in the - 20 range and from a four player playoff.

No interference in the elections, BB, it's all massive bs. All this is just about one simple fact, the media and its surrogate, the Democratic Party, lost fair and square and they cannot live with the fact that THEY find themselves out of power. This whole Russia thing, what Trump told Comey is so much to do about nothing that is completely insane. Outlets like CNN, and MSMBC have lost their collective minds and are inventing and reporting complete fabrications. Their hatred towards Trump is such that they've lost all sense of impartiality and objectivism. Really, really disgusting that our democracy has sunk to such a level. But since you asked, here is my Cliff Notes: Comey is trying to torpedo Trump in retribution to his firing. This though he (Comey), had to repeatedly testify that Trump was not being investigated, and that Trump did not obstruct justice. Comey's charge that Trump held his job in balance of his loyalty to Trump was vehemently rejected by Trump's counsel when said counsel later spoke at a presser. If anything, Comey opened himself to further disciplinary action by admitting to sending out leaks to the press. Unfortunately, the folks who obtain their news only through their obvious channels are being driven into a state of frenzy and are acting like sharks in a bloody tank. So unfortunate that such desperation from the left mandates actions to resist even when the greater good of America hangs in balance.

BB, while I make a passive and what should be, understandable support of the Heat; make no mistake. Just as in football, I support my team, division and conference. I'll root for the Western Conference over the Eastern one 9 out of 10 times and 10 times were the Heat to go up against my Lakers.
