the shadow knows, Wow! I haven’t heard that song since 1965. Reminds me of another song done in parody (not the Troggs) Wild Thing. It was in response to Bobby Kennedy doing his version of that song. This one by a political impersonator doing William Buckley.

Big Baby, Looks like your Celtics signed 7’- 7” giant, Tacko Falls to an Exibit 10 contract (whatever that means). I hope he lasts cause the quips and folderol would be unending. Sample: Tacko Bean Dipper, The Jolly Green Giant, The Big Cigar (store Indian), etc.

the shadow knows, This year’s US Open champion is deserving. Here’s a guy who went to a division ll school, Washburn, on a basketball scholarship. To hear him tell the story, on his team’s first game against division l Kansas, he was assigned to guard his opposite at point guard, Kirk Hinrich. The experience was enough to convince him to leave his track of pursuing basketball and accept a transfer on his junior year to Kansas and a golf scholarship, graduating and going on to professional golf. To quote one of my all-time favorites, Clint Eastwood - “A man has to know his limitations.”

BB, No question about it, I’m in complete agreement. Having said that, the road they took here was the only one available to them. Realistically speaking. Why? Because anything short of the Lakers signing a second superstar to join LeBron for the next campaign would have resulted in one miffed James. Given all the recent drama, such failure would have surely convinced him to bolt out of LA. You and I should agree that few if anyone would have wanted to go there “willingly.” That is, other than Davis, and who knows how he would feel after a one year rental to another team. Certainly James would have not felt good knowing Davis wanted in yet the Lakers didn’t or couldn’t make that happen. Give James some credit. He may have just known all along that others might have been reluctant to sign in LA but for Davis, and that once Davis is in others would then be drawn in. Would I have preferred to see Davis traded to another team guaranteed that he would sign with the Lakers as a FA in 2021 and not lose the five pieces they just lost? Sure, but I’m not LeBron.

Gee, BB. That’s exactly what LaVar said. You DO have something in common with crazy dad.

Currently, the Lakers have only five players under contract: PG Alex Caruso SG Issac Bonga SF LeBron James PF KyleKuzma C Anthony Davis They also have upwards of $32M in cap space, so let’s see who else LeBron wishes to play with.

Woodcock, Let me be the first to alert you of the fact that Anthony Davis is the heir to the LeBron thrown. He will eventually become the centerpiece of the Laker franchise. The only argument in question was whether or not to wait one year without having to strip the club of three young players. Don’t see anyone in this “NOW” generation waiting 10 minutes.

They can spend $30M on either Walker, Butler or Irving. Naturally, they will all take less to get last gasp players who wish to go to the finals before retiring. They will also have a so-so bench of three or four one year players. Caruso, Wagner, Bonga. plus whoever they get in the second round.

Looks like Kemba Walker will be their next addition. That’s 25.6 points added to LeBron’s 27.4, Davis’ 27 and Kuzma’s 18.7. That’s 108.7 points not counting whoever they start at Shooting Guard.

Big Baby, Any short, always entertaining disses over what promises to be a rush by talent to get into the new and improved Lakers?

LBJ, AD, Kyle Kuzma. Those are a formidable starting three. Add either Kemba Walker, Jimmy Butler or Kyrie Irving and they have the making of a new super team.

Oh, and on another minor note, the Lakers just picked up Anthony Davis without giving up Kyle Kuzma.

Woodland finds himself up one over Rose who is THE most experienced of the top four up on the leaderboard. Then there’s Koepka, who will be charging up those four strokes before the back nine starts. I’m seeing a three way playoff.

the shadow knows, Justin Rose ain’t no chopped pate. He’s won a US Open, placed second in both Masters and The Open, a third at a PGA and was until last week rated 3rd in the world. I believe he leads the PGA in putting, and Pebbles is all about who putts best.

Have to give credit to whoever scheduled the NBA finals. If there’s a game 7 it will be on Sunday evening at 7pm and not during the day. Can one imagine the conundrum were the final game of the season gets played at the same time the US Open is being decided!? Mickelson going mano-a-mano, final pairing with Woods both tied at -13? Oh man, would THAT be something.

the shadow knows, I don’t believe I’ve played San Dimas. I might have. But if I did it would have been a long time ago. Pretty much played practically every other public access course throughout SoCa. Palos Verdes allowed non member walk-ins on Wednesdays for like $30 then. Anyway, my employer’s after hours golf league played there and at Rancho PV further up the hill. Probably played both a combined 50 times at least. When I stop to think about it, I’ve been lucky to have played so much golf and on so many courses. - - - Tiger will most certainly be a threat this week at Pebble. Hitting the driver well is not as critical there. In fact, many holes will be teed with 3W. The emphasis will be on hitting crisp, accurate irons and especially, putting on its unique Post Annua grass. A Kentucky Blue grass that drive many pros crazy until figured out. The long hitters will not have advantage here so look for those who have done well there and players on a recent streak. Guys like: Kutchar, Day, Spieth, Mickelson, Scott, Casey, Rose, Molinari, Cantlay, and yes - Woods. Don’t see the bombers threatening this week.

Speaking of the US Open, keep an eye out for Phil Mickelson. This may be his last and best chance at achieving a career grand slam. He’s come close, but never won a US Open. Phil has always played Pebble well.

the shadow knows, Mr. Woodcock and I have talked about playing up at Pebble a number of times as a “bucket list” item for years. Just never committed. Now that I’m in Houston that particular bucket may no longer hold water. The two of us played countless rounds on pretty nice and challenging courses all around two hours driving time from LA. East, north and south. One of our regulars was La Purisima, north of Lompoc, just south of Hearst Castle.

The 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers is the only team who overcame a 3-1 deficit against the Golden State Warriors to win the championship. Ten other series are recorded where that occurred in various playoff series, but the 2016 above was the only Finals.
