    1. I used to think that I would want to head south for the winter in retirement.

      Now that I've worked from home, I realize that winter isn't bad if you can pick when to deal with the weather. I can shovel at noon instead of 5am.

    1. “It is illegal to install structures or art without authorization on federally managed public lands, no matter what planet you’re from,” the agency said in a statement.

      Bureaucracy: bringing the fun since forever.

  1. trying to catch up a little here on NBA doings.

    GSW traded for Kelly Oubre Jr, whom the Suns had just dealt to OKC in the Chris Paul deal. He comes cheap: top-20 protected 2021 1st (turns into Minnesota's 2021 2nd) and GSW's 2021 2nd, and they get a trade exception with it. So, they just picked up an age-25 swing man who averaged 18.7/6.4/1.5 last year in starter minutes for Phoenix for what is likely to be either a late 1st-round pick and a 2nd, or two 2nds. I'd say that is a pretty nifty move.

    elsewhere,
    it looks like Boogie Cousins has signed a 1-year deal with Houston for the veteran minimum. That's a great deal for Houston. Cousins is coming off three terrible injuries and is now on the wrong side of 30. But if he is healthy, he could be a major factor. His game never depended on athleticism anyway.

    OKC traded Steven Adams to the Pels as part of the deal to send Jrue Holiday to Milwaukee. OKC gets George Hill, Darius Miller and some picks. Pels also signed Brandon Ingram to a max deal. Adams, Zion, and Ingram is an intriguing front line.

    Lakers have signed Marc Gasol and are moving Javale McGee to Cleveland for spare parts (Jordan Bell and Alfonzo McKinnie)

    The Raptors signed Aron Baynes to replace Gasol. Whoda thunk that Aron Baynes would be making $7m-$8m per in the League? Wow.

    Woofs traded spare parts for spare parts. When you can go out and get a 31-year old, undersized center who averaged 1.8/3.8 in under 11 minutes per game as a 30-year old in the League, you gotta do it, right?

    1. I thought when the Suns had their press conference to introduce Chris Paul to the local media, they should've had the guy who plays "The New Chris Paul" in the commercials show up.
