After the first one arrived in shards and was returned, I can now finally savour ultimate success.



The first coffee was downed a minute ago.

Stockton and Malone were a scary duo. Their WS/48 are elite. Like PG and Kawhi elite. They both have better advanced stats than Pippen. But Jordan's are somehow on another level. GOAT.

So Lebum is trying to trademark “taco Tuesday”. Just when I thought I couldn’t dislike him more.

Spent the weekend with the family at the wonderful Samil beach, near Vigo, Spain. About an hour drive from Braga, Portugal.
Upon arrival, it soon became obvious that we were no longer in a country where football (soccer) is considered the only sport worthy of the nation's attention.

On the shore there were three regulation size basketball courts, with 2 five on five games in progress. They were mostly middle-aged men, many of whom were wearing NBA jerseys. I spotted a Pau Gasol's Bulls jersey. Kevin Durant GSW. An Antetokounmpo. A Lakers' Lebron James.

Many of the shops on the coastline were selling NBA Jerseys. I was hoping to spot a Raptors Jersey. This being Spain, I was expecting perhaps an Ibaka, or a Gasol Jersey.

Image

After much searching to spot the dinosaur, I came across two Kawhi Leonard swingman jerseys on the last shop at the end of the seaside road.
This IS the dagger. :hoop:
I bought the red one.

Chris Bosh was right, Raptors treated him well and he didn't win anything.

It was interesting that CC - who infamously shares an agent with Kawhi - to ask that type of question - i.e. "how difficult would it be to leave the Raptors after winning a championship?' And CB's response revealed stuff we didn't necessarily know before. Nothing about ESPN or smells or whatever. Great clip!

Pretty anodyne interview from David Stern here, but around the 7:20 minute mark there's an interesting take on the Raptors.

Marcus Spears chuckles forcibly when he announces that the Toronto Raptors won the championship, as if it was some sort of cosmic accident.

We've arrived but the people at ESPN don't have a clue yet. They'll get used to it eventually, once we stack up a few more trophies within the next decade. 8-)
