My podcast subscriptions have gotten a little out of hand recently. I did so good at trimming them down last month, but now I’m subscribed to waaaay more. I’ve added a bunch of NPR, New Yorker, Vox, Economist, PRX, and a whole slew of others including daily shows………….June 25, 2019 ✖︎
Just overheard people talking about WhatsApp:
Isn’t that owned by Instagram?
Yeah, something like that.
🤦♂️ I know not everyone follows this stuff or even cares, nor should they have to in all regards, but it helped me realize how outside the norm the bubbles I exist in are, especially in terms of caring about things like privacy. It’s not that I didn’t know this, and it’s surely true for all aspects/topics along the political spectrum, but it’s a good reminder to see it up close once in awhile.June 20, 2019 ✖︎
With the first round over and seven picks until the 38th for Chicago, there are three guys still on the board I targeted for this pick: KZ Okpala, Zypan Cheatham, and Nicolas Claxton. I had Shamorie Ponds as a wildcard if the Bulls couldn’t get their PG in the first round.June 20, 2019 ✖︎
Trae, Huerter, Cam, Collins, and Hunter. Coby, LaVine, Porter Jr., Lauri, and Carter Jr. Lonzo, Jrue, Ingram, Zion, and Hayes. Some exciting young teams. On top of that, we still have the young Kings and Nets plus Luka/Kristaps and Ja/JJJ. Lots to look forward to on League Pass next season.June 20, 2019 ✖︎
And just after I publish my draft preview, Atlanta trades for the fourth pick. Luckily, it looks like they are targeting De’Andre Hunter, which should all but gurantee White falls to Chicago at seven. NOLA picks up 8, (not 10,) 17, 35, and gets off Solomon Hill’s contract.June 20, 2019 June 20, 2019 June 18, 2019 ✖︎
📌 For My Father - By Coby White | The Players TribuneJune 18, 2019 ✖︎
I’d love to see Griezmann at Liverpool, but I’d want his role to align more with how he played for France than for Atletico, allowing him to share the field with Salah, Mane, and Firmino. Keeping the three-headed monster, Griezmann plays as an attacking midfielder, allowing him to control the possession attack, with Fabinho and Wijnaldum as the defensive midfielders in front of Alexander-Arnold, van Djik, Gomez1, and Robertson.
yes Gomez, not Matip. I thought Liverpool was much better with Gomez and his injury was a big reason why they eventually fell short, well, that and the lack of goals from the midfield. Problem solved with Griezmann, eh?↩

Amid news that Chicago (along with BOS and MIN) is interested in moving up to draft Garland, I’ve been watching highlights of Garland and Coby White and I think White is the better prospect. It’d be a shame if the Bulls gave up a lot for Garland when White could fall to them.June 17, 2019 June 17, 2019 June 17, 2019 ✖︎

💬 Politics this week from The Economist:

The New York Times decided to end political cartoons in its international edition, following the publication in April of a “clearly anti-Semitic and indefensible” caricature of Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, as a dog leading a yarmulke-wearing Mr Trump. Presumably if the paper ever publishes a reprehensible article, it will thereafter have to distribute only blank pages.
Well it happened. AD traded to LA for Lonzo, Ingram, Hart, and three first round picks including this year’s 4th… via Woj. Still a fun League Pass team with Zion, but probably more like the Kings than the Nuggets record-wise in the West next year.June 13, 2019 ✖︎

We get hit a lot. You’ve got two options. Go to the mound or go to first base. But don’t sit there and jabber. Make up your mind. Do one or the other. Right now, we lead the league in getting hit by pitches, and our guys go to first base.
