After watching the last two seasons with all of the drama and Kiki factor, it's all pro wrestling.

The drama is an LFO controlled by the league, and the athletes are obviously pawn players playing their role. You see it when the defense stands back at certain times and lets the offense have their "pro-wrestling throw me over the rope" moments.

I'm reallocating my sports viewing portfolio -- all of my future NBA time is going 33/33/33 to MLB, NHL and NCAA BB.

"We have something up our sleeve." I hope so. It will be interesting to see if Morey can make something pan out. The Rockets were really good this season, but they need more top-level talent, and they faded down the stretch. I hate to lose Pat Beverley, but he might need to go in order for them to have room for some other top players. What interests me is that they are looking at point guards like Paul and Lowrey. Will those guys be willing to work in a system where Harden is the ball handler? idk

As far as Dwight being traded by his "home team," sigh. He's a nice guy, but it seems he can't make himself fit or be wanted anywhere despite his talents.

Rockets reach agreement to trade for Chris Paul shocked

I'm not loving losing Pat Beverley, but we will see how it shakes out. I don't know how good CP3's D is.

Pacers trade Paul George to Thunder for Victor Oladipo, Domantas Sabonis Whew. That was a close call. Wait, did we not want him to go to a team like the Thunder? idk wink

Hey, maybe we at The Keyboard Corner can pool our money together and buy them. I've got $5!

Nah...if we ended up buying the team the organization would dissolve into a shambles as we fought with each other over who got to call the songs played during breaks. Unless, that is, whoever contributed the most got to call the shots. In that case put me down for six-fitty.... smile

Tilman Fertitta to buy Rockets for record $2.2 billion shocked

Apparently he tried to buy the Rockets in 1994 for $81 million, losing out to Les by $4 million.

I'll save everyone some time. Skip watching the upcoming NBA season and spend more time playing keyboards. The Warriors will certainly repeat. smile

thats excellent advice . I think the Dubs might manage to lose a game or 2 just to keep it interesting. Otherwise, perfecting Hanon or new material is a good use of time smile

If any of you are married, organizing the garage or washing the wifes car can also pay benefits
