A wife who is smart, fun, a basketball fan and puts up with me doing this blog.
That I got to go to John Wooden’s basketball camp as a child.
Pau Gasol’s 15-foot jumper.
That I got to watch Michael Jordan and LeBron James play basketball in my lifetime.
That anyone would trade Trevor Ariza for Brian Cook.
That Ronny Turiaf is playing professional basketball.
Getting to watch Kobe Bryant night in and night out.
Manny Ramirez in Los Angeles (even if he’s not back).
The growth of Andrew Bynum.
This blog, and most importantly the great group of commenters and readers that have sprung up around it, making this a funny and thoughtful place to spend my time.
More than anything, my daughters, who light up my days in a way nothing else could.
