Ooh, huh, Cantona? Eww, Cantona!
The Warriors were never—and were never going to be—Kevin Durant’s team. That was Steph’s team. Always were, always will be. KD went there knowing that. After all, it was KD’s Thunder that had Steph’s, 73-9 Warriors down 3-1 in the Western Conference Finals. It was KD’s Thunder that had an eight-point lead, at home,… Read more
Amir Garrett’s that friend you’re happy you have but you kind of wish wasn’t your friend.

I feel your pain. Which sucks for me because I’m almost always joking.
This is textbook CEO politicking. Fire off an attaboy/girl email while simultaneously including a reminder that you don’t even know what it is they do on a daily basis. You see a bumbling dope, I see a Fortune 500 CEO in training.

That’s my only point. I’m not trying to paint her as a saint. I’m not even… Read more
Not necessarily. She could have been asked to recite the multiple ways in which it impacted her life, both personally and professionally. She could’ve been asked to do so as part of a lawsuit where her now ex-fiancee was suing the State of California for damages as a result of the accident that cost him his leg as… Read more
