Instead of just a single-topic thread, maybe this should be a threat for sports news in general. It doesnt seem to be a huge conversational area here, but people might still want to talk about their favorite sports, the Olympics, cheating scandals ::) , flopping ::) , sandbagging  ::) , or whatever.

So, for today's sports headline ... Guess who’s going to the Golden State Warriors? (for a trial run anyway). They can use any help they can get, with two superstar MVPs on the shelf for who knows how long (& still with the team for who knows how long, if they become free agents).

Well, that didn't last long. Maybe being a superstar overseas is better than being a bench player in the U.S.

In other sports news, the Olympics will be here again before we can blink, & five new sports have been approved for the Tokyo games: baseball/softball, karate, skateboard, sports climbing, & surfing. One of those is the official sport of two U.S. states.  8)

One of the classiest members of the Golden State Warriors “dynasty” has retired after a career that was almost cut off before it even got going. Shaun Livingston was a schoolboy star who signed with the NBA right out of HS & was expected to have a fabulous career. But not long after, he literally totaled his knee – busted up or dislocated everything imaginable. At first, the doctors weren’t sure they could save the leg – let alone whether he'd ever play again. It took him a couple of years to rehab, but he worked his way back to active duty, played with several teams, & finally found a home with the Warriors.

He was a big part of all the championships & sort of an elder statesman on the team. He was also active in community service, & he donated $1,000,000 to his grade school in Peoria IL for a new gym & auditorium. He was always going back to Peoria to do charity work or give basketball clinics for kids. You never heard a breath of scandal about him, whether it be nightclub brawls, chasing women, doing drugs, etc.

Happy retirement, Shaun Livingston  :) (but he could end up in the Warriors' front-office)
