The trick is both in choice making, and knowing the players enough to decide which teams to bet on.

For fans, the joy i...

Kevin Durant and more NBA Off Season

Kevin Durant

So if you are a sports fan like I am, there have been many story lines you have been following through the end of spring into summer (NBA finals, professional golf, MLB ect ect). Since there is so much to go over let’s just latch onto the story that got me out of bed early in the morning on my day off… Kevin Durant and his adventures in free agency. So first and foremost I think he did it like a BALLER, inviting the interested teams to come speak to him while he was enjoying the off-season… in the Hamptons!
