Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (6/8/2018)
It’s been a pretty entertaining NBA Finals, if you’re a fan of the Golden State Warriors or any of its players. The talk is already turning to where will LeBron play next. I seriously doubt he is coming back to Miami. I also think it’s more likely than not that he leaves Cleveland. I would like to see him go somewhere that he can at least put up a fight against these miraculous Warriors. My wife’s birthday is this Sunday, which means my whole weekend is booked. No complaints. Maybe I’ll get out to the golf course during some free time on Saturday.
