Hey all,

 

I had a chance to go to Nick Young’s back-to-school giveaway at Robertson Park – he played 2 on 2 with kids – and after the raffle (laptops, iPads, etc.) – he took his shoes off his feet and gave to 8-year old boy – left the park in socks.

Which NBA Teams Have Trade Exceptions? 14 teams have total of 25 exceptions – including an oddity – the Philadelphia 76ers are NOT under the cap, despite only have $40 million in salary on the books

Which seems to contradict this – though it doesn’t but does but doesn’t:

 

Sixers, Bucks Only Real Cap Teams Left

(BTW – it’s about to become Sixers, Suns – instead of Bucks after the Caron Butler deal goes through)

 

I’m pretty happy with this next story:
