Lured away meaning
Former NBA player and Hall of Famer Yao Ming, president of the Chinese Basketball Association, and Joseph Tsai, the new owner of the Brooklyn Nets, denounced Morey’s tweet, which has since been deleted. Several Chinese companies, including the sneaker manufacturer Anta, have either divested from the NBA or threatened to, while a Chinese television network decided not to broadcast the Nets-Lakers games. It was a difficult week for Silver, who has the unenviable job of trying to appeal to a major NBA sponsor and cash cow and also defend his employees’ right to free speech. Meanwhile, many coaches have stayed clear of the issue, including the Celtics’ Brad Stevens, who offered full support of Silver but nothing else. Steve Kerr and Gregg Popovich have expressed support for human rights but not spoken directly on the Chinese issue. There is a collective hush around the NBA. Silver, representing the NBA’s best interests, is hoping this situation blows over and … [Read more...] about NBA not looking so fearless in face of China controversy
Thirty-five thoughts on the Patriots’ 35-14 victory over the Giants … 1. I suppose a game in which you win by 21 points and still come away annoyed at how it played out is a sign that you have a very good football team. And the Patriots, now 6-0, do. The defense is spectacular, their special teams put points on the board when the offense was struggling to do it, and Tom Brady and Julian Edelman – with help from unexpected places – finally found their mojo in the second half. 2. But man, that was an annoying game for a long time. Frustrating. Briefly worrisome. The Giants were without arguably their three best offensive players, Daniel Jones (15 of 31, 161 yards, one TD, three interceptions) looked like a bewildered rookie, and yet the Giants – a team the Patriots always want to maul under any circumstances – managed to hang around even into the fourth quarter. 3. The Patriots were so disjointed in the first half that one couldn’t help but … [Read more...] about 35 thoughts on the Patriots’ disjointed win over the Giants

Hi Meredith, I'll make things short and quick. I was in a stagnant relationship for two years with a man who put up walls and strung me along, and I kept letting it happen. Eventually I couldn't take it anymore. Four months ago, it ended, finally, but it felt like it was over long before there was an official breakup. Within one month of really disconnecting from this ex (blocking him, etc.), I met a man – a wonderful man, who is communicative, inspiring, funny, and respectful. In some ways, based on interests, he is almost like the male version of me. We click in so many ways. I'm spending a ton of time with him and I want to see him even more. I loved my ex. I still love him because deep down, inside what could be an awful shell, he is a good man. Just not the man for me. That's why it's so surprising that I've completely fallen for this new man and can't fight it – and don't want to. I want something to be wrong, because I'm so smitten. Is it too soon to be this … [Read more...] about Is it too soon to be this smitten?
