Also, I said this in sportschat but this season is really exciting in the sense that I feel like pretty much any of seeds 2-7 in their respective conferences have a shot a losing to the Warriors and Cavs in their conference finals.

After the excitement of Russ and PG not breaking the All-Star scoring record the past two years, the way Davis did it was kind of a let down. Didn't get any of that tension or anything.

Also, all star sucked. All of it. There was nothing redeeming at all in there.

This Cousins Trade

Bad for the Kings: Cousins is a franchise player. The fans come out to see him put up big numbers and even get behind him while he is temperamental. The Kings owners have always been about big dunks, fast paced games, and filling up the stands. Losing Cousins kills this. I don't believe that they are suddenly building a new franchise. But if so, Cousins AVERAGES a double-double with 30 points and can throw the assist when playing against good interior coverage. He is not a shot blocker but his presence alters the way opponents run offense. Why not try again to build it around him.

The more I hear about the Kings ownership the more awful I think they are. For instance, there is a lot of history and background covered here. The way it happened, so close to the deadline, it was almost as if the Kings management felt Cousins like a cancer that couldn't wait to be cut out.

It can really only be put down to idiocy by the Kings. Either (a) not seeing Cousins' value or (b) conducting yourself in such a way that you poison your relationship with Cousins, a man who definitely needs to be finessed and respected. Either way, this is terrible, stupid and awful.

Good for the Pelicans: They get those numbers. They still have nobody else of value on the team except Jrue Holiday, but this is a great start. Next season, pending careful handling of trading and drafting in the off season, expect them to be well over .500 and definitely right up in there at the top four. You could even think about staggering Cousins and AD so that you have a go-to, clutch, big-man playmaker on the court for the majority of the game.

The hall of mirrors was cool as hell and he murdered so many dudes, I really liked John Wick 2.

Are you planning to go out? if so i recommend you also get down.

Timeout is useless. Ents24 has most concerts. There is good pop and classical and some jazz clubs but you have to pay to get in those. There are good stand up comedians, the most english is simon munnery. There are usually some good plays on in london, and there's always awful shitty trash musicals too if you're into that. There is a chain of cinemas called picturehouse that show the better films fairly cheaply if you like going to the pictures.

The museums in london are good and free. Natural history, imperial war, british, maritime. The national gallery is free, and good. St pauls cathedral is not free, but you can time it so you go for a service and look round afterwards. Most dim sum places in chinatown only serve dim sum at lunchtime, not evening. If you don't like craft beers, pick fullers brewery; if you do, pick pretty much anything else. Hip places to go out drinking: soho, the south bank, shawditch. The tower of london is fun but i don't know how much it costs since i haven't been for twenty five years. Go to brick lane market for street food.

The thames clippers is a water bus service with a bar, it is very good for tourists. there's a cable car over the thames from canning town to the isle of dogs, it goes high and it's cheap. if you go on that, and your plane comes in at night, between those two you can possibly skip the london eye and save money and queuing time. Climb the monument and imagine they hadn't been allowed to surround it with skyscrapers. every bus and tram and underground train and overground train and national rail train within london takes oyster card, just get one or use contactless bank card which costs the same. it is always cheaper than any other type of ticket.

ps. you're american right? If you see a black man in london you may NOT order him to carry your bag. That's what we have asians for.

I can also recommend the Musée d'Orsay and would have tried one of the lesser known entrances to the Louvre had I known about them at the time.

As for London, have a look at what music is on. At this short notice, most of the bigger names will probably be sold out, but there's plenty of options to peruse over here.

Also, just generally keep a Big City mindset in terms of theft and safety. (Apologies if this is stating the bleedin' obvious but) Move with purpose, maintain a healthy level of vigilance especially in touristy areas etc.

A factoid I learned recently from the QI podcast is that if you are somewhere that has a sign warning of pickpockets operating in the area, there will likely be pickpockets watching for people who instinctively check that their valuables are still safe, thereby giving away that they have something worth stealing and where it is.

Oh, and go out for dim sum in London. I don't remember the places I went to, but here's some recommendations.
