Dope Reads: Basketball and Tragedies

I wish I could tell you all of these pieces I found for this edition are happy-go-lucky. I wish I could tell you that everything is alright. I wish I could makes those for have suffered from recent tragedies able to not feel pain. But I can’t. I can share stories. There’s a cool Obama piece. Elizabethany went bar golfing for her birthday. There’s an oral history of the 2006 NBA Finals. And then there’s two pieces about the recent shootings. If you normally, skim over these or don’t read them at all, I ask that you at least read the 8th and 10th entries.
