Breaking…Rockets to Trade Paul for Westbrook

Well that was quick. Reportedly The Houston Rockets agree with a trade with Oklahoma City Thunder. Point guards Russel Westbrook and Chris Paul will swap teams. This trade reunites Westbrook and James who were integral parts along with Kevin Durant when OKC made the NBA Finals in a loss to Lebron James and the Miami Heat.

Since the offseason rumors were floating around that Chris Paul and James Harden were not on the same page. Both have denied the rumors. Chris Paul who has had injury plagued season can’t be happy with this deal as he now finds himself alone in OKC. The Thunder fans most likely will not be happy either as this ends their playoff run.

Rumors that no one wants to play with Westbrook are also being spread because ehe averages a triple double for the past three seasons. Essentially stealing rebounds, which is ridiculous in my opinion.

Chris Paul may look to get waived and picked up by a playoff contending team that can afford him.

Lust 3: Day 10

Yeah, so today like always the word count is 600 words. This is day one of chapter 4 which also means focusing on the introduction/launch.  My total word count is supposed to be 6,000/70,000.

I’m happy to say that I smashed it today with a word count of 1,001 which means the middle and ending of the chapters can be short which I feel will keep the reader turning the pages.

Chapter 4 is narrated by David Bostick. He is one of the more reserved members of the Manan’s friends. He is somewhat of a coward, but he always faces his fears with a certain creative approach.  Other than Shantel, he is trained in both unarmed and armed combat.  He isn’t much of leader and prefers being part of the background.  Alhtough he does like being acknowledge. His personality is inspired by his need to survive and he’s afraid of rejection which is what causes him to help in situtations beyond his control becasue he doens’t want to look weak or let anyone down.

This chapter is about his reaction to Alex’s revelation and shows his willingness to face his fears.

So two more days for chapter 4 and I only need 600 more words. The chapter when it’s completed, will be posted on my Wattpad site.

Lust 3: Days 7-9

Okay so technically today is supposed to be day 9 of this journal, but it’s really Day 4. I wrote all of chapter 3 today and it’s hot of the heels of chapter 2. Now I know this chapter is going to be seen as the catalyst of the book for those of you who know about story structure. However this particular chapter/scene is inspired by the Ghostbusters setup which helps connects the main characters together in this world of spirits (Chapter 1) and humans (Chapters 2 and 3).

Also this is showing you what the present problems are for Manan and his friends. They now know a friend is dead, but they can see him. So now what? Before anything can happen they have to realize  they need a change, but before we get to that we need to do some more setting up because this isn’t their status death moment. Wait for chapter 4. (cue evil laugh).

Here’s the link to chapter 3

Lust 3: Days 4-6

Well I  had some serious writer’s block, but after going back and working on Manan’s background and the plot Chapter 2 is finally done three days later.  Manan who is basically the leader of this group of friends was pretty hard to write, but I think everyone will find the new revision better than his previous characterizations.  I also introduced another crime related to lust in “male rapes.” Since this is a rewrite I didn’t go into much detail, but I think it’s still works. Right now it’s about hitting my minimum word count (600 words/day, a chapter every three days.).

I will be writing chapter three tonight so stay tuned.

Here’s the link for the revised third draft of chapter 2.

Lakers Will Sign Cousins and Rondo

DeMarcus Cousins will be signing a one year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers. With Kawhi Leonard signing with the Clippers, the Lakers have resign point guard Rajon Rondo to a two year deal. Rondo, Cousins, and Anthony Davis all played together in New Orleans and will now be with LeBron James and Kuzma.

Paul George Traded to Clippers and..

3 hours ago ESPN Paul George will be traded to the Clippers and NBA.com reports that Kawhi Leonard will Reportedly sign with the Clippers.

This is great for the NBA as the Lakers will not be a superteazm. In fact looking at the teams everyone seems balance. The top teams if we go by superstar talents are

-Los Angeles Lakers: LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

-Brooklyn Nets: Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving

-Los Angeles Clippers: Kawhi Leonard and Paul George

The Golden State Warriors, Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics, and Philadelphia Sixers made deals that help keep them in the picture.

Now the NBA seems even more exciting. Last year Eastern Conference play-offs were more enjoyable as most fans expected the Warriors to return for their fifth finals appearance. With Lebron gone the Eastern Conference was left open for Toronto, Boston, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee or anyone who could upset those four.

Nobody expected Lebron to not make the playoffs with his team, but with Anthony Davis they will be a playoff team this year. What seed depends on how they build around the two and Kuzma. They are reportedly acquiring Jared Dudley from the Brooklyn Nets.

Fans can rest easy now. The biggest fear was that Kawhi would sign with the Lakers with Anthony Davis and LeBron James. Even the experts and their sources expected to happen. Kawhi opted for the less popular Clippers and one can assume that he hopes to deliver a NBA Championship there. The move makes sense to as Leonard is from Southern California.
