It looks like the Houston Rockets might get Mello. So you think this is a good trade?

I’m not so sure myself. The Rockets are already very isolation heavy. Now they are adding another isolation specialist. Among Harden, Paul and Anthony, I don’t think there is enough ball for them to share. So it’s going to be everyone standing around, watching one of the 3 dribble dribble and dribble the clock down to 2 seconds. Then someone will have to catch and shoot 3’s in a hurry... I just don’t know...

Our Popeye must be smiling in his sleep now that the King has gone to the Lakers. I thought Leonard was also going to the Lakers. If that happened, they will be almost unbeatable. San Antonio did the smart thing of sending him to the East. But Leonard might eventually end up in LA next year when his contract expires. Then the Lakers will be a beast.

The Rockets needs another iso player in case Harden or CP3 gets hurt during a critical play off matches such as last year against Golden State Warriors.

Amazing score by Wayne Rooney and Acosta that helps DC United (US Major Soccer League) wins against Orlando at last minutes. The referee had to watch playback for complain that Acosta might had been offsite. Fortunately, they did it beautifully. It was a long pass and accurate head strike.

ASIAD 2018 Indonesia. Chinese Female Football vs Tajikistan Female Football, 16 - 0. I don't if it was China too strong or Tajikistan too weak but each goal looked too easy!

Probably both. Having said that I think no other teams in the Asiad have scored that many goals. Actually it's good training for China. Gives you a chance to improve your skills and techniques without having to be distracted too much by a strong opponent.

Edit: North Korea also have the same score, so more the latter than the former in reference to your question.

For men's football, when they ensure a win, they probably stop playing hard or exchange key players out to preserve energy or prevent any bad thing might happen but women's football will chop you until there's no more pieces to be chopped.

That also depends on the experience of the players on the Tajikistan female team as well. They probably have the talent but have not been able to practice enough together as a team.
