This was in response to a Perkins tweet calling LeBron the most athletic player in NBA history.
Russell also added this.
Thoughts? Who do you think was the most athletic player in NBA history. Also, pretty awesome response by Russell, in any case.
Retail sales shattered already-lofty expectations for May as consumers freed from the coronavirus-induced lockdowns began shopping again.
The 17.7% headline gain including food sales easily topped the previous record from October 2001 and beat the 8% estimate from economists surveyed by Dow Jones.
Retail sales powered 16.8% higher from April, more than double the estimate of 8% from Dow Jones and reversing a 16.4% plunge from a month ago.
Edit: Dow futures up nearly 900 points
She was a bright star, she burned brightest and faded too soon. I've since had a son and our family has done our best to move on, but something is creeping back into my mind these days with the imminent release of The Last of Us 2.

I'm reposting from Crucible Playbook. I'm on console.
