In 1782, Thomas Jefferson wrote,

"I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His Justice cannot sleep forever." hmmm....



"For I know that my redeemer liveth. and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the Earth."

Job: 19: 25 (KJV)

“As a blind man has no idea of colours, so have we no idea of the manner by which the all-wise God perceives and understands all things … We know Him only by His most wise and excellent contrivances of things and final causes; we admire Him for His perfections, but we reverence and adore Him on account of His dominion, for we adore Him as His servants.”
- Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1726)
"It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor."
- George Washington, first President of the United States  Beyond Today

NEW YORK (AP) -- LeBron James is on his way to Philadelphia, set to pass Kobe Bryant on the NBA's career scoring list in the former Lakers star's hometown.

It'll be another milestone achievement, but scoring has never been the most important thing to James. He prefers winning, and it looks like he'll do plenty more of that with these Lakers.

  Triple-double for LeBron!

James had 27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in his 10th triple-double of the season and Los Angeles made a season-high 19 3-pointers to pull away and beat the Brooklyn Nets 128-113 on Thursday night.

James closed within 17 points of Bryant for No. 3 with a flurry in the fourth quarter. He can pass Bryant on Saturday at Philadelphia, where the five-time champion was born.

"Any time I am linked with the greats or I am able to do something in my career where I'm mentioned with the greats is a pretty cool thing," James said. "But as far as looking at the scoring, I don't know. That doesn't mean much to me.

"Just the overall point of my game is what means more to me: being an all-around player, being able to be successful on the floor and being able to contribute to the franchises that I played for, the three franchises I played for so far in my career."

James has 33,626 points. Bryant finished with 33,643.

That was impressive!

  LeBron 🌪️ to the cup!

A back-and-forth game for nearly three quarters turned into a rout after the Lakers broke the Nets' spirits with four straight 3-pointers spanning the third and fourth quarters, extending a one-point lead to 107-94, and Los Angeles coasted from there.

Anthony Davis had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Dwight Howard finished with 14 points and 12 boards in his first start of the season.

Kyrie Irving scored 20 points after missing a game with right hamstring tightness, but the Nets lost their fifth straight. Brooklyn has won just two of its last 14 games.

The Nets were without backup centers DeAndre Jordan and Nicolas Claxton, leaving them without many options behind starter Jarrett Allen. But they struggled just as badly guarding the perimeter. Los Angeles was 19 of 38 behind the arc, with Nets coach Kenny Atkinson

saying his players were so worried about James that they left guys open outside.

"He started making shots and guys are just, they don't want to see him score again and they help too much," Atkinson said. "I would say there's 10, 12 plays where we helped too much and you make one false step with a great passing team like them, they make you pay."

The Lakers led 38-35 after one, before both teams made seven 3-pointers in the second. Howard went 4 for 4 for eight points in the period, helping the Lakers take a 75-70 lead to halftime.

Danny Green made three 3s in the first four minutes of the third, pushing the lead to 88-75, but the Nets had it down to 95-94 after a 3-pointer by Irving with 49 seconds remaining. But then Davis and Rajon Rondo hit 3s before Jared Dudley, who played in Brooklyn last

season, hit one from near the Nets' bench to beat the buzzer and make it 104-94.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope made it four straight 3s to open the fourth, extending the lead back to 13. James then scored eight in the period before taking a seat for good.

 Klay Thompson’s jersey retired by Washington State men's basketball program

Thompson becomes 7th Washington State athlete to have number retired

Official release

SAN FRANCISCO -- Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson’s No. 1 was retired by Washington State University men’s basketball program during a ceremony in Pullman, Wash., earlier today.

In just three seasons at Washington State, Thompson became WSU’s third all-time leading scorer (1,756 points), averaging 17.9 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.33 steals in 98 games, while connecting on a school-record 242 three-pointers. He was the 11th

overall pick by the Golden State Warriors in the 2011 NBA Draft, becoming just the second Cougar to be chosen in the first round.

As a Cougar, Thompson earned Pacific-10 Conference honors all three seasons at WSU, all-freshman accolades as a rookie and First-Team All-Pac-10 as both a sophomore and junior. As a junior, Thompson led the Pac-10 and ranked 11th in the nation in scoring with

a 21.6 points per game average, while also leading the conference in three-pointers made (98) and breaking four WSU single-season records, including points (733), and three-point field goals made.

 What a moment.

Thank you, @KlayThompson. |

 The No. 1 jersey worn by Thompson during his three seasons in Pullman will join the No. 55 worn by Steve Puidokas as the only two retired jerseys in the WSU men’s basketball program. Thompson also becomes just the seventh person at WSU to have his number

retired in any sport, joining football’s Mel Hein and Jack Thompson, and baseball’s Buck Bailey, Bobo Brayton and John Olerud.

As a member of the Golden State Warriors, Thompson has helped lead team to three NBA titles and five-straight appearances in the NBA Finals (2015-19). Thompson owns career averages of 19.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 33.1 minutes per game over

eight seasons, all with Golden State. His 1,798 three-point field goals made are 18th all-time in NBA history and he owns the NBA single-game record with 14 three-pointers made established in 2018.

Number one, @KlayThompson

 He has been selected an NBA All-Star five times and twice named to the All-NBA Third-Team. In 2018-19 he was selected to the NBA All-Defensive Second-Team and won the NBA Three-Point Contest as part of the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend. In addition, he was

named to the All-Rookie First Team in 2012.

Thompson has won gold medals at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the 2014 World Cup and 2009 FIBA Under-19 World Championship while representing USA Basketball.

Earlier this season, Thompson’s teammate Draymond Green had his No. 23 jersey retired by the Michigan State men’s basketball program during a ceremony in East Lansing, Mich. on December 3, 2019.
