If it's magic...

If it's magic, then why can't it be everlasting?
This, of course, is a line from a Stevie Wonder song on "Songs in the Key of Life."

Check this out:

If It's Magic Lyrics

All of which brings me to yet another sports post. The reason we are having so many is because we are in the middle of a sports painting (see below). When I start painting Fidel Castro, expect less posts from the pitch, so to speak.

But for now, with the trade of top-five-ever-point-guard/
triple-double-machine Jason Kidd from the Nets to the Mavericks, one has to look back and say, manomanoman, that guy could really play. This would, of course, be him:

And there was a time--mostly in the early 00s--when watching him lead a young Nets team comprised of Kenyon Martin, Richard Jefferson, Keith Van Horn and a couple of other guys to the NBA Championship series twice (though losing both times) was a thing of beauty.

And now all that's gone.

Quick note on statistics: All-time triple double leaders are The Big O first, with a shitload, then Magic Johnson with 138, then Jason Kidd with about a C-note ... and counting.

As we say in the biking community, adios campagnolo.
