From the draft to free agency, it’s interesting to see how teams address their needs and to see players switch teams.
Teams can get much better or much worse in a hurry depending how they handle this crucial time. That’s why I’m looking forward to tonight’s NBA draft (7:30 p.m., ESPN).
The Cleveland Cavaliers have two of the first four picks and are actively involved in trade talks for other players. Chances are good they will have a dramatically different team after tonight. The hope is they will be able to add talent to do better than they did last year.
Personally, I would love for them to get Derrick Williams of Arizona and Brandon Knight of Kentucky. What do you think?
I love seeing change with my favorite basketball team, and it’s easier to see change when it doesn’t have a direct impact on my personal life (and when my team needs a lot of improvement).
But change can be really scary when it touches me personally.
When the unexpected happens, I turn to the unchanging God, whose love for me is steady and constant. I and other Christians have the privilege of enjoying a wonderful relationship with Him through Jesus. Paul wrote these words to the Roman Christians of his day:
“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death or life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor or worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of Hell can separate us from God’s love” (Romans 8:38 NLT).
Do you know His love? If you don’t, shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’d love to talk to you about it.
