"Humans had never risked so much on zeros and ones." I loved this @WSJ story about the code that powered Apollo 11:

This trade is so mind-boggling on so many levels, but it's really nuts that it won't be settled for seven years. How long is seven years in NBA time? Seven years ago is when the Thunder traded James Harden to the Rockets.

The Houston Rockets are playing two preseason games in Saitama, Japan. The Russell Westbrook era will begin in @7A_mountain's hometown.

And it's working. HomeCourt has tracked 25 million shots. Lanie Grant is responsible for 100,000 of them. She's become one of the best young basketball players in the country because of an iPhone app.

I wrote about HomeCourt last year. It's pretty crazy technology.

The NBA is partnering with HomeCourt and taking an equity stake in the shot-tracking company, the league says. This new round of funding also includes personal investments from Bradley Beal, Sue Bird, Joe Harris, Al Horford and JJ Redick.

The result of the wildest free agency in the history of the league: The next NBA season might actually be as entertaining as the NBA off-season.

Baseball players paid serious attention to all the buzz surrounding NBA free agency. They recognize that basketball players moving from one team to another in many ways overshadowed *actual, real-life baseball games.* It's a conundrum with no easy fix.

The players have more power than ever. Their contracts are merely suggestions. Paul George's trade to the Clippers with Kawhi Leonard is only the latest sign of the NBA turning into European soccer.

Kawhi Leonard picked the Clippers over the Lakers. Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant chose the Nets over the Knicks. This is the NBA's new reality: The most talented players want to work for the most competent teams.

Talent vs. Fit is the most interesting question in the NBA. I wrote about this debate that's shaping the league and why it might be smart to spend on spillover instead of starpower. Also the Lakers.

The Rays want a new international home. MLB is coming to London this weekend. Where did another Florida team (the Jaguars) find a second home? London. THE RAYS SHOULD MOVE TO LONDON.

The most interesting decision of NBA free agency is what the Lakers do with their pile of money. Should they spend on a star player or several role players? To put it another way: Is it smarter to build around talent or fit?

What's the smartest way to build a championship team in today's NBA: talent or fit? It's a debate playing out across the league, and it's the question of the summer for the Lakers. They have to decide between starpower and spillover.

Over the past four years, only one team in women’s soccer has beaten the US twice: France. Now the USWNT has to play them again. Meet Les Bleues, the team built specifically to take down the Americans.

Are the parents who brawl at youth sports games the most embarrassing human beings on Earth? Signs point to “YES.” New column for the @WSJ:
