This quote from Jonathan Abrams’ fantastic new piece on Flynn is revealing:
Flynn spent last season with the Australian National Basketball League’s Melbourne Tigers. “I really wanted to play in a place that was English-speaking,” Flynn said. “That was really my main focus. I want to know what’s going on around me.”
Flynn’s curiosity about new languages and cultures is as voracious as his interest in learning a new offense or being a pass-first point guard.
It’s worth reading in full. Set aside some time–and maybe an alcoholic beverage or two–to digest it properly.

Lol. Thank god the David Khan era is over. Which one was Jonny supposed to be again, Walt Frazier or Earl Monroe?
I think Earl. (Okay, I just LOL’d.)
Did Kahn also make the Isiah-Dumars comp, or was that just speculation by everyone else afterwards? God, I will need a beverage or 6 – something very strong – to get me through that whole thing.
