Photos the Front Office No Doubt Love :)

And we know how the front office feels about players playing for their national teams:
One of the concerns I have had is our athletes being around each other together and enjoying this idea [of playing together], and by them being around each other, some of our superstars, them talking and just saying, “Well, maybe we oughta stay together and formulate our own little squads in Miami or in New York” or wherever it might be. I think there’s been a little bit of that atmosphere going on, and I don’t like that competitive nature. I like the idea of players wanting to say, “No, I want to compete with each other and I want to compete and beat you.”
You know? Deron Williams wants to compete against Dwight Howard instead of teaming up together after we’ve already gotten all of our money first, and then now let’s make it easier for us to win. I like something about people just saying, “No, we’re going to follow the rules that’s out there, and I don’t get to choose and pick. Whoever gets picked to be on my team though, we’re going to compete together and go out there and win.” And so, one thing I think the Olympics has done a little bit is maybe invite that atmosphere of those guys coming together and wanting to do that. So that’s one negative to what the Olympics does.

Meanwhile, here’s one that I love. Kay Malone (@mamail) tweeted this pic of Karl and their dogs. My attention, however, was drawn to how much watermelon the Mailman puts away in one sitting lol.
