It’s the unexpected that keeps us moving forward.
Most can forecast the mundane with greater accuracy than an AMS certified weatherman.
Things like bills, bad reports from the dentist or the fact your yard will at some point need to be mowed again are all the harsh realities of life; but it’s those little nuggets of the unexpected that keep us on our toes.
Things like a co-worker’s comment that digs at you for days or the moment the Bachelorette gets interrupted by a “Special Report” just as she’s about to tell a fourth different guy she loves him or worse yet how about the Pacers finding out their biggest worry this off season won’t be bolstering their bench after all.
After completing his fourth season Pacers big man Roy Hibbert is a restricted free agent.
Many believed Hibbert would attract interest but nothing that would possibly lead him to Google “Indianapolis area UHaul dealers.”
But a max deal from Portland has completely muddied the waters and now Hibbert’s future has never been more uncertain.
The first sign of trouble for the Pacers Brass was likely Hibbert’s selection to the all-star team this past season.
While they beamed for the press and slapped big Roy on the back during the announcement, the photographs failed to show the wheels that were spinning in their minds.
The math is easy to do even for those of us who loathe it.
All-stars command more money.
And not only is Roy an all-star but he’s also one who works hard on his game and goes out of his way be a positive force in the community.
From here the answer is simple.
Of course it’s far more complex than that.
