I have to say, I was worried about the quality of my beloved NBA the past few years. But the playoffs have been incredible the past few years, and this year is no exception. And it’s nice to see guards taking the spotlight for once, as James Harden and Steph Curry are clearly two of the best players in the league. There’s just something about a great dribbling display leading to an electrifying three pointer that a bull rush drive by Lebron James can never match. Lebron is still the most impactful player in the league in my opinion, but seeing the little guys make play after play every night is exciting. The New York Knicks got the 4th pick in the NBA draft, so I’m hoping we can get an exciting player. We need it. Here are some electrifying articles I came across recently:
-Travel Hacking 101 w/Brad Barrett by Budgets Are Sexy: An interview with Brad Barrett who blogs at Richmondsavers and is part of a great travel coaching program which I went through myself (it’s awesome.) Great article for those looking to start doing some travel hacking.
-Why My 1 Year Olds Have a Higher Net Worth Than I Do by Budget Blonde: This post kinda describes my current situation, but with our net worth growing fast year after year, I’m not too worried. If it goes down one year, then you got something to worry about.
-30% Higher Net Worth In Just One Year by Mad Fientist: A nice and detailed write up of an ongoing experiment showing the effectiveness of using tax advantaged accounts. Being able to optimally use your 401k, IRA and HSA’s takes a little bit of research, but it is well worth it. And the Mad Fientist’s website is a great place to learn about it all.
