Today is Day 25 Netzach sheb’netzah. #Winning #Ringz When you look at the list of NBA players with the most championships, 8 of the top 9 are members of the great Boston Celtic teams of the 1950s and 60s. The 9th is Robert Horry aka “Big Shot Bob.”  Besides those Celtics,…

Day 24: The Professor

Today is Day 24 of the Omer. Tif’eret sheb’netzach. Within endurance, there is beauty. Andre Miller first came on my radar as the point guard for the University of Utah basketball team, led by Keith Van Horn in 1995. In 1998, with Van Horn gone, he led the Runnin’ Utes to…

Alternative Day 23: Maya Moore

Today is Day 23 of the Omer. Gevurah sheb’netzach. Power that comes from victory. If Day 23 were just about victory (netzach), Maya Moore would be a perfectly defensible selection.  In 2017, Sports Illustrated called her “the greatest winner in the history of women’s basketball.”  It is tough to argue with…

Day 23: Jordan vs. LeBron

Originally posted on Omertime:
Today is Day 23. Gevurah sheb’netzach. Endurance/Victory that manifests in Power. Well, if you thought the choice on Day 21 was hard, welcome to Day 23. Who you got: Michael Jordan or LeBron James? I’m not talking about the debate for G.O.A.T. I’m talking about who most embodies gevurah sheb’netzach, the…

Day 21: The Big Ticket or The Big Fundamental?

Originally posted on Omertime:
Today is Day 21 of the Omer. Malchut sheb’tiferet. Beauty/balance/truth that manifests as Kingship. Jersey numbers are strange. 300 players have worn the #21 in NBA history. Only 26 have worn the #29. Why? I don’t think 29 is that bad of a number. But when it comes to choosing one…

Day 20: The Scientist

Today is Day 20. Yesod sheb’tiferet. The beautiful pioneer. With the 57th pick from the in the 1999 NBA Draft, the San Antonio Spurs selected an unknown guard from Argentina, Manu Ginóbili. Once Ginóbili made his NBA debut in 2002, it didn’t take long for Manu to make a name for…

Day 19: The Captain

Today is Day 19 of the Omer. Hod sheb’tiferet. Compassion that leads to Gratitude. If you know one thing about Knicks great Willis Reed, it’s probably his heroic appearance in Game 7 of the 1970 Finals vs. the Los Angeles Lakers. After suffering a torn thigh muscle in Game 5, his…

The Shape of the Hoophead

Each day, we will select one basketball player who best embodies the combination of sefirot for that week and day and whose jersey matches the day. You might think that would be too limiting, but according to Basketball Reference, 332 players in NBA history have worn the #3 at some point…

Day 18: The Zen Master

Originally posted on Omertime:
Today is Day 18. Netzach sheb’tif’eret. Balance that leads to winning. On Day 18, two days before Yom Haatzmaut, Israeli Independence Day, I’d like to give a special shout to the best NBA player ever from Israel, Omri Casspi. But todays’ final choice came down to two 6’8”/6’9” left-handed, power forwards,…
