The big old chat encountered some grave internet connectivity problems.
Whoa, nellie am I sorry about that. You have no idea how embarrassing it was, too, to have Mike Conley, Jr. helping me try to figure out how we could get online. Then I had to give up, at some point, and just start taking notes.
So that's the good news: I did talk to Mike Conley, Jr., Corey Brewer, Joakim Noah, Kevin Durant, and Al Horford. Pretty extensively. All very nice young men. I have notes of everything, and will be typing up the best parts ASAP.
Apologies that it didn't work out chat style!
