Day 48: Nazr Mohammed

Today is Day 48 of the Omer. Yesod sheb’malchut. Nobility that leads to Foundation. After winning two NCAA championships in three seasons at Kentucky, Nazr Mohammed left college 18 credit hours short of his bachelor’s degree, to become a first round pick of the Philadelphia 76ers.  He established himself as a solid backup center, averaging 5.8 points and 4.7 rebounds a game for 8 teams over … Continue reading Day 48: Nazr Mohammed

day 48: spiderman

Today is 48 days, which is six days and six weeks of the omer: yesod she’b’malchut.

The type of player who can do all of that against … Continue reading Day 41: Dirk Nowitzki

day 41: the convert

Today is 41 days, which is six days and five weeks of the omer: yesod she’b’yesod. The credit for today’s pick goes to Rabbi Justin David, whom you’ll get to hear from as a guest writer in a couple of days on Day 43 in an incredibly moving post. Stay tuned! I was at a loss for the title of this post, because third baseman/outfielder Elliott Maddox … Continue reading day 41: the convert
