  • @wrwlumpy love the pics!

  • An incredible human being that successfully overcame huge obstacles to win rings in college and pro ball on two continents. The real deal.

    Mr. Kaun.

  • One of the finest among many classy players in the Bill Self era. I hope he settles in Lawrence.

  • I wonder if Sasha will get back into computer programing?

    On a side note, I just found out an in-law of mine was killed by one of quantrill’s raiders. I knew I hated those missouri bozos!

    The rebs were foolish men deluded into thinking they could turn their backs on the republic, take the southern transcontinental railroad route that the entire country had fought for the acquisition of, cut a deal with Mexico for a canal at Tehuantepec, and tell there rest of the republic to screw off. States rights my ass. It was transcontinental railroad, telegraph and interocean canal rights they rebelled for. The Rebs sold out their allegiance to the flag and to the republic for which it stands, and thought they could catch a military alliance with one, or all, of the Crowns of Great Britain, Habsburg Spain, and Louis Napoleon France, which invaded Mexico, while Johnny Reb took on the republic, and all three of those royalist driven monarchies and parlimentary monarchies, after giving Johnny Reb most every rifle, canon, and ship Johnny Reb had to fight with, well, they left Johnny Rebb hung out to dry.

    This is a historical lesson that certain axes of private oligarchy in USA today ought to heed. You may think you can sell the republic out, and you can for awhile, but iife is long and unforeseen consequences are endless, and what goes around comes around in the republic.

    God bless the republic.

    $50,0500,005,00?💶 🐸 😫

    $550,000,000 minus 2 zeroes at the end = $5,500,000 or $5,5M (app. 4.87M Euros)…right?

  • @wrwlumpy

    This is certainly a possibility, because everyone needs a near footer lug on the bench in the NBA, but at 30 or so, the NBA a very big mountain to scale, especially if he thinks its no fun anymore in Europe. But at least he could get his wife home to America, bank a little more, and settle down in a three years.

  • @wrwlumpy

    I posted a link above where Blatt, who coached Kaun on the Russian National Team, is very interested in pairing him with Mosgov.

  • @wrwlumpy COOL!!

  • @jaybate-1.0 I can see that it takes a whole lot more than what he’s made to live comfortably in Lawrence.

    Bill Self’s salary buys this…


    Sasha might find a Dacha like this in Lawrence with his Rubles…


  • I have a hard time rooting for these Commies … better dead than red.

    By the way, where’s my Atari?

  • He actually just said he was done playing over seas. He is looking for pt in the NBA.

  • @wrwlumpy Who mows Self’s yard? It looks stupid.

    Once you are above four bedrooms, and a man cave work shop big enough to build your own 20 foot skiff, what’s the point? Sasha is too smart to waste his life trying to save up for that McMansion of Self’s. Self should sell it, too, and get himself a nice little place that he does not have to employ half of Lawrence to maintain. He is hardly ever there. He has a wife and two kids running around inside Charles Foster Kane’s Xanadu. Again: What’s the flipping point? People waste too much of their lives on stuff like this. Its not that he can afford it. He could afford a place ten times that size. It isn’t getting him a ten stack and four footers. It isn’t getting him ANY footers. He is barely eeking out a 1-3 stack. Privacy?This house just makes him easy to find with google earth. If he needs the write-off, then buy a freaking ranch and run a hundred head and a breed some horses. I would take the little house any day. Your kids don’t have to wear GPS collars to find them and you can talk to your neighbors over the hedge, if you keep it trimmed low enough. Self would not have to run Mass Street to find out what people were thinking if he just had some neighbors.

    Donald Deskey désigned all any empty nester needs back in 1940–the Sports Shack.


    And he did okay with an easy chair, too.


  • @wrwlumpy I thought that was a joke. No way Bill Self has such an impractical home. Then I fact checked, holy crap that monstrosity is right by free state! I hope he uses it as a recruiting tool, because it is a ridiculously large house for 4. I’m glad to see Bill is enjoying his money or at least letting Cindy enjoy it, as he’s rarely home (I was led to believe).

  • Self’s home includes a secondary residence for visiting parents/inlaws. He also entertains lots of people.

    Kind of an indication he doesn’t mean to move right away…

  • @Statmachine No wonder he never gets any playing time.

  • The Self home is nothing for me… but if it makes him feel good and happy to be a Jayhawk… good for him.

    I, like @jaybate-1.0 , prefer to live in a home where I don’t need OnStar to find a toilet.

    If I had that kind of money, and wanted a sweet crib… I’d have the home size smaller and better combined with some nature. I’d get the Poolmaster guy to build me a lake in my backyard, so I could fish and swim just a few feet from the house. Guess I have too much country boy in me.

  • @drgnslayr Can you plow a field all day long and catch catfish from dusk 'til dawn? Make your own whiskey and your own smoke, too Ain’t too many things ole @drgnslayr can’t do.

    He grows good ol tomatoes and homemade wine And a @drgnslayr boy can survive… Country folks can survive

    Because you can’t starve him out, and you can’t make him run 'Cause @drgnslayr man was raised on shotgun And he says grace and he says Ma’am And if you ain’t into that he don’t give a damn.

  • @nuleafjhawk

    Yep… that’s me! 😉

    You forgot to mention “P-calling” wife!
