Could be J! or it could be LL. Before the end of the year I expect to encounter the song "Running Up That Hill" by Kate Bush.

The Golden State Warriors win the 2022 NBA Finals, defeating the Boston Celtics. It is their 4th Larry O'Brien Trophy in the past 8 years.

They were once again led by their veteran championship trio of Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, and Steph Curry, who was Finals MVP.

Their head coach, Steve Kerr, now has 9 championships: 5 as a player with the Bulls and Spurs, and 4 coaching the Warriors. He also won an Olympic Gold Medal as an assistant coach to Team USA in the 2020/21 Tokyo Games.

Khaby Lame is now the most followed TikTok star in the world after surpassing Charli D'Amelio.

(I just copied and pasted this headline from Twitter. I have no idea who this person is, or what they do. But thanks to that easy-to-remember last name, if it shows up in LearnedLeague in a couple of months, I'll get it. Or hate myself for forgetting it, one of the 2.)

Khabane Lame posts videos of himself showing how unnecessarily complicated some "life hacks" are.....without saying a word.
