Moments after game one of the NBA Finals: “Man, Toronto is looking amazing! Pascal Siakam is Finals MVP bound! Without KD, the Warriors are nothing. Imagine losing with four All-Stars on the floor. Toronto in four!” Moments after game two: “Well, I’d be damned. Warriors in five.” Even without Kevin Durant,...

Okay, that was a rhetorical question. But why — forgive me — does it sting differently, perhaps more, than when we lose a (human) loved one? I just had to put down my Yellow Labradoodle, Pebbles, because she stopped eating her kibbles and didn’t want to stand up anymore. She was a lumpy old...
