{This will be our move next year from Toulon to Antibes}
     Our life outside of basketball this past year was great. We lived in a great area ripe for exploring and also had the weather to be able to take advantage of all that was offered. Believe me, this doesn't happen often in Europe so we knew we were lucky. On the court...well that was another story. Since the teams still has a few more months of signing our paychecks I will refrain from airing the dirty laundry. But unless manipulating and the constant wonder of what bad thing is going to happen next is your thing, steer clear of here. You've been warned. But I do realize that in order to have that great 'off the court' life, some sort of 'on the court' life has to happen since why would we be living in France otherwise. At the end of this year we were sad thinking of the possibility of having to move somewhere er.. how do I say this nicely, less desirable for the next season. But as luck would have it, we were worried for no reason. Just before leaving last week, Shaun signed a two year deal with Antibes, another team in the South of France, a little over an hour from where we were this past year. We are excited for a fresh start and are optimistic that the club is a little more professional than what we have been dealing with recently. And the location? Well, I thought it couldn't get any better than Toulon but it seems I may have been wrong. Antibes is situated a little more east on the French Riviera than Toulon smack dab in between Nice and Cannes. So in other words, it is in a perfect location. In addition to having both of these cities on either side, Monaco and the Italian border are not too far away, which is great for us since we frequented both many times this past year. So for now, we will enjoy the Atlanta heat for the next few months before heading back to the French Riviera. Life isn't bad.

Oh and for those of you who may be bored and/or might feel obligated to watch something because you know Shaun personally, here is a little clip Antibes threw together of some of his highlights of this past season.
