Today I have defended my thesis on the subject "Analysis of the NBA CBA" and I am truly happy and much relieved.
I have been a fan of NBA since I was about 10 and I felt like this thesis was a sort of an expression of gratitude toward the game, league and joy it brought to me over the years.
This joy also came from being a part of this forum, which I am visiting each day for some time now.
And even though I mostly hold different opinions from the majority of posters I definitely want to include you as being a part of my life and this basketball joy.
We share that same love for the game and and that is a good thing, that I am certain of.

Have a good one.

Sure, but it is in Croatian language.
Unfortunately, I don't think google translate will do any good as a whole.
It is perhaps the first document on the subject in my mother tongue.
That feels good too.

Bah! My croation is awful. Is there any chance it could be translated?

I'm super curious because I've always dreamt about doing something similar.

Google is the best try.
I can't translate it back to English now, it would take a lot of effort right now, sorry.

I'm curious, what was the actual thesis or argument?  I get that you were analyzing the NBA CBA, but what was your central argument about it?
You’ll have to excuse my lengthiness—the reason I dread writing letters is because I am so apt to get to slinging wisdom & forget to let up. Thus much precious time is lost.

Wonderful news!  What was the degree?  This gives me a little added inspiration as I start my PhD program in the fall.  No clue what my thesis will be on yet, but I guess I have a little time to sort that out!

Statistics program at the University of New Hampshire.  I was admitted for pure math, but made the switch in hopes of expanding my opportunities down the road.  It was the only school I applied too because my wife and I just built a home in Kennebunkport ME and UNH was the only math dept with a Phd program that was commutable.  A former colleague went through the program and had a positive experience.  I'm looking forward to finally getting started after having been delayed by a few years.

I did an analysis of the CBA as well.

Conclusion: it sucks.
