Wizards head coach Scott Brooks talked about the John Wall-Bradley Beal relationship on SiriusXM NBA Radio: “I read what everybody else read. I have not talked to them about it because I don’t think it was important. I will say this… Teams that never have disagreements with one another are bad teams.”
“They didn’t, so I don’t even want to talk about it,” Durant said, while adding that he doesn’t expect to make too much of an adjustment from his time with Oklahoma City. “I’m going to be who I am, and approach the game like I’ve always done it. Nothing’s changed on my end, except for my jersey.”
“My ballhandling is better now,” said Porzingis, the Knicks’ starting power forward. “I just feel comfortable with the ball now. So you’re going to see some new stuff this season. You’re going to see some new stuff and hopefully some more put-back dunks.”
The 76ers launch single-game ticket sales for the 2016-17 season on Tuesday. It is the first time that single-game tickets are available through the team’s new partnership with ticket reseller StubHub. It’s also the beginning of StubHub’s era of selling tickets for an entire venue, not just seats being resold by the original ticketholders.
Gregg Popovich: “I think it’s really dangerous to answer such important questions that have confounded so many people for hundreds of years, to ask me to give you my solutions, as if I had any, in 30 seconds. So if you want to be specific about a question, I’ll be more than happy to answer it because I think race is the elephant in the room in our country. The social situation that we’ve all experienced is absolutely disgusting in a lot of ways. What’s really interesting is the people that jump right away to say, one is attacking the police, or the people that jump on the other side. It’s a question where understanding and empathy has to trump, no pun intended, has to trump any quick reactions of an ideological or demagogical nature. It’s a topic that can’t just be swung at, people have to be very accurate and direct in what they say and do.”
