Xavier coach Chris Mack has his contract extended another year -- through 2021, school announced.
Is Rudy Gobert this generation Ben Wallace? Just a lot longer
Rose talked briefly at shootaround. Didn't put a date on his return but he's happy with his progress. So, status quo.
Really, for Stats Clubs purists, playoff results should always be meaningless. 7 games? Way too small a sample size. Titles are irrelevant.
Lowry is with the team in Minnesota but won't play vs T-Wolves tonight. Not expecting him to play Friday in Brooklyn either.
Of the 16, 12 said Wiggins, one said “probably” Wiggins, two said Noel, one said a lean toward Mirotic. None for Payton.
Responses from 16 voters, compared to 124 in actual balloting, but I think a fair cross-section. East and West, writers and broadcasters.
Gotta love the Stats Club members who reflexively lecture me about "small sample sizes" when I am only noting the history of the game.
Bulls-Bucks here in Milwaukee 630CT pre Bulls Radio Network. ESPN 1000 http://t.co/Jxe7ZsuhKO
I'm here for the inevitable partnership between the NBA and Forever Lazy http://t.co/o8lYidsFIy
Great hire by U of San Diego, making Lamont Smith head men's hoop coach. Alums: Bernie Bickerstaff, Chris Grant, Mike Brown, James Borrego
Rose on rhythm: "I was able to get to my spots. It’s just making shots and just getting wind to run up and down, that’s the hardest thing."
Rose seems pleased about what he’s done in two days of practice: "Both days. I know it’s a process, but I’m along for this ride."
Kris Humphries went through shootaround and, as he said yesterday, is expected to return tonight.
Rose said he felt good after 2 days of contact. "I know it's a process but I'm along for this ride."
Gruden visiting with rookie-to-be quarterbacks on ESPN is so trippy.
Rose: "As far as playing a game or coming back full strength and all that, that’s going to come. My rhythm of the game will come."
Derrick Rose didn't put a timetable on a regular season return, saying "I haven't even thought about it. Just worrying about rehab."
Rose: "I was able to get to the spots. It’s just making shots and getting the wind to actually run up and down. That’s the hardest thing."
The Pacers have eight games left. Mind-boggling that there’s nothing definitive on PG.
Rose wouldn't commit to return but said he's pleased with how his body reacted to contact. Said he's only missing his wind, conditioning.
J.J. Barea is ready to roll after missing last four games with sprained left ankle.
Walking around LA Live today, people still talking about Steph's crossover.
Russell Westbrook on this week's Sports Illustrated cover http://t.co/TbmRXl5JNt
I don't hate myself and everyone around me. ... April Fools!!
Rose on if he's still optimistic about a regular season return: "Who knows? Who knows?"
Rose still uncertain if there will be a regular-season appearance. "Who knows."
Rose says he's feeling good. Just wants to keep getting his wind up.
I informed Dirk Nowitzki that he's only 14 pts from 28K for his career: "I actually did not know that." He's locked into the playoff race.
You may not like WCS, but his ability to protect the rim, and stay in front of smaller players on the high screen is extremely valuable.
Dwight Howard said he wasn't sure if he was playing tonight vs. Sacramento or tomorrow vs. Dallas. Will only play one.
After this morning's shootaround, Carlisle wouldn't say if Monta will play tonight. He said he'll give out the lineup tonight.
Derrick Rose is out tonight vs Bucks
Kelly Oubre's father confirms to ESPN that his son is leaving for NBA.
Time for Nathan to go. Next on @dsports1051
Looks like Monta Ellis is good to go, but Rick Carlisle says, "I'll give you the lineup tonight."
Terrence Jones (lung) said he hopes to play this evening and will wear protection over his ribs.
Dwight Howard said he could play tonight vs Kings.
Terrence Jones say she thinks he will get to play tonight against Sacramento.
The best Dennis Duffy joke was when he was asked about his political leanings. Without hesitation: "Social conservative, fiscal liberal."
Thibs says McDermott (back soreness) is still out.
Draft analyst Tony Pauline said Phillip Dorsett's 4.27 in 40 is fastest hand timed 40 at a pro day this yr
Thibs says Rose is getting "better and better" Still out for now. Needs to string more practices together.
McDermott, Rose out vs. Bucks. Thibodeau said Rose responded well to 2 days of contact.
Rose won't play tonight as expected
Go back to watching baseball, this is the wrong sport for you.
Curry hit a 12-footer????? That broke Twitter? A f-ing 12 foot baseline jumper after CP3 stepped on his foot? You people are idiots.
Most of these UM players and others with local ties will work out for the Dolphins on April 10.
He dribbled behind his back? OOOOoooo we've never seen that before. Oh wait! He hit a pull up 12-footer on the baseline OMGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!
Instead, he stepped on Curry's foot, lost his balance and had to catch himself. Then, what did Curry do that was so amazing?
If Curry's foot hadn't been inches in front of where he initially tried to plant, he would have simply planted again 3-5 inches further.
CP3 has lost a step, not his technique. Pursuing Curry on the baseline, he planted his foot and didn't gain purchase. His foot slipped.
Last season, according to research presented at Sloan, CP3 graded out as the best defensive point guard in the NBA. This year he has slipped
Jazz post all star break defensive rating of 93.2 is best PASB defense since Pistons in 2003-04 an insane 87.4 pts per 100 possessions
Curry has had so many great moves, so many ankle breakers, it really cheapens all of them for people to lose their ish over this.
Okay, let's get this straight. If you think Curry "broke CP3's ankles" with his behind the back crossover, you don't understand basketball.
Nuggets interim Melvin Hunt is part of an awkward dynamic trying to win a job while fans actually prefer losing right now.
Jason Taylor here but not for Fins. Says he is covering his first Pro Day with Jonathan Vilma for NBCSN.
"..honor his scholarship when he returns to complete his degree."
UCLA freshman forward Kevon Looney is closing agency agreement and planning to declare for the 2015 NBA draft, sources tell RealGM.
April Fools! I'll probably run outside today.
Two teams that should make a jump next year: Rhode Island & Maryland. Both have key pieces returning & coming in as additions(Stone/McGlynn)
Oklahoma says sophomore guard Frank Booker has decided to transfer.
Maryland says Melo Trimble will return to school for his sophomore year. They are going to be loaded w/ Stone, Carter, Nickens, etc.
Terrence Jones participated in shootaround today. His status for tonight hasn't been updated from questionable.
Kevin Durant discussed his 2016 free agency in an interview with Revolt TV. This is NOT an April Fools joke. QUOTE: http://t.co/75yhisN8FN
Maryland announced Melo Trimble will return for his sophomore season, so get the hype train cranked up.
Sometimes you have to wonder if Pauly Shore still has it.
Besides their executives and Philbin, dolphins also have several assistants, including Lazor who is talking to Al Golden right now
When I was like 4 years old, I made my dad a big sandwich full of dirt and grass for April Fool's Day. Best joke ever.
The Bucks went 4-11 in March, their worst shooting month (43.9%) and worst defensive month (104.5 rating) of the season.
The East's No. 8 seed is only invited to the party because the seat must be filled, even if it seems like no one wants it.
Brooklyn was at .500 a day after New Year, then fell 13 games under .500 just weeks ago, yet since won 8 of 10 and currently own the 8 spot.
UM says four NFL head coaches are confirmed here at Pro Day. Philbin, Tomlin, Sean Payton, Todd Bowles. Belichick is on list to attend.
Why the hell is Webber talking about per game stats when talking about Kentucky players? BTW D Jordan avg 8/6 his 1yr at A&M.
The hour, however, is late. Been back for three months now, still struggling.
But as Pop said recently, hard to replace what Patty provides in terms of instant O, and it's hard to break out of slump with no mins.
Kevin Durant said Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, James Harden and Stephen Curry are the toughest players to guard in the league. (Revolt TV)
But that had to give him something to think about. Mills shooting 37.6 percent this year, while Joseph provides boost whenever he gets mins.
Pop seemed to indicate Cory over Patty last night wasn't a permanent thing: "Every game is different. We called on Cory, and he was great."
The Internet is good. LOL JK April Fools. It sucks.
The Clippers badly need this Jamal Crawford return.
Roberta's used to have this pizza with like tuna and capers and possibly a few other things, which I would like to eat right now.
Terps announce Melo Trimble is staying. Exhale.
Kevin Durant said Kobe, Harden, Anthony Davis, Westbrook, Stephen Curry, himself, LeBron, Melo, CP3 & Marc Gasol are his top 10 NBA players.
The Heat are in the tough position of needing to get healthy but also needing to push hard to hang on for a playoff spot.
Steph had CP getting ready for the X-Games http://t.co/sRm5ybs4BH
Tough: The Pelicans' schedule includes six of their final nine games on the road and five of those nine against top-six teams in the West.
Til Tuesday apparently provided the soundtrack for the Clippers versus Warriors: Hush hush keep it down now voices carry.
Fool's Gold: Clippers lost to the Mavs and Rockets, then won seven in a row against a weak schedule, then lost at home to Golden State.
Going to be a whole highlight tape of Steph Curry fooling with Chris Paul at the end of the season.
If Andrew Bogut feels good entering the first round, the Warriors have a huge advantage this postseason. This time to rest up is huge.
That Curry cross was so nasty, he crossed the hell outta Paul again in second half but no one remembers. Except Pepperidge Farm that is
The note reads, "Please don't tow my car." Welp. http://t.co/q2SahbZuuc
Worst prank? When USC's LenDale White, who got fewer carries than R Bush, fake-argued w coaches about carries ...and then faked his suicide.
For sake of the East Coast, I'll repeat what I said last night: 1st time I ever saw entire home crowd beg for jumbotron replay for away team
The April Fool’s jokes ppl make are the best possible way to gauge if someone is actually funny or sorta funny or how-is-that-funny funny.
Lest I forget, Happy April Fools to biggest fool of em all. How do u go to Disneyland YEARLY & still get this scared? http://t.co/bHB3C2w4Gv
Fifth pick in a fantasy baseball draft. Roto scoring. Who do I take? BK
Mike Muscala reference, check.
In case you are wondering, Parker search is the one who hires Presidents, Athletic Directors and also coaches. Fogler also helps run events.
Texas A&M Antwon Space transferring, source told ESPN.
George Mason. Future. Introduction. Setting. http://t.co/kmaVy7D1wH
Part of an athletic director's job is to be prepared to hire coaches. Should have a network, so no reason to hire a search firm.
Can’t believe I just heard the story about Mark Cuban opening a bar at IU as a student for the first time.
(Atlanta has the right to swap picks with Brooklyn, via the Joe Johnson trade).
Another search firm also helps run an exempt event. (can you say "conflict of interest."
One current search firm hires president of university, then the president hires them to hire the AD, then the AD hires them to find coach.
Notre Dame's Pat Connaughton confirmed for 3-point shooting contest Thursday at Hinkle. Too bad they don't have a pitch-speed competition.
Who wants in with me on my search firm? We work about two months of the year and rack in cash. Go to beach the rest of the year!!!
SporthSouth will televise the April 8 Hornets-Raptors game that ESPN dropped from its schedule.
