Gotta change my Twitter bio to include "NBA Influencer" now http://t.co/w1SHIM6xgN
LeBron, at Nike event to introduce new shoe: "(Kyrie is) part of the reason I (returned to Cavs). I think he can be best PG in our league."
The LeBrons look so bulky and indestructible they were probably designed by Tanker Hatfield
LeBron James says summer weight loss & diet was "mental challenge." He says he's "lost a ton of weight" and plans to put some back on.

I just bought a set of Mavericks nesting dolls on eBay that includes Dirk, Nash, Finley, Nick Van Exel and Raef LaFrentz.
If LeBron indeed restored his hairline it'll be death to y'all jokes but some of us nearing that "come home" stage are happy
Warriors center Festus Ezeli is telling the students about playing futbol during his schooldays recesses. http://t.co/eEfRcpVBO2
Or perhaps a Chris Singleton shoutout.
Yes Jordan Wilkes is Jamaal's son
Warriors assistant coach Ron Adams has the entire EnCompass Academy student body jumping and spinning. http://t.co/0X4mrSaboP
Haven't heard yet where/what Johnny Davis is up to - but he won't be on Byron Scott's bench - team either re-assigned or let go
A cheer goes up at PPL Park, as the Union take the pitch for warmups.
Could you imagine how writers would react if players ranked them? (I know I'd find it impossible not to notice)
Nor should they, to be honest. Any decent human cares on some level what people think about them.
Looks like Wall doesn’t agree with Sports Illustrated ranking him the 31st-best player in the NBA.
NBA player rankings show why you should never believe athletes when they say they don't pay attention to what's written about them.
And I'm sure the Vikings GM would've said the exact same things at a press conf if it was his 53rd guy who did it, right?
Lakers' announce Paul Pressey, Jim Eyen and Mark Madsen will be assistants on Byron Scott's staff.
I still can't get over the Vikings GM. A week after watching the Ravens bungle everything, he comes out and essentially defends child abuse.
Lakers announce coaching staff: Paul Pressey, Jim Eyen, Mark Madsen, Thomas Scott, Clay Moser, Larry Lewis, Tom Bialaszewski & J.J. Outlaw
Clay Moser, Larry Lewis, Thomas Scott, Tom Bialaszewski, and J.J. Outlaw will round out Byron Scott’s staff.
Joe Rose ruined half of my live reports with his loud voice and not once could I hold it against him. Big congrats, you'll be missed.
Warriors center Festus Ezeli and assistant coach Ron Adams are at EnCompass Academy in Oakland. http://t.co/fNLlDupKOW
Rest of Lakers' support staff: Clay Moser, Larry Lewis, Thomas Scott, Tom Bialaszewski and J.J. Outlaw
He signed a few blue-collar, overlooked guys because he wasn't getting the blue-chippers. And now he's getting the elite guys again.
Lakers announce coaching staff: Paul Pressey, Jim Eyen and Mark Madsen are the assistant coaches
Some guys have additional duties beyond assistant coach, but that’s the group helping Byron out. AK
I know Texas hoops fans are sick of my spiel, but again: That whole "Barnes decided he doesn't want NBA guys anymore" storyline was bogus.
Per the Lakers, Byron’s staff: Paul Pressey/Jim Eyen/Mark Madsen/Clay Moser/Larry Lewis/Thomas Scott/Tom Bialaszewski/J.J. Outlaw AK
Lakers have also made Rondre Jackson director of player development and Jordan Wilkes basketball operations assistant
Also on Scott's staff will be Clay Moser, Larry Lewis, Thomas Scott, Tom Bialaszewski & JJ Outlaw
Lakers announce coaching staff under Byron Scott - Mark Madsen, Jim Eyen and Paul Pressey
The Lakers announced that Paul Pressey, Jim Eyen and Mark Madsen will serve as assistant coaches on Byron Scott’s staff this season.
Shout out to the dude that just pulled up to me at a stoplight, recognized me, leaned out the window and showed me his retro Mavs hat.
What's the worst sports loss you've ever endured... and how did you cope?
Sign O' The Times, too.
And Physical Graffiti.
(more) "...But when a player has been a backup and has played half a season, there’s some real limits as to what value there is presently."
Probably the best double album of all time. Only ones that come close are Quadrophenia, London Calling and All Things Must Pass.
I mean, I'm all for sponsors coming down on the NFL. Force change. But holy bleeping crap, pot, meet kettle.
Guys I can't believe I'm seeing Stevie Wonder perform 'Songs in the Key of Life' in its entirety in a couple months.
A company making billions of $ off of an addictive substance that frequently increases violence should not be lecturing anybody on morals
Busch: "NFL isn't doing a good enough job on women's issues." "Now, go look at our advertisement featuring mostly naked women in bikini's"
Can someone explain to me why the Kings would retire Peja's jersey? Vlade I get; Webber I get. Peja? Nice guy, fine player, but....
Zero Sweet 16s in the last six seasons, but Rick Barnes has righted the recruiting ship. Chance for a big couple of years.
Timing of Papanikoloau signing a little more unpredictable. Needs to complete buyout, get FIBA approval. Still, could come in next few days.
Two weeks until 1st training camp practices, Rockets scheduled to complete deal for Jason Terry tmrw. Papanikolaou expected to sign this wk.
Joe Rose is retiring from NBC-6 TV job in December. Will do only radio.
Former Oregon star LaMichael James' workout with Miami didn't result in him signing but it's a possibility.Sides have had discussions.
Nice get by Rick Barnes and the Texas Longhorns -- getting commitment from talented guard Eric Davis.
Last year's game was on a short week... 49ers' D destroyed Bradford & the Rams offense. This year it's regular rest, but vs. a better team.
This week's 49ers game in AZ reminds me a lot of last year's Week 4 game in STL, when 49ers were 1-2, Willis was out and VDavis was limited.
How well did Brandon Carr play Sunday? Coaches gave him extra credit, grading him out at 102.
College coaches at St. Ben's also impressed w/6-7 Canadian F Kevin Hamlet. Long, big wing who does a little bit of everything. Defends well.
Retweets do not mean endorsements
St. Ben's will have a 2nd team that will feature 6-6 Delaware commit Eli Cain, 6-8 Connor Shorten and others
Fenerbahce beat Edirne 98-68 with Goudelock perfect from long range (7/7 & 25 PTS). Walsh was best player for Edirne with 20 PTS & 6 REB
Delaware is getting a nice piece in St. Ben's G Eli Cain. Won Peach Jam, playing well against some good talent today.
I bet people will start replying to my emails THE MOMENT I become a reclusive hermit.
Pitt also checked out 2016 Seton Hall Prep/Playaz G T.J. Gibbs
Bunch of coaches here at St. Ben's for 2017 G Trevon Duval, who helped the Playaz win Peach Jam...Villanova, Pitt, Miami, SMU.
Also, I will never understand the intersection of NBA fans who love Rondo and belittle Rubio.
Congrats to Peja Stojakovic on Kings jersey retirement. Serbia could have used his talents in FIBA gold medal game, per 2002 Worlds in Indy
If a player is ranked lower than you'd expect, it's likely because his skill set makes him harder to build around. The list favors balance.
One other notable change has Hakeem Valles getting bumped up to starting tight end on the heels of his career day on Saturday vs. Wagner
Re: Top 100 – As noted in the intro, our rankings attempts to separate a player from his team setting to evaluate in a vacuum.
Monmouth 2-deep is out. Hawks have Hunter McHugh's RG spot listed as redshirt frosh Matt Stoneberg OR grad student Stephen Andes
Free agent center-forward Micheal Eric has agreed to a minimum salary deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, league sources tell RealGM.
If you're not already on Cyber Dust, it's a great way to interact with fans or consumers. More importantly, a lot fewer trolls.
The arraignment for Marreese Speights on a DUI charge has been continued to another date.
Are there still coeds at Florida State who adore Jameis Winston?
OK but as long as Jameis Winston didn't shoplift any more crab legs everything is cool.
Music critics are soft on behavior issues. Pretend they don't exist.
But when a musician does something dumb, it's all in the name of rebellion. OK.
I'd argue that musicians have a stronger hold on kids/teens than athletes.
Why doesn't the public hold record companies to the same standard as NFL, MLB, etc.?
Galatasaray beat Dinamo Sassari 78-75 G.Saray: Gonlum 15, Erceg 13, Smith 15 Sassari: Logan 24, Todic 15
Free agent center-forward Michael Eric has agreed to a minimum salary deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, league sources tell RealGM.

Lot of young talent here at St. Ben's in the post-Briscoe, post-Ennis Era. SMU, Villanova, Iona, Pitt, Quinnipiac checking them out.
Ya boy got Stevie tickets
New Thunder podcast coming a little later today.
Another opportunity for me to beg Basketball Twitter to nickname Glenn Robinson III "Lil' Dog." It just makes too much sense.
Has anyone conducted the analysis yet proving or disproving that the NFL is facing a spike in criminal activity over prior years?
Sorry, Anheuser-Busch's statement seems hollow to me. The company says it doesn't want minors drinking its beer, too.
T. Zeller, the No. 17 pick in '12 draft, didn't work out for Cs who had No. 21 and 22 picks. "I was hoping I wouldn't go that low," he said.
Sounds like none of the schools involved have a clue where Chris Silva will end up on Friday
People get so defensive on those 3 issues & begin engaging in such primitive defense mechanisms that the conversation ends before it begins.
Told GR-III turned down a partial guarantee a couple weeks ago. Curious to hear how much he got guaranteed. Yes, deal's done. Yahoo had 1st.
Try and have a reasonable conversation about changes with regard to guns, alcohol, or football in the U.S. and prepare to be decimated.
New Celtics center Tyler Zeller atones for breaking a box of macaroni at Merrimack Valley Food Bank: http://t.co/ZSrp7nyKhy
Zeller: "we're probably not going to win 60 games this year and set records ... I think we have a great opportunity to make the playoffs"
Bad PR is whatever. The NFL makes too much money to care. Once the big sponsors start threatening to pull out, it's on.
Zeller said one of his goals is starting. "But I have a lot of work to go to earn that spot and I expect to have to earn it."
Alcohol is a factor in so many cases of interpersonal violence and yet now an alcohol company is lecturing the NFL. That's rich.
SMU coach Larry Brown here at St. Ben's before his home visit with 2015 Markis McDuffie
In New Orleans team history, Anthony Davis is also already eighth in points (2261), eighth in rebounds (1195) and ninth in steals (164)
Robinson III arrived in Minnesota to sign his contract today, and will join the Timberwolves for the start of training camp, sources said.
Reed blew off question on whether city assistance would mean a new arena.
Press conference is concluding. Will have a quick story shortly.
Glenn Robinson III has agreed to a guaranteed deal with Minnesota, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. Robinson was 40th pick in 2014 Draft.
Dominque Wilkins will get a statue on March 6, 2015.
Reed press conference has turned into a plea for Braves to give city departure date. Harsh words.
Psyched to revisit this in five years to see which part of it is retroactively hilarious: http://t.co/C6Dl2QynnW
I'm getting some great questions in, MFFLs. Get on Cyber Dust now and hit me up.
DORTMUNDDDDDDDDDDD LET’S GO (am i doing this right?)
Did Zeller drop and spill a box of macaroni at the food bank? Yes. Yes he did.
Reed: Multiple offers to sell Turner Field but no departure date from Hawks.
Reed: We can sell Turner Field as an asset to help keep Hawks in ATL.
For the record, it took 17 days for Lache Seastrunk to land with a team, and even then, it was a team's practice squad.
Reed: "We have pretty good capacity" to offer assistance to Hawks in keeping team in ATL.
Zeller thinks the playoffs are a possibility.
Zeller said ideal playing weight for him is 260 or 270 pounds. Happy with the work he did in the weight room this summer.
Reed said he spoke with CEO Steve Koonin just before starting his current press conference.
It's a shame people don't mention Manu in the two-way shooting guard discussion. He's terrific, even at his age.
Zeller called Brad Stevens "brilliant." Has been really impressed by coach's basketball knowledge already.
Also "beer" and "moral code" almost are always in the same sentence. For me, "makes me forget my" is usually in between.
Reminder: My opinion doesn't matter and your opinion doesn't matter -- at least not when compared to the opinions of corporate sponsors
Eddie Pleasant didn’t receive his care package from the U of Oregon. “Tell them I didn’t receive mine for two years now. I expect double."
Dominque Wilkins says he does have interest in buying the Hawks.
When Nike and Anheuser Busch start sending messages, you can bet the NFL is listening. Does FedEx get involved?
Dominque Wilkins: "I think the organization has to be represented in the right way."
Reed says one of the prospective buyers is from China.
