The Boston chapter of the Bucks bandwagon is now operational (albeit with a cramped backseat). http://t.co/5eduph2AgM
Charlie Volker fumbles deep in his own end and Vito Aleo scoops it before going 13 yards for s score. Raritan now leads Rumson, 7-6
w/ all these role guys getting paid major $$$, Stephen Curry's agent should have built-in a player option so he could explore mkt quicker
Bulls Cavs starters http://t.co/6dUwfD0yQG
Stuckey begins the second quarter with a lineup of Cope, Rudez, Allen and Mahinmi. Interesting.
Mahinmi and Allen are better matchups for Gasol and Randolph than Hibbert and Scola. Quicker, probably more physical.
5A playoffs: Riverton takes 7-0 lead over Taylorsville 40 seconds into the game.
If Kings offered anyone not named Cousins or Gay, they really didn't make an offer ... Like the Warriors would jump at anyone else
Butler not in lineup.
If Butler plays like he did in preseason, he should get a nice offer sheet himself.
For Butler, he obviously knows Gordon Hayward, Chandler Parsons and Klay Thompson all got around $15 mil per year. ...
That Varejao contract is a good one for both sides. $10 mil a year for the next two is fair, and team option for third year is smart for CLE
Repeating: Replay has made cowards of officials in every sport. Just make the damn call.
When LeBron miscommunicated on pass w/ Irving last nt, he thought of similar play in 2010 opener in BOS w/ Wade. Had 8 TOs that night too.
C.J. Miles is one of the better interviews in the NBA. Good to see him getting chance to showcase his game w/ Indy suffering those injuries
LeBron James on what he remembers most about his return game to Cleveland: "My eight turnovers. Serious."
Dude has a t shirt with a not very nice thing about LBJ http://t.co/KWQIO24nXc
Syracuse plays Carleton this weekend. Will be interesting if the Cuse can keep it close.
Derrick Rose's first game back at the United Center has been a footnote today between Cavs circus and Jimmy's extension deadline.
Brown also said former Bucks player Luc Mbah a Moute should see some time off bench tonight. He did not play in 76ers season opener at Indy.
CJ Miles with the bit off balance runner but Memphis answers right back and pushes the lead to 23-14
I will debate anyone who argues that L.A., N.Y. or Miami traffic is worse than Chicago traffic.
Lavoy Allen in for Scola after the timeout
76ers coach Brett Brown said he can't wait for all-rookie matchup at PF: Nerlens Noel vs. Jabari Parker.
Just realizing that "I Want Candy" goes real hard. For real, an HBCU drumline could kill that song
In Chicago, where the real news is off the court, and whether Jimmy Butler & Tristan Thompson gets extensions by 11 p.m. Central time.
Bucks lineup for home opener same as Wednesday: Knight, Dudley, Middleton, Parker, Sanders.
One more footnote on Varejao: $4.5 million in final year becomes guaranteed if he's still on Cavs' roster by Aug. 1, 2017. And he will be
Klay extends for 4 years at $70????? I like the young fella, but come on. The market is wild right now
End of one: Rumson 6, Raritan 0. Charlie Volker has 71 on the ground already for RFH
Official numbers on Anderson Varejao 3-year extension: $9.6M next year, $10.3M ($9.3 guaranteed) in 16-17 & 10M (nonguarateed) in 17-18.
I'm getting criticized for giving out too much candy. Average age has been 3.
Warriors officially announce Klay Thompson extension
GM Gar Forman says unlikely.
Butler did not rule out a deal being done before 11:59 pm deadline. Still hope to be talking during game.
This is ugly. In their three losses to the Clippers last season, the Lakers lost by an average of 35.67 points
Klay: "It's hard f/me to express how excited & happy I am to know that I will be playing in front of the best fans in NBA f/ a long time."
Vogel not happy with ref Haywoode Workman: "You gotta be kidding me, Haywood! Best defensive player in the NBA… you put him on the bench?!"
Bob Myers in a statement: "We're excited to have one of the top young players in the NBA under contract for the next several years."
Second foul on Roy Hibbert at the 7:19 mark.
Klay Thompson deal now official
In Luis Scola's defense, those fans in the front row have been wide open.
Hunter Pence just grabbed Santiago Casilla and had the San Francisco crowd say “Yes! Yes! Yes!” to giving all glory to God. Awesome.
Is Memphis one of the few NBA teams that doesn't even have to think about sending a double when Hibbert is trying to post up?
Please let the Giants finish their well-deserved parade so their fake fans can relax. Half of them had given up on SF in mid-summer.
On 4-6, Michael O'Connor goes up top to Murray Mcheffey for a 25-yard score. Rumson up 6-0 on Raritan
Get ready: Hunter Pence is coming to the mic.
Hunter Pence will become the new Mike Krukow.
"I can't tell what you are. Oh wait, are you poor and couldn't get a good costume? Here, take extra."
Combination of Halloween, Pacers injuries and it being a Friday night has BLF looking like this: http://t.co/94tPFYiJy6
I'm so glad ESPN got rid of that whiny Bill Simmons. Now if they can convince Jalen Rose to never again sing a note on TV. It's all good.
Finally some crisp, fall weather!
D-Fenders have acquired the rights to Dennis Horner + a pair of 2nd round picks for Elijah Millsap + 2 later picks - Draft on Saturday
Buster Posey is killing it. Tells Pence: “See those cameras over there? That means LIVE TV. Choose your words wisely, pal."
Vogelsong continues to hype the Super Duper burger down the street from my place.
Kansas asst Jerrance Howard is currently watching 2015 G Malik Newman, who is considering the Jayhawks among others
“This was definitely the best year of my baseball career. Hands down. Not even a close second.” - Tim Hudson at the parade.
Butler: "I think I'll still end up in this city whether it happens tonight or not."
This is the first year I've ever given out candy (first time in a house/neighborhood) and the awkwardness is amazing.
Almost game time in Indian.... http://t.co/kQ8ecqxnUY
For Anderson Varejao's Cavs extension, two years, $20M of deal is guaranteed. The $10M on third year is a team option, league source says.
3 minutes till horn. http://t.co/IDKjoCE3Nw
The risk in this case being (a) paying more then than they would now, and (b) the risk of alienating another player they really do need.
If Bulls are truly willing to match on Butler next year - and by "truly", I mean "not just taking a position" - do it now and save the risk.
Rumson wins the toss and will defer to Raritan.
Reno also traded rights to Ralph Sampson III to Maine for a 4th Rd (56th overall) pick.
Rubio and Wolves are not very far apart at all. Sometimes the last couple yards are toughest to gain
L.A. D-Fenders acquired Vander Blue from Idaho for a 2nd Rd (36th overall pick).
QOTD, from mom, seeing the billboard: "You know, that McRib isn't terrible!" BK
Dropkick Murphys still sucks
It's a great market for guys that haven't yet made an All-Star game. Can't knock a guy for taking the money though, I know I would
Reno traded Darnell Jackson and a 6th Rd pick to Westchester for Stef Hannah and a 1st Rd (10th overall).
Grand Rapids acquired player rights to Daniel Orton and Maine's 6th Rd pick, for a 3rd Rd pick.
Game 4 of my opening B2B2B2B: Clippers "at" Lakers tonight! Three consecutive bad games is rare at any time for team, so onus is on Lakers.
Sioux Falls traded Andre Barrett to Westchester for 3rd round pick and returning rights to Brady Morningstar.
Warriors have 3 years before they have to pay Splash Bros huge money. And their deals only overlap for one season before Klay's is up.
D-League Draft Trade Deadline deals: Austin traded Myck Kabongo & 2nd Rd (21st overall) to Fort Wayne for Jarrell Eddie.
Hey, you win the World Series you can have a 5-hour parade.
Am I horrible for giving away the candy I don’t want and keeping the good stuff for myself?
Told TWolves and Rubio are making some progress. Still expected to down to the wire.
Curry can't get an extension until after NEXT year, wouldn't kick in until 2017-18
A lot of basketball left to be played. Anything can happen, but I could envision the Lakers trying to bring in Rondo and Aldridge.
Best options for the Lakers in free agency next summer: LaMarcus Aldridge, Marc Gasol, Rajon Rondo, DeAndre Jordan & Greg Monroe.
If Butler gets to restricted free agency, Bulls confident they will match.
Kris Humphries' Halloween plans involve going to Fleetwood Mac concert with his mom. "Might dress up as a hippie." I think he was kidding.
The No. 1 warming up. http://t.co/peSb3Is8Xw
Sad situation for everyone involved at WCC. Those responsible should be ashamed. Also impacts 6-8 F Luis Montero, a high-major recruit.
Guess the clown? http://t.co/JfQHMBAvjJ
He's doing this right now. He's actually shooting the ball really well, but "game time decision." http://t.co/kLTE3fLBaI
I'm at Raritan-Rumson tonight. RFH starting to look like the pick in Central Group II with star RB Charlie Volker back healthy.
Jimmy Butler now expected to talk to media in a few minutes.
Anyone else catch Bumgarner drop a, “What’s he talking about?” to Kontos during Larry Baer’s speech? Players will always be the “cool” teens
Pre game prep with my broadcast partner @34Billy42 http://t.co/UjNp7bYb4h
My favorite person in the world as my favorite flower
Is the Spurs strategy risky? Yes, of course. But there's enough upside (and little downside) to make waiting on Kawhi worth it.
If you get married at City Hall, is there a requirement that Ed Lee rambles and yells before the ‘I Dos’?
San Francisco is an economic powerhouse and one of the world’s greatest cities. … and this is our mayor? How did that happen?
I literally just broke out laughing there when Ed Lee yelled: Is Mad Bum a man or a machine? Cut to shot of Bum shaking his head like a teen
Best Haunted House. Ever. http://t.co/9FA8bv15Ms
I could be wrong, but I think Klay might have the Warriors' highest average salary in team history
SF Mayor Ed Lee, everyone … wow.
Euroleague Predictions Game. A Turkish player still on the top of the standing after 2 rounds. Another TUR is 3rd http://t.co/1oT4C8y9GV
Kawhi's cap hold, now that he's a restricted free agent, could give the Spurs enough resources to make a splash if Duncan or Manu retire.
Ricky Rubio, Minnesota making progress in talks on a four-year extension, league sources tell Yahoo. There's optimism, but no deal.
The Spurs not extending Kawhi is not just about Kawhi, ironically. It's about maintaining financial stability next offseason.
Vassilis Spanoulis had 34 points (2PT: 5/10, 3PT: 6/11, FT: 6/10), 5 rebounds and 7 assists in Olympiacos overtime win over Neptunas
Joe Maddon a great hire for the Cubs.
Told Yahoo that he's ready "to bet on himself.'' Translation, I want an out if Fred Hoiberg is the new Bulls coach next season.
Where’s the Oprah meme with “You get an extension! You get an extension!” I’m waiting...
Anderson Varejao and the Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a multi-year contract extension, the team announces. Terms were not disclosed.
Giants closer Santiago Casilla held a Jesus sign during the parade and just walked out to his name announced holding up a Bible in his hand.
Former Bucks Chris Wright had zero points (0-for-3 from the court) and 5 boards in 13 minutes in PGE Turow Zgorzelec’s loss to Barcelona
According to Yahoo, Butler turned down the final offer Friday morning. He refused to talk to the Chicago media about it, however.
What do I do with myself? Probably hang out with this one http://t.co/y3R6kdKo1b
Bulls must not be hatin' on Butler for refusing their sign it or leave it deal. He had a golf cart ride from parking lot.
That’s awesome. Michael Morse ran out of the doors like a WWF wrestler, bumping a camera man and everything.
I was in Philadelphia all of six minutes before I saw my first car on fire. Fun town.
JJ Watt is a defensive player. Bumgarner is (mostly) a defensive player. Only in NBA do some fans angrily deny the value of these players.
Sasha Vujacic scored 14 points at his 1st game with Baskonia. Colton Iverson had 17pts and 6 board, Heurtel too had 17 points in the win
Always forget how angry some fans can get when I say that defensive-minded players are valuable.
Bought Halloween candy for trick-or-treaters… have eaten 7-8 pieces myself while writing about the Rockets. Not great with temptation...
Still a chance Wolves and Ricky Rubio get something done tonight before deadline as well.
Last season, Auburn was a "Team of Destiny" after all those crazy comeback wins. This season, the Noles are "lucky" to "survive." Curious.
Flip on KFAN: "We're still talking," so says there's still reason to be optimistic of deal with Ricky by 11 p.m.
Heat are listing Josh McRoberts (toe) as probable for Saturday's game against the 76ers in Philadelphia.
Klay Thompson has agreed to a 4-year, $70 million extension with the Warriors keeping the Splash Brothers tandem with Stephen Curry together
I thought I'd be waiting out the extension deadline tonight. I'm impressed with how Hornets stepped up and got Kemba deal done.
Gap between Bulls, Butler has moved from $4M annually to $2.5M and now is at $2M.
Even if Warriors pay tax next year, with about $25M in expirings, they can still get right back under for 2016-17, should they choose
In talking with the parties involved in both players - the vibe is why take $9 million on their terms. If its $9mil, do it on your terms.
Happy Halloween. Sun going down, trick-or-treaters coming out. Watch out for the little ones if you're driving.
Wilson says, "Happy Halloween!!!!!"
Harris and the Magic have not had "negotiations" on his deal for some time - Magic seem more interested in matching an offer sheet.
Glad to see the Warriors realized they couldn't argue they had the best backcourt in basketball and pay neither like they were.
Orlando Magic and Tobias Harris in basically same place as Butler... Magic started at $8-9mil - Harris' camp seeking significantly more.
Jimmy Butler shot 28.3% on threes last season yet gets painted as a three-and-D player.
I got a chance to meet Willie McCovey years ago when I was working with The Sacramento Bee and covering a Giants game. Such a class act.
