That's me! That's me! In the background! (All the OG G-Unit fans will recognize that) http://t.co/T8BkH8lKyC
Thanks for all of the kind remarks today. It's truly appreciated. (And, yes, I will be printing them out to show my wife and bosses.)
Former NBA G Tierre Brown made his return (inactive since 2013) scoring 48 points for Gaiteros de Zulia in Venezuela in loss to Bucaneros
Since he last missed a game, Matthews has made 396 three-pointers in regular season and playoffs, which is pretty amazing.
Sorry about the repost. Darn Vine didn't put any text on the first one.
To clarify on the Barea injury, it's a left thumb sprain.
Olympiacos wins in Milano vs Olimpia 83-74
One of the ads on the digital billboard at the Fairgrounds: "Thank you, Reggie." Now that's cool.
The last to win MVP without at least winning a division title in the regular season is Michael Jordan in 1988.
About to jump on 980 with these guys to talk Wizards. http://t.co/dhuexy6MQp
POR's best chance to go deep is for Nicolas Batum to snap out of his season-long funk. That’s true with or without Matthews.
Alvin: "better place on the health front compared to the unprecedented January stretch when we dealt with an inordinate amount of injuries.”
Steve Lavin: 'With Harrison, Branch and Obekpa's nagging injuries we are obviously not yet at full strength, but thankfully we are in a
Talk today at practice focused on cutting down turnovers. Bucks giving away too many possessions - had 24 TOs leading to 28 GS points Wed.
St. John's Chris Obekpa (left ankle) is expected to play Saturday vs. Villanova. Jamal Branch will be game day decision (mild strain groin)
Bucks coach Jason Kidd said O.J. Mayo and Jared Dudley did not practice today. Mayo will be out Saturday vs. Wizards; Dudley a question.
Wes Matthews has made [just] $25 million in his career. He was do to make may be double that this summer.
Chris Johnson said he woke up at 3:45 a.m. to make flight to Milwaukee for practice today. Was on floor for 1st practice w/Bucks.
Presumably Mike Hopkins will coach those 9 games next year at Syracuse, but going forward this puts him in a really tough situation.
I made it to Philly and my mentions have exploded! Did Oprah use one of my Vines?
Bout to knock out this Not Top Ten on ESPNNews
Ray Allen content to chew gum, for now.
Clippers sign Jordan Hamilton to another 10 day deal http://t.co/34PzYFTFqo
If you could have seen Devin Harris get dressed with his injured right hand last night, I don't think he's playing the rest of this trip.
Commence the bashing of Ray Allen.
Spoelstra & Bosh text. Spo: "He destroyed me about my performance at Battioke, coming from the former champ. I wasn't on CB's level."
Clippers bring back Jordan Hamilton for 2nd 10-day
Spoelstra on Bosh: "It’s great to have him back at home and around his family and doing healthy human being things."
This is one of the rare days where it feels damn good to be a Jets fan.
Spoelstra also believes we haven't seen the best of Hassan Whiteside yet. Still developing individually & learning the league.
Erik Spoelstra thrilled with Hassan Whiteside's continued strong work ethic: "He hasn't formed a sense of entitlement because of his play."
"People always said 'Pat made Mase.' No, Mase made me," Pat Riley said of the late Anthony Mason. Riley spoke at Mason's funeral today.
Jordan Hamilton will get a second 10-day contract from the Clippers.
Stephen Curry on if he pays attention to media on MVP race: "Yeah, I watch TV. It's hard not to see it."
Matt Barnes and Jamal Crawford will not practice Friday. Barnes might play Sun., per Doc. Crawford won't. Griffin still unknown
Neil Smith: "for people rejecting analytics (in management), they're going to get swept away because it's here to stay."
I wonder how he went. http://t.co/VvJNlIq7sA

Real Madrid beat Galatasaray 107-71 in Istanbul
MAAC individual awards (POY, DPOY, Coach, Sixth Man, Rookie) will be announced at 5 p.m. here in Albany. Broadcast on ESPN3.
Ironic that Syracuse stopped recruiting Derrick Jones to focus on Bryant. Now Jones will be at UNLV & won't be impacted by Cuse penalties
Mavs announced that Devin Harris is doubtful due to right hand injury and JJ Barea is questionable due to left thumb strain.
Barea (left thumb strain) is questionable, Harris (right hand injury) is doubtful & Parsons (left ankle injury) is out vs. Warriors.
Matt Barnes and Jamal Crawford won't practice today and aren't expected to play Sunday.
Blake Griffin might practice today. He was on the court dribbling. Depending on how he looks he may play Sunday against Golden State.
Here’s who’s on my Mount Rushmore of Mount Rushmore: George-W, TJ, Abe. I don’t think Teddy deserves it.
Former Rangers GM Neil Smith here indicates psychological makeup in pro sports getting lost a bit in analytics craze. Still important
It was relayed to Byron Scott that Nick Young called himself "a star." Scott: "A star in what?" Another reporter: "His own show."
... and block shots is worth a risk. Do agree there is risk with Porzingis b/c of frame, but upside substantial.
The only thing we remain to see in Istanbul is the margin of Real Madrid's victory over Galatasaray. After 30' the Madridistas lead 77-59
Floor spacing, especially from frontcourt, is insanely valuable in today's NBA. A guy who is legit floor spacer, can move his feet on D...
Strong safety Duke Ihenacho, who signed a one-year contract earlier in the week, will make $660,000 this season.
I could see Porzingis' likely range being anywhere from 4-12, honestly. Would be a great trade-up target, IMO. Upside worth it.
At U of T Sports Industry Conference. Speakers include Jason Rosenfeld, NBA analytics head and Kevin Abrams, assistant GM NY Giants TO born
Calipari on Florida: 'We haven't won the game yet...We could lose the game, then how should we be remembered? Successful, not successful?'
Byron Scott is not sure yet if Lakers practice tomorrow. But hopes Young can get some work in to play Sunday vs Dallas
To the girl in the alley outside my office window, myself and 50 other people just saw you light up that pipe for 15 minutes and drive off.
Added to tonight's injury report for the Mavs: JJ Barea (L thumb sprain) & Devin Harris (R hand injury). Both questionable vs GS (730, FSSW)
Headed to KeyArena for the Pac-12 WBB tournament. Hoping to see a lot of purple in the stands for UW-Cal tonight at 8:30. Should be fun.

Syracuse will also take a hit on the recruiting trail:"Reduction in off-campus recruiters from 4 to 2 during 6/1/15 through 5/31/17." Brutal
Porzingis' frame is a very legitimate concern, but a ton of talent.
Gary Neal taken for x-rays on his hand
Feel bad about The Cuse. They'll survive. So will Boeheim. Life goes on.
Porzingis' shooting really has a chance to be special weapon. With his height, high release, and diversity of shots he can hit, tough cover.
As expected, Nick Young not playing tonight against Memphis. Swollen left knee
New rule: the NCAA can make teams vacate wins but they have to give back all revenue they made from TV rights.
Holy Cross has fired Milan Brown, sources told ESPN.
Charles Barkley: "Memphis and Portland are the 2 best teams in the West. Golden State has best record, but (Warriors') weakness is down low"
Grand Rapids has held down top waiver spot for a long time. Now they use it to get Wolters...likely move to use as trade piece.
I'm pretty sure the phrase, "Thomas, we don't have a scholarship for you" won't come out of Tom Crean's mouth. One will open up.
Quote of the Day-- Wade: "I'm old."
It's official: Nick Young's having a bad year. So says Byron. "Either you are having a good year or you're not. He's not having a good year"
Whaaaaaaaaaaa … MacBeth????? http://t.co/Z5m35pOgKI
David Harris, who appealed to the Dolphins, re-signs with the Jets. As we noted couple weeks ago, Miami also likes Tampa LB Mason Foster.
Stevens (2/2): "but I think a lot of these guys are going to be in Celtics uniforms for a while coming, and that's encouraging."
Stevens says teams like Spurs have thrived in part b/c of roster continuity. "Obviously, there's going to continue to be some change … (1/2)
