What do we think of this reference to "Blackskins"? Over the line, dead on or somewhere in between?indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/2014/12/20/i-j…
I'm switching up on Beast Mode. I was wrong about Marshawn. Like his team that actually knows how to honor Native Americans, he gets it.
Best thing about having to go to Canada for work: Netflix in Canada streams Fresh Prince episodes.
Pau Gasol took his teammate to the opera, which furthers proves that he would have been the perfect Spur.
I will be very annoyed if Kobe doesn't play here on Christmas.
Kobe getting annihilated on the internets today
It's easier to blame Kobe than ask why his coach can't draw up a play as soon as he steps on the court, I guess.
Manu Ginobili is shooting 39.3% this year and takes a lot of game-winner attempts, and no one argues.
Actual show pages like Homeland are so propaganda-laden and worried about criticism they don't absorb feedback and just RT fluff. Watch this
Getting all this "You don't know Marshawn" feedback. It's educational. Thank you.
Teams with fewer road wins than the Sixers: Charlotte, Minnesota and New York.
NBC 6 with a well-done tribute to Joe Rose, who at this moment is making his final TV appearance after 22 yrs. Will remain on local radio.
That's Charlotte's challenge in trying to move Stephenson. Pacers were worn out by season's end & he had Hornets exasperated in record time
Weekend Trade Rumble: Heard various Pacers were asked if Indy should try to bring Lance Stephenson back. Response NOT one of encouragement
If I had a dollar for every time someone said the Spurs are nearing their end, I could buy the Clippers.
At 33, Rob Zepp is oldest player to make his NHL debut with the Flyers. Neil Little, who 30 on March 28, 2002 at Carolina.
Really looking forward to a live glimpse of Spurs East tomorrow night. Six players with a PER of 15+. If only the Hawks had a cool hashtag
Remember Steelers, Packers, Seahawks and Patriots were all in dire straits earlier this season? Great organizations know it's not a sprint.
When the Lakers go out to dinner together, does Kobe spend the whole night eating off Jeremy Lin’s plate?
Yep, an Arizona team with a minimum of 11 wins will end up going to the sub-.500 NFC South champ for a Wildcard game. That's absurd.
What Lynch run was better - tonight's or the Saints one?
Richard Sherman and Marshawn Lynch are linked because of their edge, their attitude. But one oozes purpose, the other: rebel without a clue.
The NFC better cheer hard for the Rams, if that would even do anything. Can't see anyone beating the Seahawks in Seattle.
Just met a kind lady who married a longtime Globe typesetter, attended Ted Williams’ final game & was once kissed on the cheek by Teddy too.
Michael Carter-Williams joked that he and Nerlens Noel should fight more since they won. He made it clear there's no rift between the two.
Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel had a heated exchange during tonight's win vs ORL. Brett Brown said he loved the passion/intensity.
Kyle Korver's response to NOT making Team USA? He's merely trying to assemble the first 50/FIFTY/90 season EVER
Small world. We've found Matty D in Chitown
"You know it's real when you are who you think you are" http://t.co/iLqan55NR1
Drake looks like an old witch trying to sell Bruno evil potions http://t.co/kUv2li6rGZ
With that, other than a year-end piece, I'm off until near new year's. Only tweets about the holidays in Nova Scotia for the next week.
BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall is on Memphis TV. http://t.co/mTOycqVDxG
40° in Minnesota on December 21? Hallelujah!
Why I notice these things & care to look them up I don't know: The Mavs have every uniform # 1 to 9 in use right now, a 1st in team history
I'm thinking the Cardinals should get tickets now if they want to see the Super Bowl.
Seahawks-Patriots Super Bowl: Who says no?
Seasons of 80+ catches, 1,000+ yards, 10+ TDs in Cowboys history: Dez Bryant 3, Terrell Owens 2, Michael Irvin 1, Miles Austin 1.
Breakfast of Champions, evidently. http://t.co/MbfFnq39eF
Lynch grabbed his crotch in midair as he turned toward the Cardinals ...
Skittles for everyone http://t.co/11lKXR9IRn
Just for that run, Marshawn Lynch should never have to speak to the media again.
What mode was that then??
LOL. That TD run was straight-up awesome.
He didn't look like he had an upset stomach there
I only have Marshawn for 3 broken tackles on that play. Ho hum.
Lynch!! That's a crazy run.
BEAST MODE INDEED
Beast. Mode. That's incredible.
BEAST. MODE. WOW.
Seeing many tweets about Cardinals' QB play, but not really any worse than the guy Jaworski hyped as one of the best ever did vs Seattle.
Had to visit once more before he retires in May. Fitting that the Broad Ripple grad has a Shaker next to his studio. http://t.co/qTa1CD4oOn
Have the Raps clinched the Titanic Division yet? Feels like we're almost approaching Magic Number time. Already
Just checked out the SNF scoring summary. Yep, Cardinals still can't cover tight ends.
Anthony Davis was an All-Star last season. He still might be the Most Improved Player.
Flip was pointed in his criticism of Wiggins' effort: "He's just gotta play harder. You can't pick and choose."
Jim Mora looking for a way he can cut Hauschka.
Robert Convington banged his knee pretty good in the game - said he was fine, trainer wanted to look at it tomorrow he said he was fine
76ers coach Brett Brown said he liked that Noel & Carter-Williams are challenging each other and communicating said thats good for the team
I'm guessing Byron meant he'd take it with a grain of salt when Kobe says he's tired. ("Oh, that's just the fatigue talking.") AK
Kurt Warner? Man the Cardinals would take Neil Lomax at this point.
Robert Convington said he never viewed getting cut by Houston as a negative - really thrilled with the opportunity he has in Philly
More festive locker room than the silent night in DEN. Miles apologized to reporters if they couldn't hear him over the noise.
Noel was asked who was right he smiled and said we were both wrong but they were good... Can see young team trying to figure things out
Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams got into a heated exchange mid-game -- after both said it helped bring up intensity of the team
More Roy: "(They're) weren’t a lot of plays called for me to get going but I just wanted to assert myself & my teammates found me."
Not a great night for Kobe. He finished with more turnovers (9) than made field goals (8).
Roy Hibbert on his 8 pt, 3 reb, 3 block first quarter: "I just wanted to change my luck and be assertive from the start."
Kobe, who was drafted just a year before Duncan, has played in 15 Christmas games to Duncan's 4.
Some thoughts on the Sixers - they like each other, they understand they're young and its about small daily improvements
Tim Duncan will play in just his 5th Christmas game. Shows how much the Spurs were ignored for marquee TV time during much of his career.
Vogel said he played the Scola-West tandem to improve spacing and scoring in the paint. Scola efficient w/ 10 pts in 20 mins.
Heat have started 13 players, which was a league-high as of last week and I assume it still is.
Memphis coach Dave Joerger was bullish on the Cavs: "They played loose and free. They've got a lot of talent ... This is a super team."
Heat had 1 lineup for the first 8 games. Since then they have started the same 5 in consecutive games five times.
I got so excited to write a Nets recap about a win the Morning After is coming early and clocks in around ~1200 words. Forgive me.
No idea the record for this, but Jarrett Jack had a double-double for his 6th team tonight. Nets, Cavs, Warriors, Hornets, Blazers, Raptors.
Serge Ibaka on Anthony Davis' 38 points: http://t.co/ehWc3pev0a
More Westbrook: http://t.co/Omy58PE3et
Just saw Raiola's A-town stomp. Wow. Just can't control himself
More Westbrook: "It's one game, so I'm not 'bout to keep answering questions about me not passing now when we lose."
Russell Westbrook was rather bristly after the game: http://t.co/tnSSvK5vxd
Westbrook: "When we won eight in a row nobody said nothing about not passing so I don't want to hear it now."
Beyond Cincinnati-Pittsburgh next Sunday night, NFL says other game times for Week 17 will be announced after tomorrow's Monday night game.
Russell Westbrook: "When we won 8 in a row, nobody said nothing about not passing. So I don't want to hear it now."
Russell Westbrook's hat is the same pattern as his shirt. This is my biggest takeaway from the game tonight.
Cincinnati-Pittsburgh announced as the season-ending NBC Sunday night game next week.
Monty Williams on Anthony Davis: "He had 38 points on 22 shots. That's about as efficient as you can be."
Monty: "It was a great, character win for us. A lot of mental toughness by both teams. We seem to be in these playoff (type) games lately."
For all of our complaints, prefer the way NBA rooms work post-game by about a thousand% over NHL style. Way more access/options with NBA.
Jrue Holiday (career-best 15 assists): "It's a big win on the road against a tough opponent."
Carlyle said he sat Robidas so he’d be fresh for return game against Dallas. Phaneuf said he was fine after hit. So endeth my hockey tweets.
Lupul states the obvious on Blackhawks: "They're a better team than us." says Leafs trying to get to that level.
Seton Hall loses at Georgia, 65-47, taking some of the luster off the Dec. 31 St. John's game, but should still be a good one.
James Jones today on LeBron's Christmas return to Miami: "There’s nothing for Miami fans to be heartbroken about. They had 4 great years."
To interpret Nick Young's decidedly NOT threatening comments: Kobe doesn't need to overexert himself, Nick is happy to shoulder the load.
Somewhere Vince Young is sitting at a Cheesecake Factory, looking at Ryan Lindley, and saying to himself, "Man I can do that!"
The ever-helpful Nick Young: "We need Kobe out there and he knows it. But he don’t need to kill himself. That’s what I’m here for."
First practices for my girls' new season - start up this week - Buckeyes (oldest) and Blue Devils (younger 2)
Andre Drummond grabbed 13 offensive rebounds tonight. The Denver Nuggets average 12.8 offensive rebounds per game, the top team in the NBA.
I imagine 49ers mgmt (surprise!) is leaking this to try to show they're in control of the situation, not Harbaugh. Half-true, but OK.
Nick Young, naturally, has a solution on reducing Kobe's workload: "Just give me the ball. I'm always down to shoulder the load."
Briscoe on what Calipari told him today: "'Just keeping working hard and he can't wait to see me next year." Cal will see him Tuesday.
I'm gonna play Madden now. If Russell Wilson's pocket presence isn't 99, something is wrong
Harbaugh wants things settled quickly to pick his next job. The 49ers want things settled quickly to get the hiring process going.
Byron quipped after loss, "We went back to basketball 101 a long time ago. ... We haven’t got to 102 yet."
Jason Witten on catching Tony Romo's record-breaker on a TD: "It was something special. We’ve been through hell and back together."
Isaiah Briscoe says he's in constant touch w/ Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker. "They're just saying they can't wait till I get up there."
I'm honestly more impressed w/ Kobe going 8-of-30 with nine TOs than I am with Orlando losing to Philly.
Byron Scott on Kobe's feedback regarding sitting: "I'm going to take what he says with a grain of salt because I know him & wants to play."
"The Spurs are dead" narrative has to be the most pointless narrative in professional sports.
"Hey, wait a sec... The emperor isn't wearing any clothes." -Jeremy Lin
Anthony Davis scored 38 points on 16 of 22 shooting.
"...and hope that I’m out there. I try to take that into account every single night."
Cardinals' biggest defensive weakness is covering TEs. Seahawks have been working to take advantage. Hit the big one there.
Kobe: "I take a lot of pride in trying to play all 82. People come and spend their hard earned money to watch us play..."
Asked about his fatigue, Kobe said, "I didn't anticipate having to try to do so much." Took 30 shots today in loss to Sacramento.
Kobe said "it might make sense" to sit out games, but stopped short of embracing the idea.
Kobe added missing a game "might make sense." Often brought up his workload, though
Anthony Davis: 38 points (on 22 FG attempts), 12 rebounds and 3 blocks... Running out of superlatives for this kid
Nene’s left eye is cut and swollen after it was on the receiving end of an elbow from one of the Morris twins.
Kobe: "I didn't anticipate having to do so much." How does he reduce workload? "I don't know. There's a lot of moving pieces right now."
Since Dec. 2, Pelicans have beaten Thunder twice, Cavaliers and Rockets, winning at OKC and at Houston
THarris: "People pay good money to bring their families to the games, and we’re not even putting on a good enough show for them.”
Nets are back to 8th seed. If season ended today, they’d face… the Raptors.
James Ennis had a career-high 16 points and three offensive rebounds. His eight overall rebounds tied his career-high.
Does Kobe think he needs rest? "There's probably not much of an option...it might make sense."
Kobe on Byron saying he might sit him a game: "Probably not much of an option really. Have to look at the body & see how it responds."
13-point deficit overcome in Kings' 108-101 win over the Lakers is largest comeback of the season
I still can't believe Kobe Bryant has 9 turnovers...amazing.
The Magic have a tendency to let mistakes eat at them. The team gets tight quickly. They're putting pressure on themselves.
The "race" for 8th seed in East might be more embarrassing than last year. 35 wins might get in. Meanwhile, 6th seed in West playing .700
Anthony Davis combined for 63 points and 22 rebounds in the two Thunder-Pelicans matchups this year. Serge Ibaka combined for 12 and 11.
Tobias Harris' right hand was wrapped after the game. He said he hurt his pinkie.
Did Wiggins need to establish himself in bounds w. both feet bef. getting ball? Cuz he didn't seem to touch ball when stepped out dribbling.
The Thunder went scoreless in the final 3:45. In that time, Russell Westbrook went 0-of-6 shooting and turned it over once.
Oh, I definitely forgot Beverley. Curry and Westbrook are asserting themselves on defense this year, too.
