Not counting rookie deals and when I say "bargain" I'm talking about guys making less than $6 million. But, yes, lots of good candidates.
During this Bulls road trip I might write the definitive history of Soulja Boy's Twitter bios and Instagram captions.
Jamal Crawford at $5.4 million this season and $5.5 million next season is the best bargain in the NBA. He's certainly outplayed that deal.
Barely use Facebook. Not on IG or Tinder. So I'm not sweating it.
Blizzard tweets are making me really psyched to fly to New York in two weeks!
I just went to Facebook and got the "Which Fail Whale Are You?" quiz.
Whatever happened to the push for Cesaro?
Bjork album is flames.
Hackers have taken over the Facebook, but they can't have the Twitter.
"So many people should be liking my photos right now."
Blame the snow.
Without Facebook and Instagram, some teenage kid just looked over at that book on his desk. He thought for 2 seconds. Fired up SnapChat.
DeAndre Jordan said he won't be in the slam dunk contest if he's not an all-star for pride reasons. The league always asks though.
DeAndre Jordan told me if he is named an all-star he would also participate in the slam dunk contest. If not, he'll be back home in Houston.
Jamal Crawford - I don't need to score 50 on this team - but he made sure to say "I can still score 50'
Apparnently, when Big Baby came out of the game in the 2nd, his message to the bench centered on a sausage and pepper sandwich, per Blake
Blake said Big Baby was talking about a sausage-pepper sandwich coming out of a timeout: "I don't want mayonnaise. I want meat and bread."
I think I just broke Friendster too, guys
Jj Redick will participate in the three-point contest at All-Star weekend for the first time in his career
The last time Redick was in a three-point shooting contest? "McDonalds All-American game...champion."
J.J. Redick will be in the three-point shooting contest at All-Star weekend. "It's something I've always wanted to participate in," he said.
Doc said the Clippers won't panic and sign someone if Barnes is out for any length of time. Doc's still waiting on the "buyout season" guys.
Texas is the weirdest team in the country. Their pieces make no sense together, and their best player is only getting 22 minutes a game.
Doc Rivers: "We lose this game four weeks ago, for sure."
Doc: "We lose this game four weeks ago for sure."
Matt Barnes has an abdominal strain the Clippers are monitoring. He left the court gingerly.

Twitter technical assistance: my computer has decided not to display vine videos. Any idea why?

Another close call goes the Clippers' way. Jamal Crawford, a 91% free throw shooter, misses the second one but gets the ball back.
Jamal splits on 2 FT's, but he gets his own rebound and is headed back to the line with 1.7 left.
Crawford misses!!! But Clippers get offensive board - and now Denver on last last legs
Having timeouts would be helpful here for Denver.
Lots of close calls for the Clippers at the end of this one but they're all going their way so far.
Clippers almost turn it over, but get the ball in to Crawford.
Clippers up 99-98 with 6.7 left over Denver - who foul Crawford after almost forcing a TO - 5.1 left on clock now
Clippers 99, Nuggets 98 with 6.7 seconds left. Clippers ball.
I CAN'T STOP RETWEETING THINGS
Clippers foul Arthur with 6.7 left -- he makes both. 99-98
Clippers do a better job getting in the foul on the 2nd try - that 1st one was ???
That's going to be called a shooting foul more than 50% of the time but not this time.
Clippers tried to foul down 3, looked like Gallo was going up, but LAC gets the break.
Matt Barnes foul - Nuggets irate it's not a shooting foul - Brian Shaw past half court to plead his case
It's hard for me to square that being a non-shooting foul with the way the NBA officiates continuation.
Should be a shooting foul.
He was absolutely shooting
That aint in the act of shooting?
I"m pretty sure Gallo was shooting there...
Oh ---- that was close
Q: "Basically everything we did lacked. Sometimes you just have to execute harder and better. That’s to me what it was about.”
OK, if you're not watching, watch. Altitude. 9 seconds left, Clippers up 99-96, Denver ball. Crawford has 18 in fourth.
Darrell Arthur was tremendous on that switch.
Nuggets have a chance after a quick 2 - and a Chris Paul miss - 99-96 9.0 left - OT?

Another Clippers' stop - Jamal Crawford to the line for 3 FT - chance to put the game away-ish with 49 seconds left LAC up 96-94
Clippers run a play to get a Jamal a 3 -- and he gets fouled.
Clippers are still upset that Blake lob to DeAndre was called basket interference. Pretty clear Blake was passing it to DeAndre.
Q on the first half: “We didn’t play hard. Maybe it’s a little more complicated than that, but we played soft as much as anything."
That save by Crawford is a good of a pass as you'll see all year
A picture of Ballmer doing the Hogan to fire up the crowd. http://t.co/A2mAljUHhu
Jamal Crawford did not just do that. What a save and pass.
This Nuggets game is super-scintilating... how heartbreaking would it be if they lost this was like last night's?
This is probably the loudest Staples has been for a Clippers game and the most fired up the Clippers have been in a while.
Another unreal play -- scramble for a loose ball and CP floats it ahead to Jamal, who saves it behind his back to Barnes for a layup.
Blake Griffin with a game saving block? Usually not his forte - then Jamal Crawford saved a long pass to Matt Barnes - big save - LAC up 2
Darrell Arthur should play 48 minutes a game.
Clippers Nuggets tied at 94 with 2 mins to go
Tied up at 94 - 2 minutes left - Clippers ball - Jamal Crawford doing some work here for LAC

Nurkic was born two months AFTER the OJ Simpson car chase.
Anybody else just lose power? No, you say. Just me. Good times.
Minor concern: Steven Adams said he been getting sporadic but "random" migraines since he was 14. Been trying to figure out "trigger points"
They're replaying the Royal Rumble out here ... this triple threat wasn't bad....
One of the problems with Hawes is his reluctance to shoot. Even if he's missing, he needs to be a threat for defenses to respect his range.

Clippers fans REALLY love Big Baby. Gets the loudest cheers outside of CP3/Blake/DJ/Jamal.
Big Baby is trying to single-handily trying to fire up this crowd.
We used to have an expression for Superstorm Juno in Syracuse; May.
Spencer Hawes is becoming borderline unplayable.
I'm into Summer Bird, employee of Don Stockton
The only player the Nuggets shouldn't consider moving is Jusuf Nurkic.
End of a flat 3rd quarter, and the Clippers trail 77-69.
Finally about to listen to this Bjork album.
Nurky! Denver 77, LAC 69
Jusuf Nurkic is going to be so good when he grows up.

The Jazz released Elliott Williams tonight. His second 10-day contract ran out, wasn't signed for the remainder of the season
Ty Lawson is wrecking the Clippers defense right now
After hearing a Pats attendant took a sack of balls into the bathroom for 90 seconds, I'm not sure how the NFL keeps a straight face anymore
Clippers fans are chanting "DUI! DUI! DUI!" when Ty Lawson's at the free-throw line.
No deal reached between Langston Galloway and New York, and both sides will carry over negotiations Tuesday, league sources tell RealGM.
Strong vibe I get is we're all gonna love All-Star Weekend 3-point contest ... with both Kyle Korver AND Steph Curry being lined up to duel
Bill Belichick returns tomorrow: "I've spent far too much time on an experiment to see how long ballboys take to urinate."
Biggest X-Factor with this locker room attendant: Stage fright.
Tayshaun Prince: "I came in and told the guys at halftime, 'This game is far from over.'" Prince helped C's get thru rough patches of game.
Three Girl Scouts were selling cookies outside media center tonight. Mom was telling people they accept credit cards. Young entrepreneurs
How big is Gortat to what WAS does? Pretty darn important, I'd say. Now stack his numbers versus Valanciunas in TOR. You may be surprised

Snyder: tonight Dante looked really tired to me. So u substituted trey in the second half

DeAndre is blocking Gatorade cups tossed in the garbage, swatting towels tossed to the equipment manager, erasing every DEN warmup jumper.
Marcus Smart returned tonight and played well after losing a family member this week. He says, "It was difficult, but this is my life."
Quin Snyder on tonight: we played soft. We didn't play with any force
10 of those 12 Clippers field goals were at the rim. They were 10/12 in the paint in the second quarter
Dewayne Dedmon's 10-point, 10-rebound performance was his first NBA double-double.
The Clippers shot 12/19 (63 percent) in the 2nd Q. Got it going on the defensive end & turned that into instant offense.
The bottom of the East playoff bracket ... might actually be fun!
After winning three of four, Stevens says, "It's been a fun trip to be a part of." Could get even better with another W on Wednesday, coach!

Clippers 50 - Nuggets 47 at the half - biggest lead for LAC - Denver was up 16
Watching Nadal get smoked and trying to decide whether we blame Kobe, Belichick or the Knicks. Fine, ARod.
The Boston Celtics could really make the playoffs. Just a couple games out of 8th spot. So much for a chance at Okafor.
That was dreadful defense by Denver -- Clippers get a dunk on final play of half, lead 50-47 after trailing by 16 in 1st Q.
The Clippers were down 16 points in the 2nd quarter but stormed back to take a 50-47 lead on the Nuggets going into halftime.
Halftime: Clippers 50, Nuggets 47. The Clips came back from a 16-pt deficit.
Potentially crazy opinion: I think DeAndre Jordan has been the best player in the Clippers frontcourt this year.
DeAndre The Giant. AK
DJ with back-to-back blocks. He's second in the league in blocked shots, averaging 2.4 a game.
DeAndre Jordan may not make the all-star team but he's showing why he should get serious consideration this quarter.
Blake Griffin lobbing for the reverse DeAndre dunk was quite nifty - DJ is having a game - Clippers suddenly in the lead were down 16
Jordan with 3 blocks on 2 Denver possessions and slams home a lob.
Welcome to the DeAndre Jordan show.
Wow. DJ just slammed the ball from behind.
After trailing by 16, the Clippers just took their first lead of the game, 46-45, after a great give-and-go from Blake to CP back to Blake.
Keys to the game, according to Stevens: "I thought our older guys made a lot of really savvy bball plays & our younger guys made some shots"
DeAndre Jordan's all-star submission sequence --- INITIATED
LMAOOOOO im glad Lawler caught himself before we had a redux of the Haddadi incident
I love how Nurkic does a crazy chuckle after he does anything well.
Brad Stevens on Celtics bench play: "The bench really did its job both times pushing the lead out at the end of the first and early fourth."
Nurkic heard Clippers announcers say that DJ should have "a field day" with him
19 of the final 36 Jazz games are against elite level opponents and 8 of the next 10.
Breaking: Ekpe Udoh just raised the roof
My view from dinner http://t.co/WirE3edgqC
Flip said after 92-84 loss at OKC that Mo is "pretty questionable" for Wednesday the way he played late in game after hurting hip on Sunday
Your leader in points (19), assists (5) and minutes (30) for the Celtics tonight? Tayshaun Prince.
At beginning of this season I highlighted last 20 games. Jazz went 10-10. 8 of next 10 against Western Conference playoff teams.
I wouldn't be surprised if the Hawks ownership situation is not resolved until after the playoffs. Why sell first and let others take credit
The Celtics win three games in five nights on the road against the Western Conference after not winning any for 21 months. Sounds right.
So, for those of us hoping for a quick resolution to the ownership situation, I would say don't count on it.
99-90, Boston is the final. Boston Celtics wins in Western Conference cities.. Last five days: 3 Previous 705 Days: 0
The Celtics up their record to 3-2 on the trip with a 99-90 W in Utah. Prince scored 19, while Smart had 9 and 5 asts http://t.co/jYxXda9ZRX
It's understandable. When Levenson announced his intention to sell, who knew that the Hawks would be title contenders this season?
Not the best second half, but some solid play down the stretch. And what a first half. Celtics at 3-2 out West so far. Wow.
Jazz lose 99-90 to the Celtics. One of those frustrating performances for fans
But this exchange between Koonin and Aldridge illustrates with crystalline clarity how the current ownership would like to hang around.
I mean this kindly: I got many Seth Curry questions on Twitter today. Anyone who thinks Seth would help the Hornets short-term at PG...
Koonin's response: "Why? You know, it ain't broke." He then explains Hawks owners are not in a rush to sell. News flash, Steve. It is broke.
