DRose on how torn meniscus on Nov. 22 changed his attitude: “I knew that I couldn’t be mad or be in that place for a whole year again."
Derrick Rose on his failed 10-game comeback last season: “I think that was just a dark side for me, a dark period of time.”
Jim Barnett showing little kids the fundamentals of the pick and roll is like Mr. Rogers putting on his sweater.
Bayless and Bucks agreed to deal while SL team was in Las Vegas but now official. Source said it is 2 years for $6 million.
The NBA is giving new meaning to the phrase “Basketball Twitter."
Jim Barnett, 70 years young http://t.co/HbzTsSGMml
Michael Irvin is here. No one is booing. You've gone soft, Philly. You're basically Milwaukee now.
Got to give props to Ben Cherrington GM of the Red Sox----he's had a very productive day. Savvy and effective.
The NBA has added its Twitter handle to its official game ball http://t.co/1hglFH0ns1
The Blazers announce there will be a public celebration of life for Dale Schlueter on August 10th at 2PM at the Memorial Coliseum.
Bucks introduce Jerryd Bayless this morning at Cousins Center and he speaks to media after signing 2-year deal.
The Spurs' offense is deadly when Manu is on the floor, so it's understandably a priority to eliminate any unnecessary risk.
Don't think the Manu situation is a "controversy." He broke his foot, Spurs set a timetable and they are protecting their investment.
Just woke up, Argentine National team & Manu Ginobili made it official - he won't play in the 2014 World Cup.
Think I may try and head to the Sox-Yankess game tomorrow night. Parking may run me more than a ticket now.
The Amway Coaches' PR Guys Who Skimmed Athlon For Five Minutes Poll.
Good morning, Sweet Vegas!! 94 degrees already. Lordy Lordy, Michael Jordy.
Seems doubtful, but if Ben Cherington gets Cespedes, then does re-sign Lester in offseason, he should just drop mic and walk out of presser.
Pre-Season Coaches Poll - #4 Oregon, #7 UCLA, #11 Stanford, #15 USC, #18 Arizona State, #25 Washington
Man, I miss NBA hoops.
New NBA gameball for 2014-15 season has the league's twitter handle (@nba) on it. http://t.co/f2vu1UeO2t
College football is hopelessly addicted to voting on things, and then getting outraged about the results. Never going away, I guess.
Jazz have a decision to make on guard Ian Clark. His contract for 2014-15 becomes fully guaranteed tomorrow. Dennis Lindsey: "No comment."
NBA adding Twitter handle to official game ball. http://t.co/oeYKUPtEN0
Let's start a rumor that Billy Beane is going after Kevin Love....
Does anyone know of any pro athletes who are big-time gamers?
One of the great things about the Web is that if you don't want to read a story we write, you don't have to. Ignore it. We'll be just fine.
The in-game experience for me is 1,000 times better when Jim Dolan and his boss, Irving Azoff, are in attendance. "Extremely important."
Loyal Bucks radio listener Joan Weidler has passed at age 94. Joan lost her eyesight and enjoyed listening to me on the radio. Condolences.
I thought one of the benefits of the playoff era was that we don't have to pay attention to polls anymore.
Mavs preseason sked is out. Home: HOU (10/7), OKC (10/10), IND (10/12), MEM (10/20). Road: CLE (10/17), IND (10/18), NO (10/23), ORL (10/24)
Love that Knicks ask customers how important celebrity attendance is to in-game experience. (The NY Times answered "extremely important")
Why did it take Ray Rice so long to say what he's saying right now?
"The last thing I want my daughter to do is regret me. The last thing I want my wife to do is live in fear." - Ray Rice
But the A's do not have a RH hitter with Cespedes' presence. Also Cespedes has proven he can hit good pitching in the playoffs. Big loss.
Kory Lichtensteiger was listed at 284 pounds last year and is listed at 296 pounds this year. He weighed in at 300 pounds today.
Fake Twitter account issue as much about accounts, as media outlets who rush to air with news w/o taking 15 seconds to realize they're fake.
The first matchup against Chandler Parsons will come early -- Rockets will take on Mavericks in Dallas on October 7th in preseason action.
Whose idea was it to make the Toronto mayoral campaign 9 months? I'm anti-public beheadings, but...
MLB /Fox-pulled the story--fake report
Since July 1, Beane has traded Russell, McKinney, Straily, Cespedes and Milone for Samardzija, Hammel, Lester, Gomes and Fuld.
That trade deadlines have also become days for handwringing over the tyranny of humourless fake Twitter accounts is just delightful.
OK this is a little weird to see. http://t.co/Xl7YJCX9CJ
Going to be real tough for Angels to catch A's now#Angels
Also think Chavez's recent struggles are almost as big as Hammel's. Need 4 starters in the playoffs and A's had 3 good ones. Lester makes 4.
No doubt the A's are going to miss Cespedes in the middle of the order; but "two-time HR Derby champion" is NOT something Beane values.
Most surprising part of competition was when James Harden blocked a Kevin Durant layup & talked smack to him. Those guys were going hard
Yoenis Cespedes incredibly got thrown out by Billy Beane.
The NBA regular season starts Oct. 28. The schedule will be released in mid-August.
The Chris Johnson addition will turn out bigger than Decker. Not only plenty left in tank, but can catch out of backfield. Serious weapon.
Got to give the front offices of the Red Sox and A's a ton of credit--no leaks on this one...no one saw this coming between the two clubs.
Veteran center Yaniv Green reached a one-year extension agreement with Hapoel Jerusalem, according to source.
Last thing on Jets: Stephen Hill’s clock is about to expire. How long do you wait on a prospect that just isn’t developing?
Think Billy Beane trades Klay Thompson?
Rampant Jets optimism needs to be quelled. Two critical positions - QB and CB - are too unpredictable. And first half of the sked is brutal.
Billy Beane has stolen twitter. He will be trading it later today for a second baseman.
What happened? Beane improvised and made yet another bet on the now vs. two years from now. It's a risk, but it's damned fun to watch.
Two days ago, Beane also said he probably wasn't making another big move & suggested Cespedes' pending 2016 free agency wasn't a big deal...
It’s good the Sawx didn’t deal Lester to the O’s, but they got a great return. Sorta what Yanks should have considered w/ Cano last year?
I don't know about you but Brad Pitt is one heck of a GM....
Lester, Gray, Samardzija, Kazmir at Bob Melvin's disposal in any playoff scenario -- or down the stretch of AL West race. That's the point.
Beane to me a couple days ago: "This is the kind of week as a kid you dream of having this job...
A's starting pitching- nasty. Jason Hammel....good luck to you.
Love this trade for the Red Sox--huge Cespedes fan.
Parsons won't have to wait long to play his former team. Mavs open the preseason at home against the Rockets on 10/7
Mavs preseason schedule is up under "letsgomavs" on Cyber Dust
Pretty much every athlete is "on a mission," right? AK
Ray Rice...Rex Ryan (foot fetish videoist, wifeswapper)...Big Ben date-raper..guess it's time to learn how to separate athlete from the man.
This Cespedes trade will haunt the A's. I get the raw numbers, but there's something to be said for flair/chemistry. Think it's "over-GMing"
By my quick count, it looks as if the A's will get about 12 starts from Jon Lester before the playoffs
Football Outsiders Almanac, a great read for NFL fans/stat geeks, has mean projection for Cowboys at 6.9 wins.
From Boston Globe: "Jon Lester, the most accomplished left-handed pitcher in Red Sox history, has been traded..." That's a wow sentence
Before Olympiacos at TCF Bank Stadium on Saturday, Manchester City played Liverpool before near-capacity 49,653 Wednesday at Yankee Stadium.
Bayless meeting with media at Cousins Center today, but Bucks release amusingly didn't say anything about him actually signing with Bucks.
Big summer for Avery Bradley. First $$ extension. Now he's officially Boston's foremost pro athlete out of Bellarmine Prep in Tacoma, Wash.
Red Sox were reluctant to deal Lester to a team (LAD) that might keep him as a FA this winter. Lester has said he'd like to return to Bos.
The Oakland A's have some of the coolest uniforms in baseball. Maybe the coolest overall.
A look at 4:01 pm, if the Phillies make no meaningful moves http://t.co/I79UJCbl0Z
For those asking, Stephen Holt will play in Germany for Ludwigsburg first division team.
Good luck in Oakland for 3 months, @jlester31 - thanks for 2007 + 2013, was fun watching you grow into an ace. See you on the 2015 Sox.
