HoopsHype NBA Media twitter
Of course, for the media, it's one of the best days. A front row seat to 30 minutes worth of Vin Scully stories.
If you're on imojiapp search for SHEED. I got you.
Tomorrow will be Scully's least favorite day at the ballpark. He will address the media pregame. Would rather give a statement and move on.
When I was a kid in upstate NY, I loved the serenity my parents got from sitting outside summer nights. Tonight reminds me of that.
What kind of contract would Eric Bledsoe have gotten as an unrestricted free agent? More than Kyle Lowry?
Probably shouldn't have told Beane earlier that I knew he'd make a big trade late tonight and totally screw my column. Yes, he loved that.
This is a rare summer night in Charlotte -- warm, not hot. Great night to sit on the porch and watch the deer walk through the backyard.
I don't put anything past Billy Beane, but I'm not entirely sure what they've got to beat out other bids in any Jon Lester talks.
Primary takeaways from Slick Leonard documentary: his childhood was even tougher than I knew and he was a better NBA player than I realized.
I'm not in Atlanta but know right now my Dad is yelling at the TV: "Take him out Gonzalez!!"
"It seems our freedom is up against the ropes." A line from an actual song in an actual movie about boxing in Russia
79 is a dope number for a baseball star to wear.
WHY IS HARANG STILL PITCHING?
Wife: "I thought you gave up on the Rockies?" Me: "Hard to take your eyes off the tracks when you know another train wreck is coming."
We should all buy a 6 pack and watch this movie once every 3 months and tweet it. You know, instead of spending time w/ friends and family
If Mark Davis moves the Raiders to San Antonio, I mean, there will be like hundreds of angry fans in the Bay Area.
Drago's land percentage before killing Apollo was 987,000,000,000 percent.
Also, almost just did a spit take when they announced Apollo Creed as "The Count of Monte Fisto"
McCann bailing Robertson out
Thing I never noticed abt Rocky IV before tonight - minutes before fight w/ Drago, Rocky tells Apollo to postpone it. Some friend he is.
Couldn't tweet due to Cotton Bowl signal issues but yes a good 20 people ran on to the field from the stands late in Roma vs Madrid match
Beautiful night in Oregon. Just Jo and me. Family arriving next week. Love to all. Life is Glorious! http://t.co/gqQutqeYaK
Have to say, Chipper Jones basically live-tweeting Braves games is unexpected but pretty great.
Chaos in Dallas as a dozen or so fans are running on the field during Real-Roma. Stay classy Texas
NABJ in the morning!!!!!!!! workshops, workshops, workshops!!!!
I wonder if TMZ sent a crew to Dallas. Jeter and Ronaldo hanging at the same hotel bar is legendary. "Worlds colliding."
Just watched it again. See, I wasn't lying.
Sometimes the people who can't watch the Astros in Houston should feel relieved... Like now.
Totti, Pjanic, Modric, Bale ... not your standard late July Tuesday in Big D. GRATEFUL my kids getting to see this stuff with their own eyes
Francesco Totti in person ... worth every cent. Even in a July friendly
The A's have taken the lead 5-4 on a Brandon Moss single, again with 2 outs. Sipp out. Veras in. Donaldson up.
Good practice with the kids team - focus was on rebounding and boxing out
Why is UCLA flood irrigating the court? http://t.co/hga4n66UOy
Just watched the Carl Lewis national anthem for the first time. It will not be the only time.
2 on, 2 out for Cespedes. A's trailing 4-3 in the 9th.
I like to imagine everyone talking about either Vin Scully or Celebrity Wife Swap in my timeline are subtweeting each other's TV choices.
One thing I've taken from Colangelo & Krzyzewski: They're really excited about what they've seen from Derrick Rose.
Scully: "It is very difficult to say goodbye. God willing I will be back next year."
For Dubas conspiracy theorists -- Nonis told me Leafs decision to go to 5yrs for Gardiner only came about in past week or so ...
Vin Scully began his professional baseball broadcasting career in 1950 with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Scully: "It is just too hard to say goodbye to all these friends."
Next season will be Vin Scully's unprecedented 66th season in the broadcast booth for the Dodgers.
Scully: "Naturally there will come a time, when I will have to say goodbye, but I’ve soul-searched and this is not the time."
If Morse can hit a HR tonight, MAYBE Uggla can get a hit
Dodger fans came to the ballpark tonight thinking a Scully microphone would be the best present. Not. Even. Close.
could watch this montage of Adrian Beltre flipping out when people rub his head on loop forever
Standing ovation for Vin Scully as his return for next season is announced. He waves at the fans and hugs his wife.
Maybe, just maybe the other 70% of L.A. will be able to hear Vin Scully call games next season.
Vin Scully will be returning for the 2015 season.
Wait CarGo what?
Celtics rookie Marcus Smart really opening eyes as member of Select Team in scrimmages vs Team USA. Going up against Kyrie, Rose, Wall, etc.
Ongoing joke among JSBL regulars has been T&T Coast is 'resting everyone for the postseason.' No, but when everyone shows, they're tough
Wednesday's JSBL semis: Larson Ford-Horn Law Group and Sterns Trailer-T&T Coast. Not quite chalk, but those are pretty intriguing.
JSBL nightcap: T&T Coast 114, Seaview Jeep 97. Defending champ is out, T&T stops sandbagging and gets everyone in the gym finally.
Josh Fields takes over for Feldman in the eighth. STRONG start for Feldman. Strong enough to get some of those Player of the Game votes.
Eric Moreland, a shot-blocking force in Summer League, will sign a three-year deal with the Sacramento Kings, league sources tell RealGM.
My mom just texted me that she's watching Plaxico Burress and DJ Paul on Celebrity Wife Swap. America is great.
Farrell: Workman will start tomorrow.
Eric Moreland tweets that he has joined the Sacramento Kings organization. Moreland played with the Kings' Las Vegas Summer League team.
I got more rhymes than Carl Sagan's got turtlenecks
Hearing: ex-Knick Metta World Peace is close to agreeing to terms with the Sichuan Blue Whales of the Chinese Basketball Association.
I miss MCA.
What possible benefit could Donnie Nelson see from telling media "we were considering Aminu at 2.7m exception but suckered him into minimum"
Hornbeak and Roy Mabrey had some words at the end of that game. You could see that one brewing for a while before it finally popped off.
I came home to my 28-month old daughter telling me she was "strategizing" as she was playing with her toys. This can't end well.
Mark Jackson just retweeted Stephen A. Smith's apology, obviously.
Lleyton Hewitt must love playing tennis. He has to be way past the point of needing the money. All his peers on senior tour.
The Rays are something the Brewers aren't: clutch. Sigh.
Grossman ruled safe on the stolen base. Hard to tell on the replays from various angles as they review it. Close play.
Not really feelin the Big 10 -unless there is a major big time collapse it's all Ohio State- may have to check out SEC Network.
The Cubs-Rockies game is in the 3rd inning....90min in to the game...so the 7th inning stretch..over-under at 10pm?
Soria topping out at 89? Maybe Jon Daniels knew something?
Now told by someone at Pauley Pavilion that there is six inches of water on the court.
Stay hot, Reddick.
And Steil says J.O. Berrios left his AA start tonight with shoulder soreness.
For those that missed it, set your DVRs for WFYI at 9pm on Aug. 7, the night before he's inducted into the HOF. DVDs will be sold soon after
Predictably, Hornbeak said close friend and fellow-Arlington native Micah Seaborn turned into Monmouth's biggest recruiter. Stories coming.
Had an opportunity to talk to Je'lon Hornbeak for the first time after Horn Law Group's win as we touched on a number of subjects.
I just wrote a mailbag that was about 2,500 words. Computer died. It's gone. RIP my entire day.
Just saw "Slick Leonard: Heart of a Hoosier." Tremendous production on his entire life. Definitely a must-see for Indiana basketball fans.
New NBPA executive director Michele Roberts grew up a Knicks fan in the Bronx, has had season tickets to Wizards games and loves basketball.
Donnie Nelson on Chandler Parsons trying out for Team USA: "It's a testament to his improvement and his hard work as a player.''
Final: Horn Law Group 97, Team Shore 81. That was a really good JSBL game for 3.5 quarters. HLG to tomorrow night's semis
Rolando McClain left practice due to stomach virus, not injury.
Jerry says DeMarcus Lawrence is getting X-ray on his right ankle and foot.
Money time at Wall as Horn Law Group leads Team Shore, 87-78, with 3:34 to go
Rice University just received commitment from Jarrey Foster -- 6-5 wing from Houston North Shore.
Here's another photo -- up-close -- of Pauley Pavilion floor. Can't imagine it could be salvaged. http://t.co/v6UhVTJUeF
Pauley Pavilion was renovated a couple years ago. Look at it right now. Court likely ruined. http://t.co/mJuEUzDLXY
Moreland is definitely worth a look and invite to training camp
Al-Farouq Aminu wound up signing a 2-year deal worth $2.1 million. The second year, at $1.1 million, is a player's option.
I'm definitely buying stock in Eric Moreland. Love players who know their role..he showed that in summer league with shot blocking & reb
Blazers fans know they have 15 roster spots filled, right?
Here is a photo of UCLA men's basketball locker room. Flooding. http://t.co/latTmyyCny
Maybe Jack White just isn't a baseball guy.
Off to coach practice for my girls' team - 7-8 year old boys + my 6 & 8 yr old pair - my 6yr old scored twice last game
To the fourth: Horn Law Group 69, Team Shore 67
This isn't a sight the Cowboys wanted to see, especially after D-line injury disaster last year. http://t.co/xk6tuk52KC
DeMarcus Lawrence sprained his right ankle.
The Sacramento Kings have reached agreement with summer league forward Eric Moreland on a free agent contract, league sources tell RealGM.
Rookie DE DeMarcus Lawrence limps off the field after rep against Tyron Smith. Might have sprained ankle.
Roy Mabrey for 3 and things have picked up considerably. Team Shore and Horn Law Group are tied at 61 with 3:36 left in the third
Loving the answers, yall! To clarify: Altuve's an All-Star. No doubt he's had better overall season. But how about the month, him or Carter?
Been told UCLA weight room is in bad shape & water is nearly knee-high in locker room -- with Jaylen Brown set to visit in less than a week.
Apparently, Yanks & Real Madrid are at same Dallas hotel. The battle of all time greats - Jeter vs Ronaldo - begins at lobby bar at midnight
Rose on Bulls management in Vegas: "I take my hat off to the Bulls, calling me, checking on me, texting me, and really just giving advice."
