Pop, the music critic: "If you can't dance to it, it's not music." I think I agree.
Loud rap music from Grizz weight room pumping thru walls during Pop pregame presser. Pop: "This is one of the things that helps you retire."
For Made's & his cohorts' information, Kareem did not dominate last 2 seasons, especially--14.6/10.1P ...6.0/4.5R. Similar playoff numbers.
Lionel Hollins says he'll stick w/ same lineup. Only change: Donte Green active instead of Austin Daye.
1 correction from earlier for FC Dallas, Matt Hedges out of starting XI but on sub list. Ends strk of 34 consec starts at CB. On now, TXA21
ESPN has 2 ex-players saying what MG needs 2 do 2nite. Madge feels they ought 2 slow it down & play HC. And Jalen doesn't disagree#What!!!!
Which rumor have you seen this week that has the most likely chance of happening? DB
First Bruins/Penguins Conference Finals match-up since 1991. AKA Jagr's rookie year
A handshake is just a handshake.
The league has reviewed plays from last night and while nothing has happened yet -- and might not tonight -- it could happen tomorrow
Madge credits Vogel for "rallying" the Pacers 2 get up 4 Game 2 after he botched end of Game I. Really? How exactly did this coach do this?
Beale Street is off the chain. http://t.co/SJkb5Kwd6B
Jam du jour: "Everything In Its Right Place" by Radiohead.
Like that the Bruins are trying to get a third goal rather than just hanging on.
Lionel Hollins says Donte Greene will be active in place of Austin Daye for Game 3
NBA still reviewing Dwyane Wade elbow on Lance Stephenson. The fact that both teams traveled today no doubt has delayed matters.
SF Giants beat Rockies on walk-off inside-the-park HR… anyone see that coming?
Hmmm…firstrow1.eu's live-stream of the Bruins game isn't working. Anyone recommend a different live-stream link?
We have a 1-hour NBA Countdown show coming at 8et on ESPN before Spurs-Grizz Game 3 - live from THE GRINDHOUSE. Psyched to be here.
Grizzlies activating Dante Greene and deactivating Austin Daye.
Is there a link to In game Blackhawks game ops video of the Sweater being stitched with franchise greats It is the best in hockey
Quite the comeback for Syracuse in lacrosse.
Maybe it's because I've avoided airplane bathrooms for years, but when did it become normal to hang coffee bags in there as air freshner?
Should Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri decide 2 accept offer 2 rule Raptors' front office, it would b like they traded Kiki V without compensation.
So I am in Indianapolis. Because I'm racing in the Indy 500 tomorrow, obviously.
My dad is going nuts over Krug. He hasn't been this excited about an out-of-nowhere Bruin since Craig Janney.
Brown and Kratz with back-to-back jacks
Thanks for the responses. Will have to catch the replay of the earlier rounds.
great throw by Kratz.
Thirdly, Conley, a conservative when it comes 2 pushing ball, tho better this yr, must put SA on heels. Zach must set up house b4 defense
Froch has two high level wins, first over Bute, now Kessler, since losing to Ward. For that reason, I'd get excited about a rematch
Froch wins, 118-110, 116-112, 115-113
Also, Gasol MUST shoot more 2 keep help defenders occupied. Like Stockton told me, "Sometimes you've got 2b selfish 4 the good of the team."
MG do not win G-3 unless Hollins devises play 2 get him ball quickly on block (off dive) f Gasol after guards cut by & take defenders w them
Watching the Phillies tonite and Ryan Howard, hitting .262, owed $98M the next 4 years.
The Coliseum in Oakland had a great view of the mountains until Al Davis ruined it.
The view of the Capitol from Nationals Park is one of the coolest in baseball. Can't stop staring.
Just watched Hangover III; it's terrible. I don't understand why people like these movies so much. Raunchy humor just doesn't do it for me.
Quick poll... who are the rooting for: Heat or Pacers?
Beale Street before a Grizz playoff game is a scene. Wow.
Something just popped on my TV screen called The Tim McCarver Show. He's interviewing Mark Messier. I swear. You can't make this stuff up.
By borderline reckless, meant it could be perceived as unintentional. Those who say rep should be held against him have a point. We'll see.
Despite the elements, at least Yankee Stadium finally has a decent crowd.
Good news with Otto and strength, though: he's not even 20 yet (younger than many freshmen) and can put on weight on that frame.
Still nothing from the league on possible discipline for Wade.
Who are you rooting for tonight? SAS or MEM? Why? MEM has more ex-Hornets (no ex-Pels yet!) and sent us Greivis? Spurs have black unis? - 42
What do you tell your friend whose 1-year old son appears to be on his way to a wicked mullet?
I'm at Yankee Stadium for Chelsea-Man City. The only thing worse than no Balotelli? No sun. It is absolutely freezing here...and raining.
Sutter said Chicago Stadium was loudest arena he'd ever be in. "If you’re thinking San Jose is close, I’d say it’s significantly different."
Darryl Sutter on the Shark Tank: "What’s the big deal? It’s loud there? It’s not like our building hasn’t been loud."
Myck Kabongo had a very strong workout against Shane Larkin and Phil Pressey in Boston.
I'd be surprised if Kings hire coach before dealing with GM situation. Though GSW once hired P.J. Carlesimo with no GM in place.
For the sake of conserving what we've seen thus far in ECF, I hope Dwyane Wade isn't suspended for last night's borderline reckless elbow.
Gues you could say Arjen robbed Dortmund of a chance to win the Champions League.
"They deserved it, and, err...............yeah." - Michael Ballack's post-game assessment on Sky. Glad he's here.
C'mon Gus... Why are you prattling on. It's television. Let the pictures tell the story.
Robben is no longer "Dancing on my own."
Oh holy shit that Robben goal.
That's Arjen Robben.
I'm enjoying the reaction shots of the 2 coaches - German Billionaire Mike Breen and German Hipster Jamie Lannister.
Now that was a world-class leave!
If Robben had a modicum of athleticism he might be the best player in the world.
In completely unrelated news, it's just dawned on me how much Jay Bilas looks like the older brother of the De Boer twins.
Boateng is a flopper. The penalty for flopping is an ankle stomp. It's in the manual.
Things I love about that video, in no order: The Redick diss, Duncan's non-acting, the younger Bonner and, above all, the editing/cuts
Is there somebody Lance Stephenson forgot to pay protection money to? Man does everybody love to beat that guy up.
I'm not afraid to say my rock-heavy ears like Macklemore. I also like Gladwell and 'Ten Thousand Hours' should be a great song, but eh.
Subotic...love that name. Great save.
We're headed for a "Law Of Gus" moment, you can feel it.
Gus Johnson must be sitting next to the Fox Deportes team, because he's spilling over to the spanish broadcast. Or maybe he's rows away.
Jays lose 6-5 as Lawrie looks at a pretty clear third strike to end things.
EE, Lind and Lawrie will swing for the fences in the 9th. 6-5 O's heading into the bottom of the inning.
Mens Sana Siena wins Game 1 of the semifinals in Varese 80-72
Jays ain't scurried. Down 6-5 after back-to-back two-out hits themselves.
It seems 90 percent of Warriors fans don't want Dwight, and 90 percent of Lakers fans want him gone. That's saying something
I did not and do not deal hash. But I know a guy who knows a guy.
What sort of odds can I get that next Fri. at Target Field we'll have a 13-game losing streak (Seattle) vs. a 16-game losing streak (Twins)?
All six Orioles runs off Dickey came with two outs. One big pitch changes everything about this game.
Some strong opinions both ways on LeBron/Paul George love fest. Lot of lovers be hate'n.
I can't believe I'm this excited for a Liberace movie.
Oh and ran into an ever-expanding Anthony Mason in Atlanta airport.
Keep hearing the name Neven Subotić as Kevin Sugartits. Football knowledge isn't what it was.
Getting the sense Heat might be without Wade for his elbow to Stephenson in Game 2. Still awaiting word one way or the other from league.
Cimberio Varese leads 36-35 vs Siena at the end of 1st half. Serie A Semifinals Game 1
More of a fair question to raise if he gets no penalty at all. Id assume something gets handed down; at least a fine. Looked bad.
No, I don't necessarily assume he'll be suspended, either. But we all know the league takes at least a day or two to rule on stuff like this
Folks saying Wades elbow was outta line, & that hes getting star treatment bc no penalty's been handed down. Let's give it more than 14 hrs
Every spring he is http://t.co/Ph8H4lfm7C
Watching Fast 6 for the third time.
This is Bayern's day today lads...I'm falling in line with popular scoreline prediction of 3-1
Have been told Raptors have only gone hard after Ujiri and Phil
With a lucrative offer to leave Denver and run the Raptors, league source says decision is now in Masai Ujiri's hands.
One of media brethren made fun of me when I said Paul George would clown this year. Made fun of my MOP vote. Kid isn't coming; he's here
Great play by Melky in left to end inning. Dickey is having a devil of a start.
Anybody have video or a gif of the Wade elbow? I totally missed it last night & am in transit.
Sorry, if he declines, it will be on to Plan B
Ujiri is the only candidate the Raptors are going hard after. If he declines, it
If anybody in the stands can get a sweater up into the press box, I'd appreciate it. Thanks, ek.
I do find it amusing that rarely do people say Kareem, when he has 6 titles, 5 MVP awards and more points than anyone ever. DB
If you're looking to build a fastbreak-style team, a guy like Magic would be your first choice. A defensive anchor? Probably Russell. DB
I guess it depends on what kind of team you were trying to build, honestly. DB
Correct me if off, but this year was it for Benson options. Had been playing bad. Ryan can justify. Still would've gone Butera route first.
Dwyane Wade and David West both threw elbows last night. Wade's was to the head. There should be, and usually is, zero tolerance for that.
Good luck to Gus Johnson 2day. So much respect for an established guy willing to step outside his comfort zone to do this, on this stage..
Also, Ujiri did not have a ton of autonomy beyond roster construction in DEN. COULD have more here.
One thing is clear: TOR is going to offer Ujiri far more money than DEN.
Pacers media clearly believes Wade’s elbow was intentional. Not sure about that, but definitely should have been a foul on Wade.
Previous tweet wasn't the best screenshot. One second...
Because people are asking … I would be surprised if Masai Ujiri was not announced as Raptors GM by early next week. Nothing done, though.
SASvsMEM in Spanish on ESPN LatAm at 7:00 PM CentAm, 8:00 PM Mex/Quito/Lima/Bogota, 8:30 PM Caracas, 9:00 PM Santiago/SDomingo, 22:00 BsAs.
It'll be interesting to see if NBA does anything to Dwyane Wade for his cheap shot elbow to Lance, especially after Battier's knee on Roy
SASvsMEM por ESPN LatAm a las 7:00 PM CentAm, 8:00 PM Mex/Quito/Lima/Bogota, 8:30 PM Caracas, 9:00 PM Santiago/SDomingo, 22:00 BsAs/Mntvdeo.
What's going on here? Is this a new fashion I don't know about??? http://t.co/QHWg4rnaPZ
Women's International. Great Britain 56-54 Israel with 7:46 left in 4th. Israelis on 6-0 run.
Cabrera, Bautista hitting the poop out of the ball in May. Both single to start the first.
Pacers had a 123.1 Offensive Rating last night. Highest against Miami since ... the Pacers on Feb. 1.
That workout in Minny is expected to include the usual measurements and drills, plus 3-on-3 scrimmaging. Unlike Nets workout, no 5-on-5.
I'm told the participants for the Timberwolves-hosted, 22-player draft combine on Tuesday and Wednesday should be released on Monday.
Champions League Final 2day. One of the great days in sports. And when that theme song starts up, the hairs on the back of the neck stand up
Today, Dickey is looking Ned Starkish. 3-0 Orioles.
That 2000 comeback over Portland jumpstarted Phil's success in LA. Tex was stunned by it, by their first Lakers title. Hadn't seen it coming
Watching the replay of George's dunk. Reggie missed a chance at a nice call when he said Click, Click but failed to follow up with Boom.
Curious is BShaw's great role in the 2000 comeback against Portland. Amazing Dr. Buss didn't try to divine some of that luck by hiring him
New York Diamond League being held at a track that looks a bit like Meadowbank with better grass. Weather Edinburgh-esque too.
YES R.A. DICKEY GAME OF THRONES INTRO YES
Hello, Memphis. Now get me some BBQ, stat.
Stat to watch: in G2, Grizzlies shot 39% in paint and converted just 2 of 16 second chance rebound opportunities. Must convert those to win!
George Mumford: the mistake people make with the triangle is to look at it as Xs+Os. It's an organizing principle that builds team success
Women's friendly. Great Britain 33-28 Israel HT
So, probably Wall-George-Monroe in some order. Clippers will regret passing (for Aminu) for years.
Where's the Melo "heart of a lion" commentary on Twitter? Dude never cries wolf.
