We are seeing a clean separation here: Fans who worship OWNERS, and everybody else who just wants to see games & few injuries.
If sixth men were music videos ... Jamal Crawford : Markieff Morris :: "Anaconda" : "Shake It Off"
"Is the Leaning Tower of Piza just a statue?"
Confirmed: Aaron McKie to be announced as an assistant Temple basketball coach.
A third source confirms Anthony Bennett is staying in Minnesota, not heading to Philly.
Rasheed/Damon getting popped for weed driving home after a game has nothing on Steelers Blount/Bell, who were busted hour before team flight
Check that. Chaney just walked out here in a t-shirt and shorts, so he's a no-go. Sterling is in full pads and warming up
It appears all the main characters are a go this afternoon for Monmouth. Neal Sterling and Lavon Chaney both sat Saturday w/minor issues
Jayson Tatum also told me he may cut his list soon...Will have videos and interviews the next few days on ZAGS:
The Simpsons hit its stride when the writers realized that Homer should be the main character instead of Bart.
“I don’t feel like walking around with a jersey that says [R-words] on it because it’s a racist name,” said....8-year-old Gabriel Franklin.
Brandon Ingram told me he will visit Kentucky and Kansas for Late Nights.
lol ok http://t.co/Jgyqn8jF2k
Ivan Rabb told me California and Kentucky should end up making his final list.
If I was Jim Harbaugh, I might be wondering: If there was an issue like this in a luxury suite, would it have taken this long to address?
Death in the crowd, sun-burnt fans, 34-0 loss and now a jacked up field ... Rough week for 49ers
Random: Stephen Curry is older than Kevin Durant.
He then says he's close to having that eight guys decided.
Krzyzewski says that he has to "compliment eight guys with four guys." Says "once we know those right" other four become easier to decide.
The best play of the 2007 playoffs was the Derek Fisher three anyway.
Krzyzewski singles out DeMar DeRozan as someone who has played well "whenever there's been live action" including scrimmages, games.
What I don’t get, is what Minny has to offer for Thad with Bennett not moving. Philly held on to him last year looking for more value ...
Coach K says "everyone is able to play" tomorrow night.
Will take a while, but Wolves building an intriguing, exciting, athletic team Should probably move Pek and try to get in Jahlil Okafor derby
Wolves beat guys have been all over this, but FWIW, have heard from 2 sources Anthony Bennett staying in Minny, Thad Young still going there
To me that series was the epitome of the ESPN generation. Who won? Who cares! Who had the best highlight play?
It cracks me up that the only thing people remember about that series, which the Jazz won, is one dunk.
In Boston on vacation, had to spend a little time with Red. http://t.co/Vqid7ASpV0
PS -- Would love to tell you my photography skills have improved since London 2012 ... but that would be a misrepresentation of the facts
Shot of Derrick Rose working on his around-the-rim finishing from the observation deck at Team USA practice http://t.co/Xr4OI0rm0o
Derrick Rose is on the court practicing today http://t.co/Dh6S0BhfCl
Strong says Templin and Haines will play next week. Can't remember Mack using an unrecruited, non-military walk-on in 16 years.
Gruden said "it's hard to say" if Bowen would return for the start of the season. Needs to practice.
"The blues aren't about feeling better, they're about making other people feel worse. And making a few bucks while you're at it."
Gruden has no specific ties to any number of players at a certain position. The decision on how many players are taken will be after Tampa.
Thompson will be a game-time decision, Gruden said.
If Shipley's out, UT's top WR (Marcus Johnson) has 22 career catches. John Harris, walk-on Ty Templin, Jacorey Warrick are other options.
Gruden figures first cuts will take place Sunday. Deadline is Tuesday.
Seastrunk missed practice for personal reasons.
Porter is most likely out for Saturday with a hamstring strain.
Strong says Jaxon Shipley (hamstring) still isn't getting any practice reps.
Gruden said Moses will be the backup right tackle for the next two preseason games.
Pelicans rookie guard Russ Smith should love New Orleans' preseason schedule. His first NBA game will be Oct. 4 in Louisville (vs. Heat)
Strong: "Tyrone (Swoopes) is the clear No. 2 quarterback."
Dez Harrison, who's been working at that spot, is suspended for at least the opener. Other options are Hutchins, James.
On the starting OL, Strong says Espinosa (C), Flowers and Perkins (G) and Estelle (T) have spots. Other T spot up for grabs.
Strong confirms backup OL Rami Hammad has left the program. "We wish him the best."
Strong says he isn't sure if Jaxon Shipley will be full-strength for the season opener.
Strong names 10 starters on defense, all the ones you've heard, with Hall and Haines fighting for last safety spot.
How long will I see Nando in my mentions? I'm thinking at least three more years.
The top five in Hoopshype's Spurs rankings, in order: Duncan, Robinson, Gervin, Parker, Ginobili. No complaints.
Reggie's prediction of 21-23 points may seem low, but it makes sense. I'm hoping Kobe's minutes are reduced to 30-32 in the regular season.
Irving, not Rose, with other starters in practice today: http://t.co/EApIQc0voW
Worst part of early exit is optics: after championing the “why wouldnt athletes want to be/stay in Toronto?” cause, he himself lasts < 2 yrs
In less than 14 months on the job, Leiweke helped get Raptors/Leafs/TFC on right track but leaves long before goals/promises are met
Love him or hate him (legit arguments for both), Leiweke empowered the city at a time in which its sporting landscape seemed dark & hopeless
My big takeaway from last night at MSG is that Rudy Gay is essential to Team USA. Only wing who can hold his own inside.
Fix was in. RT @JohnMartin929: My man @Geoff Calkins voted Best Local Radio Sports Talk Host in the #MemphisMost: commercialappeal.secondstreetapp.com/l/Memphis-Most…
Why do we wait to celebrate people until after they have died? We would be wise to celebrate those we love today.
Bradley says Rondo is fired up for the season. The two crossed paths in Vegas. Bradley also worked out with Evan Turner there.
Jason Garrett says second-year LB DeVonte Holloman has been told his neck condition will likely end his career.
Tim Liewicke leaves MLSE....I was totally spoiled with the leadership of Larry Tanenbaum, Richard Peddie and Tom Anselmi. Awesome people.
The stadium cost $1.3B. The team couldn't complete a practice on the new grass field. If you want to believe that's ideal, that's your call.
Rose is doing the right thing for himself & the Bulls. But I wonder if that aligns w/ what USA needs from its starting PG.
Lache Seastrunk was not at practice today. Tracy Porter, Darryl Sharpton were working on a side field. Barry Cofield was participating.
Anybody know of any good books or long-form pieces on the 1961-62 NBA season? If so, please pass along info/links…
Avery on quick deal with C's: "They were the first team that called and -- we had other calls -- but Boston, I knew I was coming back here."
That's why it might've been slightly premature to call the Levi's opening a grand success last weekend. Let's see how the first year goes.
Penn State women's hoops adds UConn transfer Brianna Banks. She'll sit out 2014-15 season. She won 2 national titles with the Huskies.
Even if his knees are fine, how many of the 9 games in 16 days would Rose play in? 6? 5? Better to give his roster spot to someone else?
That means 30 points, 11 boards, and 10 assists was a bad game for Big O… That’s dropped his averages!!! Ridiculous.
FSN will carry two preseason games - Oct. 10 home vs Philly, Oct. 22 at Bucks - as well
49ers' ribbon-cutting was July 17. They had a party on the field on the 19th and that's what caused the worn out patch. It's still there.
Oscar Roberston averaged 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds & 11.4 assists per game during the 1961-62 season – and finished 3rd in the MVP voting!!
Focus was on making Raptors a somebody in NBA for first time ever and progress was being made on that front.
Raptors surely take hit in Leiweke leaving. they were a priority. Ujiri was pursued with everything available and then left to do his job.
Salute to Wilt, Count Basie and this dude - all born on this day http://t.co/gQXhCTa66X
Knees may not be a concern, but USA needs to determine if Rose's timeline (rest, recovery) aligns w/ theirs (9 games in 16 days).
However, too early to say he got any of the three teams on right track for extended period. Reason for optimism, but that's it.
Leiweke accomplishments: got 2016 NBA ASG; got Leafs to be smarter; Raps practice facility; marquee additions to TFC.
I'm not even sure how you make an argument for anybody but Chris Farley as the greatest SNL cast member ever.
Bradley says he's 100 percent healthy and said he joked with trainers that he's in best shape on team. http://t.co/vl6b3YvBtJ
Avery Bradley down in Dartmouth for his latest skills camp. Gushes about defensive potential of C's backcourt. Thinks Boston can be top-10 D
FSN announces new season's broadcast sked: will carry 75 of 82 games - 4 others on nat'l TV - and 9 of those are FSN Plus
Anyway, I look forward to the tenure of MLSE President and CEO Aubrey Graham.
Vince Carter for MLSE CEO. He kind of had the job once (welll, his mom did).
"Someday, you may achieve something we Simpsons have dreamed about for generations...outsmarting someone."
Pastner said "technically" did not know Dom would leave when he raved about him at presser. Emphasis on "technically."
Strong personality required to deal with Rogers/Bell/Tanenbaum gong show. Leiweke def had that. Who wants the gig, huge $$$ aside?
? Is, why did Leiweke deny it for a day? To get council to approve Raptors facility?
For now, Knicks plan for Thanasis Antetokounmpo to sign straight with D-League's Westchester -- no camp deal -- sources tell RealGM.
BREAKING NEWS: Pastner says McGill "not that good."
Pastner has no issue with Dom Woodson being eligible to play at Tennessee immediately.
No Kobe cover story will ever top THE LAST ALPHA DOG
Homer was the moral center of the family in the early seasons.
Last week I blew a tire on the way to a "Love is Strange" screening and missed it. Still mad about that.
Pastner says Johnson weighs 225-230.
Of the 40 FIBA World Cup refs, four are from Spain, two each from France, Australia, Canada, Greece, Italy, Puerto Rico, Serbia, Brazil, USA
Thats consistent w/ everything I've heard from folks in Ferguson: the cops down there run their mouths worse than Twitter trolls
Flanders flaunting his wealth in the pilot is amazing.
Two U.S. referees (Anthony Jordan, Steven Anderson) will ref at FIBA World Cup in Spain. Both are college refs. Jordan used to do NBA games.
I'd really like to know the guy who bought Vin Baker's 2000 Olympic gold medal for $67K.
Another week, another wear test.
