Clippers announce broadcast schedule. All games televised on Prime Ticket will air on Fox Sports San Diego
It’s hard to imagine any team beating the Spurs this season, but I think it’s mostly because I still have the Finals still etched in my mind
Pretty excited that Pops Mensah-Bonsu is back in the NBA, if only for training camp.
Noah on weather, relating to Gasol's choice: "It's brutal. So when you're used to the beach every day, to pick the polar vortex says a lot.
Now I have this image in my head of Derek Fisher being a GI Joe. Thanks for that, NY Post.
Noah didn't think Gasol was coming to Chicago because of the cold. Lakers were here last year during polar vortex.
'When did Melo and Jeter become BFFs?...He makes it sound like they're Butch & Sundance.' Mike Lupica
More Knight: "It's going how it should go. No disappointments. For me it's just making sure we continue this through the entire process."
Kudos to Mark Price for telling MKG not to extend his elbow over his face when he shoots.
Bucks players impressed with first 2 days of practice under Kidd. "Everybody is working hard, communicating," Brandon Knight said.
"He’s pretty complete. I think he’s definitely one of our secret weapons.’’ Noah on Mirotic.
"You don’t think of a stretch-fours as guys that can block shots, run the floor, and he can … he’s a hell of a player.’’ Noah on Mirotic.
Noah is putting Mirotic into the HOF after 2 days. "He’s a great shooter, and he’s done a lot of things that are pretty surprising.'' Noah.
I understand Corbin couldn't return, given the circumstances. I also understand blasting him after the fact is silly.
Had no clue Channing Frye and Tobias Harris were first cousins.
Broncos fans- come to our cool event tonight. Talking football and all sports at 6:30 pm at Denver Press Club, 1330 Glenarm. There's a bar!
SVG said he'll play 9 or 10 guys in the rotation during the preseason/regular season. Seems like Jerebko makes the diff btw 9-10
"Unfortunately, people outside took it as a shot. But it wasn't a shot. We practiced when we could. We were an older group ... "
"We couldn't," Kidd said. "We were hurt. That's just part of the game. What Joe said wasn't a shock."
Tyreke Evans (hamstring) hasn't practiced with team. But he is putting in work with assistant Fred Vinson more than 30 minutes after prax.
Kidd did not dispute Nets guard Joe Johnson's assertion that the team practiced ... but not really ... last season.
I'm watching Pels swingman Tyreke Evans work on his refined shooting stroke & he's made at least 7 of 10 3s from each spot. Not bad.
While media was allowed in, for the final 15mins or so, it was Copeland on the wing w/ the first unit. Solo yesterday. Everything is fluid.
Miles has had the calf strain since before camp. So he can practice, only rests near end when there's more contact. Yesterday he went 2 hrs+
Today's special guest at Wolves practice: Richard Pitino
Bucks forward Khris Middleton missed practice today to have a cyst removed and will be out for a few days, coach Jason Kidd said.
So I'm watching to see if Dennis Schröder has grown enough over year one to wrestle those duties away from Shelvin Mack
Dennis Schröder basically had primary reserve PG spot gift wrapped for him heading into camp last yr, but Shelvin Mack was having none of it
C.J. Miles (right calf strain) says he's been going for the majority of practices so far, and it's been Stuckey & him w/ the first unit.
Per Rick Carlisle, Ivan Johnson missed practice with an illness today.
If some young Jazz players turned on Corbin, that tells us as much about them as it does about the ex-coach, right?
First week of Jazz preseason has become open season on ex-coach Tyrone Corbin in media. Ridiculous. John Wooden couldn't have won here.
Off topic: The Ickey Woods Geico commerical makes me laugh EVERY time.
Players and coaches singing praises of Mirotic early: Noah: "He's really good. He adds a different dimension to the game."
Follow me on @Instagram...same handle as here on Twitter -- eric__smith
That starting group with Bogdanovic looked very good offensively. He'll get a lot of wide open looks in the corner for three.
Noah on Gasol: "When you're used to the beach and you pick the polar vortex, that says a lot."
CJ Miles attempting a shot after practice. He participated in early part but held out later to rest calf strain. http://t.co/2JMS58rHTk
Deron Williams is impressive in 5 on 5 scrimmage. Bogdanovic is with the starters.
Noah said he felt better today than yesterday, which he said is good sign.
National pub for the Bucks and Jabari Parker. Talking with Chris Broussard of ESPN. http://t.co/nHLHduiInv
For the part of practice we've been let in to see, Bogdanovic is working as the fifth starter.
Will Bynum will be limited in the next few days. Right hammy strain
Taj also said he really wants to win 6th man award.
Will Bynum (right hamstring) will be limited the next few days in practice.
If Taj Gibson is upset about not starting, he's doing a damn good job of hiding it.
Taj says he's getting better in post by going against Gasol's length in practice.
I’d probably set the Wizards over/under at 46 or 47 if it were up to me.
McRoberts said he plans to be ready by the season-opener.
Raptors 50/1 to win NBA title, per Bodog. 25/1 to win the East. Knicks same odds, but I don’t think they are in Toronto’s class.
Mirotic makes me nostalgic for Andres Nocioni. Both guys tend to end every statement with..."and that's it."
Roy Williams at Hornets practice with Marvin Williams and P.J. Hairston. http://t.co/TN9ZgNkL7X
Raptors, according to Bodog, have the 6th-best odds of winning the East at 25/1, same as the Knicks/Hornets, behind CLE, CHI, WAS, MIA, IND
Josh McRoberts (toe) will not play in tonight's scrimmage. The Heat is being overly cautious.
Frank Vogel confers with the braintrust following Wednesday practice. http://t.co/eMRu6n37CO

Latest betting odds from Bovada: Nets 66/1 to win a championship, Knicks 50/1, Cavs 5/2
Josh McRoberts (toe) will not play in tonight's scrimmage.
No Andrei Kirilenko (back) or Sergey Karasev (sore right foot) in practice today for the Nets.
During the segment, SportsCenter also will air portions of Kevin Durant's sit-down interview with Marc Stein from media day.
In latest Bovada odds, Cavs are title favorites at 5/2, Spurs are next at 4/1, Bulls after that at 11/2. Knicks are 50/1, Nets 66/1.
Bulls scrimmaged again today. No issues for Noah. Thibodeau with high praise for Mirotic.
Bovada's latest odds to win East: Cavs 4/5, Bulls 9/4, Wizards 14/1, Heat 16/1, Pacers 19/1.
Correction: I'm now told Sage Steele will be in OKC TOMORROW, and she will interview only Brooks. Will air on SportsCenter tomorrow.
Thunder (6/1) remain fourth on Bovada's NBA title odds. Behind Cavs (5/2), Spurs (4/1) and Bulls (11/2).
Vance Bedford says he plans to rush two and drop nine into coverage vs. Baylor. I've heard more believable time-share presentations.
One key about KJ: years 3 and 4, unguaranteed. Different than in 1st round picks, where option has to be picked up well in advance.
Luol Deng on LeBron: "Everybody's going to talk about him being gone & me being here... But I'm not trying to be LeBron James."
And to Raiders fans mad at me for writing about Gruden: Your owner wants to hire him. I'm supposed to edit Mark Davis now?
Luol Deng on being looked at as LeBron's replacement: "No. I'm not trying to be anybody's replacement."
If you have a young QB like Derek Carr, the tendency is to try to maximize his value by hiring a proven offensive mind. Just generally.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, Utah Jazz fans, but McDonald's is not doing its amazing game-day McNuggets promotion this season.
Will be interesting to see how Noah plays early on. He's wearing big bulky knee brace on left knee.
It's one thing to eject due. Another thing to have him arrested. But to go extra mile of finding out where he works & calling? *Applause*
Klay Thompson told Warriors TV: "It's why I don't want to leave the Bay. It's too good. It's too nice out here."
Spurs open intrasquad scrimmage is today at 6. It's free to watch Pop's magnificent beard in person.
If Gruden passes, I still think Mark Davis is going to continue to target big names. Jim Harbaugh would have to be on a potential list.
I was wrong about presumptive favorite. Atreides is undefeated, but not as impressive wins as Vicar's In Trouble, winner of Super Derby.
Fox Sports Florida has announced it will televise the Magic's preseason home opener on Oct. 15 against Flamengo (Brazil).
Ask TB12 if coaches will be evaluated.
Vicar's In Trouble, presumptive favorte in Saturday's Indiana Derby, draws post No. 4 in nine-horse field.
K. Gleason of TH-Record asked J.R. about staying at famed Thayer Hotel: "It was a normal hotel. It's not like the Ritz Carlton or anything.'
ESPN's Chris Broussard is at training camp in St. Francis today and is scheduled to interview Jabari Parker.
The A’s lost for two reasons: 1. Pitchers not making simple moves to try to hold base runners. 2. Bad overall defense.
ESPN anchor Sage Steele is in OKC today to report from Thunder camp. Interviews w/ Durant, Westbrook & Brooks will air on SportsCenter.
Documentary (and tutorial) that should be happening right now: Steve Nash teaches Jeremy Lin how to play point guard.
Do you really think A's, relying on Sogard, Punto, Fuld, Norris, Vogt, Lowrie, etc., is "best team?" C'mon, they played well early.
The one year deal signed by rookie K.J. McDaniels makes him restricted free agent after this season. He could be starting 2 guard this year

The Sharette Dixon Classic is set for 10/11 @ the Gauchos Gym.Expected: Rawle Alkins, Chris Silva, Desure Buie, Trevon Duval. Rosters coming
My parents were English teachers. "Collapse" way too strong. "Collapse" would have been if A's failed to get into postseason.
Do you have liquid sugar you could just inject into my veins? No? Just the five cookies for me, then.
For lunch at Eagles practice, one sportswriter grabbed five cookies. Five. He’s taking it easy today, I guess.
When I asked how much he's worked on his three-point shooting, Devin Harris was brief but clear. "A ton. A ton."
I was born Sept. 26, 1964, near Philly -- amid Phillies' 10-game losing streak to miss postseason. I know collapses and this wasn't one.
Devin Harris worked on his spot-up shooting in anticipation of playing more off the ball. "I just want to be comfortable enough to do so."
A collapse is when a team with superior talent or in total control completely loses it. A's were nice team & made postseason.
You can't call what A's did a "collapse." They were WC team. Now, Dallas Mavericks in '07 vs. Warriors? That was a collapse.
Once again, I’ll say that I rarely have had problems with NBA League Pass. Stop trying to stream games using dial-up.
The first Heat-Cavs matchup is actually tonight. Both teams are live streaming their scrimmages at 7 p.m.
FYI: Cavs will stream their intrasquad scrimmage at 7 p.m. ET tonight.
You can rule out Kevin Garnett from joining the coaching ranks after retirement: "Absolutely not. Hell no."

A question for the Iowa chapter of Wolves Nation: How long does it take to drive from the Twin Cities to Cedar Rapids? 3 1/2 hours?
NBA League Pass will be available on several platforms in 2014-15, including Xbox One for first time. Video on demand will be available, too
Philbin said Dolphins like LaMichael Jamesl speed and playmaking and want to see what they have in him. He is on practice squad
