What the Nets are doing is disrespectful (to Raps/Cavs/fans/NBA) but they're well within their right to do it. Still, could easily backfire
Bucks can survive in Milwaukee if they regain the trust of fans with smart decision-making.
The Bucks are sold for $550M. Sweeping front office changes sure to follow.
Maciulis hits again! He's the Green hero!!!
Reports out of Milwaukee indicate Kohl planning to use sale proceeds & re-invest in new arena. Once gave $25M for arena at Univ of Wisconsin
Some prominent individuals with WI or Bucks ties were set to join a Chicago group as minority owners.
Asked if he might go back to Oden as a playoff starter, Spoelstra hedged, "I don't know. A lot of that will be dictated on who we play."
More than 29 years later, Sen. Kohl is selling the Bucks for $550 million according to Marc Stein.
My money's on Brandon Bass for the Red Auerbach Award tonight. Who ya got?
More Spoelstra on Cole, "He's shown up in big moments. And he's shown up when he hasn't played or he's gone through some tough things."
Spoelstra on Cole's struggles, low FG Pct., "I'm not concerned. That a lot times can be a byproduct of how that five-man unit is playing,"
And yes, there is a chance they'll do it again and put Smith back out there at some point in 2014, but that is not the outcome I'd predict.
Yasiel Puig has the same facial expression in every picture on his Instagram page.
I regret nothing. Take care.
On the thought that 49ers should just give Smith another chance: They've done that, and done that, and done that, and done that...
More coach Bartzokas: "Real deserves our respect, but there is also that part of its game. For example Reyes fell down at least 30 times"
Part of that Bucks sale price will likely be redirected into funding new arena. Told arena will be between $420-500M.
So I guess Seattle has to hope expansion becomes an option after the next TV deal?
The Raps should probably rest everybody they think that could use the rest tonight, given everyone else seems to be.
Espn reporting Bucks sale to Edens and Lasry for $550M.
Good thing UCLA sent out a release saying Kyle Anderson to the NBA Draft. That certainly wasn't reported three weeks ago.
With 1st round homecourt advantage clinched, Rockets holding out James Harden, Chandler Parsons and Jeremy Lin tonight, maybe more.
No Nash or Kaman tonight, per D'Antoni.
If you manage a Facebook page, sounds like there's a bug right now with images on link shares. (Evidently, they're looking into it.)
UCLA's Kyle Anderson headed to the draft. Shined as a full time playmaker last season. Can he do it in the NBA? Defense a real issue.
Two players cut by Knicks in training camp, Chris Douglas-Roberts & Josh Powell, will be in playoffs with Charlotte & Houston respectively.
Those prices would've been ludicrous two years ago. The Kings sale last year set the new benchmark.
Whenever people are trying to game the system, blame the system, not the gamers.
Bucks will hold "major" press conference this afternoon. Gee, can't imagine what that would be about.
The Milwaukee Bucks selling for $550 million this year while the Kings sold for $535 million last year.
Bucks say a major announcement will be made at 2:30 today at BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Can't wait for the 2017 lockout!
Will be interesting to see what Bucks sale would mean for front office and coaching staff.
Kohl made keeping team in Milwaukee a condition of the sale to the hedge-fund billionaires, whose purchase now subject to league approval
Herb Kohl bought Bucks in 1985 for $18 million, will sell today for $550 million. When owners talk about losing money, remember this.
ESPN has learned Bucks owner Herb Kohl will announce sale of the team later today to Wesley Edens & Marc Lasry for price of $550 milllion
You make our community better, you deserve some credit.
I know it angers hockey fanatics, but I can go without watching a single regular season game and love every second of an Avs' playoff run.
H/T to Jazz, AAA, AT&T, CenturyLink, Utah Ford Dealerships, KeyBank, Mountain America CU, Washakie Renewable Energy and Western Governors U.
Also thought it was pretty neat that the Utah Jazz and eight partners will have contributed almost $200,000 to charities by season's end.
Pistons also said to have interest in talking to Hill, who obviously began career there, with more names sure to emerge as search unfolds
Pelicans general manager says Eric Gordon undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery today.
Wonder how good of a player I would've been had I done Jr Jazz instead of playing church ball (well, and not been short, fat and unathletic)
Wizards & Raptors have little playoff experience. They also have younger legs. I wonder if that's being underestimated.
Casey (I'm paraphrasing) spoke in general -- about no 1 team specifically -- saying 'careful what ya wish for' re: teams losing/jockeying
If you think teams aren't thinking that way.. Wade & Spoelstra have admitted they regretted Diawara'a shot that put Mia against Bos in '10
This will be only the 3rd DNP for Joe Johnson this season. Leads the team in games played.
In the spirit of the NHL Playoffs I replied: "Yes, but make to pull his shirt over his head first."
Others who could be in the mix: Warriors asst. GM Travis Schlenk (former Kings GM candidate) and Bryan Colangelo (former Raps GM)
Got the following text about a treadmill hogger from my wife who is at the gym: "Ding-dong's walking on the treadmill. Can I punch him?"
We have a few opportunities for you to win tickets to tonight's Grizzlies game on today's show
Perry (asst. GM, Orlando) worked with Dumars in Detroit (said to have wanted Melo over Darko) and Thunder GM Sam Presti in Seattle.
Raptors win OR Bulls loss keeps Bulls out of Heat bracket. Nets win OR Wizards loss keeps Nets out of Heat bracket.
Andrew Bogut to be reevaluated after week of being house ridden. "I'm not going to put basketball ahead of my life as much as I'd like to."
Rockets make it official, announcing signing of Josh Powell in time to start shootaround with team in New Orleans.
If Bulls win, Raptors lose, Wizards win & Nets lose, Bulls/Nets is in Heat's bracket.
Good morning Lakers Nation!
Andrew Bogut told KNBR a Clippers series is "going to be a bloodbath probably" with "probably some casualties."
I also think players do care less about winning now than in past. Used to be about being best player, now about getting into NBA lifestyle.
Perry is the Magic exec w/deep Detroit ties who worked in Pistons' front office alongside Joe D and Sam Presti in Seattle before Orlando
Andrew Bogut told KNBR Mark Jackson has done a "great job" and that the 50-win celebration showed "we have his back as much as he has ours."
To celebrate his 62nd birthday, Bill Belichick plans to spend 18 hours preparing for the draft today instead of his usual 16.
Deng, CJ Miles remain out tonight against Brooklyn. Anthony Bennett, Carrick Felix might try to play
Bulls have won 8 of 9....Bobcats 7 of 8. Bulls Radio 530CT pre on Bulls Radio Network- ESPN 1000
All right, I'm out. Gotta put in my false teeth, grab my cane and head to some whale-watching. I'll try to come back with better attitude!
Kevin Durant on the Thunder's playoff opponent: "We're not scared of anybody, no matter who we play. We don't fear anybody."
Andrew Bogut hurting enough where on his KNBR show yesterday Tom Tolbert promised no jokes so Bogut wouldn't laugh.
Pistons vowing broad search for Joe Dumars' successor, but two names already in circulation to be on their list: Scott Perry and Grant Hill
Cavs can avoid finishing below .400 for 4th-straight season tonight with W. Their last 4-year run below .400 was 99-00 thru 02-03
Trey Dickerson signs with Iowa today. Keep an eye on him next year, one of my top guards to watch. He'll likely make an impact right away
Matchup of streaks tonight, Mavs have won 6 straight on road (franchise record is 8). Grizzlies have won 13 in a row at home
One of general themes of Dell Demps press conference: Pelicans didn't see core group together long enough to make broad/accurate analysis
Tonight's Mavs at Grizz finale is at 7p & as I am sure most of you know, 7th seed & a 50 win season at stake for the winner
Just a reminder that tonight's Mavs game in Memphis & all 1st round playoff games (unless on ABC) will be broadcast by us on TXA21
Take Thibs' words with a grain of salt: Best outcome for Bulls is a loss, combined with Nets loss and Wizards win. Sets up 4/5 with Wiz.
Also, the NFL and 49ers cannot both suspend/penalize a player for the same violation.
Bucks Exec. VP Ron Walter will be attending Thurs-Friday Board of Governors meeting in NY.
Thibs on mindset heading into tonight's game: "We're not changing. So we got our normal rotation we're going to play. We're playing to win."
Jimmy Butler on Bulls' mindset heading into the playoffs: "It really don't matter who we play, we think we can beat anybody."
Without a pending suspension, 49ers would face a release/don't release decision soon after April 29 hearing. But they will wait for NFL, too
The NBA Playoffs begin in 3 days.
On the 49ers/Aldon Smith timeline, repeated: They are fully expecting an NFL suspension, which will give them a period to assess everything.
Today is the first day you can pick up a copy of the new Los Angeles Register, available at retail outlets through LA County.
Today’s sign that newspapers aren’t what they used to be: In San Antonio they actually slide the paper UNDER the door of your hotel room
Nothing I care less about than a highlight of guy "breaking someone's ankles" in a game his team lost. Who cares?
I have been overwhelmed with glamping tweets this morning. Not sure I get it, but I am probably not the target audience anyway.
D.J. Augustin is back after birth of son."We can work on his floater," Augustin said.
Thibodeau: "We’re playing to win. When you look at where our guys minutes-wise, total minutes-wise, health-wise, that’s what we should do."
The NBA regular season ends tonight. This is a good thing. Will not go down as league's finest. Too many agendas that weren't about winning.
Denver Post didn't bother to send a reporter to LA last night. Not sure if this more of a commentary on Nuggets or the state of newspapers.
To sum it all up: Tonight is a good reminder that we are all powerless in this world, so just watch basketball and have fun.
The cop called Winston, and he said he had to go to baseball practice.
Sam Cassell, behind Tony Allen & Big Baby Davis, enjoying his last championship ring http://t.co/bkAayqIVPa
Why the C's? Brad Stevens is definitely back next season. D'Antoni and probably Corbin are toast. Easier to convince a company man to tank.
Most important question today: which of the Jazz, Celtics and Lakers will trot out the most insulting lineup? Money's on Boston.
Of course, if Charlotte beats Bulls, Raps game will become totally meaningless around 9:30.
Perhaps only way to manipulate things tonight is to play super slow pace, ensure many fouls, so that yours is the game that finishes last.
We drop the curtain on the regular season tonight in Milwaukee. Tune in! http://t.co/MY10IU0yIW
Worst-case scenario for raps: Raps lose, Bulls lose, Nets lose, Washington wins.
Best-case scenario for Raps: Chicago wins, Raptors lose, Nets lose, Washington wins.
If Michael Carter Williams is everyone's rookie of the year then I am confused why it isn't Trey Burke?
Well, I should restate: Raps control if they lineup with Heat/Pacers — a win guarantees Heat. So they, don't control optimal result.
Omer Yurtseven, 1998-born Turkish 6-9 PF from Fenerbahce also had a nice practice. Mobile, good feel, solid frame, can score inside and out.
The Raptors don't control if they line up w/ Heat/Pacers, don't control if they play Nets/Wiz/Bobcats. So it goes.
He reacted, but Spanoulis yelled from the bench to clarify things and that's the end of the story (2/2)
FIBA opens bid process to host 2019 World Cup of Basketball. 1st year it will be on new calendar cycle and qualify 7 teams for '20 Olympics.
After talking with family, friends and Mike Krzyzewski, Jabari Parker is expected to make his draft decision today.
LeBron James and Chris Bosh both again being given the night off for the Heat. Greg Oden could make it back from his stomach virus.
Sixers have only 1 series win this season. (They went 3-1 vs Boston.) With win tonight over Bosh-, LeBron-less Miami, they'd be 2-1 vs Heat.
Prediction: Raps finish third, face Nets, on Heat's side of bracket. I base this on years of observation.
Not at all surprised that LeBron and Bosh are sitting out tonight against Sixers.
LeBron and Bosh both out tonight and, like everyone else in South Florida, will be paying more attn to other games than the one at AAA.
Greg Oden is back tonight for final game of reg. season and first time since that telling first quarter against Indiana on March 26.
Wow, with everyone cutting left and right, Globe suddenly acting like Pacman Jones in the strip club. Making it rain. Strange times
Sure feels a lot different than last few years. Kings season ends tonight & gone is the wonder of where this franchise will call home
Toronto/Canadian media right now, basically: my fever dream of a 30-team NBA trade.
It was a lot easier to be a fan of a bad basketball team before NBA League Pass.
Shaquille O'Neal last night on Mason Plumlee: "He's ‘Plumdog Millionaire’ and he will be a star. He’s Joakim Noah-ish.”
British Basketball confirm they will not launch a formal appeal against their funding loss.
Annual shoutout to all the beat writers who cover lousy teams. You watched bad basketball for our amusement and we salute you.
Results for MRI on Carlos Arroyo's tweaked ankle have returned negative. Minor sprain, out Game 2 vs Barcelona. Hopeful for Game 3.
