Ryan Kelly told me he was going through practice w/simple running/jumping and felt the hamstring pull. Bad timing, he came in great shape.

Eric Pincus

Clarkson just pulled Kobe aside - asking for what looked like defensive advice in post - Kobe spent a few minutes showing the rookie

Ha! RT .@OmarVillafranca: @Jeff Caplan You left out "The Cowboys are 3-1"

Marc Berman

Fisher after practice: Being here at West Point is bigger than basketball. Bigger than what we’re trying to do from a team perspective.''

Chris Sheridan

Believe it or not, as bad as #Celtics could be this season, they may also be a tax team #NBA sheridanhoops.com/2014/06/30/bos…

David Lee is a fan of the new slate-colored jerseys, just not the sleeves.

Mark Medina

Lakers get 80 layups on the second time. So the work is done

Gary Lee

BREAKING: KOBE JUST DUNKED IN A LAYUP DRILL.

Marc Berman

Cool how Derek Fisher talks like he was here last season. "We lost 15 games by 5 points or less. We couldn't get stops at end of games.''

Bill Oram

Kobe and Nash going to the end, but each sat out about 30 minutes in middle of three hour practice.

Ray Richardson

New #Twolves shooting coach Mike Penberty said players respond differently: "With Ricky, if he is looking in your eyes, you are with him."

Bill Oram

Lakers are on the brink of going a full hour beyond scheduled practice time. Scheduled to hit court again at 5 pm.

Diamond Leung

Nemanja Nedovic among those who have stood out to Steve Kerr.

Gary Lee

Lay-up drills with Byron Scott - we're now on the second round. instagram.com/p/tn7zAnhRnS/

Al Iannazzone

Melo on the Knicks now: "The energy is different. The culture is a lot different now. The vibes around here is different."

Mark Medina

Kobe's dunk was a right hander. Nothing fancy, but obviously a good sign

Tony Jones

For Gordon Hayward to be better this season, he needs to follow two words...or so says Quin Snyder - sltrib.com/sltrib/blogsja…

Diamond Leung

Festus Ezeli held out of last night's scrimmage.

Bill Oram

Kobe just dunked in that layup drill.

Mark Murphy

Faverani had MRI taken of left knee after some swelling. Considered a normal post-surgical reaction.

Mark Medina

Kobe just dunked during the layup drill

Darren Wolfson

No Pohlad or St. Peter in the chat today with Molitor. It was Ryan and Antony. Happened this morning at ballpark. #mntwins

Aaron Falk

Trey Burke ready to build on a solid rookie year. Here's @Tony Jones on the PG's next step. sltrib.com/sltrib/jazz/58… http://t.co/DtOxlJ94cP

Ray Richardson

New #Twolves shooting coach Mike Penberthy on point guard Ricky Rubio's work ethic to become a better shooter: "Incredible."

Vincent Ellis

So news that Jerebko looks like he will be in the rotation should make @JoannePistonFan happy.

Eric Pincus

Byron Scott - "It's a sprint - not a jog"

Mark Medina

Lakers finish w/ 78, so B. Scott says, "Gotta do it again."

Vincent Ellis

From SVG today: "We’ll play at least nine on a nightly basis, probably 10 a lot based on the way Jonas has played in Sept. and in camp ..."

Eric Pincus

Byron Scott - "Do it again"

Bill Oram

Kobe in full court layup drill. moby.to/qwkk02

Jay King

Vitor had knee MRI. Stevens: "He doesn’t feel like it’s an insurmountable amount of pain, he just has a lot more swelling than he had hoped"

Mark Murphy

Gerald Wallace said surgically-repaired knee responding well to his 14th training camp. "(But) I feel every one of them."

Tony Jones

Trey Burke was a standout rookie last season...and the Jazz need him to be better, much better.....can he produce? - sltrib.com/sltrib/jazz/58…

Eric Pincus

Full court run into layup drill

Royce Young

One of two #EOBPod episodes has gone up! We’re talking best backcourt, the Knicks firing you, the Nuggets and more: cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-bas…

Mark Medina

B. Scott has drill where team has to make 80 layups in 2 min. Assistants hand off ball at elbows on both ends of court, while players sprint

James Ham

Derrick Williams and Jason Thompson are having a 3-point shootout after practice. Neither have missed many. Huge improvement by both.

Ian Begley

Fisher: "Our penetration won't come off of pick and roll as it does 98 percent of the league but it will come off of interior passes."

Mike Trudell

Coach Byron Scott in the huddle after an intense practice: "Keep pushing each other."

Jerry Zgoda

Just FYI: Wolves will finish Mankato camp Sunday with a scrimmage, but it will be closed and not open to the public

Mike Bresnahan

Kobe last-second shot from the left elbow a little long with Ronnie Price on him. Scrimmage over.

Tim Kawakami

Oops, Alex Smith's total 49ers OC count is actually 7. I accidentally counted Jimmy Raye twice.

Mark Medina

Can't hear what they're saying, but Nick Young keeps bantering to Kobe, who isn't paying much attention to him

Mark Followill

We appreciate the shoutout from @Matt Moore. The Mavs are gonna be a lot of fun to watch this yr. We're pumped! ow.ly/Ca7dr

Bill Reiter

Bruno Heller's new show, Gotham, might end up being fantastic. Really good so far.

Sean Deveney

For improving Derrick Favors, leadership is next in Utah dlvr.it/74Tj0K

Jay King

Jared Sullinger on Jeff Green: "Defensively, these past couple of days, he’s just been stepping it up.”

Bill Oram

Nice sequence in Lakers scrimmage: Kobe underhands to cutting Nash, who finds Jeremy Tyler at the rim. Tyler fouled. Kobe thrilled.

Eric Pincus

Kobe just got caught on a screen - I think Price - giving Young an open 3 but Swaggy was off line

Mike Trudell

Team Nash/Kobe holding a 18-9 lead; Bryant's controlling his matchup with Young and letting Swaggy know about it.

Gary Lee

What will be the Lakers’ starting lineup on opening night against the Rockets? Well, we potentially got a sneak peak. lakersnation.com/lakers-news-po…

Joe Freeman

Just noticed this at #Blazers practice: Wesley Matthews is not here as the team scrimmages.

Mike Bresnahan

Kobe nice up-and-under move, found Nash cutting baseline, who passed it to a cutting Jeremy Tyler, who was fouled.

Tim Kawakami

I'm not making any conclusions by citing that OC count. Just startling to see how two 49ers QBs could have such different environments.

Jeff Caplan

It's 96° on Oct. 1, Ebola's in Dallas & in Ft Worth the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base is on lockdown for unknown reasons. #WTF
