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

Part of that Bucks sale price will likely be redirected into funding new arena. Told arena will be between $420-500M.

Sean Highkin

So I guess Seattle has to hope expansion becomes an option after the next TV deal?

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?

Keith Pompey

Will tonight's game be Thaddeus Young's last as a #Sixer? The PF doesn't know. philly.com/philly/sports/… #NBA

Eric Koreen

Well, I should restate: Raps control if they lineup with Heat/Pacers — a win guarantees Heat. So they, don't control optimal result.

Jonathan Givony

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.

Eric Koreen

The Raptors don't control if they line up w/ Heat/Pacers, don't control if they play Nets/Wiz/Bobcats. So it goes.

Emiliano Carchia

Channing Frye would like to negotiate a contract extension with Suns sportando.com/en/usa/nba/117…

Rigas Dardalis

He reacted, but Spanoulis yelled from the bench to clarify things and that's the end of the story (2/2)

Dwain Price

In theory, for the #Mavs and #Grizzlies, the playoffs start tonight. Both teams are trying to avoid playing the #Spurs in the 1st round.

No bad blood between Bourousis and @The_Pet_Way. Petway wanted to give him his hand after the foul, Bourousis didn't understand it (1/2)

Dwain Price

The #Mavs were 2-1 against the #Thunder this season, and the #Grizzlies were 1-3 vs. OKC. Mavs and Grizzlies were each 0-4 vs. the Spurs.

Ira Winderman

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.

Christopher A. Vito

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.

Anthony Slater

I had the same reaction as Shaq to this Derek Fisher dunk: vine.co/v/MJVt7hbqwBJ

Eric Koreen

Prediction: Raps finish third, face Nets, on Heat's side of bracket. I base this on years of observation.

Bob Cooney

Not at all surprised that LeBron and Bosh are sitting out tonight against Sixers.

Nice @JordanClassic practice for Maximo Fjellerup from Argentina. Good size for a wing. Solid athlete, ball-handler, passer. Can shoot a bit

Joseph Goodman

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.

Another nice day in Miami, where #Sixers will close the season against the Heat. (The team is going through a.m. shootaround at the moment.)

And, as was pointed out by @smithraps, the last day of the regular season should really be called Ben Uzoh Day. #BenUzohDay

Paul Jones
