Wizards have lost 7 straight on the road and haven’t won a road game since beating the Lakers on Jan. 27. That’s 35 days.
Reports this a.m. that Denver has fired coach Brian Shaw prior to tonight's game vs. Bucks.
Remember when Brian Shaw was the hottest coaching name in the game, but still couldn't get a first job?
Maybe don't let the reigning Coach of the Year and the reigning Executive of the Year go immediately after winning 57 games.
Things weren’t ideal for Shaw in Denver, but some are better suited to be lead assistants. He was excellent for Pacers.
Then keep playing in the NBA until he's 38. Which seems pretty optimistic at this point.
I wouldn't be surprised if Lowry sits Wed vs. Cavs. Smart play is get him 100%. Why invest two games and set him back in 3rd?
RE: Parker wanting to play with France this summer, has always been his intent. Play at Euros, retire from international play after Rio.
Stevens on Thomas' first player of week honor: "He’s had a good impact, and when you win you get recognized."
Butler, on his and Rose's return timeline running concurrent: "We both want to make it back before the end of the season."
Nuggets were careening toward bottom-5 rankings in both off. & def. efficiency. Currently 24th & 25th. 28th & 26th since Feb. 1.
They haven't announced it, but my guess (guess) is Nuggets make Melvin Hunt the interim coach. He's wildly positive and well-liked.
At least Brian Shaw didn’t have to go through SIX WEEKS.
Shaw and Lawson had some tense locker-room moments this season, per several league sources. Faried has plateaued/regressed. Just bad times.
DENVER, CO. — Shaw, shanked.
Nuggets *just* missed out on a George Karl return.
How did Denver wait this long to fire Shaw? Was clear the team had turned on him months ago.
Dame Dash with @realsway on how perfect is evil is a sound bite I need on repeat
Denver was basically a schematic disaster on both sides of the ball this season. Roster is flawed, but Shaw didn't mold it the right ways.
Another possible destination for Thibs: Denver fired Shaw, according to the Woj.
Phone conversation with a co-worker this morning: "Man, you sound like s*** today." Well alright then...
If JaVale McGee, Andray Blatche, and Nick Young are your core, the lack of veterans isn't the problem with your rebuilding. Your core is.
Denver has fired coach Brian Shaw, league source tells Yahoo Sports.
All five on display last night. Brook hit offensive glass. Deron efficient. Team dropped 86 from paint/3/FT. Thaddeus, Markel did work.
Thibs said Bulls are still exploring options as far as adding another player.
Josh Smith on Harden: 'I think the suspension is absurd if you ask me.'
Memphis is 74-29 since Jan 14th last year when Marc Gasol plays (71.8%)
Why they do that to Steve Francis?!
Nice to see Rondo finally make some shots for Dallas. Aminu's energy off the bench at both SF and PF continues to be big.
Given level of "hate" by Wizards re: Bulls, Noah w/o Rose/Butler/Gibson tonight will be like Ness w/o Untouchables vs. Capone.
Just finished Mavs-Pellies. They lost, but impressive how NOP has scrapped w/ weird lineups and fringe players amid all the injuries.
Josh Smith on James Harden suspension: "I think the suspension is absurd."
Scott plans to keep same starters for rest of this 3-game trip: Clarkson (PG), Ellington (SG), Kelly (SF), Boozer (PF), Sacre (C)
Bulls will use 20th different lineup vs. Wizards. Thibodeau sounded like he's considering Hinrich again.
OFFICIAL: CJ Harris moves to Vef Riga
Question of the week: How does ESPN plan to broadcast the NEC title game if its at St. Francis Brooklyn? Have you ever seen that place?
Butler said he was 'devastated' to learn news he would be out 3-6 weeks. Said injuries are just part of the game
Nick Young did not do anything at shootaround. Byron said Nick is a game time decision after missing past 3 games with swollen left knee
Jimmy Butler just spoke to the media. Says he doesn't know if he'll be closer to the 3-week timeline or 6 weeks. Said he could use the rest
Butler speaks and is in good spirits. Hopeful to return before regular season ends. Says there's less pain today. Ligament just needs rest.
Golden said UM still on lookout for another CB. Perhaps transfer who doesn't need to sit out a year
Butler said he knew injury was serious right when it happened. http://t.co/pT4dFVyZtX
Jimmy Butler addressing media http://t.co/HhboPAyl8m
I asked Kevin McHale who would start in place of James Harden tonight- he told me I could come to the game tonight and find out.
Gibson still booted.
Taj Gibson still in a walking boot. Out at least a week and could be 2.
There are good & bad newspaper reporters just like there are good & bad Internet reporters, but to make a sweeping generalization is lazy.
So long, Cary Williams http://t.co/XJzpom8DIc
Eagles released CB Cary Williams but the sconces will still count against the 2015 cap.
Strange but true: Rockets have a better winning percentage this year without Dwight Howard (19-8, .704) than they do with him (22-10, .688)
My 12-year-old cousin finished first in his latest tournament by shooting a 68. Wow, better than I'll EVER shoot: http://t.co/T0KcqZmpbh
UM now using devices on players to monitor heart rate, distance run, like Philbin did last year
At least one NYC/National newspaper reported the initial Anthony Mason news 2 days after 1st reported on the Internet.Don't get me started
Today's Tip Off is pretty thick with numbers. Very curious your thoughts on new stat. Think it is best I've created
Always grateful for this woman. Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. http://t.co/MYDU66IkTR
Solid view for Israel's All-Star game http://t.co/h0XTeKZUK2
Parker’s per-36 numbers are down this year, sure, but he’s not terrible. Any team will take 17.3 points and 6.1 assists.
Kevin Love missed shootaround with an illness. He is probable for the Celtics game.
Plus, of course, a hamstring injury isn’t ideal for a point guard who relies on his speed.
Tony Parker is 12th all-time in playoff minutes (7,006) and 16th in games played (985). Those minutes are taking a toll this year.
But by all means, let's champion and defend newspaper reporters at the expense of Internet writers, as if it were still 2006.
After a tough, productive practice Monday, Bucks set for Denver tonight. 8:00 ON FSW.
I have literally had these nightmares. And it's real?!?! http://t.co/BeKxbgbl2Y
Kyrie Irving participated in shootaround. He'll be a game-time decision for the Boston game.
Marbury's Beijing Ducks defeated Mudiay's Guangdong Tigers 107-105 in OT. Ducks move on to CBA Finals. Mudiay's next game will be in the NBA
DeMarcus Cousins (sprained left ankle) is questionable for tonight's game at New York.
Avery Bradley on Perk playing with LeBron now: "I'm pretty sure it's weird for him too."
As anticipated overnight, Mario Little and his deal with Spanish club Manresa are official, per agent @chrispatrickjr
Doc Rivers also has his degree from Marquette after going back to college early in his NBA career with Atlanta.
The Phoenix Suns have reached agreement with center Earl Barron on a second 10-day contract, league source tells RealGM.
Jeff Adrien has returned from China season, NBA playoff-eligible, as a possible signing for teams seeking an athletic frontcourt addition.
Stevens: LeBron "looks like the MVP to me. I know we've got all this argument but man is he hard to stop."
Expected to find maybe one player with a college degree and I've already found 3: C.J. Wilcox, Dahntay Jones and Ekpe Udoh. More to come.
Stevens on playing Cleveland now: "We started Rondo, Jeff, Sully and Kelly" the last time.
Since the RPI was changed in 2005, the highest-rated Big Six team to miss the NCAAs was Cincy (40th) in '06. Texas is now 38th.
Memphis 5 man bench lineup is +14.8 per 100 possessions with d rating of 77.4 tough for Jazz rookies
Kelly Olynyk says he does not yet know if he will play tonight. He's waiting to see how his ankle feels after shootaround to make a decision
"Well, Bissy plays tee-ball and they both take piano lessons. Soccer? That's all Gravy."
Hedo Turkoglu said he had been recruited by some U.S. colleges despite playing professionally since 16. Wouldn't name them, though.
Karl Cochran gets SoCon Player of the Year and Mike Young earns Coach of Year as Wofford sweeps the top awards in the league.
Been canvassing the Clippers' locker room about players going back to college for their degrees. Some pretty interesting stuff to come.
KJ will likely get same year 1 + 2 $, but not be locked into horrid non-guaranteed 3rd + 4th yrs. Likely easy decision to turn down contract
The Clippers bench has been criticized plenty but literally everyone who played against Minny contributed to that victory.
Bottom line: as long as KJ gets offered qualifying offer, he'll get same money as yr 1 & 2 of Hinkie contract would have guaranteed.
Thinking Jordan Hamilton probably earned another 10-day contract from Clippers with his 10-point game last night.
Bob Bradley, who should never have been replaced as USMNT coach by the incompetent Klinsmann, said to be in running for Aston Villa post.
If you refuse to tailor contract offer to specific prospect/pick, run risk of risk/reward in them accepting 1 yr tender not be in your favor
A team using its leverage to get a friendly contract is, almost by definition, lowballing. Doesn't make it wrong.
A third player has landed on the Magic's injury report. The team says Luke Ridnour has a strained right hamstring.
I don't know why this keeps bothering me but I can't get over 3 Duke Clippers not putting Johnny Dawkins on their All-Blue Devils 1st team.
Via JR Smith's Instagram.... And, no, I don't think I'd take that risk: http://t.co/iNINa2XZVw
I still say Biscuits and Gravy would make fine names for a daughter and son.
Christian Laettner stomping the Kentucky guy in 1992, THAT deserved a suspension. James Harden's little game of footsie? Not so much.
Some dates to know: May 12-17 - 2015 NBA Draft Combine, May 19 - NBA Draft Lottery, June 6-8 - adidas Eurocamp, June 25 - 2015 NBA Draft
Some dates to know: April 8-11 - Portsmouth Invitational Tournament , April 26 - NBA Draft Early Entry Deadline (11:59 p.m. ET)
With Guangdong's season over, Will Bynum is a free agent again who will attract plenty of interest. He will be NBA postseason eligible
Not a big fan of the James Harden suspension. There was a kick, but it was more a heat of the moment reaction. Suspension seems punitive.
Welcome to Cleveland - where The King reigns and... it's still snowing!! http://t.co/ZMBCCWI3hB
In 12 games Mudiay averaged 18 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 5.9 apg, shot 51.4% from the field, 34.2% from 3 & 57.4% FTs.
#Celtics at #Cavs: Cavs hope to get Kyrie Irving back for tonight's game. clevelandcavaliersblog.blogspot.com/2015/03/game-6…
I think people are underselling how bad the 3rd + 4th year team options are on Hinkie 2nd round pick contracts. Really bad spot for players.
With Guangdong's season over, Mudiay will return to the US and begin preparing for the 2015 NBA draft.
Emmanuel Mudiay has 15 points, 7 rebs, 8 assists, 6 TOs on 5-14 shooting in a loss for Guangdong today. His season is over.
Snowing pretty hard in Minneapolis so maybe I'll just meet the Clippers in Oakland on Sunday.
...has a $500,000 if he leaves to the NBA to coach or be a GM. $2 million buyout to go to another college.
What puts a smile on the faces of Gar/Pax? Fred Hoiberg signed a 10-year, $20 million contract with Iowa State back in 2013, but ....
[like i said, i knew i had heard it before]
[i also feel like someone else had called Nerlens 'The Eraser' but i can't seem to remember/find who]
Might be time for big Nazr to come in tonight and issue a Code Red on Mr. Nene.
And finally, Nene tells the Washington Post: "I don’t want to talk about Chicago. You know I hate them. You can put that.'' It's put.
Next five games for the Bulls: Wiz, OKC, at Indy, at San Antonio, Memphis... ugly just came in the room and plopped down on the sofa.
Bulls kicking the tires on JaVale McGee? We can only pray for that. As far as Nate, all quiet on that front as of last night.
Brooklyn shouldn't feel so bad about welcoming the Warriors - it was the same at MSG. Curry has become everyone's favorite.
