One more note: Couple of people said today that Faried's familiarity w/ Nene was key to his/USA's success on Saturday.
How I see USA roster: DeRozan & Drummond most likely to be out. Last 2 spots probably between Cousins, Hayward, Lillard & Plumlee.
... Now, of course, none of that excuses the awful actions of the small % of public safety officers who conversely strip away our safety.
2015 @findlayprep F Horace Spencer will visit Auburn this weekend after Rutgers today.
Most police officers, firefighter/paramedics & military officers have committed to give their lives for our safety. Don't forget that part.
Saying something like, "police are [fill in the derogatory]" is ignorant. Don't judge the service of MILLIONS based on stupidity of the few.
Jones rushed for 1,300 yards and 16 TDs as a junior. Rivals lists him at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds.
Lincoln HS (Jersey City) RB Devell Jones has verballed to Monmouth, per his Twitter page. Had some FBS interest, but decided not to wait.
Tim Danson hasn't yet commented on Moore-Bertuzzi settlement, which is interesting.
As for U.S. team withdrawal, Durant says tough decision, 2010 and '12 were great experiences, but he needed to step back and rest.
Embiid might get suspended for a tweet before he plays in an NBA game.
Durant, talking on NBA 2K15 panel today, recalling 1st meeting Stephen Curry at AAU tourney around age 10: "I thought he was white."
there are going to be so many think-pieces on Joel Embiid's twitter account this season I can already tell
Embiid. The GOAT.
Didn't ask this when it was announced, but what do Kings fans think of the signing of Sim Bhullar? Curious to hear your feedback...
"Yeah, well. Sometimes nothin's a real cool hand."

As expected, 2015 PG Jimmy Whitt to Arkansas over Mizzou and SMU, among others.
Bruno’s ultimate NBA goal: "I want to help the team win. I want champion with Toronto Raptors."
What is Bruno eating to get his 6,000 calories a day? “Pasta … all things.”
"The future, Mr. Gitts. The future!"
That means, waiver process aside, someone like Richard Crawford or Bacarri Rambo or Josh LeRibeus is again eligible for the practice squad.
Previously, players would lose their practice squad eligibility if they were on a gameday roster for 10 or more games in a season.
Among the changes to practice squad rules: Teams can have two players on the squad who played in all 16 games each of the last two seasons.
Question is whether who among Bertuzzi, Canucks and insurance companies will have to pay what share ... /2
Interesting convo with litigation expert; best guess is Moore-Bertuzzi settlement in $10-$15-million range. /1
Love how Kobe says in upcoming SI piece, "I'm 70 in basketball years." Adding fuel to the public skepticism, which will fuel him even more
Cool fact: Ex-Ducks WR Patrick Johnson has a Super Bowl ring (Ravens), but says the ring he wears is ’97 Vegas Bowl (Ducks over Air Force).
Do you ever get the Night Court theme song stuck in your head, but it's simultaneously infuriating and yet so intoxicating? Nope, not me.
Upgraded the suit game today.
The NFL announced that the practice squad rosters will expand from eight players to 10 for at least the next two seasons.

I love hearing a beat from Foster Sylvers and realizing it's a sample from the DOC.
It's been 24 hours. Still no sign of Pop's ALS ice bucket challenge video. The world missed out.
With Monmouth WBB off to Europe, I'll have a feature tomorrow on redshirt junior Sarah Olson. Ex-Howell star has waited a long time to play
I went back and did the math and research. It turns out Kobe’s high school basketball PER was !!!!!!!!!! AK

New Thunder Buddies podcast dropping later today.
Then I tried to lower my ATT-Uverse bill and instead wound up saving six bucks and getting 786 more channels because cable companies.
The cheapest flight from Memphis to Atlanta would take me through Miami and Charlotte because airlines.
My friends are models. http://t.co/z173dG4WTb
The Internet's hockey analytics dept. now hiring. No word on compensation, but opportunities to say 'I told you so' are unlimited.
If you're a Bulls/D-Rose fan who is down because he skipped summer practices/will not start meaningless exhibition, please put the bong down
I bought a new car today and went through the Taco Bell drive-thru on the way home. One can only make so many responsible decisions.
Every few days I remember that my favorite team is gonna start Brandon Weeden for at least 4 games this year, and part of me dies inside
Enjoy the experience of a new chapter in your world . Ask questions. Listen. Ohio University is awesome. The best four years of my life .

If you're a coach, and you talk specifically to a young player about NOT doing something, and he does it ... that's (at least) a bad sign.
Browns coach Mike Pettine was disappointed in Manziel. Said they've talked nonstop about Manziel's need to stay FOCUSED—Bad sign for Johnny.
I mean, I love Twitter, but it's objectively awful.
Twitter is terrible.
For the people that hate/are against seeing the Little League World Series on ESPN, you'll want to avoid the latest Sports Illustrated cover
The dozen of you who know the origins of the Monroe-Bavetta story alluded to in that last retweet just chuckled.

True story. Pre game ritual. Every game Dick Bavetta worked he'd look for me at the broadcast table and kiss the top of my bald head
What's wrong with this picture? http://t.co/1NXAWILDAD
Wouldn't be worried about the Rose stuff. They've said all along not everyone will play in every exhibition game. Rose has nothing to prove.
Now that they're both retired from basketball, let's hope Charles Barkley and Dick Bavetta make a bromance movie. http://t.co/3QwGkyKdBa
Sorry Harbaugh apologists, but I think I actually talk to him more 1 on 1 than anybody in the media. Ruins your... NARRATIVE... I know.
