If Pete Carroll is smart, he'll give the ball to LenDale White on this 4th and 1.
Just make Drake the executive director of the NBPA. Every player could get behind that.
I like Yu
Geez, the Nats are taking this Nick breakup news hard. They were up 6-0 before Andi broke the kid's heart. Just lost 7-6 in 9th to Marlins
Down 6-0 at one point,Marlins score 4 in ninth to beat Washington, 7-6. Marlins (52-53) have won 8 of 9, pull within 6 games of first place.
Presentations from finalists for NBA Players Association executive director position have dragged later into night than originally scheduled
Watching Legends of the Hidden Temple. Lmao, they gave this out as a consolation prize for losing teams: http://t.co/SEHzgYR1k1
Of course it's Josh Reddick who catches the third out.
It's official: Lakers have a signed contract from their new coach, Byron Scott. News conference will be Tuesday morning at 11 a.m.
Josh Reddick's putting together of inning of defense. Leaping catch at the wall. Then, a diving catch. Impressive.
You know, it's easy to make fun of LHN for replaying the same game all the time, but I'll be damned if I can flip past it with USC up 38-26.
OK, I'm done. Consider yourselves lucky there are only three submissions allowed per person.
Things NBA players retweet are the new things NBA players tweet
Even if Rose doesn't make the US team, it seems like this has been a huge confidence boost for him.
Player agents held a conference call today to commiserate over selection process. Same old divisions and dysfunction within union.
Tech CEO Dean Garfield has arrived at NBPA meeting in Vegas, where three finalists are making presentations ahead of vote on new director.
Brewers batters tonight: 10Ks, 0 BBs. "And I'm freeeeeee! Free swinging!"
Writing about this case is as hard as Larry Fedora's abs. Internet, did I do that right?
This Jenny Lewis album is flames.
NBPA executive committee member not thrilled with former players trying to hijack meeting with agendas.
So about those Stephen Vogt numbers vs. lefties. .238 BA vs. lefties. Forget those stats.
I wasn't even accounting for the possibility of a few players exceeding expectations. Just thinking about the stuff you can pencil in
Off the top of my head and not to be taken seriously, here's how I'd have both conferences (assuming Love to CLE) http://t.co/Ku44bheB5m
The new Rose:“When I came back last season I wanted it too, too bad. I was kind of forcing the game. I don’t have anything to prove."
That was among the craziest endings to a baseball game I've ever seen.....and they're 12
One player in the room in Vegas believes progress is being made and that NBPA will get the Executive Director settled
Rose on proving his doubters wrong: "It's going to be fun. You're going to see a lot of people change, but it will be funny."
No union in sports needs strong leadership more than the NBAPA. Got clobbered in last CBA negotiations. Another a few years away. Must act.
NBA owners have to be grinning at the continued dysfunction shown by the players union. What a mess.
Stephen Vogt came into the game hitting .238 vs LHP as opposed to .380 vs RHP. No home runs vs. lefties this yr. Until now.
NBA union certainly is troubled, but I'm growing weary of grumbling players/agents. It's been 17 months. You have to pick somebody!
But union leaders want vote on three finalists (Roberts, Garfield and Ussery) to happen tonight at 11 PM ET/8 PT as originally scheduled
Word I'm getting is some players in Vegas union meeting are pushing to re-start search process -- again -- like we saw at All-Star Weekend
Question: When will you be Derrick Rose again? Rose: “Now. I’m there.”
Another player in the NBPA meeting room texts Yahoo: "This is a cluster. They're trying to slam a director down our throats."
The other 23 World Cup teams will combine for zero 2014 All-Stars.
Dumb question I've always had: How are seaplanes on Lake Union not constantly running into boats/Kayaks/etc.?
Team USA's World Cup team could feature up to 10 2014 All-Stars. Still a fantastic squad. Prohibitive favorites in Spain.
Truth be told, Stack's the least of the NBPA issues now. So many factions, so many agendas. In every way, union remains a house divided.
Also, Paul Pierce taking an active role in tonight's NBPA meeting and there is growing voice to hire an ex-player to be face of the union.
Should be a law where if you sign a 3-year, $12.7 million contract and you drink and drive you should never be allowed to drive again. Ever.
Stackhouse hasn't spoken in meeting setting in Vegas, but has been speaking with players one-on-one during breaks, sources tell Yahoo.
Still waiting to hear from Aussies kvetching that Patty Mills won't be allowed to play at WC one-armed ...
Donald's side believes he owns corporate shares of the Clips and thus, Shelly cannot sell them. Expect her side to force action to resolve
Another item up for heated debate at union meeting: Some in NBPA want to withhold licensing until after the next CBA. Not all players agree.
Donald's lawyer says they are weighing an injunction in the corporate case and will file a writ in 10 days, appealing judges ruling today
What the world really needs is another "action comedy" where circumstances dictate that a white cop and a black cop serve on the same beat.
NBPA executive committee wants to vote for an executive director tonight but there is pushback from some player reps who don't want to vote.
Some NBA agents began telling players to reconsider voting for new executive director earlier this afternoon.
Malone: "I’m not very concerned about the 'Kings of Confusion'..I know how hard all of us are working to turn this around.”
My poli-sci minor taught me politics is iinherently messy/illogical. Selection of next players union chief would make some doctoral thesis.
Re: last RT, it was strongly suggested when Chris Paul was named president, Jerry Stackhouse would end up with a union job. Didn't happen.
More Malone: "Our plan is not to appease the beat writers in the NBA and make sure they’re all happy."
Rose on coming season: "I just know we’re going to be somewhere up there. I don’t know what place. But I know we’re going to be a contender"
Any 154/160/168 pound fighter who avoids Golovkin, fine. Dangerous fight. Easier money to be made. But until you do, don't demand respect.
NBPA executive committee believes it will get a vote on a new executive director tonight, sources tell Yahoo Sports.
2017 lockout gonna be poppin
Rose on his message to Carmelo: "That if he was to come the game would be easy. Just plain and simple, we wanted him to come."
“We played Turkey in Turkey [in 2010 World Championship], but we also know that playing Spain in Spain is a different monster.” Kevin Durant
Rose on Kevin Love rumors: "That’s up to the front office. I’m riding with whatever decision they make. My job right now is to prepare."
Rose on criticism: "People are going to have stuff to say. But you can’t get mad at them. I got too many positives, my son, my family."
Coach K said he was hopeful that Rose would step up and take a leadership role on Team USA alongside Kevin Durant.
Stackhouse doesn't have official role in NBPA process, but has support. One player in room tells Yahoo, "He's trying to initiate a divide."
Rose on his status: "I’m really trying to make (the USA team). But if they decide to go another way, it’s no hard feelings."
Pistons'Spencer Dinwiddie will earn a little more than the min his first year ($700k) -next 2 years are at min with last year non-guaranteed
“I love where I am right now. I can’t answer that question.” Kevin Durant on whether he would consider a LeBron James style homecoming
As some expected, retired player Jerry Stackhouse showed at NBPA meeting and criticized process for executive director, source tells Yahoo.
Donald Sterling's lawyer Bobby Samini said he talked to Donald after today's ruling. His reaction: "Keep fighting!"
Rose at USA camp: "I know how special I am as a player. I know what I still can do. I’m only 25. I’ve been preparing for this moment."
Rose on his mindset: "I know how special I am as a player. I know I take the game serious. Basketball is my life so I can't give up."
This is better http://t.co/1PwY7FOg5o

BTW, Monfort brothers have stolen the Cubs' business model. Create an experience where poor saps come to the park even if the team stinks.
Statement by Shelly Sterling's lawyers http://t.co/Snpbsj2Nrk
Also told that, amid other topics at today's all-day union proceedings, players have been warned to brace for next lockout in summer of 2017
Coach K on USA's big-man rotation after Griffin & Love withdrew: "“Our main guy is Anthony Davis. (We will) see who else fits in."
But there are some in NBA's player/agent ranks who feel KJ too close to some league officials. Will this union ever find its Marvin Miller?
In my 20+ years of NBA coverage, union never more organized than these past few months with Kevin Johnson as the NBPA's spokesman. But ...
Rocket sirens go off in Tel Aviv, 02:30AM.
Labor lawyer with a pro-player sports background whose livelihood isn't totally tied to union salary ... isn't THAT what NBPA needs at last?
Whatever NBPA does today, they're well past the point of caring about it until they actually hire somebody to lead them.
According to Thibs, Dougie McBuckets foot problem from Summer League is obviously fine, Jimmy Butler groin is not serious.
For some reason, the joint I'm in has the Toronto mayor debate on. All they need is Chuck Barris and Gene Gene The Dancing Machine
Fans are hilarious. Bogdanovic is introduced today and already getting "he'd better perform or else" tweets. Give me a break.
Word is numerous agents, after conference call today, have advised players to seek delayed vote to ensure finalists indeed best finalists
""I think the ban will be lifted. There’s a new owner, a new sheriff in town. It’s going to be good." -- Shelly Sterling
Shelly Sterling said she "absolutely" thinks Donald Sterling will be allowed to attend Clippers games.
But the three finalists include two lawyers w/ no NBA ties (Michele Roberts and Dean Garfield) and longtime Dallas Mavs exec Terdema Ussery
Really wish I had used the tongs instead of reaching in with my hand just now after boiling some delicious sweet corn...
From the scrimmage the media watched [so take it with a grain]: Power Poll for USA PGs: 1. Curry, 2. Irving, 3. Rose, 4. Wall, 5. Lillard.
Crazier still: Union officials have included as much detail in their memo to players about the post-vote afterparty as the voting itself
According to schedule laid out by union, players will get 45-minute sessions to get to know the three candidates and then cast their votes
But I've heard rumbles that some on hand have asked if NBPA vote is happening too quickly given relative anonymity of the three finalists
NBA Players Association meeting underway in Vegas this afternoon along w/ Team USA camp. Voting for new union head is scheduled for tonight
Donald Sterling is the latest proof that money can't buy happiness, and that health trumps wealth.
Worst part of Donald's case was that Shelly had an "obligation as a wife." They were in court because of things Donald said to his mistress.
Someone please tell the folks calling Jays-Red Sox game on ESPN that the Jays made a trade
At one point today, DMC mentioned he and Kevin Durant were talking about how tired they both were from Monday's practice.
Pierce O'Donnell said he hopes the sale to Steve Ballmer closes just before Aug. 15.
Mo Williams' signing gives the Wolves something they still lack: A guy who can create his own shot almost anytime he wants
What's the difference b/w being on the Select Team vs. National Team according to DMC? "We're the bullies now," he said jokingly w/ a laugh.
Shellyw as asked if Donald was going to drop his other lawsuits. "I'm sure he will," Shelly said. Um...?
Shelly Sterling said Donald Sterling will be "very happy" w/ the decision. Good luck explaining that relationship.
You ever wonder why news on TV is somewhat despressing, then at the end they give you ONE heart-warming story? Why don't they reverse that?
You can never can talk someone into having a faith. You can build a relationship, share your experiences, and demonstrate love. No arguing.
After the shooting competition, DeMarcus Cousins said jokingly, he's the third splash brother now.
I caught up with former Kings coach Paul Westphal. Joined Lionel Hollins' staff in Brooklyn. Glad to be back. Happy Sac kept its Kings.
Donald's witnesses didn't help his case at all. He only called two, both from Vegas and both failed to make his case or move the needle.
Believe it or not, DeMarcus Cousins finished third to splash brothers Steph Curry & champ Klay Thompson. Beating Gordon Hayward.
Andre Drummond to Draymond Green: “Not In My House” http://t.co/jdZq572vG2
With the influx of high-caliber rookies, along with veterans changing teams, this has the makings of being a very interesting NBA season.
News about court ruling against Donald Sterling broke during Team USA practice. Sale to Ballmer approved. Several surprised, pleased folks
He also said he had a nice lunch with King and a nice dinner with Lionel Hollins, who he talked to about "my game & what he expects from me"
A lot of players were shaking off rust during first day at Team USA Basketball Camp in Vegas.
Oh and yes, we can talk hoops. Kevin Love's plans for free agency...Melo's comments...LeBron's number....and what's next for the Knicks.
Kevin Durant on Anthony Davis: "You can tell he's getting bulkier, bigger. He's more confident. You can tell he's working."
With the open minutes the Nets have at small forward, you'd think Bogdanovic will be given every opportunity to fill them.
Rose on his confidence: "My confidence level is through the roof."
Maryland offered 2015 F Markis McDuffie of St Ant's & Sports U
Some thoughts on Bogdanovic from earlier today. First, he made a point of saving – several times – he expects to contribute immediately.
DMC on loss 2 Splash Bros: "I'm not going 2 take it as a negative thing. I'm gonna just take it as I'm just the 3rd best shooter in the gym"

I also find “attacks on Christians” is no different than racism or bigotry. You should never label, judge or groups millions as the same.
DeMarcus Cousins after his 3-point contest against Klay & Steph: "I'm just letting it be known I'm now one of the Splash Brothers."
NBA on Sterling: "We look forward to the transaction closing as soon as possible." (2/2)
