I ripped Rogers for not spending a tiny bit more to give Jays a chance, so only fair to give them credit if Santana deal happens.
If Phil Jackson isn't an option and the Lakers are looking for a new coach, who should it be? Hollins? Jeff or Stan Van Gundy? Karl? Sloan?
Duncan was the greatest but Kobe's run in 2001 might've been the best basketball I had seen post MJ. Just efficient and a killer
Have some time on the train back to New York, so if anyone has any Nets or NBA questions, will take them on here for a bit.
Dom: "Take that shi . . . never mind."
Mind you, Dom will now have to take the rest of March off.
Big Dom is allowed to cuss now
How bout big Dom running the break!
Dom coast-to-coast. Of course.
Has a team ever had a boot camp between regular season and conference tournament? Asking for a friend.
Tigers 6 of 19 (0 of 5 from 3) with 10 turnovers.
David Pellom is having a rough senior day so far
People on downgrading this draft. I still see 8 realistic all-stars most drafts have 3 at most. Last year - 0
Pastner, faced with a crisis, reaches for .... DOM? It's 24-17, SMU.
The Heat will sign wing DeAndre Liggins to a second 10-day contract
This is a turnoverpallooza here at FedExForum. Tigers have ten, with nearly nine minutes left in first half.
We had Nick King at the three there briefly but the back to back turnovers by Pellom changed that
Might be a good idea for Rider to know where Sean Armand is at all times.
Tigers now have more turnovers (8) than seniors (7).
Chris Douglas-Roberts in the crowd, which is nice. But needs to be in the rafters.
Seriously, though, is there a more soothing sound than the sound of a basketball bouncing? Can be like the ocean.
Shaq received a standing ovation from everyone in the Erwin Center when he was announced to the crowd this morning.
Of course, for Larry Brown, every day is senior day.
Those 25 years went by quick. I remember hearing bout this guy named Shaquille O"Neal and being at the game when his team won state in 1989.
Jameer Nelson, who missed Orlando's last 2 games, is slated to play tonight against the Spurs.
The irony? MJ’s Bobcats have a triangle-friendly roster—a talented big with newly added shooters. But those two mostly eyeball each other
this game is a mess
Shaq's former high school coaches and teammates from San Antonio Cole all said he is just as gracious today as he was 25 years ago.
We now know: Crawford to Geron alley-hoop on break beats Geron to Joe alley-hoop in traffic
That concludes 17 Hours Later: Thoughts On A Raptors Win Over The Kings
Also, credit to Casey for putting Amir on DMC to start, not JV. Allowed everybody best opportunity to get into the game.
To clarify, I meant if Jim brought in the Donnie Walsh type rather than Phil specifically in a front office role. AK
Phil’s first steps? Probably run NY’s summer league team with a young coach to stir in a little triangle flavor into the team culture.
Good to see Thomas Robinson starting to find himself. Can’t script a weirder beginning to an NBA career.
Memphis vs SMU for Senior Day at the Forum. Ready for a great game of basketball!
Wait, I now have a defense! I wanted to match Doris Burke!
Phil in the Knicks’ front office? I can smell the burning sage. Woodson better thumb through Tex Winter’s little red triangle booklet.
Regarding my shirt choice today, I have no defense. I'm like Memphis vs. Cincinnati.
Question. If Jim felt he couldn’t work with Phil, but brought in someone else credible (a Donnie Walsh type) would that satisfy fans? AK
Phil should be careful. He could end up with some of that New York Knicks’ stuff on his shoe. Very hard to wipe that off.
Victor Oladipo will not play tonight, Jacque Vaughn said.
What time is too early on Saturday morning to start making noise so that neighbors would hear?
After game last night, one of ex-Kings came up to me, put hand on shoulder: "See, it wasn't personal. We just needed the win!" Big smile.
If this senior "night" I must have forgotten to turn my clock forward eight hours.
Still can't believe that Mav game last night. It felt very season on the brinkish. My head is still spinning. Traumatic euphoria. And words.
The time to just bench Smith, like for an entire game or two, as punishment for his shot selection has long passed. Get some backbone.
It was as if they were unaware Martin and Brewer leak out in transition. Like figuring that out was rocket science. Amazing.
Since Shaq is a 4-time NBA champion, 3-time NBA Finals MVP and a 15-time All-Star, etc., he is the greatest athlete in UIL history.
Just finished DET-MIN. DET's inability to improve at all on defense is astounding. 60 games, still clueless. I get they're young, but...
Keeping Blazers off board in last 4:26 a rare feat, Mavs haven't done that in win since 10/31/09. Clippers shutout in last 4:42 of 93-84 win
Pierce: "Me and Rondo share a special bond.... Our kids, they still hang out together. They hung out for his birthday (in L.A.), actually."
Officially predicting Raps finish 47-35. Boy, those final six games are nice and soft: @ MIL, PHI, NY, @ DET, MIL, @ NY
No truth to rumour that in honour of @BeezerSun's impending marriage, Rogers is going to spend money on a baseball player today.
Didn't get to see the Book of Mormon musical while in New York City. Heard it got two Urim and Thummims up.
Paul Pierce on Rondo launching 3-pointers: "If he continues to consistently knock down that shot, watch out."
KU warming up for one last smackdown before the postseason. http://t.co/Cw6cMxdlfm
Hey, Warriors fans, don't you at least dislike the Lakers a little less after they gifted you Steve Blake?
Shaq at his press conference after his 1989 Class 3A state championship team at San Antonio Cole HS was honored. http://t.co/903nIlApLc
Canton Charge F Kevin Jones has accepted a buyout to play in the Philippines.
Shaq was as gracious as he always is during this morning's ceremonies in Austin to honor the 25-year anniversary of SA Cole's state title.
Before last night Mavs hadn't held a team scoreless in final 3 mins all season. After going up 6 w/ 4:26 left Blazers finished 0/7 FG & 3 TO
Al Jefferson is balling lately. In each of his last four games, he has scored 25 or more points while shooting 60+ percent from the floor.
Ty Lawson had 30 points and 17 assists, joining Chris Paul and Stephen Curry as the only players with a 30-point, 15-assist game this year.
How does a plane just vanish? As someone who travels a lot...man that's scary to see
Also — anyone else think Indy should run more offense through Stephenson and less through George? Or that just me?
The Lakers have allowed 408 points in their last 3 games. That's the most points allowed by a team over a 3-game span in the past 23 seasons
Something funky always happens at the MAAC Tournament. Rarely does it go as planned. This year feels different, though, at least to me.
I’m getting worried about Roy Hibbert. Not getting as deep post position, not as aggressive around the rim recently. Is he not 100% healthy?
DVR Schedule EST: 12: KU-WVU, UK-UF, 2: UConn-UL, OK St-ISU, 4: Mizz-Tenn, 7: Belmont-EKU, 9: UNC-Duke, 10: New Mex-SDSU. What am I missing?
Moravian Lady Greyhounds out of DIII NCAA in 1st round, but no shame: Cabrini, as usual, a force. Congrats, fr making The Dance, LadyHounds!
Bottom line: St. John's must get a win at Marquette today. If not, anything short of winning the Big East Tournament next week means NIT
Still amazing that Lowry/DeRozan shot 6-for-24 last night, and Raps blew out a team they historically have trouble with.
Jazz have lost five straight, playing back to back to close out six-game trip, but still the Vegas favorite (-5.5) tonight in Philly.
Also important: New attempts to pressure Jim into bringing back Phil will, should they fail, make the Jim/Jeanie dynamic worse. BK
Black women are 40% more likely to die of breast cancer than whites (75% more likely in LA). Please get tested early y'all.
Edinburgh Kool Kats won Scottish Women’s Basketball League, defeating Glasgow Rocks 75-57 in the title decider.
Knicks at #Cavs: Cavs need to avoid major distraction of Z's jersey retirement and take care of business. clevelandcavaliersblog.blogspot.com/2014/03/game-6…
C's have 20 games left. Humphries: “I was just talking to Rondo a few minutes ago, [and he said,] ‘Let’s just have fun.'"
Reeling Utah on back-to-back, last game of 6-game roadie, goes to Philly tonight. Might be Sixers best chance of win for rest of season.
Warriors' bench beginning to produce right at point of season when rotations get tightened with playoffs coming.
To all the ladies out there: Happy International Women's Day. Fellas, take a moment to appreciate those in your life - family, friends et al
Thodoris Papaloukas who is celebrating his nameday today and Kostas Tsartsaris will be honored in tomorrow's Greek All Star Game
Gordon Hayward has been REALLY good on this trip - 18 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals shooting 47% and 40% from 3
Marvin Williams has hit a wall - On road trip shooting 29% FG and 24% 3 pt and 5 pts per game. So vital to Jazz success
The most Knicks thing ever: Phil Jackson comes in, gets full autonomy from Dolan, then completely falls on his face as an executive
Stat question - In December (16g) Jazz shot 82% from FT line. Since Feb 1 (16g) shooting 73.5% - Is this variance strange?
ESPN3 enters the mix in Springfield today with all four MAAC quarterfinals. Iona-Rider, Siena-Canisius, Saint Peter's-Manhattan, QU-Niagara
Finished reading Qaddafi's Point Guard and Eleven Rings recently. Two totally different types of basketball books, but both solid reads
Will prob have more on Indy next week, but they're down to 21st in points per possession. D remains mostly great, but margin for error small
My stance on Pacers lately has generally been unconcerned -- regular season malaise. But last night was really bad.
Orlando has been very patient in their rebuild. Interested to see how they handle this summer w/ two top 15 picks and up to $21m in cap room
Going on with Bill Pidto now!! @espnny
That actually was liquid football.
Over last 5 games Jazz offensive rating is 95.8 (medium 107.7) defensive rating 115.2 . Sixers last 5 off rating 90.7 defensive rat 100.7
Showtime at the Apollo was crazy. Used to love when people who couldn't sing sang gospel songs. Audience was MAD because they couldn't boo
Interesting suggestion. Would definitely purchase a package allowing me to watch historical NBA seasons at my leisure
Oliver Giroud just found a unique way of missing an open goal.
Is John Stockton's assist record unbreakable?
Quick glance at the comments section at Peachtree Hoops reveals that the pro-tank crowd is tired of losing. Makes perfect sense
Reading how Joakim Noah might be fined for telling Carmelo Anthony he's wasting his career with Knicks. No "self-apparent truth" defense?
Shaq led San Antonio Cole to the 1989 Class 3A state title. That was 25 years ago, and the UIL will honor that team today.
The UIL will receive a major boost his morning in Austin when Shaquille O'Neal makes an appearance at halftime of the 8:30 Class A Finals.
Just overheard 3 20-something guys comparing hair-gel application techniques. Would have made a great scene from a Judd Apatow movie.
Not too many huge games today as Championship Week opens today, just a few. A few
OFFICIAL: Panathinaikos fire coach Pedoulakis
it's the first time that the Lakers have ever allowed 130-plus points in each of three straight games.
Lakers allowed 407 PTS over last 3 games matching the most allowed by any NBA team over a span of 3 straight games over the past 23 seasons
Lakers become the first team after Nuggets (1990) to allow more than 130 points in each of three successive games
Al Jefferson’s shotchart of his last four games: 31.3ppg, 10.3rpg, 2.3apg, 1.3spg & 1.3bpg http://t.co/fgKly36Fp7
Lakers have $34.1 million in guaranteed salaries on books for 2015. $33.2 million of it is tied up in aging stars Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash
With their win last night, the Nuggets swept the season series over the Lakers for the first time since they entered the NBA back in 1976
Riddick Bowe ring walk to Phil Collins' In the Air Tonight for the first Holyfield fight still gives me goosebumps to this day
Tears flowing. Check how Larry Drew looks at O.J. Mayo following his ejection last night. http://t.co/i0aiIVrvAa
Amazing how much better Dwight Howard looks this season without the weight of free agency on his shoulders.
ICYMI: Lakers are in trouble.
Long stretches of adversity shows character. I always like to take note of how guys respond professionally in losing situations
Larry Drew investing time in Jeff Adrien in Milwaukee and he has responded by averaging 17.5 points and 7.5 rebounds over his last two
RE: Mirotic - the quicker he signs his first NBA contract, the quicker he can sign his second.
Drake's Best: 1. Take Care 2. Thank Me Later 3. NWTS 4. So Far Gone
Don't know about you, but I'm not that thrilled about Phil Jackson as an executive.
777 had perfect safety rating until SFO mishap and now there's the missing Malaysia flight. Still believe in the aircraft, tho.
This week's NBA rankings categories in LAT: Spinal Tap!
The NBA needs to expand to Hawaii. I'd cover that team. Plus my life hours would become normal if shifted five hours.
Another guy who belongs in that most underrated player discussion is Trevor Ariza.
With 29 wins on the season, the Bobcats have already exceeded their combined victory total from the previous two seasons
Guys I refer to as the most underrated player in the NBA on a regular basis: Ty Lawson, David Lee, Amir Johnson, Al Horford, David West.
BBL Trophy Semi-Final, 1st leg. Sheffield Sharks 60-62 Worcester Wolves 62. BBL Newcastle Eagles 94-74 Plymouth Raiders
Made it from downtown to the Mobil station in Cambridge on empty. Thank you Basketball Gods (and Based God). http://t.co/ZULgCeps1K
A more powerful message from Lakers fans would be, "We want Rudy!" instead of "We want Phil!"
