Full FG unit work today. Working between 32 and 38 yards out. http://t.co/hjdYDjOjCA
Give me Gennady Golovkin versus Andre Ward, please.
By the time Team USA gets to the Garden, the team should be picked, or at least all but decided, so there's that.
August, normally a slow month basketball-wise, is going to be really good. Big Strick, Elite 24, Team USA in New York for five days
Sad Amtrak basketball http://t.co/KqRauBLB1R
Great that NBA is thinking creatively, but if every solution comes with "more back-to-backs" and/or "start season even earlier," then, blah.
Week-long All-Star break seems like a cart-before-horse thing. Good idea, but like midseason tourney, need to re-think full 82 games first.
Marcus Thornton feels a lot older than 27, though. Or maybe I'm crazy?
Derek Hawkins 9th in Commonwealth Games in 2:14.15. First Brit home. Just outside PB. Aussie Michael Shelley wins in 2:11:15.
Justin Dentmon signed a deal in China with Qingdao Double Stars according to Alex Yam
I'm told terms of partnership between Croatian assistant Zan Tabak and Real Madrid is a one-year deal.
Zan Tabak is finalizing an agreement to become assistant coach for Spanish power Real Madrid, per source.
Like, how are Caron Butler and Ben Gordon getting $4.5m a year and Marion will probably have to settle for minimum or room exception?
Not even considering Bledsoe or Monroe as free agents because I'd be absolutely stunned if Phoenix and Detroit don't match any offer.
Except for Shawn Marion. It's crazy that Evan Turner got signed before him.
Working on this article about free-agency bargains left on the market and we're definitely scraping the bottom of the barrel at this point.
With Lionel Hollins hired by the Nets & Byron Scott by the Lakers, there's just 1 fewer ex-Sun Devil coaching in the NBA than playing in it.
Too bad Patty Mills is injured, would have been fun to see a lineup of he, Exum, Ingles, Andersen, and Baynes at the World Cup.
You know, hiring a coach to be the disciplinarian instead of Kobe Bryant
The Lakers were impressed by Scott's reputation as a disciplinarian, believing that temperament is the right fit for a young team.
Just saw Lucy, c'mon man ... You can't be serious.
Byron Scott to KCBS' Jim Hill: "A dream come true. I always wanted to coach the Lakers, especially when I got to coaching. It's so unreal."
I'm told Byron Scott will likely have four assistants. At this point, I'm told he is open minded toward how he will fill out staff
I think I've counted SIX times on TV broadcast and post-game where they've dropped the "13th quality start for JV this season" line. Jeez.
That's why all the talk of matching a coach to this year's roster is silly. This year's roster doesn't matter, big picture. BK
Byron was accused in N.O. of inflexibility, esp. on offense. Interesting to see how he adapts to 3 yrs of constantly changing rosters. BK
Happy Summer Night, everyone!!! http://t.co/UX9Q4bOjlc
Source tells me Byron Scott hire is not a done deal yet. However Scott just told Jim HIll in a phone interview he is the new Laker coach.
I like oak, myself. How 'bout you, Jimmy ... are you an oak man?
What comes in the $250 "Artist VIP package" for the T-Pain show?
I forgot Steve Nash was still on the Lakers/in the league/a thing
Source close to Lakers tells me the Byron Scott hire is not a done deal yet. Seemed surprised Scott is saying that it is done.
Scott to Jim Hill: “It feels fantastic. This is a dream come true."
Byron Scott tells Jim Hill: “It feels fantastic, this is a dream come true."
Who wants to go to this T-Pain concert with me
T-Pain is playing with a live band at the Double Door on August 27 and I think I have to go.
Gary Shaw, Geale's promoter: "In all my years of boxing, Golovkin is the best 160-pounder I have ever seen."
Signs you've been writing about the NBA a bunch lately: When you spell Dwayne Bowe's first name Dwyane.
I actually like the nickname "Johnny ShitShow" better than "Johnny Football"
In fact, George Mikan (39), Jim Pollard (39), Magic Johnson (16) and Kurt Rambis (37) didn't even hit 40 games as Lakers head coach.
Of the six previous former Lakers players to become Lakers head coaches, only Jerry West and Pat Riley lasted longer than one season.
If anything, non-traditional media outlets still don't get enough access.
Just to be safe, though, the Lakers still have a fourth interview scheduled with Byron for Tuesday. BK
Hilarious and cool that Kareem wear his own jersey to workouts with Hibbert.
Golovkin was nowhere near set on that punch, either. Was getting tagged as he threw it. Boom. Just an absolute monster. Who's next?
Gennady Golovkin just knocked a guy out with a punch as he was getting drilled square in the face. Wow.
Boom. And a right hand from Golovkin ends Daniel Geale's night. What. A. Monster.
Was Byron Scott hired? Lakers maintain they are still negotiating
Incredible. Never seen that before. A four minute first round.
Was that a four minute round?
Bloggers are definitely the reason people report things with anonymous sources. Nailed that one.
Lakers maintain they're still negotiating with Scott. We'll see how this transpires
This game has extra innings written all over it.
The Lakers aren't holding a press conference Sunday. Monday is the earliest Byron Scott would be formally introduced.
Jennings wins by split decision. That one point gave him the decision on one card. Without it, it would have been a majority draw.
I'm told Byron Scott hopes to have his press conference on Monday. But not clear at this point
Huge point deduction on Perez there. Could be a difference maker. Perez has faded badly the last four rounds or so.
Hard not to root for Irish Mike Perez.
Judging from the Lakers' recent trend of hiring former Cavs coaches, looking forward to David Blatt coming to L.A. in a few years.
Got to go with Lawler here. Great fight.
It took longer for the Lakers to hire Byron Scott than some marriages last...non-Kardashian marriages.
One has to wonder how much of Marwin's fielding difficulties has to do with his hamstring. Looks like it's really limiting his movement.
Perez likely leading through seven, but showing signs of fatigue. Jennings needs to get busier to make up for those early rounds.
The certainty of the "Get Love at all costs" crowd is tough to listen to. It's a tough one, not a no-brainer.
The Lakers will hold a team option on the fourth-year of the deal with Byron Scott
4 years $17 million is basically a 2-year deal with a signing bonus tacked onto the back end because Durant will get to pick his coach.
Byron Scott is the seventh former Laker to take over as the team's head coach.
Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to terms with Byron Scott on a four-year contract to become the team's head coach, ESPN reports.
Lakers deal with Byron Scott will be four years, $17 million
Sources: Lakers have hired Byron Scott as next head coach. Sides have agreed to terms
Lakers deal with Byron Scott will be for four years, according to sources
Bryant Jennings doesn't know what to do with Mike Perez so far. Getting beat to punches, consistently out landed. Perez looking good.
Harold Lederman should narrate audiobooks
A little over 24 hrs before I go off the grid. Thank you Cleveland for signing Wiggins! Bledsoe, Monroe...,chill for ten days or do
Lakers have agreed to terms with Byron Scott to be their next head coach
Daishaun Grimes Harmony High school, FL 6-2 105 LB Has committed to Temple
I think I could live on just sticky rice and peanut sauce.
Trailing most of the game, Indiana uses late surge to beat Purdue in the alumni game, 116-113. Teague 47, Watford 30, Wilmont 28, Hulls 25.
Thank you everyone for the Italian recommendations. Seriously, very helpful, will check them out. This place is still great.
About to check out Mike Epps live tonight. Hope he puts on a good show.
Best Italian since I've moved to NYC: Manetta's in Long Island City
For those taking all that a bit too seriously - those are the %s of the max they could have gotten over the number of years they signed for.
Anthony Johnson is a BEAST!!
Back-to-back 3s from Jordan Hulls pulls Indiana in front 114-111 with 51 seconds. 26-11 run.
I can't wait for the NFL season to start. Only 40 more days. I'm expecting a pretty good season from my Buccaneers. I'll predict nine wins.
Let's do this Rumble.
Mavericks have had a strong summer, on paper. Never know how chemistry will play out, but a good haul for them
Take me out to the Ballgame. Bend Elks Rule! http://t.co/X0CHRchIgA
No reason. I just liked the facial expression. http://t.co/L8PwbWzfMP
If you want to get really pedantic - and really, who DOESN'T want this? - Roy Hibbert only received 95.95% of his max, too.
Stern felt that branding it "World Cup" would give it some added cache in the U.S., where the tourney is widely ignored by the public.
Alternative theory - it was really dark in that club.
Purdue on top of Indiana, 94-86, with 10 minutes left in the alumni game at IUPUI.
Obviously, Escobar’s a run on the board at this point, but here’s the tag. http://t.co/IO7lSboWqD
