76ers have also signed 32nd pick KJ McDaniels-but I have yet to see anything on it - also no Malcolm Lee on preseason roster @BBallInsiders

Eric Pincus

I haven't seen it yet but 76ers must have waived injured Pierre Jackson, generously paying $400k -not on preaseason roster @BBallInsiders

Eric Pincus

Not quite finished with @BBallInsiders Philadelphia 76ers Team Salary - always a challenge - but added Jerami Grant basketballinsiders.com/philadelphia-7…

Updated @BBallInsiders Houston Rockets for revised Kostas Papanikolaou salary/MLE - guarantee schedule TBD basketballinsiders.com/houston-rocket…

Jerry Zgoda

We're headed to overtime here in Mankato

Mike Trudell

Kobe is always great, honestly. Really smart, says exactly what he thinks. Also Nash. RT @YousifAuraha: your favorite player to interview?

Mike Trudell

Depends if Nash is fully healthy. If not: Lin, Kobe, Johnson, Boozer, Hill. RT @yoisaac16: what might be the starting lineup this season?

Mike Trudell

Mike Trudell

Yes indeed, minutes at the 4 and 5. I like him a lot. RT @cgrivas13: Do you think Davis should be given minutes at the 5 off the bench?

Mike Trudell

Sixth Man fits the best. RT @theJMIKEshow: any word on the Swaggy's role as being either a starter or 6th man a la Jamal Crawford?

Mike Trudell

Everyone's cool. If I had to pick … Julius Randle. RT @benrogers24: @Mike Trudell easiest new guy to interview in terms of personality?

Mike Trudell

Well, I mean, that'd be fun! But nah. RT @JustinYad: @Mike Trudell is kobe averaging 50 this season or what?

Mike Trudell

Boozer/Nash/Kobe. RT @LosAng_Rafael: @Mike Trudell @Los Angeles Lakers any guesses on who will be Randles/ Clarkson mentor?

Mike Trudell

Kobe's in midseason shape, playing weight around 215. Looks sharp. RT @my_definiSEAN: @Mike Trudell :-: does he look like "him"?

Monte Poole

Reggie McKenzie's biggest failing is misjudging talent (players & coaches). And he came with a rep for spotting playing talent. #Raiders

Belichick is rolling. This presser (while painful) is still better than "Weekend Update" on #SNL

Jon Krawczynski

Well then. RT @JayGlazer: Again breaking news On FOX Sports: Raiders just called Dennis Allen and informed him he is fired

Mark Medina

Nash on if he can sustain through season: "It’s been such a bad run with that thing, that nerve, that I don’t want to make any forecasts."

Brian May

Somewhere Colin Kaepernick is watching this Bill Belichick press conference saying, 'He talks too much.'

Mark Medina

Nash has reported feeling great about nerve issues in back. So I asked him how confident he can sustain issue through season.

Dwain Price

#Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said his first practice Tuesday will consist mainly of defense. They go nowhere this season without it.

Lang Greene

Wrote this earlier ... Iman Shumpert might ultimately be the odd man out in New York basketballinsiders.com/nba-am-iman-sh…

John Gonzalez

Yeah this RT @JoshNorris: "If anyone wants to go after Tom Brady, you have to come through me," Steve Young defending Brady

Ben Standig

Dilfer, Steve Young and Ray Lewis burying the Patriots worse than the Chiefs. I agree with everything they're saying. BB let Brady down.

John Gonzalez

I think Steve Young just challenged people to fight him on behalf of Tom Brady.

Lang Greene

Corey Brewer understands he might have to come off bench now with Andrew Wiggins in Minny startribune.com/sports/wolves/…

Ryen Russillo

RG3 still went up. Alex Smith after hours trading at extremely high volume. Many traders will wonder why they ... tmi.me/1eM2Yj

The two Rob Lowe's look like old Tom Brady and now Tom Brady.

Ben Standig

Just jealous. Last time a pro team I root for won it all we didn't have internet. RT @ektraynor: who are you, the ghost of Christmas past

Jay King

That can't possibly be true, can it? I mean... (OK, fine. I'll shut up about football. *Goes back to writing about Rondo and Brad Stevens.*)

Jay King

Dear lord. RT @ochocinco: Gronk is the only person I've seen incline & bench using the 250 pound dumbbells...

Ben Bolch

Clippers reconvene, ready to erase memories of that Game 5 fw.to/UEhxrMH

Mike Wise

Might have to jump on the Broncos-Peyton bandwagon before it's over.

Ben Standig

Gronk just Kelce'd those defenders into the end zone.

Ted Davis

So the Chiefs lead the Patriots 41-14. If you can figure out this years NFL give me stock tips or lottery numbers, something helpful!

Molly McGrath

I've never been more excited for a touchdown in such a lopsided game. #Garoppolo!

Jon Krawczynski

QB controversy in New England

Ryen Russillo

Had no idea tonight was the first time a HOF QB had a bad game. Cool to see history.

Michael Lee

So, Chiefs stomp the Pats. If the Royals can beat the A's on Tuesday, it'll be the most glorious 48 hours for KC sports fans since...when?

Amin Elhassan

Hope neither of those dudes play for any other team. So cool in this day and age.

Alex Kennedy

Frye sees similarities between last year's Suns and this year's Magic. Like PHX was, ORL is projected to struggle but could surprise people.

Dan Woike

I'm in a really good place right now on social media - lets ruin it with a plane Q + A. I'll log back on post takeoff and we'll rap.

Mike Wise

If I'm Charlie Weiss, I let Bob Kraft know I'm not under contract with anyone anymore.

Kristina Leahy

I went to show choir camp where Garoppolo went to college. EIU. #funfact?

Eric Smith

Janeane Garofalo. I didn't know she backed up Brady. Interesting!

Ben Standig

Red Sox finished last in the AL East. Brady looks incredibly mortal. Celtics are lottery bound yet again. Boston, you had a good run.

Kristina Leahy

What world is this?! RT @WEEI: Jimmy Garoppolo replaces Tom Brady at quarterback.

Frank Madden

Theory: the NFL's celebration rules were written by the same jerk that writes all of @Andrew Sharp's columns.

Alex Kennedy

Channing Frye said Ronnie Price, Marcin Gortat, Tobias Harris praised the city, fans, facility and roster, which persuaded him to join ORL.

Darnell Mayberry

How old do I feel? At Wizards media day, son of a guy I covered in his prime showed up at the end for pictures. damn you, David Stockton.

Alex Kennedy

Aaron Gordon on if he's eyeing Rookie of the Year: "Of course, but at the same time I'm going to do what's best for the team first."

Jabari Davis

Some guy named Bean from @Los Angeles Lakers Media Day. http://t.co/7JzB9EGpir

Sean Grande

So, this week we just keep Michigan quarterbacks on the field no matter what?

Molly McGrath

I want to turn off this awful game but I can't do it...Can't. Look. Away. This is just plain embarrassing. #Patriots

Jimmy Spencer

Wait, your penalized for dropping to your knees after a touchdown? OK, the NFL makes zero sense.

Jorge Castillo

Wait, what was that last penalty on KC for? Kneeling?

Chuck Swirsky

automatic penalty....really?

Alex Kennedy

Aaron Gordon: "Some older guys fall into the idea that it's okay to lose. As young guys, we don't know any better. We expect to win."

Chuck Swirsky

That's unsportsman like?

Mike Wise

After Jeter retiring, I think all my old-man hopes rested on Tom Brady. Now I'm feeling incredibly ancient.

Tony Jones

Gordon Hayward has a new max contract. Can his game follow? - sltrib.com/sltrib/jazz/58…

Sean Cunningham

This has to be Tom Brady's worst game ever.

Dan Woike

Can't wait to recline my seat and troll the entire internet

Rob Hennigan: "We're in discussions with Nik and Tobias' representatives ... Our hope is to try to get [extensions] done before [Oct.] 31."

Aaron Falk

Don't know that he needed to. But he did. RT @UTESnJAZZ can u clarify? why does Trey need to apologize for someone leaking his pics?

Nick Friedell

Remember the Titans and Van Wilder are both on right now. What a way to start the beginning of the new year.
