It's "safe to say" I would like an In-n-Out double-double for dinner tonight.
Chris Webber: "I, personally, would be disappointed to see Golden State make any trades."
Tyson Chandler's career is very similar to Marcus Camby's. No. 2 overall picks who took a while but eventually became great defenders.
There were those who mocked TBS for 24 hours of A Christmas Story, and who's laughing now? Don't be on the wrong side of history, people.
Does the Bulls media (aka the Minutes Police) realize that Tim Duncan played 47 minutes last night? Pop should be arrested immediately.
Hearing what others have: Dallas is the likely destination for Rondo. Hearing he now expects to be dealt.
This is what Dallas' non-core salary looks like --- have to get to at least $9.851m in outgoing salary to get Rondo http://t.co/QsgM6djZB3
Mavs, already dangerous team in West, would become legit title contender w/Rondo. Big boost on both ends, particularly on D. Would be a coup
Celtics asked for too much last year for Rondo Raptors and others wouldn't cave now seems he'll go for far less
For five hours, commercial-free, on Christmas morning, LHN will run footage of Bevo roaming his ranch. I'm not making that up.
My interpretation of Harbaugh's comments: He is weighing all options until he has to make a call AS ALWAYS.
Now I'm reading every Woj Celts-Mavs trade tweet wondering whether he likes/loathes Danny Ainge and Mark Cuban.
The reality is this: Rondo's value no longer dictates an All-Star in return, and waiting until the trade deadline won't improve packages.
More Harbaugh: ".... Or talk about anybody else's process.."
Boston has reached the point of no return on a Rondo deal and Danny Ainge is moving fast toward sifting offers and making his best deal.
These are the only possible answers. http://t.co/NPS94w84uZ
Harbaugh, asked if his loyalties to Michigan might supercede all other loyalties" I don't talk any other job than the one I have...
Also, Brandan Wright has played really well the last few years and has less than 5,000 minutes on his odometer.
Tom Thibodeau just got to the United Center with earbuds in. I really want to know what he's listening to.
Been saying for years it's tough to get what people think is full value for Rondo and we're seeing that play out.
Flip said Anthony Bennett's 6 mins played in DC was due to painful blister under callus on his foot, didn't do much today in practice
Trade reaction is funny. Celtics fans think this isn't enough. NBA observers have different reaction.
I just traded myself for Rondo. Deal is done.
Reported Dallas offer of Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder would have to include either Raymond Felton or Devin Harris to clear cap rules.
Also, Bucks have 15 players under contract and are at league maximum. No roster spot available as of now.
Brandan Wright and Jae Crowder are both expiring contracts. I don't see how Rondo-Dallas deal gets done without more 1st rounders.
There could be more players and picks involved in a larger deal, but those mentioned have been major part of talks, sources said.
Dallas' 2015 first-round pick is part of proposed Rondo deal, and there could be further draft considerations as part of a package.
Asked Harbaugh if he still intends to coach out this contract. Harbaugh: "I've said I'm going to finish this 'til the end."
Spurs have scrapped shootaround for tomorrow. I know at least one follower probably incensed about it. BECAUSE THESE GUYS ARE PAID MILLIONS
Do you think people would get it if I started writing "so chill" as "xochitl?" Probably not.
Harbaugh: "As you know, I only talk about the job that I have. We've been together a long time. Always been my policy."
Just asked Jim Harbaugh if he has been offered a contract by the University of Michigan. His answer...
Where's Gustavo when you need him? Two years ago Gustavo Ayon helped lead short-handed Bucks to victory in Sacramento.
Shootaround has been scratched for tmw.
Danny also shooting 42.1 pct on 3s with 7th most makes in the NBA. Such a valuable and, w/ shot blocking, unique role player.
In Rondo talks, Boston and Dallas discussing package including Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder and a first-round pick, sources tell Yahoo.
Seems to be some urgency on Boston's part to get a Rondo deal done - anyone acquired in trade needs 60 days before re-tradable in a package
I never feel more bare than when LinkedIn emails me to tell me “PEOPLE are LOOKING at your profile."
Have to say: Wilder-Stiverne is one of most anticipated heavyweight fights in a while. Big chance for Wilder; Americans craving a U.S. champ
Blocks not recorded until early 70s, of course. Have to guess at least Jerry West would have done that.
Danny Green having great season with 1.4 spg, 1.3 bpg. Only guards to ever do that are Wade, Jordan (twice) and Gervin.
Homeless “Joe” … has a new Bible.
Bogut agent: “Not gonna say 2, 3, 4 wks but that’s probably a reasonable assumption if all goes well & then he’ll return sometime in Jan.”
Rajon Rondo has been and always will be an all-time favorite with me, but he hasn't been the guy many think he still is for a while.
"CURSE WORD CURSE WORD CURSE WORD CURSE WORD" publish
Mo Williams not with team today for practice in Boston, went to get another opinion on his back, expected to rejoin by tomorrow

From everything I have heard, Cousins’ minutes will be limited for a few games while he works himself back into shape.

While we're on the subject: Spurs are a .500 team (10-10) over last two seasons without Kawhi Leonard in uniform.
Wickline's attorney David Beck insists OSU crossed line with letters. "At some point, we're going to have to fight over what they've done."
Should go without noting, but Chris Paul has played three more seasons and 191 more games than Westbrook.

Kobe on if he would extend contract if Lakers land star guys: "I don't know. Maybe. It's really just if I want to play."
Small ball will take on new meaning tonight in Sac-town. No Sanders, Parker, Ilyasova or Henson. Giannis a ? with left ankle sprain.
