HoopsHype NBA Media twitter
Michael Beasley: "I'm blessed and humbled."
I suppose my rant is coming to an end (you’re welcome), but the bottom line is: if that happens, the overall product for the fan is ruined.
9.I advise players from high school, college, NBA, and Europe to chase great situations, not rings. Bulls/Mavs situation now shows why.
If the NBA can operate with its own people producing all content, and fans don’t see a difference, it will absolutely kill availability.
Dunleavy: "It’s a professional-minded group. I really have no concerns about us getting through it in terms of things totally unraveling."
8. The next time France plays Team USA, Rudy Gobert could be the reason why the French are celebrating at games end. The new face of France.
Kings guard Darren Collison (hip flexor) will be re-evaluated in 3-to-6 weeks after hip surgery & his season is likely over, a source said.
These llamas are out here hitting L2 and R2 on their Playstation controllers, and I'm here for it.
7. I feel badly for John Wall, as injuries have sapped Wiz of wing talent. His spirit has ebbed away with that. He has MVP talent for sure.
So from a strictly business decision *which all these matters come down to* what keeps the media operating as is? Fans who demand it.
Watson rolled his ankle; Miles has a sore foot and did not practice. Vogel hopeful they'll be available tomorrow vs Cleveland.
We've simulated the result of Michael Beasley drinking "Snake Juice" http://t.co/UwhkXF0Nob
Kings guard Darren Collison (hip flexor) will see Dr. William Myers on Monday in Philly & then have surgery there Tuesday, source told Yahoo
Ultimately, leagues don’t OWE anything to media, and they are getting closer to being able to fully exist without media. (cont. 3/3)
He said, :"They ought to call us waiters." Me: Why is that? He: "Because we are always waiting...for someone we want to talk to."
5. KG coached more last night than any assistant coach or player I HAVE EVER SEEN. Wolves have 2 projects at that spot, Payne and Bennett.
What about Bleacher Report, owned by Tuner Sports, with strong direct ties to the NBA. What’s controlled there? Fans don’t know. (2/3 cont.)
Llamas crossing the road. NBD. http://t.co/mvdAwzHJuR
4. As for 76ers, I totally get the plan. But what if every bad team took that route? So many fans would be lost, no team to follow.
On Big East Rookie of the Year, I expect that to be close between SHU's Angel Delgado & Georgetown's Isaac Copeland. Bluiett also gets votes
Andrew Wiggins winning ROY, Kyle Wiltjer and Kevin Pangos rolling with Gonzaga and now Sim Bhullar on The Late Show. Canada is taking over.
Leagues already looking to control the message: NFL Network, MLB Network, NBA Network… now you understand ethics/conflict of interest.
Boban Marjanovic is doing great so far vs Ayon (7pts, 6 rebs and 14 rkg in 5')! Dinosaur's rules!
Regarding Michele Roberts quote about media: I said hello to a famous TV sports media personality after a game one night. next tweet pt 2.
3. Following MCW w the Bucks will be fun, and insightful. If he learns to shoot like his coach, who was once a horrible shooter...
PG still putting up shots after taking part in Pacers practice today. http://t.co/PQR4739N00
2. Any 1 on 1 tournament, make it take it, globally, as to seed Zbo #1 overall. I just don't see him missing more than once, and others will
(cont) … so yes, is it crazy to think they might eventually want to choose Item 1? That’s what’s scary. Fans/customers have final say.
Option 1: WE control all the messages and what is shown through OUR quality storytelling. Option 2: Cater to some randoms to write whatever
And you can absolutely BET that pro sports leagues have had serious conversations on whether or not they even need traditional media anymore
Steph Curry said relationship with LeBron is "cordial... He was a guy who, when I was in college, made an effort to reach out."
Lakers to wear their "Los Lakers" jerseys on March 4 in Miami & March 8 vs. Dallas in Staples Center
Media, obviously, is very, very good for the fans. But what happens if athletes/leagues want to control the message? Would fans care?
Regarding analytics and ex-players: Kevin McHale coaches the Rockets. He was hired by Daryl Morey.
Darrell Arthur's knee strain is revised to a calf strain and he is doubtful for tomorrow's game vs. Utah.
Steph Curry on higher profile:"My life off the court when it comes to how I handle things is exactly the same. That's how I want 2 keep it."
…they might as well be arguing the same thing. Instead of screaming about things that are beyond the point.
Vogel says there's no timetable, but he's hopeful that Paul will play this season. PG participated in all of practice for the first time.
Ian Vougioukas has signed with German club Ratiopharm Ulm. Contract value is $55,000 for the season, a source said.
Where do I punch in for the bimonthly stats vs. eye test argument that pretends the two are mutually exclusive?
Riley was like, "Take a picture, or no one will believe it." http://t.co/5Wg9O9ZxZY
Beasley genuinely excited about this possibility. Said he understood no room for him with Deng, McRoberts and Granger in offseason.
Add another Walker name to Bill, Billy, Henry, Hank. Beasley said he calls his ex-Kansas State teammate "Bill-iam." Walker calls him Paul.
Beasley said while in China he drank "snake juice" and also ate horse and lizard. Said horse tasted good, but was tricked into eating it.
Jose Calderon still in boot here at practice and being called doubtful.
Today, LeBron did not specifically address "scholarship offers" to son LeBron Jr.. Here was his reply to question: http://t.co/chjrKYaAnD
Beasley said he is living in the same apartment he lived in last season and has living in Miami since he was drafted in 2008.
Paul George taking part in practice today. Will talk with media soon http://t.co/zWda7Urvak
For Deron Williams you could go back to Dec. 5 and it's 9.3 points, 6.4 assists, 31.7 percent shooting (29 3s). Does look better since ASB.
The genius person on this yearslong run inventing Korean-vibe, avant-garde bodega sandwiches at Sunny and Annie on Ave B my only role model
Several options: NFL can appeal, send it back to arbitrator for review under old personal conduct policy, reinstate Adrian. We'll see
Michael Beasley averaged 27.1 points, 10.4 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.92 steals in China while shooting 51.3 percent from the floor.
Michael Beasley came off the bench in the Chinese All-Star Game to score 59 points.
Klay Thompson today on nearly getting traded in summer for his little league teammate Kevin Love: "Crazy, right? Small world. Small world."
Just wake me up when she's done spitting fire in all directions as a way to get off to a good start with her superstar constituents.
Michele Roberts obviously is missing the point. Which is incredibly scary considering the current media vs. player strife.
There's no way that there's anything on tape anywhere involving Dez that could be more shocking than that low ball poop fart contract offer
I've always said owners can try to go where they want. But if they're blocked, I'm not going to pretend they're not blocked.
San Jose people are trying to tell me the Giants shouldn't have territorial rights. That's not the point. MLB and the courts say they do.
Everyone says the fat KG fan was re-enacting something from a decade ago. Anyone have the OG clip?
Whether Michele Roberts or anyone else,the scorched earth approach has a short shelf-life. You have to be measured, respectful at some point
Pat Beverley (flu symptoms) practiced with the Rockets on Thursday. Was more of a walk-through and shooting practice so he was not tested.
The Warriors: no. 1 in pace, no. 1 in points allowed per possession, hopefully quieting the notion that the two cannot co-exist.
Yes that is... http://t.co/oUEtyxky30
Hard to see how Harold Henderson wouldn't take Doty's ruling into account if/when it goes back to him. Would he just say, "Nah"?
Going with Walker and Beasley also could keep Heat under the tax.
I'm thrilled to see David Blu - a dear friend & all time elite European shooter - get the honor. Maccabi HOF inductee.
With Bosh and McRoberts out, Beasley will be active and in uniform Friday against the Pelicans.
Gal Mekel - DNP vs Milan - traveled from Florida to NY to Moscow to Nizhny. He was drained, team lost.
Ms Roberts, who rudely referred / commish as "Silver" in espn piece, will find out media is not easy target. She's now daily target practice
Turned on my TV, in time to hear Skip Bayless call Tony Parker the "worst point guard in the NBA." So this is why I don't watch this show.
On trolly tour in SD. At famous dog park. Driver says, "Oh no! Someone left the gate open!" *Gasps* Then, he plays "Who let the dogs out?!"
Imagine the future: you can watch an an entire NBA game through the eyes of your favorite player. That would be so awesome.
One would think the ignorant, condescending Ms Roberts could find more suitable place of business than locker room, a media business place
Big Brother 32: Michael Beasley & college teammate (former Bill Walker) battle to see who, in 10 days, stays in house. Whiteside decides.
As Will Manso noted,Beasley 1st Heat player to have 3 different stints with team.Has become Heat's version of ex-Fin Ray Feinga,only better
Carter, a 6-1 pg, will visit Xavier and then MU. UConn, Miss., Memphis, Temple also in mix.
I absolutely recommend that everyone leans in and takes a strong look at tech opportunities. I truly believe those who don’t will regret it.
MU coach Steve Wojciechowski expected to visit today with NJ prep standout Traci Carter.
Hang in there. Still waiting for practice to end — and to talk with PG.
Since working on Staance, I’ve learned so much about where tech is headed and how users truly interact. I don’t think I could ever look back
There’s a chance the Internet as we know it no longer exists in 10 years. Tech is growing so rapidly. Old business will change drastically.
The energy in San Francisco and the Silicon Valley is being matched throughout the country by our generation. So many changes are coming.
Second half was 👏👏👏 http://t.co/2Ru6Fehxv7
Not sure how many games the Heat win from here, but there's plenty of reality show potential.
It’s not a laziness to not work either; it’s about working toward something big and not dying to move up some form of backward hierarchy.
I know there are still 6am-10pm finance folks, but a many from this generation are more interested in their own project than someone else’s.
I’m incredibly impressed with my generation. For decades, “the man” (older guys in business) pushed down on the 25-40 gen. Not now.
Samardo Samuels had 36 points with 14-for-16 from two points, 9 rebounds, 1 assists, 12 fouls drawn and 47 of evaluation in Milano’s win
Thinking back to last night...Spoelstra walking off court in first half muttering to himself...walked in locker room..."Do it. Sign him."
Around 25-30 media members here in the practice court hallway waiting to hear what PG has to say.
Missing the Sloan Conference for the first time in (I think) 5 years. Have fun in the snow, everyone!
Michael Beasley and Hassan Whiteside were both on the Memphis Grizzlies training camp roster last September.
OK, next time I'll defer to "Ask Ira" readers when deciding who the Heat might sign. I'm assuming you want Harold Miner next?
The doc gets deep about 50 minutes in, when Kobe opens up about 2004 & what that time did to his family. No specific references; none needed
The draft pick that Pat Riley made reluctantly now has more separate Heat stints than player in the franchise's history. Desperate times...
If all Hawks fans have to worry about is Pero Antic, the team is in very good shape.
The question is not what can Nate Robinson do that Aaron Brooks can't. It is, what can he do that Kirk Hinrich can't?
Pat Riley is George Steinbrenner.... and Michael Beasley is Billy Martin.
If PG doesn’t announce he’s either returning or shutting it down, then he better have cured cancer. People will revolt.
In China, Michael Beasley averaged 27.1 points (51.3 FG%), 10.4 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.9 steals in 37 games. We'll see if he helps Miami.
What's wrong with the Spurs? 1. It's February 2. It's February 3. It's February 4. It's February 5. It's February 6. It's February
Here's a stunner: Heat announce they have signed Michael Beasley to a 10-day contract.
Pittsburgh will watch 2016 Vermont Academy PF Tyrique Jones today
Greatest players in Heat history: 1. Zo, 2. Wade, 3. Haslem, 4. Beasley, 5. Bosh, 6. Voshon Lenard.
BTW: Khris Middleton ranks 6th in plus-minus, 1 spot behind LeBron, 1 spot ahead of John Wall. Heady company.
Will being near the Wudang Mountains help unleash a Killer Beas?
"The sun went down when I hit Slauson ..."
Five dollars to the first reporter who asks Beasley a "maturity" question. How did China change you? How did you grow as a Beasley?
Interesting at-the-basket shot distribution comparison: Nurkic: 47.5% Len: 57.9% Adams: 60.1% McGary: 63.0% Plumlee: 74.3% Gobert: 81.6%
Somebody help me out on this... Dante Exum is 8-for-28 in his last five games with ZERO free throw attempts... Drive to the bucket Dante!
Beasley averaged 27 points and 10 rebounds in China this season. Has wanted to return to Heat since last summer. On 10 day contract.
NFLPA calls Doty's ruling in favor of Peterson "a victory for due process and fairness."
Appropriate headline size, via Heat PR. http://t.co/1tIMYUIzaG
CIN & Andy Dalton won 10 games last year. NO & Drew Brees won 7. Yet you'd be insane to take the guy with the better "record"
