Bulls beat the Mavs in Dallas. People keep waiting for Chicago to disintegrate. Reason it hasn't happened? Thibs!
So Hamlin edges out Harvick for the last of 12 advancing spots in qualifying. Ironically, Hamlin had early tagged Harvick as clearly fastest
Five minutes left in first round of "knockout" qualifying. No one on the track. Yup, sure amped up the excitement.
Let's just say this "knockout" format is a work-in-progress. Some drivers taking a Sunday stroll to cool engines.
Justin Allgaier becomes first driver to hit the wall in this new "knockout" qualifying. Took no time at all.
Larry Brown on HBO: Coaching Allen Iverson was the "most challenging thing that's ever happened to me in my life."
Denny Hamlin says Kevin Harvick's No. 4 Chevy clearly looked like car to beat in first practice at Phoenix.
Tony Stewart sick of all the questions about his health: "I'm not 100 percent. I'm not going to be 100 percent for a while."
“Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” 1 Corinthians 13:7
So happy for Will! One of the best teammates I've ever had. That dude just loves to compete and win!
Forty minutes of Hell back from the grave. Kentucky goes down at home.
Wondered why the sports bars next to my hotel were dominated by hockey games. Oh! Hotel also next to Coyotes' arena (doink!)
Programming alert: Kentucky-Arkansas in OT
2. After years of losses, Bobcats made $7 million last season. If so, then Fred Whitfield and Pete Guelli better have gotten raises.
1. One out of every two basketball shoes sold in the U.S. are Jordan Brand (Cha-Ching).
Two interesting nuggets from Forbes story on Bobcats owner Michael Jordan (more)....
If the Bulls are going to sign Fredette, I wonder if there's much incentive for Ben Gordon to accept a buyout.
NY Post headline writers having way too much fun with Felton gun charges. Today asked if "Knicks still packing Heat" vs. Miami tonight.
Any job can be turned into worship when it is built on the model of Christs love; that love is expressed 2 co-workers, clients, & customers.
Tonight illustrated odd dynamic in Charlotte regarding the NBA: Some loud, proud believers and some people surprised to hear there's a team.
When TNT makes us watch both NYC teams tomorrow, is it rubbernecking along the highway?
Recently mentioned the Hollinger formula suggests Bobcats a 90 percent lock to make playoffs. Again, that doesn't pass sniff test.
Pistons lose another. Looks like Bobcats' threat might be Cavs. So guess it'd be helpful if Irving and Waiters get into a new food fight.
Cavs going to win at OKC. Big win for Dysfunction Junction.
If Doc Rivers ever wins a title with Clippers he should kiss Sterling like Fredo in New Year's scene in Godfather II and retire. Just sayin.
In an odd, organic way, Chris Paul's injury might help the Clippers long-term. Blake Griffin was forced to learn the game more.
Portland would not have home court in 1st round if playoffs started today. They'd be a contender to win the East.
I didn't deal with Jordan Gross a lot, but when I did he was always helpful, savvy and articulate. A great guy.
Steve Clifford didn't like this break until he had two new players to blend in. Now he sees it as a benefit.
Some of you have asked why Bobcats go 5 days between games. Arena tied up with CIAA tournament. Beyond that just random.
I wasn't at Bobcats practice today, but told they scrimmaged a lot since they go 5 days between games.
One more Al Jefferson nugget: Since Jan. 11, he and Kevin Love only NBA players averaging at least 25 points and 10 rebounds.
Al Jefferson 1 of 5 NBA players averaging 20-10. Others: Kevin Love, LaMarcus Aldridge, DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis.
never seen more traffic in the am in Charlotte ever!!!
As believers we r Christs representatives in the earth. We r called 2 a higher standard. The way we live our lives should bring glory 2 God.
the only certainty is change
Raymond Felton arrested on multiple gun charges in Manhattan.
My point: If Vegas told me there was a 90 percent chance the Bobcats would make the playoffs, I'd bet and bet and bet. You would, too.
Anyone who thinks Michigan-VCU doesn't get dramatically more interesting with a 28-second shot clock doesn't get the game.
I gently suggested tonight that a shorter college shot clock might even the playing field .Stunned the reaction was that's not so.
The sad thing about the absurdly long shot clock in college is how much it favors the big schools. Protective service.
The college shot clock is longer than a Daytona rain delay.
Cuse-Terps. Good ending.
Silliest things in any NBA season are November scores and two-game trends.
Nov. 3. 2013: Philadelphia 76ers are the scary, sexy out-of-nowhere NBA revelation. Late February: Getting drilled by the Bucks.
That Ennis kid. Clearly Canadians have no future in basketball.
NFL Network says Clowney is fast. S.C. Highway Patrol says, "We knew that."
More than a bit ironic this season the 1st Bobcat named East player of the week not Big Al.
For the applicable four games -- all victories -- Kemba averaged 22.5 points and 8.8 assists.
Kemba Walker named Eastern Conference Player of the Week.
Ben Gordon at Bobcats practice, so obviously no buyout yet. (And, no, I have no sense whether it happens.)
We have 2 extend grace 2 each other, because forgiveness is a two way street. You cannot receive what u are unwilling 2 give 2 other people.
Romans 3:10 says, “There is no one who always does what is right, not even one.”
Good morning people! Hope every one get the best of today! Yesterday drove 5h to suprise my brothers for a visit http://t.co/mHTxEvSFNJ
Steph Curry, All-Star starter. Dale, Jr., Daytona 500 winner. Charlotte Bobcats, playoff team? These things always come in 3s.
True Detectives actually getting better.
You, Me, and Dupree is such an underrated movie! Dupree might be my favorite character of all time!
Actually, my theory is people only watch the NFL Combine for the commercials.
OK, I just watched 47 seconds of the NFL Combine. That was quite sufficient.
“May the patience and encouragement that come from God allow you to live in harmony with each other the way Christ Jesus wants” Romans 15:5
Big East guy: Sad there is no landing spot for UConn, Villanova and Georgetown. A great book there about squandered opportunity.
Your 6th-place Charlotte Bobcats.
1:02 from being 6th in the East.
Bobcats are 2 1/2 minutes from being in sixth place in the East.
Any more great Boeheim photoshops? How can a bald, bespectacled Syracuse grad not love him. But those images were hilarious.
Says everything about disparity between conferences if Bobcats make playoffs and Grizzlies don't. Not a chance Memphis is outside top 16.
The Boeheim photoshops are hilarious.
How about those gutsy, poised Knicks: Lose to an Orlando team in the deep-freeze and a Hawks team with 3 healthy players.
Grizzlies get two good looks from 3, miss both. FINAL: Bobcats 92, Grizzlies 89. Terrific game. Charlotte on a four-game winning streak.
Gasol layup. Kemba heading to the line with 10 seconds left up one. Make and make.
If Bobcats hold on, they will have beaten a really good, very well-coached group.
Kemba jukes Conley into a foul. 24 seconds left. Kemba at line up one. Make (barely) and make. Grizzlies timeout.
McRoberts at the line. Make and make.
Conley jumper gives Memphis the lead. 44 seconds left.
Kemba telegraphed a pass. Tony Allen converts. Bobcats lead by 1, 1:25 left.
