Count your blessing man, I love this place it's so much REAL love here amazing so happy to touch so many people.
I'm so touched
Crazy to think the Rockets are giving the Warriors more of a run than the top-seeded Hawks are against the Cavs. HOU may steal a game or 2.
Warriors/Cavs NBA Finals inevitable at this point?? Can we just skip the rest of the WCF/ECF and get to the real matchup?
The Dodgers completed a minor league trade with the White Sox today, acquiring pitcher Eric Surkamp in exchange for pitcher Blake Smith.
Pre-draft workouts for Lakers will be held on Tues & Thurs at team’s practice facility in El Segundo. Uncertain which players will attend.
Kobe cont'd: "After three years of dealing with this crap, I kind of understand that I don’t want to deal with that anymore.”
More Kobe from March: “If I feel like playing, if I feel like doing the process again, do I enjoy getting up and training every single day?
What Kobe told LA media last March: “As I sit here right now, do I want to play beyond next year? No, but that could change,” he said.
Seriously doubt Kobe will make anything set in stone in terms of his retirement before next summer. Too much can happen between now & then.
Nothing new on Kobe retirement. He's long implied this - his 20th season - will be his last. We may not know for sure until end of 2015-16.
Regarding Kobe, working premise has consistently been that upcoming season will be his last. But it's impossible to know for sure now.
I'm sure the picture of Nick Young and Jordan Hill rocking him back and forth in a giant rocking chair is a lasting image he can do without.
I doubt we hear anything official from Kobe until he does retire. He has said he doesn't want a Kareem farewell tour. http://t.co/wcyppMuOtB
2. Mitch has been saying things to signal the end of the Kobe era since Dwight left.
Two thoughts on Kupchak's statement about this being Kobe's last year. 1. That's not for Mitch to say. Until Kobe says it, it's open ended
Iguodala on Harden: "We've got to clean it up. Off the pick and rolls, he was the aggressor. ... We have to stop him from going downhill."
Kerr springing Iguodala on Harden to adjust in Houston would be the kind of thing I'd expect from Phil or Pop.
Seeing Steph pucker up all big to give Riley a kiss in the hallway was pretty cute, though.
Steph's dad, Dell Curry, holding Riley in his arms his postgame. No podium time for her tonight.
This could end up the most exciting five game series in history. BK
You can hear my four-year old daughter in the background. Why was James Harden not thinking of her??? AK http://t.co/ZGL9zHxLu1
Bynum would have launched the three. BK
Why did Harden give up the ball?
The Trap Brothers...
As long as we're trying to eliminate the "Talk about..." questions, can we also get rid of "If I'm ______..." as a broadcasting crutch? BK
Curry has played well enough to get away with sending in his daughter and skipping the postgame podium altogether. AK
I can't stop thinking that OKC traded Harden. He wanted to stay. Durant, Russ and Harden, all in their early 20's. Huge mistake.
Harden doing everything for Rockets, even picking up game-plan paper that McHale dropped on the sideline between quarters.
Holy crap, Harden is good. BK
FINAL: Ducks 2, Blackhawks 1. The Ducks have reclaimed home ice advantage. http://t.co/2jQg3F1x9a
Warriors playing that beautiful game...
Lakers will be fine if the land Jahlil Okafor, but they’ll gem with Karl-Anthony Towns. Starting grow on me after seeing a lot more footage.
No shot wasted. No drill half assed. Complete focus. Work on difficult moments. Always in silence. Reason the greats are the great.
Watching Kobe & Ray Allen go thru their routine in an empty arena 3 hours before a game is still one of the coolest things I've witnessed
Very cool ESPN showing Steph Curry warm up routine. To me Ray Allen's was the best. He'd show up super early and have an empty court.
