NBA referee Dick Bavetta will retire having worked 2,635 consecutive regular-season games, having never called in sick once.

What's wrong with this picture? http://t.co/1NXAWILDAD
A Centennial kid asked Scott who would start for him: "Other than Kobe, it's up for grabs."
Byron Scott to Centennial's 9th and 10th grade males: "You have a better opportunity to be the next (President) Obama than the next LeBron."
2/2: Scott told them they'd be lucky if 1 only kid made it to the pros. His very pointed emphasis: you must focus on your degree/education.
1/2: Byron Scott asked the Centennial High kids in the auditorium how many thought they'd be pro athletes. Something like 50 hands shot up.
Scott went to Inglewood's Morningside High (6 miles from Centennial) but his principal from Morningside, Jesse Jones, is at Centennial.
Byron Scott's being here at Compton's Centennial High is connected in part with President Obama's "My Brother's Keeper" initiative.
I’ve always liked Brandon Jennings.
What keeps me sane...

You can also reach Steve Ballmer at firstname.lastname@example.org. He said he responds to as many emails as he can.
Rest of Scott's staff still being finalized, should be done soon. You've heard the rest of the names.
Ballmer: "Seattle is a town that deserves an NBA team...but the L.A. in L.A. Clippers is not changing."
Lakers expected to add well-respected assistant Jim Eyen to Byron Scott's staff, sources tell ESPN. He was last w/ Kings.
Doc on Clippers name change: "I look at it as a name of survival. We've gone through a lot of stuff not just recently but for a long time."
Ballmer said he'll be sitting courtside. "I like to sit near the action." He was debating with players and coaches where best seat is.
Ballmer doesn't seem interested in changing the name of the Clippers.
Ballmer: "The Clippers are the hottest brand in basketball right now."
Rivers: "Without (Shelly Sterling) this deal does not get done. She wants to be a fan. What's bad about that?"
Doc puts his iPhone away when talking about technology with Ballmer.
Doc Rivers "Sometimes you have to take a stand. I didn't think I would end up having to, but a lot of us were willing to"
Steve Ballmer: "I’ll probably go to some away games but focus to try to get to as many home games as I can and still be a good dad."
Where will Steve Ballmer sit during games? "I’m a court dude, not a suite dude." Never could have guessed after that intro.
The best friend of writers covering Steve Ballmer? CAPS LOCK.
Ballmer: "I will boldly say the Clippers will win many, many, many, many more Larrys in the next 26 than the past 26."
Ballmer: "The Clippers will win many, many more Larrys (Larry O'Brien trophy) in the next 26 than in the last 26 years."
Pretty sure Ballmer doesnt need that microphone.
Ballmer ends his speech by urging fans to yell one more time: "I LOVE LARRY!"
Steve Ballmer: "I lOVE ..." Fans: "LARRY!'
Ballmer: "My name is Steve. Mr. Ballmer is my father."
Steve Ballmer announces his new e-mail: email@example.com

Steve Ballmer: "We’re going to be hard-core. HARD-CORE! HARD-CORE!"
Ballmer: "We're going to be hardcore!"
