Josh Shaw's lawyer said he "fell off a balcony." Going to go out on a limb that you don't retain legal counsel if that's all that happened.
The Yankees have gotten nine straight hits? Cool. WAIT, against David Price?!?!
Shaw: "On Saturday I injured myself in a fall. I made up a lie about this fall that was untrue. I was wrong to not tell the truth."
Sarkisian: "We are extremely disappointed in Josh. He let us all down. As I have said, nothing in his background led us to doubt him."
Sarkisian: "I appreciate that Josh has now admitted that he lied and has apologized. ... it is unacceptable."
Sarkisian said that Shaw has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities. Shaw has retained Donald Etra as legal counsel.
Shaw said that the story he told of rescuing his nephew in a pool in Palmdale was a complete fabrication. He apologized for misleading.
Josh Shaw came to USC athletic department officials and admitted that he had lied about how he suffered his ankle injuries over the weekend.
At the very least, the discussion might prompt some to more carefully consider conditions when reclining. Poor Hasheem.
Thrilled airplane seats are becoming a hot button issue. Nothing worse than trying to use bulky work laptop with tray shoved into my groin
Projections, or goals, as some people like to call them is a necessity.
Tomorrow will shake up the game
If Clippers are going to waive and stretch Carlos Delfino's salary, they must do so soon--deadline is Sept. 1.
Jamal Crawford on Doc Rivers' new contract: "Knowing you have that kind of leadership in place for awhile helps put everyone at ease."
Sarkisian said he has kicked the Shaw investigation to campus authorities. Not sure how much sense that makes but none of this makes sense.
Sarkisian only addressed reporters for 5 minutes and only spent 3 minutes on Shaw before ending press conference. Nothing new.
None of the media is watching USC practice today. Just waiting for Steve Sarkisian. http://t.co/WNAAPOrywg
These NBA team accounts are clogging up the Twitterverse with all sorts of junk these days. Bring on the season.
Don't have terms yet, but safe to assume Doc Rivers is getting a raise from the $7-million per year he was owed next 2 seasons.
Doc Rivers contract is not an extension; it's a completely new deal with new terms.
Clippers announce Doc Rivers has agreed to contract extension through 2019 season.
Doc Rivers has agreed to a contract extension with the Clippers through the end of the 2019 season. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Obviously, Greinke and Ryu also have to be healthy, but that kinda goes without saying. AK
If Hernandez can consistently replicate something along the lines of tonight, that'll round out a fairly strong playoff rotation. AK

We've reached the point in this game/Arizona's season where anyone in Phoenix can be heard whistling on TV if they want. BK
Harlem showed love. Best summer of my life so far
The Rucker was love man.
Sarkisian calls Shaw situation an "external distraction." Maybe but it was created internally.
Steve Sarkisian just said on his weekly show that they are still gathering information on Shaw situation. "We don't know all the facts yet."
Where in the world am I? http://t.co/LOpbbjUSPS
I get the sense we're going to get a lot of answers to our Shaw questions tomorrow. USC created this mess but they won't let it linger.
Last year's Clippers trade now breaks down as Eric Bledsoe, Caron Butler & 1st rounder for JJ Redick, Carlos Delfino & Miroslav Raduljica.
Point is the story came from USC. Could have easily said he was injured and refused to say how.
This was a USC created mess. They released initial story with quotes. If they announced Shaw was injured working out, no one would care.
Doc: "Jared is a true professional and we wish him all the best in Milwaukee."
Doc: "Jared is a great teammate, I thank him for all his hard work on and off the floor on our behalf."
Clippers make it official. They get Carlos Delfino, Miroslav Raduljica and a 2015 2nd rd pick for Dudley and a protected 2017 first rd pick.
Hasheem Thabeet will be traded and waived by the 76ers. I’m not quite sure who the better player is between him and Robert Sacre.
Writing was on the wall for Clippers' Jared Dudley when he averaged only 1.3 points in 6.4 minutes per playoff game.
Shaw is one of the most respected players on the team. As skeptical as some were of the story the first reaction was just to take his word.
USC official said they "vetted" Shaw's story before releasing it last night. Apparently not enough as the vetting continues.
