I’m fairly certain the Ravens Communications Dept. and the NFL have engaged in a contest to see who can come across more tone deaf. AK
BBN, it's good to be back. I'll be at Wildcat Wearhouse in Fayette Mall from 7-8. Come out and see me
Everyone has been to Vegas this summer except for me. Thinking of pulling a Fear and Loathing road trip. I just need to find a Dr. Gonzo.
Cheers all around as new NBAPA Director Michele Roberts walks into the executive committee boardroom, after vote announced.
Dudley said he thought Mavs CEO Terdima Ussery would've won, but his ties to the league killed his chances
Dudley said only 2 teams didn't have player reps present at tonight's union mtg. He thought Roberts would win, but votes still being counted
Clippers player rep Jared Dudley said he voted for Michele Roberts. Thought she was smart, liked her presentation
Jerry Stackhouse says vote is being "rammed down our throats." Says Exec committee recommended Michele Roberts, but not sure they have votes
Final dispatch from Primm proper... http://t.co/Kc7JfHkjmT
Like we mentioned, Blake Griffin has been working out all summer. He'd hoped to play for Team USA but doctors advised extra rest
With Byron Scott the new Lakers head coach, I feel like giving away five shirts. Must be 18 to enter our contest. http://t.co/h1sI41vORc
Byron Scott after the Lakers won it all 1988. Loved the old caricature shirts. http://t.co/bSkEGMoX5H
The Lakers made the Byron Scott hiring official shortly after I posted that photo from Byron, Nev. Just sayin.
Griffin suffered the previously unreported injury during the playoffs. He's expected to make a full recovery, but not in time for USA camp
Scott:"I will give everything I have to fulfill the championship expectations that our supporters have for us & that we have for ourselves."
Byron Scott: "I know firsthand what it takes to bring a championship to this city."
Mitch: "After an extensive and thorough search, we’re proud to welcome Byron back to the Lakers family as our next head coach."
Scott: "I am ecstatic to once again be a Laker and to have the opportunity to work alongside Mitch and the Buss family."
Lakers officially announce Byron Scott as their head coach. Press conference tomorrow at 11:00 a.m.
Per the Lakers, Byron is now officially the head coach. AK
The Lakers officially make Byron Scott the 25th coach in franchise history. Press conference tomorrow http://t.co/tX3W9daCyl
Scott was the 2007-2008 NBA COY & has led his teams to the postseason 4 times, including B2B Finals appearances with NJN in 2002 and 2003.
Scott: "I'll give everything I have to fulfill the championship expectations that our supporters have for us, & that we have for ourselves.”
Johnny Davis might also be an assistant coach. Davis would be a holdover from D'Antoni's staff. He has one more year on his contract.
Scott cont'd "... of my career here, I know how passionate and dedicated our fans are."
Scott: "I know firsthand what it takes to bring a championship to this city, & as someone who both grew up in L.A. and played the majority..
Byron Scott: “I am ecstatic to once again be a Laker and to have the opportunity to work alongside Mitch and the Buss family."
Byron: "I will give everything I have to fulfill the championship expectations that our supporters have for us and we have for ourselves."
Kupchak cont'd: "(Scott's) leadership skills and track record for success make him the ideal person to lead this franchise forward."
Byron Scott's staff taking shape soon. Possibilities: Paul Pressey, Mark Madsen and...Robert Horry. Lakers recently contacted Horry about it
Kupchak: "Byron has proven himself at the highest levels of the game as both a player and a coach in his almost 30 years of NBA experience."
Mitch Kupchak on Byron Scott: "His leadership skills and track record for success make him the ideal person to lead this franchise forward."
GM Mitch Kupchak: "After an extensive and thorough search, we’re proud to welcome Byron back to the Lakers family as our next head coach."
It's official: Lakers have a signed contract from their new coach, Byron Scott. News conference will be Tuesday morning at 11 a.m.
Donald's side believes he owns corporate shares of the Clips and thus, Shelly cannot sell them. Expect her side to force action to resolve
Donald's lawyer says they are weighing an injunction in the corporate case and will file a writ in 10 days, appealing judges ruling today
Donald Sterling's lawyer Bobby Samini said he talked to Donald after today's ruling. His reaction: "Keep fighting!"
Worst part of Donald's case was that Shelly had an "obligation as a wife." They were in court because of things Donald said to his mistress.
Donald's witnesses didn't help his case at all. He only called two, both from Vegas and both failed to make his case or move the needle.
NBA statement on Sterling decision. http://t.co/1FdBDdujGv
And with the Sterling probate court decision, it appears Byron and Doc will in fact NOT serve as co-Laker head coaches. AK
Donald's lawyer said he was calm. He only saw this as one battle in a long war.
Steve Ballmer's lawyer said Steve will keep the team in L.A. The team name will also stick for the foreseeable future.
Shelly Sterling and Steve Ballmer's lawyers said they expect the sale of the Clippers to go through by Aug. 15.
Shelly said she expects Donald's ban will one day be lifted and he'll be able to attend games again.
Shelly Sterling addressing the media. http://t.co/ntbuDVBBmN
Max Blecher: "It goes without saying I'm disappointed."
Lots of hugs and handshakes between Shelly Sterling's lawyers outside the courtroom.
Shelly Sterling is crying. "I'm just happy it's over. A great man will be taking over the team now."
We're done for the day. Shelly Sterling wins the day and maybe Steve Ballmer gets the Clippers.
The judge has been talking for 30 minutes and it's all positive for Shelly Sterling's side.
The risk of harm is no speculative says the judge because of the testimonies from Shelly's side, including Dick Parsons.
The judge does order 1310b. This is huge. Shelly in a clean sweep.
Judge believes if NBA takes team and sells it at auction it would not go for as much because of the pending lawsuit.
Judge said Dean Bonham, Donald's witness who said he was Nuggets president (he was not) was not credible.
Judge said the Clippers are owned by the Sterling family trust and Shelly had every right to sell the team.
Donald's side had said 1310b was only for life and death cases, judge says that's not true.
Judge sounds inclined to grant 1310b He's talking but it's been a clean sweep for Shelly so far.
Now to the big one.... 1310b regarding appeals.
