Pleased to receive such a warm welcome from the Denver Nuggets. http://t.co/ChmoED69Px
J.J. Redick on Rondo trade: "It’s just another dynamic player on a very good team already, so it makes it more competitive for sure."
J.J. Redick: "You always have to wait and see, but Rondo’s figured it out. He’s 1 of the smartest players in the league and uber competitive
Chris Paul on Rajon Rondo trade: "It doesn’t mean anything until you see how a team plays."
Talked to Chris Paul about Rondo trade and he mentioned when Pau Gasol went to Lakers. Sure he remembers when Gasol nearly left too.
Haven't run into any Australians yet today, but it's still early.
The status of Kevin Durant on the other hand is up in the air. Durant is said to be a game-time decision.
Doc Gooden "Mr. Dwight on the windshield of your Z20 Camaro...w bunny rabbits painted on both sides. Oh, and the big fuzzy dice"
Clippers getting a look tonight at a player they should target in trade: Wilson Chandler.
Byron Scott jokes that he when he saw KD’s injury he hoped Durant would need to miss just one game: tonight’s in LA.
Hill showed up to practice facility today, saw trainer Gary Vitti, then went back home to bed.
Jordan Hill is expected to play tonight vs. OKC.
Jordan Hill (flu-like symptoms) not at shoot-around. Might/might not play tonight vs. OKC.
“… starring Seth Rogen and James Flacco.” Our hippest president yet.
Spencer Hawes did not travel w/ Clips to Denver. Doc said he won't need to practice before returning, in part b/c Clips don't practice.
Doc Rivers said he's not really worried about Rajon Rondo going to Mavs. Only focused on the Clippers.
Tough day to be a dog after you get snipped ✂️✂️ http://t.co/zCEjaqjQTd
Heisler gem: "ESPN is the standard for the New Ethics–none–as the biggest promoter in, and the biggest media conglomerate covering sports."
Nobody does the Platinum arrival gift quite like the JW Marriott Cherry Creek. http://t.co/QskRnryYqj
Shane, my hotel valet in Cherry Creek, is from Melbourne. You cannot make this stuff up, folks. Now all I need is Joe Ingles back w/ Clips.
I am giddier than Enrico Palazzo after his called third strike.
Wearing shorts outside in Denver. Smh. At myself.
The guy sitting next to me on my flight turned on his cell when we landed to learn he got into his dream college. What a cool moment.
Haha. Lost another follower. I guess he wasn't big on Australia.
One of my favorite guitarists, Steve Howe, did an entire solo album devoted to Australia. Unfortunately, he has a HORRIBLE voice.
Wow, I forgot to mention Gallipoli among my favorite Australian movies. Anything featuring Mel Gibson before he went nuts is must-watch.
Twitter has all sorts of uses. I just found a new one.
We had an incredible Australian man stay with us for a bit when I was 9. Brought me an Aussie flag and a stuffed wombat that I still have!
There are still some final details to work thru, but the ordeal is over, though not soon forgotten. Kemp will be a Pad. Rollins a Dodger.
My favorite Australian movies: Malcolm, The Castle, Heaven's Burning (though I learned today it had a different title in Australia).
Dodgers deal w/ Pads on Kemp is gonna go through. They didn't have to give up anything extra, after that ordeal
Met the most amazing, friendly guy from Melbourne on my flight to Denver. What is it about Australians that makes me wish I lived there?
I feel like becoming a vegan. Has anyone done it?
Is it possible to root for a tie between Adam Silver and Michele Roberts? I like them both.
The Mavericks' potential starting lineup pending the Rajon Rondo trade. http://t.co/DJ0Ll0Jsr5
Guess Rondo didn't like breakfast.
Cuban really course corrected after 2012, going all in for DWill and Dwight, but rebounding well w/ Calderon & Monta and now Parsons/Rondo
Mavericks followed Rajon Rondo on Twitter this morning before the trade occurred, so isn’t that considered tampering? I want to see the DMs.
2012, remember, Lakers got Dwight & Nash and went $30mil into luxury tax while Mavs let Tyson leave as free agent to save $
Rondo would go to Dallas for Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder, Jameer Nelson and a future first- and second-round draft pick.
In 2012 I wrote a column comparing the way the Lakers were giving Kobe a chance to win in his last few years vs Mavs & Dirk
Wonder if Kobe and Rondo will have breakfast in Dallas prior to that Dec. 26 Lakers/Mavs showdown? Leftover ham, perhaps?
Lakers were willing to part with the first round pick they got from Houston for Rondo. Boston wanted Lakers own first, which could be top 5
Welp. You can end the Rondo-To-Lakers talk. He’s headed to Dallas. Seriously doubt he’ll leave in free agency. Muck like K-Love in CLE.
I’m waiting for a story where a source says their team has “zero interest" in Durant when he becomes a free agent. AK
Asked to assess Mark Madsen's performance in Lakers' scrimmage today, Nick Young wisely said, "Mad Dog will bring that dog."
Kobe on practicing today: "My body allowed me to." Often needs the practice days to recover.
