Just high level ball movement on both sides in Clipps-Spurs. Great to watch. And Duncan wants no part of 0-2
STOP THE FIGHT!!!!

Ch. 11 look behind scenes with the Wild at 5 pm reminds me of dumbest tradition in pro sports: Don't walk on team logo in dressing room
Chess time 😏👌🏻
Will be interesting to watch this Hawks sale unfold. Ressler-Grant Hill pairing could be a good indicator of how KG would take over Wolves
I wouldn't bet on Scott Brooks being the guy that prompts Flip to walk away from coaching
For Wolves fans asking about OKC's firing of Scott Brooks: I don't see him being on Flip's very short list that'd get hiim to walk away now

If the Rockets get this Josh Smith all the time, they are gonna be a tough out.

8 seconds. Good lord Mavs. Get it together.

K-LOVE REVERSE DUNK WHAT!
Admittedly it's still very early, but don't be surprised if you hear the name Kristaps Porzingis more & more for Wolves as draft approaches
It's April 21 and it's snowing outside my window. What's with this horse hockey?

Got a statement from Pelinka about Tyus: http://t.co/tOANYr5l54
Coach of Year voting after Budenholzer-Kerr: 3. Kidd, 4. Stevens, 5. Popovich, 6. McHale, 7. Thibs, 8. Quin Snyder, etc. No votes for Flip
Correcting Pop's place: Just FYI: Budenholzer got 67 first-place votes, Kerr got 56 and fifth-place Pop was next in 1st-place votes w/ 3
I'm a little late to the game, but...Atlanta's Mike Budenholzer today wins NBA Coach of the Year by half a length over Steve Kerr
Back to Tyus going w/ Pelinka: says a lot when you're able to choose among Pelinka, Tellem, Bartelstein, & Duffy. All big NBA power brokers.
Source says Tyus Jones is expected to sign w/ agent Rob Pelinka. He reps Kobe, Harden, etc. Tyus took pitches from many big-time agents.
Budenholzer was thrust into a power position on a franchise in turmoil and took the Hawks to top of the East. Great story.
As is the case w/many awards in NBA this year, there is more than one right answer. Thought Budenholzerr was very deserving of coach of year
Teams showing the most interest in Concordia-St. Paul kicker Tom Obarski: the Dolphins and Bengals. He impressed scouts Senior Bowl week.
Pels are gassed
ERIC GORDON IS ALIVE.
Big time o rebound by Asik. No pun intended
No pun intended? Uh, Reg, that wasn't a pun
Dante Cunningham doin work
Only in hockey is that kind of stuff even remotely tolerated. What a shame.
What a punk
Flip on draft: "I feel we’re going to get a good player. Whoever we draft will be a piece, yes. The draft is that good.”
Asked why he's optimistic about future, Flip said basically it's b/c he has his Harden or Rose who can "create something out of nothing"
Flip said again today they won't keep both 2nd rd picks. Asked if he could package those two to move into 1st rd, "We'll look at everything"
Flip said he'll have discussions over summer w/ shooting coach Mike Penberthy but said no decision has been made about him coming back
Drafting anywhere from 1 to 4, Flip said they'll have to take best player there regardless of position. You make mistakes drafting for need
Asked if he knows his future starting PF, Flip: "I couldn't say I do or don't," says he won't lock into anything when you win just 16 games
Flip talks on season. As of today, he's still coach & will be as long as it's best for player development & "where we want to be in 2 years"
3. Flip: "I don't want to get to the playoffs. I want to build a team that can win in the playoffs." Decisions will be made w/that in mind
2. Flip is the coach until he says he's not the coach. No indication things are changing on that front. He wants to coach full team
So the headlines from today's Flip Saunders State of the Wolves address: 1. Priorities this summer are getting stronger, improving D, 3s
Flip confirms what most of us imagined. Ricky Rubio will not play for Spain in the European Championships.
Flip: "I guarantee you were probably not keeping both second-round picks"
Will you be surprised if KG doesn't return? Flip: "I'd be surprised from the standpoint that KG doesn't like change." ... so, yes.
Toronto's Lou Williams wins NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award. Boston's Isaiah Thomas and LA Clippers's Jamal Crawford finish 2nd & 3rd
Chris Paul is probably going to have to play 53 minutes every game.* *yes, I know
