"Anytime I played at Madison Square Garden, it was the Mecca of basketball & you knew they knew the game of basketball" Jordan at US Open
Victor Martinez, the human rain delay.
On the triangle, Shump says: "I'll be able to use my athleticism a lot more than standing in the corner.” A reference to last year, I think.
ESPN broadcast booth talking about pay disparity in tennis, citing specific figures that ran today in WSJ. Have not heard them credit WSJ.
Shumpert said he "used to react" to trade rumors & people sharing their opinions on social media but now his agency operates his accounts.
Trade rumors and people comstantly telling him what he "needed to be doing" has led Iman Shumpert to "step away" from social media.
As a sneaker aesthete, I can say with confidence that the Federer Jordans are amazing.
Shumpert expects more opportunities to cut & slash to the basket in the triangle offense & he's worked to strengthen his left leg for that.
At his basketball camp, Iman Shumpert says he's been working on "getting that trust back" in his left leg to cut & jump more effectively.

Michael Jordan just arrived here at Open and will sit in Federer box. Met with Fed yesterday. They've worked on shoe together.
The Knicks having open D-League tryouts next month. It's a paid gig, plus Berman of the Post will write that you are a future NBA All Star.
Manchester United is losing 4-0 to MK Dons, which I believe is a high school team from Harlem.
Correction: D-League Knicks tryouts are *next* month. Which only gives me more time to prepare.
Westchester Knicks holding open tryouts later this month. Considering whether to give it a shot.
Slovenia coach saying Suns pushed for Dragic not to play this summer, then play fewer games on a minutes restriction.
You know what isn't a bad bet? Anthony Davis at 25/1. FYI: future Knick Marc Gasol is 200/1 & Kobe is 55/1.
Stephen Curry was somehow the first player to foul out today. Slovenians balanced their fouls out better among the roster.
Said politely: When Gay and DeRozan are out there together, the other 3 guys just don't seem very aggressive looking for their own shot.
Point guard Touré Murry officially signed a two-year deal with the Utah Jazz today, according to league sources.
Faried to Davis alley-oop! Both have been impressive today.
Not a huge believer in plus/minus, but for those who are: Kyrie a team-high +19 at half. Derrick Rose a team-low minus-5.
Halftime entertainment at the US-Slovenia exhibition game. http://t.co/dnBXkuoglE
Slovenia fouling so much that I swear a ref just called a kicked ball and somehow Harden is shooting free throws anyway.
Besides Goran Dragic, two other Slovenians already with 3 fouls before halftime. Hopefully 12 players will be enough to finish the game.
Goran Dragic heads to the bench with 3 of the 10 fouls the Dragics can use today. Brother Zoran only has one.
I'm not sure Slovenia has gone consecutive possessions without fouling today.
Powerful dunk by Cousins, followed by a sound effect that I believe was machine gun fire. Not your average NBA game sound effect.
And that's not sharp yet in this exhibition season, not just today.
Dragic slices right through US defense for a layup on first possession. Defense from guards hasn't been sharp yet.
NBA informed teams of new player safety regulations today. More free space to either side of stanchions, fewer photographers on the floor.
Here in Gran Canaria, one of the finest pregames I've ever seen. Lots of dancers, music. Like being at the circus.
Slovenia has some excellent green and yellow sneaker looks, though Goran Dragic appears to be going with plain ol' white.
A mixture of Jordan and Rose among the many Bulls jerseys. All the Cavs ones so far appear to be Kyrie. No past or present LeBrons.
Always fun to look at the jerseys in the stands during USA overseas games. Kobe, as usual, the leader so far. Good Steph Curry showing.
"They" also claim the Knicks have been trying to trade J.R. I believe "they" be right about that one.
The one thing "they" can all agree upon is that J.R. had a great season in 2012-13 while last season was a complete "you-know-what show."
"They" also said that Eagles manager Irving Azoff would never become the most powerful man at MSG. Now look at him. "They" are wrong a lot.
Hey, "they" said Berman of the Post wouldn't last after he began a story last summer with "It will be oh so grand...and Brand" & yet he had
Just one question for J.R., who are "they"?
Am I wrong- Nico & vinz
I believe Jeremy Lin and Rasheed Wallace had similar quotes about injuries when they were Knicks, and never suited up for them again.
Clearing out room on the recorder, came across Kenyon saying he could've gone back in a game if it was close. Not sure he ever played again.
Thank God for today
Drake en route to Breaking Bad after party.
I wish they'd put some nominees in the upper deck.
Start the music, please.
Has Property Brothers won all the Emmys yet?
Amber Rose should have loaned her VMA dress to Sophia Vergara.
