USA Basketball makes it official. Coach K coming back for third stint as men's coach.
8 hours later still dumb to have Hibbert out - but terrible job by Paul George - and everyone else. Sam Young thought, "ah, just let him go"
When Donnie Walsh says the Pacers match up well against the Heat, I don't think he means minus Roy HIbbert.
Vogel said he grabbed Paul after game and told him to forget that last play. Paul then grabbed Vogel & told him not to forget last play.
This just in: The league office plans to review the replay of Frank Vogel's decision to bench Roy Hibbert...
Let's b honest here: Coach K didn't change his mind about committing time away from home again 2 coach Team USA. His wife changed her mind.
I haven't watched many LeBron press conferences before. Sounds as if he has a near-photographic memory when it comes to plays during a game.
Can wait to see George's winning outfit
My respect for Paul George's game went up three notches tonight. My opinion on his wardrobe? *whistles and walks away*
Vogel was worried about Bosh hitting J. What? Off inbounds pass? Not. Bron was getting ball. After that there was no time 2 pass, just shoot
Knicks fans watching tonight must wonder what was so tough about George Hill. Guy had trouble just catching and dribbling.
Vogel says Hibbert will probably be in next time. Next time? You had a next time and blew it both times.
Would've been an amazing steal of game for Indy since what they do best - defend and hustle - was only half there. Outrun for so many loose.
Prior to Game I, Donnie Walsh texted Heat-Pacers series was "Speed and skill vs. size and inside presence." Vogel erased team's advantage.
Greg Anthony said everything that had 2b said about Vogel's numbskull decision to bench HIbbert. Said Pacers should've zoned up w 2.2
Listening to Barkley and Kenny Smith shows that all announcers shouldn't be coaches. Rather have LeBron layup than Bosh 20-footer?

Only thing I can think of is that Vogel was still thinking about LeBron not being called for his 9th foul prior to Bosh 3-point play.
Not having Hibbert in the game for those two crucial plays the Pacers were inviting James to drive.
Good game. George didn't deserve to lose it. Pacers have to grab the board up 3 and Hibbert has to be on the floor on last possession.
O.J. just demanded a new Pacers' defense
George overplayed LeBrons right side, which was the right gamble. LeBron exploded left, which was a great move. Pacers help D frozen.
It's worth noting that Knicks beat Miami 3 out of 4 games during the regular season.
Why were the Pacers guarding the corners? There wasn't time for a pass from LeBron. I cannot recall a worse coaching decision 2 sit Hibbert
Hey Sam Young, you need to absolutely lay out LeBron there. Not a good time to be stopping and watching.
Having Sam Young in there was a big help because he made sure not to get in LeBron's way.
Two biggest possessions of OT and Roy Hibbert is in the bench.
Hibbert not in the game again????!!! WTF!!!! Rim Protector on the bench!!! WTF!!!
Frank Vogel, I've credited you all year. But it's fitting that you get burned when you pull a defender of Hibbert's caliber out twice there.
Hey look, no Hibbert AGAIN.
I mean, second chance and you put Hibbert on the bench again? Brian Shaw, did you approve? Because if you did your stock just went down.
So, Hibbert is on the bench again.
Wade got more of George's hand on his three free throws than he did on his jumper.
This game can't end without one more whistle, right?
Just saying, someone should tell Vogel now to keep Hibbert in for these last defensive set.
Billy King is on the phone to Donnie Walsh to find out if Brian Shaw had anything to do with Hibbert's removal.
Wow - the Pacers with the worst pair of last-second sets - and they both work.
Vogel, during the Knicks' series: "The beauty of this team is that we don't really adjust to other teams. We do what we do."
Classic NBA over-coaching. Yea, lets sit our biggest, best interior defender when we need a stop, against LeBron, who wants to drive
Everybody on the planet wants to know why Vogel removed Hibbert from the game. Certainly not for defensive reasons...
Hibbert on the bench?!
So first LeBron sees Vogel take Hibbert out, then sees Hill switch on him with no help. Okay, well, there's always Game 2.
Vogel's getting too cute. Did it during the Knicks-Pacers series, too. Don't go away from what got you to this point.
Look for LeBron to find Kerr or Paxson for open three
A fallaway jumper by West is not what Ty Corbin would've drawn up...
Prehistoric 3-point play by Dino Bosh
LeBron James was just called for his fourth fifth foul. I mean, finally called for the fifth.
That LeBron Ot interception looked like James vs. Dallas in Finals.
Dont know a single person whos not excited about the notion of seeing George's game develop. Has all the right attributes to be really good
John and Ringo are impressed...
Pacers got away with Allen missing one free throw. it's not going to happen again. So, Pacers should go for three right now, not a two
OK NBA sabermatricians, we need a statistical analysis of how many time per 48 minutes a Heat player falls down.
Paul George saw Chris Webber out of the corner of his eye
What a great, veteran drive by Wade, though left warded off HIbbert a tinge...
Based on my experience, if Heat lose Game I w LeBron flicking 3 off demolished play with shot clock winding down, it's the Pacers' series.
So Melo played through a torn labrum.
You're telling me Battier wasn't out of bounds when he banged ball off Pacer?
Except that crazy fan who yelled at Noah. She's probably cool with it. "My 5th husband will be a referee!"
I mean, even if you are a Heat fan you can't like seeing the refs take over.
Kerr, on LeBron-Vogel: "Another example of the media stirring it up..." Didnt he keep suggesting Rose should play during MIAs last series?
A lot being made of Pacers' 16 TOs, but Miami has 14. Pacers own the glass and the tempo right now.
Chris Paul has joined illustrious group of coach saboteurs, joining Magic, Kidd (college/pro), Penny, Deron, Big E, Shaq, Dwight, Cousins
Reports about Melo's torn labrum. Look no further than Apr. 14 vs IND when David West targeted him. As I said then, mission accomplished.
How soon before State Farm does a commercial with Chris Paul assisting Vinny Del Negro out of the Clippers job?
Who was more surprised during Heat T.O. when Spoelstra "revealed" Miami had 10 turnovers, TNT's audience or TNT's 2 commentators & Marv?
Favorite play of lst half: Lance stopping on FB & drilling mid-range springer vs trying 2 he-man through defender. Easiest shot in the game.
Must be so cute when refs review Heat game film and say, "Oh, that Battier got us again" and "I THOUGHT Haslem went down easily!"
C'mon Roy, never take the long 2.
In Garnett's slight defense - although the play was dirty - Melo says the original injury came from David West in regular season.
NY Daily News report - Melo MRI reveals small labrum tear. Knicks official statement coming tonight.
Told Melo won't need surgery but played with partially torn labrum during playoffs. MRI results in.
LeBron with two first quarter fouls. A 5-second violation against Wade. AND Reggie Miller is on TNT. Me: “I have become comfortably numb.”
Ridiculous that the Pacers have turned it over this much, yet have the lead.
The Pacers look lethargic. The Knicks, sitting home with hot wings and beer, wonder where that was last week.
The plan, according to a Knicks source, is to give Carmelo's shoulder 3 to 4 weeks to heal on its own. If not, then surgery is probable
An MRI reveals that Carmelo Anthony is suffering from a small left shoulder tear, Daily News has learned. Knicks hopeful no surgery needed
