Is LeBron thinking about #knicks http://t.co/YYvswDFOKO

Ian Begley

Phil & Carmelo think the #Knicks are a playoff team. Here are 3 things that need to go well for that to happen: es.pn/1wDaDsl

Al Iannazzone

To the #Knicks, Phil, Fisher and his staff are like E.F. Hutton: "When they talk,” Melo said, “we listen.” newsday.com/sports/basketb…

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert on breakup with LeBron: "We had one bad night." #Lebron #cavaliers http://t.co/ebmVcRd4pn

Dan Gilbert, cavs owner, just threatened to pull a Derek Jeter when a phone started ringing during press conference.

Make that a pop-and-pop shop. RT @Andrew Keh: Michele Roberts said this summer union had previously been operating as "a mom-and-pop shop"

Gee, someone should have told me the Cleveland Marriott had a firearms policy. #lebron #Cavaliers http://t.co/wB0LQIAquP

Howard Beck

Lottery reform, dead or dormant? Gambling at NBA arenas? We went there with Commissioner Adam Silver (video): ble.ac/13cixz8

Frank Isola

And yet the Knicks allow Berman of the Post to walk around MSG like he owns the place. Double SMH.

Frank Isola

The coach who guided the Knicks to the NBA Finals needs ID at MSG? SMH. (See what I did there.) http://t.co/MZxXFF8TVt

Howard Beck

With Kohlman on board, longtime general counsel Ron Klempner will continue as special counsel for collective bargaining.

Howard Beck

NBPA also set to announce hiring of W. Gary Kohlman as new general counsel, as first reported by the New York Times last week.

Howard Beck

Mason, the former veteran guard, was most recently part of the union's executive committee that hired Roberts. He starts new job on Nov. 3

Howard Beck

NBPA news: Roger Mason hired as director of player relations, per sources. Mason among several new hires by exec director Michele Roberts.

Jonah Ballow

Kirk Hinrich played the 2 in place of Butler in the final 2 preseason games for the Bulls.

Ian Begley

Per @Nick Friedell, Jimmy Butler won't play tonight and is out 2-4 weeks with a thumb injury.

Chris Herring

Jimmy Butler out for a couple weeks, per @KC Johnson. Big for NYK, as he'd normally be the guy responsible for guarding Carmelo Anthony.

Jonah Ballow

Jimmy Butler out 2-4 weeks. That’s big for tonight’s game, especially on the defensive side of the floor for CHI. #Knicks

Jonah Ballow

On a game day…this is a good sign! RT @charliewiddoes: It's a great day… @Cleanthony Early is finally verified!

Chris Herring

Reggie speculated that Cleanthony had torn his Achilles. Then Cleanthony put some tape on his ankle and re-entered the game/kept playing.

Chris Herring

The guy Reggie misdiagnosed last year was Cleanthony Early, while he was calling a Wichita State game in the NCAA tourney.

Chris Herring

Reggie Miller always immediately speculates that people have Achilles injuries, by the way. He's almost never right.

Chris Herring

Randle was the one thing I really looked forward to with this Lakers team. Has a chance to be a really, really good player in this league.

What's this I hear about Melo being on Sons of Anarchy?

Peter Vecsey

How happy do you think Andrew Bynum is that no NBA team called him???

Jared Zwerling

Gotta love Manu's drive. Summer recovery and 1st game doing all he does: running breaks, passing, iso moves, smart cutting & finishing, etc.

Peter Vecsey

No doubt Chandler got good look for the win. Still, Dirk passing to corner while guarded 1-1 by much smaller Green, is not a percentage play

Chris Herring

How the hell did I go four months without the NBA?

Peter Vecsey

Anthony Davis, w 5:34 left in NO blowout of Magic: 23P, 16R (9 off), 9 blocks, 3 steals. He's famous, too, agrees James Harden

Not high on the Gregg Popovich beard. Looks like a cross of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ted Kaczynski. #Spurs

Frank Isola

In fairness, I think Bargnani's window is closing. Meanwhile, the great Balotelli scored today. His window? Broken glass but open.

Frank Isola

In a related story, Berman of the Post and Charley Rosen are reporting that the Spurs window is closing on Christmas Day.

Howard Beck

Saw Popovich a few weeks ago, complimented the beard. Me: "You look even more intimidating now." Pop (waving hand): "Ehhh, it's all shtick."

Frank Isola

Enough with the tired cliche "championship window" has closed, will close, is closing. The Spurs window never closes.

Alan Hahn

Halak makes some big saves, but he rarely has command of his crease. Both goals were the result of him having no idea where the puck was.

Steve Popper

Why does no one ever mention the other Spurs starter as in "Ewing and Barkley never won a ring, but they never had Matt Bonner."

Steve Popper

Ah, the first Tyson Chandler back tap of the season.

Tina Cervasio

Okay followers, let's be honest, raise your hand if you think it's a little weird seeing @Tyson Chandler back in a #Mavs uniform. ✋ #Knicks
