Solid job by Rudy Gay, got called in last minute for Team USA and ends up making the final roster.
So it looks like Damian Lillard, Kyle Korver, and Gordon Hayward were cut from the roster for USA that now stands at 12.
In other news, I recently discovered Bernie (of "Weekend at" fame) lives in my complex. He's been dead 25 years and still looks fabulous.
In Avellino, Hanga will have the chance to play with Spurs draftee Deshuan Thomas in Italy.
Well now we know why Adam Hanga wasn't in Baskonia's new pictures, he's getting loaned to Avellino.
Memphis pays Josh Pastner more than that. Nothing against Memphis or Josh Pastner, but come on. It's not like Barnes is stealing.
Should also note that neither Barnes nor Garrido received new raises. Just the previously scheduled annual bumps.
As long as it costs UT less than a year's pay to get out of the deal, the length of the extension is for show as much as anything.
No new buyout figures were released. Keep in mind Mack Brown was extended to 2020 after the 2011 season. It's a recruiting thing.
Texas regents approve contract extensions for Rick Barnes (at $2.5M per year) through 2019 and for Augie Garrido ($1.04M) through 2017.
There's a great Vegas tapas place that was temporarily closed for health-code violations. It's still an annual must for me. I'm forgiving.
These kids were amazing . Thank you manila !!! http://t.co/dXTDTKwfpm
Last RT, ESPN Summer Forecast voters picked Spurs to win the Western Conference Finals next season with 232 votes, Thunder 159, Clippers 89
Strong says Templin and Haines will play next week. Can't remember Mack using an unrecruited, non-military walk-on in 16 years.
If Shipley's out, UT's top WR (Marcus Johnson) has 22 career catches. John Harris, walk-on Ty Templin, Jacorey Warrick are other options.
Strong says Jaxon Shipley (hamstring) still isn't getting any practice reps.
Strong: "Tyrone (Swoopes) is the clear No. 2 quarterback."
Dez Harrison, who's been working at that spot, is suspended for at least the opener. Other options are Hutchins, James.
On the starting OL, Strong says Espinosa (C), Flowers and Perkins (G) and Estelle (T) have spots. Other T spot up for grabs.
Strong confirms backup OL Rami Hammad has left the program. "We wish him the best."
Strong says he isn't sure if Jaxon Shipley will be full-strength for the season opener.
Strong names 10 starters on defense, all the ones you've heard, with Hall and Haines fighting for last safety spot.
How long will I see Nando in my mentions? I'm thinking at least three more years.
The top five in Hoopshype's Spurs rankings, in order: Duncan, Robinson, Gervin, Parker, Ginobili. No complaints.
Hoje tem jogao contra Lituania, time experiente e de muita qualidade. Tonight we play vs Lithuania, team w/ a lot of experience and talent.
When you bench Tim, Tony and Manu and still win by double-digits. http://t.co/aeyO3WS01T
Rudy Gay is the goods
True story: Those are Kawhi's actual hands in that retweeted photo.
I'll say this: there are more players on this Texas team showing actual public personality than on any in a long time.
He also pounded the table in front of him for good measure.
Texas DT Tank Jackson, emphasizing every other word, Bill Clinton-style, "I'm tired. of everybody saying. the Texas defense. is soft."
Malcom Brown, maybe Texas' next great DT, hasn't studied the old ones. Heard of Casey Hampton? "Mm-mm. I try to make a name for myself."
After a long day of hard work and you think you did a lot, just know the next man is working even harder!
It's been 24 hours. Still no sign of Pop's ALS ice bucket challenge video. The world missed out.
