Good morning world.
Woodson's assistants — Jim Todd, Darrell Walker and Herb Williams — all have Raps connections. Now, they are all unemployed.
Very curious to see who Phil Jackson hires in order to fire and replace with himself.
It's like I always say: It's not official until 92.9 FM in Memphis reports it.
Avoid the comments on that last one. :(
Harden's beard has reached the point of diminishing returns,
Just caught that Shaq hack on Dwight. Entertaining. Funny that only now Shaq can recognize unrealized potential in a big man.
Tough luck for Dallas there. Spurs were lockdown in the crunch but at same time Mavs just couldn't get one to fall. Terrible feeling.
Tony Parker is criminally under-rated and I am one of the guilty ones.
They're letting Stamkos stay in the game? Hockey is messed, man.
Wow this stat: 47 times out of 76 game played this season, Carlos Boozer sat on the bench the entire 4Q.
Wondering who to blame for shot clock fiasco at ACC. Here's a hint: "Put it this way. They are not the world wide leader in electricians."
Better late than never: HAPPY EASTER everyone! http://t.co/jenrRFC4LW
When I 1st heard the "We The North" line, I didn't luv it. The more I watch the commercial...the more the line sinks in, the more I like it
Then again, the Nets don't have a huge rival too. KG and Pierce have Miami, Brooklyn has Knicks. But this team, specifically? Nope.
If you asked a Brooklyn fan if the Raptors were their rivals, they'd laugh for days.
Let's cut it off now with a little sanity: The Raptors do not have a rival. The Nets are not the Raptors' rival. Hopefully soon, but not yet
Highlights of Casey scrum: started with: "I promise not to use any profanity", referred to Pierce's pump fake/drive as the "Texas 3-step"
Casey: "I think Game 2 is a whole different animal. I think the newness & the shiny part of the playoffs is worn off. I think that’ll help"
DeRozan said he wasn't really nervous yesterday but it felt like the game was moving faster. Helped to watch film today, slowed things down
DeMar: "I don't need a whole ‘nother playoff round to get ready. Im' definitely not going to make the same mistakes twice. It's adjustments”
After Sat afternoon's loss, DeRozan spent rest of the day in his room, thought about going to the gym to shoot at 1am but wanted to regroup
Pop video, plz.
I got DeMar to agree with my assessment that Joe Johnson's big butt gives him advantage. So, I have won journalism today. /Jordan shrug
So again; word at ACC is Raptors shot clock snafu, much mocked on ESPN, may have been caused by ESPN. Fun!
DeRozan said Joe Johnson is 260, awfully tough to get back in front of once you're behind him. Has to do better.
"As bad as we played we only lost by so much." DeMar DeRozan, pointing to slim margin
On Raps shot clock snafu: word is it was caused by 'outside' entity - 'let's just say they are not the worldwide leader in electricity'
Casey: foul trouble frustrated a lot of players. "Looking at the film, it should have."
Kyle Lowry promised lots of adjustments. More running, better work on offensive boards, far better execution and DeRozan getting on track.
Just wrote something about Fuck Brooklyn and capitalism, which is the least surprising thing ever.
The sun is shining & it’s time for some good old brunch & basketball! Sounds like a great birthday to me :)
"He isn't here! He is risen, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying" Happy Resurrection Sunday. Thank you, Jesus!
Well, every game so far has featured at least one buzzer beater to end a quarter.
“He's very passionate man. I definitely have his back, I'm with him 100%” Amir Johnson said. “If he says f___'em, we all say f___'em.”
Normally polite to a fault, Dwane Casey to a new reporter that asked if the team let down the fans? “Get educated on basketball."
Normally polite to a fault, Dwane Casey to a first-time Raptors reporter. “Get educated on basketball."
The charge rule in the NBA has gotten out of control. Running in front of someone and falling has become too prevalent.
Vasquez says he went to Paul Pierce's Nike basketball camp back in the day. "I grew up watching this guy, imagine playing against him now"
Lowry on DeMar's struggles: “They overplayed him. They really denied him the ball."
"New cables will be run tonight and tmrw to ensure no issues arise on Tues and the NBA will inspect both the fixed and backup systems"
MLSE releases a statement re: shot clock malfunction - they experienced a "signal path failure", temp shot clocks relied on same system
MLSE says “we experienced a signal path failure midway through the third Q of today’s game. Our backup system relied on the same source."
Pierce: “I don’t remember if I’ve ever played [in a game without a functioning clock] since I’m a dinosaur.” Trolling so hard.
