When I think Bazemore, I think @Rachel92Lauren

Mike Ganter

Nice twist on the Kiss Cam here in Atlanta. They call it the Overly Complicated Handshake Cam. It's something that could catch on.

Paul Jones

Great to see @TMaG_Cj with @MarkZecchino & @jimtatti on @GolfTalkCanada. Nice job man & good to see that Tatti needs same help as me #rough

Mike Ganter

Now James is at the table to check back in.

Mike Ganter

LeBron was getting some attention in that timeout from the medical staff. He is on the bench as play resumes.

Eric Smith

25+ yrs Jays share dome w/ Argos & Raps share ACC (originally to be built as bball-only) w/ Leafs, yet FC fans now moan about sharing BMO?

Payal Doshi

When JR Smith scores in double figures the @Cleveland Cavaliers are 28-6 this season. #NBAPlayoffs

Mike Ganter

Hawks are shooting a tick under 58%. Cavs are shooting 50%.

Mike Ganter

Bazemore hits one at the buzzer to tie the game at 51 at the half. LeBron has 16 topped only by Jeff Teague who has 17.

Mike Ganter

Hawks up 26-20. Teague has nine. LeBron picked up two rather quick fouls.

Mike Ganter

Tristan Thompson has three offensive boards already. He's also been beaten twice badly on drives by Hawks guards.

Ryan Wolstat

Teague gets rolling so quickly. Moves like a running back

Mike Ganter

Korver hits his first three ball and draws the foul. Fans here in Atlanta ecstatic.

Mike Ganter

Just like the Yankees fans in right field, the Atlanta Hawks fan section does a players roll call calling out the Hawks until they respond.

Payal Doshi

Colabello stirring the pot for the @BlueJays driving in a run to tie the game up 1-1 in the bottom of the 4th vs. @Angels

Mike Ganter

Tristan Thompson on how much Hawks film he watched: "A lot. I watched it all night. It’s almost like getting ready for an exam. I’m ready."

Mike Ganter

Cavs' head coach David Blatt on Kyrie Irving: "Hopefully he’ll be able to play this series in a better physical state."

Mike Ganter

“If we get Kyle rolling, we rolling.” Guard DeMarre Carroll on Korver who is shooting just 35% from three in the post season.

Michael Grange

Mike Babcock's first day on the job was one of the most MLSE days ever: sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/obs… @Sportsnet

The best. #ThanksDave #Letterman http://t.co/dZ3WiNjhrZ

Mike Babcock named Maple Leafs head coach - Toronto Maple Leafs - News ow.ly/NcRmo

Eric Koreen

A TSN radio caller says Babcock doesn't even have to say anything when he walks into a room. I'll take just US$5-million to not say anything

Michael Grange

FYI; My reference to Babcock 'ruining' lottery prospects refers to him elevating rebuilding team from lottery, not 'ruining' young players.

Michael Grange

What I'm saying is great coaching + sub-par talent = a team finishing in the mushy middle again and again. How will Babcock change that? /5

Michael Grange

It's possible Leafs will be paying $6m+/yr for next few years for a coach who will consistently 'ruin' their lottery prospects /4

Ryan Wolstat

LeBron James had made six straight appearances on an all-defensive team (five 1st team nods) before being left out this year.

Michael Grange

You could argue that Babcock's coaching could hurt in short-term; 'better' tanking this year and Leafs could be No.1 or No.2 pick /3

Michael Grange

And while Babcock is accomplished; no talent = no championship; so where/when does the talent arrive? Getting the coach is easy part. /2

Michael Grange

Most significant # in Babcock deal is term. Eight years. To me it reflects he knows building a contender in Toronto is a LONG road. 1/

Eric Koreen

The Leafs should leverage their $$$ advantage by hiring every hockey coach.

Ryan Wolstat

Babcock will also be the new defensive lead assistant for the Raptors.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors were one of 6 teams that didnt have a player receive a single vote for NBA All-Defense (Raps, Nets, Knicks, Nuggets, Lakers, Wolves)

Eric Koreen

In today's news, people like money.

Michael Grange

If reports of 8yrs/$50-million for Babcock are accurate, that is huge money/term for any coach in any league, not just NHL.

Ryan Wolstat

An absolute outrage that no member of the Raptors earned an all-defensive team vote. For shame.

Ryan Wolstat

Anthony Davis on second team all-defence for probably last time for next 15 years. Butler, Bogut, Wall, Duncan join him. LeBron left out.

Eric Koreen

For Babcock reference — Sean Payton makes US$8-million annually, Popovich makes US$11-million. But, both have lots of personnel control.

Ryan Wolstat

Meanwhile, Draymond Green, Kawhi and DeAndre Jordan 1st-time all-D 1st team members, with Tony Allen and Chris Paul.

Ryan Wolstat

Even if it’s a far tougher situation, would be hard for anyone to turn down that kind of money and prestige. Ultimate $/ego play. #babcock

Michael Grange

Given Leiweke/Tanenbaum/MSLE record re delivering on promises, why shouldn't they be taken at face value on future TFC field conditions?

Ryan Wolstat

He can burn down the ACC and not be worse than the last Babcock hired by MLSE.

Michael Grange

Clever of MLSE to have Bell/Tanenbaum buy Argos to throw everyone off scent of Babcock chase.

Doug Smith

Rob Babcock's coming back!?!?!?! Who knew?

Eric Koreen

Not Rob Ford out there Not Rob Fording.

Michael Grange

Still waiting to hear a shout-out/olive-branch to TFC fans at the Argos presser ....

Eric Koreen

You're not going to believe this, but TSN is showing the Argos press conference, and Rogers is not.

Eric Koreen

So to recap: Bell and Rogers co-own Leafs, Raps, TFC, Marlies; Rogers owns Jays; Bell owns Argos. Rock are biggest non-media-owned team.

Eric Koreen

Hey, it's George Cope! He exists!

Mike Ganter

Tristan Thompson getting a lot of attention from the Hawks in their prep. He's a beast on the offensive glass and rebounding not Hawks forte

Coaching the Leafs is a perfect job for someone who hates himself and loves money. Does Babcock hate himself?

I don't see why TFC fans wouldn't look forward to Argos games at BMO ... twitter.com/tpeters007/sta…

Michael Grange

Agreed, but professional soccer on a field trashed by a rain-soaked football game is an embarrassment twitter.com/pukwrestling/s…

Michael Grange

Oct. & Nov. are Toronto's wettest months; also when Argos & TFC will play their key games on their new shared grass field!

Does he know that he's not starring in a bad movie? twitter.com/stevemaich/sta…

Ryan Wolstat

The Wolves apparently love Jahlil Okafor and he has same agent as Andrew Wiggins, Bill Duffy.

Ryan Wolstat

Atlantic Division teams could have 10 first-round selections in 2016, but New York and Brooklyn don’t own any of them (Toronto has 2).

Ryan Wolstat

Sixers have to wait a year for firsts from Lakers, Heat, but still have No. 3 pick and five second-rounders. Boston 4 1st 4 seconds in 2016

Eric Smith

That kind of game. Can't wait for the rest of the series. #Rockets #Warriors #NBA http://t.co/gNdgRSJOe8

Ryan Wolstat

People are forgetting something: Julius Randle is a really good basketball player too.

Ryan Wolstat

Pundit consensus seems to be Okafor no-brainer at 2 but I don't get it. Give me Russell or Winslow (haven't seen Mudiay enough) with Randle.

Ryan Wolstat

Towns and Randle would work but if Towns goes 1 Okafor/Randle projects as bad fit. Terrible on D, two cooks on O.

Drayman Green literally wears his emotions on his sleeve. #DubNation

Only fourth time in many years the team with worst record wins first pick. Knicks stay Knicking. Good news for Raptors
