Josh Lewenberg

Opponents have taken issue with JV's elbows in the past. That was the origins of his feud with current teammate, then-opponent Greg Stiemsma

Josh Lewenberg

Flinch-gate aside, Valanciunas has sort of gotten lost in frenetic pace of the first half. Has just 1 FG in 4 attempts as US leads 43-35

Josh Lewenberg

JV had to have been caught off guard by Cousins' reaction, hence his humorous flinch. Can't imagine it was based in fear.

Ryan Wolstat

To be fair, Charles Oakley’s the only guy on the planet who doesn’t flinch with DeMarcus Cousins coming at him.

Eric Koreen

The only thing better than blaming the victim once is blaming the victim twice: online.wsj.com/articles/roger…

Doug Smith

Many things for FIBA to be proud of; the depth of its officiating is not one of them. This looks Summer League-ish at times

Eric Koreen

Cousins with the rare combination of remarkable foolishness and remarkable restraint there.

Josh Lewenberg

Cousins goes after Valanciunas as the two bigs battle for a rebound. Former teammate Rudy Gay calms JV down.

Ryan Wolstat

Cousins thought about taking a shot at Valanciunas after VAlanciunas elbow choke

Eric Koreen

DMC just contemplated killing Jonas.

Michael Grange

Excellent Op-ed in Globe and Mail by Raptors Masai Ujiri on Danny Ferry's comments: theglobeandmail.com/sports/basketb…

Eric Koreen

JV still looks off balance in the post sometimes.

Josh Lewenberg

Has anyone's stock skyrocketed as a result of this tournament more so than Faried's? Maybe Klay? Manimal becoming THE Man before our eyes

Ryan Wolstat

Sure, you tend to lose a lot on D when you become primary scorer, happened with McGrady after leaving Raptors, but stands out with Harden

Tom Liston

Well said. "Masai Ujiri weighs in on the Danny Ferry controversy" - The Globe and Mail ow.ly/BoFeJ

Eric Koreen

Timely Grease reference by the FIBA commentator.

Ryan Wolstat

Am I “misremembering” or was James Harden not a decent defender in OKC? He’s horrific now.

Eric Koreen

Lithuania's plan of running an isolation against James Harden every time down the floor is sound.

Josh Lewenberg

A thoughtful & well-articulated perspective on a messy situation MT @cathalkelly Raptors Masai Ujiri on Danny Ferry m.theglobeandmail.com/sports/basketb…

Josh Lewenberg

Lithuania hanging around despite 7 1stQ turnovers. Not an advantageous formula vs the States. 21-16 USA. JV with 5 pts, 1 reb in 6 mins

Eric Koreen

USA up 21-16 after a quarter. Feels like a blown opportunity for Lithuania. Missed FTs, US sloppiness, etc.

Ryan Wolstat

No surprise there, but that was an outstanding piece by Masai Ujiri.

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan checks in for the States. USA making their first push of the afternoon, taking advantage of a very sloppy start from Lithuanians

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas gets an early chance to pay Rudy Gay back for never passing to him.

Eric Koreen

Anthony Davis cares not for Hakeem Olajuwon's summertime teachings.

Ryan Wolstat

Board dominance and havoc created in passing lanes should be difference for USA today

Eric Koreen

Kenneth Faried: also hasn't gotten the JV pump-fake memo.

Josh Lewenberg

JV was a beast on the boards in the quarters but Team USA is a completely different an(man)imal. Americans have been dominant on the glass

Eric Koreen

Best to not turn it over, Lithuania. Like, ever.

Ryan Wolstat

Lithuania-USA semi-final on now on NBA TV Canada. Valanciunas opens the scoring.

Jonas Valanciunas goes up against some damn good big men imminently on NBA TV Canada: Lithuania vs. USA at 3 ET.

Josh Lewenberg

Davis, Cousins & the American bigs will be a good litmus test for Valanciunas. His biggest of the summer. Game's on NBA TV Canada @ 3pm

Watching the telecast of France defeating Spain...looking ahead and handling the pressure of a being a favourite ain't easy #FIBAWorldCup

Ryan Wolstat

Not absolving Tyson for his past, but why ask about that now in a laid back interview and what the hell do u expect to happen when u ask it?

Ryan Wolstat

Smart move by French coach convincing Rudy Gobert he was in Vegas and this was a Summer League game.

Ryan Wolstat

Stunning win by France over Spain. No Parker, no Noah, no worries

Greivis Vasquez

Aqui descansando despues de un dia de trabajo... Que mas? Activo con el twitter.. #TeamVasquez

Eric Koreen

Spain's window might include '16 olympics, but have to figure US team is better for that tournament than for this one.

Doug Smith

France was unreal, near perfect game; allez les bleus. Sill feel cheated we won't get USA-Spain V 3.0

Eric Koreen

Spain's done. U.S. now overwhelming FIBA faves. That's good for Canada. U.S. win would open up extra OLY qualifying spot in Americas.

Eric Koreen

Boris Diaw: simultaneous NBA champ, European champ, world champ is on the table.

Eric Koreen

Meanwhile, in sports: Spain is down 5 with 3 minutes to go. Massive potential upset.

Eric Koreen

What if this is all one giant Mark Cohon power play?

Eric Koreen

I like that the NFL is doubling down on its PR strategy: "It's just that we're incompetent!"

Eric Koreen

"Boy, we're in some hot water. Idea: What if we had the Super Bowl THIS SUNDAY?"

Eric Koreen

"We just didn't think that anybody gave a damn about women." - Goodell, like, nine interviews from now

Eric Koreen

Another banner day for the merits of total and complete cynicism.

Eric Koreen

But why would Roger Goddell have lied about seeing the tape? It's like you can't believe anybody anymore.

Eric Koreen

Spain down 7 at the half to France in final FIBA QF. Hoo boy.

Eric Koreen

Good to have Barbosa in the NBA. I'm pulling for a Barbosa-Calderon nice-off one of these years.

Eric Koreen

The players have their faults, sure. Mostly they want to play, though, preferably for a fair % of revenue they drive.

Eric Koreen

Come the next lockout, please remember: The owners think like Michael Gearon. "How can I make this horrible thing work for me?"

Eric Koreen

Of course the Deng/Ferry/Levenson stuff came out because of an ownership power play. To hell with morals and virtues: sports.yahoo.com/news/an-exclus…
