I'm sure it's been said; but says a lot about Hawks' Carroll -- a pending UFA -- playing after scary-looking knee deal in Game 1.
Odd stuff in Atlanta. Half the practice gym is set up as a media room. Dennis Schroder just insisted on making baskets at both ends.
Cavs announce that Kyrie Irving will not play tonight.
DeMarre Carroll is a game-time decision said Mike Budenholzer sounding a lot like Dwane Casey. It's about 98 minutes to game time.
Why isn't the only story about Michael Sam that the Als have signed an ex-NFLer?
To me, Russell, Clarkson, FA, Randle, FA is more intriguing than washed-up Rondo, Clarkson, FA, Randle, Okafor for Lakers.
How much does Kobe’s imminent retirement impact Lakers decision to take Okafor/Towns or opt for a potential star guard like Russell/Mudiay?
I've become my own punchline...as apparently I cannot even change a light bulb (outside) without dropping the fixture & breaking the glass
And while the Cavs deal with Kyrie issues, the Hawks making it sound like it's actually possible DeMarre Carroll plays tonight. SMH.
"Hi Eric, I was recently checking out your Twitter account, and I think I have the perfect match for you." The fit was promoting brands.
Do people really like challenges? Or do they like the idea that they like challenges?
It's going to be a beautiful weekend. Let's get super angry about something in advance.
Both stars had costly turnovers late. Curry & Harden. It's the only way to beat either -- trap em. Force the pass. Let others beat ya
Nobody is beating the Warriors this year
Had Orlando or Houston ever made it this far, would Raptors fans feel the same way watching McGrady that Thunder fans must with Harden?
Every sports fan deserve to cheer for a team, once in his or her life, as fun as these Warriors. What joy.
Warriors in 18.
Te amo ❤️😍

Wall, Butler, Millsap, Horford all easily could have earned a spot on one of the All-NBA teams. Pau Gasol just a weird choice

Boogie Cousins makes All-NBA 2nd team. Aldridge, Pau, Westbrook, Paul. Curry,Harden, LeBron, Marc Gasol, Davis 1st tm. DeRozan 3 pts Lowry 1
"Living in downtown Toronto is an exciting thing for us," says Babcock. "But the rent!" I think to myself.
Babcock denies accusation he had a deal with Sabres. Sharp contrast to Leafs love-in vibe.
Babcock says he worked out financial stuff with Sabres, but did not have final deal.

Buffalo people are not happy!
"We have to get [Hunter] draft picks," says Babcock, revealing what sorts of moves are coming.
