The narrative is the Vinny Del Negro is a poor coach. His team went from 40-26 to 56-26. His team went from 18th to 8th defensively.
I thought ex-Clipper coach Vinny Del Negro did a good job with a clearly flawed team. Assistant Marc Iavaroni, too.
From the way their communities half-heartedly support their teams, New Orleans and Charlotte are lucky to even have NBA nicknames.
Late night thought to chew on - what is smaller for a draft prospect - a 5'11 point guard or a 6'3 shooting guard?
The last tweet about Kodji and Larkin. Kodji has been best in this game for this period of time - Larkin is better player
Watching Shane Larkin but his teammate Kenny Kodji 6'11 stretch 4 with range and athleticism is best player on the floor
Tip Off at 6:40 am

Wow Denver has 54 million on books for 13-14 and 56.6 for 14-15 how do they possibly re-sign Iguodala if he opts out of 16.1 million
Tom Thibodeau says Chicago Blackhawks and their fans know what's going on. NHL fines him $35K.
TV guy asks Red Wing player for turning point in the game. He did not say horrible goaltender interference call that wiped out tying goal.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes. Had another great year. I m so grateful for ALLAH (GOD)'s grace and all the blessing
I think I discovered what ECHL officials do in the offseason. They work the NHL playoffs. Goaltender interference? You gotta be kidding?
GM Dennis Lindsey likes Jazz's spot, win or lose lottery: "If we stay there, we like the projections and the different possibilities at 14."
All your little daily problems disappear when watching a monster tornado on TV and realizing lives are being taken/changed forever. Prayers.
But, Lindsey said, "I think we can move up. I think we've already had a few loose conversations around that so there's some potential there"
Lindsey said No. 21 can be a good player and he isn't sure there is enough separation from 14 caliber guy to higher picks to use 21.
GM Dennis Lindsey said Jazz are open about what they'll do in first round. "Open is a good thing," he said. Could pick, move up, move down.
Spent a lot of time looking into odds/probability this weekend. @willhillbet has confirmation of Loch Ness Monster at 200/1.
Since NBA revamped lottery in '94, Charlotte in 1999 was only franchise to jump from last lottery spot into top 3.
Final note on that Jazz-Laker Game 7: Magic had 23 points, 16 assists, 9 rebounds. Stockton scored or assisted on 30 of Utah's 39 FGs.
From that Jazz-Laker Game 7: Malone 31 points, 15 rebounds, 14-21 FGs. Stockton 29 points, 20 assists, 5 steals. Both played 48 minutes.
25 years ago: Lakers beat Jazz in Game 7 of conference semis, 109-98. Malone 31, Byron Scott 29. Jazz's first appearance on national stage.
The Jazz have picked at No. 14 twice before, ending up with Ronnie Brewer in 2006 and Kris Humphries in '04.
Rigby: "I don't do any gambling, but...when I've played golf, when I've done different activities I've had pretty good fortune for myself."
Jazz president Randy Rigby says he is a pretty lucky guy in general. Jazz hope so. He'll represent the 14th-slotted Jazz in Tues. lottery
Spurs were really good and had Memphis flustered but Memphis was awful defensively slow on everything . Tuesday will be different
Spurs #1 play all year - Parker left sideline in early O right hand driblle off Duncan left elbow pick -- didn't run it once in 1st Q.
re-watching Spurs Griztoues 1st -- WOW Tony Allen was gettng torched everytime he gambled. No man's land defense = 3 pt from Spurs
The book about the Lakers I would like to see is the one by Karl Malone and his season in L.A. No agendas.
Tip Off is coming - I am still struggling with the new Google plus and hangouts
More scoring chances in 75 minutes of Real Salt Lake-Chivas match tonight than I saw in 5 matches as temporary beat writer last year.

This is a test and if you get then you will know that Tip Off will be at 8am on Monday morning
Tweeps listening to Memphis radio is this call on Manu shooting as bad as they are saying. Hasseltine going nuts. Love his passion
Spurs looked more relaxed than they did vs. Golden State ... like pressure is off now that they've reached West finals. Make sense?
Just watched Preakness for the first time. Surprised not more criticism of the ride Joel Rosario gave Orb. Wonder if he rides next time?
Final four teams in the NBA Playoffs rank 1st, 7th, 18th and 19th in offense
Final four teams in playoffs rank 1,2,3 and 7th in defense.

At halftime, 2-seed East lucky to be tied 0-0 with Region 8 No. 4 Timpanogos. Two huge saves from GK Phillip Padilla.
A new contender: "Everything we're doing we're complicating by being stupid."
Coach quote of the day: "They've got to know that I'm pissed off."
Lloyd has a better chance of scoring a date with Mary than the Jazz do of winning this NBA Draft Lottery.
Utahns who drive up to Idaho to buy those lottery tickets have about the same chance of winning as the Jazz do in this NBA Draft Lottery.
Jazz president Randy Rigby will be on stage in NYC to represent Utah in Tuesday's NBA Draft Lottery. GM Dennis Lindsey will also be there.
Totally legit question. Every year i hear big man going to work with Hakeem. Have any of them gotten considerably better?
Also amazing articles about 1972 WCF Bucks v Lakers series. Jabbar v. Wilt and West v. Oscar.
My apologies no tip off this morning
The Jazz team led by Deron, Boozer, AK, Memo had Fish and Harp as vets similiar to Landry and Jack - Jazz weren't same without verts W's ..
This Warriors team reminds me a lot of Deron and Boozer Jazz team that lost in WCF but never returned
Sorry no Tip Off tomorrow

The Spurs offensive adjustments are fabulous basketball
Spent the day in Colorado for the ribbon cutting of our new dealership, Larry H. Miller Nissan Highlands Ranch. Thanks to all where there.
Durant gone, at least there's Curry to watch. And those people from Indiana...uh...I forget the names, but you know.
Glass is best known around here for being the agent of former Jazz center Mark Eaton.
Aldridge talked to agent Keith Glass, who is apparently advising Sloan. Very interesting aspect to this story. Sloan has never has an agent.
David Aldridge reporting Jerry Sloan has decided he is not interested in the Bucks job.
Heads up to all Military Personnel - Salt Lake Bees are giving you a free ticket to this Saturday's game and 1/2 tix for your family. Enjoy
