Live Tip Off is coming but Google + is new today and I am having a hard time launching the Tip Off
Live Tip Off at 8 am - Topics - the greatest hoop junkie discovery - Is Al Jefferson efficient or inefficent - Playofs and updated FAgents
Charles Barkely "Al Jefferson would be unreal in Chicago. I would go to war with Noah and Jefferson"
Still debated - What is the value of high usage rate inefficient player on team that doesn't have other players to take those possessions
Debate is over high usage rate player with low efficiency hurts your team if others can take those possessions - Monta Ellis and Rudy Gay
Reminder after the Rudy Gay trade Memphis had the 3rd best record in the NBA and only lost 1 game at home. (Miami and Denver were better)
In Zach Randolph's career in Memphis he was 37 of 39 from the with :24 or less seconds left game within 3 points before those 2 misses
Interesting Durant's miss came from his worst shooting spot this season. See shot chart http://t.co/LomImQwnAF
Last time Zach Randolph missed a free throw in the last :24 of a game within 3 was 2010-11 season. He had made at least 14 straight
Hollins wishes he had the timeout he used at the end of the 3rd quarter
Ronnie Brewer beat by a Gasol again - joke for Jazz fans only
Derrick Fisher with some pretty big late game blunders.

Remember that timeout by Memphis. Not sure I like it with :32 seconds left in quarter - work the clock it is 1 possession each way
In every timeout Scott Brooks talks about running what is not being talked about is Memphis transition defense is GREAT
Probably a foul on Wade, which is why Callahan wanted to give Bulls the ball.
Per Kings' staying in Sacramento: Waiting for ESPN shot of wildly cheering crowd in New Delhi.
I spent a decade of my life communicating and making friends with Seattle's basketball fans. My thoughts are with you today. One day soon.
Jazz were in SacTown (and got thumped) for celebrations/rallies the past two years. Watch Utah be the Kings' home-opening foe next fall.
Now the NBA Board of Governors need to vote Maloofs off the island and get some real owners in Sacramento. They also need a team in Seattle.
But seriously someone needs to come out with stuff thats long but fitting...and if there's something like that already let me know
Free Agency Manifesto is a work in progress, only gone through Atlantic and Central Divisions. Trying to do a Division a day hopefully
I dreamed the Jazz drafted Kelly Olynyk last night. Luckily I woke up before realizing I was only wearing underwear at the press conference.
From a Bucks or Jazz fan? "I can't express how much we need him. It would change the atmosphere here and give us fans hope. Been too long."
I hope Milwaukee radio listeners weren't startled by my pyramid of empty Diet Coke cans as it crashed down on my desk during the interview.

There it is - vintage Spurs. Impressive performance from the old guard. Big deal that Game 7 is not till Sunday
Manu misses a wide open 3 and then two free throws. He hit those like he usually does and its ball game. Spurs aren't right
If Spurs win tonight Pop should let the guys rest till Game 7 on Sunday. I am not kidding. No way they win this beat up in Oakland
Signature of the Spurs when they are on are those blink of an eye 14-2 run. Can't seem to do that right now. Not clicking at all
I have a new granddaughter! Ruby Jane Hawks was born this afternoon. 6 lbs 2 ozs, 18.5" long. Woohoo!
Why would Jerry Sloan or anybody else think they could win in Milwaukee? Check out Knicks-Pacers and remember: No. 2 and No. 3 in the East.
Marco Belinelli and Tony Allen are both free agents. Profitable week for the two of them
I stumbled on this research due to comment by @billsimmons about Chandler. I am very surprised by what I found. Changes my opinion
Doing research on Derrick Favors minutes played and finding some stunning results
Love Mike Conley's play but how different is narrative if Westbrook is healthy - Last 12 games v. Westbrook Conley shooting 38%
If my son was Andrew Wiggins I would tell him hire an agent and a trainer and train all year for NBA. No way I risk $ by playng in NCAA
It is time to stop ripping OKC and the Knicks and start talking about the defense of Memphis and Indiana
The help defense by Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol on Kevin Durant was amazing.
Guess the day of running a play to get a game-winning shot is over. Just iso and go 1-on-1. Golden State last night, Memphis tonight.

After 7 innings, Chosen Few 20 Sea Donkeys, 12. Don't ask why I'm at a rec game. I don't know.
Is that Marc Gasol's way of showing that Ibaka should not be 1st team all-defense
Deng Deng played at Granger, was tight with Corbin, but didn't play senior year after being kicked off team, transferring to Cottonwood.
(2/2) Today I start a three week series at Locked on Jazz looking at those 16 teams and how they made a huge defensive jump.
(1/2) Over the last 20 years plus in the NBA 16 teams have made dramatic defensive improvements from one year to the next.
Live tip off at 6:40 am. Topics Dennis Schroeder, and new GM in Philly impact on Horny, and Gasol's defense

Maybe that was a poor way of saying you have to admire Curry playing -- and playing well -- with an obviously injured ankle.
A sprained ankle isn't ACL surgery, but Bulls' fans are noticing what Stephen Curry is doing, aren't they?
In the final 3:40 of regulation and OT, Golden State outscored San Antonio, 21-5. Duncan 0-5 from the field.
Spurs might still beat Golden State, but chance for some rest is now gone. OT loss today big impact on next round, if they get that far.
Warriors are going to have tough time replacing Jarrett Jack. Perfect complement to Curry and Kay. Reminds me of Fisher leaving Jazz.
Unfriendly schedule for Spurs in this round 4 games in 7 days with a night to day game 3 to 4. No resting allowed.
If Duncan takes 22 shots in this series, the Spurs can't win. Warriors needed to hide Curry on defense and the Spurs let them do it.
When did Duncan and Ginobili turn 50?
That's the best Mark Jackson could come up with?
Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there!!! And a special Happy Mother's Day to the perfect fan, my dearest mother! Love you!
Now I can't wait to find out what I'm giving my mom.
I was excited to find out I gave my wife some sweet-looking sandals for Mother's Day.
Happy Mother's Day!
