Rooting for Lakers/Sixers/Knicks top 3 for maximum outrage
Daily verse: http://t.co/Tfiqkx5O72
Aw, man. Folks have no chill http://t.co/ezBn1c6PhR
I don't get GMSM feeling "desperate" to justify RG3 investment. Not his pick. Which makes this Scherff take scary. http://t.co/PaActRV4E4
How l feel when my wifi isn't working. http://t.co/9wtinaUBX7
Sometimes it takes sadness to know happiness, noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence.
The number of 'followers' you have does not make you better than anyone else. Hitler had millions, and Jesus had 12.
Gooden: "I think u've found a position for these tweeners. You call them stretch 4s now. So thank God for the tweeners. I think we made it."
I was just told this. “Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die”. Words to live by.
Wizards will be back at Las Vegas summer league. July 10-20 at UNLV.
Nene on Pierce: "He is the Truth (and) the answer the way he makes shots. .. .At the last moment of the game...helps you do the magic work."
NBA announces Las Vegas summer league runs July 10-20 at UNLV. Wizards going once again, though super doubtful anyone on current roster.
Wittman on how his last 48 hours have been: "It just sucks."
Beal: "I think if I can put together a full season, I can be one of the elite players in this league."
Gortat referred to Gooden as "Drewski" once in his exit interview.
Humphries started working on 3-point shot a lot at practice the last month or so.
Humphries on whether he will start shooting 3s next season: "Yeah, man, you've seen me. I'm out there on fire, right? You seen me."
Also no media exit interviews with Seraphin or Webster.
Pierce isn't doing exit interviews with the media today.
Drew Gooden said he would love to return, but he understands the business. He's no longer receiving that amnesty money from the Bucks.
Just finding out we're not getting Pierce today. He's gone. For today, at least.
Nene on playing more 5: “I hope not.” Said he’d be ok with coming off the bench tho.
We’re also reaching the point where everyone wants to go smaller, so finding undervalued players to make it possible is harder.
Really interesting to see how both Washington and Indiana retool their rosters to play smaller. Because that requires a full commitment.
Wondering If Bradley Beal is over the series loss yet? "I hope nobody wins (the title)." Thinks Wiz should have downed Hawks 4-1.
Beal said the Wizards should’ve beaten the Hawks 4-1.
Paul Pierce just arrived. Wearing a Nats hat.
No buyouts in the plans, MacLellan said, though he hesitated. Given a desire to pursue top-line RW, trade is probably a first option.
MacLellan said he understands that it's not a complete success after the second round, but it represents a step in the right direction.
Asked how his first year went, MacLellan took a second, paused and wiped his eyes. He was proud of how the whole thing went.
Butler on why Otto shined in playoffs: "Pressure busts pipes or makes diamonds. I think he just responded to the pressure of the playoffs."
MacLellan: "I would say the next three, four years, for sure" is probably the window for Ovechkin to win a Stanley Cup.
MacLellan believes Burakovsky can be a natural center, but if he's going to be a top-six forward, it will be on the wing.
MacLellan on Glencross trade: "If we win that game 1-0, it's a great trade."
Schmidt and Orlov are in the plans for next year. Green's situation dictates Gleason's return.
If I’m the Rockets, I would stick to mostly traditional matchups and have Ariza guard Klay. Play improved when they did that vs. the Clips
MacLellan said it would be a priority to find a top-line right wing, but it might be more easily found in the trade market, not free agents.
MacLellan said he's going to remain in contact with Green. Much of it will come down to money for a fifth defenseman.
Gortat said he's going to play for Poland this summer for possibly the last time.
Both Gortat and Butler said the Wizards would still be playing if Wall hadn’t gotten hurt.
Gortat said he loves playing with Nene but wants to play with a stretch-4 more often next season.
By 16-17, MacLellan wants Wilson to be a top-six forward. Up to Wilson if it happens next year. Needs more puck control.
Gortat: Admitted to some personal problems during the middle the season that dropped his play. Would like playing with a stretch-4 more.
Players comng through for final interviews. Will update throughout the day.
MacLellan said team wants to bring Beagle back. Johansson, Kuznetsov are RFAs, also in the plans.
MacLellan said he's open to a bridge deal or a long-term deal with Holtby, a RFA.
Gortat said he had some personal issues he didn't want to get into that sidetracked him during the season.
Sign of times or slow news day? There's 20+ media members here for Wizards exit interview. Probably 3 times amount from last year.
That was a strong finish. Matthew Weiner certainly wasn't Lost with his plan.
Not gonna lie. Kept waiting for Krishna Paul Kinsey.
My main Mad Men react: I now feel really bad for the bottle of pickles in my refrigerator I haven't touched in weeks.
Is that Helen "Supergirl" Slater??
When Kanye checks out what his performance looked & sounded like on ABC, he really might burn down something: http://t.co/H5PPhIH8B0
