If you follow recently signed Pacers guard Donald Sloan on twitter, you’ve likely noticed that his tweets are repetitive. Nearly every morning, the 25-year-old sends out the same six-character tweet: I’m Up. “I’m up and at it,” said Sloan of its meaning. “Whenever I wake up, I send that out.” As for the origin: ”I saw a guy off of 30 Rock and he said it for like a year straight. That’s all he tweeted – ‘I’m up’ – every morning he got up. I was like, ‘I’ll take that,’ and then I started doing it. And other people I know are starting to do it now. It’s just — I’m up, starting the day. Get it going.” Pacers.com

Cavs coach Byron Scott said there is a leader in the backup point guard spot. Of course, he wouldn't say who it was, but it sounds like it's Donald Sloan. It doesn't appear as if both Sloan and Jeremy Pargo can make the final roster. Sulia

There is a leader in the competition for the backup point guard position with the Cavaliers, but coach Byron Scott won’t divulge who it is and he certainly isn’t ready to name a winner in the race between Donald Sloan and Jeremy Pargo. With about a week left in training camp, one of the looming decisions is whether to carry two or three point guards. The Cavs must release two more players before the start of the season, but those cuts aren’t expected to come until after Tuesday’s preseason finale. Akron Beacon Journal
