As many people begin to celebrate Memorial Day weekend let's remember why we're having this weekend...
Not sure what went down in Orlando but all of us in the NBA broadcasting fraternity respect Matt Guokas Hoping to see him somewhere in 13-14
Word to Herald is Doc 90-10 to come back but may still choose to sit out. He won't coach elsewhere -- and C's wouldn't let him.
Chalmers will start
Erik Spoelstra on Mario Chalmers, "He's ready to go."
In other words, no excuse for lower bowl to be less than full at tip of an 8:30 game
For those worried about I-95: I drove from Lauderdale and got to arena in 33 minutes.
Erik Spoelstra confirms that Mario Chalmers (shoulder) is ready to go.
Comment sections: The gift that keeps on giving...ignorance
May 28th,100 holes in1 day, in support of SBHA of Ontario! Going to be a great day!
Everyone's talking about Guokas' unbiased nature in Twitter tributes to his work ... thing is, that's rarely seen as a plus by teams.
THERE HAVEN'T BEEN ANY NEW DWIGHT HOWARD RUMORS IN LIKE 12 HOURS. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?! DB
According to several news outlets, I-95 south is now re-opened....
Some folks have suggested SVG as a replacement for Guokas. (1/2)
Got an email from "British Holding Company" with subject line, "Good news." Showed up in spam, which was disappointing.
In '06, the Heat collected 15-Strong cards Last year, check marks on a trophy. In this title run, the Heat clearly are collecting testicles.
HEAT fans attending Game 2 of the ECF are advised southbound lanes of I-95 R closed; adjust travel schedules & seek alternate routes 2 AAA.
The plan has remained the same from Jump Street. Blacknall would prefer to make his decision before his senior season begins in September.
Matt Guokas needs to be broadcasting games next year. One of the absolute best.
Remember when Fall Out Boy performed at the NBA All-Star Game? Yeah. That was the worst. DB
The other thing about SF: if u have Bud, Shabazz/karasev, DWill there, u could let AK go if he opts out & use $ for a mayo, redick, Kmart
Clyde helped launch Delta's new JFK Terminal 4 (joined by Bloomberg, Keith Hernandez, Adam Graves & Bernie Williams). http://t.co/OvboSImFat
The Hangover 3 was just awful. Brutal.
Kinda sucks when you write a column calling out biased announcers & then one of the best & unbiased doesn't get his contract renewed.
That Matt Guokas is no longer an NBA broadcaster is an absolute travesty. Unbiased, a pro's pro and a non-homer.
Not a League Pass devotee, but am p. sure that Matt Guokas was dropping points per possession on telecasts before most other analysts
One of the things I respect about Matt G. and David S. is that they're not homers. Too much of local NBA broadcasting is overtly biased.
Great day to hang out at Lincoln Park Zoo. http://t.co/Ue7d24Orcj
Play-by-play man David Steele is returning and will be calling Magic games in 2013-14.
Guokas (and Steele, who will be back) are consistently mentioned at or near the top when nat'l columnists name favorite local broadcasters
Matt Goukas is one of the best analysts on League Pass. Unbiased, smart, funny, reads everything. Hard to understand why ORL would ditch him
It can be a flagrant and it can be a flop. The flop came after the flagrant, and was apparently a waste of $5,000.
I always learned something new when I listened to Matt Guokas call a game. Sad that he won't be back next year.
Loved that story. Reminded me of home, where, when the weather turns nasty, Oklahomans turns to one man -- Gary England -- for guidance.
And only the Lakers can give him the five-year max. Doesn't matter that the Rockets/Mavs/Hawks/Warriors would. They can't.
This week's EW has a feature in which the Heat's in-house DJ explains his music choices. Why not Spurs or Grizz?!
Also the Brook/Hibbert max is the rookie deal max. Not something Dwight is going to get offered by someone.
A 27-year-old who had one bad year coming off back surgery hasn't definitively "already peaked."
The more I think about it, the more I bet the Wolves go for a SF type or a big if they keep that No. 9 overall pick
The previous clip came three minutes into the game. Fatigue shouldn't come into play. He just doesn't give proper effort.
Billy King has a pretty extensive track record in the draft as a decision-maker, and he's proven that talent will always trump a roster need
One thing you can count on from the Nets: they'll take the top talent on their board when their pick comes up next month.
To my knowledge, Dwight's camp has never given slightest indication he wants to join the Warriors. The GSWs should accept that & move on.
NBA announced that Tony Allen has been $5,000 for that magnificent acting job he pulled late in Game 2 against the Spurs on Tuesday night.
Watching more Anthony Bennett now. He has so much offensive talent. But this next clip I'm going to show you is what scares me about him.
Sounds like Kings trainer Daniel Shapiro has taken a job at the University of Washington. He's originally from the area.
Before any movie is made a script is written.
Dwight is a very good and unique player. I'm saying his theatrics screw teams up--before they ever know if they're getting him.
One Dwight Howard thought: The Warriors shouldn't and probably don't want to get into the romance-Dwight circus. It's destabilizing.
CP24 says social media is abuzz about the Ford scan.../click.
Virtus Roma wins Game 1 82-75 vs Cantù after an overtime
Almost one month 'til the Lakers don't draft in the first round...
Come on Internet let Rob Ford go, Rondo's going to be on Fashion Police tonight.
Chris Bosh added the 3 and LeBron James has game-winning layup. Imagine Z-Bo in a world where Marc Gasol can drag a big to the corner.
Marc Gasol, LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan, Serge Ibaka -- bigs I'd love to see master the 3 this summer. Game-changing.
Rajon Rondo on E!'s Fashion Police tonight (10 p.m.) Release notes he'll have a "much-beloved coat pulled straight out of his closet."
Again: many thanks to city hall reporters. You've had a crappy week. You're all heroes. Or friends of extortionists. Or both?
Now would have been the time to can Colangelo, Raptors.
Also, a good bet by Ford that education system is so crappy that general public wouldn't understand use of tenses.
This is going to end in some form of awful. All that's left are the details.
Spurs have attempted 54 3s in the series, Grizzlies only 29. Someone should write a book called "the Tony Allen spacing problem."
To be fair, Ford is living proof you can do anything if you put your mind to it.
I'm moving to Vaughan. Less Ford, more ambiguous claims on being birthplace of Andrew Wiggins.
Sorry about me...everybody....I'm not doing well
Know how many 3s Grizzlies starters attempted in Game 1? ZERO. Just 6 in Game 2. Tay yet to attempt one in WCF. Marc and Z-Bo need space!
Roy Hibbert said he didn't retaliate Battier's knee. Well, maybe he did a little. http://t.co/kaiJc6WFQb
Well, that should certainly shut down all inquiries.
Let's talk about the important thing: the high school football team.
Going on @knbr 680 AM with Fitz and Brooks in Bay Area at 1 pm PST.
Remember, if flagrant was called on Mahinmi at time, Heat would have retained possession. Instead LeBron missed both FTs and game went OT.
Don't want to sound like a Knicks apologist, but this nonsense about no ability to drive and dumpoff - didn't they throw about 500 lob-dunks
Jose Iglesias is in the Sox lineup today, playing third, hitting last.
Oh mayor, my mayor!
Hoping for Ford's statement just to be "SUBWAYS!"
I'm sorry everyone.... I really feel bad tweeting this. Have a good lunch! http://t.co/jeo4NLQjTH
My kingdom for an "I'm just a basketball player," NBA interview supercut.
A Heat media guy is being interviewed by Mike Francesa on WFAN in New York and I believe he just proposed to LeBron James.
The NBA has upgraded an Ian Mahinmi shooting foul on LeBron from early 4Q of Game 1 to a flagrant.
I don't get this Michigan weather.
As far as Groin-Gate goes, crickets from the league office regarding Norris Cole and Shane Battier and their target practice.
The Ian Mahinmi foul was a grab of LeBron James' arm that the Sun Sentinel has learned has been upgraded by NBA to a Flagrant 1.
Sun Sentinel learns following NBA review of fouls in Game 1, the upgrade to flagrant is ... Mahinmi foul on LeBron 11:38 left in the fourth.
"I love this opportunity. I would have taken job if I had been offered $5. Who could say no to this great challenge?" Ujiri told Denver Post
Further to that last re-tweet, definitely seems like the challenge outweighs the money in these decisions for Masai ...
Cantù leading 30-42 in Rome at the end of first half. Serie A Playoff Semifinal Game 1
Masai's relationships in Toronto are strong. This is the 1 team, IMO, he'd consider leaving for. Moneys a factor, but not the lone factor.
...Jimmy is still under consideration, the same person told me. Camp takes place late July in Vegas, right after summer league.
As he indicated at the Berto the day after the Bulls' season ended, Taj will be at USA Basketball mini-camp, according to a source...
Seriously, is anyone really pumped to watch The Rock, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker race cars?
Begin your Memorial Day weekend with us on the BIG SHOW today 2-6pm. Give us an ear on the way home or as you head up Nort!
Should Ujiri take Toronto job, unclear what fate of Dwane Casey would be. Casey started NBA coaching career under Denver's George Karl
Several teams have requested permission to interview Shaw, but the Pacers and Shaw have mutually decided to deny those requests for now.
The people that found the picture are bringing it to him personally and are going to help in the clean-up. Sometimes people are awesome.
Stanley on Shaw's candidacy for vacancies: ”Any interviews will be conducted when the season is over, if there is still availability."
I recall Bill Wennington telling me how crazy it was to be on Phil's teams as he was always playing mindgames. Now fans get a sense of that
Demarcus is on hold. quick poll- do we have him sing for game 3? record is 8-1.
I'm not rushing to see Fast Six. I live my life a quarter-mile at a time.
Person in Broken Arrow found a picture in their backyard (100 miles from OKC) and put it on Facebook. Turns out it's of my friend Mike. Wow.
Free agency is more stressful than fun.
Philadelphia GM Sam Hinkie is moving slowly on coaching search, league sources tell Y! So far, focus has been on structuring front office.
We'll see who is in & out tomorrow night. The game w/ San Jose is one the TXA21 broadcasts...will be on at 7:30 from Frisco
Bottom line: IND needs to do a MUCH better job of containing P&Rs & must make some open shots. Stephenson has missed his last 10 threes.
Also: watching me use a Mac is like watching an 80 year old go through an airport security line.
Phil: "Stevie Kerr said he would love to see the effect you would have...seeing you coach big guys like Pau+Howard."
Jeanie, Rambis, Jim Cleamons tell Phil "you should not stay away...your influence is needed...brings another element to the game."
Shorter version of the Beal/McLemore comparison, to me: McLemore's the more efficient scorer, Beal's the better playmaker.
Have a column coming late-afternoon. Wrote it on my internet-broken Thinkpad, saved on a USB drive, mailed it from my wife's Mac. ONIONS!!!!
Cart before horse here, but wonder if Raptors trade into draft to land Nigerian-born Giannis Antetokoumpo, who Masai is very familiar with
I lean Beal over McLemore because he was a year younger and a more complete player, but it's very close.
Really curious to see what people think of this question: who is a better prospect between Beal and McLemore?
Media moving season continues. Seems like this isn't usually until July/August. Congrats to all on the new gigs.
Thank you so much to everyone for the kind words and support. They really do fuel me to be better and keep me excited. THANKS!
With all this talk about Battier knee up, perhaps it's time to pay homage to Super John Williamson, who had ultimate knee-up shooting style.
Z-Bo just told this young lad: "You can jump higher than me." Might be right. http://t.co/NzIYwX7Vg2
Mr. @AlKaponeMemphis rockin the Whoop That Trick shirt!!! http://t.co/nGg4X1t1MB
Amanda Bynes makes the Lakers' defense seem fully functional. DB
It's all very interesting, is all.
BC and Ujiri had great working relationship. Leiweke said he did not want BC involved in basketball decisions except when asked.
Northlake Physical Therapy (Lake Oswego) is handling my rehab on the ruptured patellar tendon. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
Words with Friends is fun until you have 17 games going.
