Someone is testing out the sound before tonight's Fleetwood Mac concert by repeating, 'Marcia, Marcia, Marcia." Old school all the way.
Making the best Halloween out of a bad situation: friend's dog has to wear a cone for a week - so they made a martini http://t.co/mrbFTTeJHM
Is LA still a Lakers town? Or have Clippers made inroads? "When they get about 13 banners, then it will be a rivalry," Byron Scott said
Beverley answered a couple quick questions- said he felt good today but would see how he was doing tomorrow.
Theo is cold-blooded, man.

Crucial basket by Zavackas who ties the game!
Beverley did not practice today but did work out- he will be evaluated tomorrow. For what it's worth, he seems to be in very good spirits.
hard to be humble when you stuntin on a humungotron
To paraphrase Duane Kuiper the other day--you've got to know who doesn't mind Twitter arguments and who doesn't lose them.
Great 3p by Spanoulis! 72-72!
Here’s what I want to know: where did Brook get a Power Rangers costume to fit a 7’2” man? And how much did he have to shell out for it?
Butler contract talks still at a stalemate. Suddenly, it doesn't appear to be bluffing at this point.
Hell, tons of people went ballistic a few years ago when I said I'd take Anthony Davis as a Kentucky freshman over DLee.
Dion Sims out and Colledge and Misi questionable for Dolphins for Sunday.
The Vinnie Verno picks were Oregon -8, Ole Miss -2, La Tech -7, Ark St -17, and Georgia -11. Lazarus week.
King Rice and staff have had success going into Philly, evidenced by Zac Tillman and Austin Tlghman. Traore would fill a need, so we'll see
Pat Beverley is currently running on the treadmill and is listed as day to day.
I just saw an pic that I legit swore was a Halloween mask and then I realized it was a pic of LaToya Jackson.
Bayern Munich with a come back with two three-pointers made by Robin Benzing: 12-0 run. Milano leads 21-18
Also, keep an eye on teams drafting nearby guys in the late rounds...saves money for training camp flights according to one source.
Source indicates extension talks end between Bucks and Brandon Knight's agent. Knight will be RFA after current season.
Lot's of interest from D-League teams regarding Carrick Felix. Source says over half the league's teams have inquired.
Cowboys list QB Tony Romo (back) and LG Ronald Leary (groin) as questionable. Neither practiced this week.
WHAT OLIMPIA MILANO! 17-2 in Munich after five minutes
Talks between Bulls & Jimmy Butler on extension not progressing. But Bulls have beaten deadline buzzer in past.
On deadline day to reach an agreement on a contract extension with Klay Thompson, his camp reports no news in talks with the Warriors.
Either way, you look at that projected GSW '15-16 payroll and you have to imagine they'll be looking to move Iguodala or Lee relatively soon
Sloukas makes it from Piraeus! He uses these shots...
Worth remembering Bulls typically frown upon giving player options. They did this summer to Hinrich, Gasol. On table in Butler talks.
Warriors staffer Michael Leslie pulls off a Halloween ode to the team's new coach. http://t.co/LIQobSstlR
On Klay Thompson deadline: I've said it before--Just not a lot of incentive for GSWs to meet a max price now.
Milwaukee's extension talks with Brandon Knight have ended, sources tell Yahoo Sports. Knight plans to enter restricted free agency in July.
At the end of the day, I don't think Leonard goes anywhere or is affected negatively by this - but don't like it anyway.
Leonard changed the Spurs' fortunes completely. Why not change his with life-long security as soon as you can? He earned it.
Soulja Boy and Big Baby have a song together on the Full Court Press album
There are other ways Spurs could have preserved max contract spot while paying Leonard now. Not fair IMO that they decided to make him wait.
The first line of the Lakers' game notes sent to Clippers beat writers today reads "Welcome to Los Angeles!" Thanks. It was such a long trip
Spurs save $9M in potential cap room by not extending Kawhi. Manu's cap hold=$10M. I would have renounced Manu later, paid Kawhi now myself.
Awesome. Mount St. Joe's game will be on Fox Sports Go online/app, even for users w/out service. Also Fox Sports Regional Networks.
Rick Carlisle on Anthony Davis comparisons: "He's pretty unique. Some [Kevin] Garnett, but he's even longer than Garnett."
Ante Delas hits the glass and makes the three!!! Really weird!
Plus, what happens if Marc Gasol wants to take his time making his decision and Leonard gets early offer sheet? What then?
I've said it a million times, titles aren't primary factor in a rivalry. Need history, bad blood. All-LA playoff series would be a start.
After his performance in the last two Finals, I thought Kawhi was worthy of the Kyrie Irving day 1 extension.
LRTs: No apple slices/religious pamphlets. CANDY. I had young-looking friends frosh year of college who went trick-or-treating. Why? CANDY
I get the Spurs' reasoning for waiting to extend Kawhi, it's just that I hate to see a player who has earned a raise have to wait.
#Cavs at Bulls, 8 tonight. Can Cavs recover from downer in season opener? clevelandcavaliersblog.blogspot.com/2014/10/cavs-a…

The D-League Draft is Saturday. I think there will be some good stories coming through the Westchester Knicks as visitors.
I love how much Paul Pierce loves Halloween.

Anyone else have the mopes in your neighborhood who gave out change instead of Halloween candy? Change? I'm 8, what am I doing 36 cents?
Byron Scott said Lakers-Clippers won't be a rivalry until Clippers have 13 NBA titles. But they would be behind Lakers' 16 titles anyway

Tobias Harris' camp has tried to re-engage extension talks with Orlando, but there's no traction from the Magic, league sources tell RealGM.
Raptors were talking up Nikola Vucevic and challenge Valanciunas will have. Still, JV 13.7/11/62% against him last year vs. 16.3/8/54%

Byron Scott steadfast that Lakers/Clips won't be a rivalry until LAC have 13 championships.
Nets backup center to Mason Plumlee is Jerome Jordan. They could really use Andray Blatche.
Meanwhile, I think Bumgarner and Posey might be throwing a bullpen session on a SF side street somewhere.
Ryan Kelly hopes to get a practice on Monday
Kris Humphries tells us he might not get feeling back in his pinky for two weeks to six months. That's a crazy range. Kris agrees.
Spurs won’t give up Kawhi Leonard, but I’ll give it a 1.7 percent chance he comes to the Lakers. Because Cavaliers.
And no, I don’t think this current Cavs super team is an “underdog” by any means. But the franchise/city wears that as an emblem.
Now that the Giants have won three times in five years, time to give up on that San Jose fight with the A's.
Don’t care if Kawhi Leonard will be a restricted free agent in seven months. Started the hashtag today because he’s my 2nd favorite player.
Never knew a/b DTLA’s arts district when I lived in LA before. Read a/b it in GQ. Visited. Fell in love. Signed a lease there today. Stoked.
3 reasons LeBron is loved again: 1. Underdogs gets more love than favs 2. Going home admitted mistake, country forgives 3. Re-worked image
Kawhi will be a restricted FA next year. His agent: "There will be a lot of contract scenarios available to us and we will explore them all"
The Spursy thing ever would be to let Kawhi walk and still win.
(The plot probably isn't thickening though. Educated guess is that Spurs match any offer to Kawhi and he remains with San Antonio.)
With 10 hours before the deadline, the Spurs reportedly will not offer Kawhi an extension. He'll be a restricted FA. And the plot thickens.
Kawhi's agent on extension discussion: "We have great respect for the Spurs organization, but here, we simply agree to disagree."
Barring Alec Burks taking unexpected turn in either direction deal is within a few million on either side of being market value over term
It was 30 years ago today I first reported for work at the Star Tribune. Here's the first time I covered the Wolves http://t.co/YWnYHYaCRd
Both Afflalo and Wesley are free agents this year. They will represent what the replacement cost on Alec Burks would have been.
Shooting guards contracts - Joe J (23.1) E. Gordon (14.8) Harden (14.6) DeRozan (9.5) Lance (9) Afflalo (7.5) Wesley (7.2) JJ (7) Meeks (6)
Paul Pierce is Captain America for Halloween. http://t.co/V3f63Fzu7P
Oxford for the weekend. Ole Miss-Auburn. First time at the Grove. Let's goooooooo
NBA Fan Night - vote is in - Cleveland Cavaliers at Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday will air on NBA TV
Also with Burks, I think we know a bit more about what Terrence Ross is going to eventually get. I’d estimated about $10M/per for Ross
Bulls obviously burned last time they had player reach restricted agency in Asik.
Alec Burks is now making more money than DeMar DeRozan. I like Burks a lot as a player, but, he did well.
Y'all ranking chocolate candy implies you don't shove all of them in your mouth at the same time, which sounds kinda crazy.
A guy in my office dressed as the Unabomber. A lady asked if he was supposed to be Trayvon Martin I think those are called teachable moments
Cibona Zagreb has ended its loan deal with GB guard Devon van Oostrum - will return to Baskonia.

Great line on “big speech guys” on teams: "I wasn't going to pitch that well ... but when Hunter started yelling." - Gary on @knbr
The extension for Alec Burks starts in 15-16 so depending on the smoothing of the cap it might be 1 year over pay 3 year under pay
What a backhanded winner by Milos. He serves for match now against Federer on Sportsnet One.
Lionel Hollins on Brook Lopez's health: "I was optimistic everyday. When he doesn’t come out and practice, I’m not optimistic any more."
