Ya boy got Stevie tickets
New Thunder podcast coming a little later today.
Another opportunity for me to beg Basketball Twitter to nickname Glenn Robinson III "Lil' Dog." It just makes too much sense.
Has anyone conducted the analysis yet proving or disproving that the NFL is facing a spike in criminal activity over prior years?
Sorry, Anheuser-Busch's statement seems hollow to me. The company says it doesn't want minors drinking its beer, too.
T. Zeller, the No. 17 pick in '12 draft, didn't work out for Cs who had No. 21 and 22 picks. "I was hoping I wouldn't go that low," he said.
Sounds like none of the schools involved have a clue where Chris Silva will end up on Friday
People get so defensive on those 3 issues & begin engaging in such primitive defense mechanisms that the conversation ends before it begins.
Told GR-III turned down a partial guarantee a couple weeks ago. Curious to hear how much he got guaranteed. Yes, deal's done. Yahoo had 1st.
Try and have a reasonable conversation about changes with regard to guns, alcohol, or football in the U.S. and prepare to be decimated.
New Celtics center Tyler Zeller atones for breaking a box of macaroni at Merrimack Valley Food Bank: http://t.co/ZSrp7nyKhy
Zeller: "we're probably not going to win 60 games this year and set records ... I think we have a great opportunity to make the playoffs"
Bad PR is whatever. The NFL makes too much money to care. Once the big sponsors start threatening to pull out, it's on.
Zeller said one of his goals is starting. "But I have a lot of work to go to earn that spot and I expect to have to earn it."
Alcohol is a factor in so many cases of interpersonal violence and yet now an alcohol company is lecturing the NFL. That's rich.

In New Orleans team history, Anthony Davis is also already eighth in points (2261), eighth in rebounds (1195) and ninth in steals (164)

Reed blew off question on whether city assistance would mean a new arena.
Press conference is concluding. Will have a quick story shortly.

Dominque Wilkins will get a statue on March 6, 2015.
Reed press conference has turned into a plea for Braves to give city departure date. Harsh words.
Psyched to revisit this in five years to see which part of it is retroactively hilarious: http://t.co/C6Dl2QynnW
I'm getting some great questions in, MFFLs. Get on Cyber Dust now and hit me up.
DORTMUNDDDDDDDDDDD LET’S GO (am i doing this right?)
Did Zeller drop and spill a box of macaroni at the food bank? Yes. Yes he did.
Reed: Multiple offers to sell Turner Field but no departure date from Hawks.
Reed: We can sell Turner Field as an asset to help keep Hawks in ATL.
For the record, it took 17 days for Lache Seastrunk to land with a team, and even then, it was a team's practice squad.
Reed: "We have pretty good capacity" to offer assistance to Hawks in keeping team in ATL.
Zeller thinks the playoffs are a possibility.
Zeller said ideal playing weight for him is 260 or 270 pounds. Happy with the work he did in the weight room this summer.
Reed said he spoke with CEO Steve Koonin just before starting his current press conference.
It's a shame people don't mention Manu in the two-way shooting guard discussion. He's terrific, even at his age.
Zeller called Brad Stevens "brilliant." Has been really impressed by coach's basketball knowledge already.
Also "beer" and "moral code" almost are always in the same sentence. For me, "makes me forget my" is usually in between.
Reminder: My opinion doesn't matter and your opinion doesn't matter -- at least not when compared to the opinions of corporate sponsors
Eddie Pleasant didn’t receive his care package from the U of Oregon. “Tell them I didn’t receive mine for two years now. I expect double."
Dominque Wilkins says he does have interest in buying the Hawks.
When Nike and Anheuser Busch start sending messages, you can bet the NFL is listening. Does FedEx get involved?
Dominque Wilkins: "I think the organization has to be represented in the right way."
Reed says one of the prospective buyers is from China.
Heck of a goal for Dortmund...half-field run. Gunners almost survived to halftime to regroup but BVB deserved that
Reed says he will meet with NBA commissoner Adam Silver on Sept. 26,
Anheuser-Busch unhappy with how NFL has handled behavior problems, yet when is last time you've seen a fight at game between sober people?
Reed said he was "deeply affected" by Ferry comments.
Terry Collins wanted meaningful September baseball. The Mets gave their fans a meaningful logo controversy instead.
Reed: 'Highly unlikely" Hawks will move. Assistance from city will be needed.
The seat and back rest are all made out of basketball leather.
Reed: This will end up being terrific for the franchise.
And that was an awesome Dortmund goal.
Reed says he will not share name of those interested in buying Hawks.
In the lobby at Tim Duncan's Blackjack Speed Shop. http://t.co/ZkVzafahCN
Reed says Atlanta has interest keeping Hawks in city.
Joe Ingles' deal with Clippers will be for the minimum and is non-guaranteed, per NBA source.
NBA will hire firm to vet buyers. Reed has spoken to six perspective buyers.
Reed says Gearons and Seydel want to keep their shares.
Reed says Peskowitz intends to sell his share also.

An eye-opening development: Nike stores in Twin Cities have pulled all Adrian Peterson merch from shelves. Nike.
For every 3 Blazers make in 2014-15, they will plant 3 trees along Sandy River delta. Blazers hit franchise-record 770 threes in 2013-14

And I’m at Camden Yards, where the Orioles can clinch their 1st AL East title since ’97 tonight. I used to cover a team that used to do that
Missed the first 20 minutes of Champions League action but did so to satisfy a craving for a Peggy Sue BBQ sandwich
More like Bourissa D’ohtmund.
Random stat: Anthony Davis is already 2nd in New Orleans team history in career blocks (301). David West 435. History now dates to 2002-03
Ok, now it makes sense. If Floyd's tab was comped, then there wasn't a bill.
So there is a story about Floyd Mayweather not tipping at Rehab in Vegas, even though gratuity is already included in the bill?
Nash has also been in often, though not today. Lots of folks offering up how healthy/good he looks. (We'll see how it translates to camp)
Among those playing in a 5-on-5 scrimmage right now at the practice facility: Swaggy P, Sacre, Johnson, Kelly, Davis, Randle and Clarkson.
At Merrimack Valley food bank. Volunteer says Celtics should trade Rondo, have Zeller bring up ball. Zeller: "you don't want that."
Xavier Henry's continuing to rehabilitate his knee through basketball related activities, but isn't yet playing in games. His wrist is good.
Emailer says I'm not qualified to write about football because I've never played/coached in NFL. Actually, neither has Goodell or Jed York.
I would have just looked up the lyrics, but they were, oddly, not available anywhere on the interwebs.
Shaun Hagglund, owner of Fan HQ at Ridgedale, tells AP he pulled Peterson jerseys Friday night. Waiting to see process play out
Only team in my lifetime that was more fun to watch than the early-2000s Kings was peak 7SoL Suns.
Verizon still backing NFL and Peterson.
But ... Mylan EpiPen and Radisson both on record as severing/suspending ties since Adrian's child abuse charges surfaced.
Wheaties says most of its Adrian Peterson content has been off the site for months now as they have shifted to another marketing campaign
Wheaties spokesman tells AP that it removed Adrian from website because his contract expired, not because of charges.
One of the first Blazers games I went to when I was a kid was vs. Sacramento and I thought "Peja Stojakovic" was really fun to say.
I don't know how much longer we'll have independent journalism in the Bay Area, but I want to be doing it for as long as it exists.
Just so we're clear: we're talking about a man who inherited his father's massive wealth fronting a blues band.
When the issue got too big to contain--the Rice video--the NFL tried the same PR tricks and it wasn't enough. But they tried.
James Dolan Kazoo Solos, Ranked
In a convoluted way, this exposed the NFL's arrogance more than anything: They figured everyone would buy their PR because so many always do
Just got my daily reminder that people have no idea what "biased" means.
I've been asked if any Hornets preseason exhibitions will be televised. Nothing definitive, but sounds unlikely.
Personally, I still can't believe some great NFL reporters initially wholly bought the "due process" dodge in so many cases. Terrible.
Seeing a lot of criticism of the snuggly relationship between the NFL and some top reporters, which is worthy of examination...
The Celtics' new D-League hire coached 3 projected 2015 lottery picks at the 2014 Nike Hoop Summit (Mudiay, Towns & Lyles), so there's that.
FYI: I've seen Dolan's band play live twice, including night he guaranteed a win vs ATL. That same night I met MSG head honcho Irving Azoff
Headed out to St. Benedict's today to check out their young talent Eli Cain, Trevon Duval, Kamar McKnight, Nate Pierre, etc
See what I mean: a high ranking MSG employee just emailed me and said that Jim Dolan's first song was "very good."
Free agent E'Twaun Moore has signed a two-year deal with the Chicago Bulls, league source tells RealGM. First year's 50 percent guaranteed.
All these Bucks fans!!!!

MU men's soccer team ranked No. 19 by Soccer America entering Wednesday's Milwaukee Cup showdown vs. UWM. Game time 7 p.m. at Valley Fields.
Just met Fred Hoiberg. Told him I was raised Hawkeye, not Cyclone. He reminded me of Saturdays football game/Iowa disaster. Hoiberg 1, Me 0.
My lunch is gonna be so bad for me... http://t.co/pEXccm0sOT
Imagine having to work at MSG for Jim Dolan and telling him after every performance "you were great. That was awesome."
Always pegged him as more of a Creed guy.
That was also the track for their player intro for a good chunk of last year. Coincidence, or maybe Tim pulled rank?
I find myself feeling like an old fogey, yearning for the good ole days when the biggest NFL issue was Manti T'eo's FAKE girlfriend!
Classic -- on hold with Duncan's BlackJack Speed Shop, to a musak version of Motley Crue's Kick Start My Heart. The man knows his market...
B1G Network announced that Penn State-Rutgers was the highest-rated game on Saturday in the New York and Philly markets.
No offense but playing a kazoo on TV is almost as goofy as holding your nose during an ice bucket challenge. But hey, the NY Times bought it
"Hey Mister, how do I get to Madison Square Garden." "Inherit billions and buy the place kid."
But as the story points out, Jim Dolan belongs to a garage band that overcame huge odds to open up for the Eagles at MSG. Inspiring story
I think Jim Dolan got set up. The host of the show is Rosanna Scotto. Her sister married Nets CEO Brett Yormark....Score one for Brooklyn.
Just read that the Kings are going to retire Peja Stojakovic's number this season. Nice honor for a member of the 2011 NBA Champion Mavs!
Kings are retiring Peja's number in three months. Thanks for the memories -- especially Game 7 of the '02 Western Conference Finals.
Small difference. http://t.co/ohd6gH57UP
Brandon Hill has been sacked just once while completing 62.3 percent of his passes, while KB Asante leads the Big South in total TDs w/six
/sorry //leaves twitter
I suspect Monmouth has something in mind to deal with the loss of McHugh, but worth noting that the o-line has been very good so far.
This is a franchise that could a powerful, experienced, savvy president. But the Yorks for some reason have always resisted that.
Was traveling yesterday. Forgot to post that University of Indianapolis dropped out of coaches NCAA D-II poll after losing at Saint Xavier.
Marcus Thornton had No. 23 last season.
Detroit Pistons brought in shooting guards, Andrew Warren (Bradley) & Ben Hansbrough (Noter Dame) for workouts today and Wednesday, I’m told
ICYMI: Ben McLemore put in the papwerwork months ago to switch from No. 16 to No. 23, the number he'll wear now.
Celtics officially announce Scott Morrison as head coach of the Maine Red Claws.
Fans don't care, they only want wins. But if you ever want things explained, it won't be done by anybody in power with the 49ers.
49ers summary: GM hates talking publicly, owner almost never does it, coach does it but often stonewalls & the QB would rather never do it.
Car will be revealed on the same day, and auctioned off for charity.
