Bennett unique in his own right. Joins Pervis Ellison and CWebb as only No. 1s to be traded after 1 season. (GSW shipped Webb to WSH)
Live tweeting from USA-Puerto Rico. Derrick Rose is NOT starting. Hmmm.
Derrick Rose indeed not in the starting lineup. Kyrie again along with Curry.
Irving starts for Team USA. Rose coming off the bench.
USA starters: Irving, Curry, Harden, Faried & Davis, as expected.
When Wiggins gets traded Sat, he will join CWebb as the only No. 1 picks to be traded w/o playing a game for team that chose them since '76
I still remember being in Athens in '04. Carlos Arroyo and Puerto Rico absolutely dominated Iverson, Duncan and Team USA.
What's more important than how Rose plays tonight is how he feels tomorrow. If knees are still sore then USA decision becomes even tougher.
USA-Puerto Rico is set to tip off at MSG. Ex-Knick Renaldo Balkman is soaking in a few pre game cheers. http://t.co/GGSnBbi6g5
Watching USA game on TV tonight. Let's try something different. If you've got a question send it here and I'll try to answer during 1st half
underrated part of Darth Vader? His cape.
Light rain. Tarp on field at Smith's Ballpark. Don't know the forecast but somebody just drew a shark in the dirt in front of Bees' dugout.
US-Puerto Rico coming up on ESPN2. Rose expected to play but not start
The Boba Fett on the field also impersonates Elvis is his older years.
Star Wars night at the ballpark. Dan Baker is dressed like an ewok. Uncanny resemblance.
"Look at that headline. Canada to hold referendum. Can't talk now."
My mom just sent me this pic of Joakim Noah in NYC. I'm digging the pink-tipped socks http://t.co/m1fes94wb6
PCL duty tonight: Angels' Grant Green in Salt Lake on rehab assignment. Playing SS and batting second tonight vs. Round Rock.
Also surprised to see no Rose gear, either.
They have Durant, George, Harden, Irving and Davis gear, though. Two of those guys, while prominent, aren't even playing.
At MSG for Team USA-Puerto Rico exhibition game. Just peeped the USA gear and surprised to see no Steph Curry gear.
Jesuit will now face Elk Grove HS at Levi's Stadium on Oct 10th. Manteca will now face Oakdale at Levi's on Saturday Oct 11th
Bart's mistake was keeping his Itchy & Scratchy movie ticket in his shirt pocket. No way Homer thinks of that otherwise.
Seems like Leiweke will be in Toronto for at least a few more months. Told me “I’ll see you here for breaking ground” (at practice facility)
Just lost EVERYTHING on my iPhone. Ugh, really? Thanks, Friday.
Meanwhile, as we balance in the middle of this massive universe, we're not somehow just incredibly wowed by that?! Ok, bak to Twitter.
“You can hire Wayne Gretzky and at the end of the day, the Raptors are going to be just fine. By the way, Wayne Gretzky likes the Raptors."
Take a moment: we're standing on the outer layer of this huge Earth. Just balancing in the middle of space. That's an amazing design.
BANG BANG BART
I'm not the biggest Soriano guy, but not sure closer is the Nats biggest concern. Besides, they've got a few options. Like 3 of them.
Jason Whitlock on PTI: Nats "have one big glaring problem that will bite them in the rear end come playoff time. They don't have a closer."
Just wanted to know if the 49ers have gotten any hint from the NFL about when a Smith suspension might come down. And they haven't.
Team USA is at 16 players and must cut to 12 by Aug. 29, one day before their first game.
It's hard two get two teams in out of the MAAC. Tourney winner obviously, then someone is really going to have stack non-conference wins.
Derrick Rose is here at MSG warming up and is expected to play tonight for Team USA vs Puerto Rico
Since the field expanded in '84, the MAAC has gotten two in twice, 1995 and 2012.
Treehouse of Horror episodes were stupid even in the Simpsons' golden era.
"The weather doesn't bother me at all I spent four years in Minneapolis starting the Timberwolves. That's much ado about nothing.” - Leiweke
Now that Tostitos is making flavored Scoops, can they get on Hint of Lime?
“It’s six times the size of what they have today.” - Tim Leiweke on new Raptors practice facility.
Practice facility will have theatre-size video room, kitchen, separate areas for separate departments with offices opening up onto the court
Raptors facility has lots of room to expand. Ujiri says visited 12 similar sites around NBA and everybody said regret was not enough space
Chicago's Elena Delle Donne also out for some pregame work http://t.co/8FdRf71AeF
Fox Sports is an embarrassment. Did they really not show Francesa's ice bucket challenge?
MSFA hired SMG, a venue management group with experience in soccer, to help determine the "market-rate rent," Michele Kelm-Helgen said.
Former Atlanta Hawks center and current Chicago Sky assistant Tree Rollins http://t.co/JRh8JDIhlV
And for the Harbaugh apologists who somehow think I'm bashing him... umm, I'm PRAISING him for being the 1st one to speak on this issue.
Mildly interesting: In the Thunder's Mark Daigneault release, they only referred to the 66ers as its "D-League team." Name change coming?
Disappointing to hear that a week from kickoff, Levi's Stadium field issues cancel the HS games with Jesuit/De la Salle & Manteca/Wilcox
Ryan Howard just hit one off the Stroehmann Bread ad during batting practice. Apparently @Subway does not use Stroehmann rolls.
Intense dedication from a Seattle fan in Wrigleyville prior to tonight's big showdown. http://t.co/HFdRlkUD0G
Atlanta's Angel McCoughtry out early getting some shots up. http://t.co/bcc2NsNNck

OK, timeline clog over. Thanks to all for reading, and the kind words.
The Simpsons invented Stephon Marbury's vaseline-eating Ustream video.
KB:"As athletes, you get the pressure of playing for the love of the game.Of course we do.But do owners buy teams for the love of the game?"
In other news, I recently discovered Bernie (of "Weekend at" fame) lives in my complex. He's been dead 25 years and still looks fabulous.
And last one, from Kobe talking about the pressure for players to take less $$ to help a team win, when he feels that's unfair.... (contd)
But my favorite quote from Tony, being Tony, on Kobe: “Ain’t no scouting report for a guy who scored 82 points in a game!"
Tony Allen also called Kobe: “the closest thing to Jordan in my era" and "I get to be able to tell the story that I got to guard that guy.”
And Tony said: "Oh man, that’s an honor! From him?!…(pause). Don’t want to let that get to me though. Got to keep my competitive advantage"
...and 2) Tony Allen. "Tony Allen is a big favorite of mine. Just how he plays and what he does." Which led me to call Tony... (contd)
...1)Steve Nash. "What he did in Phoenix? Outrageous! The guy is like 6 feet with platforms on, not particularly fast, but he maximized it."
Asked KB which players he thought most maxed out their natural talent. Couple you'd expect - KD and LeBron. Then he said two other names...
(That last quote may have been in response to a question about Dwight Howard)
Kobe: "There are certain guys that if you go back and look at guys I’ve gotten along with, they’re all cut from that cloth. All of them."
Lakers PT guru Judy Seto on Kobe's acumen: "He could speak to another medical professional and keep up with the conversation no problem."
But, "that being said, I took a pay cut. I’m very very lucky to be w/ LA. They could have lowballed me, but that’s not what they stand for."
KB believes players like him & LeBron are underpaid (put LBJ free market at ~ $75 mil). Believes important to set an example in contracts...
What are people's general thoughts on the Simpsons Movie?

Heading to MSG for FARIED vs. BALKMAN.
In Richmond for the weekend.. The ham biscuit industry alone might be enough to make this a top 5 city internationally
Someone should make a supercut of all the scenes in early episodes where Lisa is a devout Christian.
Last tweet, facility scheduled to be completed in January 2016, just ahead of all-star weekend
The Timberwolves like Bledsoe, but certainly not enough to bail on the 3-team deal in place. Things go forward as planned
Importantly, media area at new facility is going to be awesome
The inside of Raptors facility is what matters and it looks really nice. Barely anyone will see the outside.
"Homer the Heretic" is coming up now. Top-three episode IMO.
Hoyas: Though Josh Smith wasn't around all summer for Kenner League, he's expected on campus tomorrow. Set to play this season per JT3.
Where do Raptors go from here, how do they keep momentum going and ward off negatives of Leiweke leaving? Masai, emphatically, "by winning!"
Masai says first-class facility is much needed. Current practice court lacking in many areas http://t.co/ZlQEI8Z9eA
Raptors practice facility http://t.co/aP4wvUd0pN
Carlos Ortiz competes a 63 and has lead in WinCo Portland Open at 13 under.
Hawks have made the Shelvin Mack signing official
Good afternoon from MetLife. There is decidedly less on the line tonight compared to the last time I was here. http://t.co/Lz7ZF3ZlFw
Leiweke said weather had nothing to do with anything. Spent years in Minny, vacations in Vail. Will be at ASG here + groundbreaking as guest
Perfect throw. Perfect tag. (Cubs game, btw). Yet it somehow gets reviewed to begin with. New rule. Awful rule.
As for the report about Hoyas-Terps in 2015 Gavitt Cup (BE v B10), JT3: "I have no idea. The conference offices will determine opponents."
I spoke with JTIII about rumors that Hoyas will face UVa in 2015 BB&T. Georgetown making 1st appearance this year & will face Towson.
Is baseball really better when Wrigley is packed with people in orange shirts @cubs?
RETWEET to officially welcome back Shelvin Mack! http://t.co/r3irk6UixL
This just happened in my front yard!!! http://t.co/3AXLnlPP1U
The weirdest nature moment happened when a humongous beetle flew by our yard with a tarantula in its grasp. Anyone wanna move to Herriman?
Ujiri said he went to see DeRozan play. Says he's taken game up yet another level. Deserving of a USA spot.
Leiweke said bringing in Ujiri one of his biggest accomplishments and Raptors in good hands. Ujiri will miss the synergy and camaraderie tho
Another neighbor asked me to kill a snake that slithered onto her front lawn. Long story short: It survived.
Masai Ujiri was adamant that despite loss of Leiweke Raptors are on the rise and nothing changes, board has bought in
The first time I saw a tarantula in my yard (in an SLC suburb!) was during a fantasy football draft. I think ended up with seven kickers.
The Killers will live forever on Los Angeles radio.
If we're lucky, the tarantula my neighbor recently found on his driveway will join the fracas.
The magpie, which might've been scared off by a wannabe photographer, just returned. This could get real. http://t.co/7dAU19m8HT
By my latest count, 47 NBA players under contract at the World Cup. HOU, IND, MIN & SAS will have 3 non-USA players each.
Just saw a magpie and a squirrel fight right outside of my home office window. Next time I'll try to get my phone camera to witness it, too.
And now 49ers players are taking questions about the Levi's field... before Jed York, Paraag Marathe or Al Guido have done so.
I still can't get over that Rutherford B. Hayes beat Samuel Tilden in 1876.
Most offensive hotel breath mint ever? http://t.co/4EZTmIBkJv
I haven't made my season prediction yet - my range right now is 35-45 - but I'll settle in on a number before the season
In case it isn’t obvious by the Nike logo and the email address of the designer, those “Xmas jersey” pics floating around aren’t legit.

I removed that tweet which was directed to me...
Odd thing about Michael Egnew, cut today, is that Ireland thought he would be downfield threat. But coach said route-running was weakness.
So you get fined more for dunking than giving the finger? MT @adamschefter: NFL fined Jimmy Graham $30K for dunking footballs over goalpost.
Harbaugh: "What's going on is a new grass field's being put down and it'll be ready for Sunday."
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Ok Neil Funk your turn ! http://t.co/7vdin2cZjM
During his NBA career, Kyrie Irving never played w/ a teammate that averaged > 17 ppg… last year, Love & LeBron avg 26 & 27 ppg respectively
More Harbaugh: "Our organization, we can count on them to always do things at the highest level. And that's what's in process now."
Harbaugh: "As it relates to the field, the action's been taken. We're re-fitting, re-grouping, re-tooling and the new field is going in...
How could this happen? It started out like Romeo and Juliet but ended up in tragedy.
About to head into what has become a far more interesting pre-skedded sitdown with Tim Leiweke and Masai Ujiri.
In a scrimmage with a bunch of other future pros it's hard to overstate how much Thon Maker is dominating here.
"All they do is kiss." "How cute! ... They don't open their mouths, do they?" "No." "How cute!"
