Total breakdown, as of now: 6 point guards (4 small, 2 normal size), a couple of shooting guards & four bigs.
Of the PGs 4 are, shall we say, small: Shane Larkin (5-11), Phil Pressey (5-11), Pierre Jackson (5-10) & Peyton Siva (6-0)
Am told Celtics are bringing in 12 draft prospects to workout over the next two days, 6 of them point guards.
Late to this, but Rex Ryan saying he's disappointed in Sanchez has to sting. I'd rather someone be 100 diff. things at me than disappointed.
No inside info from Sully on KG/Pierce: "I'm not the GM... so I don’t know anything that’s happening." Said supports them whatever happens.
Sullinger, who resumed light workouts about two weeks ago, is now on a 10-week program aimed to ramp him up. Hopes to be 100% by camp.
More Sullinger: "Because I had surgery, I’m taking my time and getting back right. It won’t be a recurring injury."
Jared Sullinger on surgery: "Everybody says back with a question mark, you might as well put an X through that."
Re: autograph signing must be 18 years or older.
Join me for a limited autograph signing at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel’s Oscar Room from 1-3pm today. Space is LIMITED.
Rondo received one point in All-NBA Team voting, which equals one third team vote.
All-NBA 1st Team: James, Durant, Duncan, Bryant, Paul/2nd:Anthony, Griffin, Gasol, Parker, Westbrook/3rd:D.Lee, George, Howard, Wade, Harden
No Celtics made All-NBA Teams. Pierce, Garnett, Rondo received votes.
Correction: KG tied for 27th overall.
Pierce finishes 23rd overall in voting for 3 All-NBA teams. Garnett 28th. Rondo gets 1 third team vote.
The only guy on any of the all-NBA teams that's not on twitter is Duncan, which is perfect.
No Celtics on three All-NBA teams. Pierce top vote-getter for team (KG behind him; Rondo gets one vote).
Julien presser clocks in at 1:19. These guys are ready for some hockey!
LeBron caught the ball at the 3-pt line with his momentum going toward half court and he managed to get to the rim in one dribble. Insane.
In Torts' semi-defense, no one was jumping to ask questions. But it was clear he wanted no part of the session from the moment he walked in.
The extent: No updates on Stralman. Spoke to team, not sharing...and: scene. Thanks John!
Torts actually wheeled to walk out before any questions were asked when there was about a 3 second pause when he stepped to the podium.
The good news: it won't take long to transcribe John Tortorella's morning press conference. It lasted 20 seconds.
I do like that the Pacer's strengths play to the one Heat weakness. George on his way to becoming a superstar? seems so.
Looking for comic book superheroes analogy...Pacers more like Justice League of America or....X-men?
Have to say...overall....impressed with the Pacers. Up against a LBJ basketball machine.
Some ppl are so ignorant
We've all heard: "reading is fundamental" and it is; but it is also "essential" to learning and improving. We need to know what others know!
"The Best" in any business never "settle". Makes no sense not to stretch urself to be the best you are capable of. We owe that to ourselves!
If Ray Allen makes both his free throws and if the Pacers don't turn it over 20 times and if Wade doesn't foul George ...
George Hill needs to be a lot better for Indy. 2-for-9 shooting and shaky with the ball.
Can't believe the play against that defense that won the game for Miami. Unreal.
Lost amid the Hibbert/Vogel stuff: LeBron. Triple-double, gets a layup to win it in a nearly impossible situation to do so.

Watching games like this make u wish u were playin .
By the way, LeBron went for 30-10-10 like it was no big thing.
Got to have big fella in there with 2.2 seconds left. "Shot blocking"! got to love the NBA playoffs because its filled with excitement!
Vogel did the same thing with Roy down the stretch in Game 6 against the Knicks. Makes no less sense now. Or ever.
Lessons from Gm1: Hit your FTs, often times attacking basket is better option than settling for hero shot, hit your FTs, and hit your FTs.
A lay up for game?????????
LeBron's level of emotion after that game winner was slightly terrifying
Great game overall.... Looking forward to this series.... Good night world the grind awaits
That was the one to get, Pacers.
Maybe LeBron makes the Pacers' scouting report for Game 2. We'll see.
Vogel calls Roy Hibbert the best rim protector in the league. Tough to do from the bench.
I would of kept Roy Hibbert in the game BOTH TIMES....
Again, no Hibbert.
Really?! Show the replay and the clock.
Also LeBron's game
"Whose game is it? It's Paul George's game."
Are you putting Roy Hibbert all over he ball right now???
Paul George should do the Cassell dance after making all three.
oh my god
Hush LeBron, there was no and one.
Sure the plan was to switch picks but I think I'd take my chances with George fighting through (going under?) a Cole pick.
Why did you take out Hibbert?
Name your go to play if you're the heat....... And name your go to play if you're the pacers
Go ahead, PG. Take it over.
Not a foul
That was about 10X worse shot/possession than Bayless last night. But, that went in.
PAUL GEORGE IS REDEEMED
Uhh, no, George wasn't confused by the bench. He was trying to find Hibbert and got caught in the air with nowhere to go.
Three potential confrontations this series: Hansbrough vs. Birdman. West vs. Everybody. Kerr vs. Miller.
See, he even fouls Battier's elbow with his face.
Patiently waiting for two possessions to go by without a foul called.
Man, even the crowd wants no part of the minutos
I love David West, but that wasn't smart.
Pretty convinced Lance Stephenson is the long lost and tougher brother of Chris Bosh. Dudes look alike... http://t.co/gX8XUoZ7Mi
The mark of a playoff crowd is when you can hear a ref telling the players to get to the free throw line.
"You be careful around that Birdman" - text from Tyler Hansborough's mom to Tyler Hansborough, probably.
We just need a backcourt violation to get ref bingo.
Maybe Hansbrough and Birdman can get each other kicked out.
If Bron's making those jumpers.
