Kevin Harlan dropping a " Red Rocket" at the greatness of Matt Bonner. The legacy lives on 2004 !
Spurs playing a depleted Heat team but boy do they look great its that time of year.
Whiteside just dunked ....hmmm. I wonder why he didn't moments ago? Either way the Heat play hard credit Coach Spo
Gorgeous move by Whiteside just can't finish because of the hand. With banged up finger can't dunk
Tony Parker just put the entire Heat team in the blender. Wowza
Thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time to the family of Mike Feezey my former boss at WJR in Detroit. A very good man .
Grantland is a tremendous platform for in depth sports features. The Bobby Phils story is extremely well written .
Los Angeles Clippers forward Glen Davis has been fined $15,000 for kicking a seat cushion into the spectator stands, it was announced today
Taj Gibson: "You have to understand you’re playing for a great team. You can’t worry about the “me” aspect. I'm happy guys are doing well."
Taj Gibson: "If you look at our frontline, we’ve got a bunch of guys who can basically start anywhere. So sacrifices are going to be made."
On train headed to Milwaukee for Bulls and Bucks. Hope to see thousands of Bulls fans. Please say hello Also welcome to Twitter Tim Hallam!
Get the sense from Taj that the Bulls playing just 5 games in 14 days before the last two weeks of the season has been a godsend
Bulls have won 9 straight games in Milwaukee. Last loss there came on Jan. 8, 2010.
FWIW, there's huge sense of confidence/optimism emanating from Bulls lately. They know they're getting healthy and feel they'll be tough out
Taj spills the beans. Rose's team lost in the scrimmage.
Taj on Rose: "He looked great to me."
No word on whether Rose actually plays tomorrow but with the way this season has gone, it's anybody's guess. Again, two practices
Thibs was still non-committal in regards to a Rose return date, but he sounds optimistic about the progress.
Rose went through 5 on 5 scrimmages today. Again, Thibs message revolved around his conditioning and timing
McDermott sat out w/ back soreness. Thibodeau wouldn't say if Rose's team won scrimmage but laughingly said, "Our 2nd unit is playing well."
Thibs says McDermott didn't practice today. Still has some back soreness.
Thibs says Rose still has to get his wind up but says "he's in a good place" with rehab.
Thibs says Rose participated in some five on five scrimmages today.
Rose scrimmaged 5-on-5 today. Thibodeau said he looked good.
Happy Birthday #87 to Mr. Hockey Gordie Howe
Un abrazo y mi mas sentido pésame a la familia y amigos de Lalo Garcia. Descansa en paz.
Get out the salami and cheese Momma....Raps win...what a ball game and what a race for the 3rd seed in the East. Bulls and Bucks Wednesday.
everyone in the house knows who's getting the rock
Onions for DeRozan....now it's Harden's turn
DeRozan has 40----you know what he's thinking..."Salami and Cheese will taste so good in the players lounge after the game."
Hawks PA guy ruined a really good game.
Kyle Korver scored 11 points in 67 seconds in the Hawks win over the Bucks.
Bucks have a tough week ahead: at ATL, vs. Bulls, at BOS. Miami also a rough sked: Spurs at home, then at CLE, DET & IND.
Wed. in Milw..hope to see thousands of Bulls fans at the game. Please say hello --Bill and I are across from Bucks bench about 50 rows up.
Bulls are 9-8 without Rose in this current stretch, and 16-12 w/out him for the season. Cavs are 2-8 without LeBron James this season.
Noah on Rose: "We know when Derrick’s back right, he takes our team to a whole other level."
Noah on Rose: "It was his first 4-on-4 contact since the surgery. So relax."
Rose refused to meet with the media.
Rose declined to comment to reporters.
Start of 5th week is also when McDermott got cleared for contact. He returned 5 weeks, 2 days following similar procedure as Rose's.
Song playing while Rose begins his weightlifting session: “Nobody does it better” Nate Dogg
Thibs on Rose return: "Ultimately he’s gotta feel comfortable. You can’t put him out there if he’s not comfortable. He’s done a lot more"
"That’s the big thing. Each week he’s done a lot more. This is the next step, so hopefully he’ll be good.’’
Thibs on a Rose return to real games: “Well ultimately he’s got to feel comfortable. You can’t put him out there if he’s not comfortable..."
Barring setback, sticking to my guestimate that Rose returns either when Bulls in Florida April 8-9 or home vs. 76ers April 11.
Thibs on Rose: "The big thing, he was a little winded but we expect that. Overall it was good. Physically he feels good."
Thibs said Pau, Dunleavy, Brooks & Hinrich were the guys held out of practice today. Said they'll all expected to practice tomorrow.
Thibodeau: "He was aggressive, said he feels good physically. The big thing is going to be the conditioning. He’s been out a long time."
Thibodeau: "This is the next step. We’ll know more as he goes forward. Obviously, he needs more practice time where he’s taking contact."
Thibs said the biggest thing with Rose is his wind, said he got a little tired in the 4 on 4's. To be expected
Brooks, Gasol, Hinrich and Dunleavy held out of practice for rest purposes today. Should be good for Tuesday and Wednesday's game
According to Thibs, Rose was aggressive but conditioning was a problem.
Bulls rested Gasol, Hinrich, Dunleavy and Brooks so Rose played 4 on 4.Thibodeau called him aggressive. Said him getting winded was expected
Derrick Rose took part in contact practice today, per Thibs
Rose took full contact.
Rose took contact.
Taking bets on Rose - did he or didn't he take contact? Bulls practice about to wrap up.
Bulls front office/scouting staff deserve major props: Butler-30th pick, Gibson-26th pick, Mitotic-23rd pick Snell-20thpick.
When you move, you often find things you don't expect, like an MP3 dated Nov-2005. Imagine the gems!
Knapton served on NABC board, switched vote on 3-pt. from previous year. Always good to see D3 coaches influence D1. Ryan great then and now
Played vs. Bo Ryan's UW-Platteville teams in 80s under Bill Knapton at Beloit (Wis.) College. Knapton cast vote that put 3-pt. shot in '87.
Also, in my bracket I got all Elite 8 and all Final 4 picks perfect. All of them. For the record, picked Kentucky/Duke title, KU winning.
Not an exaggeration. It's almost 1/3... 4 Kentucky kids, 3 Duke kids and 2 Wisconsin kids, all likely 1st-rounders. That's 9 of 1st 30 picks
For those of you watching NCAA tourney for NBA talent, about a third of the 2015 first round picks are playing in the Final 4.
Hoping Mother Nature cooperates...a week from tonight regular season opener at Wrigley. New look Cubs host Cardinals.
Final 4 ratings will be off the charts...rights fees are astronomical but ratings deliver..Kentucky Duke,MSU and Wisconsin=Must See TV.
Love Okafor but Winslow can flat out play..big time.
Cavs with bizarre 87-86 home win over 76ers. The score didn't change for the last 3:57. Sixers missed 5 shots & 4 FTs during that stretch.
Izzo is a Hall of Fame Coach. Drop the michrophone moment got to give the guy props. No way at the start of the year did I expect this
