Break him down young fella
Likin' the way Jeremy Lin is looking tonight. Lakers offense is flowing right now against the Bulls. Lin with 8pts in 9min on 4-5 shooting.
When TNT guys or any others rant about who should be an All Star, it should be required that they say who should not be to make room.
Adam Silver can replace Bryant with a player from any position. Will be lots of talk about Cousins, but Lillard more deserving.
I do feel badly for Marshawn. While he defied the media, he always did so in a polite manner. I appreciate that politeness over being a jerk
If anything, this Marshawn Lynch press conference, every Marshawn press conference is entertaining. It's like, what'll he do today?
Marshawn is talking?!?!? This is not a joke.
Rockets reassign Capela to D-League.
Clint Capela will have to wait for 1st NBA points. Rockets annouce re-assigned him to D-League. Capela was back for 2 games, playing in LA..
Just read that Serena Williams is going for her 19th major title. That's incredible. Federer has 17. Sampras 14.
Was there, but did not go through shootaround. RT @jonathan_feigen @rocketsbia @jonathan_feigen and at shoot around today I believe correct?
Dwight Howard will not be with the Rockets on the back-to-back to Boston and Detroit.
What's concerning about the Dwight injury is this is his right knee again. He was currently sitting out for his right ankle.
Howard was out for a second-consecutive game with a sprained right ankle, but obviously fluid in his knee the more pressing issue now.
Via the Rockets: Dwight Howard underwent an MRI, revealing edema in his right knee. He will be "evaluated further in the coming days."
