Kupchak said he is not concerned about that relationship and "absolutely" believes Howard and D'Antoni can grow a strong coach-star bond.
Alright. I'm done eviscerating Dan Gilbert. He has to go back to Cleveland. That's punishment enough. DB
New podcast dropping tonight! Topics include Dwight (shock!), PJ's book, Bieber's monkey, The Fast and the Furious franchise. AK
"We made the Finals once!" - Dan Gilbert
LeBron still won't go back to Cleveland. DB
"Hey, we lost all our good players because it sucks here, but we stay winning that lottery!" - Dan Gilbert. DB
Dan Gilbert's jacket is about as putrid as his attempt to keep LeBron was. DB
Can we do the top three pick in Comic Sans? I'm not sure Dan Gilbert will be able to read the picks otherwise. DB
Cleveland back in the Top 3 of the draft lottery. Stay successful, Dan Gilbert.
The Lakers are going to win the draft lottery. Book it. DB
Not saying it will happen but the Clippers would be smart to make a play for Jackson and do what the Lakers didn't: Wait for an answer.
So what if Jackson is engaged to Buss? That's not "creepy." That's life. Ask James Carville and Mary Matalin.
There's a lot of creepy things in this world. The Clippers making a run at Phil Jackson wouldn't be one of them.
Con muchas ganas de ver el 2º partido de la serie entre San Antonio y Memphis esta noche! Ojalá que los Grizzlies igualen la eliminatoria.
Phil Jackson on current Lakers lineup winning: "I don't know about that. They can't run because of the age and incapability of speed."
Phil Jackson on Dwight Leaving: "Would you if you felt your game wasn't going to be featured?"
Sacks (cont) - “Vinny helped this team win a Pacific Division title & we greatly appreciate all that he and his staff helped us accomplish."
Just invented a joke: What time is it when Dwight Howard sits on a fence? (Send the punchline back...) BK
Remember when the only time anyone was talking about the Clippers was in reference to the lottery? Times have changed
Looking for writers/bloggers who live in LA area and want to cover major concerts. Access would be free. Tweet if interested.
Can you imagine if you owned a basketball team and you're going to marry the best coach in history. Yet your brother won't let you hire him.
Clippers are looking at the next 5 years with CP3 and Griffin as the cornerstones. VDN was not going to be the coach for the next 5 years.
Sources said Clippers would talk to CP3 and Griffin before making any coaching moves. If they wanted him back, he'd be back.
There was no rush to a decision with VDN signed through June and Sterling looking at some coaches currently coaching.
No surprise that VDN is gone. It was only a matter of time after four straight losses to Memphis in the 1st round.
I realize Bill Russell, Robert Horry, Kareem, MJ, Pippen, etc have six rings+. However, out of all the great players in history. Its rare.
Clippers fire Del Negro? Who's next?
Name players who have won six or more championships. Yeah...very rare.
I love the LeBron debate: "Listen if he wins 6 more championships that puts him at 7. One above MJ." People say that as if it is easy.
"My ego is my imaginary friend..he was wit me when I was only imagining!"
Should be noted that D'Antoni did wind up posting Dwight more by season's end, tho somewhat b/c of Lakers' limited options.
Manchester City and the New York Yankees entered into a $100 million deal to own the New York City Football Club, the 20th franchise in MLS.
On day way to good ol West Va

The Voice got the Beyonce Fan in full effect . . . .no bueno
If it comes down to losing Howard or firing D'Antoni, the team will let MDA go. Which is what most fans seem to want them to do. DB
Get ready...Dwight Howard rumors/talk/gossip/speculation already is heating up and its not even June 1.
