Not Donaghy bad, but why give Whitlock radio time here?
Shanahan: “I believe we have people in our organization who maybe have been afraid of certain words & certain information." Ah, Leafs.
What has a better ring: The Kyle Dubas Era or The David Booth Era?
With Andrew Wiggins & Anthony Bennett both targets in possible Kevin Love deal; no surprise they aren't w Canadian national team summer
What makes sense in all of this is Wolves leaking that offer to try to get Klay/other big bids for Love. Nothing else does to me.
It’s like James Dolan took over the Cavs and decided he had to have something. I really don’t get it.
I must be missing something. Who are Cavs bidding against, why is offer so huge? No Klay from Dubs vs. 2 great defenders from Bulls?
We’ll know sometime this week site of FIBA Americas Oly qualifying next year. Mexico strong favourite for men, Edmonton for women.
Which leads me to believe that is not actually an offer on table. It doesn’t just trump the rival offers, it might be triple the value
I don’t believe Wolves are ones holding up a Wiggins deal if offer really is Bennett and at least one future No. 1 for guy that is bailing?
In doing so they've dedicated themselves to basketball in a way most American players don't have to at that age. If thats not motivation...
Fact Whitlock may be overlooking: most Canadian players leave their families/friends/lives/country as teenagers to attend prep schools in US
Dubas said he hasn't talked with Randy Carlyle yet. Take that for what it's worth. I don't know if it means anything.
"People, they can’t really say what that truly means, other than one team’s winning and one team’s losing.” - Dubas on culture change
Meanwhile, new Leafs AGM Kyle Dubas told us something I've been dying to here re: culture change...
Straight from the Whitlock playbook: preface your baseless comments with "NBA people believe" and you can say whatever you want
Does anyone really truly give a rat's ass what Jason Whitlock thinks of Canada. Biggest. Yawn. Ever.
Successfully bailed from the ACC before the hockey takeover
".... But when the game is on the line, I never see him turn away. I always see him turn it up.” 2/2
More Nash on AW: "Yeah, there are times where we’d all like to see him show a little bit more alpha male…." 1/2
Nash on Wiggins: "His athleticism isn’t in question. They’re worrying about his motivation and desire. It’s good for him. He’ll overcome it.
Carl English also dismissed the negative talk about Canadians, and Wiggins in particular.
Steve Nash on Whitlock: "it's a wonderful sweeping generalization."
Triano dismisses Canadian softness talk. Mentions Nash, Thompson, Sacre. Says, "maybe we'll have to drop the gloves a bit on trip."
Anthony Bennett and Tyler Ennis at Canadian camp http://t.co/uulXYPciCv
Anthony Bennett and Tyler Ennis in the house at canada basketball practice today. Not heading to Europe with team.
Andrew Nicholson on Whitlock's comments: "I don't agree with that at all. If we didn't have the will, we wouldn't be here."
Tyler Ennis and Anthony Bennett are indeed in building. Not working out though, just putting in an appearance
NHL continues to catch up to things NBA has been doing recently (or since Morey, really). Hiring extremely young, promising execs
The Leafs appear to be more or less as on top of the concept of timing as the Sacramento Kings.
The new Leafs assistant GM is good. He twice retweeted my stories. That's how I know.
Anyway, "consider the source" remains if not the golden rule, the bronze rule of journalism/life.
I simply refuse to believe Jason Whitlock said something lazy and unfounded about a large group of people.
Thank you Lord for waking us up this morning..
With a young hooper at a hoops clinic for kids in Manila today. http://t.co/8wUdPn1ds5
Who's your least favourite person on Twitter? Mine is me.
I just heard.....the argos managed a rouge against the Patriots? Impressive. 14-1. Wow

Great day of golf at Westmount in KW. Great company. TERRIBLE round though. My worst in 3+ years. Could be the 3 hrs of sleep I'm going on
Ranking of highest amount of absurd pre-season optimism, by sport: 1. baseball; 2. football; 3. hockey; 4. basketball
All words beginning with caps in headlines is a subtle form of tyranny.
“Goal in 2016 is to be top 10 team and I'm not afraid to say (in 2020) I'll be very disappointed if these guys aren't a medal team” English
I'm cheering for the Rockets. "Lose the summer, win the summer league" is a pretty good slogan.
I asked a Raptors executive who he had tonight in the LVSL — Houston or Sacramento. There was laughter.
Toronto Blue Jays' closers for now and the future have included Randy Myers, Miguel Batista, B.J. Ryan and Sergio Santos.
The Sergio Santos Era sure was scintillating.
Everything is embarrassing. How 'bout that for a hot take?
Still a chance Tyler Ennis attends Canadian camp if insurance can be worked out. Melvin Ejim there today
Orlando's Andrew Nicholson at Canada's camp at ACC: http://t.co/uC2HMlH4a4
Carl English said he'd be disappointed of Canadian group on the way isn't contending for medals when he is no longer part of program.
Carl English tells us today that he's not dead yet. Intends to be part of team that makes noise next year.
I Wake up in the morning take a knee and thank the Man.
oh no the NFL is starting
Feel free to send pix of the stuff you did so far also
I'll RT the good ones so let it rip
How is everyone's summer been going so far ?? What have you done where have you been? Let me know.
Hello Young World!!
The last episode of Enlisted was amazing, btw, if you want a hot take on a month-old episode of a long-cancelled show.
Agh. Hudak, not Hudek. Way to go, self.
Watching old episodes of Enlisted. Tim Hudek looks still so hopeful in his commercials.
Most cliches are amazing, it should be noted. It's why they're cliches.
What is the best cliche? Like, which cliche is so profound that we should keep saying it despite it being a cliche?
