As the chairman of the "Tim Duncan is the best player of his generation" committee, I'm ineligible for any "You hate the Spurs!" theories.
San Antonio fans are funny - if you don't pick their Spurs to win a series, they honestly believe this means you HATE the Spurs.
Last fake trade: hey Rip City, would you flip LaMarcus Aldridge to Cleveland for Tristan Thompson + 1st overall pick? Hmmmmmm.
I gave him the Boogie/Wiz idea last night! Wilbon is a fake trade stealer. RT @danpeesmith
: didn't Wilbon already tweet this?
1 more fake trade: Cleveland sends 1st, 19th, 31st and 33rd pix + Tristan Thompson for Kevin "Fleeing 'Sota in 2 Years" Love... who says no?
Fake trade: what about Boogie Cousins to Washington for the 3rd pick? A reunion of buddies Wall + Cousins! @KySportsRadio
Boom! RT @Grantland33

SA crowd was great tonight. My head hurts. Relentlessly loud. They're more hockey crowd than NBA crowd. Old-school fans, raucous atmosphere.
Boogie Cousins to Cleveland for the first pick... who says no?
Haven't been able to get online with my Thinkpad since I left LA. Laptop is 10 mths old. The @lenovo
extortionists are on the case!
- why sell 3-yr "warranties" for new laptops that secretly don't cover software issues (more $$$ to fix). You are extortionists.
I'm such an idiot for using a Lenovo Thinkpad. They are unhelpful extortionists when anything goes wrong. Entire day wasted. Thanks Lenovo.
Good luck post-SNL to Bill Hader. Check out a fan's crazy "Goodbye Stefon" video on YouTube. youtu.be/n0SKyvU7yEA
Just tried Two Bros BBQ w/ @JalenRose
- off the charts tremendous. SA BBQ jumps to an early lead over Mem BBQ. Mem calls timeout to regroup.
I just lost my "I can't hear anything in my earpiece and I'm on live TV" virginity - not nearly as traumatic as I expected!
At 3est. Check me out on ABC NBA Countdown w/@MagicJohnson @RealMikeWilbon
! Followed by game 1. Memphis at Spurs #WCF
Congrats to the college grads! Mine was 21 yrs ago: 90 mins sleep, hungover, 98 degrees, hot sun, black gown. Closest I've come to death
I'm ice-cold in the playoffs so here's some good news for Spurs fans: I'm picking the Grizz in 6. Love this matchup for them.
Abrams wrote a Ricky Davis/Lance Stephenson feature in April... never expecting Lance would become a Round 2 hero. es.pn/11ZCa8N
Just sprained an ankle leaping on the Stepinac high school hoops bandwagon. HC's "Air Hermo" is now Coach Hermo!!! lohud.us/16xe7CP
PS: I know Hill got cleared but it doesn't mean he'll be in the same groove. I don't think Indy can close out NYK without Hill playing well.
Bad news, Knicks fans - I think you're going to win tonight. I've been cold in the playoffs except for believing in Memphis Round 2.
There's a way to explain it???. RT @Grantland33

I think I'm most excited for Gus' Fried Chicken in Memphis. How can you go wrong with a place called "Gus' Fried Chicken?"
Thx for all the food recs in SA + Mem everybody. Looks like the words "healthy" and "gluten-free" will not be in my West Finals future.
My new favorite TV show: "The Baby Bachelor." Too bad they couldn't afford Chris Harrison though. es.pn/111TIg7
Excited to spend next 2 weeks in 2 cities I've never been to: San Antonio + Memphis. Right now Dry Rub BBQ is a -130 favorite over TexMex.
I think we're headed for Mia-Mem, but the thought of Duncan/Popp getting a ring 14 yrs after their 1st one together is increasingly amazing.
Don't know how gsw can keep Jack and Landry though. They are shelling out 35m next year just to Bogut-Biedrins-Jefferson, such a killer.
wish I had praised the Spurs more on TV tonight - got caught up in the gsw angles. SA's D + coaching adjustments were terrific last 4 games.

I liked the way the Grizz handled themselves after they won. All business. They've just won 8 of their last 9 playoff games by the way.
This tweet is going to be short for me, I have a game to get to in Oklahoma City. Anyway, congrats to Thibs + the Bulls for a great season.
Between tonight's playoff games, David Stern is going to ram a knife into the back of a giant Seattle SuperSonics piñata.

Why Wiggins may be the best NBA prospect since Oden/Durant insider.espn.go.com/nba/blog/_/nam…
People forget how good Durant was in college. Averaged 26-11 with 47-42-82% splits as a freshman. That's ridiculous.
I can't wait for Wiggins. He is CAN'T-MISS by all accounts. First can't-miss college player since Durant. Love the Kansas fit for him.
Last time I jumped on a college hoops bandwagon - Durant & Texas in 2007. Right until Rick Barnes crashed us into a tree.
Where do I buy my one-year Kansas Jayhawks bandwagon ticket? Can you get it online? WIGGINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
