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

on NBA Rnd 2, SA/Mem food, Kobe vs Duncan all-time + Durant's ceiling post-Mem series. es.pn/112b1xy
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Young buck @andrewsharp
in our LA office this week, we're forcing gallons of Grantland kool-aid down his throat. Psyched to have him aboard.
An underrated sports upset: Dom Torretto beating up the Rock in Fast Five. That was almost a 10-8 round.
The Dubs are allllllllllllllllllllllive.
Underrated storyline of this series - how bad Jarrett Jack's D is on these Parker-Duncan high screens. Can't stay within 5 feet of Parker.
So a wildly off-balance Jarrett Jack 22-footer wasn't really the play I was hoping for there.
The Warriors make high school team mistakes. That last 25 seconds of the 3rd Q was embarrassing. You can't let SA get the last shot there.
Congrats to Seth - logical next step for him. RT @nytimes

I don't understand the GSW strategy tonight. Smallball was the biggest advantage they had and they've basically given it up. So confused.

We're still having major publishing issues. I don't think God wants Part 3 of the Trade Value trilogy to see the light of day.
We're having major publishing issues with Grantland this afternoon. Slight chance that the site might be possessed.

Eric Hosmer just hit his first HR of the season for my League of Dorks team. It's May 9th. I shouldn't be this excited.
Bad news for Kings fans: my daughter can't go tomorrow night. Birthday sleepover party. Good news for Kings fans: she says you will win 4-2.
