I think Billy King should be the NBA's Exec of the Year. He helped build a contender in Portland, and it looks like he saved the Celtics.

I'm already pissed about @kidmikey1
getting Heath Bell for $3 in League of Dorks, then Bell somehow saving 48 games for Tampa next season.

Impossible to root against Wesley Johnson and Xavier Henry even on the Lakers. I love redemption stories. Those guys have talent.
I can't fight it anymore... SACRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Phenomenal last-minute Browns loss for draft pick purposes. They need to borrow Mike Brown as their offensive coordinator for last 4 games.
If the Browns lose because Weeden kicked a ball thru his own end zone, that's a Great Moment in Tanking History. Also - GOSTKOWSKI!!!!
My Wednesday column (mailbag + picks) could be a blueprint for a possible 0-16 week. I'm 13 losses away. es.pn/187SPuJ
I should start Philip Rivers at home against Cincy over Carson Palmer in Philly... right?
I'm a Paul Walker fan and that's probably an understatement. So sorry to hear about his tragic car accident. Can't believe it.
I didn't get to see the Alabama-Auburn game, did I miss anything?
I love Boogie, but man, he's a horrible teammate sometimes. He's gotta fix that. You can't stink-eye/F-bomb your teammates in crunch-time.
Sacramento is a Rondo trade away from being legitimately fun. Rondo/Wallace for Salmons/Patterson/Jimmer/Hayes + 2014/2016 No. 1's... DONE!
1. Toronto, 6-9
2. Boston, 7-11
3. Philly, 6-11
4. Brooklyn, 4-12
5. New York, 3-12
Let's get a Kickstarter fund going to guarantee a Golden State-OKC Western Finals. Name your price, NBA.
That Erik Spoelstra got Michael Beasley to (a) play hard and (B) play defense has to make him Coach of the Year. Sorry Frank Vogel.
Phil Jackson ran the Triangle offense. Mike Brown runs the "If you cross midcourt with the ball, you get to keep it and shoot" offense.
Some real pressure on the Knicks to out-excrete the stinkbombs that fellow partners-in-stink Cleveland + Brooklyn are excreting tonight.

Screwed over by 2 backdoor covers today. 0 and 3 for the day. 22 games below for the season. I feel like I'm being coached by Jason Kidd.
I forgot - Grantland's Megan Creydt is the most reliable person in my life. Justin Tucker is a close second.
I love Justin Tucker so much. He's the most reliable person in my life. Singlehandedly keeping my fantasy season alive.

Just got burned by the Madden "down 10, kick FG first" scenario that coaches always mess up (except today). All-time mush season for me.

Obviously it's great for Boston if Brooklyn keeps losing, but I have a ton of respect for KG + PP. Just as a hoops fan, this is a bummer.
It's tough to watch KG and Pierce for a variety of reasons. It just makes me feel bad.
I enjoy Pete Holmes, he's done some good stuff on TBS so far. This Lolo Jones interview is legit funny. youtu.be/JnoCtzIEi0Q
Tough day for the Trade Machine Picasso. Can't figure out how to get the VERY AVAILABLE Dion Waiters to Boston. Need Trade Machine PEDs.
New column: a thanksgiving mailbag crossed with Week13 picks. Happy holidays. es.pn/196pttA
One of my guilty music pleasures is "China Girl" by David Bowie. I just feel like i needed to come clean.
FYI: I have a football column coming mid-afternoon ET today, just in time for you not to read it because you'll be traveling...
Dwayne Casey used a timeout to set up a game-winning corner 3 from Amir Johnson. I think that's a fireable offense. Pack your bags, Dwayne.
Dwayne Casey vs. Jason Kidd is a tic-tac-toe match for the ages.
It is absolutely unbelievable to watch the Nets. I seriously can't believe what I am watching.

More bummer injury news: hearing Bradley Beal reaggravated last spring's leg injury, and that the Wiz are worried he'll miss extended time.
