Nikola Vucevic on Scott Skiles leaving Magic: “I was surprised, like everyone else” dlvr.it/LJt7z1
Favorite Greg Maddux Stat: He faced 20,421 batters during his career and only 310 saw a 3-0 count. 177 of those were intentional walks
Or a 22-year old Tobias Harris for FAs-to-be Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova to not make a run at the 8-seed. twitter.com/iKezims/status…
Skiles has no interest in developing young players, he's proved that at every stop and his veteran preference has never gotten him very far.
The funniest part of this to me is everyone except the Magic and Skiles said last summer exactly what Skiles said today. It was obvious.
Do basketball hipsters still think Kawhi is better than KD? Asking for a friend
Unlike Dwight, Shaq never goofed around, pretended to be superman, bailed on orlando to go to los angeles or feuded with kobe
Man KAT should have stuck at UK, NBA really held him back twitter.com/sn_nba/status/…
You cracked the code, gumshoe twitter.com/EpsteinZach/st…
The best play Russell Westbrook made last night -- and it counted for nothing in the box score.
I would give anything for Kawhi to start a blog about 1980s defense with just clips and “LOLOLOLOLOL” commentary. twitter.com/JonesOnTheNBA/…
Totally forgot to tweet this last night. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?
The overtime of TOR-MIA will air on Google+.
On the theory that the Grizzlies need someone who can stop Steph? twitter.com/rodneyruffin1/…
The fact that the Hawks have to start Sefolosha tonight pinpoints the issue with their roster come playoffs every year.
I'm one bored cat away from the greatest video ever and 1200 re-tweets.
Frank Isola gonna fit right in across the table from Stephan A. Won't completely fill Skip's shoes but he'll give ESPN 80% for 5% the salary
Report: All teams will pursue Kevin Durant as hard as they can because... duh. twitter.com/basketballtalk…
Charles Barkley ,you better stop talking s*** about Cleveland you was never tough you hide behind TNT
so when lebron said he wanted to play with melo and wade and cp3 before they all retire... did he mean... in space jam 2
You know he sends Lola a "Hey whats up!" Instagram DM from the other side of the bench in Act 1 twitter.com/MalcolmRapapor…
How many minutes into Space Jam 2 does LeBron subtweet Bugs and Daffy?
Cut off one Steph, four more shall take its place.
Clippers/Warriors would have been epic. Sad not to see it.
A quick breakdown of the OKC defense:
LaMarcus Aldridge is just destroying Ibaka. One of Bulls' all-time draft mistakes trading Aldridge's rights for Tyrus Thomas back in 2006.
Spurs right now
Replay of Spurs 1st quarter...
These refs are going to drive Al Jefferson back to into the open arms of fried chicken.
Omg... no. not... BACKWARD! twitter.com/twithersAP/sta…

For comparison, Dwight ranked 2nd in usage rate on the Lakers in '13, 2nd during his 1st season in HOU. Now, 9th. Limited, yes. Ignored too.
Not saying he's Kareem out there, but Dwight ranked 9th on HOU in usage rate in the regular season; 7th during playoffs behind Corey Brewer.
Fine. My mentions are always a hazmat zone anyway.
And the Nets pick
Technically, all players have a locker room presence as long as they are in the locker room.
So surprising they wouldn't let a Free Agent help pick a coach for a team he's probably leaving. twitter.com/basketballtalk…
Anyone bashing this doesn't understand Dame and culture he's established in Portland. There's no "my team" there. twitter.com/blazerbanter/s…
Charles Barkley must have prepared that Pablo Prigioni spiel before the show.

writers don't remember Wang Zhizhi. twitter.com/johnnynba/stat…
Surely this will be episode that convinces Mark Cuban he should keep opponents' names out of his mouth.
The Mavs can live with 30 points from OKC superstar Kevin Durant, but 34 from non-superstar Russell Westbrook might be too much to overcome.
