Gordon Hayward, Damon Lillard, Kyle Korver, Chandler Parsons among final U.S. World Cup cuts – ESPN. “Maybe it kind of catches people by surprise. Yes he’s young, but a 7-foot, 280-pound guy who can run the floor the way Drummond runs and who protects the rim … when you describe all the physical attributes, that’ [...]
Adam Silver swooped in to ban Donald Sterling (effectively as a distraction during the 2014 playoffs), but now, he’s back in the spotlight. Endlessly. This is exhausting, Adam – it’s BULL SHIT. Get rid of this mother fucker once and for all, or we will all continue to suffer. Doc Rivers will leave. Trust me. So will Chris Pa [...]

The Big Three came together, did what they had to do, won two championships and took the Heat to the NBA Finals four consecutive times.

Isaiah Austin, a seven footer from Baylor, found out when he went in for his draft physical that he has Marfan syndome, a heart disorder. It means he cannot play in the NBA. Adam Silver elected for the NBA to draft Austin, anyways. Between the 15th and 16th overall selections, Austin was able to walk on stage and have the moment he deserved. [...]
“I live too much in the moment. I can’t worry about what goes on after this series is over with. Win, lose or draw, I live now and worry about the future once it’s upon me.” “I won’t change my approach,” LeBron James said. “I hold guys accountable. I don’t let things slide. I hold guys acc [...]
Time to man up, Miami. You’re our only hope…
Once they got the building working, it was much smoother sailing. Miami won 98-96 behind LeBron’s 35 on 14-22, including six straight to start the second half.
