grizz are so awesome. that leaning 3 conley hit to take the lead in the last minute was killer.

boogie is also awesome. really clutch in the last min.

what a finish by the grizz, those guys are rock solid. they were down by double digits at half and Z-bo hadnt even recored a single stat (0 points, 0 brds). i had a double take when i saw the 4th quarter score. but not surprised

Rose injured AGAIN. The guy's body is just breaking down. He's aging like a running back. I had help out hope for his return, considering the injuries accidents but at this point it's becoming clear his career will be cut short. He just plays with too much stress on his body and while it was possible when he was younger, he's trying to force his body to do this it won't do any longer.

I watched CHI - TOR last night. Enjoyable game. That Chicago team looks like a finals team to me if he survives the season.

Jimmy Butler is clearly most improved player of the year. He shot 70% last night, 52% on the year so far for a #2. He looked fantastic well beyond those numbers, the kid is just so impressive to watch.

Yes, he's really seeming rejuvenated. Playing next to Noah and Gibson and in Thib's system helps.

Joakim Noah to Derrick Rose critics like Charles Barkley: ‘Chill the f— out’

^Ha, I love Barkley because he's such an idiot. Assuming for the sake of argument that we take Rose's comments how they're being portrayed, who's more stupid? Barkley, who goes home to a big mansion but has trouble getting up the stairs, or Rose if he retires early, who can go home to a big mansion and play soccer easily and painlessly in the yard with his kids?

And yeah, if Rose doesn't pursue as many more millions as he possibly can no matter what the cost to his health, he's dissing maids . ..

obviously what he said would upset a lot of people, but I understand it and he is right IMO, there is more to life than basketball
perhaps it would be more wise to keep these thoughts to yourself if you are a famous person

Adam Silver writes in support of legalization of sports gambling


NBA commissioner Adam Silver penned an essay published in the New York Times on Thursday, urging for the legalization and regulation of sports gambling outside of Nevada.

"I believe that sports betting should be brought out of the underground and into the sunlight where it can be appropriately monitored and regulated," Silver wrote.

The essay comes in the wake of several interesting developments. The NBA was part of a group of sports leagues who successfully petitioned a court to block a New Jersey law that would have allowed sports betting at horse tracks and casinos in the state. In the essay, Silver defends the decision of the NBA to stand with the other leagues in opposition to the New Jersey law due to its violation of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act passed in 1992. In short, if states are going to be able to change the law when it comes to gambling, the NBA wants in on the conversation.

What are the regulations Silver is speaking of?

"These requirements would include: mandatory monitoring and reporting of unusual betting-line movements; a licensing protocol to ensure betting operators are legitimate; minimum-age verification measures; geo-blocking technology to ensure betting is available only where it is legal; mechanisms to identify and exclude people with gambling problems, and education about responsible gaming," Silver states.

But still, the essay is forthright in its support of what Silver seems to believe is the inevitable future of sports gambling in America, and his understandable position that the NBA should be a part of any process that decides its legal implementation.

The essay comes the day after the NBA announced a new partnership with single-day fantasy site FanDuel (a CBS Sports sponsor), which has its own set of complications.

It's good to hear from the commissioner to set the league's position straight, since there's an inherent contradiction to the league supporting the legalization of sports gambling outside of Nevada and then supporting a measure to block such a law. The questions now involve what role the NBA will take in the formation of the laws they do approve of.
