"Rose is such a transcendent talent, and so important to the Bulls’ future, that he has the ability to affect more than just the game. On this night, he affected the entire organization’s mood. The relief from Bulls personnel throughout the building was palpable. This was the man they hoped they would see again. This is the man who can deliver them to where they want to go."

ESPN - Joy to the locker room

I bet you can tell I’m a woman,” she said, “and I suspect the rest of the world can, too.”

She said she was all too aware that if she was selected, she would represent several hundred male athletes in the NBA; she would deal with league officials and agents who were nearly all men; she would negotiate with team owners who were almost all men; and she would stand before reporters who were predominantly men.

She did not flinch. “My past,” she told the room, “is littered with the bones of men who were foolish enough to think I was someone they could sleep on.

So football is rapidly collapsing under its own weight. Derek Jeter is retiring from baseball so I guess that’s over. Pip wants to know if you’re ready for some NBA? God knows we are.

So, what did you do this summer?

Gotham Chopra, the director of “Kobe Bryant’s Muse”, an upcoming documentary on Bryant, told a story about being with Kobe and watching the Nets and the Heat play. Recounts Chopra, “Deron Williams went like 0-for-9. I was like, ‘Can you believe Deron Williams went 0-9?’ Kobe was like, ‘I would go 0-for-30 before I would go 0-for-9. 0-for-9 means you beat yourself, you psyched yourself out of the game, because Deron Williams can get more shots in the game. The only reason is because you’ve just now lost confidence in yourself.”

It’s weird that the Bulls made him walk from the airport all the way to the United Center. That what you getting from this pic? Me too. Speaking as a Bulls fan, I am confused by that. But he DID walk it, all 17 miles. In the hot hot, very hot, heat. Weather. He made no complaint. He knew it was a test. And when he approached the royal entrance, passing the statue all must gaze upon, the broad doors opened up. And he was received greedily by an ingenuous Maester. Sir Thomas Thibodeau.

It’s time to #DreamAgain for Isaiah Austin.

"On Sunday morning, just days before the Baylor sophomore center was slated to hear his named called in Thursday’s NBA Draft, Isaiah made the announcement that his professional basketball career was over before it ever started.    

Last month at the NBA Combine a routine EKG came back abnormal, prompting Isaiah to get further testing.   A follow-up MRI revealed an enlarged aortic artery and blood work confirmed it was Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects the body’s connective tissue.  Some Marfan features – for example, aortic enlargement – can be life-threatening.

Going off life-long advice from his mother, Isaiah, who was a 2013 NIT Champion with Baylor and named Big 12 All-Defensive Team in 2014, has vowed to make this his story, not his excuse.  He has turned the heartbreaking news into a positive, releasing his Dream Again limited-edition tee to help support the Marfan Foundation.”
