At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
Probably everybody who is still interested in the NBA listens to Zach Lowe's podcasts, but for those who don't here is a great interview with Stan Van Gundy.
Key issues that SVG discusses:
1) Insight into the non-signing of Greg Monroe
2) Defensive switching on pick and rolls
3) Orlando vs. Detroit for attracting free agents
4) "Form a fucking wall!"
4a) "trying to be less controversial. . ."
Long story short: So a couple days ago Clippers free agent center DeAndre Jordan said he was going to sign a contract with the Mavericks.
Then today the Clippers decided they really wanted him back. So Doc Rivers and a few of the Clippers players came over to DeAndre's house...and are staying with him until midnight tonight when the free agency deadline ends (or something, don't know).
Which is basically a hostage situation to prevent Mark Cuban/the Mavs from stopping by. Or a friendly slumber party with your old (and future?) teammates. Weird. The NBA is really weird.
Also this tweet is pretty funny:

Hopefully this helps them win another title and Duncan can go out on top. I'm a Pistons fan, but I've always liked the Spurs and their team concept. The way they dismantled LeBron and the Heat two years ago, was just awesome.
I am subjected to some unbearable sports fanchises(I live in CT) the New York Knicks are one of them. Occasionally I will put them on to see if Hardaway Jr. is in the game, well today it paid off! They made NBA history with the Orlando Magic, managing to only score 15 combined points in the 2nd quarter, that is the lowest ever since the shot clock was introduced.
NBA obviously has scoring issue. Time to shorten the shot clock to 18 seconds.
Here's to the Knicks overpaying and giving the max to Greg Monroe next year. Slow board day. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
It was just announced that Derrick Rose will miss the rest of the season because of another knee injury. What do you think we'll see first, Derrick Rose play 82 games in a season or Jim Harbaugh coach the Raiders?
