"We're going to cannibalize that market in August and September, if we can." -- Pat Riley, June 26.

Did you catch Tom Thibodeau over the weekend? Our Bulls Guy K.C. Johnson quoted the coach as saying that Derrick Rose is “anxious to get started.’’

A coach goes from the Boston Celtics to the Los Angeles Clippers? Is that an earthquake? No, it's Red Auerbach turning over in his grave.

MINNEAPOLIS — Nate Robinson showcased the full effect of his mercurial nature, goading J.J. Barea into a technical foul, stuffing the box score with 22 points and 10 assists and making sure the postgame locker room sounded like detention hall with...
