1). Cleveland Cavaliers SG Iman Shumpert seems to be saying something here……
Hatred in sports is healthy. Hate it or love it. Just remember to respect it. the @NBA is bringing the hate back. And the fans love it!— Iman Shumpert I (@imanshumpert) November 30, 2016
But I don’t think teammate J.R. Smith got the memo.
2). Glenn “Doc” Rivers gets tossed from a game and he ain’t too happy about it either
3). When Dwight Howard isn’t getting kicked out of games or fighting with fans he still provides the maximum entertainment value
4). Everything about the Atlanta Hawks 2017 season is masterfully broken down in 140 characters or less by our own Kris Willis
After 19 games, the Hawks lead the NBA in defensive rating at 97.9 but are just 25th in offensive rating at 100.5— Kris Willis (@Kris_Willis) December 1, 2016
5). Whatever Willis didn’t say in 140 characters or less about the current state of the Hawks we said here.
6). Congratulations to former Atlanta Hawks All-Star Al Horford and his wife Amelia Vega on the birth if their second child. Horford decided to skip his game against the Miami Heat to witness his daughter coming into this world and Boston Sports Radio and TV Personality Mike Felger didn’t think Horford should have missed the game.
7). Tweet of the Week has to go out to Memphis Flyer reporter Kevin Lipe in response to the overwhelming trade suggestions following the injury to Memphis Grizzlies PG Mike Conley.
Grizzlies fans, if you’re trading Deyonta Davis because of a 6-week injury to Mike Conley, go throw your laptop off the Big River Crossing— Kevin Lipe (@FlyerGrizBlog) November 30, 2016
8). Portland Trail Blazers PG Damian Lillard is incredible……and here’s one reason why.
9). As a New York Knicks fan I sometines gets disgusted with all the Carmelo Anthony ISO ball the Knicks use. Especially late in ballgames but then Anthony does this and I don’t mind so much!
10). Remember Baylor basketball player Isiah Austin? Right before the 2014 draft, he was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome and was told to stop playing basketball. Experts saw Austin as a late first round or early second round pick so the NBA did him a solid and made him an honorary first round pick…….Great news! Austin has been medically cleared to play again so hopefully one day soon we will be seeing him in an NBA arena.
