So sounds like sixers are shoppin okafor and noel. I like the move. Mostly cuz i saw that video of okafor knockin that guy out on street. And okafor looked like a thug. Pants hangin off butt. And that was enough to drop him from me ever wanting him. Good character is the most important thing when scouting in my eyes. Nothing is more important than good character. And jerry colangelo knows that. Good to see there changing their thinking. Not sure bout noel. But i would want his length on my squad.

Klay is money. Still cant believe warriors won that game. Okc let that one get away. Game 7 is gonna be a doozy. Warriors got to be the favs though. I think klay is a better shooter than steph. When klay pulls up i feel better about it goin in rather than when steph pulls up. Straight money.

NBA player Daniel Gibson accused of breaking man's jaw after he spoke to Gibson's wife, singer Keyshia Cole.
The incident occurred July 8 at a club in the 300 block of Andrew Higgins Street in New Orleans, according to court records. Gibson and Cole walked by the man, who allegedly thanked Cole for "keeping it real." Cole had recently performed at the Essence Festival in New Orleans.
The man then turned to tell a friend something, and Gibson allegedly punched the man in the jaw, court records said. Bystanders restrained Gibson while the victim was escorted out of the club.
The man was taken to a local hospital, where doctors determined his jaw had been fractured, court records said. The victim later identified Gibson as his attacker in a photograph line-up.
Gibson told TMZ he looks forward to being vindicated when the facts come out.

Acquiring Scola is maybe the best move the Pacers have put together this offseason. Scola is excited to be a valuable piece on a championship contender and SB Nation's Tom Ziller believes this could be the move that puts the Pacers over the top in the east. But there's a lingering cough from Indiana's bench revamp last year that might cause a brief pause. So why are this year's moves better? Last year, the Pacers' additions were going to be excellent pieces for Indiana's success if: If Green can replicate his performance in New Jersey. If Augustin can be a Darren Collison-like acquisition with improved passing. This year, the additions are going to be excellent pieces because. With the exception of Copeland, Indiana swung for proven guys on good teams like Watson and Scola (and found an all-too obvious emergency upgrade with Donald Sloan).
Was it a high price to pay for Scola? When taking into account the cap implications of not having to pay Green and a future first rounder, then no. Scola's non-guaranteed deal in 2014-15 helps the matter even more because now the Pacers are in a greater position to retain their core beyond Paul George while not giving up any chance of winning now. The move to shore up Indiana's 2014 bench should also give Indiana a more realistic shot at landing at the top of the Eastern Conference, something the team will be searching for in order to get their potential Game 7's in Indianapolis. Of course, the Pacers won't be without their competition in an increasingly top heavy Eastern Conference, but there's no reason to believe Indiana can't beat any of them anymore.
The Clippers are another team who have expressed interest in Blair and they also can only offer the minimum.
