Milwaukee is about to offer Giannis a Supermax extension - and @WindhorstESPN  thinks it might be smart for the Bucks to take a page out of the Thunder playbook, but @SedanoESPN  and I are not sold...

Great chat with the man who holds all the cards going into tomorrow night's NBA draft: @Timberwolves  President@GerssonRosas . He tells us whether Minnesota wants to trade the top pick, and if not, whether they're going for fit, or best available. Plus, the latest on KAT:

The NBA will officially release its schedule on #TheJump  on Friday - buckle up for all the spicy matchups, big moments and well, gymnastics, it's gonna take to put on a season outside the Bubble. 📺3p ET/noon PT on ESPN come hang out...

The one and only @RicFlairNatrBoy  joins #TheJump  to talk about his @adidas  collab with @Dame_Lillard , why he's the godfather of swag, and how much NBA he watches (hint: unsolicited, he gave us his thoughts on Giannis's supermax deal). This. Was. So. Fun. Woooooooo...

This is the @SteveKerr  picture @realchriswebber  just mentioned on the Warriors-Nets broadcast. It is exceptional.

NBA announces it has postponed tonight’s Thunder-Rockets game.

Die Hard is a Christmas movie. That is all.

Change is slow and as we've seen today, the setbacks can be deeply painful. But change. can. happen. I am deeply grateful to the women of the WNBA for all the work they've done for the greater good, most recently fighting voter suppression in Georgia, but long beforehand as well.

There sure is a lot of too little, too late going on this week.

Just did a really cool interview with Kawhi and Kyle Lowry, about how they got here and everything this title means, and here’s what happened before we even started rolling. Special.

Doc Rivers with raw emotion and a thunderbolt cry for justice: "All you hear is Donald Trump & all of them talking about fear. We're the ones getting killed. We're the ones getting shot...It's amazing, we keep loving this country, and this country does not love us back."

Just spoke to Shaq - he said "I challenged him to get 50 and the mother****er got 60"

This is no small thing from owner Vivek Randivé after the team's game was disrupted by those protesting local police killing an unarmed man in his own grandmother's backyard. Listen to what he says, and compare that to what we've heard from owners in other sports

LeBron James sporting a hat in San Antonio tonight. Beto is running for the Senate seat in Texas that Ted Cruz holds right now.

The real story of & 's 14-year friendship: draft camp, playoff battles, ducking batteries, banana boats & so much more

Very impressed by players jumping In to help pay arena workers. But the players aren't the billionaires. Nearly half of NBA team owners are. Some - Mark Cuban, Tony Ressler & Dan Gilbert among them - will stilll be paying workers in some way. How about make it 30 for 30?

Damian Lillard told me he was walking into church when he saw the news about Kobe on his phone. He said even after it was confirmed the helicopter went down, he spent all day waiting to hear that Kobe had somehow jumped out safely. “That’s what kind of superhero he was.”

Okay this @Cavs  video of President Obama telling Ty Lue that JR Smith needs to put his shirt back on is AMAZING.
