Ted Leonsis responds to L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling's alleged remarks

62

As I have stated, there should be zero tolerance for hatemongering.

Hate speech demonstrates an ignorance that is unacceptable, and I implore all of us to help eliminate any form of discrimination.

I have full confidence that Commissioner Silver will conduct a thorough investigation and act accordingly upon his findings.

From Ted's Take. Hat tip to Ottoman Empire for noting this in a comment yesterday.

Wittman agrees with BF that we shouldn't be popping champagne just yet

We still have not accomplished anything. We’ve won two games; you have to win four. That’s the mental edge that I want our guys to keep. There are people talking about what we’ve done in the first two games, but we have not accomplished anything in this series yet.

We’ll help with the wardrobe by distributing red-white-and-blue T-shirts created by CustomInk courtesy of GEICO that will create three distinct sections of Verizon Center. Sunday’s game will feature a rally towel giveaway, which is courtesy of GEICO, our presenting partner for the first round.

Ted Leonsis. I believe WizardsXtra came up with the idea.

Wittman on mid-range shots

219

"So you’re saying that a 15-foot open look is not good? "You take open shots. You take open shots. Where they are is dictated by what the defense does. If you predicate what kind of shot you’re going to take not based on what you’re doing reading the defense, you’re not going to get good shots. I just worry about goods shots. You know what? Those numbers you can stick… alright? You know, all you analytical people that take that… You take good shots, that’s the most important thing. Maybe we’re not taking good midrange shots, maybe we’re taking contested ones. I understand the numbers are there for a reason, we look at the numbers, but to sit there and… We got a good, open shot we’re taking, I don’t care where it is."

A great question posed by Kyle Weidie. Not sure what I think of this answer.

Wall on Kyrie

53

"It’s always tough [facing Kyrie]," Wall said following the game. "Everybody wants to know who is the best young point guard and who’s the best guy in the Eastern Conference. We both do things great for our team. He’s probably a better offensive guy, skill-wise, and can basically take over games with his skills. I’m more of a point guard that likes to get his teammates involved and am blessed with the talents and abilities to get hot and able to score the ball. Guys look at every time we play as a marquee matchup, so everybody is going to be tuned in for the next couple of years."

Great news

And perhaps the best news came when Wall said that his mother, Frances Pulley, is out of the hospital. "She's doing alright. They're still keeping an eye on her," he said. "She was able to go home today,"

Wittman downplays being over .500

30

"Everybody’s kind of making a big deal [that] we’re over .500," Wittman told LaVar and Dukes on 106.7 The Fan on Tuesday afternoon. "Holy crap. Let’s hope that’s not something we’re celebrating here. I want it to be something bigger than that. I want these guys to understand not so much we got over the hump, but why did we get over the hump, and how did we get over the hump, and how do we stay over the hump?

LeBron on accusations that he's been coasting this season

43

With two days off this weekend and a refreshing visit to the White House on Tuesday, James promises we'll see a different James against the 17-19 Washington Wizards. "We'll see Wednesday how I'm coasting," James said jokingly as he made his way into the Heat locker room on Monday. "You'll see the numbers I'll put up on Wednesday. Just watch."
