When I have the time, I’ll be posting and commenting on some of the late-breaking news and tweets in the evening. Don’t get used to any consistency, my day varies wildly and without any prior notice. Fair warning.
Tonight’s tweets of interest:
Notwithstanding the adorable doggie, this is exactly what my face looks like when we go for it on 4th down. Just not real big on it.
USA Basketball cut Washington's John Wall, Bradley Beal and Atlanta's Paul Millsap today, sources told Yahoo Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) August 4, 2014
Feh. Wall’s better than Irving, in my opinion, and this is just Krzyzewski rewarding his former player. Whatever. He’s the coach, he gets to make the call.
Still 17 players left for 12 Team USA spots after reported cuts of Wall, Beal & Millsap. Davis considered a lock. Cousins still has a shot.— ExCats (@ExCats) August 4, 2014
I want Davis and Cousins to be the starting 4 and 5 respectively. I don’t expect to get my wish. Mason Plumlee will probably get Krzyzewski love, Cuz the boot.
Okay, yeah, I’m being a negative jerk, my apologies. I just really want some positive reinforcement for Boogie, and I don’t trust Krzyzewski to give it to him. He deserves the nod in my view, but again, K gets the call, and … well, nepotism R us when it comes to Duke. To be fair Krzyzewski gets a lot of latitude due to his success recently, and he deserves it.
Looks like it’s Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love. I found this observation interesting:
I feel bad for Andrew Wiggins. Goes from fastbreak lob catcher/wing defender on a possible LeBron title team to Face of the Timberwolves— Andy Glockner (@AndyGlockner) August 4, 2014
He has a point. "The Face of the Timberwolves" is not the job I’d want if I were… well, anybody.

I can feel the celebration out there. Looks like we’re nearly there!
As summer has gone on have to admit I've become less & less impressed with 2015 hoops class at the top. Its a mishmosh. Only a few standouts— Greg (@GregNJ) August 4, 2014
This sounds right to me.
That’s all for tonight. Enjoy.
