Isaiah Thomas credits his teammates with lifting him up during an emotional time.
Rachel Nichols on what we lose when we lose Steve Kerr’s voice.
Nene almost retired last summer. Now he’s an integral part of Houston’s playoff run.
Whoops! Joe Ingles should have been a Clipper. Instead he’s helping to hurt L.A.
And finally: an adult Clippers fan was quite rude to a tiny Jazz fan during a bubble race, so the Jazz mascot avenged him by viciously attacking said Clippers fan. All is fair in love and bubble races.
Working in the Devils favor right now is the fact that they do have some younger pieces coming through the pipeline that appear as though they will be able to contribute to the NHL Really Cheap Jerseys team. Additionally, we have a new director of scouting in Paul Castron who helped to identify some key pieces for the Columbus Blue Jackets to draft in his time with them. Hopefully he will be able to do the same here in New Jersey in the long run; as a side note, that Michael McLeod pick is looking pretty good right now. With this in mind, another draft pick in the first round for either this season or more likely next could give the Devils an additional asset that will be contributing in a couple of years.
Kostin has two factors against him. First, he suffered a shoulder injury that ended his season months early. Second … he’s Russian. And it sucks that’s a factor, but Dallas Stars winger Valeri Nichushkin bolting for the KHL due to ice time last summer didn’t help the Russian stigma.
But Kostin is good. He’s a big, 6’3 winger that’s nearly impossible to dislodge from the puck and owns a good shot. Kostin would be a nice complimentary scorer for a Panthers team needing scoring size on the wings.
