Take it from Twitter: A sports perspective from the Northwest
Hire Becky Hammon!
News came out today that Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon is going to interview for the Milwaukee Bucks head coaching vacancy.
Hammon is currently the league's first female assistant coach and will be the first to interview for a head-coaching job in the league.
Ian Karmel was having none of the hate for Hammon on twitter.
The newest Seahawks
Shaq Griffin, the Seahawks 5th round pick in April's NFL Draft, got a little over his skis in the Seahawaks first practice.
Pete Carroll was quoted saying, "We had to slow him down some early on in the practice and in the walkthrough; he was going too hard. So we had to chill him out a little bit."
It should be interesting to see if Griffin can lock on to a roster spot as the off-season progresses.
A Championship Game coming to Portland!
The National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) and Portland Thorns FC today announced that Providence Park will host the 2018 NWSL Championship match on Saturday, Sept. 22, at 1:30 p.m. (Pacific) on Lifetime.
This will be the third NWSL playoff game Providence Park has hosted.
Get all the details at the team website.
It's more than a game!
Blazer5 Gaming, the 2k team that represents the Portland Trail Blazers, has been on an impressive run this week at the tip-off tournament. They took a 5-0 record into the Championship Game but came up short despite a furious second half comeback after trailing by as many as 22 points.
You can get lots of highlights from the game on the team's twitter page.
Kevin Love doing work
If you follow the NBA, you probably follow Nate Jones and he gave local dude Kevin Love, some love on Twitter today after his 21 pt, 16 reb performance as he and LeBron James defeated the Raptors to take a 3-0 series lead.
It seems that it has turned into a 'thing' to bash on Kevin Love on Twitter, but as Jones points out, Love is still a force to be reckoned with in this league.
