I had a blast talking with @EconTalker about Steph Curry, investing, Shakespeare, asylum judges, my pathetic basketball career and THE HOT HAND. https://t.co/iWHdA6S9Ro

What are the long-term effects of the coronavirus? @louiseradnofsky and I asked 17 experts. The short answer: We don't know. The longer answer: They're concerned about fatigue, blood clots, lung scarring and heart problems in athletes. https://t.co/TVfnyQSZc2

I wrote about bass-fishing in the NBA bubble, including the rumor the NBA re-stocked the pond so the players would catch fish. Not true, says league spokesman Mike...Bass. That's right: BASS DENIES BASS I basically wrote this column for that line. https://t.co/M7Oq4IxZ3V

The NBA wanted to start... a football league? @Bachscore and I took a time machine back to the 1990s for this story about secret discussions of a very strange idea and something I never knew about the NBA: https://t.co/h6Gsj10Wvx

What if the NBA started a football league? The league and media partners explored the idea — twice. With @bzcohen: https://t.co/y1mDmiXkzB

UNACCEPTABLE by @melissakorn and @jenniferlevitz is the definitive story of the college admissions scandal that's way richer than you ever imagined. I couldn't put the book down and ripped through it in a weekend. Read it! https://t.co/Z77yDmlmMX

"None of my friends in the States believed me." I talked to the Americans who played with Luka Doncic on Real Madrid. They were some of the first people to look at a skinny teen from Slovenia and see the future of the NBA. https://t.co/8aRX29tguC

Checked in with the one and only @GrizzBongoLady, who broke out her bongos as a virtual fan: https://t.co/oFfCKZsKM7

Eddy Alvarez is the best story in sports right now. The guy went from winning an Olympic medal in short track speedskating to playing Major League Baseball. It’s just completely insane. https://t.co/fCDq20SD0h

A speedskater who medaled at the Winter Olympics is now playing Major League Baseball. I can't get over how crazy this is. WSJ story with @JoshRobinson23 and @jareddiamond: https://t.co/fCDq20SD0h

After winning an Olympic medal in Sochi, Eddy Alvarez made the biggest decision of his speedskating career: he quit speedskating to play baseball. This week, he finally reached the majors. With @bzcohen and @jareddiamond: https://t.co/9m5q1UiGgE

I obviously loved this part of @jj_redick’s pod with Damian Lillard. So cool to eavesdrop as two of the best shooters on earth discuss the hot hand. https://t.co/v0WxFHYimq

NBA players have made more free throws and corner 3s in the bubble. Soccer players scored more on free kicks in empty stadiums. Are the world's best athletes now better at shooting? @JoshRobinson23 and I explore the pandemic effect: https://t.co/579vp6CVHc

“Twenty-nine out of 30 is a pretty good batting average if you’re playing baseball," MLB's medical director told me in an interview Thursday evening. By Friday morning, that batting average had dropped. The Marlins aren't the only issue anymore. https://t.co/BmHYPxuNNE

Boban stayed in shape during the NBA shutdown by using his wife’s home gym. https://t.co/Ef3S8BXj1J

This is one more thing I love about Boban Marjanovic: He managed to have the best game of his NBA career on the weirdest night in NBA history. https://t.co/BudbOptkp5

NEW: For tennis players returning to work, the question isn’t which tournaments they want to play. It’s which countries will let them in. With @louiseradnofsky: https://t.co/bIpyXg77Ae
