Baron Davis

  1. Cavaliers bring out big gun… well Baron Davis, for Heat

    Mar 29, 2011, 2:02 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    There has been less hype, maybe there will be less venom when the Heat return to Cleveland for the second time this Tuesday. The game was not even a sell out hours before tip off. Maybe it will be more basketball and less circus. We can hope, anyway. But make no mistake the Cavs want…

  2. Mo Williams was just what the Clippers needed

    Mar 22, 2011, 10:31 PM EST

    Mo Williams Clippers

    On any given night, Baron Davis can be a better player than Mo Williams. Davis, when he is on, can be one of the more dynamic point guards in the league. Davis sees the court and sets up teammates in a way Williams does not. But Williams — the more consistent scorer — is a…

  3. Police arrest “knife-wielding” man on Staples Center floor before Clippers game

    Mar 19, 2011, 3:49 PM EST

    police-staples-center

    A 12:30 p.m. local start time for a game between the Clippers and Cavaliers at Staples Center — especially on the first weekend of the NCAA college basketball tournament — isn’t likely to get many folks excited. Unfortunately for police, one man decided to bring the excitement to the arena himself. The Associated Press reports…

  4. Report: Cavs could move Baron Davis again next season (if there is a next season)

    Mar 13, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cavaliers put quite a bit of extra salary into Baron Davis at the deadline, mostly to acquire the Clippers’ first round pick. But Davis is still a capable player when motivated, and could be a veteran difference maker on an up and coming team, if the Cavs really had anyone who was up and…

  5. Baron Davis leaves Cavaliers due to death in family

    Mar 9, 2011, 12:42 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v New York Knicks

    Baron Davis has looked pretty good in his three games with the Cavaliers, scoring 18 points a game on 47.5 percent shooting (60 points better than what he did for the Clippers). He’s also hitting 55.6 percent of his threes. But now he’s gone for a few games. Davis has left the team to be…

  6. Cavaliers Antawn Jamison out 5-7 weeks with broken finger

    Feb 28, 2011, 8:09 PM EST

    Antawn Jamison

    Because the Cavaliers season hasn’t been rough enough, when they had finally won three of their last five and had a couple quality wins, you get this…. Antawn Jamison, the Cavaliers leading scorer, will be out at least five weeks following surgery on his left pinkie finger due to an injury he suffered Sunday. The…

  7. PBT Friday Morning One Liners

    Feb 25, 2011, 11:07 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    So remember how everybody around the league said this was going to be a slow trading deadline…. Danny Ainge spins that his deadline deal helps the Celtics win now. Baron Davis and Byron Scott are friends now. Everything is good. Nothing to worry about there. Nope. Can’t see any problems. How the O.J. Mayo to…

  8. Cavaliers’ move for the future could easily backfire

    Feb 24, 2011, 2:31 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Cleveland Cavaliers will have another lottery pick with which to establish a young core for the future, but they had better hope that in their trade deadline deal — which netted the Clippers’ Baron Davis and the aforementioned pick for Mo Williams — the only price they pay is measured in salary committed and…

  9. Clippers trade Baron Davis to Cavaliers for Mo Williams

    Feb 24, 2011, 3:22 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    This is why they are the Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s about compounding mistakes. The Clippers and Cavaliers have agreed to a trade that sends point guard Baron Davis and a 2011 first-round pick to the Cavaliers for Mo Williams and Jamario Moon, according to Marc Spears at Yahoo. This is a huge win for the Clippers.…

  10. You’ll never believe it, but Blake Griffin had a monster dunk

    Feb 14, 2011, 8:20 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    Is there a better way to start off your week than with a Blake Griffin dunk? Well, sure there is, but we’re not that kind of site. Best part of this all-oop from Sunday against the Raptors, watch Baron with the behind-the-back dribble for no particular reason. Which is very Baron. Of late he has…

  11. NBA players flexible when it comes to yoga

    Yoga Aid Challenge 2009 Takes Place Around Australia

    My wife (if I tried to go with a cute name like Mrs. BasketballTalk I’d be sleeping on the couch for a week, so we’ll stick with wife) has long said that there needs to be a class called “Yoga for dudes.” Men tend to turn away from the crunchy “be at one and breathe…

  12. Fans to pick for All-Star Skills Challenge participants

    Is there anything as cool as watching an NBA player run some drills and dribble around cones? Of course, not. What could be? The NBA All-Star Skills Challenge returns to help people fall asleep on Friday night, Feb. 17, but the twist this year is that you and your fellow fans get to pick the…

  13. The other Clipper keys: DeAndre Jordan and Baron Davis

    Jan 19, 2011, 9:58 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Blake Griffin is a walking highlight factory. And not just for his dunks anymore, people are figuring out he can play the game. Eric Gordon has become the outside to Griffin’s inside for the Clippers. He’s the guy knocking down key threes — just like he did for Team USA when they were winning the…

  14. If you push Blake Griffin, the Clippers are pushing back

    Jan 18, 2011, 5:42 PM EST

    Blake Griffin

    Opposing teams have been trying to knock Blake Griffin off his game. Literally. As Griffin has emerged as an NBA star and powerhouse offensive force, other teams have started to combat his physical presence with some physical play of their own. Teams have been trying to push Griffin around. The Clippers noticed and as a…

  15. Quote of the day: Ron Artest loves him some In-N-Out burgers

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:03 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    “I could’ve bought 10,000 In-N-Out Burgers. I rather would’ve done that than give it away. I’m going to get 10 burgers [after Monday’s game]. I love In-N-Out. It’s addicting. It’s the only reason I’m here in L.A. If it wasn’t for In-N-Out Burger, I probably would’ve gone to Memphis or something.” —Ron Artest‘s reaction to…

  16. Blake Griffin, Lamar Odom ejected after tussle over hustle

    Jan 17, 2011, 12:33 PM EST

    James Capers, Ron Artest, Lamar Odom, Randy Foye, Ryan Gomes, Blake Griffin

    The game was over, in any real sense of the word. It was 99-90 Clippers with 5.7 seconds left. Randy Foye would shoot his free throws, the Lakers would dribble out the clock and the Clippers would have beaten their second elite team in a week. But it didn’t end quietly. As Foye shot and…

  17. Why the Clippers are winning — things got simpler and players bought in

    Jan 14, 2011, 1:24 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    Wednesday night the Clippers had their coming out party, beating the Miami Heat at their own game — the Clippers were more athletic, they were the ones hitting threes, they were the ones carving up a defense with penetration. Those Clippers are radically different from the ones that started the season 1-13. What happened? While…

  18. Video proof: Baron Davis still has hops

    Jan 13, 2011, 10:15 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    We were telling you this in talking about the Clippers win over the Heat — Baron Davis has been playing well lately. He’s not running down and just jacking up threes early in the clock (well, one time against Miami), he’s running the offense. Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro talked about how he brings some…

  19. Baron Davis says he doesn’t want Clippers to trade him

    Dec 27, 2010, 8:41 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers are shopping Baron Davis, hoping to move him and his contract that has two years and $28.6 million left after this season. Chris Kaman has been mentioned as part of those talks in hopes of sweetening the pot. But Davis doesn’t want to be traded, he told Chris Tomasson of FanHouse. “It’s tough…

  20. Michael Jordan aggressive on trade front to revamp Bobcat roster

    Dec 23, 2010, 1:51 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    Michael Jordan has seen enough and it’s not just the coaching position that is getting an overhaul. Multiple reports or trade talks out there suggest Jordan is going to be aggressive in revamping a mismatched and unimpressive Bobcats roster. Sam Amick of FanHouse reports one deal being discussed with Portland. Bobcats and Portland have discussed…

  21. Report: Bobcats talking to Clippers about Baron Davis trade

    Dec 23, 2010, 9:11 AM EST

    Image (1) nba_davis1-thumb-250x185-5464.jpg for post 411

    Right now Baron Davis is seen in Los Angeles as the anchor on the Clippers rebuilding plans, as such they have been looking for someone to take his contract off their hands. That could be the recently shaken up Bobcats — who should be trying to rebuild themselves — according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo.…

  22. Winderman: What other onerous contracts could be traded?

    Dec 22, 2010, 4:29 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Well, the Magic, Wizards and Suns showed us, didn’t they? More to the point, they shut us up. “No one is taking on Gilbert’s deal.” “The Magic aren’t unloading Rashard’s contract.” “The Suns are stuck with Turkoglu.” We all either said it or thought it. For years, the crutch in shooting down the wildest trade…

  23. Did you see what Blake Griffin did last night?

    Dec 21, 2010, 2:06 PM EST

    Blake Griffin

    We are seriously considering just making this a daily feature on this blog. Because every night the Clippers’ Blake Griffin steps on the court some spectacular in-game dunk happens and we want you to see the video. But that is only three or four nights a week and this is a seven-day-a-week feature we’re considering.…

  24. Mark Cuban tries not to yell at players, chooses refs instead

    Image (1) cuban-thumb-250x166-11958.jpg for post 2059

    Mark Cuban tries not to, which is more than we can say for Donald Sterling. If you are invested — emotionally and financially — as an NBA owner, you bet you would get frustrated when your team doesn’t play well. Los Angeles Clippers owner Sterling has taken that frustration out by heckling players during games,…

  25. Clippers owner Donald Sterling now heckling Baron Davis, too

    Dec 13, 2010, 10:51 AM EST

    Image (1) dsterling-thumb-250x250-18407.jpg for post 3716

    “Why are you in the game?” “Why did you take that shot?” “You’re out of shape!” Clippers fans have been yelling that at Baron Davis for years. Now that is what Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been yelling at Davis, Marc Spears of Yahoo reports. Apparently Sterling has taunted other players as well, but like…
