  1. Top 10 Gary Payton alley-oops to Shawn Kemp (VIDEO)

    Sep 6, 2013, 4:04 PM EDT

    1996 NBA Finals Game 6:  Seattle SuperSonics vs. Chicago Bulls

    Gary Payton to Shawn Kemp may have been the greatest alley-oop combination ever. There are combos who will make a run at them (Chris Paul and Blake Griffin) but Payton to Kemp is the gold standard. With Payton going into the Hall of Fame this weekend, NBA.com put together a video of the 10 best…

  2. Impressive dunk over Shawn Kemp (VIDEO)

    Sep 5, 2013, 6:13 PM EDT

    shawn_kemp

    We’ve shown you this same dunk before by the same guy — that is Young Hollywood (a 5’10″ guy with hops who makes the rounds on dunking circuit and has done commercial) who did pretty much this exact same dunk over Blake Griffin. This time it’s over Shawn Kemp. One of the game’s legendary dunkers.…

  3. Watch some Clippers play a little flag football (VIDEO)

    Sep 3, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    We’re all ready for some football (remember the NFL season kicks off right here on NBC Thursday night). Blake Griffin and some other Clippers were ready as well and they took part in a flag football game for charity hosted by Matt Barnes and Snoop Dogg. Among the celebrities taking part are Griffin, DeAndre Jordan,…

  4. JaVale McGee beats child at pop-a-shot, talks some smack

    Sep 2, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets' McGee stuffs as Golden State Warriors' Jack looks on in the first quarter of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Denver

    We can only hope new Nuggets Brian Shaw watches this video from JaVale McGee‘s Instagram account and says “he’s right, I need to let him play more like Dirk Nowitzki and shoot some threes.” Not because it would be good for the Nuggets — it would be a disaster — but for the comedic value.…

  5. Antawn Jamison: “I would never count Kobe Bryant out of anything”

    Sep 2, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Kobe prepares to throw a basketball to fans while attending a youth basketball final match in Hong Kong

    Kobe Bryant has an obstacle in front of him, and that is when he is at his best. That is when he is most driven. Kobe at age 35 is working on a comeback from a ruptured Achilles that might have ended the career of lesser players. But Kobe was not going to let the…

  6. Report: A year ago, some Bucks officials wanted to cut Larry Sanders

    Aug 29, 2013, 12:22 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    There are issues with the Bucks signing Larry Sanders to a long-term, four-year, $44 million contract extension, but overall it’s probably not a terrible decision. Sanders has been accused of mailing it in at times, and was among the leaders in technical fouls last season, tying for third with Blake Griffin and Carmelo Anthony, and…

  7. Byron Mullens hopes to prove the doubters wrong with the Clippers

    Aug 28, 2013, 9:32 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Byron Mullens was one of the free agent signings made by the Clippers this offseason that was an attempt to hopefully boost their frontcourt depth. Once you get past Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan in the starting lineup, things begin to deteriorate rather quickly, with Mullens and Ryan Hollins the next bigs in off the…

  8. Doc Rivers embraces high expectations for Clippers

    Aug 23, 2013, 10:44 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Matt Barnes, Darren Collison, Jared Dudley, Ryan Hollins, Chris Paul, ,J.J. Redick

    On paper, the Los Angeles Clippers should be contenders. In reality, they got eliminated from the playoffs in the first round — they got up 2-0 on Memphis then were swept out of the playoffs. The Clippers started that series with a good plan, the Grizzlies adjusted and Los Angeles had no counters. They went…

  9. Caron Butler says nobody from Clippers called to tell him he was traded

    Aug 22, 2013, 6:36 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    It’s a common courtesy in the NBA — guys who are about to be traded hear about it from their agents and others around the league, but when the hammer drops the GM or coach or someone from the team calls with the formal notification. “Thank you for your service ” and all that jazz…

  10. DeAndre Jordan remains key to Clippers season

    Aug 21, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    "Call Of Duty:Ghosts" Multiplayer Global Reveal

    In a twist of fate, Doc Rivers is going to need a lot from DeAndre Jordan. Remember the Clippers were willing to ship out Jordan this summer to get Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers — a deal that David Stern killed (you can’t trade players for coaches) but told you exactly what the Clippers think…

  11. Another day, another huge Jamal Crawford pro-am showing (VIDEO)

    Aug 19, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    Some guys have games meant for the freestyle feel of pro-am games, guys who can just light it up in that up-tempo setting. Sure, Blake Griffin can put up numbers and throw a few down, but the guys who can really steal the show have the rock in their hands. Say, the Clippers Jamal Crawford,…

  12. Blake Griffin gets in on the highlights at Jamal Crawford’s Pro-Am in Seattle (VIDEO)

    Aug 18, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    First it was Kevin Durant and Spencer Hawes (seriously), and then it was Kyrie Irving, all showing out at Jamal Crawford‘s Pro-Am league in Seattle. On Saturday, it was Blake Griffin‘s turn. In terms of sick highlights and pure entertainment value, this probably doesn’t surpass what we saw Kyrie do a day earlier. But Griffin can…

  13. J.J. Redick is getting ready for Lob City (VIDEO)

    Aug 15, 2013, 6:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    J.J. Redick came to the Clippers as part of a three-team trade that sent Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler to the Suns, and Jared Dudley to Los Angeles. The Clippers were thought to have added Redick for his three-point shooting ability — L.A. was middle of the pack in that category in terms of percentage…

  14. Blake Griffin agrees with CP3: He needs to step up this year

    Aug 15, 2013, 10:44 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Chris Paul was pretty blunt about it — he thinks the Clippers can go as far as Blake Griffin takes them. That’s a lot of weight on Griffin’s shoulders, but he told Ramona Shelburne of ESPNLosAngeles.com that Paul was right. “[Paul] has a huge role on this team,” Griffin said Thursday in an interview with…

  15. Jason Williams with insane bounce pass alley-oop in Taiwanese exhibition (VIDEO)

    Aug 12, 2013, 11:35 AM EDT

    jason-williams

    Jason Williams has still got it. Maybe not the full NBA ready package, but he still has the flash that made “White Chocolate” a fan favorite for years. He was playing in a Taiwanese exhibition game recently and threw this bounce pass alley-oop. We saw John Wall do this to Blake Griffin in the All-Star…

  16. Report: Grizzlies sign Nick Calathes to two-year, nearly $2 million contract

    Aug 9, 2013, 4:35 PM EDT

    Nick Calathes

    Nick Calathes rated No. 6 in the 2009 NBA Draft, according to John Hollinger’s statistical system – behind only Ty Lawson, Blake Griffin, Tyreke Evans, Austin Daye* and Stephen Curry. Back then, there was nothing Hollinger could do about Calathes falling to No. 45 in the draft. Now an executive for the Grizzlies, Hollinger has…

  17. Who are Rookie of the Year favorites? Burke, Oladipo to start

    Aug 9, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT

    Trey Burke

    There’s a formula for who often wins the Rookie of the year. They have to be a good player, certainly. More than that, he needs to be a player with the ball in his hands and on a team where he is going to be asked to take on a lot of responsibility. Damian Lillard…

  18. In new ad, Blake Griffin is “The Endorser” (VIDEO)

    Aug 6, 2013, 12:49 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Blake Griffin is kind of everywhere with sponsorship deals — I kind of expected it would be him calling to interrupt LeBron James workout/Powerbeats commercial/Imagine Dragons jam session to pitch going to Subway for lunch. So nice job by Jordan Brand and Foot Locker to make a little play on Griffin the endorser, with a…

  19. Chris Paul says Clippers will go as far as Griffin takes them

    Aug 6, 2013, 12:11 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    The Los Angeles Clippers got better this summer — they needed shooting and got it with the additions of J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley. Those two will space the floor when Chris Paul drives the lane, they will give defenders something to think about as Blake Griffin makes a cut to the rim. Plus, both…

  20. 5’10″ guy does between-the-legs dunk over Blake Griffin (VIDEO)

    Aug 5, 2013, 4:48 PM EDT

    Clippers' Griffin slam dunks against Grizzlies during Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    I started arguing for this a little last season and I’m going to stick with it — if you’re going to let guys who never play off the end of the NBA bench that nobody at home knows fill the NBA All-Star Weekend Dunk contest, then why not let some of the real dunk contest…

  21. Latest Jordan Brand spot shows that when Blake Griffin is on your squad, you don’t miss (VIDEO)

    Aug 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    In the latest Jordan Brand spot featuring Blake Griffin, it’s clear that almost anyone can look good shooting jumpers as long as Griffin is there to clan up the mess. The ad is in support of the Super.Fly 2, which released on August 1 in four different colors. And if you’re in the L.A. area…

  22. ‘Melo, CP3, Griffin throw out simultaneous first pitch at Chinese baseball game (VIDEO)

    Aug 1, 2013, 3:05 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony Blake Griffin Chris Paul

    Well, that’s something you don’t see every day. Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul were all on a Nike Jordan Brand tour through Asia recently, selling some shoes and spreading the gospel of basketball… but mostly selling shoes. And as part of that they went to a baseball game and threw out a simultaneous first…

  23. Carmelo Anthony dodges talk of his plans next summer

    Jul 31, 2013, 10:26 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Five

    Carmelo Anthony can opt out of his contract next summer and he’s expected to do just that to lock down the security of a new longer deal — and he doesn’t really want to talk about it. He’ll talk about how he likes the offseason moves his Knicks made — picking up Andrea Bargnani and…

  24. First guess at who makes Team USA for 2014 World Championships

    Jul 27, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    USA Basketball Men's National Team Blue And White Game

    The FIBA World Cup – the basketball World Championships coming to Spain next summer — don’t play as big in the United States as the Olympics. It can get overlooked… unless Team USA loses, then newspaper columnists who hadn’t given the thing a sideways glance will pontificate on how this is some kind of disaster.…

  25. Report: Lakers not all that sold on Lamar Odom

    Jul 26, 2013, 8:59 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    For a while it seemed likely that the Lamar Odom would find his way back to Los Angeles with either the Clippers or Lakers. The Clippers have seemed to move on — they have Blake Griffin, Jared Dudley, Matt Barnes, Byron Mullens and Ryan Hollins who can play the forward spot. Interest there appears dead.…
