    Lebron James,Kobe Bryant,  Andre Iguodala

    Forbes released its top 10 list of off-the-court NBA earners this week, and not surprisingly, a couple of the game’s biggest stars lead the pack. Before we get to the complete list, something stands out when looking at the dollars the top NBA athletes rake in, especially when compared to other sports’ stars. Thanks to…

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Doc Rivers

    Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan have played 1,638 minutes together this season — 61.7 percent of the Clippers’ total minutes this season. The next big man on the minutes list in Ryan Hollins and he has played 406 minutes. Total. Doc Rivers is riding the Griffin/Jordan combo hard because he has no choice — Hollins,…

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:32 PM EST

    2014 NBA All-Star Game

    NEW ORLEANS – Blake Griffin has shown a much rounder game this season — his midrange game is solid, he has a variety of post moves and counters, his handles have stepped up the past few years. Yet it’s the dunks we want to see, and Griffin understands that and put on a high-flying show…

  5. Karl Malone is a big Anthony Davis fan

    NEW ORLEANS — Right now it’s a serious debate about who is the best power forward in the game — LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Love lead most lists, Blake Griffin is trying to muscle in on the list, but guys like Tim Duncan and Dirk Nowitzki still have a say in the matter. If five…

  6. All-Star 2014: The Standouts

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:40 AM EST

    NBA-All-Star-Game-2014-starters

    First, the obvious: The NBA All-Star Game is different from a normal basketball game. Apathy often reigns supreme, especially on defense, in this yearly exhibition, and there’s a premium on flashy play instead of solid, efficient basketball. For some players, it’s a dream format, while it’s less than ideal for others. In short, how a…

  7. Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony shoot East to win in highest scoring NBA All-Star Game ever

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:18 AM EST

    2014 NBA All-Star Game

    NEW ORLEANS — The NBA All-Star Game is never exactly a defensive showcase, it’s an exhibition. But this year’s version was an analytic lover’s dream: Three pointers and dunks. A lot of them. In the highest-scoring NBA All-Star Game ever, the East beat the West 163-155. This was the kind of showcase of athleticism the…

  8. John Wall on LeBron: “I don’t think he is a big dunk contest person”

    Feb 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is stepping up his game. He admitted Friday when speaking to the media before the All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest that in games he holds back — his fear of missing and embarrassing himself makes him go the safe route rather than to show off. Saturday night he’s in the dunk contest and he…

  9. Blake Griffin leaves door open for Slam Dunk Contest return

    Feb 13, 2014, 7:15 PM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Ten of the 13 Slam Dunk Contest champions since Vince Carter have defended their title the following year. One exception was Nate Robinson, who bowed out after winning back-to-back Dunk Contests for for his second and third titles in the event. Another was Fred Jones, who was injured. The third? Blake Griffin. Griffin won the…

  10. Blake Griffin drops 36 and 10 on Portland, plus a few dunks (VIDEO)

    Feb 13, 2014, 11:29 AM EST

    Boston Celtics  v Los Angeles Clippers

    In the Lamarcus Aldridge vs. Blake Griffin, give the latest round to Griffin. On points. A lot of points. Blake Griffin had 36 points and 10 rebounds in a defense optional game (apparently), which played to the Clippers strengths. Los Angeles won the game 122-117. Griffin had the kind of big numbers, highlight-filled game that had fans…

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to buy jeans for an Olympic skier… DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors. He certainly looked like an All-Star before hopping on a plane to New Orleans — 31 points on 11-of-19 shooting, five rebounds, three assists. Granted, he was being covered by Kyle Korver…

  12. Clippers hold off Trail Blazers for win… can these two meet in playoffs, please?

    Feb 13, 2014, 3:21 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    If the playoffs started today, the Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers would meet in the first round… please let that happened. Defense? Who needs it? We want Blake Griffin vs. LaMarcus Aldridge. We want dunks and threes. This matchup would just be entertaining. When these two teams first met the day after Christmas…

  13. John Wall: People see me as a No. 1 pick who hasn’t done anything

    Feb 11, 2014, 4:22 PM EST

    John Wall, LeBron James

    Professional athletes love to talk about all the people who don’t believe in them, even if everyone believes in them. Some get creative. Throughout his NBA career, Michael Jordan referenced a high school coach cutting him. That was because nobody really doubted Jordan during his time at North Carolina and with the Chicago Bulls. But…

  14. There is zero chance the Knicks trade Carmelo Anthony, can we stop talking about it?

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:44 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    I’ve been surprised how often this has come up lately. During radio talk show interviews, in emails, I even had a friend ask me: Are the Knicks trading Carmelo Anthony? No. Not even close. I’m not sure how this delusion even became a talking point. Yes, the Knicks do know Anthony can opt out of…

  15. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  16. Blake Griffin with back-to-back windmill alley-oop throwdowns (VIDEO)

    Feb 10, 2014, 8:45 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Philadelphia “defense” provided a blank canvas on which the Los Angeles Clippers could create whatever art they wanted Sunday night (Los Angeles led 100-51 after three quarters). And when you let the Clippers do whatever they want, you get alley-oops. Chris Paul was back to throw them and Blake Griffin was finishing them with…

  17. Sunday night NBA grades: It’s Kevin Durant’s world we just live in it

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:08 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Jeopardy to see what all the Arthur Chu fuss is about…. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. If you are going to win the MVP award you need a couple monster games on national television. Durant delivered that on Sunday — 41 points, 10…

  18. Clippers embarrass Sixers, coast to 45-point win

    Feb 10, 2014, 12:44 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Los Angeles Clippers won by 45 and it wasn’t that close. Seriously. Sunday night was just a perfect storm of everything going right for the Clippers and everything going wrong for the Sixers. This was a game where the Clippers were ahead 100-51 after three quarters and went on to win 123-78. Here are…

  19. Blake Griffin on the Dunk Contest: ‘It’s something I would never do again’

    Feb 9, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    blake griffin dunk contest

    Blake Griffin won the 2011 Dunk Contest by doing something that had never been done previously, and won’t be duplicated again. The man jumped over a car. While we can debate whether or not that sounds a lot more impressive than it actually was, the vibe at Staples Center was electric when the car was…

  20. LeBron says he should be Defensive Player of the Year

    Feb 7, 2014, 12:55 PM EST

    Heat vs. Spurs

    It’s going to be Roy Hibbert. If you were going to bet on one sure thing out of the NBA’s awards this season, you should bet on Roy Hibbert being named Defensive Player of the Year. More than Durant as MVP or Michael Carter-Williams as Rookie of the Year, Hibbert is a lock for DPOY.…

  21. Mario Chalmers fined $5,000 for flop against Blake Griffin (VIDEO)

    chalmers

    That play from Wednesday night worked for Mario Chalmers — he drew and offensive foul on Blake Griffin. He also flopped — and that’s the second time this season he’s been caught flopping so the league came down on him with a $5,000 fine this season. Yes, a whopping $5,000. To be clear, do the…

  22. Giannis Antetokounmpo to compete in Skills Challenge during NBA All-Star Weekend

    Feb 6, 2014, 6:14 PM EST

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Typically, rookies don’t get noticed. Typically, players from overseas need more time to build an American following. Typically, Milwaukee Bucks are ignored. Giannis Antetokounmpo is definitely atypical. “The Greek Freak” has wowed fans all season with his long arms, diverse skillset and outward happiness. He’s been so impressive, he’ll be competing in Skills Challenge –…

  23. Heat, Clippers had “Dunkfest 2014″ Wednesday night (VIDEO)

    Feb 6, 2014, 3:59 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers can put on show. LeBron James and the Miami Heat can throw it down with the best of them. When the two teams got together at Staples Center Wednesday night it was “Dunkfest 2014.” It was an amazing show of athleticism. The Miami Heat raced out early and…

  24. Clippers should get Chris Paul back on court Sunday

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:44 AM EST

    Chris Paul

    The Clippers have gone 11-6 since Chris Paul went out Jan. 3 with a separated shoulder. It’s been an impressive run, with Blake Griffin stepping up and showing off a more well-rounded game. In those 17 games the Clippers have averaged 111.7 points per 100 possessions, best in the NBA. It makes you wonder how…

  25. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…
