Blake Griffin

  1. Blake Griffin sidelined with bone bruise to his left knee

    Oct 10, 2013, 10:03 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Jordan, Griffin, and Billups watch their team lose to Memphis Grizzlies during Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    The Clippers have high aspirations this season, thanks to bolstering their star lineup with some key offseason acquisitions, as well as landing a tenured and well-respected, defensive-minded head coach with a championship on his resume. But they’ll only get as far as the team’s collective health will take them, and early in the preseason, there…

  2. Clippers’ J.J. Redick out about 10 days with a bruised thigh

    Oct 10, 2013, 2:51 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    When the pulled muscles, sprained ankles and other assorted injuries that are just part of the NBA grind hit this season, few teams will be as deep and prepared as the Clippers. They are as deep a team as there is in the league (at least in the backcourt, up front… not so much). For…

  3. Mark Jackson’s challenge to Stephen Curry: Commit fewer turnovers

    Oct 7, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson, Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry is coming off of a breakout season for the Warriors, one in which he averaged career-bests in points, assists, and minutes played. But Warriors head coach Mark Jackson is a master motivator, and he wants Curry to continue to improve. So he provided him with a little project. The challenge he posed to…

  4. Doc Rivers says he didn’t want Clippers to trade DeAndre Jordan for Kevin Garnett

    Oct 5, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    At one point during the prolonged and somewhat messy divorce between Doc Rivers and the Celtics that resulted in the veteran head coach landing in Los Angeles to coach the Clippers, a “side deal” was in place that would have sent DeAndre Jordan to Boston in exchange for Kevin Garnett. The league doesn’t allow multi-step…

  5. Blake Griffin: “Lob City is done”

    Oct 3, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Bringing in Doc Rivers as coach has brought a palpable change around the Clippers — they are expected to contend for a title. Rivers is his usual positive self, but he doesn’t shy away from title talk. Rather, he is challenging the Clippers to live up to it — he told Chris Paul that the…

  6. LeBron James tops NBA’s worldwide jersey sales list

    Oct 2, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    LeBron James is coming off of back-to-back NBA titles and consecutive regular season MVP awards, while being widely recognized as the best basketball player on the planet. That last part was recently hammered home from a global popularity standpoint, as well. LeBron topped the league’s worldwide jersey sales list, in figures released on Wednesday. From…

  7. DeAndre Jordan randomly smells woman in store, wins at Vine

    Sep 30, 2013, 12:49 PM EDT

    "Call Of Duty:Ghosts" Multiplayer Global Reveal

    What kind of winning DeAndre Jordan does on the court this season remains to be seen. The Clippers are a very good team on paper but to make themselves contenders on the court it’s going to come down to Jordan (and Blake Griffin) being a defensive front line force, and Jordan staying on the court…

  8. Report: Louis Amundson gets invited to Clippers training camp

    Sep 25, 2013, 6:10 PM EDT

    Lou Amundson

    The Los Angeles Clippers are thin along the front line. Sure they start with the incredibly athletic pairing of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, but when they go to the bench (or when Jordan has to sit the fourth quarter) it is Ryan Hollins and Byron Mullens. And that’s it. Now Louis Amundson will try…

  9. Monday And-1 Links: Blake Griffin is a new dad (with Matt Leinart’s ex)

    Sep 23, 2013, 7:19 PM EDT

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Blake Griffin is a new proud father of Ford Wilson Cameron-Griffin, who was…

  10. Report: Paul George, Pacers finalizing five-year max contract

    Sep 22, 2013, 10:48 PM EDT

    Paul George

    Of the 15 players who made the All-NBA first, second or third team last season, Paul George was the youngest. On a related note, the 23-year-old is also arguably the most raw star in the league. Even though he just won Most Improved Player, George can become a a more-polished ball-handler and take his game…

  11. Why so many coaching changes? Well, money for one.

    Sep 18, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    New Boston Celtics Head Coach Stevens smiles during a news conference at the Celtics training center in Waltham

    There are nine first-time NBA coaches taking over teams this season. Nine. There were four other coaches who moved around on the carousel (Mike Brown, Mo Cheeks, Doc Rivers and Larry Drew). But by and large when teams decided to make a change this year they went with the new guy. Fans often like that…

  12. Kings to televise season opener without commercials

    Sep 17, 2013, 5:58 PM EDT

    Kings Sale Basketball

    On Oct. 30 when you tune in — or at least the people in Sacramento tune in — to watch the Kings season opener as they host the Denver Nuggets, there will be no commercials during the broadcast. You read that right, no commercials. Zero. The time that would normally be filled with a Blake…

  13. What do you do if the NBA doesn’t pan out and you have insane bounce?

    Sep 13, 2013, 3:03 PM EDT

    Michael Stewart & Hanif Munir, aka West Coast Dreamers

    Meet Michael “Air Dogg” Stewart and Hanif “Young Hollywood” Munir.  To say these guys have bunnies might be the understatement of the week. Stewart and Munir joined forces a few years back as West Coast Dreamers, and have since travelled the world showing off their amazing hops.  They’ve appeared in commercials, ads, you name it.…

  14. Apparently fans confuse Blake Griffin, Kris Humphries all the time

    Sep 13, 2013, 2:43 PM EDT

    Take Flight Media Event 2013

    Look at those images. Do Blake Griffin and Kris Humphries look alike to you? They have roughly the same build, Griffin is an inch taller and has 15 pounds or so on Humphries, but to the average person they are both just very tall, big men. They also are both recognizable in popular culture —…

  15. Gary Payton takes his era of point guards over today’s, calls him and Shawn Kemp ‘the original Lob City’

    Sep 7, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Gary Payton

    SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Gary Payton is one of a dozen people being enshrined as part of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame this weekend in Springfield, Mass. Leading up to this weekend, the Glove has made several noteworthy comments, which continued during Saturday’s press conference. Earlier this week, Payton said that John Stockton was…

  16. Hakeem Olajuwon says Blake Griffin could benefit from his teachings

    Sep 7, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Hakeem Olajuwon was one of the game’s best big men, and he’s been trying to impart some of his wisdom to a whole host of players over the last few offseasons. Guys ranging from Amar’e Stoudemire to Kobe Bryant to JaVale McGee have all worked with Olajuwon, and Dwight Howard is the latest project undertaken…

  17. 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…

  18. 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.…

  19. 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,…

  20. 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.…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
