  1. DeAndre Jordan dunks so hard he hurts teammate Collison (VIDEO)

    Oct 19, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    The reports of Lob City’s death was an exaggeration. While Blake Griffin doesn’t want to talk about it because he wants the Clippers to be seen as serious contenders — it’s time to put away childish things  — the Clippers are still going to throw down lobs. They should, if the goal is to find…

  2. Clippers are covering up Lakers’ championship banners at Staples Center

    Oct 18, 2013, 11:03 PM EDT

    lakers banners

    The Clippers are in the odd and historically unfortunate situation of sharing an arena with the storied Los Angeles Lakers franchise. It makes for an awkward game night when the Clippers are the home team, considering one of the walls of the arena is covered with large banners representing all of the Lakers’ 16 NBA…

  3. Chris Paul, J.J. Redick bury hatchet on long-running feud

    Oct 17, 2013, 8:39 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, J.J. Redick

    Chris Paul and J.J. Redick didn’t get along. It started down on Tobacco Road, where Redick started at Duke and Paul at Wake Forest, but it was more than just that. This was Redick punched Paul when they met at the Jordan camp kind of feud. (Truth be told, I had a little more respect…

    DeAndre Jordan

    Last season: The Clippers finished the regular season with a franchise best 56 wins, good enough for the fourth seed in the West and home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs over the Memphis Grizzlies. L.A. went up two games to none in the series, before Memphis came back to win the…

  5. DeAndre Jordan gets loose for the fast break slam (VIDEO)

    Oct 13, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    DeAndre Jordan is going to be possibly the most important player for the Clippers this season. Doc Rivers has already tabbed him as being part of the team’s so-called Big Three along with Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, and Rivers has been grooming Jordan to use his athleticism to anchor the defense much in the…

  6. Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, CP3 swing by Jimmy Kimmel (VIDEO)

    Oct 11, 2013, 12:57 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan

    I’m sure you didn’t watch Jimmy Kimmel last night because you were reading “The Moons of Jupiter” by Alice Munro, so here is what you missed when the Clippers’ Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan swung by the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live. 1. It takes two buffalos to make a pair of Kanye-style…

    Welcome to PBT’s regular roundtable on issues around the NBA, where our writers weigh in on the topic of the day. Today: Who will win the NBA Rookie of the Year Award? Kurt Helin: There’s a formula to this — you need a guy with the ball in his hand on a bad team that is…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

    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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  17. 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…

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

    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…

    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…

    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.…

  21. 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 —…

    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…

    Gary Payton to Shawn Kemp may have been the greatest alley-oop combination ever.

    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.…
