    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.…

  4. 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.…

  5. Top this Blake: Guy Dupuy goes between the legs over a car for dunk (VIDEO)

    Jul 23, 2013, 12:56 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin car dunk

    We all remember Blake Griffin dunking over a car with a lob from Baron Davis out of the sunroof to win the Dunk Contest in what became the ultimate prop dunk. Even if JaVale McGee should have won that dunk contest we all remember Blake… and the Kia commercials that followed. Except that really wasn’t…

  6. Fall asleep around Blake Griffin, end up on the Web

    Jul 22, 2013, 11:17 AM EDT

    Clippers Raptors Basketball

    During the season, Blake Griffin was at the heart of the “Got ‘Em” trend where a photo was taken and posted of anyone who fell asleep on a team plane. It became a thing. Griffin was just on a long flight back from Asia with other Jordan brand players (Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and more)…

  7. Report: Heat, Rockets, Bulls, Clippers all interested in Camby

    Jul 18, 2013, 11:13 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Camby gestures while waiting for foul shot by Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in New York

    The Toronto Raptors are on the verge of buying out Marcus Camby. He was traded to Toronto as part of the Andrea Bargnani deal (have fun with that one Knicks) but the veteran didn’t want to spend the last couple years of his career with a rebuilding team. He wanted to go to a contender.…

  8. Report: LaMarcus Aldridge’s camp suggests trades to Blazers GM

    Jul 18, 2013, 10:29 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers

    LaMarcus Aldridge has two years left on his contract, which will pay the 27-year-old All Star forward $30.4 million. But there have been all kinds of rumblings about him wanting out of the Pacific Northwest, which puts Portland GM Neil Olshey in the same position the Jazz front office was with Deron Williams (and Denver…

  9. Report: Clippers nearing two-year deal with free agent big man Byron Mullens

    Jul 18, 2013, 12:04 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    The Clippers have had a strong offseason, shoring up plenty of areas on the roster with a variety of moves intended to push the team to the league’s top tier, or at the very least, further than the first round of the playoffs. The one area that L.A. is still sorely lacking in is frontcourt…

  10. Report: Raptors nearing buyout with Marcus Camby, who will receive interest from Clippers, Bulls and Rockets

    Jul 16, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v New York Knicks

    Marcus Camby wasn’t happy to be traded to the Raptors, who tried to flip him before the deal – also involving Andrea Bargnani – ever became official. When that didn’t happen, Camby again expressed his desire for a buyout or trade. Because of his high salary – $4,383,773 next season and $4,177,208 the following year…

  11. Clippers agree to one-year deal with Ryan Hollins

    Jul 7, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have had a very successful offseason. They’ve signed Chris Paul to a max contract, re-signed Matt Barnes, traded for Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick to get help on the wing and some solid perimeter shooting, and replaced Eric Bledsoe with Darren Collison as a backup to Paul at a very reasonable price. They can’t…

  12. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

  13. Kings’ brass visit Alabama with DeMarcus Cousins’ big payday looming

  14. Three team trade sends Redick to Clippers, Bledsoe to Suns, picks to Bucks

    Jul 2, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    The Clippers needed a few things to become serious title contenders in the West. One was a more consistent defense, Doc Rivers has to help handle that (and mature DeAndre Jordan’s game). They also needed a two guard and wings who could stretch the floor — you can check that off the list. This is…

  15. Chris Paul confirms he’s “all in” with Clippers

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:27 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    I'M IN!!! #CLIPPERNATION — Chris Paul (@CP3) July 1, 2013 He’s made it official.

This will be a five-year, $107 million…

    Jul 1, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

The 13 highest-paid members of that group, even…

  17. Report: Chris Paul will accept Clippers five-year, $107 million offer

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:37 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    There isn’t a lot of negotiating to do here: Chris Paul is a clear max contract player, the Clippers wanted to keep him and he wanted to stay with the Clippers. So while nothing is formal an official yet, we have confirmation of what we already knew — Chris Paul and the Clippers will aggree…

  18. Report: Raptors also talking to Clippers about Eric Bledsoe

    Jun 29, 2013, 6:32 PM EDT

    DeMar DeRozan

    Once Chris Paul formally signs on the dotted line, it will not be long before Eric Bledsoe is moved. While Doc Rivers may wonder what a CP3/Bledsoe backcourt looks like, there are other holes on this roster and Bledsoe is a key trade piece to fill one. We know the Clippers are talking to the…

  19. Doc Rivers said he didn’t plan to leave Boston; doesn’t shy away from Clipper title talk

    Jun 26, 2013, 3:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics head coach Glenn "Doc" Rivers gestures to his team during their NBA Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series against the New York Knicks in Boston

    Doc Rivers said he wanted to stay focused on the Clippers in his introductory press conference (which was shown live on NBA TV), but you knew there were going to be a lot of Boston questions. Rivers admitted he didn’t plan to leave Boston — he said he went so far to say he wanted…

  20. Doc Rivers may run basketball operations for Clippers in addition to becoming team’s head coach

    Jun 24, 2013, 6:46 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    Monday was supposed to be the day that the NBA approved the deal between the Celtics and Clippers that would allow Doc Rivers to coach in Los Angeles next season. It hasn’t happened yet, but it isn’t because of a holdup on the league’s part. The deal has yet to be finalized and sent for…

  21. Lakers unlikely to sign and trade Dwight Howard to the Clippers, Rockets, or anyone else

    Jun 16, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    When the reports started flying of a possible deal that would net the Clippers Kevin Garnett and head coach Doc Rivers from the Celtics, Dwight Howard‘s name got thrown in the mix at some point as someone that L.A.’s historically junior team would then like to pursue. Talks have stalled between the Celtics and Clippers…

  22. Report: Clippers, Celtics talks to send Garnett, Rivers to L.A. stalled

    Jun 15, 2013, 8:18 PM EDT

    Celtics forward Garnett and head coach Rivers react to a foul called on Garnett in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta.

    UPDATE 8:18 pm: The talks have apparently stalled out. Which shouldn’t be shocking. But things are stalled out, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports as well as others. The Celtics want DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe and two first round picks for Kevin Garnett and the right to talk to and sign Doc Rivers. The Clippers reportedly…

  23. Report: Doc Rivers, Clippers have mutual interest

    Jun 13, 2013, 5:55 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Ronny Turiaf

    Two years ago, Doc Rivers signed a five-year, $35 million contract extension with the Celtics. Even for a coach like Rivers, $7 million is on the high end, but so is a five-year contract. The Celtics, in effect, were paying extra for the stability of keeping a good coach around for so long – even…

  24. Report: Nuggets coaching search focused on Shaw, Hollins

    Jun 13, 2013, 3:50 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    George Karl went from NBA Coach of the Year to unemployed in 29 days. So, who wants to fill those shoes? It appears the search is down to former Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins and Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw, reports Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports. The Denver Nuggets have focused their search for a head…

    Image (1) twitter-fail-whale-thumb-250x187-20431.png for post 4192

      Jimmy Kimmel Live does a clever little skit now and again — famous celebrities read mean tweets about themselves. Actual tweets sent their way, because on twitter (and the Web in general) people use anonymity to be complete jerks. This week he did an NBA version with Shaq, Kobe Bryant, Andre Iguodala, Blake Griffin,…
