Blake Griffin

  1. Why didn’t Dwight Howard and Chris Paul end up playing together?

    Nov 1, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    Today’s NBA is nothing like the eras of the league that have long since passed. Picture Michael Jordan recruiting Isiah Thomas to join the Bulls, or Larry Bird trying to coerce Magic Johnson into leaving L.A. for the bright lights cold weather and rickety conditions of the ancient Boston Garden. Exactly — it just wasn’t…

  2. A guide for which teams to watch

    Oct 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Our ideas of fun may be completely different. Personally, I like to pretend I’m playing Supermarket Sweep in the grocery store, but you may like going out on “dates” or “talking to actual people.” With that said, I can’t in good faith tell you which teams will be fun this year. That’s a decision for…

  3. Four teams that could head off a Lakers vs. Heat NBA final

    Oct 29, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    It’s the consensus of prognosticators (and me as well) — the NBA finals will be the Miami Heat vs. Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James. You can already sense David Stern drooling like a Pavlovian dog thinking about the television ratings. What teams could destroy David Stern’s dream? There are four. While we…

  4. Video: Blake Griffin helps his younger self in clever Kia ads

    Oct 29, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin has just found his groove in front of the camera. He’s got a great, dry  sense of humor that works really well with the right material. These ads from Kia are the right material. Pretty funny stuff. Personally, I’d be afraid of what 10-year-old me would say back to current me if I…

  5. Video: Griffin, Clippers dance Gangnam style on the bench

    Oct 29, 2012, 11:36 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Blake Griffin

    If DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin are doing the dance on the bench, has said dance jumped the shark? Can we move on now? Well their ain’t no dance party like a Caron Butler dance party, and it was going onto Psy’s “Gangnam Style”  during the Clippers final preseason game. What I enjoy most is…

  6. Count LeBron among those impressed with Anthony Davis

    Oct 28, 2012, 7:01 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    We all knew Anthony Davis was potentially a very special player — some scouts graded him out as the best player in years, better than Blake Griffin or a host of other recent No. 1 overall picks. But he was supposed to be a bit of a project on offense, a guy with potential that…

  7. Lamar Odom says he doesn’t think he’ll be ready for opener

    Oct 27, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom was expected to be a steal for the Clippers — they needed frontcourt depth behind Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan and if the former Sixth Man of the Year could return to form them could provide that and more. Well, he can when he’s on the court. Which may well not be season…

  8. Video: Another day, another CP3 to Blake Griffin ally-oop

    Oct 26, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul puts his arm around teammate Griffin during NBA basketball game against the Memphis Grizzlies in Los Angeles

    They make it look routine. There are challengers to the “most entertaining team in the NBA” crown that for my money the Clippers still have. OKC is always good, Denver is going to be one of those teams this year but the Clippers are just fun. They have Chris Paul throwing lobs to Blake Griffin.…

  9. Video: Bledsoe no-look to DeAndre Jordan ally-oop slam

    Oct 25, 2012, 2:12 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    You can take Chris Paul and Blake Griffin out of the picture, and the Clippers still have the best highlights in the land. This was Eric Bledsoe with the no-look ally-oop pass to DeAndre Jordan (who has had some impressive nights this preseason). And there you have the dunk of the night. Other teams will…

  10. Five players that need a change of scenery

    Oct 23, 2012, 9:41 PM EDT

    Kevin Martin

    Breakups are never fun, but sometimes it just has to be done. Maybe there’s someone new, or things have become stale, or both parties just need to go a different direction. The following is a list of five talented players who could really use the “it’s not you, it’s me” speech from their current teams.…

  11. The case for why Chris Paul is staying with the Clippers

    Oct 21, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is technically back in that same spot so many stars have been in over the past few years which has resulted in a transition of teams. He’s a free agent at the end of this season with his contract expiring. He would have been a free agent this summer but as part of…

  12. Del Negro says Odom will work way into shape “eventually”

    Oct 18, 2012, 2:18 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom, Caron Butler

    The Clippers needed depth along the front line and signing Lamar Odom, just a couple years removed from being the Sixth Man of the Year, seemed like a good fit. That is, if his head was in the right place and he wasn’t lost like he spent the last year with the Mavericks. Apparently his…

  13. Video: Another day, another CP3 to Griffin ally-oop dunk

    Oct 18, 2012, 10:53 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul celebrates with Griffin after Griffin scored against the Memphis Grizzlies during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    What does it say about us as fans that this kind of play between two of the league’s superstars is so routine as to make us think “that was nice, but they’ve done much better?” Anyway, here is Chris Paul‘s ally-opp to Blake Griffin in transition from Wednesday night against the Jazz. Monster jam. Yawn.…

  14. Apparently Jarrett Jack gets the first warning about flopping

    Oct 17, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets

    Is there flopping in the preseason? Apparently. At least someone in the league office in New York thinks so. Golden State point guard Jarrett Jack tweeted this on Wednesday: So I’ve been warned for flopping hahaha smdh — JARRETT JACK (@Jarrettjack03) October 16, 2012 If you want to bask in some irony for a moment,…

  15. Odds on NBA MVP (yes, LeBron leads), Rookie of Year

    Oct 17, 2012, 2:23 PM EDT

    James of the U.S. hugs teammate Durant after their game against Lithuania at their men's preliminary round Group A basketball match at the Basketball Arena during the London 2012 Olympic Games

    If you don’t have LeBron James, Kevin Durant on top of your “most likely to win the MVP” list you’re doing it wrong. Professional odds makers don’t do it wrong. So when the guys at offshore book Bovada put together a list, you know who is at the top. But the real value is farther…

  16. NBA season preview: L.A. Clippers

    Oct 16, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Last Season: Perhaps it was the start of a cultural change in Clipperland, or maybe it was simply the beginning of a very short-term spike of relative success. Either way, your 2011-12 Clippers were competitive, fun to watch, and a team that made its way into the playoffs — three qualities that have been completely…

  17. Video: 90 Chris Pauls cut a swath through Los Angeles

    Oct 5, 2012, 2:07 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Chris Paul

    The headline is a little misleading, Chris Paul doesn’t cut a swath through L.A. in this video, just Venice Beach. Which is it’s own, interesting, subset of Los Angeles. It’s one of the most visited, most iconic parts of L.A., but it’s not L.A. No one place is. That’s the great thing about the city.…

  18. Gooden says guys who draw charges will pay flopping fines

    Oct 5, 2012, 1:12 AM EDT

    Paul George, Drew Gooden

    Mark Cuban doesn’t love it. Neither does Blake Griffin. And Dirk Nowitzki. While a lot of players have said they like the NBA’s new policy of fines for flops and hope that it starts to curtail the embellishment of contact in the NBA, not everyone does. There are concerns about enforcement, about unintended consequences, about…

  19. Thursday And-1 link: News, notes from around NBA camps

    Oct 4, 2012, 9:36 PM EDT

    Lakers new guard Steve Nash of Canada smiles as he walks past Kobe Bryant during NBA media day for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in Los Angeles

    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. • It was news when Kobe Bryant said this was the most talented Lakers…

  20. Dirk Nowitzki calls flopping fines “a bunch of crap”

    Oct 4, 2012, 5:18 PM EDT

    350x-4

    The new fines for flopping announced by the league are not very popular in Dallas. First Mavericks owner Mark Cuban questioned the impact of the fines and what the fallout would be, and now Dirk Nowitzki has come out and questioned how the league will enforce the rules. From the Dallas Morning News (hat tip…

  21. Blake Griffin says flopping fines just NBA going after cash

    Oct 4, 2012, 12:25 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    For the most part, NBA players have been backed the NBA’s new penalties for floppers — plays will be reviewed by the league office and guys will be warned for the first instance and fined after that up to $30,000 for the fifth incident. Players seem to think maybe this will cut down on flopping…

  22. Video: Blake Griffin with 75 foot shot… and some dunks

    Oct 4, 2012, 10:11 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    If Blake Griffin knows how to do one thing, it’s put on a show. Teams right now are doing their public scrimmages (something they are required to do, a remnant of the lockout before last as a gift to the fans) and usually these are not much. But Griffin is a walking show and so…

  23. Iverson playing exhibition in China against Marbury’s team

    Oct 3, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    iverson-turkey

    Heck, I’d pay to see this. Maybe more than the Heat/Clippers exhibition games that tip off in China in just more than a week. Allen Iverson and Jason Williams are going to play in an exhibition game in Beijing against Stephon Marbury and his team, the Beijing Ducks. Other guys playing on the NBA alumni…

  24. Odom wants to apologize to Mavs fans, Cuban for last season

    Oct 2, 2012, 6:45 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom’s fall from Sixth Man of the Year and NBA title holder to guy the Dallas Mavericks told to just go away and don’t come near the rest of the players was fast and public. Odom invited it all in when he married a Kardashian and became a reality television star, but when he…

  25. No pressure Vinny Del Negro, but it’s the last year of your contract

    Sep 27, 2012, 9:55 AM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    All season long the talk around the Los Angeles Clippers will be about contracts — Chris Paul will be a free agent next summer. It’s the smart move financially for him to become a free agent and re-sign with the Clippers, but that free agency gives him leverage. Enough leverage that pretty much every player…
