Chauncey Billups

  1. Grant Hill hopes to be playing for Clippers later this month

    Jan 2, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    A lot of NBA coaches wish they had Vinny Del Negro’s problem — too many talented players to give minutes to. Because the Clippers are winning there is little grumbling, but it’s a challenge Del Negro and others have admitted to. Soon there will be another wing player demanding minutes on the active roster. Grant…

  2. NBA issues flopping warnings to Royal Ivey, Gustavo Ayon and Tony Parker

    Dec 30, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Tony Parker, flop

    Tony Parker? Flop? Well, I never! The NBA has officially warned Parker, Royal Ivey and Gustavo Ayon today for violating the anti-flopping policy established this season. While this is solely a warning for all three players, if they’re accused of violating the policy again, they will be subject to a $5,000 dollar fine. Parker’s flop…

  4. Terrell Owens asked for a 10-day contract with Clippers

    Dec 12, 2012, 2:59 PM EDT

    Premiere Of  Summit Entertainment's "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" - Arrivals

    Terrell Owens can’t get an NFL contract right now (39-year-old receivers rarely do), so he’s looking at some other career options. Like the NBA. Maybe not officially, but he’s been around the Clippers and their workout facility. Blake Griffin was talking about him on the Dan Patrick Show (which you can see on the NBC Sports…

  5. George Karl has noticed the maturity in Carmelo Anthony’s game

    Dec 10, 2012, 10:50 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Carmelo Anthony used to frustrate George Karl, and it wasn’t just a fondness for 20-foot contested jumpers. Karl needed Anthony to be a true leader on both ends of the floor. He needed Anthony’s focus on offense to translate to defense. He needed Anthony to do the little things that leaders do to push their…

  6. Clippers will be without Chauncey Billups for two weeks

    Dec 6, 2012, 11:13 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    Well, at least they are used to playing without him. We told you that Clippers starting two guard Chauncey Billups sat out Wednesday night’s game with what was described as an ankle injury, but there was no timeline. Now we’ve got one — about two weeks reports the Orange County Register. And they are saying…

  7. Chauncey Billups out again with a new ankle injury

    Dec 5, 2012, 10:53 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Randy Foye

    Chauncey Billups has only been back with the Clippers for the team’s last three games, but he’s already sidelined once again due to injury. Billups went down with a torn Achilles tendon last season, and worked extremely hard to make it back. But he was forced to sit out of Wednesday night’s home contest against…

  8. Nets’ Gerald Wallace becomes second player fined for flopping

    Dec 5, 2012, 4:47 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James is defended by Brooklyn Nets' Gerald Wallace during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami,

    Got to say this for Gerald Wallace — he saves his flops for the biggest stars. Wallace became the second NBA player fined for flopping, getting to write a $5,000 check to the league for clearly trying to sell a call against LeBron James last Saturday. LeBron made contact with his right arm but then…

  9. Chauncey Billups latest to receive warning for flopping (VIDEO)

    Dec 5, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers guard Billups walks past fans after second half of NBA game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    Chauncey Billups became the latest offender of the league’s policy against flopping on Wednesday, receiving a warning for this kickout of his left leg late in the Clippers win over the Jazz on December 3. It’s a clear flop, but the problem is that it worked to perfection. L.A. was trailing by two, and Billups…

  10. Clippers 105, Jazz 104: Don’t make Chris Paul angry

    Dec 4, 2012, 2:13 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    The city of Los Angeles may not have Phil Jackson, but Chris Paul is doing his best to carry on some of the Zen Master’s most notable traits. Remember how Jackson would never call timeouts when his team was on the bad end of a big run? Timeouts were considered to be bailouts. Jackson wanted…

    Miami Heat's James celebrates win over Atlanta Hawks with Bosh and Allen during their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    It’s early in the season, very early, but there are moments it feels line the NBA finals come June could be a rematch of last year — Miami vs. Oklahoma City. And that really shouldn’t be a surprise. Right now those two teams are on top of the PBT power rankings. 1. Heat (12-3, last…

  13. Report: Billups to return to Clippers Wednesday, will start

    Nov 28, 2012, 3:21 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups Clippers

    Most players who have a major Achilles tendon injury at age 36 are done. It’s time to walk away from the game, spend more time with your family and your golf game. Not Chauncey Billups. Not Mr. Big Shot. The Clippers guard was going to leave the game on his own terms and worked hard…

  15. Clippers 92, Spurs 87: Making a list, checking it twice

    Nov 20, 2012, 1:52 AM EDT

    Matt Barnes, Manu Ginobili

    Doubting the legitimacy of the Los Angeles Clippers is not a new or particularly uncommon practice. Despite laying waste to the Grizzlies, Spurs, Lakers and Heat in convincing fashion already, there was a sense that this would be the first true test for the Clippers. They’d be out on the road, against the team that…

  16. Billups could rejoin Clippers by Thanksgiving. Grant Hill… not so much.

    Nov 6, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups Clippers

    Here is where things stand Clippers fans — Chauncey Billups, at age 36 and recovering from a major Achilles tendon injury, will be back with your team before Grant Hill. Billups could be back by the time you’re taking a nap after eating too much turkey and stuffing, with a side of sweet potatoes. That’s…

  17. League GMs say Durant now more clutch than Kobe

    Oct 22, 2012, 7:31 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    There are 15 seconds left in the game, your team is down by one, and you can have anybody in the NBA take that shot. Who do you want? For years now NBA general managers have said “Kobe” in their annual survey when asked what one player they would want taking a shot with the…

    Oct 22, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Everyone has that buddy that acts perfectly logical and sane, but forces you to reevaluate your friendship after he blurts out something like, “Carlos Boozer is going to win MVP this year!” Well, good news everyone: NBA General Managers are just like you, me, and your friend you can no longer take seriously. Let’s take…

  19. The Clippers brought in veterans for depth, who are now all banged up

    Oct 20, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom, Caron Butler

    The Clippers went for the sure thing this offseason. They want to compete now, so instead of developing young talent or going for upside, they brought in veterans to round out their roster. They wound up with a pretty deep team with a lot of experience. Who are currently all hurt in minor ways. From…

  20. Chauncey Billups targets November return to Clippers

    Oct 18, 2012, 11:41 AM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups timetable for return just keeps moving up. He suffered a torn surgery left Achilles’ tendon — a tough injury to recover from at any age — but had the surgery and promised a comeback. His original optimistic timetable was December, but he has recovered to the point he is practicing with the team…

  21. 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…

  23. Chauncey Billups says he’ll be back before the first of the year

    Sep 29, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    Say what you want about Chauncey Billups, but do not question the man’s dedication. The Clippers guard immediately got word out after his devastating Achilles injury that he would not be retiring. He’s kept that word up the entire way. He’s vowed to return this season. And at media day for the Clippers Friday, Billups…

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    For a guy who has spent the past few seasons being a solid role player on quality teams — Orlando first then the Los Angeles Lakers — it took a while this summer for Matt Barnes to catch on with a team. And Barnes understands why. “First and foremost, me being injured last year during…
