  1. 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…

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

    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…

  3. 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…

  4. NBA Power Rankings: Heat, Thunder on top, it feels like 2011

    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…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching a guy do a backflip on a surfboard…. Thunder 120, Rockets 98: Welcome back to Oklahoma City James Harden. After a warm reception from the crowd Harden was 3-of-16 shooting and struggled to defend Kevin Durant (who doesn’t?). And…

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

    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…

  8. 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…

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

    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…

  10. 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…

  11. GM Survey: Where Darko Milicic is underrated and Carmelo Anthony is MVP

    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…

  12. 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…

  13. Chauncey Billups targets November return to Clippers

    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…

    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…

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

    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…

  17. Matt Barnes talks being a Clipper, finding minutes

    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…

    Matt Barnes is a member of the Los Angeles Clippers. We told you about that yesterday. We’ve also told you that Chris Paul was playing GM and doing the recruiting — the Clippers want to keep Paul happy heading into his free agency and the buzz around the league is he and CAA have been…

  19. It’s official: Matt Barnes signs with Los Angeles Clippers

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    We told you this was coming and now it is official — Matt Barnes has signed to play with the Los Angeles Clippers this season, the team announced Friday. Getting an athletic player who can defend on the wing for the league minimum is a good signing for the Clippers. While the official terms of…

  20. How Chauncey Billups helped recruit O.J. Mayo to Dallas

    Sep 14, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    O.J. Mayo

    O.J. Mayo had some options this summer, none of the long-term deals he was hoping for but there were a few teams calling his agent. One of them was the Dallas Mavericks, where he eventually signed. But one of the key reasons was that Chauncey Billups is a fan of Mavs coach Rick Carlisle. A…

    We told you yesterday that Matt Barnes looked done with the Lakers but was close to a deal to stay in Los Angeles with the Clippers. Now comes this tweet from Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated: Source says Matt Barnes has informed the Clippers he will sign with them. Nothing is ever final until ink…

  22. Report: Matt Barnes nearing deal with Los Angeles Clippers

    Sep 12, 2012, 6:59 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    Well, at least Matt Barnes may not have to go shopping for a new house. Barnes spent the past couple seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers but he wasn’t likely to stick around with the team next season — his minutes dried up in the playoffs as his three-point shooting went cold, then he was…

  23. Chauncey Billups says he’s “way ahead of schedule”

    Sep 7, 2012, 9:57 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    When Chauncey Billups tore his Achilles’ last February at age 35, it felt like it might be the end of a fantastic career. But if one guy had the discipline and drive to return, it was Billups. If he was going to fight his way back, the low-end estimates for recovery from that injury of…

    After a summer of rebuilding and trying to put a team together, there are a few teams out there that are clearly looking at next summer as the chance to remake their lineup. Yes, we’re looking at you, Dallas. But you are not alone. So, who are next summer’s big potential free agents? Here is…

    Aug 29, 2012, 1:52 PM EDT

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    Parity has become something of a naughty word around intelligent conversation about the NBA. Because parity is another word for “competitive balance” and that was the word the owners and league used to justify killing off 20 percent of the season last year. (When in truth the hard cap wouldn’t help a damn bit with…
