  1. PBT’s 2013-14 NBA season predictions… it’s not all Miami

    Oct 28, 2013, 4:08 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    The last couple years, it has felt going into the season that the road to an NBA title went through Miami. And it wasn’t going any farther. This year it feels far more wide open. Make no mistake, the road goes through Miami and they are saying all the right things about defending their title,…

    The regular season tips off in just a couple of days, so it’s worth taking a look back at some of the best plays the preseason had to offer. Takeaways from this video clip include Chris Paul taking his offensive game up a notch, Derrick Rose being all the way back, and the Heat looking…

    Oct 25, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    Last season: New Orleans final season as the Hornets wasn’t pretty. Eric Gordon was out much of the year, Anthony Davis showed promise but looked like a rookie at times, Austin Rivers looked like a mistake, they blew a 25-point lead to the Lakers, and they ended the season with 27 wins without even a…

  4. Utah’s Rudy Gobert thinks better of blocking Blake Griffin dunk (VIDEO)

    Oct 24, 2013, 1:04 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Scott Machado, Derrick Favors

    This dunk by Blake Griffin is pretty much standard Clippers fare — it’s an impressive throw down but Chris Paul sets guys up like that half a dozen times a game. It’s Utah rookie Rudy Gobert that makes this video work. Watch him rotate over and think about going for the block on Griffin, realizing that…

  5. Wednesday And-1 Links: Cavaliers pick up options for Irving, Waiters, Zeller, Thompson

    Kyrie Irving

    It’s time for 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 more than Skittles… • If you are rebuilding with youth, rule one is…

  6. Tracy McGrady watched the Lakers play, feels bad for Kobe

    Oct 23, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    Yao Ming & Kobe Bryant Attend NBA Fans Appreciation Day

    Lakers fans could have watched their team’s preseason win over Utah Tuesday night with a sense of optimism. Jordan Farmar looked good in the second half running the offense, Wes Johnson looked comfortable in the system on his way to 14 points, Xavier Henry was attacking, Jordan Hill looked solid in the paint. You could…

  7. J.J. Redick returns to Clippers practice, likely to play Friday

    Oct 23, 2013, 4:03 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    The Los Angeles Clippers have finally admitted there was more than just a bruised thigh that was keeping J.J. Redick sidelined the last three weeks — there was a little bit of a tear. But that is apparently a thing of the past. Redick is back on the Clippers practice court Tuesday and told Arash…

  8. Kevin Love brags about winning “the ‘White Guy’ award”

    Oct 22, 2013, 6:23 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The NBA’s annual GM survey, analyzed by Kurt earlier today, contained few surprises. Who will win the championship? The Heat, as usual. Who will win MVP? LeBron James, obviously. Who is the best center? Dwight Howard, of course. Who’s the best coach in the NBA? Gregg Popovich, surely. Which player makes the most of limited…

  9. NBA GMs would take Kevin Durant over Kobe Bryant for last shot

    Oct 22, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Clippers

    It’s a great barstool debate: Who do you want taking the final shot with the game on the line? General Managers around the NBA say Kevin Durant. For many years that question was one Kobe Bryant owned in the annual NBA.com GM survey, but for the second straight GMs picked the scoring machine out of…

  10. NBA.com GM survey predicts another big season for Heat, LeBron James

    Oct 22, 2013, 11:22 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    The annual NBA.com GM survey is pretty much a spot check on the conventional wisdom around the NBA. It’s not the place you see daring picks or gain deep insight. It’s generally a lot of guys picking the favorite. This year’s survey shows the conventional wisdom is “good luck beating LeBron James the Heat.” In…

  11. Chris Paul says he could retire “a little early” to spend time with family

    Oct 22, 2013, 10:02 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Andre Miller

    Being a good father on an NBA schedule is not easy — the time and travel demands in season keep fathers away from home a lot. Chris Paul has balanced that out by making pretty much every day “take your child to work day” — his son (as well as Matt Barnes son and others)…

  12. Nick Young calls Clippers covering up Lakers championship banners at Staples Center ‘disrespectful’

    Oct 20, 2013, 8:03 PM EDT

    Lakers.com

    We knew this was coming. After the Clippers redecorated Staples Center by putting up large images of their own players over the space on the wall where all of the Lakers’ championship banners and retired jerseys reside, comments from the Lakers were to be expected. But most, wisely, couldn’t care less about how the Clippers…

  13. Chris Paul drops 40 on Nuggets in preseason (VIDEO)

    Oct 20, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Maybe there is something special about those powder blue with sleeves uniforms of the Clippers. Or maybe Chris Paul just loves Las Vegas. Whatever the case, CP3 went off in a preseason game against Denver and dropped 40 points in Los Angeles’ 118-111 overtime win at Mandalay Bay. Doc Rivers decided to stretch the legs…

  14. Chris Paul throws in a half-court shot after practice (VIDEO)

    Oct 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul reacts during their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    When you see footage like this of one of the game’s best players picking up a ball and swishing a half-court shot without even thinking about it, it’s a nice reminder of just how ridiculously skilled these guys are at their chosen craft. Chris Paul became the latest to get caught on video showcasing his…

  15. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Phoenix Suns

    Oct 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe

    Last season: Believe it or not, the Suns actually had playoff aspirations when the regular season began. The front office believed that Michael Beasley would be different in Phoenix than he had been anywhere else, and mandated that he be given a chance to be a difference-maker in the lineup. Once it became clear that…

  16. 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…

  17. PBT Roundtable: Who is poised for a breakout season?

    Oct 16, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    John Henson

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable, just like the knights of King Arthur, drink mead and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question: Which player do you expect to have a breakout season? Kurt Helin: After spending an entire summer pumping up Toronto’s Jonas Valanciunas, I’ll go with……

  18. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Los Angeles Clippers

    Oct 16, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    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…

  19. Chris Paul explains latest move made in the Jordan CP3.VII (VIDEO)

    chris paul players union president

    Jordan Brand launched Chris Paul‘s latest signature shoe this week, the CP3.VII. In the video clip above, Paul tries explaining a “riquickulous” move he made in his new sneakers, but as you can see, it gets a little convoluted since it all happened so fast. There are a couple more spots that are similarly-themed, including…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. Rockets, Pacers get crazy welcome in Philippines

    Oct 7, 2013, 2:44 PM EDT

    Orlando Johnson

    Basketball and the NBA are huge in the Philippines — remember the games over there during the lockout? It was wild. But the NBA had never taken a game there — until Thursday, when the Rockets and Pacers will face off over there. The two teams will play in Manila then travel for a second…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. LeBron James tops NBA’s worldwide jersey sales list

    Oct 2, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    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…
