Chris Paul

  1. Clippers respond publicly to appease the ‘angry’ Chris Paul

    Jun 1, 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 anonymously sourced reports surfaced that Chris Paul wasn’t the least bit happy with being tagged as the one responsible for the Clippers parting ways with Vinny Del Negro, the logical move would be for the team to reach out to Paul directly — and privately — to let him know that wasn’t the case.…

  2. Clippers, Hawks reportedly interested in David West if he decides to leave the Pacers

    May 31, 2013, 10:27 PM EDT

    David West

    David West was an All-Star power forward twice while playing alongside Chris Paul in New Orleans, but has flown under the radar since then in his time with the Indiana Pacers over the last two seasons. This year, West has approached that level again with averages of 17.1 points and 7.7 rebounds on a team…

  3. Report: Chris Paul angry with Clippers because he’s blamed for Del Negro firing

    May 31, 2013, 9:07 AM EDT

    Chris Paul ,  Vinny Del Negro

    Vinny Del Negro tried to avoid the question, but it was pretty clear he thought Chris Paul got him fired. Clippers owner Donald Sterling all but came out and said the reason Del Negro is gone is Paul. Paul says that is not the case at all — and he is pretty angry that he…

  4. Clippers speak with Bryon Scott about coaching vacancy

    May 30, 2013, 5:13 PM EDT

    Byron Scott, Haywoode Workman

    It seemed Byron Scott was on a coaching slide – falling from the Nets (a conference-winning team) to the Hornets (a playoff-series-winning team) to the Cavaliers (a non-winning team). But maybe he’s just on a coaching roller coaster, which would mean Scott is on the rise after bottoming out. Chris Broussard of ESPN: Clippers general…

  5. Vinny Del Negro hints at the truth, but successfully avoids questions about Chris Paul’s role in his dismissal

    May 30, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    Chris Paul ,  Vinny Del Negro

    Vinny Del Negro appeared on the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday, and spent a segment almost 10 minutes long discussing how his tenure ended with the Los Angeles Clippers. The assumption that Chris Paul had as much to do with Del Negro not being brought back as anything (remember, technically he wasn’t fired; his contract only…

  6. Report: Mike Malone to interview for Clippers’ coaching job

    May 30, 2013, 3:16 AM EDT

    Mike Malone Warriors

    The first reports were the Clippers were looking for a big name, veteran coach to put in the big chair — Nate McMillan, Lionel Hollins, Stan Van Gundy (a longer shot), maybe Alvin Gentry. But the top assistants are getting a look, too. Brian Shaw of the Pacers was mentioned, and if you’re looking for…

  7. 22 teams confirmed for NBA Summer League in Las Vegas

    May 29, 2013, 9:40 PM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Brian Roberts

    Summer League is a chance to check out both young players and those on the fringe who are trying to make a name for themselves and earn a job on an NBA roster. Besides, it’s not like you’re doing anything else related to professional basketball from July 12th through the 22nd. Even though we still…

  8. Report: Magic interested in Eric Bledsoe. That’s a long line.

    May 29, 2013, 5:40 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe, Jerryd Bayless

    Somewhere around the second week of July, when Chris Paul signs his new max deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, you are going to hear a lot of Eric Bledsoe trade buzz. There is a lot of interest around the league in the Clippers’ backup point guard — with good reason — but they are…

  9. Cuban says plan is for Dallas to be contender in two years

    May 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Mark Cuban,  Brian Forte

    How close are the Dallas Mavericks to contending? Owner Mark Cuban says he plans to have his team back at the top of the league in two years. Yes, two years. That’s the timeline he gave ESPNDallas.com. “We want to be a championship team. We’ve never said we have to be a championship team this…

  10. Clippers reportedly targeting ‘big names first’ in head coaching search

    May 26, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Image (1) Jvangundy-thumb-250x181-12768.jpg for post 2289

    There’s a good reason that the Clippers coaching search is delivering an almost daily stream of updates. If Chris Paul re-signs in free agency as expected, it’s by far the team closest to championship contention of any that are currently in need of a new head coach. Former Suns coach Alvin Gentry is the latest…

  11. Mike Conley on verge of stardom as Grizzlies on verge of elimination

    May 26, 2013, 1:39 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Three

    Where is the line between the NBA’s stars and the league’s merely good players? Star is such a loaded term – full of reputation and production and marketing and talent and style – that, occasionally, it can be useful to sort through all the distractions and look at objective measures. Let’s examine players in order…

  12. Report: New Kings owner eyes Mike Malone as coach

    May 25, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Mike Malone Warriors

    Golden State’s Mike Malone has been in the group with Brian Shaw and Mike Budenholzer the past few years — top assistant coaches that get interviews but have yet to land in the big chair. That could be about to change for Malone — it’s a good thing when the owner wants you. And the…

  13. Report: Clippers to consider Alvin Gentry for head coaching job

    May 24, 2013, 2:42 PM EDT

    Alvin Gentry

    The Clippers’ head coaching job is undoubtedly the most intriguing out of all of the ones that are currently open for next season. Assuming Chris Paul re-signs with the team in free agency, L.A. will return the core of a team that was talented enough to win 56 regular season games and two in the…

  14. Report: Clippers interested in Nate McMillan as coach

    May 24, 2013, 8:50 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    It’s a little tough to predict where the Clippers’ coaching search might lead because hiring a coach is a task owner Donald Sterling takes on personally. He has for a long time. He was the guy charmed by Vinny Del Negro and hired him when the basketball operations people wanted to go another direction (and…

  15. LeBron, Durant, Kobe headline All NBA First Team

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak. But Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan continue to defy father time. The two veterans round out the All NBA Team…

  16. Report: Mavericks looking to move No. 13 pick to clear out cap space for run at Howard, CP3

    May 22, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    It’s no secret that the Dallas Mavericks want to get a big star to pair with — and eventually take over the franchise mantle from — Dirk Nowitzki. And there are only two franchise-caliber players on the market this season, Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. But to offer a max contract Dallas has to make…

  17. Clippers’ owner basically admits Del Negro let go to keep Chris Paul happy

    May 22, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Denver Nuggets

    We said as much in our story telling you Vinny Del Negro was not coming back to the Clippers — this was what Chris Paul wanted. Clippers owner Donald Sterling personally liked Del Negro a lot and was his biggest supporter in the organization, so something had to override that. It was free agent to…

  18. Eastern Conference Finals preview: Pacers vs. Heat

  19. Clippers let go of Vinny Del Negro as coach

    May 21, 2013, 3:07 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    Clippers owner Donald Sterling created a little stir when he was near the court watching Game 1 between the Spurs and Grizzlies Sunday — he didn’t bother to attend all of his own team’s playoff games, why was he suddenly at this one? Was he scouting potential coaches such as the Grizzlies Lionel Hollins or…

  20. Report: Clippers (read: Chris Paul) have eyes on free agent David West

    May 21, 2013, 11:43 AM EDT

    David West

    Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and… David West? What could go wrong? David West has been a rock-solid veteran big man for the Pacers this season and has talked repeatedly about how much he loved playing there this year. But the NBA is a business and West is an unrestricted free agent this summer. Teams are…

  21. Why there’s a 100 percent chance the NBA lottery is fixed

    May 21, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT

    Nerlens Noel, Lakeem Jackson

    The NBA lottery is fixed. There’s no question about it. Just as last year’s draft order was determined by a David Stern-led conspiracy, this year’s will be determined the same way. Think about it. If the NBA lottery really were legitimate, why not conduct the draw publically rather than in a back room? If the…

  22. Report: Dwight Howard not going to Clippers… did we need a report for that?

    May 20, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    It’s Dwight Howard silly rumor season. Everyone knows the Lakers are still the front-runners in this race but the latest reports have the Rockets and Mavericks at least in a good stalking position to make a move once this race moves into the home stretch. Other teams may try to get into the mix as…

  23. Spurs show they have too much offense for Grizzlies to handle in Game 1 destruction

    May 19, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs guard Green shoots against Memphis Grizzlies guard Conley during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Western Conference final playoff basketball game in San Antonio

    In getting to the Western Conference Finals, the Grizzlies played two teams that couldn’t put together solid execution on the offensive end of the floor anywhere near consistently over the course of those playoff series. A lot of the credit for that goes to the Memphis defense, of course. But in the first round, the…

  24. Spurs would like to remind you they are very good, crush Grizzlies in Game 1

    May 19, 2013, 6:35 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    The San Antonio Spurs are never the “it” team. Never the sexy squad with high-flying stars casual fans gravitate toward in the postseason. The collective national will was behind Stephen Curry and Golden State last round. Then a whole lot of prognosticators — very smart, good ones — picked Memphis this round. The Grizzlies were…

  25. LeBron James, Chris Paul teach and motivate future NBA stars at a 2008 camp (VIDEO)

    May 19, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    US gold medalists LeBron James (R) and C

    This video was recently released by the folks that run the website for LeBron James, and it gives us a glimpse into the types of motivational words and teachings that young NBA prospects received from James and Chris Paul five years ago. The highlights come from a 2008 summer camp that took place before the…
