Chris Paul

  1. Caron Butler says nobody from Clippers called to tell him he was traded

    Aug 22, 2013, 6:36 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    It’s a common courtesy in the NBA — guys who are about to be traded hear about it from their agents and others around the league, but when the hammer drops the GM or coach or someone from the team calls with the formal notification. “Thank you for your service ” and all that jazz…

  2. Chris Paul elected as players’ union president

    Aug 21, 2013, 8:27 PM EDT

    chris paul players union president

    The days of veteran players with nothing more than fringe roles on NBA rosters heading up the players’ union are over for now, because for the first time in over a decade, a legitimate All-Star with plenty of name recognition has been elected as president. From Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today: Los Angeles Clippers point…

  3. Chris Paul can pretty much destroy high school, college defenders (VIDEO)

    Aug 19, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Elite NBA defenders struggle to contain Chris Paul. His step back jumper is wicked, he’s physically strong with the ball, he has a very good first step and he has the ability to survey the court then make the right play at lightning speed. So if the NBA’s best can’t slow him, what are high…

  4. Deron Williams hosting Nets players-only workouts

    Aug 19, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets guard Williams reacts after Chicago Bulls were fouled late in fourth quarter of Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    The Brooklyn Nets have a lot of bonding to do — and fast. They have a veteran team that can win big if a lot of things go right for them — one of those keys is they need to bond as a unit. This isn’t the Rockets, which can take a year to have…

  5. J.J. Redick is getting ready for Lob City (VIDEO)

    Aug 15, 2013, 6:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    J.J. Redick came to the Clippers as part of a three-team trade that sent Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler to the Suns, and Jared Dudley to Los Angeles. The Clippers were thought to have added Redick for his three-point shooting ability — L.A. was middle of the pack in that category in terms of percentage…

  6. Lakers biggest challenge: Adapting tradition to changing times

    Aug 15, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    The legend, the tradition of the Lakers is not in question. In the past 14 years the Lakers have seven trips to the finals and five titles, and since the Buss family took over it is up to 10 titles. In the past 30 years they have simply been the best run, most successful franchise…

  7. Blake Griffin agrees with CP3: He needs to step up this year

    Aug 15, 2013, 10:44 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Chris Paul was pretty blunt about it — he thinks the Clippers can go as far as Blake Griffin takes them. That’s a lot of weight on Griffin’s shoulders, but he told Ramona Shelburne of ESPNLosAngeles.com that Paul was right. “[Paul] has a huge role on this team,” Griffin said Thursday in an interview with…

  8. Not that he was expected to, but Kobe not playing in World Championships

    Aug 13, 2013, 1:43 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Kevin Durant and Kevin Love are in, but a number of Team USA’s biggest stars — LeBron James, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony — were expected to sit out the 2014 FIBA World Championships in Spain. It was kind of expected that Kobe Bryant was done with his Team USA time after London last summer (he’s…

  9. Stackhouse says LeBron “misinformed” about state of union

    Aug 13, 2013, 11:05 AM EDT

    Jerry Stackhouse, Draymond Green

    LeBron James is not going to be the next president of the NBA players union. While I think his intent to have a bigger voice in union matters is serious, the fact is the man has a lot of commitments as the biggest player in the NBA — on the court trying to lead the…

  10. Who are Rookie of the Year favorites? Burke, Oladipo to start

    Aug 9, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT

    Trey Burke

    There’s a formula for who often wins the Rookie of the year. They have to be a good player, certainly. More than that, he needs to be a player with the ball in his hands and on a team where he is going to be asked to take on a lot of responsibility. Damian Lillard…

  11. Ten NBA must-watch games this season

    Aug 6, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The NBA schedule is out and it’s a little like Christmas Day (unless you’re a beat reporter, then it’s explain to your wife how much you’ll be gone day, which is a lot less fun). Today is the day you can really start to taste the matchups that are coming. There are more good storylines…

  12. In new ad, Blake Griffin is “The Endorser” (VIDEO)

    Aug 6, 2013, 12:49 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Blake Griffin is kind of everywhere with sponsorship deals — I kind of expected it would be him calling to interrupt LeBron James workout/Powerbeats commercial/Imagine Dragons jam session to pitch going to Subway for lunch. So nice job by Jordan Brand and Foot Locker to make a little play on Griffin the endorser, with a…

  13. Chris Paul says Clippers will go as far as Griffin takes them

    Aug 6, 2013, 12:11 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    The Los Angeles Clippers got better this summer — they needed shooting and got it with the additions of J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley. Those two will space the floor when Chris Paul drives the lane, they will give defenders something to think about as Blake Griffin makes a cut to the rim. Plus, both…

  14. Eric Gordon says he feels “pretty good,” hopes to be 100 percent for camp

    Aug 4, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Jrue Holiday with Eric Gordon could be one of the more interesting backcourts in the NBA. Throw in an improved Anthony Davis, Tyreke Evans at the three, Ryan Anderson to space the floor and suddenly that is a potentially dangerous team in the Big Easy. The question is how much Gordon can do? He wasn’t…

  15. Mark Cuban releases video Mavericks used in pitch to Dwight Howard

    Aug 4, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    A+E Networks Hosts the NCTA Reception - Arrivals

    The Mavericks were one of five teams Dwight Howard considered in free agency, although their plan to first pair the center with an aging Dirk Nowitzki and then try to lure other stars to join the team a year later ended up not being the most appealing option. Teams go to great lengths to show…

  16. John Wall says he’s the best point guard in NBA (VIDEO)

    Aug 2, 2013, 2:42 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is not the best point guard in the NBA. I think it’s Chris Paul. If you want to debate it’s Tony Parker or Derrick Rose or Kyrie Irving (he will be in a couple of years), those are legitimate arguments to make. Wall hasn’t put himself in that conversation yet, despite his new…

  17. Dez Bryant says LeBron would be “beast” in NFL

    Aug 2, 2013, 2:09 PM EDT

    LeBron James Football

    As NFL training camps open, it’s time for that annual barstool debate: Could LeBron James play in the NFL? There are plenty of doubters who love to question LeBron’s toughness (just go check out the flopping comments on this post as they roll in). However, in the “yes he can” column I bring you outspoken…

  18. How about Clippers vs. Warriors on Christmas, too?

    Aug 1, 2013, 6:19 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Chris Paul

    Officially, the NBA schedule comes out next Tuesday, complete with a special on NBATV and everything (6 p.m. ET). But until then, things keep leaking out. Like this one from Clippers beat guy Dan Woike of the Orange County Register. Sources: Clippers will play Christmas game at Golden State. Final schedule will be released on…

  19. ‘Melo, CP3, Griffin throw out simultaneous first pitch at Chinese baseball game (VIDEO)

    Aug 1, 2013, 3:05 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony Blake Griffin Chris Paul

    Well, that’s something you don’t see every day. Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul were all on a Nike Jordan Brand tour through Asia recently, selling some shoes and spreading the gospel of basketball… but mostly selling shoes. And as part of that they went to a baseball game and threw out a simultaneous first…

  20. Rumor: Chris Paul threatened to sign with Rockets if Clips didn’t hire Rivers

    Jul 31, 2013, 2:49 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    If you remember the Doc Rivers talks with the Clippers, they went on for a bit, stalled out, then started up again out of the blue and a deal got done. Some deals are like that, both sides need to walk away for a bit and take a deep breath, think about it then come…

  21. Billups happy to be in Detroit and playing the point again

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:36 PM EDT

    billups pistons

    The Clippers have the best point guard, the best floor general in the game in Chris Paul. For the past couple seasons they had the up-and-coming Eric Bledsoe behind him. Which meant Chauncey Billups was at the two spot. He was the good teammate and did it, but it was not his preference. Throw in…

  22. Carmelo Anthony dodges talk of his plans next summer

    Jul 31, 2013, 10:26 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Five

    Carmelo Anthony can opt out of his contract next summer and he’s expected to do just that to lock down the security of a new longer deal — and he doesn’t really want to talk about it. He’ll talk about how he likes the offseason moves his Knicks made — picking up Andrea Bargnani and…

  23. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  24. Pistons might keep Chauncey Billups around after this season… in the front office

    Jul 28, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Joe Dumars

    When the Detroit Pistons brought back Chauncey Billups on a two-year contract — $2.5 million a year with a team option on the second year — there were questions about the move in some corners. But in the short term for a growing team, I like it. Billups doesn’t bring a whole lot on the…

  25. Report: Chris Paul leaning toward playing in the 2016 Olympics

    Jul 27, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    The reason that USA Basketball held a four-day mini-camp in Las Vegas last week that featured 28 current and rising NBA stars (and a couple from the college ranks) is due to the fact that there’s plenty of uncertainty as to who will return to the team to compete in the 2016 Olympic Games. Program…
