  1. Top 10 Gary Payton alley-oops to Shawn Kemp (VIDEO)

    Sep 6, 2013, 4:04 PM EDT

    1996 NBA Finals Game 6:  Seattle SuperSonics vs. Chicago Bulls

    Gary Payton to Shawn Kemp may have been the greatest alley-oop combination ever. There are combos who will make a run at them (Chris Paul and Blake Griffin) but Payton to Kemp is the gold standard. With Payton going into the Hall of Fame this weekend, NBA.com put together a video of the 10 best…

  2. Jamal Crawford says there’s ‘no question’ Eric Bledsoe will be a star

    Sep 5, 2013, 10:54 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe, Jerryd Bayless

    The Clippers loved what they got from Eric Bledsoe last season, an explosive 6’1″ guard who was dubbed “mini-LeBron” by none other than King James himself. Bledsoe is still on his rookie contract, however, and at some point soon he’s going to get an extension commensurate with what he brings to the table. L.A. has…

  3. Does Jamal Crawford have the game’s best handles? (VIDEO)

    Sep 3, 2013, 12:05 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    The ability to control the ball off the dribble in a variety of ways is a key component of being able to score from the guard position. This video mix of Jamal Crawford, compiled from his summer pro-am in Seattle, is proof that he’s among the best in the league at this very specific skill.…

  4. Antawn Jamison: “I would never count Kobe Bryant out of anything”

    Sep 2, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Kobe prepares to throw a basketball to fans while attending a youth basketball final match in Hong Kong

    Kobe Bryant has an obstacle in front of him, and that is when he is at his best. That is when he is most driven. Kobe at age 35 is working on a comeback from a ruptured Achilles that might have ended the career of lesser players. But Kobe was not going to let the…

  5. Wall, Sanders got their rookie extensions, what about the other rookies?

    Aug 30, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    John Wall will be with the Wizards for five more seasons, making $80 million. Larry Sanders will be with Milwaukee for four more years, $44 million. Those are the first two extensions to the rookie deals out of the 2010 draft. They were both expected and both got done early — teams have until Oct.…

  6. Suns’ Dragic says Eric Bledsoe is “mini-LeBron James”

    Aug 27, 2013, 6:21 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe, Jerryd Bayless

    I’m as big a fan of Eric Bledsoe as the next guy, but… The Suns acquired Bledsoe to be part of their rebuilding going forward, but this season they are planning to start him and Goran Dragic for stretches together. Phoenix wants to run so you can call this “going small” but you can bet…

  7. Kobe Bryant receives most votes from rookies asked to name their favorite player in the league

    Each year when the NBA’s freshly drafted rookies gather for the offseason photo-shoot during the summer, NBA.com surveys the group to get their thoughts on the league’s current players, as well as predictions for the future of this year’s incoming class. While several topics were covered, one of the more interesting questions posed to the…

  8. When you vote for West All-Star guards, who you going to snub?

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Three

    When you sit down to fill out your All-Star ballot this year (or you may not sit down, you can do it from your phone while standing) who are you going to select as the starting guards in the West? Are you going to take Chris Paul and Kobe Bryant, like last year? Smart money…

  9. Report: Chris Paul wants union to challenge league on flopping fines, HGH testing

    Aug 23, 2013, 12:13 PM EDT

    chris paul players union president

    There was a feeling among a number of players (fueled by their agents) that the former leadership of the NBA players union — executive director Billy Hunter and president Derek Fisher — were too soft with the NBA and too cozy with David Stern and NBA leadership. That stems out of the last lockout (which…

  10. Doc Rivers embraces high expectations for Clippers

    Aug 23, 2013, 10:44 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Matt Barnes, Darren Collison, Jared Dudley, Ryan Hollins, Chris Paul, ,J.J. Redick

    On paper, the Los Angeles Clippers should be contenders. In reality, they got eliminated from the playoffs in the first round — they got up 2-0 on Memphis then were swept out of the playoffs. The Clippers started that series with a good plan, the Grizzlies adjusted and Los Angeles had no counters. They went…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
