    Feb 25, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich, Manu Ginobili

    Tony Parker — having a career season where television pundits throw his name in the MVP conversation — didn’t want to sit out. He did Sunday anyway, missing the Spurs win over Phoenix, but only after his efforts to hide his triceps injury from coach Gregg Popovich fell short, reports Mike Monroe of he Express-News.…

  2. Report: If Kevin Garnett wanted to join the Clippers, Chris Paul would have made it happen

    Feb 22, 2013, 4:41 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    We know Kevin Garnett is intensely loyal, but Chris Paul and the Clippers certainly put that to the test at the deadline. Garnett’s situation was unique of other stars that didn’t get dealt at the deadline, mainly because of his no-trade clause. If he wanted to remain a Celtic, that was his prerogative. Despite what he…

  3. Clippers fan drains half-court shot, team’s lone highlight Thursday (VIDEO)

    Feb 22, 2013, 12:05 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    You can insert your own “good thing he didn’t have Chris Paul take this shot for him” joke here. I’m not going to go there, the headline was enough. But when a fan hits a halfcourt shot we’re going to show it to you. And this guy is rightfully pumped as he won a Dodge…

  4. Tony Parker, Spurs show Clippers what contender looks like

    Feb 22, 2013, 3:26 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul reacts as San Antonio Spurs Parker gets past him during first quarter of NBA game in Los Angeles

    Last playoffs, in the second round, the Spurs swept the Clippers out 4-0. It was a beat down, but the kind improving teams like the Clippers are supposed to learn and grow from. Thursday night it didn’t look like the Clippers learned a thing. San Antonio’s execution exposed Los Angeles’ defense, the Clippers could get…

  6. Three Stars of the Night: Harden’s Revenge Game

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:30 AM EDT

    James Harden

    On a night where trade talk dominated the news, James Harden served up a reminder that there’s an awful lot that must be considered when making a deal. Who knows how much it mattered to Oklahoma City at the time, but trading James Harden to a perennially competitive Western Conference foe badly in need of such…

  7. Report: Celtics say they won’t trade Rajon Rondo

    Feb 20, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    All reports regarding a team’s trade intentions at this time of year should be read very carefully until any deal is actually completed. But this one regarding what the Celtics are planning to do with Rajon Rondo as Thursday’s deadline approches seems as close as we can get to a true assurance. From Sam Amick…

  8. Trade rumor roundup: Lots of talk Tuesday, no action

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    We warned you this could be a slow trade deadline — with the new CBA kicking in fully next summer teams are concerned about both the more regressive tax and the repeater taxes for going over the luxury tax line. Meaning teams that might normally take on more salary simply are hesitant now. Here is…

  10. Report: Dwight Howard mocked Kobe Bryant in All-Star locker room

    Feb 19, 2013, 11:56 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Let’s start out right here — take this report with a grain of salt. Actually, a handful of kosher salt. I say that because there was no buzz about this in Houston. I say take the salt because every NBA reporter in America who breaks these kind of stories was in Houston and it leaked…

  11. Jeremy Lin says he’s “thankful” he wasn’t voted as All-Star starter

    Feb 19, 2013, 2:08 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    It came down to about 45,000 votes. That’s how much separated eventual NBA All-Star Game MVP Chris Paul from being replaced as a starter by Jeremy Lin (who finished with 883,809 votes, more than 400,000 than teammate James Harden). Now that the All-Star weekend circus has moved on from Houston, Lin can be honest —…

  12. Chris Paul talks about winning All-Star Game MVP (VIDEO)

    Feb 18, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    Chris Paul is the best player in the NBA at orchestrating the game. Other guys — LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant — are more athletic and can take a game over with their skills, but CP3 is be more of a conductor. He can score, but he wants to control the game mentally and…

    Feb 18, 2013, 12:43 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers holds up the MVP trophy after the 2013 NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    HOUSTON — Chris Paul took home the MVP trophy from the 2013 All-Star game, as he led the West to a 143-138 win in the NBA’s midseason exhibition, and did so in a contest that was close and competitive down the stretch. The award often times goes to the player who scores the most points…

    NBA All-Star Griffin of the Clippers dunks as teammate Durant and All-Star Noah of the Bulls look on during the 2013 NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    HOUSTON — You know it’s an All-Star Game and all the seriousness that entails when Dwight Howard is launching and hitting threes, Howard and Blake Griffin are pretending to do acrobatics between quarters and the understated Tim Duncan is wearing some bright green Adidas Crazy Fast shoes. “I think that’ll be the only time you…

  15. Chris Paul, Tony Parker make Chris Bosh look bad (VIDEO)

    Feb 17, 2013, 11:09 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Paul of the Clippers takes the ball past All-Star Bosh of the Heat during the NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    Chris Bosh did not have a good first half. There was the 2-of-7 shooting with three airballs. There was some odd defensive choices like giving Chris Paul an uncontested layup to take away a potential lob to Blake Griffin. But these two plays by Paul and Tony Parker made him look worse than anything. Mocking…

  17. Report: Clippers, Jazz talking Bledsoe for Millsap trade

    Feb 17, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Los Angeles Clippers remain hesitant to deal young guard Eric Bledsoe — he’s a valuable part of the “tribe called bench” that has been a big part of Los Angeles’ success, plus he is their insurance at the point should Chris Paul unexpectedly decide to sign elsewhere this summer. But as the offers get…

  18. Report: Clippers say they are not shopping Bledsoe, Jordan

    Feb 16, 2013, 6:51 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan,Spencer Hawes

    Well, what else is the Clipper front office going to say? “Sure, we’re desperate to move them, so send in your lowball offers now!” You always say you aren’t moving a guy until you move the guy. That said, there seems to be some real truth to the report that the Clippers are not looking…

  19. Report: Clippers and Celtics still discussing a Kevin Garnett trade

    Feb 16, 2013, 1:38 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    You may remember hearing some rumblings about this a few weeks back, but apparently the interest hasn’t died down. The Celtics and Clippers have been rumored as potential trade partners before, and that makes some sense. Boston is going to need to rebuild at some point, and the Clippers have a chance at a title…

    BKN-NBA-CLIPPERS-LAKERS

    HOUSTON — Chris Paul is having one of his best overall seasons, leading a deep and talented Clippers team to top-tier status playing among the elite in the Western Conference. Paul’s importance as the main cog that keeps the Clippers machine running was spotlighted recently, when his team struggled with a record of just 2-7…

  21. Clippers use fast start, hot three-point shooting to get blowout win over Lakers

    Feb 15, 2013, 2:03 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin

    The Lakers hosted the Clippers in the second half of the televised double-header on Thursday, and with the first game between the Thunder and the Heat running a little long, almost five minutes had gone by in the first quarter in Los Angeles before the national audience saw any of it. By the time TNT…

  22. Are the Rockets in the market for Josh Smith? Maybe not quite yet.

    Feb 14, 2013, 5:10 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks Josh Smith reacts during the final moments of the fourth quarter of Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Trade speculation surrounding Josh Smith is in full swing. The Brooklyn Nets and San Antonio Spurs have been reported as potential landing spots, but there may not be a more attractive trading partner for the Hawks given their rebuilding process than the Houston Rockets. Despite lacking a “big name” who can be moved, Houston has…

  23. Carmelo amazed with LeBron’s run, but says don’t give him MVP yet

    Feb 13, 2013, 7:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony reacts in front of Los Angeles Clippers Jamal Crawford after three-point shot in NBA game in New York

    Carmelo Anthony is as impressed as everyone else with LeBron James’ historic run — six games in a row with more than 30 points and shooting better than 70 percent overall in that stretch. It’s getting LeBron mentioned in the same breath with Jordan. Which is jumping the gun a bit. And so is just…

  24. Nets’ GM King believes in Deron Williams. Not that he has a choice.

    Feb 12, 2013, 10:48 AM EDT

    Deron Williams

    The Nets are invested in Deron Williams. He was the first star they got, trading with the Utah Jazz in a surprise move before they had moved out of New Jersey. They worked hard to keep him and gave him a max contract. Now he’s finally got some healthy other stars around him such as…
