Chris Paul

  1. With Silver, NBA gets same business with softer face

    Oct 26, 2012, 11:50 AM EDT

    NBA Commissioner David Stern Announces Retirement

    Things are not going to change much. There will come a time, just a few years into his tenure as commissioner, when Adam Silver will walk out on the stage at the NBA Draft and be instantly booed by fans. Just as David Stern has been for years. A lot of things will stay the…

  2. NBA season preview: New Orleans Hornets

    Oct 26, 2012, 10:40 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Houston Rockets

    Last Season: The player the franchise had built itself around, Chris Paul, decided he wanted out before last season began. He did so in a far less-aggravating way than his superstar counterparts (we’re looking at you, Mr. Anthony and Mr. Howard), but he did it just the same. Since the key piece the Hornets received in…

  3. Video: Another day, another CP3 to Blake Griffin ally-oop

    Oct 26, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul puts his arm around teammate Griffin during NBA basketball game against the Memphis Grizzlies in Los Angeles

    They make it look routine. There are challengers to the “most entertaining team in the NBA” crown that for my money the Clippers still have. OKC is always good, Denver is going to be one of those teams this year but the Clippers are just fun. They have Chris Paul throwing lobs to Blake Griffin.…

  4. NBA Season Preview: Houston Rockets

    Oct 25, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Kevin McHale, Jeremy Lin

    Last Season: Riding a deep roster and the creativity of a coaching staff and front office to cover up their weaknesses with in-season trades, the Rockets were in the playoff hunt into the season’s final days only to fall short and finish 9th in the West. They battled injury, illness, and the transition to new…

  5. Video: Bledsoe no-look to DeAndre Jordan ally-oop slam

    Oct 25, 2012, 2:12 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    You can take Chris Paul and Blake Griffin out of the picture, and the Clippers still have the best highlights in the land. This was Eric Bledsoe with the no-look ally-oop pass to DeAndre Jordan (who has had some impressive nights this preseason). And there you have the dunk of the night. Other teams will…

  6. Seven players who need to answer doubters, have big years

    Oct 24, 2012, 6:37 PM EDT

    John Wall

    It’s time gentlemen. Step up or be swept to the side. There are a lot of players in the NBA who need to answer questions we have about them, but maybe none more than the seven below. These are players who either need to show how good they are to get paid next summer; or…

  7. GM Survey: Where Darko Milicic is underrated and Carmelo Anthony is MVP

    Oct 22, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Everyone has that buddy that acts perfectly logical and sane, but forces you to reevaluate your friendship after he blurts out something like, “Carlos Boozer is going to win MVP this year!” Well, good news everyone: NBA General Managers are just like you, me, and your friend you can no longer take seriously. Let’s take…

  8. The case for why Chris Paul is staying with the Clippers

    Oct 21, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is technically back in that same spot so many stars have been in over the past few years which has resulted in a transition of teams. He’s a free agent at the end of this season with his contract expiring. He would have been a free agent this summer but as part of…

  9. Jamal Crawford added working on his game to his summer to do list

    Oct 19, 2012, 1:37 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford drive

    NBA players are in the top one percent of the top one percent of basketball players. You simply won’t find a more talented group of ballers on the planet than the guys who suit up in the association. Talent alone, though, normally doesn’t get a player to the top of their profession. It takes more…

  10. Chauncey Billups targets November return to Clippers

    Oct 18, 2012, 11:41 AM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups timetable for return just keeps moving up. He suffered a torn surgery left Achilles’ tendon — a tough injury to recover from at any age — but had the surgery and promised a comeback. His original optimistic timetable was December, but he has recovered to the point he is practicing with the team…

  11. Video: Another day, another CP3 to Griffin ally-oop dunk

    Oct 18, 2012, 10:53 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul celebrates with Griffin after Griffin scored against the Memphis Grizzlies during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    What does it say about us as fans that this kind of play between two of the league’s superstars is so routine as to make us think “that was nice, but they’ve done much better?” Anyway, here is Chris Paul‘s ally-opp to Blake Griffin in transition from Wednesday night against the Jazz. Monster jam. Yawn.…

  12. Odds on NBA MVP (yes, LeBron leads), Rookie of Year

    Oct 17, 2012, 2:23 PM EDT

    James of the U.S. hugs teammate Durant after their game against Lithuania at their men's preliminary round Group A basketball match at the Basketball Arena during the London 2012 Olympic Games

    If you don’t have LeBron James, Kevin Durant on top of your “most likely to win the MVP” list you’re doing it wrong. Professional odds makers don’t do it wrong. So when the guys at offshore book Bovada put together a list, you know who is at the top. But the real value is farther…

  13. Tuesday And-1 links: Seattle arena takes another step (plus Basketball Prospectus)

    Seattle SuperSonics v Denver Nuggets

    Here is 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 presidential candidates like watering down debates. • We told you the other…

  14. NBA season preview: L.A. Clippers

    Oct 16, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Last Season: Perhaps it was the start of a cultural change in Clipperland, or maybe it was simply the beginning of a very short-term spike of relative success. Either way, your 2011-12 Clippers were competitive, fun to watch, and a team that made its way into the playoffs — three qualities that have been completely…

  15. Even in preseason, risks of small ball begin to show

    Oct 15, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Matt Barnes, Ray Allen

    In Shanghai we saw it — Chris Bosh and the assortment of other Heat centers could do little to slow the bigger, stronger DeAndre Jordan short of fouling him. With Chris Paul feeding him the rock, Jordan shot 8-for-8 in a Clippers win. In Hartford we saw it — the Knicks went to the Raymond…

  16. Chris Paul to make preseason debut Sunday

    Oct 13, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is back in action. After offseason thumb surgery for an injury sustained in Team USA practice, Paul was only cleared for basketball activity in the last week. But late Friday night, the Clippers announced that Paul’s going to get run in the Clippers’ preseason game Sunday: Paul, who was medically cleared for full…

  17. Rajon Rondo explains why he is best point guard in NBA

    Oct 10, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo is convinced he is the best point guard in the NBA. We’ve heard him say it before, laughed to ourselves (or rolled our eyes), patted him on the back and said, “sure you are, kid” then moved on. But Rondo isn’t backing down. And in the cover story of the current edition of…

  18. Winderman: Wade’s move to Li-Ning good for marketplace

    Oct 9, 2012, 9:08 PM EDT

    Dwyade Wade

    Left unclear by Dwyane Wade‘s move from Jordan Brand to Chinese brand Li-Ning is whether he had opted for innovation or simply was not offered what he believed to be a commensurate deal. But that’s not the point. The point is this: When the Miami Heat, still arguably the NBA’s most high-profile team, take the…

  19. Chris Paul returns… just don’t expect to see him vs. Heat

    Oct 9, 2012, 3:03 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul was back on the court with his Clippers teammates. Held back by doctors after off-season thumb surgery, he has been cleared for full-contact practices and is out there getting run. That’s the good news. It doesn’t mean we are going to get to see him against the Miami Heat as the two teams…

  20. Monday And-1 links: Royce White joins Rockets; more camp notes

    Oct 8, 2012, 11:05 PM EDT

    Royce White

  21. NBA uses stars to demonstrate flops that will be fined

    Oct 5, 2012, 6:41 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Tony Parker, flop

    Since the NBA announced they were going to be reviewing potential flops at the league office the next day, and fining players determined to have flopped, the big question has been “where will they draw the line?” Friday, the league released a video showing what would and would not draw a flop (that video is…

  22. Video: 90 Chris Pauls cut a swath through Los Angeles

    Oct 5, 2012, 2:07 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Chris Paul

    The headline is a little misleading, Chris Paul doesn’t cut a swath through L.A. in this video, just Venice Beach. Which is it’s own, interesting, subset of Los Angeles. It’s one of the most visited, most iconic parts of L.A., but it’s not L.A. No one place is. That’s the great thing about the city.…

  23. Iverson playing exhibition in China against Marbury’s team

    Oct 3, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    iverson-turkey

    Heck, I’d pay to see this. Maybe more than the Heat/Clippers exhibition games that tip off in China in just more than a week. Allen Iverson and Jason Williams are going to play in an exhibition game in Beijing against Stephon Marbury and his team, the Beijing Ducks. Other guys playing on the NBA alumni…

  24. Odom wants to apologize to Mavs fans, Cuban for last season

    Oct 2, 2012, 6:45 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom’s fall from Sixth Man of the Year and NBA title holder to guy the Dallas Mavericks told to just go away and don’t come near the rest of the players was fast and public. Odom invited it all in when he married a Kardashian and became a reality television star, but when he…

  25. Rose says he helped recruit Kirk Hinrich back to Chicago

    Oct 2, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    It is the way of the world now — superstar NBA players recruit their teammates. See Miami. See Chris Paul essentially play GM for the Clippers at points this summer. See the Celtics players courting guys to come in with them. That is not his style, but Derrick Rose is going to have to become…
