    Amare Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler, Carmelo Anthony

    The New York Knicks are going to win a playoff game this year. For the first time since 2001. Having Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire together for a full season will boost the offense, having Tyson Chandler along the back line will turn them from terrible to average on defense (or maybe a little better,…

    Last year, the Clippers were the hot new girl at the party in Los Angeles. You couldn’t take your eyes off her but there was nothing serious going on, it was all flirting and fun. Now, things are getting serious. The Chris Paul trade has the Clippers feeling like we all thought about the Oklahoma…

    KevinJohnson and Gavin Maloof laugh

    We expect the Sacramento Kings arena news to pick up now that we’re about three months away from the March 1 deadline for the city to have funding in place. That deadline has put Kevin Johnson and his Think Big Sacramento effort on a tight, tight schedule, but so far they appear to be on…

    Last season: 35-46, 10 games out of the playoffs in the West.

    Image (1) dsterling-thumb-250x250-18407.jpg for post 3716

    Wednesday night the Clippers went from “good young team with potential” to “these guys are close to being contenders.” The Clippers are not title contenders yet. Not until we see them play better and consistent defense. Not until we’re convinced Vinny Del Negro can coach a team to a championship. Not with the stopgap Chauncey…

    Last season: 57-25, second seed in the Western Conference playoffs. The trip to the postseason was shorter than usual for the then-back-to-back defending champs, as they were unceremoniously swept out of the second round by the eventual champion Mavericks.

    Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul

    The Los Angeles Lakers lost a battle for a superstar with the Los Angeles Clippers. The last time that happened… come on, that never happened before. But now Chris Paul is a Clipper and the Lakers are pissed off. Not really at the Clippers, who Lakers fans never had a rivalry with — they view…

    Dec 14, 2011, 11:30 PM EDT

    chris-paul-blake-griffin

    Blake Griffin is going to have it different. That’s what the Wednesday night trade of Chris Paul to Griffin’s Clippers represents. There’s been a precedent set in this league, where great players have their youths squandered on poor teams, suffering without help. The most notable has been Kevin Garnett, and after him, LeBron James, whose…

  23. Lamar Odom felt disrespected by Lakers

    Dec 14, 2011, 9:04 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom takes his business personally. NBA players use a variation of the line “this is a business” about the NBA more than they say they “gave 110 percent” or that they “left it all on the floor.” It is as common as NBA groupies around he league. But the Lakers almost trading him to…

    Dec 13, 2011, 9:02 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, Quincy Pondexter

    The entire Chris Paul saga reminds me of the NBA lockout, just flipped on its head. In the lockout, the owners and league made wild demands of the players, and since the owners had the leverage they got most of what they wanted (they got the money, which is what mattered most). With CP3, the…
