    Oct 20, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Maybe there is something special about those powder blue with sleeves uniforms of the Clippers. Or maybe Chris Paul just loves Las Vegas. Whatever the case, CP3 went off in a preseason game against Denver and dropped 40 points in Los Angeles’ 118-111 overtime win at Mandalay Bay. Doc Rivers decided to stretch the legs…

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul reacts during their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    When you see footage like this of one of the game’s best players picking up a ball and swishing a half-court shot without even thinking about it, it’s a nice reminder of just how ridiculously skilled these guys are at their chosen craft. Chris Paul became the latest to get caught on video showcasing his…

  3. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Phoenix Suns

    Oct 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe

    Last season: Believe it or not, the Suns actually had playoff aspirations when the regular season began. The front office believed that Michael Beasley would be different in Phoenix than he had been anywhere else, and mandated that he be given a chance to be a difference-maker in the lineup. Once it became clear that…

  4. Chris Paul, J.J. Redick bury hatchet on long-running feud

    Oct 17, 2013, 8:39 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, J.J. Redick

    Chris Paul and J.J. Redick didn’t get along. It started down on Tobacco Road, where Redick started at Duke and Paul at Wake Forest, but it was more than just that. This was Redick punched Paul when they met at the Jordan camp kind of feud. (Truth be told, I had a little more respect…

  5. PBT Roundtable: Who is poised for a breakout season?

    Oct 16, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    John Henson

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable, just like the knights of King Arthur, drink mead and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question: Which player do you expect to have a breakout season? Kurt Helin: After spending an entire summer pumping up Toronto’s Jonas Valanciunas, I’ll go with……

    Oct 16, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    Last season: The Clippers finished the regular season with a franchise best 56 wins, good enough for the fourth seed in the West and home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs over the Memphis Grizzlies. L.A. went up two games to none in the series, before Memphis came back to win the…

    chris paul players union president

    Jordan Brand launched Chris Paul‘s latest signature shoe this week, the CP3.VII. In the video clip above, Paul tries explaining a “riquickulous” move he made in his new sneakers, but as you can see, it gets a little convoluted since it all happened so fast. There are a couple more spots that are similarly-themed, including…

  8. DeAndre Jordan gets loose for the fast break slam (VIDEO)

    Oct 13, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    DeAndre Jordan is going to be possibly the most important player for the Clippers this season. Doc Rivers has already tabbed him as being part of the team’s so-called Big Three along with Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, and Rivers has been grooming Jordan to use his athleticism to anchor the defense much in the…

  9. Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, CP3 swing by Jimmy Kimmel (VIDEO)

    Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan

    I’m sure you didn’t watch Jimmy Kimmel last night because you were reading “The Moons of Jupiter” by Alice Munro, so here is what you missed when the Clippers’ Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan swung by the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live. 1. It takes two buffalos to make a pair of Kanye-style…

  10. Rockets, Pacers get crazy welcome in Philippines

    Oct 7, 2013, 2:44 PM EDT

    Orlando Johnson

    Basketball and the NBA are huge in the Philippines — remember the games over there during the lockout? It was wild. But the NBA had never taken a game there — until Thursday, when the Rockets and Pacers will face off over there. The two teams will play in Manila then travel for a second…

  11. Doc Rivers says he didn’t want Clippers to trade DeAndre Jordan for Kevin Garnett

    Oct 5, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    At one point during the prolonged and somewhat messy divorce between Doc Rivers and the Celtics that resulted in the veteran head coach landing in Los Angeles to coach the Clippers, a “side deal” was in place that would have sent DeAndre Jordan to Boston in exchange for Kevin Garnett. The league doesn’t allow multi-step…

  12. Blake Griffin: “Lob City is done”

    Oct 3, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Bringing in Doc Rivers as coach has brought a palpable change around the Clippers — they are expected to contend for a title. Rivers is his usual positive self, but he doesn’t shy away from title talk. Rather, he is challenging the Clippers to live up to it — he told Chris Paul that the…

  13. LeBron James tops NBA’s worldwide jersey sales list

    Oct 2, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    LeBron James is coming off of back-to-back NBA titles and consecutive regular season MVP awards, while being widely recognized as the best basketball player on the planet. That last part was recently hammered home from a global popularity standpoint, as well. LeBron topped the league’s worldwide jersey sales list, in figures released on Wednesday. From…

  14. Pelican’s Eric Gordon out first couple weeks of preseason, just as a precaution

    Oct 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Eric Gordon played in 42 games last season for New Orleans due to battling ankle issues, which led to another surgery in May. That was better than the 9 games the season before that. For those of you counting at home, that’s 51 games since he was traded to New Orleans as a cornerstone in…

  15. Chris Paul: Doc Rivers told me I’m nothing

    Oct 1, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    I can’t stand the championship-or-bust ethos in the NBA. Plenty of great players have never won titles, and many more bad players have. Of course, championships should remain a piece of the puzzle when evaluating players, but only a piece and definitely not the largest piece. The same issue exists on a team level, too.…

  16. Chris Paul shows up Chinese street baller (VIDEO)

    Sep 25, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    BASKET-CHN-US-NBA

    Chinese street baller “More Free” decided to try to show up Chris Paul in an exhibition game while CP3 was going through Asia promoting Nike. More Free chose…. poorly. Chris Paul is a good defender in part because of great instincts and in part because of quick hands. On offense, he’s patient and just wears…

    Roger Mason Jr. Hornets

    When we last heard from Roger Mason Jr., he was planning to run for the players’ union’s presidency, and was even considered likely to be the one to win the job based on several years of experience in dealing with union matters. That was before LeBron James briefly considered the role, and before Chris Paul…

  18. Report: NBA, players union nowhere near deal on HGH testing

    Sep 23, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    needle, syringe, drug

    To hear NBA Commissioner David Stern or commissioner in waiting Adam Silver tell it, the NBA has been working on setting up Human Growth Hormone (HGH) testing and is close, it’s just waiting for the players union to agree. There was even a report last March saying it could be in place for this coming…

  19. How many “real” point guards are there in the NBA? Gary Payton says three.

    Sep 17, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game 5

    The NBA game is different then when Gary Payton was a lock down defender on his way to a Hall of Fame career — in 2000 the NBA took away hand checking and any contact on the perimeter, a year later zone defenses were permitted again in the NBA. Payton told us at PBT earlier…

  20. Jrue Holiday says his goal is to be more efficient this season

    Sep 17, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    Jrue Holiday had a good season last year — he was an All-Star who averaged 17.7 points and 8 assists a game. He took on a lot more of the Philadelphia offense and produced some good numbers. But not efficient ones — he shot 43.1 percent overall, a respectable 36 percent from three but he…

  22. Magic to use Victor Oladipo at both guard spots

    Sep 13, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Victor Oladipo

    At Summer League, the Orlando Magic decided to play just drafted Victor Oladipo at the point in what was seen then as an experiment — could the rookie really play the position? The answer seemed to be no. Or at best, he has a lot of work to do before you put him there. But…

  23. Damian Lillard sets goal of being All-Star

    APTOPIX Rookie of Year Basketball

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